When I started using anti-aging products in my 20s, before a single wrinkle had appeared, I did it all wrong. I purchased products for mature skin believing that the extra-strength would be extra-effective in preventing aging but instead I burned myself with retinoids and peels and caused break out after break out with deep moisturizing creams and night masks. At around age 30, I made a switch to natural skincare and my skin started improving. Now in my late thirties, I’ve found a routine that works and although my skin isn’t perfect, I never could have believed it would look this healthy at my age.

That’s me on the left at 27 and me on the right at age 37, earlier this year!

I organized all my favorite vegan skincare products in my Amazon Store if you’d like to check out the full list but I figured I’d share a more condensed list of the current products in my daily and weekly routine here. Included are cleansers, moisturizers and products that target signs of aging like wrinkles, sagging, puffiness and redness.

All of the items listed below are cruelty-free and made with vegan ingredients. I love them all and think you will too!


1. Andalou Naturals “1000 Roses” Cleansing Foam
This foaming face wash with rose stem cells is perfect for sensitive skin. I’ve used this product for years and love its subtle smell rose and how it leaves my skin feeling soft- not stripped.

2. Andalou Naturals “1000 Roses” Floral Toner Spray
I use this spray with rose stem cells on my face after cleaning and before applying face or eye cream. In addition to the soothing rosewater, it is made with pomegranate, hyaluronic acid & aloe vera to moisturize, uplift and tone skin. I discovered it several years ago and have used it almost every day since!

3. The Body Shop “Drops of Youth” Youth Concentrate

This is the most effective anti-aging product I have ever used! There is no sting or feeling of a peel when you use them but you can immediately see the results. Fine lines are diminished and they leave your face looking firm and glowing. I use them once or twice a week.

13. The Body Shop Youth Concentrate Sheet Mask
This mask rejuvenates skin in 15 minutes with 3 types of plant stem cells! I discovered this product last winter when my face was feeling extremely dehydrated and it saved my skin after just one use! Tip: I’ve found that there is always extra serum left behind in the packaging after applying the mask. Make sure to use this serum on your neck, elbows and knees!

14. Sunday Riley Juno Antioxidant and Superfood Face Oil
I love using this facial oil to massage my face with Gua Sha massage stones (see below!). The oil is formulated with antioxidants, vitamins, essential amino acids, Omegas 3-6-9 and skin soothing botanicals. Just a few drops immediately hydrates and feels so luxurious on your face!

15. Rose Quartz Gua Sha Face Massaging Stones
Gua sha is a traditional Chinese healing technique that involves scraping with massage tools to promote better circulation and drainage of fluids that cause puffiness in the face and neck. I use a few drops of the Sunday Riley Juno oil (above) with this rose quartz set to massage my face and neck and it definitely helps reduce puffiness around my eyes and jawline. It also feels amazing!
