Here are some of my favorites that are on sale. Get them while you can! Items are known to sell out during this sale.

Indie Lee Squalene Facial Oil

Squalene oil is derived from olives, and although that sounds like it might be thick and heavy, this oil melts into skin like a dream. It manages to feel light, soak right into skin, and give you the perfect amount of extra moisture that you can layer under your lotion at night or during the day. Plus, this line is non-toxic! Bonus!

Drunk Elephant D-Bronzi Anti-Pollution Sunshine Serum

That’s a long product name for something that’s pretty simple–this makes you glow. Put a couple drops into your daytime SPF to get a lightly-bronzed look that gives your skin the perfect amount of Wow. This product is also non-toxic and safe for pregnant or nursing mamas!

Other SPF Favorites:

Clinique Broad Spectrum SPF 25 Mineral Moisturizer

Supergoop! Daily Correct CC Cream (Mineral-Only SPF)

Peter Thomas Roth Max Mineral Naked SPF 45

FAB Triple Protection Skin Tint

Drunk Elephant C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream

Unlike most eye creams that do nothing more than moisturize, this formula noticeably brightens my under-eye area. The boost of antioxidant Vitamin C is a great addition to any skincare routine, too.

SK-II Facial Treatment Essence

Think of it as a toner on steroids. The makers of this product call the active ingredient, Pitera, a “miracle ingredient.” I’m not in the business of exaggerating (or of skin care), but believe me when I say, when I use this, I glow. And I was such a skeptic before I tried it myself. Expensive, but worth the purchase in exchange for the glow you get. Also, this 2.5 oz bottle should last you at least six months when used nightly. (Mine is just about to be empty almost 10 months since I purchased it.)

Oh, and if you’re using this, do not apply it to a cotton pad. Simply splash a few drops into the palms of your hands and press into your cleansed face.
