The Skincare Must-Have for Your Christmas List

Skincare is important to me. Clean skin is non-negotiable, but so is time management. With three kids under six, I don’t have an hour to spend in front of the mirror applying creams and serums when I’m yelling at my tribe to brush their teeth. I use a good face cleanser and moisturizer, but, let’s face it, sometimes “clean skin” means grabbing a makeup wipe and crashing right into bed.

During the holidays, there are times when I find myself rushing around frantically. There are gifts to buy, cookies to bake, kids to take care of…it can be a lot, and it takes a toll on my skin. The sweat of being a busy mama of three never ceases to stop!

In my nightly routine, I use Kleenex® Facial Cleansing products to wipe away my makeup from the day. I’m loving their holiday Very Merry Cleansing Collection because it has everything I need: Eye Makeup Removers that really work to get off every last bit of undereye concealer, Cotton Soft Pads for extra makeup cleanup, Daily Cleansing Cushions, Facial Cleansing Wipes to wash my face (for long days I can barely make it to the sink!) and even to scrub and massage my skin, and Exfoliating Cushions that totally illuminate and brighten my skin. The holiday bundle comes with super cute dispensers that keep all my products organized and make refills easy. The bundle is on my Christmas list for sure!

What is your skincare routine? What products do you use? Drop me a comment, I’d love to know!

    I love Formula 10.0.6 and their products! But I’m also loving Neutragena’s foaming cleanser for getting makeup! My most basic skincare routine is drinking lots of water to make sure my skin stays hydrated!

  • Addie

    I LOVE PCA Skin 5% BPO Cleanser and Rebalance moisturizer. My go to always!

  • Charla

    I actually love to use coconut oil. I just massage a bit into my skin, then rinse with warm water and a wash cloth. It removes all of my makeup and leaves my skin feeling soft and clean (no oily residue).

    Great info I have never been big on skin care but now that I am older I really want to get more into it so this is very helpful

  • MichelleV

    My daughter loves all natural products and she got me into the non-chemical products, the one I love is 100%Pure co.

  • Megan

    I’ve been searching for a great makeup remover! I’m going to have to try the Kleenex brand! What I really would love to know is where you get those amazingly comfy looking Tshirts! Comfy sexy goals <3

    I’m currently using H2o foaming cleanser , it’s really great for oily skin the foaming toner is great also

    Kleenex has discontinued their facial products line and I’ve been trying to leave them a comment, but for whatever reason, I can’t! I was just hoping they would maybe have some future plans to sell their products again. Even if they start online sales only, I’d be alright with that.
    By the way, Gen, thank you so much for all these wonderful tips and tricks you’ve been sharing with us! You rock!

    I’ve been using the Biore line of products for the past few years and recently made the discovery of their baking soda cleansing micellar water. What a total difference this stuff has made for my tough, combination skin! I’ve been back and forth to my dermatologist, on different medicines to try and control breakouts, ugh, so frustrating! I’m so relieved to finally have something that actually works. Plus, the differin gel, totally Ah-mazing! Let me tell you, I would still have the face of a preteen going through puberty if it weren’t for my strict beauty regimen of washing/wipe away dirt and oil three times a day and using differin, right after my herbal toner, of course, at night!

    I use Burt’s Bees but I’m mostly just fighting with acne

    The medsvilla product that I like for my face is organic coconut oil. I also use olive oil for the rest of my skin for long winter months in the North East. With a few drops of lavender essential oil added for scent it’s yummy. It absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave a heavy feeling.
