There's different collections to tackle all sorts of skin types; and I got almost 1 item from each range to try. I really wish I could try it all! Have you used Botanics yet? Here's what I've been using so far:

An exfoliant is a must to clear away dull and dead skin cells and make way for fresh and radiant skin. I use this scrub about once every 1-1.5 weeks because it is a much coarser exfoliant than I'm use to.

Sunscreen is so important! I don't always realize when my skin, especially my face is exposed to the sun, so I've made it a point to incorporate sun protection in my daily skincare and makeup routine. I use this day cream sunscreen with out without makeup; it's lightweight and easy to apply.
