Best of Skincare 2014


Another year has gone by, and with it another slew of new beauty tries and buys. As I sit here and reflect on my favorite products from the last year, I thought I would share them with you. Most of these are old favorites, but some are new, because here's the thing about skincare and me... when I find something I like, I stick with it. My skin is way too fussy to try all the new products that are sent to me for promotional purposes, so I rarely try something skincare related just because it was sent. Instead, all of these are products that I have genuinely sought out and loved to death. These are my dearest and most used products from 2014 and before. If I was going to be stuck on a deserted island, or say, stuck in Tennessee for 2-3 months without warning (thanks, back), these are the skincare products I would like to have with me. 

Cleanser: Eve Lom Cleanser. I had two really big cleanser loves this year, and they were the Eve Lom cleanser and the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish. The Liz Earle absolutely stole my heart for a good long while, and pulled me away from the Eve Lom with a huge tug, but in the end I went back to Eve Lom. Here's the thing. I actually like the application, texture, and the scent of the Liz Earle more, but after a few months of using it, it started to break me out. I went to Space N.K. and asked the girl her advice, and she recommended moving back to Eve Lom, so I did, and my skin cleared up. Now, this isn't to say that the Liz Earle isn't an amazing cleanser, it might be that my skin got used to it and that I need to alternate between the two. Currently, in TN, I am using Eve Lom, and I bought my mom her own jar, which she is loving. I have a dedicated review on the Eve Lom Cleanser here, and the Liz Earle Cleanser here

Toner: Cane & Austin Retexturizing Treatment Pads. These babies are incredible. I have other acidic toners, including Alpha-H's Liquid Gold and Pixi Glow Tonic, but I love the tingle and packaging of the Cane & Austin ones. They are easy to travel with because they are way less likely to spill as opposed to bottle toners, and BONUS, the top is reflective and doubles as a laser beam for Pinecone when the light bounces off of it. The brand makes a stronger version that the loveliest sales associate at Space N.K. gave me to try but I haven't yet because they are in LA and I am... well, in bed. In TN. With a broke-ass back. Literally. At $1 a pad, I would say these are on the pricier end but think of them as a chemical peel... much cheaper than getting a treatment at the spa. I love these pads so much that I have a dedicated review of them here.

Exfoliator: Pevonia Enzymo-Spherides Peeling Cream. This is another product that I have used for quite literally years, and I swear to you guys... every single time I use this I notice a difference. I have a makeup artist that I work with quite regularly, and he now requests that I use this the night before working with him, as he can notice a tremendous difference in my skin when I use it. The way it works is that it is an enzyme exfoliator, meaning it doesn't have little balls that rub your skin, instead, it has Pineapple and Papaya enzymes that slowly eat away at your dead skin cells, working to eliminate impurities and blackheads and giving you healthier skin overall. This stuff is gold. 

Serum: I have two serum loves, an old one and a new one. The old fav is the Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate, which I have a review on here. It's the most lovely overnight elixir with tons of good stuff to help hydrate your skin whilst you sleep. I love this so much that I bought my mom one for Christmas this year, and she loved it. She had tried it once before, a few summers back, and enjoyed it, but never took the plunge to buy one for herself, so I took it upon myself to do it for her, and her skin is looking mighty fine.

The new favorite is the SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Gel. I bought this after a lady used it on me during a facial, and I immediately loved the texture and look of it. The product is a bright green color which helps combat redness or sensitivity in your skin, which I rather love. It looks terrifying in the bottle but once it's on your skin it blends in perfectly. It's an ultra gentle formula that is oil-free and suitable for all skin types, especially acne-prone or sensitive. It's meant to make your skin clearer, brighter, and more radiant with regular use. I can do a full review of this if you guys would like!

I've been using both of these serums regularly, alternating days or using the Skinceuticals in the morning and the Kiehl's at night, and I can definitely say that I recommend both.

Moisturizer: This one is super easy, as I have been obsessed with my Pevonia Myoxy-Caviar Timeless Repair Cream for years. Literally, years. It was once used on me during a facial many moons ago, and I instantly fell in love with the scent, the texture, everything. *Sigh* This stuff is crazy expensive and sometimes I question repurchasing it for that reason alone but I always do. It's that good. 

Eye Cream: I have had quite a few favorites in this category this year, but the one that has stood out and the one that I just repurchased for myself is the Bobbi Brown Extra Eye Repair Cream. It's more expensive than her sister eye cream, the Hydrating Eye Cream, but I find it much richer and more moisturizing for my dry under eyes. If you want a lighter cream, the hydrating one is one I would definitely recommend, but for me, the Extra Eye Repair is my baby. I actually did an entire "rave review" on this eye cream a few years ago, so it has been a favorite for quite awhile. You can watch that review here - link!

Eye Makeup Remover: This is a category that I struggle with... I just have never found "the one" when it comes to eye makeup remover. It's so incredibly annoying, because I think that eye makeup remover is a really important product that can damage your lashes and your sensitive eye skin easily if it is too harsh, or if it doesn't work very well and you have to rub hard. I like this Chanel one and this Lancome one fairly well, but neither of them are "omg holy grail will never use another". I would LOVE recommendations for this category.

Face Mask: I am a huge face mask fan, and I have a favorite that stands out in a "omg I have to tell you about this because you need it" way. It is the Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask, which is a deeply moisturizing and cleansing mask. Manuka Honey is know for it's natural anti-microbial and hydrating properties, and on top of that this mask is said to bring balance to your Aura, meaning you are tending to both your skin and your spirit with this mask. I love that. This mask is a bit hard to find, as my usual source, Feel Unique, is sold out, but I did manage to find it here - link!  

Lip Treatment: Dior Creme de Rose. Hands down. Quite possibly my favorite product in the entire world. I've gone through quite a few of these babies and there is a NIGHTMARE-inducing rumor floating around that they have been discontinued, which might be the saddest and scariest thing I've ever heard. Go get you one, now, before they are gone. They are amaze-balls. *Stocks up on 10 before the apocalypse*

Extras: You know how everyone has that one thing that they spend money on that they think to themselves... should I really be splurging on this? Well, this is my product, but it is oh so good. My name is Elle Fowler, and I am addicted to eye patches. I have tried all sorts of them, and love them all, but if you really want to treat yourself try the Wei Tibetan Chrysanthemum Correcting Eye Treatment Pads (wow that's a mouthful). They are basically just a pair of eye pads soaked in pure herbal extract to help treat dark eye circles and puffiness, which let's be honest, I need. Plus, they just feel so soothing and refreshing... ahh I just love these.

Would you like me to do a post like this for favorite makeup and haircare? I think they are a nice reference point to quickly see my current favorites in a specific category, and to see which products stay long time favorites. 

P.S. I thought I would do a little giveaway to go with this post... 

P.P.S. I just updated the "beauty deals" section of this website... check it out if you have holiday money burning a hole in your pocket or you are coveting some new beauty goodies! Link!

  22. When you asked about recommendations, I was hoping you would write about this one :) I actually ended up picking up a dior lip balm since you rave about it all the time. The one I have is gone now and I haven't had a chance to pick one up yet but it really is good esp when you use it over night!

    (I heard that it was only discontinued in Europe but would be available in the States)

    I would love to read your other 2014 favorites!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I really like the Fresh Soy Condition Eye Makeup Remover that can be purchased at Sephora! It has a creamy texture and you just rub it all over your eyes and it (and your makeup) comes off when you go to wash your face like normal. I like it cause there is no unnecessary tugging since you're just lightly massaging it in. I think it works really well, however, I don't use waterproof mascara or anything super difficult to remove.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I would love a similar post on hair products! I think our hair types are pretty similar, so it would be really helpful!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'd love to know what you'd suggest to someone who is just starting to get interested in makeup! (And, yes, I'm 34)

    Also, sending you good heal thoughts.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I love me a good skin care post :-) Do you have any thoughts about the by Terry rose lip balm versus the Dior one?

    ReplyDelete
  66. You should try a cleansing oil for removing makeup. It's the only thing I've personally found that doesn't irritate my eyes. I'm using the Garnier one but I hear the body shop cleansing oil is amazing. i'll be trying that one next. If you really want to stick with the traditional kind of eye makeup remover used on a cotton pad, the Maybelline one that comes in a small pink bottle has been the most efficient, and least irritating for me so far. I like it better than the lancome.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I loved this post, it was super detailed which makes reading it so much more personal!

    As an interior design major, I would love to see any recent additions to your home decor or design (for when you get back to LA -- which I'm praying is sooner than later!)

    Much love :)

    ReplyDelete
  68. I'd love to see a post on both! I love learning about great new hair and makeup products!

  70. I would love if you could do like a blog post on how you maintain healthy hair. I have very dry hair and I have no idea how to fix it!
    Also, here's a bonus secret: I've always wanted a star named after me (but I never told anyone and I never found a guy as great as Alex to think of this- you're a lucky gal, Alex is so sweet!)

    ReplyDelete
  71. I would love to see a post on your favorite drugstore (or just less high end, like under $25) skincare products! Wishing you the speediest recovery, Elle!

    ReplyDelete
  72. I love watching yearly favorites, I guess since it really forces you to narrow things down to absolute favorites! I've been wanting to try the lip balm, I've heard many good things about it. I guess that's my secret :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. I'm using the Body Shop Chamomile Cleansing Oil to remove my eye and face makeup, and it's amazing! It doesn't sting my eyes and it is gentle enough to use. I use a pump of it for my whole face and it dissolves my makeup quickly. :)

    I hope they won't discontinue the Dior lipbalm because I have yet to try one! Boo!

    Btw, love this post, Elle! I'd love to know what your favorite makeup products from 2014 were. Xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  74. Great blog post, I like all the detail. I would like to see posts on your favorite brushes.

    Very nice post. I have only been consistent with my own skincare in the past 6 months or so and now getting to know what I like better than others.
    Prayers for your recovery!

  76. Id love to see a makeup post just like this one! It was different but really nice!

    ReplyDelete
  77. My "Resolution" is to live more in all aspects of life, so I am gonna have fun and do both.

    A blog post idea I would like to see, hmm... Making time for your skin care routine. I feel like I never have enough time and am falling asleep before I get to it. Or I don't get everything else done because I stopped to take care of my skin.

    My secret is I am 30 yrs old and never knew half of what I do now about skin care. I have learned a lot from watching videos and reading blog post from you and Blair. I would be lost without you both.

    I am happy you are feeling better. I am sure you will be back to 100% before you even know it.

    Loads of Love,
    XOXO

  110. Hi Elle,

    It is so good to see Dreaming in Blush up and running again, I have been missing your posts like crazy!! I am already sitting here contemplating what your next post will be and I cant wait - Im just a little excited, can't you tell lol!

    You have mentioned up above that you are lucky enough to work with a professional makeup artist on some occasions. As someone who is yet to experience the luxury **Ahhh one day, sighs* I was wondering if you could outline the tips and tricks that you have learned from professional makeup artists in a blog post. What is it like behind the scenes? Do you have a favorite MUA that you have worked with? How long does it typically take for a MUA to complete a full face? What are your pre and post makeup tips when working with a MUA? Have you had both positive and negative experiences? Are there any sneaky products that we should know about?

    As for what eye makeup remover I swear by? Im a fan of Clinique's Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes and Lips

    I wish you well with your recovery and all the best for 2015

    Helene :)

  123. Hey elle! So happy too see you blogging again after you're accident! I'd love to see something similar but for 'beauty of 2014' or even a blog post reviewing your top 3 nude/neutral eye shadow palettes :) I'm looking for some new ones! Or even more lifestyle related ( not like your other blog) like more fashion choices, how you style certain things etc xx

    ReplyDelete
  124. Love hearing about your faves!! Hope you're feeling better :)

  127. Isn't it just great when you find a skincare product that fits you perfectly? That's pretty much how I feel about my Purity cleanser by Philosphy and the Sheer Transformation moisturizer by Ole Henriksen. Although, that Eve Lom cleaner has been on my "up next" list since you first mentioned it way back when. Also, Pevonia products look enticing but I don't think they sell them in Sephora (?).

  128. I would love to see a post on organization tips or how do you organize your work day or work week :)
    Thx!!!

  135. Hey Elle!
    Loving the fact that you're back blogging again! Whenever you're feeling fit enough, I'd LOVE to see some personal style posts! But for now something like your go-to's for night-time / morning time skincare would be great! I'm trying my best this year to get into a consistent skincare routine!

    Wishing you a speedy recovery! Can't wait to read / watch more of you in 2015!

  137. I would like to see makeup and hair favourites too! Also, for a good makeup remover in general, especially stubborn eye make up remover - Body Shop Silky Camomile Cleansing oil. 1-2 pumps of this each evening before going in with skincare and OMG. EVERYTHING MELTS OFF so easily. i've only used it a few weeks and already got a backup because i CANNOT be without this. PS, i use the eve lim cleanser in the evening - HEAVENLY.
    Get Well Soon Elle X

  156. I love your blog Elle!! <3 hope you feel better soon! Have you tried the Kiehl's Super Multi-Corrective Eye-Opening Serum? It's awesome for the undereye area. I would love to try the Dior creme de rose but it's SO expensive :(

    ReplyDelete

  162. So glad to see you back! I love skin care posts, I like to nourish my skin and give it that little bit of extra attention so your suggestions will definitely be looked into!

    ReplyDelete
  163. I adore the Booby Brown eye cream!! I have tried every eye makeup remover out there and none have worked as well as coconut oil. I warm a bit between my fingers and massage it into my eyes. After letting it sit for a minute or so, I wipe away everything with a clean cotton pad. It very easily and gently removes at least 90% of my makeup every time. It's very inexpensive and it's fantastic for your skin!

    ReplyDelete
  164. I would love to read about your (all time) Holy Grail products. Makeup, Skincare, Bodycare, Haircare/Styling etc.

    ReplyDelete
  165. I would love to see an updated post, since you've done a video before, about how you use/organize your planner.

    ReplyDelete
