Today’s post features some of my recent skincare discoveries that I’ve been loving lately! From an ultra-lightweight yet super potent moisturizer and glow-inducing serum to an easy solution for super soft feet, here are a few skincare products that have secured a spot in my summer beauty routine.
Now let’s dive into why I love each one of these so much!
This has quickly become my absolute favorite lip balm/mask! Infused with the goodness of shea butter, jojoba oil and hyaluronic acid, it’s such a soothing and hydrating lip treatment. It has a creamy smooth texture with a subtle sweet scent that I love!
Pacifica Lavender Moon Lip Treatment feels like a luxe treat for lips but is affordable enough to buy several and put them in different bags. Perfect for dry lips anytime, day or night.
I have been using it daily at night before getting into bed and wake up with soft, hydrated lips. It’s ridiculously good (and addictive!) — give it a go! Not to mention, it’s seems to be a great dupe for Milk Makeup Melatonin Overnight Lip Mask ($22)
This stuff REALLY works! I’d always heard that Baby Foot was insane, but wow! Baby Foot is basically a chemical peel for your feet to remove calluses and dead skin. It’s infused with a high concentration of alpha-hydroxy acids (glycolic and lactic acid) combined with various botanical extracts.

The exfoliating treatment gel comes pre-filled inside a set of disposable plastic booties. You just slip the booties on, wear them for 1 hour (so the solution can penetrate deep into the skin) and then wash off your feet with water.
After the treatment, it takes about 3-4 days before the peeling starts. Initially, I thought it’s not going to work but then the magic happens! Once it begins, the dead skin literally starts to peel off in sheets…it’s gross but gets the job done. Typically, it takes about a week for your feet to finish peeling so you’ll see a lot of flakes during that time.
Totally disgusting but it’s all worth it, and the results are remarkable (and so satisfying!) Thanks to Baby Foot, my previously rough feet and cracked heels are now softer and smoother than they have been in years. And it’s only $25! Whether you just want to save some cash or your salon is still closed, this is a must-have for perfectly pedicured feet for sandal season. It’s easily available at Amazon and Ulta Beauty.
I had heard a lot about this super popular K-Beauty favorite from Peach & Lily and now that I’ve tried it out, I can say that it’s worth the hype! Designed to give you glowing glass skin, this serum comprises a cocktail of peach extract, Niacinamide, East Asian mountain yam, peptides and hyaluronic acid that work together to hydrate, calm, brighten and firm skin.
It’s like a ‘super juice’ for your skin that fights free radical damage and reduces inflammation while improving uneven skin tone & texture for a radiant complexion. Besides being loaded with an array of great ingredients, this serum also excels in the texture department.
With a silky and weightless gel texture that feels refreshing, it absorbs quickly leaving skin looking luminous and hydrated. The perfect pick-me-up for dull, tired skin! And being fragrance-free, it’s suitable even for sensitive skin types.
This new night cream by IT Cosmetics is all about rejuvenation with a dose of relaxation (thanks to its soothing lavender scent!) It’s formulated to visibly address the top signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, dryness, dullness and loss of firmness so your skin feels hydrated, smooth and supple.
Infused with skin-loving ceramides, hyaluronic acid, Persian silk tree bark extract and anti-inflammatory jojoba oil, it nurtures skin overnight and provides long-lasting hydration. It also improves surface cell renewal through exfoliation to revive worn-out skin.
I love the velvety rich, bouncy texture of this night cream that feels luxurious and how fast it absorbs into my skin without leaving a residue. There’s no heavy, greasy feel and the best part is that it doesn’t transfer on my pillow (or my sleep mask, for that matter!) Not to mention, the soft lavender scent works as sleep-friendly aromatherapy! Also available at Ulta Beauty.
Super lightweight yet powerful, this daily moisturizer packs a major punch with ingredient concentrations of a treatment mask! It’s supercharged with multiple peptides, 9 Antioxidants, 7 Brighteners and a 16.5% Repair Complex plus ceramides to combat inflammation, fade dark spots and reduce signs of premature aging.
It also boosts collagen production, brightens and repairs damaged skin while defending it against all forms of environmental stressors.
It has a silky, feather-light texture that makes it perfect for all skin types. I love how it’s so light but hydrates beautifully with a barely-there feel (just perfect for summer!) And it layers easily under sunscreen and makeup. This multi-tasker is a winner on all fronts!
So, these are some of my summer skincare favorites. What skincare products have you been loving lately? Let me know in the comments!
