2016 Desert Island Products: Skincare

Getting trapped on a desert island is an irrational fear of mine, so what better than a blog post detailing my suspiciously thought out plans for if and when it happens? Hello, have you seen LOST? I have not, but I digress.

Getting stranded anywhere without quality skincare is scary. Why? My skin is a diva. I can't just let nature take its course. I tried that route once and my face was so congested and dry it hurt! #Abuse


1. Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water

We're on a desert island, so I'm thinking there's salt water nearby. Yeah, no, I'm not cleansing my face with that. Maybe I'm going too literal with the "desert island" thing, but I'll definitely be bringing my own cleansing water anywhere I travel. It's a fast, easy, sure-bet. Hard water in your janky motel room? No worries, Garnier got yo back. Plus, it's cheap.

2. Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+

This is a brand new find for me, and I'm obsessed. Moisturizer-wise, I've tried everything. I scoffed at the idea that such a lightweight moisturizer as this could keep my severely dry skin hydrated "all day." But honestly? It's working very well so far. I'm really thrilled and the price is so right for a high-end product. You can get a giant 4+ ounce pump (completely unheard of size) for $26 at Sephora. I die. Since you only need a little bit morning and light, it'll last forever

3. Supergoop! City Sunscreen Serum SPF 30

When it comes to anti-aging, nothing's going to do it better than preventative care products. My favorite SPF product is Supergoop's City Sunscreen Serum. OMG, it feels like a dream, and it's also a specialized serum that evens out your skin texture over time. It also locks in extra moisture to keep your skin dewy and youthful-looking. A summer essential!
