PEEK INSIDE JAIMI'S SKINCARE DRAWER
I used to get so much satisfaction from trying all the new skincare and makeup products. I owned a beauty agency and was a beauty blogger so I was always focused on trying new things. Now, after a change in career and as I've gotten older, I much prefer the idea of finding a really excellent product and then sticking with it. When I love something enough to buy it on repeat, that’s the win. I also very much value clean beauty now which also informs my picks.
I thought it would be fun to share my skincare faves. The products we carry on the shelves at The Well Lived Woman are ones I genuinely love and personally use, but some of my other faves are found elsewhere. Point being, this is me carrying what I love not promoting what we carry.
I am a devout double-cleanse person. I like to take my makeup off and do the initial cleanse with an emulsifying oil cleanser. This clean-beauty one is so effective I’ve been using it religiously for almost 10 years and I don’t always feel like I need to do the second step of face wash after.
I want a very straightforward face wash… to clean my face without being harsh. This one is perfect and I really like the palo santo scent and simple packaging. Bonus points if you can use it on hair and body.
I need to have both a physical exfoliant and chemical exfoliant in my skincare routine. This one is the best. It’s superfine so that it’s gentle while very thorough.
This is such a great exfoliator. You put it on at night a couple times a week and wake up with a brighter, smoother complexion.
This is the most luxurious face treatment. It has a beautiful rose scent and feels so good to apply and the fact it’s effective at evening skin tone and elasticity too feels like a perk.
Their blue-tansy soothing cream is so hydrating in a fully-soaked-in and never greasy kind of way. I love gifting this to people and wish Primally Pure let me carry it in the shop. Note: I don’t love their other products as much except for their Baby Balm so don’t get over enthusiastic on their website.
I have yet to find a face oil that I’m in LOVE with. I like the extra moisture but they all seem same-ish to me. That said, I really LIKE this one… the unisex natural scent, the feeling, and the price. I am open to suggestions of a face oil you swear by though!
