1. The Face Shop "The Solution" Sheet Masks ($3 each at thefaceshop.ca)
Hands down, the best sheet mask I have ever tried- ever. Its so thin but super saturated with their serums formulated to whatever your skin concern is. I usually leave in for 10 mins and massage the leftover serum into my skin and use it 2-3 times a week no more than that! My skin always look radiant and plumped.
TIP: I love using scrubs before I use sheet masks, I feel like it penetrates better into my skin when I make sure all the dry patches are off of my face
2. Human Nature Rosedew Mist ($12.99 at humanheartnature.ca)
There were so many products I tried from Human Nature and I loved every single one of them but if I had to pick one this mist is my favourite from them this year. Not only this scent reminds me of my childhood but its also amazing for makeup prep. I spray this on before I start my makeup, after my skincare and it helps me wake up and I find my skin just takes the primer in and foundation whenever I use this and another product I'll mention later on this post.

3. La Roche Posay Toleriane Ultra Eye Contour ($32 at beautyboutique.ca)
This has saved my lashline and eye area so many times! For some reason my eye area was extra sensitive last year, I think it was also because I tried a lot of new eye products this year (eye cream, fake lashes, new liners, etc) and when things would go south, I would put this on and it would calm everything down for me in an instant. Its so gentle on the skin that I can even use this on my lashline and it would be fine. I would get no reaction, no tears, nothing. Hero product of the year for sure!
TIP: since this does not offer anti aging properties in it, I usually like to layer! I would put this on first around my eye area (including lashline) and whatever's left on my ring finger I would tap that underneath my eye as well then I would take an anti aging eye cream and concentrate that just underneath the eyes.
4. The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 ($6.80 at theordinary.com)
At first I didn't think I liked it, it felt a little sticky and was hard to blend into the skin. But then I figured that maybe I was using too little. I find that using a nickle size amount is where its at! I knew this was doing amazing things to my skin when I went away for a couple of days and forgot to pack this and I wasn't using it and my skin just looked dull and lifeless. I then figure out what was missing in my routine and this was it! Such an affordable line with amazing results.
5. Vichy Mineral 89 Skin Booster ($39.95 at beautyboutique.ca)
I never usually go for Vichy products, to be honest a lot of them break me out but I was willing to give this a go. When they said this product is made up of 89% Mineralized Thermal Water formulated without parabens, sulfates, alcohol and fragrances I was like "Ohh, she has potential" and then the texture. GIIIIIRL. Let me tell you, the texture was divine! I can't skip this step anymore. I use it as my pre serum morning and night, no breakouts, just re-plumping my skin and amazing hydration.
6. Guerlain Exceptional Complete Care ($510 at beautyboutique.ca) - product not pictured.
I know, I know its crazy, a $500 cream. Never in my life would I imagine to say this but its pretty darn worth it. The only reason why I never re purchased it (yet) is the price. I was tempted to buy this for myself for my birthday, that's how intense it is. I was graciously given this as gratis when I did some training with them and I also got some deluxe samples here and there so I was stocked for a little bit and I told myself that I would only re purchase this when I finished all my backup moisturizer. But during the time I was using this my skin was at its best that's why it hurts so much LOL my skin was flawless, and I mean FLAWLESS one day I'll be able to justify repurchasing this.
