That’s pretty much all we’ve got going on here today… a list of the skincare products I use.

I talk about skincare in this podcast episode if you want Lazy Genius thoughts on putting stuff on your face. Some of these are affiliate links, so if something looks promising and you happen to buy it, I might get a tiny cut as a thank you gift from the Internet.


Honey Mud from May Lindstrom
It’s a mask and a cleanser and super expensive, but nothing makes me skin feel and look better.

Acure Brightening Cleansing Gel
A great all-purpose cleanser, but I want to try others once it’s gone. The smell is dishsoapy.

Neutrogena Deep Clean Purifying Cooling Gel and Exfoliating Face Scrub
Great physical exfoliating cleanser and a great price point.

Cleansing Oil from Some Call Me Crunchy
My favorite oil cleanser.


Complexion Mist with Lavender and Rose from Some Call Me Crunchy

Trader Joe’s Rose Water Facial Toner

Serums and Acids and Such

The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12%
Basically Vitamin C in a bottle. I use it a few times a week.

The Ordinary Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%
Has taken away some of my redness. I use it daily.

The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution
Once a week. Works great.

Soothe Facial Serum from Some Call Me Crunchy
Mostly daily use.


Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Beautiful Day Cream
My favorite day cream. Their night cream made me break out though; such a bummer.


The Problem Solver from May Lindstrom
I will sell my belongings to continue buying this, along with Honey Mud. They’re literally magic.

Laurel Brighten Facial Mask
A great mask for redness. Not cheap but worth it to me.

Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial
I got this in an Allure Beauty Box and love it. Does what it says.
