natural beauty buff | cecilia wong, cecilia wong skincare

One of the best parts of my freelance beauty editing gig is testing new, niche products that hit the market. One of my favorite new lines is Cecilia Wong Skincare, a holistic collection with a small but mighty lineup of good-for-you products.

Created by Hong Kong-born, New York/New Jersey-raised skincare expert Cecilia Wong, this line reflects Cecilia’s belief in a clean beauty regimen that harnesses the power of organic ingredients. You won’t find parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals or artificial colors in her pared-down line of superb products. What you will find are organic herbs, oils, seeds and botanical blends that smooth, brighten and firm the skin, leaving you glowing.

Cecilia and I connected so I could find out a little more about what she uses to achieve a radiant appearance. Here’s a peek at what she keeps in the travel kit inside her Gucci Sukey purse as well as in her bathroom vanity area. (The items I’ve starred indicate items I also use and love as well.)

Inside Cecilia’s Purse

*Cecilia Wong Skincare Rejuvenating Toner Mist

“My Rejuvenating Toner Mist hydrates and cleanses my skin throughout the day. I have acne-prone skin and since the toner was designed with probiotics, it kills all bacteria on the skin. I carry it in my handbag and also have one in my bathroom.”

*Cecilia Wong Skincare Reviving Black Currant Serum

“My Black Currant Serum is supremely hydrating, has anti-aging properties and is chock-full of antioxidants. I carry a travel size in my handbag that I use for my cuticles. I have one in the shower, which I use for my body and hair, and of course, one in my bathroom which I use on my face.”

L’Occitane Pivoine Flora Lip Shine Brun Lip Gloss

“I love the subtle scent of this lip gloss. It’s hydrating and creamy, and doesn’t taste like chemicals. Also, the color is just beautiful!”

Jurlique Rose Hand Cream

“I wash and sanitize my hands a lot, so they get very dry. I make sure to moisturize after washing my hands — every single time. And this hand cream is perfect. It’s super hydrating, not sticky and has an amazing subtle scent. I carry this is in my handbag and keep one next to the sinks in my kitchen and bathroom.”

Inside Cecilia’s Bathroom

Jo Malone Wild Bluebell

“The subtle, clean floral scent is amazing. I carry a sample in my handbag and keep one in my bathroom.”

Korres Wild Rose Compact Powder

“Light and natural, this face powder never looks cakey! I love that it has anti-aging properties!”

Tarte multiplEYE lash enhancing liquid eyeliner

“It doesn’t smudge! The color is vibrant and I know it’s full of good-for-me properties.”
