My first, and most expensive, piece of staple skin care is my Clairsonic Mia 1. This brush is absolutely amazing, it makes my skin feel great after I use it and it has really helped with clearing up my acne. While it is on the pricier side I think that if you can get it, get it. It will completely change your skin care routine. If you can't afford it right not, however, the Olay brush is really good too and I used it before I got this. Now I just take the Olay one with me when I travel because it's smaller and lighter.
I use two different toners, depending on how my skin is doing. Either I use the Clean and Clear deep cleansing astringent on pretty good days and I use the Stridex pads when my skin needs that extra kick in the pants to clear itself up. The best thing about Stridex? It comes with it's own cotton rounds!
I have to daytime lotion staples, my Simple Skin Care protecting lotion and then my Garnier BB Cream in Fair/Light. When it's really dry I will use both but if it's hot and gross outside I'll only use the Simple lotion. That is, unless I am going somewhere, then I will use the BB Cream as a light foundation- especially during the summer time.
My final product is my Argan Oil eye cream which I just reviewed here. I found this eye cream at Marshalls and I absolutely adore it! The consistency is great, there is no scent, and it's a very generous amount for the price that I paid for it.
So that's it for my staple skin care, I really hope you enjoyed this post. What is in your staple skin care stash? I would love to know! XOXO
