I never thought I’d be the person to admit this but having to admit to brands and any survey that I’m now in the 30-34-age bracket, has really been throwing me for a loop. Thirty always seemed SO far away to me but having lived it for 6 months now, I’m finally coming to terms with it. 

Another fact of life that comes hand in hand with turning 30? My lackadaisical skincare regime was not going to cut it for another decade. Sure, I had known this for a while now but really getting my routine down pat and knowing what does and doesn’t work for my sin has been crucial. Some background: I give myself no more than 5 minutes to spend on skin care a day AND it has to travel easily for me to keep up with it. 

This is my go-to list of products for an ideal morning before work or before bed. Sure, I’m the first to admit it doesn’t necessarily look like this everyday but I’ll get to which product I’m willing to sacrifice on for time. Thankfully, all of my go-to skincare favs are available from Sephora and I’m so pumped to give you a sneak peek at my personal picks. 

I’ve tried a ton of masks and always get the ‘so-what’ feeling after I’ve waited out the prescribed time to see the full effects. I actually find some even tend to dry my skin out (I’m combination skin for those asking). 

This Fresh Rose Face Mask is the mask I will go out of my way to replenish. Sure, it smells great but it also works to hydrate and tone your skin. I’m all for multi-purposeful products. I’ll throw this on for a few minutes while putting on my PJ’s and get ready for bed. Then you rinse off and pat dry.

Next on my list is the Clinique Pep-Start Hydroblur Moisturizer. I’ve always loved the Clinique brand. They’re a safe bet and my go-to if my skin has been acting out of sorts from changes in weather. The texture of this cream is different than most but I do find it lasts all day and is a great under makeup. Following my moisturizer, I’m relentless when it comes to eye cream. The Philosophy Take A Deep Breath Eye Cream is amazing. A little goes a long way with this stuff and the cooling sensation is perfect after a post-girls-night-out with rose kind morning ;)

The next two products I’ll switch out depending on the season. In cooler months, I’ll use this Marc Jacobs Primer to set my makeup. The coconut scent is my fav and it aborbs super quick for us gals who are always short on time! As we ease into spring and my skin has more hydration, I’ll opt to skip the primer and will use the Caudalie Beauty Elixir. The scent is insane and it’s the perfect spray of moisture to set your face before – or after – your makeup.

While this is my current lineup of favourites, I’d love to hear if there’s other products you’re currently loving. Leave a comment below and let me know what other skincare products you’re loving from Sephora!

  1. Lovely post dear! ;)


  2. Love the review on this skin care products! I recently tested out some Estee Lauder anti aging products and just love them! I've been in the 30-34 category for a few years and with every survey it STILL gets me! :D xx Rox-Anne Celebrating This Life

  3. I really need to check out these products I'm in the same age bracket actually almost out of it . . . HOW DID THIS HAPPEN! But the products all sound so good esp the rose mask


  4. Love these tips Krystin! I've been meaning to update my routine so you definitely gave me the extra motivation with this review!

  5. How long does the Philosophy eye cream last? I've been on the hunt for a good one, but $52 is steep. I want to make sure I can stretch it out for awhile!

    1. Hey Annie! I find I get about 2-2 1/2 months out of the cream and that's using it at least 1x a day. I try to use it very sparingly where possible ;)

  6. Skin is the most delicate and the most amazing element to look beautiful and to keep this element young and glowing, it's proper care is really very esssential. So, i must suggest to use the dermology anti aging solution as it keep the skin young by reducing the aging process and cures it's key causes.

  7. Greasy oil and dead skin cells make pore-clogged for which toxins can’t go out from our skin and that particular areas, as a result, become the perfect breeding ground for bacterial infection and acne blemishes.
