Poll: What beauty products do you wish you'd known about earlier?

So the post I did earlier about cleansing oil got me wondering... what are some beauty or skincare products you wish you'd known about long before you actually discovered them?




For me one of the answers would definitely be cleansing oils and balms. I only discovered the concept of double cleansing a few years ago (I'm nearly 30 now, so derp), and before that I cursed the skies daily because I could never figure out how to get all my foundation off. Makeup wipes helped, but they dried out my skin and didn't always get everything off.

In retrospect I feel kind of dumb for not realizing that this was a good idea, because back when I was a member of my high school's drama club (aww yeah) we used Pond's Cold Cream to take our stage makeup off after performances. Cold cream is basically like a more solid form of cleansing oil, guys. Double-derp.


Anyway, what are some beauty products you wish you'd known about much earlier? Let us know in the comments - you may even be helping out me or a fellow reader! :)

  1. For me it'd be pore concealers :P they leave your skin soo smooth and soft, and pores have always been a big problem for me.

    I'll be introducing cleansing oils into my routine soon, maybe I'll change my mind soon and say cleansing oils instead :D haha

    1. I don't have much experience with those, but I can see how they would a game changer! I actually have a small crater-like scar on the side of my nose (thanks to acne) and I've been meaning to try out some pore fillers on that. Do you have any brands you really love?

  2. BB Cream. You should see my high school formal pictures. Great eye make up, but terrible skin, because I hated the idea of foundation (too heavy). T___T

    1. Oh, I totally identify with this. I wore foundation sometimes in high school, but I stole it off my mom so it was never the right shade or consistency for my skin. So yeah, I had good eye makeup but a total hot mess of a face. :/

    1. Interesting! Do you find it gentler than other exfoliating pads or sponges?

  4. For me silicon cleasing pads and Italy towels (in my opinion best scrub gloves ever)...I hate dead skin XD

  5. Good but gentle regular skin exfoliation = less dead skin cells means smoother skin, and better absorption of all the expensive serum and lotion and cream, and eventually I will need less foundation use and better result :)

    1. So true. :) What is your favorite method of exfoliation? Do you use chemical exfoliation or a brush or something else?
