Oh, Make Me Over: My Morning Beauty Routine

Fave products for your morning beauty routine

I’ve talked about my work uniform and my go-to hair dos. So, today I’m sharing what goes into my morning (and night) beauty routine and the products that I absolutely love.

Before we get started I feel like I should mention that these are the products I really use day to day. I bought them myself (well one was a gift from a friend, but you know what I mean) and use them all the time.

Here are the products I use in the morning and/or at night, as part of my everyday beauty routine…

My fave lotion…Korres body butter in jasmine. It smells SO good. I use this on my arms and legs in the morning, after a shower or anytime my skin is feeling dry.

And then I keep Herbovore’s body oil (also in jasmine) in my purse for when I’m not at home. My skin is a bit more glowy whenever I use the body oil, over the Korres body butter, so if you’re looking for that this is a good one. Obviously, I have a thing for Jasmine since half of my morning routine includes that scent. Ha.

Dry shampoo is a must for me because I don’t wash my hair everyday. And I love Alder New York’s hair powder in between washings. This 4 oz bottle has lasted me forever…to the point where the packaging has changed since I last bought it. 

Bath salts! This is more of a night time thing, whenever I take a bath (which isn’t every night), but I love bath salts. Sometimes I make my own and sometimes I buy ’em. This bottle was actually a gift from a friend (thanks Ash) and I love it.

I use Josie Maran’s pure organ milk on my face. And I’ve also used Algenist anti-aging moisturizer (the one with SPF) in the past. It’s pretty pricey, but it does work.

And last but not least… My absolute favorite hand cream (and I’ve tried quite a few), is this one by Grown Alchemist.

It’s vanilla and orange peel scented and smells like an orange creamsicle. So, you may have to stop people from licking your hand. 🙂

It smells SO good, Hillary. I highly recommend giving it a try.


Thanks for the suggestions! I don’t have much in the way of a regular skincare routine at the moment, so I’ve been doing some research on recommended products. I definitely like the sound of orange creamsicle hand cream 🙂


Agreed Yiota. It’s good stuff!


I love Korres, it’s one of my favourite greek brands and they have amazing products! 🙂
