I am a firm believer in great skincare. As a person with pale skin who easily burns, I stayed out of the sun. Vitamin D from the sun is good for you. Too much sun is terrible for you. I prefer to take a vitamin supplement and use sunscreen over burning.
Today I want to share with you the skincare lines that are currently in my own personal routine. They are all spectacular! I just thought it would be fun to give out “awards” for each line, based on what I love most about each one.
Please Pin Me!
Before I give out the “awards”, I want to address the top 5 skin damaging elements.
1. Wind – It need not necessarily be cold. The wind in and of itself can cause damage to your skin.
2. Cold – When it is cold your skin dries out.
3. Heat – It’s true! Heat dries out the skin as much as cold, if not more. Sweating drains our bodies of moisture.
4. Pollution – We can’t control this personally, but a barrier on our skin can help.
5. Everyday sunlight – We need not be bathing beauties for negative sun effects. Everyday sun can harm our skin too.
Protecting your skin from the above is not terribly difficult. In fact, it is fun to use a daily skin care regimen. Taking good care of my skin daily gives me that sense of “me time”. Granted some days I spend less time than others. Some days I set aside more time to enjoy a thorough spa treatment. Other days, I just do the basics.
Every day, everyone should at the very least cleanse their face, and use a moisturizer.
With that said, it is now time to hand out some awards! I am so excited!
The first award goes to the brand that I think is the most fun. This is a line that has introduced me to things I did not know existed in the skincare world. Until recent, I did not even know about them, but I am certainly happy that I know of them now!
The Most Fun Skincare Line award goes to …
Nip + Fab
!! Congratulations Nip + Fab! You win this award because you offer interesting and unique items. Your Bust Fix is outstanding and makes my decollete area plump. It also smells delicious! I am a huge fan of your skin “shots”. They last forever and are priced exceptionally well. I am also in love with the fact that you use so many unique and rare ingredients. From Dragon’s Blood to Blue Daisy I love the way your products make me smell.
For working great, doing what they say they will do, and being unique your skincare line wins MOST FUN!
Next up we have an award for the Most Wholesome Skincare Line. This is a line that I have used for a long time. This brand is very pure, using ingredients that are wonderful for all skin types. Especially good if you have eczema, rosacea, or psoriasis.

! Congratulations Derma e for being my favorite body wash with your clean fresh aroma. There is never any sticky residue, and it leaves skin feeling conditioned. My husband loves it too. I truly appreciate your Psorzema Creme and would not live without both in my skincare regime! When my psoriasis starts to flare up, I just apply a tiny amount of your specialized cream and I instantly feel better! Not to leave the facial skin care products out, your entire line is perfection and sold at an affordable price.
For being pure, cruelty-free, affordable, and working wonders for my skin your skincare line wins MOST WHOLESOME.
Next, I want to shine the spotlight on what I consider to be the Most Luxurious Skincare Line. This is a line of skincare that I reach for when I want to spend a little more “me time” and truly feel that spa treatment pampering.
The Most Luxurious Skincare Line award goes to …
! Congratulations Colleen Rothschild for making me feel like I am at a super expensive spa when I am simply in my Turkish robe at home in my living room. Your Radiant Cleansing Balm feels like it costs a million dollars and leaves my skin baby butt soft! I love that it thoroughly removes makeup and leaves my skin looking luminous. The aroma of your products truly is something I have only smelled in expensive spas, until you! I also love using your muslin cleansing cloth, draping it over my face after it is soaked in warm water. Ahhh sooo soothing!
For making my skin feel like a million bucks, and for not costing a million bucks, you win the MOST LUXURIOUS award.
Last, a very special line that I feel is the Most Noticeably Effective. This line fights my fine lines and even more deeply set wrinkles. Firming, tightening, and anti-aging this line uses Microalgae. Microalgae is one of the oldest and most nutrient rich algae in the world. Interesting isn’t it? The oldest algae in the world can make us look younger!

! Congratulations Algenist for eradicating my fine lines, and wrinkles. Thank you for making me look, and thus feel many years younger. Your POWER Recharging Pressed Night Serum truly is one of a kind. Not only does it fight the aging process while I sleep, but I wake with the smoothest skin texture. Your complimenting eye serum is the perfect compliment for my tired eyes. I can not go without mentioning your GENIUS Ulitmate Anti-Aging Cream. My skin cream of choice! My face has the elasticity of a rubber ball due to using this regularly! The fact that it smells like coconut water is a bonus. I adore you Algenist!
For giving me youthful, bouncy, moisturized, smooth skin. For making me look and feel in my early 30’s when I am darn near 50, Algenist, you win, MOST NOTICEABLY EFFECTIVE award.
So there we have it! The awards have been handed out and it’s time for the after party!
ALL of the above brands are cruelty-free and use wholesome ingredients. All are brands I have and would purchase again.
