We have been in full-blown spring cleaning mode around here! Something about sunshine and longer days makes me want to declutter and start fresh for a new season. This isn’t just for closets and cabinets, though!! I’ve been really focusing on skincare since last year, and have nailed down a solid skincare routine. Today, I am sharing my morning skincare routine with you!!
My morning skincare routine
cleanser // toner pads // eye cream // serum // moisturizer // vitamin c serum // lip gloss // glow balm
Discovering TULA’s cleanser is what really got me to start washing my face. My skincare routine in college was non-existant, and then having 2 kids in 2 years really does a number on your skin. TULA’s cleanser is gentle on my skin, but tough on pores. I love how fresh and clean my face feels after I’ve used it!

After I’ve cleansed my face, I use one of my FAB Facial Radiance Pads. I got a pack of 5 of these free with a Sephora order years ago, and immediately placed another order for more. This is the one product I have used for nearly a decade, and haven’t found anything to compare. Holy grail product alert. Life-changing. Not a hyperbole, guys! These pads gently tone and exfoliate my skin. Some toners can sting or even burn a bit, but not these!
For serums, I rotate between COOLA’s Vital Rush Serum and TULA’s Vitamin C Serum, depending on season and my skin’s “issues” at the time. In the winter, my skin is dry and generally irritated, sometimes causing redness. The Vitamin C Serum has been a crucial step in my morning skincare routine all winter, because it calms my skin! This serum actually strengthens your skin’s natural barrier, vs just covering any unwanted redness up.
In the summer, I use COOLA’s Vital Rush Serum pretty religiously. It feels amazing on my face, instantly cooled. It hydrates and helps even out my complexion. COOLA has a great lineup of skincare products, learn more here.
After I use my serum, I go in with my eye cream. I do rotate a few of these as well. I use one from Beauty Bio (generally at night), and COOLA also has an amazing eye cream duo (though, again, I typically use it at night). My daytime eye cream is from First Aid Beauty, and it smells like fresh cucumbers! Something about the scent is super energizing, and helps me wake up — and it helps wake up the skin around my eyes! This cream contains hyaluronic acid, so it helps to smooth the appearance of fine lines and eye bags — making it a crucial part of my morning skincare routine.
Then, it’s time to moisturize! Again, I do use a few different moisturizers throughout the year, but lately, I have been reaching for my Protect and Plump moisturizer from TULA. My face literally drinks this up. It gives a nice, healthy glow, and my face feels hydrated all day!
I finish off my look with a few sweeps of my Rose Glow Eye Balm. Pro tip: I rub the tube between my palms to warm it up a bit before applying. This helps it blend a bit easier. Add a sweep of my go-to lip gloss, and I am ready for the day!
