As an editor for VIVA GLAM, I am often introduced to new beauty brands from all over the world. The majority are simply following trends or latching onto Instagram-worthy packaging. But there are plenty of indie brands who produce note-worthy products that are affordable to the average consumer without sacrificing quality. Many of these brands have already become a part of my beauty routine so you can trust that you won’t be wasting your money. These are my favorite products of 2018…so far.
Whether you have dry skin, oily skin, combination skin, or normal skin, choosing your ideal face wash is the first step to having clear and healthy skin. In the colder months, I found cleansing oils worked best for me. But as soon as I ventured into warmer and more humid weather, cleansing gels became my savior.

The fragrance alone is enough to get you hooked. Inhaling a potpourri of green tea, pumpkin seed, lavender, frankincense, and a few more alluring ingredients is such a calming way to start or end your day.
