Episode 20: Discovering Resonant Skincare Combinations + Favorite AM/PM Routines Lately

In recent months I’ve come across some really beautiful skincare combinations – for example certain oils with certain essences/toners because of complementary scent; an aloe-based serum atop an oil for maximum hydration; and mixing an oil into an exfoliant to cater to sensitive skin. I talk through these skincare discoveries I’ve made, as well as share my recent favorite AM/PM skincare routines from start to finish. If you receive the Beauty Heroes and/or Boxwalla beauty subscription boxes, this may also give you some new ideas for how to pair or layer your products as I highlight many of those recent discoveries. I end with discussing some “extras” like masks, and a few “up and coming” products that just entered my testing queue.
