While some of us take pleasure in elaborate skincare routines, there are those of us who just can’t muster up the energy (or just the concern) to dedicate half an hour or longer to their skin. If you’re part of the latter group of people, then skincare sticks may be right up your alley. Quick and easy to use, these skincare sticks can cleanse, moisturize, fight the signs of aging, etc. with just a few swipes. Here are some skincare sticks you might wanna try out.

It’s also formulated with mangosteen peel extract, which works to prevent the formation of new pimples.
