Byrdie Readers' Holy Grail Skincare Products, According to Instagram
We try dozens of skincare products that we like, and we rotate through a handful that we love. But then there are those select few that have transformed our complexions so much that we can't imagine life without them. These are the products that have taken up permanent residence on our vanities; that we'd purchase again and again if it meant we had to eat ramen for weeks on end. We push them on our friends and acquaintances so fervently that the brands might as well just give us honorary spokesperson status. (Or maybe freebies for life?)
That being said, nothing makes us happier than adding to this esteemed lineup, and we're perpetually on the hunt for new products to blow us away. So we thought we'd turn the conversation over to our favorite savvy beauty fans: you. We put the call out on Instagram for your holy grail skincare formulas, and you delivered. Here are your answers.
La Roche-Posay Anthelios 50 Mineral Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid ($34)
"THE BEST. It is super lightweight but has top ratings for sun protection. It also blurs my imperfections on the skin without providing actual coverage. I often mix it with my foundations to create a more dewy sheer look!"
Root Science Youth Facial Serum ($50)
"Root Science products are, hands-down, life-changing. Their cleansing bar is the only cleanser that doesn't dry out my skin and their Youth serum is a miracle worker! I use it twice a day, religiously! It's healed my acne prone skin and faded stubborn scars. Highly recommend!"
Drunk Elephant Umbra Sheer Physical Defense ($38)
"Favorite product ever. [It] melts into skin, the ingredients are so soothing, and I rest easy knowing I'm super protected without any of the bad stuff. My pores disappear when I use this and the finish is the perfect balance between dewy and velvety."
