When I was a young girl my grandmother told me whatever I put on my face in my youth would reflect the appearance of my skin as an adult. She reiterated time and time again that you get what you pay for. That explains her beauty cabinet. At the time cosmetics and skin care seemed a financial obligation I couldn’t burden. After all luxury expenses when you are on a college budget isn’t sensible.

Through the first half of my twenties I got by on the necessities which included a variation of affordable drugstore over the counter products mixed with splurging on DIY treatments and creams. By my late twenties things began to shift and I realized my grandma was right. You have to love your skin if you want it to love you back. It was then that my bank account and credit cards took a huge hit with monthly facials and anti-aging creams. By now I’ve tried them all. With tens of thousands drained on skin care and no real improvements it was time to make a change.

It happened by a fluke chance one evening after work when I went to the department store I buy all of my beauty products from. The facial cleanser I had been using religiously for a decade was discontinued. I have extremely sensitive skin so switching to a new cleanser is always part trial and error of will this or won’t this break out my skin. The specialist working the counter did a quick consultation of my skin and recommended Philosophy Skin Care products. I asked for a sample and did my due diligence on the lineup while I tested the product. After serious consideration I decided these products seemed a good fit for my skin. Its been 6 months since I made the transition to the Philosophy line and my skin is thanking me for it.


Here is a List of Skin Care Products I Swear by
