The Extras: 5 Skincare Products That Are Nice to Have but Not Necessary

When it comes to skincare, the beauty industry offers a plethora of products promising flawless skin. While some are undeniably essential, others fall into the category of "nice to have." These extras can certainly enhance your skincare routine, but they aren't crucial for everyone. Let's take a closer look at five such products:



**1. Makeup Primer

Makeup primers have gained popularity for their ability to create a smooth canvas for foundation, ensuring it stays put throughout the day. However, they're not a necessity, especially if you prefer a more natural look. A well-moisturized and properly prepped skin can often serve as an adequate base for your makeup. A good sunscreen gel can be used as a primer as well and highly recommended to prevent sun damage.


**2. Eyecream

Eye creams are often marketed as miracle workers for dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines around the eyes. While they can be soothing and luxurious, your regular facial moisturizer can also address these concerns.


**3. Cleansing Balm

Cleansing balms provide a spa-like experience for removing makeup and impurities. However, you can remove makeup using Coconut oil or Jojoba oil which costs less than most cleansing balm. One of the reasons why we discontinued our cleansing balm because we believe in skincare consistency and  being cost effective.


**4. Toner

Toners have been a staple in skincare routines for years. They claim to balance the skin's pH, tighten pores, and remove any lingering impurities. While they can be refreshing, modern cleansers are designed to maintain the skin's pH, and many people find that toners are an extra step that can be skipped.


5. Face Cleaning Devices

Facial brushes, cleansing tools, and gadgets have flooded the market, promising deep-cleaning and exfoliation. While these devices can offer a spa-like experience, they may not be necessary for everyone. Proper hand cleansing with a gentle cleanser can often suffice without the need for additional tools, not to mention the bacteria that gets trapped in the bristle.


In conclusion, skincare is a highly individual journey. While these products can add a touch of luxury and pampering to your routine, they're not obligatory for achieving healthy, radiant skin. The key to skincare success lies in understanding your unique skin type, concerns, and preferences, and tailoring your routine accordingly. So, go ahead and indulge in these extras if they bring you joy, but know that your skin can thrive without them too.
