Skin is the largest organ on your body (SERIOUSLY!) so there’s a good reason to take care of it with must-have beauty products – especially when it’s on your face. From sunscreen to the pads we use to take off makeup, every detail of our routine is thought through. Were we always like this? Nope! Enter: Age numbers with 3 in front of them. After a few of them, we realized we’re not as invincible as we thought.
Ya, feel me??
Looking to the beauties in our #squad for advice, we posed a question about the beauty products they must have in their arsenal. The results? Basic as hell, tbh. We were expecting to hear about splurges on 18k gold masks and tubs of La Mer. But, hey, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
Check out their choices below and comment with your faves!

Her Pick: Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye Cream
Why she likes it: Kiehl’s is the one-stop holy grail of gentle skin care and I mean have you seen Lauren’s face? Her bags are designer and she’s carrying them, not wearing them thanks to this eye cream!

Why she likes it: If nothing else, the name should encourage you to try this- I mean, “Solid Oil,” what is that? Well in hot girl summer beauty terms- it’s a dreamy, organic, self-power for your face, hair, hands (or anywhere in need of loving repair) all in one pot!

Why she likes it: Yea, we know what you are thinking- been there, done that! But, classics never go out of style! Next time you are in the market for a facial cleanser that thoroughly removes the day’s make-up, dirt, and oil without drying the skin this is your guy.
