I was washing my face & admiring my newly cleared up skin the other night and it hit me. I need to do a blog post to recap some of my MOST favorite beauty products as of lately! PS- yep, that's right I totally just said that I was admiring my own skin. THAT alone should go to show you that I'm about to share with you some really, really awesome products!
I figured- what better time to do so than during Random Wednesday with Shanna (which I haven't had the pleasure of linking up with in a long, long time!
So! Here you have it...some of my FAVORITE beauty products!
Oh my goodness. SO MANY GOOD THINGS to say about this product. First of all- the price....this bottle (8.45 FL OZ) sells for $6. Yep, you heard me right. SIX BUCKS! Something really interesting about this product? It's actually formulated by a well disguised (trust me, I searched EVERYWHERE to figure out who it is) dermatologist. Under the brand name this product sells for $50 and up!
Y'all this stuff is amazing. It's gentle enough for my sensitive skin but still gives me a deep clean feeling Within DAYS of using this I was having people compliment me on the shape that my skin was in. Get this- it even helps my skin stay blemish free during that time of the month.
It's a Godsend. It's $6. Do your skin a favor- go try it. ASAP.
So, I bought this facial brush on a whim while placing a Sephora haul a few months back. I have NOTHING but amazing things to say about it. When I need a little more through of a cleansing this is my go to. I typically use it every or every other night (depending on how my sensitive skin is acting that week!) It gives me a SOFT yet DEEP clean which I love.
After a suggestion from the lovely Shanna herself, I signed up to receive sample kit of products form Mario Badescu- a line I had never, ever heard of previously! Well, once I had it...I fell in love with ALL of the products but specifically- the Cucumber Lotion.
Typically, I use this every other night post face wash. It's an astringent that provides refreshment, disinfecting and deep cleaning. This product also helps treat acne/pimple flare ups.
This product is $15 for 8oz which goes a LONG way. It can be purchased here or in stores (but not online!) at Ulta.
I received this product in an Ipsy Glam Bag a few months back. I was hesitant at first. You want me to do WHAT?! Put oil on my face?! Uh, no thanks. Well, I heard several fantastic reviews about it & decided to give it a shot. Boy, oh boy am I ever glad that I did!
To use this product, I apply 2-3 drops the palm of my (very clean!) hand and rub together to 'warm' the oil. Next, I firmly pat my face with the oil covering the whole face. I instantly feel a sense of moisture that I can feel working ALL. DAY. LONG.
This product can also be used to treat dry cuticles &treat split ends!
BONUS- this product is fragrance free, made with natural/organic ingredients, cruelty free & paraben free, too!
Another FABULOUS product I've been using on occasion is this Wila Cucumber Face Mask! I'm not huge on face masks, but, I've been using this every week or so and I'm absolutely in LOVE. This mask is gentle, calming while also "attacking" the oils & pimples we all struggle with.
Something else I love about this mask is that it goes on THICK. It covers the entire face in a very thick layer...something not all face masks do!
BONUS- this paraben, sulfate, DEA free & is not tested on animals. Additionally, it's a made in the USA product!
This product is available at Target & online at Willa Naturals for about $1.75 per packet (each packet is one mask).
Alright, so there you have it! My current TOP 5 skincare items right now.
