What I am Using

I update this list when something in my skin care routine changes.

CLEANSER

Pleni Naturals Enzyme Cleaning Oil – Unscented so it’s perfect for sensitive skin or noses. SPF and makeup do not stand a chance; doubles as an enzymatic face mask! Code MOIRA20 saves you 20% off too. Detailed review here.

Osmia Purely Gentle Mud Cleanser – Awesome for removing SPF and makeup. Feels like a double cleanse for my drier skin so I only do this 1-2 times a week.

Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser – When my skin does not feel dry I use this everyday, especially for my morning cleanser. Detailed review here.

Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser – I use this once or twice a week to exfoliate quickly. It smells great and even my boyfriend likes it!

TONER

Indie Lee COQ-10 Toner – Amazing how much cleanser can be left on our skin post cleansing. This toner does not mess around and it’s ok if you spray it near your eye, won’t sting! Though Indie recommends removing with a reusable square over the spray which is what I do.

Josh Rosebrook Daily Acid Toner – Helps collagen re-develop. This helped removed texture on my cheeks and give a more even complexion. Detailed review here.

ESSENCE

Maya Chia The Optimist – If you love the smell of jasmine and a fine mist this is for you. SO good. Detailed review here.

Josh Rosebrook Hydrating Accelerator – Mega hydrating and not expensive. Packaged in 50% ocean plastic and 50% post-consumer plastic! One of the few non-glass packaged products I like enough to purchase.

SERUM

Josh Rosebrook Hydration Boost Concentrate – On my fourth bottle. If you’re looking for hydration and plump skin this is IT for $35! Detailed review here.

Free + True Bright Side – My favorite Vitamin C serum. CA grown botanical based ingredients and Black Owned as well.

OSEA Hyaluronic Sea Serum – Another Hyaluronic Acid serum with algae. It is a gel texture compared to Josh’s more watery texture. OSEA’s is also not sticky and the packaging is stunning!

Osmia Balance Serum – Incredible essential oil scent for combination and oil-prone skin. Also great if you have a breakout. I adore this serum!

EYE CREAM

Rootanicals Nourishing Eye Repair Balm – Eyes, highlighter, lips, cuticles and your whole face benefit from this nourishing balm!

Tata Harper Restorative Eye Cream – Recently repurchased. First bottle lasted me 10 months, though in just 4 days I noticed softened wrinkles around my eyes. Worth every penny for me! Detailed review here.

FACIAL OIL

Daily Vitamin Infusion – Vitamins A, C and E. Plus Squalane, Ceramides, Avacado and Rosehip Oil. It’s a daily vitamin for your face!

Pleni Naturals Day Squad – My go-to Vitamin C Facial Oil! Smells like spring and fresh vegetables; gives an incredible glow. MOIRA20 saves you 20%

Maya Chia The Straight A – I use this product with retinol at night to combat fine lines. The facial oil is mega hydrating and smells delish!

Rootanicals Calming P.M. Repair Oil – USDA Organic certified meaning over 95% of the ingredients are organic. Smells like pure organic plum oil!

Indie Lee Squalane Facial Oil – 100% Squalane oil, great value for this price. I love to Gua Sha with this.

Le Prunier Plum Beauty Oil – 100% Organic Plum Oil. A favorite oil if you want glowing, dewy skin. Also helps combat acne. Detailed review here.

MOISTURIZER

Josh Rosebrook Vital Balm – A solid oil that melts on your skin. Has blue tansy so it’s great for calming inflamed skin and acne. I love the scent and this seems to be the product to revert my dry skin to combination.

Maya Chia’s Pressed Serum – A vitamin C serum and a balm. I’ve been using this non-stop twice a day since January, and am less than 1/3 of the way through the glass jar!

Ursa Major Golden Hour Recovery Cream – If you love a thick, creamy moisturizer and the scent of lemongrass this is for you. I wore this twice a day for over 8 months and my skin was sooo happy!

SUNSCREEN

Honua MALU SPF – Non-tinted SPF. My #1 sunscreen recommendation that is creamy, no-white cast and does not pill.

Josh Rosebrook Tinted Nutrient Day Moisturising Cream SPF 30 – Fancy sunscreen with lots of skin benefits

Babo Botanicals Tinted SPF 30 – Love how I do not need makeup and feel protected from the wind and rain.

Meow Meow Tweet Refillable Everyday Sunscreen – This comes in an aluminum bottle that can be refilled or recycled indefinitely! Great beach sunscreen!

FACE MASKS

Jose Rosebrook Active Enzyme Exfoliator – I wear this for 45-60 minutes as a mask and your skin will GLOW after removing all the dead skin cells

Follain Ultra Hydrating Mask: Restore + Soften – I love how light this feels and it’s so hydrating! Gives you a glossy finish!

Osmia Detox Mask – Very similar to May Lindstrom’s The Problem Solver mask, though less expensive and only needs 5-10 minutes to achieve the same results which I prefer more these days. Great, small ingredient list too!

SPOT TREATMENT

Indie Lee Banish Solution – So effective!

NATURAL DEODORANT

Live Like You Green It Grapefruit Geranium Baking Soda Free – Dani rocks and in 90 degree weather this holds up! Black-owned, vegan, 99% organic ingredients and zero waste brand.
