Are you tired of walking aimlessly around Sephora or Ulta picking up eye-catching products based on their pretty packaging or recognition of an influencer naming it a “must have”? Let us break something to you, the best stuff out there doesn’t always have a divine fragrance, fancy packaging, luxurious consistency, crystal or gold flaked additives, or a pretty color.
We would like to introduce you to Glytone and Avene - medical grade skin care brands that have options for just about everyone. And they are easy to use. But the best news yet, is the fact that they are extremely affordable.

If you're still unsure what's best to use, please do something versus nothing. At the bare minimum, you should be washing your face twice a day, putting on sunscreen in the morning, and applying a type of serum / moisturizer to hydrate and target any skin concerns you may have. Retinol is a great addition to your routine as it is brightening, firming, plumping and anti aging - doesn’t really get better than that.
