The skincare and makeup edition

For this month’s installment of GrrlPunch’s Favorite Things, I decided to rely on my own preferences. At first I thought that including a hodgepodge of my favorite everything’s would be a good idea. However, upon further reflection, I decided to do something near and dear to my heart: skincare and makeup.

I’ve been plagued with acne since my early teen years. As a result, I have always prioritized my skin care regime. Similarly, I care very much about the products I decided to use on my skin. Before purchasing a new product, I read the ingredient list, and, if I must, consult my dermatologist.

After years of picking through brands and trying out new things, I’ve landed on three brands I swear by: Cetaphil, Milk and Glossier. Together, these brands leave my skin happy and healthy. However, I know sometimes looking at a website full of products on your own can be overwhelming.

So, I am here to recommend my go-to’s. Whether you’ve tried these products and use them regularly, or you’ve never heard of any of the aforementioned, read below to see what I have to say. If you think I’ve missed something, comment below with what you use!
