My skincare routine is the highlight of my morning and evening. Taking a few moments to care for my skin always helps me feel refreshed inside and out. However, as someone with perpetually dry skin, I have to be incredibly thoughtful about the products I slather on. I prefer to keep my routine simple, using only a few gentle products specifically formulated to deliver long-lasting hydration. 

I'm always overjoyed when I discover products that perfectly align with my skincare philosophy. So when COVERGIRL's new Clean Fresh Skincare collection landed on my radar, I immediately knew I had to give it a try. As a longtime fan of COVERGIRL's makeup (the Clean Fresh Skin Milk Foundation is my go-to), I naturally had high expectations for the brand's debut into skincare.

CoverGirl Clean Fresh Skincare Line

The range consists of a cream cleanser, a vitamin C toning mist, and three moisturizers for varying skin types. On paper, the collection checks off all of my must-haves. The clean products are made with 100% vegan ingredients that provide supercharged hydration (TruClean™ cactus water is the star), are affordable (every item is under $15), and are housed in sustainable packaging. And last but not least, they're all cruelty-free. 

I decided to put the brand's Hydrating Cream Cleanser, Priming Glow Mist, and Dry Skin Corrector Cream to the test. Ahead, discover how each of the products worked for me.

Hydrating Cream Cleanser

Hydrating Cream Cleanser
COVERGIRL Hydrating Cream Cleanser $9.99

My ideal cleanser is one that easily removes every stitch of dirt and makeup (without stripping my skin, of course). This product melts away any impurities and offers a delightful sensorial experience.

When I massaged the cleanser onto my face, it felt like silk on my skin. After rinsing it off, this soft pillowy feeling remained. The cleanser's nourishing formula is responsible for this. In addition to the brand's TruClean™ cactus water, it's also infused with meadowfoam seed oil, which is known to seal in moisture and soften the skin. Needless to say, the Hydrating Cream Cleanser is a star in my eyes.

Priming Glow Mist

COVERGIRL Priming Glow Mist
COVERGIRL Priming Glow Mist $9.99

I love toning mists because they're a powerhouse multi-purpose product. I use them to prep my skin before applying moisturizer and refresh my skin throughout the day. The Priming Glow Mist has earned staple status in my routine for its ability to rejuvenate my skin in seconds. The electrolyte-rich cactus water helps add moisture to my parched skin. Meanwhile, rosewater and vitamin C work together to soothe and add radiance to my complexion.

Dry Skin Corrector Cream

COVERGIRL Dry Skin Corrector Cream $14.99

As mentioned, I deal with chronic skin dryness. Because of this, I have to use face creams that provide intense hydration. The Dry Skin Corrector Cream definitely delivers in this regard. It's made with 90% naturally-derived ingredients—including hyaluronic acid and jojoba and shea butter—which help lock in all-day moisture.

After rubbing a dollop of this cream across my face, it absorbed quickly (no greasiness here!) and left my skin feeling thoroughly nourished. Whenever I use this, I'm left in awe of its ability to transform my skin from dull and dehydrated to bouncy and dewy.
