What my daughter is bringing to university

As summer draws to a close, it's time to get my daughter ready for university. Along with clothes, bedding and comforts of home, she is packing her clean beauty skin care and personal care essentials. These basics are her companions for late-night study sessions and new adventures. It's more than skin care; it's a reminder of home as she steps into this exciting new phase of life.


Facial cleanser: Eminence Stone Crop Gel Wash is the perfect everyday cleanser for teens and all skin types.

Exfoliator: Charcoal Cleanser has a light exfoliating and detoxifying action to use a a cleanser every 3 days.

Toner: Laurel Chamomile Hydrosol is a calming, balancing toner. It is great for acne or sensitive skin.

Moisturizer: Laurel Balance Serum is a lightweight oil serum-moisturizer. Perfect for balancing oily, sensitive or acne-prone skin.

Mask: Eminence Clear Skin Masque is a perfect overnight treatment to address breakouts. My daughter also uses it as a spot treatment.


Concealer: Hynt Duet Perfecting Concealer (medium tan), a creamy multi-use concealer. My daughter can use it for covering blemishes or as a foundation (a little goes a long way!).

Highlighter: Minori Cream Highlighter (Golden) a creamy, easy to use highlighter. She uses it on the cheekbone, brow bone, insides of the eyelid.
