Best of 2015: Skincare

-Peter Thomas Roth Mask-A-Holic Kit ($75) - 5 face masks including: cucumber gel mask, rose stem cell mask, 24K gold mask, irish moor mud mask and my personal favorite, pumpkin enzyme mask. Valued at $206, this is a steal.

-One Love Organics Vitamin C Brightening Facial Serum ($75) - I love this silky oil to brighten my skin. Vitamin C is great for repairing sun damage and evening out the skin. I also like this because it's organic.

-Uslu Airlines BIO Nail Polish Remover ($24) - I will never go back to using stinky acetone on my nails. This is my favorite polish remover ever. I wrote about it here.

-Sunday Riley Good Genes Treatment ($105) - The lactic acid makes my skin brighter and clearer. I can tell the difference if I forget to use it.

-Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser ($38) - Smells like a creamsicle. It's all natural and free of soap, alcohol and detergents. This deep cleans quite well. If I wear a full face of makeup I will wash with this first and go over again with a cotton pad soaked in micellar water, and I don't get any leftover makeup on the pad.

-Mizon Hyaluronic Acid 100 ($42) - Now that it's cold out, this has come in extra handy. After I cleanse my skin,  I pat two to three drops of this on my face and neck before serum and moisturizer or oil. I like it because it's lightweight and it does a great job of smoothing and plumping.

-Sunday Riley Artemis Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil ($75) - I use this over Good Genes and it brightens, reduces redness, and balances out my combination skin.

-Tatcha Pore Perfecting Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 35* ($68) - This is my new holy grail sunscreen. It's pricey, but I've never seen anything perform quite as well. I have combination skin with a pretty oily T-zone, and this smooths over the larger pores on my nose and doesn't get greasy throughout the day. The invisible, lightweight formula is perfect for using under makeup. It does not contain mineral oil, aminobenzoic acid, homosalate, oxybenzone or octinoxate.

-L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream ($12) - As a court reporter, I have to have a hand cream that absorbs quickly and isn't greasy at all or else my fingers will slide all over the place. L'Occitane makes my favorite ones, and they come in a variety of scents (my favorites are rose and almond).

-Clean & Clear Advantage Acne Spot Treatment ($7) - For blemishes or big pimples, I use this at night and by morning, my skin is clear.

-O.R.G. Skincare Mineral Peel Face with Brightening Agents ($44) - If I had to choose one thing that was my favorite of this year, it would be this. It's an all-natural enzyme exfoliant that removes dead skin. It's gentle enough to use every day. I also really like the Mineral Body Peel. There are few things as satisfying as sloughing all that dead skin off.

-Revival Body Care Grapefruit + Peppermint Natural Body Scrub ($19.95) - Revival body scrubs have quickly become favorites. There are under natural 5 ingredients in each scrub. The small amount of coconut oil leaves your skin super soft.

-Caudalie Divine Oil ($32) - I love to spray this dry oil on my slightly damp skin after a shower or bath. It absorbs quickly, allowing you to dress immediately. It can be used on the face and hair but I only use it on my body.
