If you answered mostly 1’s: The Beauty Rookie

Full days spent in class, part-time jobs, late nights of “studying,” and catching up on YouTube tutorials… why spend hours on your skincare routine when you can be out with friends instead? The Beauty Rookie knows it’s all about a pared down routine that let’s her spend less time at the vanity and more time exploring all of the things that she loves.

The Beauty Rookie’s Daily Routine:

  • Drift Away Cleanser: No matter what age, skincare starts with a cleansed face. Rinse the day off and get ready to bed with this double cleanse in a single step, saving you precious time that you can dedicate to binge watching Netflix.

  • Dive In Moisturizer: Moisturizing skin is key to keeping skin looking and feeling healthy, whether you’re getting a full 8-hours of sleep, or squeezing in disco naps.

  • Glow Ahead Illuminating Oil: Let’s be real: Skincare is even more fun when it’s selfie-worthy. Use this shimmering pink oil-serum to give skin instant luminosity with or without makeup.

  • Lift Off Purifying and Brightening Peel Off Mask: Your Sunday skincare routine is incomplete without a mask. Lift Off to better skin with this berry-infused peel off mask. Is there anything more satisfying? Use all over, or targeted on your T-zone.

If you answered mostly 2’s: The CE-Glow

Caffeine, concealer and a prayer - we’ve all been there! The nine-to-five grind is no joke, so The CE-GLOW needs a routine that gets her out the door in the AM, and feels like a relaxing ritual after a long day at her desk. She needs a streamlined routine that tackles her skin’s to-do list while she tackles her own!

The CE-GLOW’s Daily Routine:

  • Drift Away Cleanser: Think of clear skin as a clear schedule: It gives the rest of your routine the time it needs to get to work! This single-step cleanser will give you a double-cleansed effect, meaning that there’ll be no trace of makeup or debris left behind.

  • Layover Hydrating Ampoule: With 3 mega-hydrators (hyaluronic acid, beta-glucan, and birch juice), Layover delivers concentrated, yet lightweight, hydration, quenching your skin’s thirst without the heaviness of a thick cream.

  • Dive In Moisturizer: Seal the deal with a layer of Dive In. This lightweight moisturizer keeps skin hydrated for 72 hours. Use it in the AM to create the perfect canvas for makeup and in the PM for overnight moisturization.

  • Fast Lane Instant Facial: Who has time for a weekly (or even monthly!) facial? You’re hustling too hard to spend hours at a spa. That’s why Fast Lane Instant Facial is the perfect solution. Swap the spa for the comfort of your couch while you spend 15-20 minutes with this mask. With a powerful combo of AHA/BHAs, this is a facialist at your fingertips.

If you answered mostly 3’s: The Multitasking Mom

Multitasking takes on a whole new meaning when you become a mom - and often none of the plates you’re balancing have anything to do with you. But even if your usual multiple step beauty routine has taken the backseat to carpooling the kids, that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on your skincare.

The Multitasking Mom’s Daily Routine

  • Drift Away Cleanser: If there’s one skincare step you should never skip, it’s cleanser. Chasing your littles means working up a sweat, so make sure to cleanse AM and PM to wash away the day’s activities.

  • Hidden Glow Brightening Cream: We get it - you may want to skip a step in your routine to get out the door quicker. That’s why we created this moisturizer, which does double duty to moisturize while adding a subtle warm luminosity to skin.

  • Do Not Disturb Overnight Repair Concentrate: You may feel like the only break you get is while you’re sleeping, but in between the sheets is when this retinoid gets to work. While you snooze, Do Not Disturb does overtime to diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone and texture without the usual harshness of a retinoid.

  • BRB Multipolish: Did someone just say the kids scheduled a playdate at someone else’s house? While you have a little extra time to unwind, let BRB Multipolish’s 3-in-1 exfoliating formula reveal brighter skin on face, lips, and body.

If you answered mostly 4’s: The Wander Woman

Years of conquering the world, from your career, to traveling, to family and friends - your skin has seen it all. That’s why it’s all about choosing skincare multitaskers that are powered by do-it-all ingredients to keep you looking as youthful as you feel.

The Wander Woman’s Daily Routine

  • Drift Away Cleanser: Cleansing is key at any age, but finding a gentle, yet effective cleanser that doesn’t strip skin is key. Drift Away features coconut water to cleanse while hydrating skin. And did we mention it’s sulfate-free?

  • Layover Hydrating Ampoule: With more concentrated hydration than a serum, yet totally lightweight, Layover keeps skin plump. Its hydrating trifecta of hyaluronic acid, beta-glucan, and birch juice are like having your skin drink its 8 glasses of water each day.

  • Dive In Moisturizer: This gel-cream formula works day or night to deeply hydrate and moisturize. With 1% pentavitin, skin stays moisturized for 72 hours.

  • Do Not Disturb Overnight Repair Concentrate: This retinoid amps up skin’s natural renewal process, meaning it goes to work on fine lines, hyperpigmentation and scarring - but without the typical irritation of a retinoid. Use it overnight and wake up to healthier, more youthful skin.

  • BRB Multipolish: There’s nothing like a little pampering, especially in the comfort of your own home. When it’s time to unwind, grab a glass of wine and our 3-in-1 scrub that works to gently exfoliate face, lips and body.

If you answered mostly 5’s: The Wanderess

You’re always on the go. Whether it’s planes, trains or automobiles - there’s no containing your Wanderlust. You may be constantly repacking your bags for your next adventure, but don’t let these skincare picks leave your carryon.

The Wanderess’s Daily Routine

  • Baggage Claim Eye Masks: The easiest way to look refreshed when you land? Pop on a pair of Baggage Claim Eye Masks mid-flight. With hyaluronic acid and aloe leaf juice, you’ll look fresh, whatever timezone you land in.

  • Glow Ahead Face Oil: Traveling can wreak havoc on your skin - but that’s where Glow Ahead Face Oil comes in. This do-it-all oil is in a tube, making it totally travel-friendly. Plus, the spill-proof Wander Dropper ensures it’ll never leak in your bag.

  • Lip Retreat Oil in Oasis: The look of a gloss with the properties of a treatment, wear this clear lip oil on its own while you fly to keep lips hydrated, or layer over lipstick for a custom finish.
