top 5: 2020 holy grail skincare.

In no particular order, my top five holy grail skincare products of 2020 are:

  1. THE FACE SHOP Jeju Aloe Fresh Soothing Gel
  2. COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence
  3. COSRX AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid
  4. MISSHA Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Cream
  5. Burt’s Bees Moisturizing Lip Balm

As somebody who has suffered from years of eczema and terrible acne, some of these products have truly been life changing.

  1. THE FACE SHOP Jeju Aloe Fresh Soothing Gel

I have been using the aloe vera gel from The Face Shop for just about a year and a half now. It claims to use 99% aloe vera in its product. Whether or not that is true, I cannot say, but I used to get extremely red patches on my face from who even knows what. It just happened. Even when I had outgrown the eczema and acne on my face, it just happened. Though I’ve seen many dermatologists over nearly 20 years for eczema, I never managed to find a solution for the aftermath: my blushing, hot red tomato face. The Face Shop’s aloe vera gel is the single product that has managed to calm any irritation and inflammation. This is a product that I will likely be using for the rest of my life.

2. COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence

Cosrx also makes wonderful skincare products! The two that I use are the snail and whitehead essences. The snail essence is gooey when applied and leaves my face shiny no matter how much powder I apply, so I use it during my night routine, but it is so moisturizing and does wonders for my skin.

3. COSRX AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid

The game changer, though, is the whitehead product, which supposedly exfoliates the skin by melting away dead skin cells. I didn’t believe this when I read the reviews, but it had so many amazing reviews from so many different people that I had to give it a try. I was skeptical when I tried it. I didn’t notice much difference at first, to be honest, but given a couple more days, my skin was so much softer and smoother. I don’t believe it’s actually meant for daily use, but my skin needs it daily. Too much of this product may cause irritation, but that just means using it less often. It’s not expensive, and if I had to pick one out of all of the products listed here, I would choose this essence.

4. MISSHA Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Cream

The snail renew cream is a little more on the pricey end. It comes in quite a pleasing jar and it is extremely light and has a rather faint, sweet scent. I love this cream for daytime use as my skin is very oily. I can use a little bit more when needed, but just enough on those extra oily days. I haven’t been able to tell a difference in the texture of my skin, but it is a decent daily moisturizer.

5. Burt’s Bees Moisturizing Lip Balm

And of course, Burt’s Bees has some of the best lip balms out there.

I get super dry and chapped lips year round. Burt’s Bees has kept this from happening all year. I don’t have much to say about this product. It’s great. I’ve tested it and I will vouch for it. It comes in different flavours and different colours, for those who enjoy a slightly tinted balm or want something a little bit fun. It’s 100% natural, and although it is not a vegan product, they do not test on animals.

2020 has been a hectic year, but that doesn’t mean your skin needs to suffer as well!
