When it comes to beauty, there are a few things you should splurge on and that’s your skincare routine. Although there are tons of expensive beauty products out there that claim to be magic in a bottle, there’s nothing worse than spending $100 on a cream that doesn’t live up to it’s expectations. That being said, you guys know I test A LOT of product! Over the years, there have been many new products that I’ve loved, some really expensive and some in-expensive. Today, I wanted to share my ultimate luxury beauty products that are ACTUALLY worth the splurge. These are the products I constantly rely on, the products that never leave my bathroom vanity! If you’re looking to invest in some beauty products, I stand by these and promise you they won’t leave you with buyer’s remorse!
1. La Mer Moisturizing Cream
You guys I swear there’s a reason why people are willing to shell out $90 for this moisturizer – it really works! This nutrient-rich cream has been a cult favorite of mine for years. And if I run out of the moisturizing cream, I love the soft cream and gel cream just as much! Plus, a little goes a long way, so the jar lasts a longer time than you think.
2. Drunk Elephant T.L.C Sukari Babyfacial
They don’t call it the babyfacial for nothing! This is magic in a bottle you guys! The formula contains 25% alpha hydroxy acid and a 2% blend of glycolic, tartaric, lactic, citric, and salicylic acids. In other words, this is a really strong at-home facial, but the other ingredients balance out the potency and leave your skin feeling radiant, glowy and even.
3. Tatcha The Dewy Skin Cream
Tatcha is Meghan Markle’s favorite skin-care brand so you really can’t go wrong here ha! I love moisturizing creams like this that give the skin a natural glow and pair well with makeup so you can double it up as a base. And if you guys have tried the infamous Luminous Dewy Skin Mist, this moisturizer is the perfect pairing with it! Tatcha really perfected this purple-toned formula to give the perfect amount of texture, feeling, application on the skin. Mario Dedivanovictric’s tip is to apply this cream with a beauty blender, after primer because the primer acts to smooth out certain areas, and then the moisturizer is a base for the makeup to just glide on and look more glowy.
4. Rodin Olio Lusso Oil
This body oil is responsible for making my moisturizing goals come true. And it’s not just any body oil, it is full of rich nutrients like Rosehip, Neroli and Evening Primose to help with collagen production. It has 11 essentials oils that are rich in Vitamins like A, B1, B2, B6, C, and E! I love to use it right after the shower or before bed. And since this stuff is so pricey, a few drops really goes a long way. I used to stray away from using oils like this because I would hate the oily residue left on my hands, but this formula never leaves a sticky feeling behind.
5. Goldfaden MD Doctor's Scrub
I mentioned this product in my 10 products I can’t live without video so you guys know it’s crucial to my skincare routine! This exfoliator truly has one of the best formula’s I’ve ever put on my skin, it’s so velvety and soft on the skin, yet really works to scrub off every inch of dead skin and leaves your skin feeling softer than ever.
6. iS Clinical Active Serum
When my skin starts acting up, this serum is my go-to because it’s known to provide speedy results. It contains a few key active ingredients like glycolic acid, lactic acid, and glycerin to exfoliate the surface of the skin all while helping clogged pores and brightening existing spots.
7. Patrick Ta Major Glow Body Oil
This past year my super talented friend and make-up artist extrodanoire, Patrick Ta came out with his own collection of beauty products called the Glow Collection and they are nothing short of amazing! This glow body oil has been my absolute favorite, it just gives my skin the most beautiful bronzy glow that makes it look like I just got back from Hawaii!
8. Biossance Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil
Biossance is one of my absolute favorite clean beauty brands! This oil has the perfect cocktail made up of squalene, Vitamin C, and rose extract which all combine to help moisturize, brighten, and add radiance to your skin. What I love most about this oil is the consistency, it’s super thin and is one of the fastest-absorbing oils I’ve ever tried.
