Skincare Showdown with Vanessa Hutchinson-Szekely

Skincare Showdown with Vanessa Hutchinson-Szekely

Last week’s cool mom, Vanessa, knows a lot about good skin stuff.  She shared so many great faves in her post that I thought they needed some singular attention.  

Here she is with all the products and accompanying plugs:

“Since the age of 12….or as long as I can remember...I’ve been thinking about my skin. Initially due to puberty’s outcry on my face and then in my pore minimizing life search, and general love of applying creams/oils to my body. Outside of my prescription Retin A…..my favorite skincare products right now are (in order of application)...

CLEANSER:
 Kiehl’s Ultra facial cleanser

 (so many [cleansers] in rotation but I’m digging the feel and smell of these ones and how they remove makeup) too)

EXFOLIATOR: 

Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 (works MAGIC on the everlasting hunt to tighten pores. If you haven’t tried an acid exfoliant, run don’t walk.)

SERUM: 

MY CURRENT TOTAL MUST HAVE PRODUCT… “C” Perfect Skin by Nieves.

Biore’s UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence Sunscreen (it’s SPF 50 and texture is gel like and sinks in so quickly),

Still looking for an amazing eye cream, and really want to try Elta MD sunscreen and Sunday Riley’s Good Genes.

SokoGlam, & Into the Gloss are some of my go-to beauty blogs.”
