Bioderma Sensibio Tonic Lotion

Bioderma, known by many for it’s cult favorite micellar water, also has a toner from the same Sensibio line. Don’t let the name on the bottle confuse you: the French call it a toning lotion, it’s their terminology for what we on this side of the Atlantic would call a toner. The amount of dirt it collects that my cleanser somehow missed has become an almost ritual experience in my skincare routine. The formula is packed with skin soothing ingredients and antioxidants, and lacks the near omnipresence of fragrance (found in so many other skin care products). Even if your skin isn’t sensitive, this toner is a worthy staple for your arsenal of products.

La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume B5

Another favorite brand from France, this balm is the best. Panthenol, shea butter, copper, and zinc are just a few of the star ingredients in this balm, which lend to it’s five star reviews from numerous websites. Bonus: it’s gentle enough to use on little ones as young as four months.

Farmacy Honey Savior All-in-One Repair Salve

This is one of those products that I’ve used scissors to open for the last few drops. It’s one of the few items that keeps my lips hydrated, my brows tamed, and my flyaways calm on my hairline. It’s also great for adding to a hydrating hair masque. Containing honey, castor oil, and skin repairing sunflower oil, this potent salve is a mainstay product on my shelf.

Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Exfoliant

Exfoliating is a tricky beast. And a beast worth taming. Gentle and antioxidant infused, this salicylic acid based exfoliant is pH balanced to clear and minimize pores, while removing layers of dead skin. As we age, our skin’s efficacy to exfoliate decreases; however, using this chemical exfoliant is both nourishing and potent.
