4 Must Have Beauty Products for 2017

2017 is about embracing your natural look, minimal makeup, and dewy looking skin. The first thing in achieving healthy and glowing skin is using the right products.

Today I’m sharing some of my favorite must-have beauty products for 2017.


Micellar water is made of tiny micelles, which are oil molecules dissolved in soft water. The surprising thing is that it doesn’t leave your skin oily as you might think it will. Instead, it removes makeup and dirt, leaving your skin fresh and clean.

La Roche-Posay Micellar water can be used as a cleanser, toner and makeup remover.

I’ve been using this particular micellar water for about six months now. It comes in a big bottle that lasts quite a long time. It does an excellent job of removing makeup, and it feels just like water.


First off, this cream has a gel-like texture that is also light and can be easily applied to your face.

I use it in the evening on my face and neck. It keeps my skin moisturized throughout the night, and it smells lovely.

This Skin Sleep Night Recovery cream comes in a cute pink jar with a mirror on top of the lid. Which I consider a huge plus because I don’t need to be in front of a mirror to apply the cream, I just use the lid. Also, the cream itself has a light pink color, and it looks like a sweet dessert.

It contains caffeine, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin B3. All of these ingredients help with early signs of aging, improve microcirculation and stimulate cell renewal.


There has been a lot of talk about face masks lately – sheet masks, silver masks, black masks, clay masks, and much more.

One of my favorites is the dead sea mud mask. It does a great job to clear the pores while absorbing any excess oil and exfoliates the skin.

I apply a thin layer of the mask after cleansing, and I leave it on for about 15-20 minutes until its completely dry. It can be easily removed with warm water, and it leaves you with moisturized and healthier-looking skin.


I’ve been using thermal water for many years now.

It’s a fantastic product and extremely gentle that I even let my 8-year-old daughter use it on her face. Actually, she’s been using it since she was a baby.

In the past, french doctors used only thermal water to treat eczemas or burns. It helps soothe, calm and soften the skin. It also contains selenium which is a powerful natural antioxidant.

You can use thermal water instead of a toner. It’s so easy to use, I just spray it on my face from a distance and leave it on for 2 to 3 minutes, then pat dry with a cotton pad. Most times I even let it dry on my skin.

    do you use the thermal water in the morning when you cleanse (before applying makeup) or in the evening (after removing make up) before applying your skin cream? I’ve also been experimenting with face masks. My friend sells Posh and I really like some of theirs, I’ll have to try this one. Thank you. 🙂

    • I usually use the thermal water in the evening to remove my makeup. It is supposed to be really good for your skin. Although you can use it any time of the day instead of cleansing wipes.
      Let me know what you think of the mask when you try it out.
