Over the years, I've shared a few thoughts here and there on my everyday skincare routine. In fact, I even shared a few words to the wise in my pseudo-birthday post this past May, but since I've never actually put pen to paper (err -- fingers to keyboard) in terms of my (current) skincare routine, I thought it might be nice to finally get it all down and share the products I've been loving lately (and many for even longer than that). Curious as to what skincare products I like to stock my medicine cabinet with all year long? Here's the low-down --

Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream - This is my all-time favorite face cream! I've been using it for years and have a hard time trying anything else because it just works so well! It sinks in quickly, doesn't have a heavy scent and always leaves my skin feeling very hydrated. I use it day and night and couldn't recommend it enough! 

Glossier Super Bounce - The Glossier hype is real, ya'll! I bought this on a whim a few months back and have found myself loving it, especially in this hot, hot, heat! It leaves my skin feeling smooth + super hydrated. 

Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser - I LOVE how soft this makes my skin feel! I like to switch up my cleansers throughout the week, but this one has been on heavy rotation lately. 

Glossier Super Glow - If I'm not using my Glossier Super Bounce, I'm using this bad boy to add a little glow to my complexion! They claim that it helps give you the "light from within" look, and I couldn't agree more! 

Thayer's Witch Hazel - I've been using this as a toner for years now and honestly couldn't love it more. I use it to tone my face daily, but also use it when I'm in a pinch and just need a quick refresh before running out the door sans makeup. It's pretty darn affordable too, and a bottle lasts forever! 

First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser - Another old favorite that I like to switch in and out of my routine. There really isn't anything fancy about this product, but it's truly a great cleanser that leaves your skin feeling super clean [Scott is also a fan of it too, just in case you were wondering-- ;) ].  

And there you have it -- my current skincare routine for a combination skin gal living in the dry desert heat! Now it's your turn to share your favorites! What skincare products do you swear by? Anything new that you've been loving lately? Also, if you have a favorite eye cream -- let a gal know won't ya! Thanks in advance, sweet friends!
