Our Favorite RoC

With lots of travel and winter weather starting to arrive, we thought it would be a great time of year to dish about our favorite RoC skincare products.

Our Favorite Skincare Finds


Last year we had had the pleasure of being brand ambassadors for RoC skincare and, as such, we had the opportunity to test out many of their products.

Our Favorite Winter Skincare Products

Winter is one of my favorite seasons. It's ridiculously hot here in Florida most of the year, so when winter finally brings some cooler temps with it, I'm beyond thrilled.

And a few of my favorite products for winter skincare are RoC's Retinol Correxion Sensitive Night Cream, Retinol Sensitive Eye Cream and Daily Resurfacing Disks. You definitely don't want to abandon your anti-aging regimen...
