My mom got me into skincare at a really young age and always stressed how important it was. My skin is very dry and always has been. Over the last few years, it's also gotten quite sensitive - and unfortunately, I haven't been able to get to the bottom of what is causing my sensitivity. Luckily I've never been one to have bad breakouts - I might get one or two hormonal ones around my period, but that's pretty much it.
NINA'S MUST HAVES
Obsessed with this moisture cream, my skin soaks it up while I soak up the incredible smell - it reminds me of Banana Laffy Taffy. I love the way it layers under makeup, and it feels so soothing on my skin.
I've never been "married" to an eye cream before, but I must say I am loving the results I am seeing with this one - it is incredibly moisturizing for my dry under eyes, the texture is beautifully rich without feeling too heavy on that delicate skin.
A cleansing balm is a must-have in my routine because I always use them to remove my makeup before going in with a gel cleanser, but I also use them solo in the morning to give my skin an extra boost of moisture. The texture of this is soft and soothing, and melts into the skin seamlessly. I always take extra time to massage this into my skin morning or night, and it really makes me feel like I'm at the spa - for a minute or two.
