My Skincare Routine

My skincare routine hasn't changed much since I was in my twenties. I still use anti-ageing cream (you can never start too early) and nowadays I make it a point to religiously wash my face every morning and every night. However, the products that I use have changed a lot over the years. I try to focus on cruelty free, all natural products, essential oils and an all around more gentle approach to my skincare. I figured it would be fun to share with you some of the products that I use.

Destiny's Boutique
Charcoal Facial Bar Soap
I just recently bought this charcoal bar soap. My search for a natural face wash that didn't have alcohol  in it was becoming difficult. Then I came across this charcoal soap and I have to say, I'm pretty impressed. This soap leaves my skin feeling clean and not dried out like the other face washes I was using. Best of all, it's all natural, cruelty free and alcohol free.

Acure Eye Cream
Superfruit+Chlorella Growth Factor
I found this eye cream at Target a year ago and I've loved it ever since. I use this around my eyes and I can feel a definite difference after I use it. This eye cream is unique in the fact that it has edelweiss stem cells and chlorella in it that helps stimulate the growth of collagen and reduces wrinkles.

Oliology Vitamin E Oil
Theraputic Grade
This stuff is amazing. Instead of using face lotion I apply this onto my face and it leaves my skin feeling hydrated. Surprisingly, it isn't greasy because it dissolves into the skin. I use this every morning and night after I've washed my face. Best of all it boosts collagen production.

Aside from these products, I always try and make sure to put good things into my body. Like lots of water, fruit high in antioxidants, less sugar and less dairy. Staying out of the sun helps a lot too!


  1. You have a great approach to your skin care, Danielle. The charcoal soap is interesting! I love essential oils and will have to look for the sweet almond oil. Thanks for the tips! Your skin is amazing, by the way!

    1. Thanks, Terri! Let me know if you pick up any of that charcoal soap. It's awesome.
      Also, thank you for the comment. That means a lot to me.
