My Top Skincare Products For 2021

Being a skincare junkie means I’m always trying and testing the latest in skincare trends and top skincare products however I always find myself coming back to these products on my top skincare list for 2021, more often than any viral product.

My skin type is very dry skin with keratosis pilaris, a type of eczema and here is what works best for me:

Makeup Remover

The Ordinary Squalene Cleanser

Cruelty and vegan free, this squalene cleanser removes all traces of makeup, including waterproof mascara with just one application. Over time you will notice an improved skin texture without stripping your skins natural barriers.
