Current Skincare Routine (Feat. YÜLI, In Fiore, and Josh Rosebrook Reviews)


Lately, I think many people in the green beauty community have been feeling overwhelmed by new products and a pressure to keep up with unrealistic instagram skincare routines that feature a new product every week, claiming it to be the “next best thing” as more brands hop on the healthy living and wellness trend. While I, myself, am also susceptible to falling for the latest skincare trends and social media hype, I’ve been on a journey to curate a more balanced, minimalistic skincare routine that revolves around the Beauty Heroes motto: “Use Less.

When I first started transitioning into green beauty, I didn’t really know where to start. Sure, I could’ve explored my local Whole Food or Sprouts to pick up some products, but I am the kind of person that loves to do my research before investing in any product. I used Google to find blogs to get some suggestions and reviews on brands that I had never heard of and were only available online. Now, the search for cruelty-free, non-toxic beauty products is simplified with beauty box subscriptions that allow you to try samples or full-size products that have been curated for you based on certain criteria.
