A few weeks ago, I participated in the AOL Fall 2015 Beauty Awards with a great group of Lifestyle Collective bloggers . A group of us were in charge of judging the best products of the year in skin, makeup, nails, and hair. My focus was on skin and after trying tons of different serums, face wash, creams, and balms, I found some standouts that you have to add to your arsenal of products.
The 100% Pure Eucalyptus Seafoam Facial Cleanser was fantastic. This was great for my oily skin without drying it out and the scent was also really nice. This face wash was voted the winner both by the judges and AOL audience, so if you need a new face wash, go grab this one.
Guys, the Josie Maran Pure Argan Oil was my favorite product. I jumped on the face oil bandwagon last year and haven't looked back. My skin has never felt better since using oils and this one is amazing. A tiny bit goes a long way and my skin felt moisturized and refreshed after using this at nighttime. The C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve was another favorite of mine and was also voted the overall best lip balm. If you haven't tried this product already, put it on your list. It's perfect for dry winter skin, goes on smooth, and never gets caky.
I also really loved the Gr8 Skn Clean Foaming Facewash. It's sulfate-free and left my skin feeling super clean without any nasty build-up.
The Jurlique Rose Love Balm was another winner for me. It can be used for chapped lips, dry skin, or anywhere that skin is irritated or dry. It's rose-scented (not too strong) and the salve isn't pasty or too thick. It's ideal for the winter months and anytime that your skin is feeling dry or harsh.
