Ahead, Julianne Goldmark shares her favorite products for Glamour‘s Drop the Routine.
My cleanser is Avènes Gentle Face Wash. I love it because it’s scent-free. It’s superlight. It’s clean and gets everything off your face, but it doesn’t strip your skin. That’s my day-to-day, morning, and night face wash. If I’m taking my makeup off, though, I love the Farmacy Green Clean Cleansing Bomb. I do that before the face wash.
The only serum I use is Biba Serum. I usually use it with my face still wet so that I use a little bit less and it still keeps my face moisturized. My dermatologist always tells me not to wipe my face off after I’m done washing it all the way. It helps the products absorb better. I always put the tiniest bit on my face while it’s still wet.
I’ve been using a CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion or the Avène Soothing Tolerance Cream. That’s if I’m feeling a little bit drier, but those are really the only ones that don’t irritate my skin or break me out. The Avène one works really well under makeup. I would say the CeraVe Oil Free Lightweight Moisturizer I use more at nighttime, but I love the Avène one for under makeup.
My eye cream
I use Summer Fridays for my eyes. It’s not too thick, but it’s not too lightweight, which is really nice. It’s the perfect everyday eye cream.
My face mask
I don’t use face masks. That falls under “I bought so many and they didn’t do anything for me.” The only one I do occasionally is the Caudalie Clay Mask. And that’s if I’m really feeling my skin is clogged, but for the most part they just don’t do well with my skin.
My spot treatment
I use Bibas The Zinc Mask. It’s meant to be a mask, but I just take a little Q-tip and use it as a spot treatment. It’s magic. It literally will go away overnight.
I don’t use any retinols. The only thing close to retinol that I’ve used is A313; it’s a French pharmacy retinol, which I really actually loved, but it also ended up being harsh for my skin.
My face mist
I use the Avene Thermal Spring Water because it’s just water. It really is nice to set my makeup and also give it added hydration without any scents or anything like that.
If I’m not wearing makeup, I use EltaMD, the one for acne-prone skin. I also use the Ilia Skin Tint with SPF. It’s the only SPF foundation that doesn’t break me out. It gives the most amazing glow. Every time I wear it, people ask me what I have on my skin. The Ilia skin tint is my number one. It’s definitely on the dewier side. Sometimes I’ll do that and then use the tiniest bit of powder on my T-zone.
My lip balm
I’m in love with the Rhode Peptide Lip Treatment. I’m so picky when it comes to lip balms; anything that’s sticky or too thick, I hate the texture on my lips. I have the salted caramel one. I’ve been using it for the last two weeks and definitely see a difference. It’s the only one that I’ve tried in a long time that I really love. Sometimes I use the Laneige Lip Mask treatment.
My skin-care devices
I use LightStim if I have any breakouts and then I use NuFace. I got NuFace for Christmas and didn’t use it, but I just started using it in the last couple of weeks and am obsessed. It honestly really works. You have to just be consistent with it, which is annoying. But if you do it before bed or while you’re watching TV, it’s easier.
My body care
I love First Aid Beauty’s body moisturizer and their body scrub. It’s amazing. That’s another brand that’s super underrated and I feel everything they make is clean and simple. I also love anything from Farmacy right now. All of their products have been agreeing with my skin. They also make a really amazing honey-centered body butter or body lotion. It’s the best thing ever.
