The Best Skin Care of 2020!
aloha everyone welcome to skincare with hiram if you don’t know who i am my name is hiram and i’m passionate about teaching you how to perfect your skincare routine so make sure you and to the notification bell so that you can see my videos every single week oh we did it y’all we made it through 2020 well maybe i shouldn’t say that we still have a month left don’t jinx it hire him holy [ __ ] it has been a year that feels like five years 2020 has been a pretty shite year i think we can all agree on that i mean global pandemic the earth is dying murder hornets or whatever the [ __ ] you call them and this pimple-ass [ __ ] right here that won’t go away take it forever to go actually no it’s only been like two days i shouldn’t exaggerate but if i may say so myself there is one good thing about this year and that’s this video the best skincare 2020.
oh my god that was the definition the child poster of tooting my own horn if you haven’t followed me since 2019 last year i did my best skincare of 2019 video and it was awesome because i was just able to figure out all of the skincare products that i absolutely loved and wanted to share with you guys the best of the best and if there’s one thing i love on my channel it’s making good product recommendations because i always want you guys to have access to the best products out there without having to go through all the [ __ ] of trying so many different products and while yes this video is a culmination of all of my favorites i am taking it a bit further this year and doing different segmented videos of my best cleansers my best serums my best moisturizers and my best sunscreens of 2020.
because truthfully guys there is no funny way i could fit all of my favorite products into one single video that is ninja work that i am not capable of there’s just too many so i have to make them in different videos so after this video make sure you subscribe i mean that’s only if you haven’t subscribed already you dirty dog because i will be posting over the next few weeks all of my best of 2020 videos but in this video we’re going to be focusing on the best of the best the gucci of the gucci actually can we decide a different brand name to focus on i’m tired of acquainting gucci with cool when i’m not even a big fan of their clothes can we do like alexander mcqueen balm the bomb here i am acting like i’m cultured in fashion when i literally wear blue shirts every day stay in your place hyrum also all the products i’m talking about in today’s video are listed in the description box below if you do want to support me in my channel i would really appreciate it if you shop from those links because i do make a small commission if you guys only knew how much [ __ ] my skin has been through from trying so many products this year to give you guys the best recommendations you’d be a little horrified but if you can feel free to shop from those but again as always no pressure it’s totally cool okay so i’m looking at this list and honestly because there are so many products i’m not gonna be able to get into like the ingredient list or super detailed about every product i’m just gonna go one after one after one honestly these come up in my videos so often that if you want to you can totally find me talking about these products in other videos in more detail and also i apologize i’m not in my normal filming location therefore i do not have access to my normal skin care products so i won’t be able to show them on camera but guaranteed i’ve been through multiple bottles of each of these products some of these products i’m on like my tenth bottle so the love and addiction is real and stay tuned because in these videos i like to throw in a few surprise products that i really haven’t talked about on my channel before that i’ve been loving over the course of this year all right let’s start i’m so excited these are my favorite videos ever so first the best cleansers of 2020 in no particular order one of them is the inkula salicylic acid cleanser this one on my tic tac on my youtube channel i’m constantly talking about because i think it’s a great cleanser for getting the active ingredient salicylic acid into your skin without leaving it on too long or increasing sensitivity or having an over stripping experience i love the inky list just because they’re super affordable with really well-rounded formulas and this one is no different it’s a great experience the only thing i don’t like about it is that it’s always out of stock but that’s okay hopefully by this video they will have some stock because that [ __ ] sells out like that one that i’ve recently fallen in love with this year and has become one of my favorite cleansers of all time the herbivore pink cloud jelly cleanser this cleanser just completely took me by surprise i was totally expecting overly fragrance do nothing cleanser and it is actually incredible for deeply cleansing the skin but without overly stripping it but more so for people i’d say with normal to dry skin i love to use this one in the morning when i need a cleanse but i don’t need a harsh cleanse or an intense deep cleansing experience because i’m only removing my skincare products from the night before and at least your skin’s so soft and hydrated it is a lovely experience and i think i’ve already been through three or four bottles and i only discovered it like five months ago yeah the love is real of course it could not be a best of video without my classic cleanser the youth of the people kale and green tea cleanser i mean i literally won’t shut the [ __ ] up about this product in every single one of my videos to the point that you guys are like hire them stop already that’s really annoying oh can you tell i’m hyper this morning i mean it just continues to rain as one of the best cleansers out there if not my favorite skincare product in existence because it has this incredible ability of just deeply cleansing your pores without overly stripping it but in a way that when you get out of the shower and you look at your skin you’re like holy [ __ ] my skin looks incredible and this product specifically by far is the number one product that you guys when you come up to me in person or when you’re commenting say changed your life it is amazing it is also almost always out of stock but i think they also recently got stock in for the holidays so go at it and then finally the cerave salicylic acid renewing cleanser this one was featured on my tic tocs and all over my channel and really when cereal started to get super popular it’s a good gentle salicylic acid cleanser i’d say it’s a little less strong than the inky list one and it features a pha so it’s just a good cleanser for mild exfoliation but it’s very very gentle and honestly out of all the celery cleansers definitely my top pick from this year it’s hard to only choose four products damn next up is serums or treatments these are the products that really work well for getting rid of issues within your skin and trust mama has had issues with their skin this year and i found all of these were just included is that how you say in french the only class i’ve ever failed so much for the romance language first up is the classic crave beauty the great barrier relief honestly guys i cannot sing enough praises to this product this is one of the best products in existence it is incredible for really making sure that your moisture barrier is protected and every time my skin’s going through it whether it be sensitivity breakouts redness irritation lack of moisture over oiliness whatever it is every single time i use this product overnight my skin is just like whoa it’s one of the most noticeable differences and has an incredible ingredient list this product specifically i think i’m on my 9th or 10th bottle i know i featured it in last year’s video but that’s just how incredible this product is it is truly amazing i find from this year is the i unique tea tree relief serum this serum is like magic because first of all it absorbs instantly into the skin it’s one of those serums that feels like absolutely nothing is there once you apply it to your skin it’s just like whoa where did it go i don’t feel it which is great because this serum is particularly aimed at people who have more breakout oily acne prone skin the ingredients like niacinamide and tea tree extract are great for reducing oiliness and making sure your skin’s not really greasy but a lot of times the problems i find with serums even for oily skin out there is that they can be a little bit heavy on the skin and i love how lightweight fast absorbing this texture is korean skincare it’s super affordable great great product another one in this list is the inky list pha toner i love this product because it was really my first introduction to phas on the market phas are polyhydroxy acids they’re similar to ingredients like glycolic acid and lactic acid they work just as well but they have a lot less risk of sensitivity and irritation which is great considering that i do get sensitive to glycolic acid sometimes and i feel like a lot of us out there we just go way too hard with the exfoliation and this product is so gentle but so good at exfoliating the skin without being overly harsh it is it’s great i love it and then finally the polish choice two percent bha solution this product i always say it’s like magic in a bottle i swear to god and i remember when i first got this and i decided to use it on my nose where i was struggling with breakouts and when i woke up in the morning my pores physically look smaller which that’s anatomically impossible so i don’t even know how the [ __ ] it happened but every time i use this product my pores literally look like they’ve shrunk it’s so trippy and you need to use barely any and that’s honestly why i recommend this product to the majority of people who struggle with breakouts and acne because you’re utilizing the benefit of salicylic acid but as opposed to a small spot treatment or a mask you’re getting it in the highest concentration in the solution that lasts forever amazing product can’t say enough phrases to it if you struggle with breakouts acne or oily skin you definitely need to get this one it’s amazing ugh finding four serums or treatments to choose from was so hard i think that was the hardest to choose from out of all of these there’s so many good ones stay tuned for the best serums of 20 20 video that one well i mean all of them are so good oh and one thought i also had guys please when it comes to any kind of shopping whether you’re shopping for my videos anyone else’s videos or just caving into the holiday peer pressure of shopping please especially to see your shop responsibly it’s okay that you don’t get 10 skincare products you don’t even need to get a full skincare routine just get whatever you need or whatever person in your life you want to get a gift for needs i really like to base my entire channel on minimalism so by no means is this video saying go out and buy every single product that i’m talking about go crazy please feel free to shop responsibly i mean this year has shown us how important the necessities are and skin care is never worth putting yourself at financial risk next up is moisturizer one i find from this year that i integrated into my routine and didn’t even realize how obsessed i had become with it is the skin fix liquid peptide cream this is a nice thick rich heavy moisturizer that i like to use overnight to prevent trans epidermal water loss and address multiple types of damage within my skin every time i woke up after using this my skin was so plump hydrated soft it has a great really effective and high quality ingredient list i love using it at night and if you’re someone who has dry or eczema prone skin this is a great product to go with because of its richness and ability to really deeply moisturize the skin next is the classic i believe i featured in last year’s video too the first day dd coconut water cream this continues to be one of the best moisturizers i’ve used of all time and still is one of the only moisturizers that upholds itself in the hot humid summer months it immediately absorbs into the skin gives this nice blurring effect to the skin almost i always get compliments when i use this moisturizer and it’s such a nice experience and i love recommending this one because there’s so many people i know out there who think they hate using moisturizers because they’re used to the heavier creams and i’m like oh no no try this one out and as soon as i introduce them to it they become obsessed just like me and it’s just such a good product i love it relatively recent fine but one that i absolutely fell in love with is the rovecting clean lotus water cream this one similarly to the first day beauty one is a lightweight gel cream i say it provides a tiny bit more moisture than the coconut water cream the reason i love this one is because of the insanely high concentration of lotus extract lotus is a great antioxidant and skin soothing agent and it’s a really affordable korean moisturizer that works super well during the summer as well this one gives that ever so slight doing this just very very minimal but still feels like nothing on the skin it’s a great formula and then finally another one that i featured in last year’s video it’s so hard with moisturizers i am so damn picky when it comes to moisturizers and i typically like to go with my ride or dies just because i don’t know these ones are so good it’s the use of the people adoption and cream i have gotten so many gifts for whether it be friends or creators i like to give people skincare routines i guess it’s my love language and this is 90 of the time the moisturizer that i include the reason being it has this insane ability to deeply hydrate the skin but still at a consistency that works for almost every single skin type the only people i would say are excluded from using this moisturizer are people with really really really oily skin or really really really dry skin because the actual consistency is this super lightweight cream but when you apply it to your skin you’re like wow it definitely hydrates and moisturizes the skin but even for my oily skin and combination skin i love using this well not in the summer months but i love using this one because it always feels so nice and it never feels heavy but it really does moisturize my skin well also this is always the moisturizer that i turn to whenever my skin is going through it if i’m having irritation from using too many products if i’m going through breakouts if i’m having sensitivity and redness it’s pretty much guaranteed that i’m going to turn to this moisturizer because it always manages to get my skin on track typically when my skin is really going through it i use this one during the day and i use the skin fix one at night kind of like the skin fix one these are kind of expensive i mean they’re definitely not cheap but this video is all about the best products that i found and i’m definitely willing to pay for a good product within reason i mean not going crazy but really high quality ingredients do cost a lot of money so i’m fine paying you know fifty dollars for a moisturizer but of course if you’re looking for moisturizers on a budget stay tuned for my best moisturizers of 2020 video because i definitely include some in that video next up sunscreen this was definitely the year of trying out sunscreens i really pushed myself this year to try out as many sunscreen formulas as possible specifically mineral sunscreens and it was a challenge but i think i’ve finally settled on all my favorites and these four i love first is the first day beauty mineral sheer tent spf 30.
this one is just an incredible formula the reason why is that it goes against every conventional mineral sunscreen out there with the reputation of being really heavy on the skin this one has such a light consistency that feels like nothing on the skin and works so well if you have more oilier skin or if you just don’t want to feel like a sunscreen is there it also has this tint that works to slightly correct any like redness in the skin and just to offset any white cast that you could see in a sunscreen i love this one because i never have to worry about a white cast ever and it works for so many skin tones like i know a lot of people who have really dark skin tones who absolutely love this sunscreen finding a mineral sunscreen that works for a large variety of skin tones is almost impossible the only people i would say are excluded from the sunscreen are people with really fair skin or people with the darkest skin tone which is why i would recommend a korean sunscreen which stay tuned but i’m truly impressed by its ability to work for so many different skin tones and it’s definitely one of the best usa formulas i’ve ever found next is one of the korean sunscreens that again i won’t shut up about and it may have been featured in last year’s video too do you notice that i’m a little bit consistent with my recommendations ugh i mean you only have to watch five of my videos to see that even though i try so many products out there i still come back to like the same five recommendations i’m a taurus what can i say if i find a product that i absolutely love i will ride or die that [ __ ] until the day i die the love is real it is the dear claire soft uvari essence spf 50.
this one while providing the highest level of protection possible you can get from a sunscreen has this insane lightweight texture to it that feels like truly absolutely nothing on the skin once you apply it on your skin you don’t feel anything at all it feels like not even a moisturizer because you can even feel a moisturizer on the skin this truly feels like nothing and this is the only sunscreen on this list i would say where i can apply it five six times throughout the day layering upon layering and i don’t feel anything that’s seriously how lightweight it is it is so incredibly deceiving but in the best way possible i absolutely love this sunscreen and i always recommend it to people who have more oily skin but honestly anyone who doesn’t want to feel like they have a sunscreen on their face this is the product to go with and the bottle is actually pretty big it lasts a while it’s oh it’s just an incredible product i cannot use this one enough it does have one fragrant essential oil but i say this all the time literally sunscreen is the most important step of your skincare routine and reapplication is also important so i justify it because this is literally one of the only sunscreens where when i’m getting continued sun exposure throughout the day i know i can reapply it without any problem next is a relatively recent find but honestly i found myself turning into this one a lot because my skin i think for two months was kind of it was honestly really going through it my skin was always red it was pretty irritated i just really wasn’t happy because i was trying so many different products and i really wasn’t able to stick to a consistent routine i don’t know i feel a lot of pressure to like find as many product recommendations for you guys as possible not from you guys of course i put that pressure on myself but it’s a sunburn mineral tinted spf 30 sunscreen i loved using this one because it does have a tint to it that really works to conceal redness it’s not a tinted moisturizer or anything like that it only has a slight tint but when applied to the skin it actually it feels really nice first of all it almost feels like a primer but it has this slight corrective nature to reduce the appearance of redness and irritation and it was really great because when i film my videos for some reason my phone or the lighting for some reason makes my skin look way more red than what it looks like in person so sometimes when i’d use this sunscreen it helped to kind of like minimize that redness so i wasn’t looking like a tomato every time i filmed but just in general this one wasn’t one that i expected to be using every single day but a few months in found that i’d use the entire bottle and i was like oh i use that every single day that’s how much i enjoyed it it’s a great product and definitely good for a sunscreen that won’t give you a white cast nature although i will say this one is definitely more meant for lighter skin tones but i believe sunburn has darker skin tones as well like i said before if you have a dark skin tone first off just use the korean sunscreen recommendations that i make or go watch my video about all the best sunscreens for darker skin tones because i gave all my favorites there and then finally for sunscreens i mean i would be the biggest hypocrite in the world if i didn’t feature this one the purito unscented cintella spf 50.
this one like the deer colors one is a korean sunscreen it has absolutely no white cast whatsoever it feels like a lightweight moisturizer that really does soothe the skin it’s oh it’s amazing i absolutely love it similar to the adapting cream that i’m always sending people i find myself sending this one to everyone because i know once they use it everyone’s going to be like oh my god this is incredible and i’m like yeah it’s so good i can’t sing enough praises to it it’s from a brand that i love and yeah it’s just great and then here’s a section you guys may have not expected that i have two products in because i just have to mention these because they’re truly revolutionary this year eye creams i know i know i always say an eye cream isn’t necessary but that doesn’t mean that i don’t enjoy using an eye cream that i don’t love sometimes including it into my skincare routine the first one is the first day beauty niacinamide eye cream what can i say it is literally the best eye cream in existence it is so good i find myself using it every single day because sometimes i do struggle with dark circles from hello not getting enough sleep i know it’s bad but hey it’s bad i really should get more sleep but the challenge is that i hate using concealers they never look natural on my under eye area they don’t blend in well i just i haven’t found a concealer that i absolutely love but eye creams on their own don’t do anything to kind of like distract from those dark circles and this product is the perfect intersection between makeup and skin care it has a slight tint to it that offsets those dark circles while still utilizing the amazing benefits of niacinamide to help brighten that area it’s great i love it the product lasts forever it’s amazeballs and then one that i haven’t talked about but i have been really really loving recently the verse to brightening eye cream this one really came in clutch for brightening my dark circles so i recently have definitely not been getting enough sleep that is very much certain every time that happens i’ve been pulling sony all nighters like back-to-back all-nighters and everything just for work and over the past few months of using this product i’m like oh boy here come the dark circles because they always come whenever i pull a bunch of all-nighters and they never really came like they never got that bad in comparison to how bad they usually are and the only thing i changed for using on my under eye area was this burst brightening eye cream well it’s like a gel it’s not a cream it’s amazing i highly recommend it the ingredients are great it’s at the drugstore awesome product and then finally we have three products that really didn’t fit into any of these categories but i have to mention because they were that amazing but then i met you cleansing balm ugh it is amazing this is the cleansing balm i always turn to whenever i want to remove sunscreen and remove all the sea of them and pollution from my face it feels like a mango smoothie on the skin it’s just incredible i cannot sing enough phrases to it it’s definitely pricey but oh my god incredible so i’m from honey mask this one kind of redefined hydrating face mask for me i’m typically not a person who likes hydrating face masks i feel like me with oily skin i don’t need it but this one has the most luxurious texture and feels amazing on the skin it has a crazy high concentration of honey and other beneficial ingredients that work for you whether you have really dry eczema flaky skin or if you’re struggling with fungal acne breakouts different problems like that it treats so many different types of issues and feels amazing on the skin so so soft afterwards and those are all the products what do we think y’all was that too much that might have been a little too much i know there’s so many products in this video but seriously this doesn’t even compare to the amount of products i’m going to be talking about in my other videos because that’s how many good life-changing incredible ones there are there are just so many incredible life-changing products that i have to talk about and i’m so glad you guys came and watched this video like i said before if you are interested in purchasing any of these feel free to use the links down below if you want to support me and my channel i would really appreciate it and of course because i’m going to be trying new products out for the next year please comment your favorite products that you use whether they be on this list or whether they be completely different the products that change your skin change your life i want to know about them so please comment them down below and lastly i want to say even though i’m late to a meeting thank you guys so much for an incredible 2020.
i know it’s been it has been a really difficult year it’s it’s there’s been so many challenges i i know for me personally there’s been so many incredible moments um my channel was really able to grow and i i was able to see so much opportunity and that’s something i don’t really want to talk about because like i said it has been a very difficult year and i’m so so fortunate and so lucky to be in the position where i am because even if i was just where i was last year i would have been out of a job this entire year but i just really want to say thank you guys so much for the amazing support this year you guys have just been so incredible i love you so much and i just can’t stop saying thank you just thank you guys so much i really really appreciate all the love and support you’ve showed me this whole year hopefully 2021 will be such a better year for us all and if you haven’t already be sure to and hit the notification bell so that you can see my videos every single week and i’ll see you guys in the next one
