You know that quote, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"? That's basically my mantra heading into the new year when it comes to my beauty routine. As much as I'd love to try every new product on the market, the task would be insurmountable, so I'm sticking to what I know. The list includes Youth to the People's Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream ($58) and Osea's Anti-Aging Body Balm ($54), which both keep my dry skin at bay, and cleaner makeup like Ilia's Daylite Highlight Powder ($34) and the Kosas Wet Lip Oil Gloss ($22), which keep me glowing all year long. I couldn't imagine leaving these products in 2022, so I'm headed to Nordstrom to do a major restock.
