Best Affordable Skincare Favorites of 2017

My skin has battled dryness, texture and fine lines for a long time and between weather changes and not drinking enough water, it has gone worse. This year, I decided to make my top priority taking care of my skin. I wanted a healthy and hydrated skin for a beautiful long-lasting makeup application. For that, I changed my skincare products and established a skincare routine. On this post, I’ll share my skincare favorites of this year. The ones that helped me improve my skin’s texture and appearance.


Aveeno Skincare Favorites

First off, I have to talk about my favorite discovery of 2017. It is not a discovery per se, but I first started using this brand this year. I have very dry and sensitive skin and the face cleanser and scrub that I was using, although they were meant to be for dry skin, left my skin drier and feeling rough. I decided to try Aveeno products. What drew me to them was that they are made for sensitive skin and claim to be soft and gentle on the skin. Those words were music to my ears and I immediately bought them. On my first buy, I got the Positively Radiant Brightening Cleanser and the Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub.

The cleanser is support soft on the skin, removes dirt and makeup. It leaves your skin hydrated and feeling like a baby’s butt. The facial scrub is also very gentle and can be used every day. It exfoliates, hydrates and leaves the skin extra soft. Together they’re the perfect cleansing combo and I recommend this two products to anyone.

I wrote a post on these products because I loved them so much and Aveeno was so kind to gift me the Positively Radiant Overnight Hydrating Facial. It is recommended to be used every other day, substituting your everyday moisturizer for this one. Since I have dry skin, I used it every night and oh boy, it is magic in a bottle. It is a cream but surprisingly it is not thick or heavy. It is very hydrating, soft and fast absorbent. The next day, your skin looks radiant, soft, even and ready to slay the day. With continued use, it improves your skin’s texture and hydration. It is not in the photo because I ran out, lol.


Neutrogena Skincare Favorites

I have tried a lot of Neutrogena products but sadly they dry out and irritate my skin. They’re too harsh for me, except for this scrub. I have been using this for almost two years and although I did not start using it this one, I thought it was fair enough to include it because I have not stopped using this guy. Neutrogena’s Deep Clean Foaming Scrub is the most refreshing exfoliator I have ever tried and surprisingly enough, it does not make my skin dry. It removes dirt, dry skin and helps improve your skin’s texture. It leaves your skin feeling extra fresh and soft.

Garnier Skincare Favorites

I have been using the micellar water for more than a year, but it was in 2017 when I picked up their micellar makeup removing towelettes. I honestly don’t know why I didn’t pick this one earlier. I absolutely love them. For some reason, I thought it was going to be different than the micellar water. However, it is the same thing, just on a wipe. It saves you time and money because you don’t have to buy cotton pads. It doesn’t  irritate my eyes or make my skin dry. I am in love and will continue to buy tons of these.

Air Repair Skin Care Favorites

Last but not least. The amazing team of Air Repair Skin Care sent me their skincare kit to try them out and I have to say that their moisturizer is my favorite. It is a cream, but not thick or heavy. Fast absorbent and leaves your skin super soft and hydrated. It is only 2oz but you only need a small amount. I’ve had this guy for more than two months and I still have plenty. This skin care brand is amazing, their team is brilliant and I really think you should check them out.

Hola muñequitas! Este post me emociona mucho y es que me encanta leer posts de fin de año o de favoritos. Me emociona aún más porque este año puedo escribir el mío. Este en especial es sobre mis productos favoritos del cuidado de la piel. Luego de este verán unos sobre mis favoritos de belleza y también les grabaré un video sobre ambos. Todos estos productos fueron los que usé durante todo el año y los que me ayudaron a mantener mi piel saludable.


Este fue mi descubrimiento favorito de todo el año. Obviamente ya sabía que Aveeno existía, pero no los había tratado. Decidí cambiar de limpiadora por que las que estaba utilizando, aunque eran para piel seca, sentía que me resecaban el rostro. Opté por Aveeno por que se enfocan en productos para piel sensitiva y prometen dejar el rostro hidratado, suave y sedoso. En mi primera compra cogí el “Positively Radiant Brightening Cleanser” y el “Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub”.

La limpiadora se convirtió en mi favorita al momento que la usé. Se siente bien suave en el rostro, remueve el maquillaje y no te deja la piel seca. El exfoliante es excelente también. Es bien suave en el rostro, lo que hace que lo puedas usar todos los días. Remueve impurezas y limpia más a fondo. Siempre utilizo la limpiadora primero y luego el exfoliador y los resultados son increíbles. Me dejan el rostro extremadamente suave.

Luego de amar tanto estos productos escribí una reseña sobre ellos y la gente linda de Aveeno me enviaron el “Positively Radiant Overnight Hydrating Facial” como regalo. Es una crema de noche hidratante. Es bien liviana y la piel lo absorbe rápidamente. Recomiendan que la substituyas uno que otro día por tu hidratante regular. En mi caso, la uso todas las noches porque mi piel es demasiado seca. Mi piel amanece súper suave e hidratada y si la usas con frecuencia, mejora la textura de tu piel. Esta crema me gusta más que la de Garnier y que el Hydroboost de Neutrogena.


Los productos Neutrogena son bien fuertes para mi piel y también la resecan mucho. Con excepción del “Deep Clean Foaming Scrub” Este exfoliador es bien suave en la piel y bien hidratante. Remueve impurezas y limpia más a fondo. La piel se siente bien fresca y suave luego de exfoliar.


Llevo mucho tiempo usando el agua micelar de Garnier, pero por alguna razón no había tratado las toallas desmaquillantes de agua micelar. Pensaba que no iban a ser la misma fórmula. Decidí tratarlas porque quería tener unas toallas desmaquillantes y las que había tratado antes no me gustaban. Son EXCELENTES. Su fórmula es igual que el agua micelar regular. Son suaves y no irritan la piel.

Air Repair Skincare

Último, pero no menos importante. La gente linda de Air Repair Skincare me enviaron su kit de productos para tratarlos. Sin duda alguna mi favorito es el humectante. Es en crema, pero bien liviana y la piel lo absorbe al momento. Es bien refrescante y te deja la piel extremadamente suave. El producto trae solo dos onzas, pero es tan concentrado que no necesitas mucho. Yo llevo un mes y medio con el mío y aún me queda bastante. Si no saben de la marca Air Repair Skincare les recomiendo que vayan a ver, les va a encantar.

Eso es todo por este post, espero que les haya gustado. Estos son los productos que verdaderamente me han ayudado a combatir la resequedad en la piel y mejorar la textura. Espero que les haya gustado y no olviden compartir abajo cuales fueros sus productos favoritos del año.
