Hi beauties! For the past few months I’ve tested and tried some new products that I want to share with you. To be honest, I’m trying not to spend so much on products and focus more on intentional buying. I’m basically REALLY paying attention to what works for me and what doesn’t. It’s so easy to go out and buy something based on pure hype alone! Check out my current roundup below and why I enjoy each of them.
I received this cream in exchange for review over the summer. To my surprise, I instantly fell in love with it. When I tell you this gel cream was perfect for hot weather, I am not lying! This cream is super light, hyydrating, and was the perfect base for a “no makeup” look this summer.
Another moistuizer that I fell in love with! This is definitely great for sensitive skin and super lightweight. If you haven’t noticed, I love light moisturizers even in the cooler months. The scent is not strong and keeps my skin hydrated all day. I’ll definitely repurchase as soon as I run out.
This suncreen/setting spray received a lot of mixed reviews. I was a little hesitant to try it, but ultimately glad that I did. In order for sunscreen to work, you have to reapply it multiple times throughout the day. Especially, if you are outside in the sun. This always baffled me because if you wear makeup, why in the heck would you slap on sunscreen and mess up your makeup application! What I do is apply a hefty amount of normal, cream based sunscreen before applying my makeup. Then, throughout the day I will use Supergoop to not only refresh my makeup, but to add more sun protection. So I don’t use it to set my makeup-o0nly to refresh. I like buying the mini-size so that it’s easy to carry in my purse.
I never thought I could fall in love with a cleanser. But, I did! This seaweed-based cleanser smells amazing and gets rid of impurities on my skin. After using this product, my face feels so hydrated and refreshed. A little goes a long way and it lathers really well. This also works great to wash off makeup residue. Another bonus is that the ingredients are all natural. This will be a staple in my routine from now on!
I use this alcohol-free toner before applying moisturizer. The rose scent smells great and is not overpowering. This helps my moisturizer really sink into my skin. It’s just a great step to use after cleansing and before applying moisturizer. Hydration is the key to youthful skin!
This is a great eye cream to use if you suffer from dark circles and some puffiness. I noticed that for me it worked well when I layered it with another eye serum. The consistency is more like a gel that absorbs into the skin pretty fast. So it’s perfect to use right before applying makeup.
My lips often get really dry. This lip treatment really helps my lips stay moisturized and for a longer amount of time than any other lip balm I’ve tried. You can use it as an overnight lip treatment or reapply throughout the day. I use it in both ways! I feel this product deserves way more hype than other lip masks I’ve tried.
I am absolutely obsessed with all things turmeric. This product came in my FabFitFun box and I love it! I use it as a refresher throughout the day or at night after using a face mask to add extra hydration. If you are unfamiliar, turmeric is a plant, rich in antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties.
I found out about this mask through a fellow blogger on Instagram. Again, any product that has turmeric in it, I have to give it a try! This mask is perfect to brighten and tone the skin. After I used this just for a few days, I noticed my skin had an amazing glow.
I learned from an esthetician that if you want anything on your body to be healthy, you have to keep the area moisturized. In comes this brow balm! If you’re looking for a product to help grow your brows and keep them moisturized, then, this is the produtct for you. I’ve had this container forever and definitely plan to repurchase. I love using this in the morning to slick down my brows before filling them in. Also, I use it at night to moisturize my brows and keep them hydrated while I sleep. It has castor oil in it which is known to help grow brows and lashes. It also has cacao powder which gives the brows a hint of color by making them appear darker.
I am always trying eye gels and there are quite a few brands that I really like. However, I believe these gels get the job done and you get a good amount of product in each order–all for a good price. I love using these in the morning while getting dressed. My eyes look and feel less puffy, and feel really smooth after using these. I love patting in the extra serum before using my toner.
I don’t use this as often as I’d like. But, when I do I fall in love with it every time. This serum is used to naturally exfoliate your body and leave it with a beautiful glow. It does just that! It’s more of a thick, gel consistency in my opinion, and smells so good. I use this moreso on my legs to try to keep them as smooth and hydrated as possible.
