Emma Watson once said that skincare is more important than makeup and I 100% believe that. My skin has had its trough patches. Battling cystic acne as a kid was hard and naturally a huge blow to the self esteem. Over the years my skincare routine has changed so many times and I have tired everything under the sun. One thing I had never tired was brands that promoted products that used more organic and natural ingredients. Recently I decided to finally take the plunge and test a few things out. I have been loving the results and found some brands that I love.

One skincare brand I recommend everyone check out is Antipodes. It is a science based company that has invested years of research into products that are selected of the purest ingredients. I have been loving The Aura Manuka Honey Mask, Grace Gentle Cream Cleanser, and The Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream.

Another brand that has quickly made its way into every aspect of my routine is Pai. This is a brand that understands sensitive skin. Sarah Brown the founder made a brand that is effective and organic. Its really an amazing brand and I have become obsessed with her Rosehip Bioregenerate oil, Kuki & Jojoba Bead Skin Brightening Exfoliator, and Copaiba Deep Cleanse AHA Mask.

I cannot forget Indie Lee, a brand that uses the finest all-natural ingredients from around the world,  a line designed to enhance your natural skin. I have yet to try a product from the brand that I did not love. Currently I am obsessing over The Rosehip Cleanser, COQ-10 Toner, and The Blemish Lotion.

Finally, but certainly not last is MV Organic. This is the brand that started my search into healthy skincare. This brand is used by many celebrities and bloggers such as Estee Lalonde and Anna from The Anna Edit. The brand is all about great ingredients making amazing products. They believe in a skincare ritual that will help you unwind and relax. Now that’s a statement I can get behind. I started out trying The Gentle Cream Cleanser, Pure Jojoba Oil,  and The Rose Hydrating Mist. The addiction to this brand is becoming a serious problem for me haha.

Let me know what your favorite happy skincare brands are! Please remember I am not a skincare expert and these opinions are my own.



  1. My happy skincare brand is KIEHLS!! Just their gentle, basic cleanser and moisturizer took away my adult acne better than any acne specific product ever could. These products you featured look so great, and I’ve never heard of them before! I love discovering new skincare products!

  2. Same here girl! Tried everything! Now I pretty much only use REN’s products for sensitive skin, which seems to be working well. I also add bio oil to my routine due to superdry and sensitive skin. Glad you found something that works for you 🙂 It takes such a long time but once you found something that works you just have to stick with it.

  3. Two of my most favourite brands in one post! I have tried the Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask which I absolutely loved and I’m currently using the Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream which is the best facial moisturiser I have ever used! But I am yet to try the Grace Gentle Cream Cleanser that you’ve mentioned so I’ll have to add that to my list of products to try immediately as this brand never fails to impress me!! I also really need to take the plunge and try out that Pai Rosehip Bioregenerate Oil as everyone seems to be talking about and I have absolutely in love with their Cleanser, plus you can’t beat a good face oil! Lovely post, I always think skincare is one of the most important things too 🙂

  4. Hi! This is such a helpful post! I’m definitely in the same boat – the older I get, the more I value good skin care products over high end make up, although both are nice and something I love!
