Cabinet Confidential: My Essential Skincare Products + DAILY ROUTINE

I'm constantly trying new products from drug to department store brands and everything in between, but the below is a snapshot my "skin-vestment"  favorites and go-to routine in the morning and night.

PREP & CLEANSE

I love how smooth and fully cleansed my skin feels when I use a a vibrating facial brush; currently I'm using (and loving!) the Clarisonic MIA Fit ($219).  As I mentioned above, I'm always rotating through different cleansers from bar soaps and melts to simple makeup eraser cloths. Right now I'm loving Dr Nassif Pure Hydration Gentle Cleanser ($32). For more cleansers and facial products that are on my radar, check out the latest Buzzworthy Highlights.

After cleansing and before my serums and lotions, I apply SK-II's Facial Treatment Essence ($99)— a splurge-worthy product with a major cult following.

MY A.M. ROUTINE

After washing my face in the morning, I like to use the following two serums in this order, followed by an eye cream and daily moisturizer with hyaluronic acid. In the summer months I'll make sure my moisturizer has SPF, and my current favorite in that department is below.

THE PICKSkinCeuticals C E Ferulic serum, $165
WHY IT'S HoF WORTHY: Here's where the little blurb of text goes that describes why this product is worth the investment and makes it into bobbie's hall of fame for skincare products. It is great, it is worth the investmetn, and so on and so on.

THE PICK: SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 gel, $82
WHY IT'S HoF WORTHY: Here's where the little blurb of text goes that describes why this product is worth the investment and makes it into bobbie's hall of fame for skincare products. It is great, it is worth the investmetn, and so on and so on.

THE PICK: Laneige Water Bank eye gel, $36
WHY IT'S HoF WORTHY: Here's where the little blurb of text goes that describes why this product is worth the investment and makes it into bobbie's hall of fame for skincare products. It is great, it is worth the investmetn, and so on and so on.

THE PICK: Dr Dennis Gross Dark Spot Sun Defense, $42
WHY IT'S HoF WORTHY:  Here's where the little blurb of text goes that describes why this product is worth the investment and makes it into bobbie's hall of fame for skincare products. It is great, it is worth the investmetn, and so on and so on.

MY P.M. ROUTINE

I always leave room to be flexible on my skincare routine since my skin doesn't feel or act the same every single day. Usually, however, I follow up my cleansing with retinol products, a night serum and moisturizing cream.

THE PICK: Dr Dennis Gross Ferulic + Retinol Wrinkle Recovery overnight serum, $84
WHY IT'S HoF WORTHY: Retinol is a magic ingredient for getting my "beauty sleep," and I couldn't live without it. I apply this splurge-worthy anti-aging serum that combines retinol, ferulic acid and niacinamide at night to help aid my skin’s natural repair process. 

THE PICK: SkinCeuticals Retinol 0.5, $64
WHY IT'S HoF WORTHY: Another favorite retinol product of mine is this ultra-potent night cream. While helping reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and blemishes and make your pores look smaller, too! Just keep in mind that this one has a higher concentration of retinol than other products, so you might want to talk to your dermatologist before using it!

THE PICK: REN Skincare Omega 3 skin serum, $42
WHY IT'S HoF WORTHY:  If I'm feeling like my skin dry or sensitive and needs a boost of TLC, I'll often apply a few drops of this serum.

THE PICK: Laneige Water Bank moisture cream, $35
WHY IT'S HoF WORTHY: I've been using this cream lately to give my skin a super-hydrated, glowy feel before bed. Made with a Patented Hydro Ionized Mineral Water—it's also infused with essential minerals like zinc, potassium, calcium, magnesium, manganese, and sodium.

AND AS FOR TREATMENTS...

THE PICK: Kate Somerville 'Exfolikate' intensive exfoliating treatment, $24
WHY IT'S HoF WORTHY: When I want a powerful exfoliation treatment that delivers a visible difference, this Kate Somerville is my go-to. It's strong stuff though, so use it sparingly.

THE PICK: Dr Dennis Gross Daily Peel Pads, $88
WHY IT'S HoF WORTHY: This two-part peel is another age-fighting treatment I swear by, and one that's gentle enough to use daily if desired.
