Wouldn't Have It Any Other Way!
This has been my go to favorite lotion for a few years now. This lotion smells great, it goes on smooth, dries quickly, hydrates and is only about $5! This tub can literally last me almost a year! That is the best bargain I have ever seen. I feel like this lotion has done wonders for my skin with its elasticity. I have since implemented more potent moisturizers, but I still have this lotion in rotation!
This is the best overall mascara that I have tried. It curls, lengthens and makes your lashes look natural all at the same time. Every time I buy a different mascara thinking I am going to like it better I don't and then I always come back to Benefit. There simply isn't one that is better than this (and trust me, I have looked)!
I use this stuff every single night. It is kind of pricey, but I think it is worth it. I have the Vitamin C serum that I use during the day in conjunction with this that is also amazing! When I use this night serum I can actually feel my face tightening (which I love)! I am almost done with my first bottle of this and I will be repurchasing because I can absolutely see a difference in my skin especially on my forehead! I am only 30 years old, but I feel like my skin has already drastically improved!
This is by far my favorite peel. I actually bought the 30 pack after I initially tried it. I have tried the extra strength peels (since I do not have sensitive skin). This comes in a 2 step process. There is an alpha wipe and a beta wipe.
- First you rub the alpha wipe all over your clean face. I rub it in until the cloth is pretty dry (2-2 minutes) and then I let it set on my face for another 5-10 minutes - The beta peels goes on the same way. You will wipe the beta cloth all over your face again until the cloth is dry. After you are done you DO NOT wash your face.
I love to use this peel when my face feels a little more oily or when I feel like I might be getting a breakout. I have literally felt a pimple coming out, use this peel and then woke up the next morning with nothing there. I highly recommend these!
I just switched to this moisturizer and it is AMAZING! I was using another moisturizer that made my skin oily during the day, so I had to switch to something else during the day. This product is a great price at only $34.00 from Sephora, I will happily buy it again. When you put this on your face and neck you can actually feel your skin almost #tighten and become taut. There is almost a mousse-like texture to the cream so a little goes a long way. It also has a wonderful smell as well which is a great addition to any product! I highly recommend this product to everyone! Those Greeks sure know what they are doing!
I have very #fine blonde hair. I always do something to my hair. I cannot simply just leave my hair alone when I get out of the shower or even blow dry it and leave it because it is just limp and straight. So I #curl or make waves in my hair almost every single day (SHOCK AND HORROR to most of you), but I don't mind! The price of #beauty and all of that. When I was at #Sephora my assistant told me about this product and I decided to give it a try. She said you could use it as a dry shampoo, but I am not a fan of them because my hair is so fine that it makes my hair look horrible. Long story short, I love this product. I use it for the volume capabilities before I style my hair. I put it on my roots and then shake my fingers through my hair and immediately my roots look lifted! I finally decided last weekend to try the dry shampoo aspect of it and I am #impressed! This is the first product that actually does what it is supposed to do to my hair! I used it at night like some of the reviews said and when I woke up the next morning my hair actually looked pretty good! I will be a repeat buyer for sure!
I have very fine and very straight hair. I can't use a lot of products because they weigh my hair down and/or make it too oily. I love texturizing sprays and salt sprays though because they give a little body and texture to my otherwise limp and lifeless hair. Bumble and Bumble has apparently been around for a while, but this is the first time I have actually tried it and I am so glad that I did. This surf spray is perfect for my hair. It is lightweight and free from harmful chemicals. It really does make your hair feel like you just got out of the ocean. I have a little "crunch" in my hair after I have sprayed it and style my hair. It smells great and doesn't weigh down my hair AT ALL. I bet if you have curly or wavy hair this product would be even more amazing, but sadly I will never experience those coveted curls unless I make them myself! I like this product so much that I am about to buy a few more bumble and bumble products (and that is saying something because they are not cheap $$)!
I am obsessed with Chapstick and lip gloss (although I have never finished an entire tube of either because I lose it somewhere along the way), but Bite is my new favorite, and I think I might actually finish this tube, YAY! It is made with all natural products and leaves your lips hydrated and silky smooth. This product tastes (of course I licked my lips as soon as I put it on, WHO DOESN'T?) and smells wonderful as well! I bought it in the satin finish that is a perfect pink color for my lips. It adds just a hint of color and shine without all the sticky mess of your normal lip gloss. I use it during the day with my makeup and at night before I go to sleep and my lips have never felt better.
I have used different primers in the past and they didn't work out at all. My makeup would be flaky after I put it over the primer and then you could see my makeup separating with the primer. It was clear to me after a couple of uses that I was in desperate need of a replacement primer! When I first tried Becca Backlight Priming Filter I was immediately hooked. This primer was not heavy, it went on smooth and it was just enough highlight. PERFECT. I use it everyday whether I am wearing a lot of makeup of just a little bit. It gives you a beautiful glow with minimal effort!
