Skincare In Your 30s – The 3 Products I Can’t Live Without


Skincare in your 30s looks completely different than when in your 20s. At least I think it is. Thankfully, I’ve found some products that allow me to feel OK when going sans foundation.

These isn’t a sponsored post nor am I getting paid by any of these companies.  However, there are some affiliate links which Rebel Soul Mom makes a small commission. Thanks for reading and supporting this stay at home momma! 

I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while now.  Part of me struggles with writing about things I love that come in tangible forms (ie.plastic), verses in the shape of my two little humans. Writing about gratitude, my kids and mom life in general, come natural to me. This type of post requires a little more effort from my writing brain. If I really want to twist the meaning and find my redemption of this post, not having to wear foundation every day and still feel decent enough to stroll through Publix, bring me joy and gratitude. There! Connection made.

In my 20’s, I never thought about wrinkles or characteristics such as uneven skin tone.  Wearing sunscreen on my face was weird and unnecessary.  There were many nights where I would go to bed without washing my face and I still had clear skin.

Luck and genetics, I thought. Silly 20-something girl.

 Snapchat’s face swap opened my eyes to my 30- something skin

While playing around with the different filters in Snapchat,  When I did my first face-swap with her, I was like….whoa. I know this sounds a little weird, then again I’m self-proclaimed wierdo. Seeing her baby smooth skin “swapped” on mind was a little dishearting and so began my search for good face products.

Check out the tweet right after my face swap discovery:

The 3 Facial Products That Made a Huge Difference In My Skin

Mia 2® Facial Cleansing Brush

If there was only product you could buy, make it this one. With a $169 price-point, consider it an investment in your skin. Better yet,  put in on your Christmas list like I did. When researching this product I found that people had varying timeframes when it came to seeing results. For me, it wasn’t until month 3 before I started noticing a difference.

Mia-Clarisonic removes six times more makeup than manual cleansing, cleansing so well that products absorb better       –

I’m not getting paid to promote this. It’s just that good! The Clarisonic website has tons of information on the different products they have, but you can also get it at Sephora or Amazon.

Fresh Soy Face Cleanser

I received a sample of this cleanser either through Influenster or Sephora. Since then, I haven’t bought anything else. It comes in two different price points, $15 & $38. Seriously, this stuff is amazing and it smells like no other facial cleanser I’ve tried.

These stats are found on thier website:

    •  97% reported more supple skin
    • 93% said it soothed and softened their skin
    • 90% said their skin was balanced and healthy-looking
    • 86% felt it visibly improved the appearance of the skin
    • 86% felt it left their skin toned and radiant * in vivo

I can personal say that I agree with these 100%.  This cleanser has ingredients like soy-proteins, rosewater (amazing smell), cucumber extract and borage seed oil. Aside from the fact that they use natural ingredients, everything about this brand is woth loving.

Drunk Elephant B-Hydra™ Intensive Hydration Gel

Remember that uneven skin tone I was talking about earlier? Well, my 30-something skin has some serious uneven texture issues. Basically the lady at Sephora told me this is what I needed. Who was I to argue?  One of the claims is that it specifically, improves the appearance of face texture and tone. This is a bit pricey at $52, so if there’s something else comporable that you’ve tried, please let me know.

Keep in mind that you won’t find silicones, chemical screens, sensitizing colorants, perfumes, or fragrant essential oils of any kind in any Drunk Elephant product. Other nasties such as parabens, sulfates and phthalates are also left out of this product.

There it is. My three gaming changing products for skincare in your 30s. You will notice that a facial moisturizer isn’t on this list, but I’m still testing some out. Right now, I’m using Origins GinZing. I’m liking it so far.

    I totally agree with you that my skin in my 30s is so different. I feel like my skin is more like a teenagers skin since I break out and have oily spots. Ive been making my own coconut oil based products which has helped so much. The facial cleanser brush is on my Christmas list for my family. I really want it.

    This is a great list! I’m in my 20’s and never thought about a skincare routine until lately. I’m still trying to find a product that works for my skin.

      If you’re at least washing your face every night you are doing better than I was! haha! Seriously though….I think if I started early, I wouldn’t be buying this expensive stuff! Or at least not in my early thirties!

    As if dealing with my body after four babies hasn’t made my thirties hard enough, my skin is now freaking out. Thanks for this list!
