Skincare Well Worth Adding to Your Stash

skincare worth it

Tarte Frxxxtion Stick 3-in-1 Exfoliating Cleanser, Herbivore Phoenix Cell Regenerating Facial Oil, Nip + Fab Soften Kale Fix Moisturizer, these are just some of the skincare picks that are rocking my world at the moment.

Here are a few skincare picks well worth adding to your stash (believe me, after you’ve tried them, you’ll be singing their praises too!).

Tarte Frxxxtion Stick 3-in-1 Exfoliating Cleanser (Review)
I admit to having my doubts about a stick exfoliating cleanser but Tarte’s new 3-in-1 exfoliating stick has been rocking my socks off! This non-drying exfoliating scrub smooths, refines, and softens skin without leaving it tight. My skin looks brighter after I use it and my skin just looks smoother and softer courtesy this formula! Loves it!

L’Oreal Pure-Clay Mask Exfoliate and Refine Pores (Review)
Here’s another skincare pick I was skeptical about! L’Oreal has three new mud masks and the exfoliate and refine pores one is becoming a quick favorite of mine. This gentle yet effective mask leaves my skin smooth, bright, and soft without stripping it or leaving it dry!

Nip + Fab Soften Kale Fix Moisturizer (Review)
Nip + Fab surprises and delights with this lightweight yet highly moisturizing formula that absorbs easily and leave skin super soft.

Herbivore Phoenix Cell Regenerating Facial Oil (Review)
Herbivore’s facial oil formula doesn’t come cheap but it is worth the splurge. This highly moisturizing facial oil leaves my face soft, smooth, and happy!

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Eye Rescue (Review)
Magic Eye Rescue is on my top moisturizing eye creams of all time list. This formula is highly moisturizing and leaves the skin around my eyes super soft. I can’t recommend this enough for those who struggle with concealer application, finer lines due to dryness, or just general under eye dryness!

Cerave Skin Renewing Night Cream (Review)
I can’t believe more people aren’t using Cerave’s Night Cream! This rich, thick cream leaves my skin soft, smooth, and bright come the morning! It is an ideal pick for those with drier, flakier skin!

Philosophy Back to Nurture Deeply Replenishing Beauty Sleep Mask (Review)
If I was on a deserted island and they told me I could only take one facial mask with me this would be it! This thick gel-like mask can be applied after your nightly skincare and it acts to smooth, soften, and renew skin! In the morning, your skin will be crazy hydrated, soft, and incredibly smooth.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Everytime you’re posting about the Tarte Frxxxtion Stick 3-in-1 Exfoliating Cleanser, I’m just here, saying “ok, I want it, I need it, give it to me” ahah.

    Meanwhile, I just ordered the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel. i don’t know if you can find it in the US, but it might be something interesting for you. I mean, I think you might like it.

    Oh, another great product btw, really, really good :
    My skin is healthy and… Well, good-looking, and it’s amazing.

    • Isabella Muse

      That link didn’t work Clem! What was it for? I never tried Oskia Cleansing Gel 😀 added it to my list, see if I can track that one down 😀 haha! I really like the Tarte Stick! I’m on my 2nd one 😀

      • Clémence

        Oh, sh*t. I wanted to show you the Renew & Peel Super Serum by Sephora. I was very surprised – in my head, “skincare by Sephora” sounds like “meh ?” – because it’s very effective. After one week, my red patches almost disapear, and my spots too. And yet, I wouldn’t believe it.

  • Jeanine McAuliffe

    I love these post, by far my favorite! It is hard for me to keep up with every post so I love when you just summarize them for me. I can NOT wait to get the tarte stick, It’s been on my wishlist since it released. Have you tried the eye rescue mask gimmicks yet?

    • Isabella Muse

      Glad to hear it 🙂 I’m actually testing it! I’ll update ya shortly on results!

    I love your skincare suggestions – they are right up my alley. I am going to look for the Cerave , Nip and Fab and L’Oreal’s mud mask. These sound good to me.
