my lucite dreams ‘Best of Beauty’ Skin Care 2014

This past year has been beautiful in thanks to you, my dear readers. I want to extend my sincere gratitude and love for your continued support.

In this New Year, I’m taking a look back to share with with you my stand-out products of 2014. In this post I am featuring skin care. From toners, to serums, to masks, these products have shined the brightest in 2014.


Shea Terra Acacia Honey & Argan Oil (Api-Therapy) Facial Wash

This incredible cleanser softens this skin as it gently cleanses and keeps my acne at bay. (review)

The Problem Solver is an intense mask that deeply cleanses like none other. It’s a multi-tasking mask that detoxifies, battles dehydration, increases circulation and fights blemishes. (purchase)

Wedderspoon’s Manuka Honey is a godsend for a variety of skin concerns. This sweet treat is a regular in my routine as a spot treatment, mask and cleanser. I am continually amazed at how effective this product from the pantry is for the skin. (review) (purchase)

I was lucky enough to sample this gorgeous Face Serum from Lina Hanson this year. It keeps my skin moisturized and radiant and has made its way into my holy grail of skin care. (review) (purchase)

      1. You definitely need to try it! The scent is amazing! And it is such a versatile product! It’s like it has a radar incorporated which finds your problems and solves them! Especially amazing during the cold winter months, it’s totally worthy of that hefty price tag it comes with! 🙈
        Lots of xx

  1. These are all lovely! I can’t decide which I love the best. I am a big fan of the ED4OLO Vitamin B Cleansing Oil and using raw manuka honey too. I’d also love to try Gressa Skin + more from Luna Hanson and May Lindstrom.

  2. Ooh what a lovely selection of green beauty products! I have the OLO4ED oil but haven’t opened it yet as I have a few to use up first but I am dying to try it!!

  3. This is only the second time that I hear about Manuka Honey. the first being Ardence Inn’s eyeshadows that contain it. Looks like some nice products to check out!

  4. Great post and a great collection of favorites! I do suffer from the occasional breakouts so I will be researching and putting some of these products on my wishlist! I have and love the One Love Organics cleansing oil 🙂 I really want to try May Lindstorm but the products are so expensive 😦 I know they are amazing and worth the price tag but I just can’t seem to make the leap!

    1. I was in the same boat with you in terms of May’s prices… However I did some calculating and discovered that you do receive a significantly generous amount in one bottle. More than double my other masks. Also their is no water in the powdered masks, so u use less.

  5. Hi I’m catching up on the blog enjoying past posts. Reading through these I didn’t find any product noted with a SPF. Just curious as to what products you use if you do or if not as to why? Perhaps you use one in your cosmetics foundation But I would enjoy a post on spf – if you’ve not done so again forgive pls if you have being new here so I’ve not been able to read through past posts fully. Best regards!

    1. Hello,
      I don’t wear sunscreen in the winter, I literally never see the sun. In the summer I enjoy Coola’s line of Sunscreen, especially the tinted mineral line. I have a post, if you just search ‘Coola’. I use the spray version on my body. I also use the La Roche Posey Anthelios line. Not clean by any means, but I love the texture.
