Looking to upgrade your beauty regimen in 2020? I asked 10 of the best lifestyle bloggers in the DMV area to discuss their must have beauty products for today’s post so you’re in for a treat. They’re covering everything from brow oil to makeup removers so make sure you have a notepad handy.
This year I switched to all-natural skincare, and it’s been fantastic. My pores were sick and tired of all those chemicals! My go-to product is from Skincando, a local, woman-owned company that uses organic ingredients. Their Liquid Silver lotion is moisturizing but not greasy and has an SPF 15 – perfect for everyday use.
One product I can’t live without is The Face Shop, Pomegranate & Collagen Volume Lifting Cream. Whenever my skin feels dry, I just dab this cream all over my face and the next day, I wake up with plump, moisturized skin. And collagen is a MUST for anti-aging! 😉
The Clean it Zero Balm by Banila Co is a product that I live and die by. It’s really magic! I’ve been searching for a makeup remover that works and this is it! A little goes a long way and the makeup just melts off your skin like volià.
Not only does it thoroughly clean your skin but also adds hydration. The Balm is the perfect step 1 of my 2 step beauty routine! It also naturally exfoliates and brightens skin with vitamin-C rich acerola extract and it’s safe for all skin types.
I found this product on Soko Glam about a year ago and if you aren’t on the Kbeauty trend you are missing out! I purchased the jumbo-size version for $27 and I am certain I won’t be restocking this item for quite some time. If you decide to gift someone this product they also sell a small size for about $19 and believe me when I say they will thank you for blessing them with this gift!
My brows were getting so dry in the winter! I had never brought it up to anyone, until I became very good friends with my eyebrow “Doctor” Natallia Ivchankova at Global Brow Bar. When I asked her about my concern, she didn’t act like it was weird at all! She also said she had just the product for me. Brow oil. I had never heard of it, but let me tell you- it’s wonderful. Oils are awesome because they last longer than creams, and take longer to seep into my skin. This creates more of a lasting effect! Since it’s not something talked about much- I wanted to share this very useful and helpful product as one of my “must haves”.
My go-to product is Amorepacific color control cushion compact. Its a very light day cream with SPF built-in. I use it everyday since it provides a slight smoothing of skin while also providing SPF protection. I’m notoriously bad at remembering to apply SPF so I always look for products with it already added so it doesn’t require another step in my daily routine.
There are plenty of products in my skincare regimen but the most important to me is my Good Molecule Silcon-Free Priming Moisturizer. I can’t live without this product because it hydrates my combination skin without feeling heavy or oily, giving my skin a smooth and feet finish. I use it both in the morning and night with a combination of other Good Molecule products.
This on-trend elixir, starring organic CBD bio-active and hemp oil, is packed with a medley of earthy ingredients (peach, apricot, lavender, and spearmint, to name a few) to swiftly delete the day’s makeup. When I wake up (after some interesting and possibly CBD-induced dreams!), my skin is feeling plumped up, rehydrated, and ready to tackle a stressful day. I’ve been using this cleansing oil for now an entire year and it’s the reason why my skin has kept a healthy glow! I highly recommend it. It also smells divine!
Fragrance is such a huge part of my beauty regimen and I consider perfume my favorite beauty item. After applying just a few spritzes of my favorite perfume finishes my morning routine and sets the mood for the entire day.

Currently, my favorite fragrance is Diamonds by KKW Fragrance. Diamonds is a collection of three fragrances by the Kardashian sisters (Kim, Khloe and Kourtney). I especially love the one by Kim. It’s a very light, not over powering, clean and warm white floral scent with a subtle hint of sweetness thanks to coconut milk cream finish.
It’s perfect for daily wear and light enough to spritz on before work, brunch dates or even before hitting the gym. It’s such a beautiful and luxurious fragrance that makes me feel very feminine. This is a fragrance that seems appropriate for all seasons because of the fresh floral opening notes. I’m especially excited to wear it this holiday season for wear from morning all the way into the night.
Firming and sculpting creme for the face and neck has become one of my daily must haves, especially during the colder months of the year when my skin gets really dry. It not only moisturizes it also firms the skin and wards off fine lines and wrinkles, not to mention it smells amazing as well as leaving my skin super soft.
I honestly couldn’t live without it, and I make sure to put it on every evening after I cleanse my face to remove all the junk from that day. That way I wake up the next morning with a face ready to take on the day. I 100% recommend it to everyone no matter what skin type you have, especially if you want to fend off aging.
As a makeup artist and beauty YouTuber, I am constantly discovering and testing out new products and trends. And lately, I’ve been obsessed with clean beauty! There is one skincare product that really blew me away and that is the [Vine]active Overnight Detox Oil by Caudalie. This face oil is perfect for all skin types (yes, even oily skin) and it detoxifies and purifies your skin while you sleep. I wake up with my skin feeling baby-smooth and makeup-ready. If you’re looking to give your skin a little T.L.C., I highly recommend you give this one a try.
A huge thanks to all my blogger friends for participating in today’s roundup! I’ve linked their sites/instagram accounts above so definitely make sure to give them a follow. I loved reading about their essentials, especially since I was unfamiliar with a lot of the products they mentioned. I’m excited to try them out though.
My favorite beauty product’s a moisturizing face cream because I have really dry skin. It’s no secret that I’m team Olay when it comes to hydration – and you honestly can’t go wrong with their Regenerist Micro-Sculpting face cream – but lately I’ve been loving Sooryehan’s True-Rejuvenating Yoon Cream. A close second is L’oreal’s Derm Intensives Vitamin C Facial Treatment – it smells like heaven, and I like layering it on top of my cream for an extra pick-me-up.
