Best 17 of 2017 – Skin and Hair Care

Hello, hello!

Today I am sharing my picks for the best of 2017 in Skincare, Bath / Body and Hair Care – in some categories I picked more than one product.


Best of Skin1

Best Cleansers of 2017 – Farmacy Beauty Green Clean Balm and Juice Beauty Brightening Gel Cleanser. Both have become my favourite cleansers that I tried this past year! Reviewed here and here.

Best Serums of 2017 – The Ordinary Advanced Retinoid 2% and Buffet. I’ve gone through two of each of these and they work really well for my sensitive skin. Reviewed here and here.

Best Eye Cream / Serum of 2017 – The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG. This is the the only caffeine based eye serum that I’ve tried that doesn’t irritate my eyes. It works well for calming undereye puffiness. Review is here.

Best Toner of 2017 – The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution. Admittedly, I’ve not tried a lot of toners this year, but this one works well for my skin. I only use it a few times a week and not daily. Review is here.

Best Facial Oil of 2017 – Poetic Blend Ghost Oil. This came in a Petit Vour box, and I absolutely love it, especially now that we are in the midst of cold winter weather. Review is here.

Best in Bath and Body 2017

Best of 2017

Best in Body Care 2017 – Neal’s Yard Remedies Bee Lovely All Over Balm (PR Sample) and Satya Organic Eczema Relief. Both are amazing. Reviews are here and here.

Best in Lip Care 2017 – Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask and Joik Gloss and Care Lip Oil. I’m a lip balm addict and these two are the best! Review are here and here.

Best in Bath 2017 – Wildcraft Buff Scrub and Joik Luxurious Rose Bathmilk. This is the nicest body scrub, and it smells amazing. It says that it can be used on the face, but my facial skin is far too sensitive. I’m sad that I’ve used up the last of my Joik Rose Bathmilk – it was so lovely and the scent was glorious. Reviews here and here.

Best Hand Cream 2017 – Natura Siberica Saaremaa Mositurizing Hand Cream. I was gifted this while in Estonia, and it is such an amazing hand cream. I use it daily in the colder weather. Review is here.

Best in Hair Care 2017

Best of 2017

Best Hair Accessory 2017 – GummiBand Hair Cords (PR Sample). I’ve been using these daily since getting them. I have one on my wrist as I’m typing, haha! Review is here.

Best Hair Product 2017 – Briogeo Curl Charisma. Helps tame my unruly wavy hair and make it look good without being crunchy or heavy. Review is here.

Best Dry Shampoo 2017 –  Hask Chia Seed Volumizing Dry Shampoo. This was diffiuclt to choose between this one and my usual one from Co-Lab. I like that it doesn’t make my hair feel gross, or add a white cast and adds a nice amount of volume. Review is here.

Next week I’ll have by Top 17 of 2017 in makeup!

  1. Farmacy Beauty Green Clean Balm is on my list to try! It sounds like the kind of 1st step cleanser that I love.

    You got me curious about that Caffeine Solution – the only other eye cream I used with caffeine was from MAC and I like it a lot but of course, The Ordinary has it beat on price. 😉

    Looking forward to seeing your makeup list too!

  2. Ever since your first haul from The Ordinary, you seem to have had amazing results even with sensitive skin. Seeing so many of them appear on your best of 17 list really makes me feel like I’m missing out by continuously forgetting to pick up a few things. I think I’ll start with the eye cream and serum that you mentioned!!

  3. I’m excited that The Bay and Sephora have started carrying The Ordinary online now – hopefully that means I’ll be able to get my hands on some of their products a little easier (although they seem to be sold out on their sites too grrr). I can’t wait to try the Glycolic Acid toner and the Buffet serum.

    That Farmacy cleansing balm sounds awesome; I received a set of theirs for Christmas and have been using their Firming Night Balm and it’s amazing – so good for this dry Winter weather.

    1. I need to pick up a replacement Buffet and a few other things that I’d like to try, but I’m waiting for a re-stock of a few things…
      The cleansing balm is so so good. I want to try the firming night balm, and the facial mask!
