Foundation and skincare is what I’m okay with splurging on lately. Basically, a good base is essential, and this one looks amazing on the skin– soft and luminous, like skin. And it has a medium coverage that is buildable. I have a ton of minis of this, and once I’m out, I’m definitely going to get a full size.
If you’re on the hunt for something with a gel consistency, you’ll like this one. The gel texture makes it light and refreshing, but still hydrating. I especially love it in the morning.
One of my favorite cleansing gels that is light and gets makeup off really well. I have tried a ton of cleansers, and this one is so underrated.
Spring/summer heat is just around the corner and this face mist is one of my favorites to refresh and lightly hydrate. It feels amazing on the skin, and the simple ingredients are soothing and a great addition to any routine.
I’m definitely in the camp that believes SPF should be worn every single day, but it’s especially important in the spring/summer. This not only color corrects any redness and gives the skin a tad bit of coverage, but it has skin calming ingredients, and an SPF 30 via titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. It’s a love.
I know it’s a splurge, but you only need to use this once a week to notice a difference. Even if I don’t use other serums that have AHAs, and only use it once a week, I notice a difference in the clarity, glow, and texture of my skin. So this is an investment, but a sale is always a good time to invest.
Nothing wakes up my face quite like a cooling gel, and this one not only hydrates, but has some beneficial ingredients to brighten and soften things up. I love this one in the morning, especially on hot days. My combo skin can use this solo, but if necessary I can also top it off with something more moisturizing without it feeling like too much.
Again, spring and summer calls for a moisturizer that is a bit lighter. This one is very silky and lightweight, yet moisturizing so it’s perfect for spring. Plus, the ingredient list is a swoon from me.
… I mean, do I ever stop talking about this?
Resurfacing + gel based = perfect for spring/ summer. I like to use this at night when I want something lightweight, refreshing, and full of AHAs for glowier, brighter skin in the morning.
A great product to keep in your blemish fighting arsenal. This face mask has willow bark extract, a natural salicylic acid, along with AHAs to exfoliate away the dull, and the gel consistency feels cool to the touch. I do enjoy this face mask, but think the price is a little hefty so definitely get this one on sale if you’ve been wanting to try it.
Nothing like the smell of roses in the spring/summer + soft, refreshing hydration. I realize that I’m including a lot of moisturizers, but I’ve grown to love them, especially ones that aren’t your standard cream (although I’ve really come to love some cream moisturizers in the winter). This one has a very soft gel cream consistency and contains rosewater and aloe so it’s also soothing.
On the hunt for a new fresh scent? This perfume is very fresh and unique to everything I have in my collection. It feels like walking outside along the seaside on a nice spring day, a cool breeze blowing through your hair. Perfection.
If I had to recommend just one concealer for spot concealing, it would be this one. Like the name conveys, it has a soft matte finish with a medium to full coverage. It works great under the eyes too if you need more coverage, but does crease a little under my eyes.
Boujee maybe, but until this facial cotton has graced your face, it’s hard to explain how amazing it is. Regular old cotton pads from the drugstore are so scratchy in comparison. The skin on our face is especially delicate; I definitely condone investing in some good facial cotton.
It’s a pricey one, but clear skin is always in, amiright? Even though I’m trying to tailor this post to spring/summer-esque recommendations, this one is good year round tbh.
If you don’t want to invest the whole hog on just Good Genes, I highly recommend this duo that also features their famous retinol oil, Luna.
I love the gel cream consistency of this, especially in the mornings. It’s very refreshing and leaves the skin super soft and supple. It also has papaya enzymes to gently exfoliate so make sure you use SPF in the morning.
Have blemish prone skin? Your skin will love this. It’s not a greasy oil, and with consistent use I notice such a huge difference in the clarity and evenness of my skin.

I love face masking.. I think we know this. And I’m all for trying out new masks– this one being at the top of my ‘to try’ list
Another mask at the top of my ‘to try’ list. I hear magical things about it, and how it is hydrating, nourishing, and smoothing.
I love their sleeping mask so naturally this moisturizer has been on my radar since its launch.
Anything that promises to help with blemishes, I want on my face, and this one always gets high praise. I’ll probably end up buying this duo to try it out and get a baby back up of Blue Tansy since I’m running low.
Smoother, healthier, and more even looking skin? Sign me up.
Sleep on silk while reducing hair breakage and preventing premature wrinkles? Count. Me. In.
This mask has been taking over my Instagram feed. I wasn’t super interested at first, but it’s been so hyped up that FOMO is kicking in and I think I *need* to try it now.
I haven’t tried anything from Tatcha before, but this water cream has been on my wishlist for agesssss. Sounds like a good one for the spring/summer months.
I don’t think it’s any secret that I love gel consistencies, and this is another one I want to try from Tatcha.
