Hundreds of products grace the shelves at Skin1. And if you’re not in the Windy City and able to speak with one of our licensed estheticians, it can be a bit overwhelming deciding on a new moisturizer or toner to get started. So we asked our employees what product they cannot live without. Here’s what we had to say.
SkinMedica Total Defense & Repair Tinted Sunscreen
This is a MUST for me, especially in the summertime when a full face of makeup can be a nightmare. It is the most universal product in my arsenal because it provides an amazing amount of sun protection, while still giving that perfect, tinted glow. The best part? Its primary job is to repair damaged cells, so I know my skin is getting a full treatment service every time I use it. This 3-in-1 miracle gem is a slam dunk for everyone.

Kerstin Florian- FuB Balm
Summer can come with its share of aches and pains, whether it be from exercise or gardening. This wonderful multi-use gel can help sooth tired legs, feet, and muscles. It has a cooling effect that makes it absolutely refreshing for sore muscles in the middle of a hot summer day.
Eminence Bright Skin Overnight Correcting Cream
My favorite product is the Eminence Bright Skin Overnight Treatment. I will use it after applying my serum to damp skin and in the morning my skin looks brighter, luminous and hydrated.
Dr. Hauschka Regenerating Intensive Treatment
It’s great for skin that has lost its natural balance. Infused with gemstones of blue tourmaline, amber and gold, this magic mist keeps my pores and wrinkles smaller—keeping my skin looking young and fresh.
Glo Skin Beauty Balancing Mist
This mist is a great way to refresh my skin mid-day or when I feel like I need a moisture boost. It really feels like a burst of energy and helps mattify any oil on my skin throughout the day.
BareMinerals Complexion Rescue
Being a busy mom of three I need an easy makeup routine. I’m usually not a fan of liquid foundations but the Complexion Rescue is nice and light and dries fast! It’s a long-lasting foundation so no need to reapply. It really brightens up my skin and hides any imperfections I have.
-Sarah, Art Department
Phytomer XMF Perfection Youth Cream
This moisturizer has really helped with my fine lines. I also have rosacea and it is gentle enough for that.
-Marelyn, Customer Service Manager
Guinot Gommage Biologique
This exfoliating gel makes skin feel softer and look brighter instantly. I love the way the gel liquefies on my skin when it’s done doing its magic! Then I just rinse with warm water and follow with toner and moisturizer.
This brand is very good for sensitive skin and makes my skin feel very smooth.
-Arlene, Customer Service
HUM Nutrition Daily Cleanse
I hate routines, and getting me to incorporate a new moisturizer or cleanser into my day feels like a chore. But with Daily Cleanse, it’s as easy as taking a vitamin. After a month, I noticed drastic results. My skin is clearer and brighter.
