SOME OF LAURA'S SKINCARE FAVORITES

I know many of you are curious about what products I use outside of Henné. While the list is pretty long, today I'm going to share some favorites that are in heavy rotation in my current skincare routines.

Note: This is not a sponsored post in any way. I truly adore these products and want to share the love of some of my fellow indie brands with our Henné community.


FACE BALM: MAY LINDSTROM BLUE COCOON

Blue Cocoon is one of my all-time favorite skincare products. The balm quickly melts on contact and applies onto the skin like an oil. Not only does my skin love it, but I seriously cannot get enough of the scent. I usually apply Blue Cocoon to my face, neck and chest after I shower. I even apply some on my hands so I can smell them in bed. Yes, that's how devoted I am to Blue Cocoon.

TONER: RANAVAT JASMINE TONIQUE

I love that this product is multi-purpose. You can use it as a toner or as a face mist. I started off using it as a toner (with a cotton pad) but lately I've been using it more as a face mist to keep my skin hydrated. If you're a fan of jasmine, you will absolutely fall head over heels for this product.

FACE MIST: MAYA CHIA THE OPTIMIST

Is it possible to be obsessed with a spray head? I think so! I know I should be talking about all the benefits of this face mist (and there are plenty), but I can't get over how amazing the spray head is. It's so gentle and each time I spray, it feels like the mist is gently kissing my face. The Optimist is truly an at-home spa experience in a bottle.

FACE OIL: AGENT NATEUR HOLI OIL

There are very few products on the market that give my skin the youthful glow that Holi Oil does. I use it as a highlighter during the day, and I slather it on before bed at night. I can't tell you how many compliments I've received from strangers when I wear Holi Oil during the day. It makes my skin look like I added an Instagram filter to my face in real life. Like all of founder/CEO Jena's products, the scent is simply marvelous.

CBD SKINCARE: SAINT JANE LUXURY BEAUTY SERUM

I've tried a lot of CBD skincare products and to be honest, not many have impressed me. One of the main reasons is that I don't like how most of them smell (too pungent). Saint Jane is the exception. This beauty serum is not too oily, not too dry, and the scent is mild and actually very pleasant. I like to apply this to my skin (especially on my chest) on days when I'm feeling a bit tense. And can we talk about the next-level packaging? The gold tone plate on the matte black bottle is seriously sexy and outshines some of my most expensive perfume bottles.

FACE MASK: Tata Harper CLARIFYING MASK

I have combination skin (hello T-zone), which is why Tata's face mask is perfect for my face. It's also got tiny grains that act as a very gentle exfoliator when you rinse off the mask. I use it about 2-3 times a week. An added bonus is that my husband thinks it's a fun color, so he lets me put it on his face, but he always starts with wanting me to put a few stripes on his cheeks like war paint, and then we both usually end up making silly faces in the mirror. Very mature, I know ;)

CLEANSER: LIVING NATURE PURIFYING CLEANSER

I've been using the Purifying Cleanser regularly ever since I discovered it at a pharmacy in Auckland. The cleanser works so well on my skin. It feels like a deep clean every time I wash my face with it, and my skin doesn't feel too tight or dry afterwards.
