Keep reading for our guide on how to use our space, energy, and time-saving products to simplify your skincare routine!

The Bare Minimum

If you only have time for one step in your daily skincare routine, washing your face is the one of the easiest steps for healthy skin. Washing your face at the end of the day removes all of the dirt, grease, leftover makeup, and air pollutants you have come in contact with throughout the day. In addition, washing your face in the morning cleanses your skin from any sweat or bacteria found on your pillow and protects your skin's delicate surface from whatever it may come in contact with the rest of the day.
It may be popular to have multiple steps, but your skincare routine shouldn't add extra stress to your already busy schedule. 

Consistency is also vital when washing your face in your skincare routine, no matter how minimal and efficient your routine may be. Washing your face supports smoother, more youthful-looking skin and contributes to the overall healthier skin, whether you wear makeup or not. In addition, sticking to your skincare routine of washing your face ensures the bacteria and dirt buildup doesn't stick around.

Minimal Beauty – Three Timesaving Products for an Easy-No Fuss Face

You're busy. We understand that.

The good news: you don't need to spend more than a few minutes a day on your skincare routine to support a consistently glowing, more youthful-looking complexion. Your skincare routine should be simple and efficient with multi-functional products that do more so you can too.

We have the solution!

Our three-pack Skin-Sentials set includes a cleanser, toner, and double-sided mittens that function both as a gentle microfiber cleanse and as an exfoliant. We've simplified a 7-step routine into just three simple products! All of which come in a TSA-friendly clear cosmetic bag. These three efficient products replace your makeup remover, cleanser, exfoliator, toner, serum, and moisturizer!

So, how does it work?

1. Cleanse Your Face

First, start with a gentle cleanse using our all-in-one cleansing stick. We know how tempting it is after a long day to want to skip our nightly skincare routine, but the health of your skin depends on removing all the dirt buildup from the day. It doesn't have to take too long; just a gentle cleanse or two if you wear makeup.

Our all-in-one cleansing stick cleanses the skin and doubles as a moisturizer, which is perfect for simplifying your beauty routine and leaving you with clean, healthy skin. 

We also know how time-consuming it can be to find TSA-approved containers to pack all of your daily beauty products in when traveling. That is why everything in our Skin-Sentials set already comes in convenient travel-friendly size containers. As well as a TSA-approved clear cosmetic bag to keep everything organized and ready to go!

2. Toner to the Rescue

After cleansing, using a toner helps your skin's appearance by cooling down your skin, reducing pore size, and removing excess oil or environmental impurities. Our Cool It green tea toner stick is perfect for every skin type. Yes, even sensitive skin! It is often an underestimated step in daily skincare routines, but it is crucial in supporting the ability to calm and hydrate the skin after every cleanse.

Our high-quality toner helps you maintain a clearer, hydrated, more radiant complexion while its compact, space-saving design is perfect for on the go.

The best part?

Our toner stick doesn't require any additional products to apply, such as a cotton ball or reusable cotton round, so it's perfect for quick and easy use. Leaving you with more product because it is not your typical water based formula. In addition, it comes in a TSA-friendly size stick, so there's no mess when trying to transfer to a smaller bottle when you're ready to go.

3. Double-Sided Cleansing Mitts: The Practical Solution

The double-sided cleansing mitts make your face cleansing routine gentle to your skin and completely hassle-free.

This final product in our 3-pack Skin-Sentials set is made from durable, long-lasting, eco-friendly material, making the double-sided mitts perfect for on-the-go cleansing. One side is the microfiber cleansing side for everyday use, and the other is the exfoliant side for a deeper cleanse once a week or whatever you find best for your skin.

The best part is you never have to worry about misplacing one of them because they both fit in an eco-friendly, machine-washable bag.

Exfoliate Once a Week or Less

Simplify your routine even more by doing your extra beauty routine steps less!

Exfoliating your skin is an essential step to removing any extra dead skin or any rough areas of skin, and any time you feel as though your face needs an extra deep cleanse. Consistent exfoliation brightens the skin and calms your complexion for supple-looking skin when used correctly. 

Exfoliating once or twice a week is best for most skin types because it reduces the risk of damaging your skin barrier. However, suppose you live in arid climates or are consistently in the sun, you could even exfoliate every couple of weeks to prevent the skin from becoming too dry, and it will reduce the possibility of redness.

It is possible to have too much of a good thing. For example, it can be tempting to exfoliate several times a week because it feels refreshing, and your skin feels smooth. However, try to resist the temptation to over-exfoliate because too much exfoliation can cause skin damage.

Everyone Is Unique

Everyone's skin is unique, and so is their skincare routine. What works for other people's skin might not work for you. Maybe you just need to wash your face once a day instead of twice a day. Perhaps you found that exfoliating doesn't work for you unless you do it twice a week.

That's okay! Everyone's skin has its own natural balance, and through trial and error, you can see what is best for you. 

Simplifying your skincare routine shouldn't require extra time and energy, which is why we have only included the most essential, multi-functional products to get you where you need to go. Our product line's practical, clean, and compact design helps cut down on your skincare care routine and uses the minimalist approach when it comes to your skin.

Invest in Yourself

Investing in yourself with time-saving, space-saving, and sanity-saving skincare products. Your skin, and your wallet, will benefit from simplifying your skincare routine and only using the products that will be the most beneficial for you in the long run.

Then, through your own research, find the products that you believe will be best for you. You don't need a twenty-step beauty routine to feel and look your best, just a few high-quality products that will leave you with smooth, fresh skin.

Investing in our 3-pack skin-sentials set, you will be well on your way to clear, healthy, hydrated skin without the hassle and headache of multiple steps with products you don't actually need. The best part about a minimalist approach to skincare is the freedom you now have to devote more of your time and energy to your goals.

A Few Extra Ways to Simplify

There are a few other simple, practical ways to invest in your skincare routine that are affordable and minimal. These include regularly washing your pillowcases and anything else that comes in regular contact with your face.

For example, periodically washing pillowcases reduces the number of germs and bacteria that your skin comes in contact with, resulting in a reduced chance of the possibility of your skin breaking out. Cellphones and now our face masks are a few other items that need to be regularly cleaned and washed to help keep your skin clean and your routine efficient.

Regularly washing your cleansing gloves is also an easy, simple step in maintaining a minimal beauty routine. A good rule of thumb is to wash your cleansing gloves as often as wash your other hand towels and washcloths. Our cleansing gloves come in a convenient, eco-friendly, machine-washable bag that makes it easy to wash and keep track of both cleansing gloves.

When time allows, you could treat yourself to a spa day! An occasional day getting pampered by the professionals is a rewarding way to spend your time and money. Saving up and getting a facial every so often is a relaxing experience that you deserve.


In order to effectively simplify your daily skincare routine, you need to find the right multi-functional products for you and, through trial and error, discover when and how often works best for your unique skin. Remember, if you only have time for one step in your beauty routine, washing your face is the one to keep. It effectively removes all of the dirt and grime you’ve come in contact with during the day.

Our 3-step Skin-Sentials set, including cleansing, toning, and exfoliating with our double-sided cleansing mitts, simplifies your beauty routine from seven products to three compact, multi-functional time-saving skincare essentials. Exfoliating is an easy addition to your skincare routine but keep it to a minimum. Once or twice a week is sufficient
