My Updated Holy Grail Skincare

My Holy Grail Skincare favorites are the foundation on which I build my skincare routine. I love being able to constantly test and try new products, but I’ll always come back to my tried and true Holy Grail products!

They’re reliable, make my skin look and feel incredible, and they’re the products that I reach for and can always rely on.

The last time I shared my Holy Grail Skincare was way back in 2017- which feels like a million years ago! It has changed since then, but as I’ve gotten older and my skin has changed (especially with my second pregnancy, post-partum and, well, life…), I love that my skincare routine has evolved with me!

Being open to growing and evolving, trying new things, and ironing out the wrinkles along the way is something that I have to remind myself to do constantly- but when you do… amazing things happen!

So without further ado, here’s my Updated Holy Grail Skincare!

Shiseido Toner 

A lot of Shiseido makeup was on my list for Most Used Makeup of 2019 (check out my picks here!) and I love their skincare as well (especially this toner)! It’s great for anti-aging and acts as a balancing and softening toner/lotion. Another toner I use and love not pictured is this Cle De Peau Toner!

Clé De Peau Le Créme

This guy is expensive but worth every penny! You wake up to your skin feeling super soft, super hydrated and so bright! Basically an overnight facial. 

Elemis Pro-Collagen Eye Balm – Morning Cream

This eye balm has a wonderful cooling effect. It depuffs and feels slightly tingly and minty. It seriously wakes up your eyes- bye-bye under-eye bags! 

Elemis Cleansing Balm

You guys know how much I LOVE this cleansing balm! It’s hydrating, melts off even the most stubborn mascara and feels so luxe. I’ve gone through so many of these jars by now and there’s no stopping me!

Dr. Lancer Caviar Lime Acid Peel

With glycolic acid & retinol, this Dr. Lancer peel was a no brainer for me to include in my updated Holy Grail Skincare. I like to use it only once a week as it’s pretty strong. Acid peels are great for getting rid of dead skin cells and making your face feel and look brand new! (PS: ICYMI – Dr. Lancer answered some questions about Botox, check it out here!)

Clé De Peau Le Serum

This serum, much like the Le Creme I mentioned above, is worth every penny! It’s hydrating, smoothing and leaves my skin feeling amazing. 

Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream

This moisturizer is next level good and the entire team loves it too! It’s crazy hydrating, super nourishing (hello, vitamins and antioxidants) and makes your skin feel amazing.

IS Clinical Serum

I’ve been a huge fan of this serum for years now and in my opinion, there’s nothing quite like it. This is one of those products that you’ll see results immediately after using. It works especially well for reducing the appearance of acne and acne scars as well as any pigmentation.


This microcurrent device (if you want to learn more about the world of microcurrent click here!) is AMAZING! You’ve probably seen me use it on my Instagram Stories. It has different head attachments to help get rid of wrinkles, smooth, tone and more! Right now I’m loving the Wrinkle Reducer Attachment

Elemis Ultra Smart Pro-Collagen Complex Serum

This serum has been on my top shelf for a while now, so it’s not surprising it ended up on my Holy Grail Skincare round up! It’s jam-packed with hyaluronic acid and is great for targeting anti-aging. 

ROC Eye Cream 

I love to use this eye cream at night! The retinol it’s formulated with is amazing and is so affordable. It’s simple and effective- exactly what I love in a nighttime eye cream.

There you have it! My updated holy grail skincare favorites. These have been my MVP’s for months now- some of them over a year!
