Young professional living in the Greater Boston Area - but a midwestern girl at heart! I am a fitness fanatic, shopaholic, avid hockey fan, and currently in wedding planning chaos. Looking for the best products for a 23 year old gal on a budget!
Just began using this concealer as I didn't think my previous one provided enough coverage and had heard great things. I definitely don't regret it and will be using this as my go to from now on! There are great shades to choose from - I found that the vanilla wasn't to light or yellow for my skin tone so while it provided great coverage it wasn't cakey looking and still looks natural. I wish it was a little less expensive but all of the decent concealers are so I don't find it unreasonable.
I am a big fan of Davines hari products and absolutely love getting their samples in my birchbox subscription as they are typically pretty expensive. I was very excited to try this one out but don't think it compared to previous one's I have tried from the brand. While it was definitely better than drug store brand conditioner, I just don't think this one was worth the money for me. It did have a great scent and packaging. I recommend Davines Oi Absolute Beautifying Conditioner (For All Hair Types) 250Ml/8.45Oz
I am a big fan of Davines shampoo and absolutely love getting their samples in my birchbox subscription as they are typically pretty expensive. I was very excited to try this one out but don't think it compared to previous one's I have tried from the brand. While it was definitely better than my regular shampoo I just don't think this one was worth the money for me. I recommend Davines Oi Shampoo 9.46 fluid oz
I received this in a birchbox and really liked it for days when I wanted a little bit more color! It 's super easy to use and carry around for touch ups but I noticed that it doesn't stay on that well. It was a fun sample to receive but don't know if I'd buy.
I absolutely love this face primer! It is so hydrating without being thick - it seriously just absorbs right into your skin. It's consistency is pretty thin and it smells wonderful too! I have also noticed that my makeup stays on much better since switching to this primer as my old one was too oily vs this one. The packaging is great too, not only is it cute but the bottle has a pump on it making it super easy to use and also gets the most out of the product. The only downside is it is a little spendy but I'd say you're going to spend $30 or more for a primer that's as good as this anyways!
This is my favorite shampoo! I received a sample in a birchbox and was addicted. At first the scent seems a little strong but then you realize you don't need to use much and it's more of a tingly refreshing feeling. My hair has never felt better. The only downside is the price of this. If you are one to typically spend more on your shampoo then this is worth the price but definitely spendier than the average.
This mask feels and smells so good for those that are going through breakouts! I have heard that it can "sting" or be a little strong for those with sensitive skin but I didn't have that problem at all - I enjoyed the minty refreshing feeling. It is a great every day or every few day mask versus the occasional one as it doesn't dry out your skin. I know there are two separate kinds, I got the one that's more hydrating. For those going through a temporary breakout I would recommend the LUSH Cosmetic Warrior. Giving 4 stars because it is a little spendy to use as a staple in your beauty routine!
I purchased this when I couldn't find the regular one I use Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover and was extremely disappointed. I thought this would be comparable and not only is it much more difficult to actually get my makeup off but it slightly stings my eyes if anything gets in them. Not gently at all. Additionally, it was more expensive for a much smaller amount. Disappointed.
My absolute favorite perfume! I wear this on a daily basis. It is a little spendy but the bottle goes a long way. The scent is soft but not too sweet and overpowering at the same time. It is a great go to for those that don't want an obnoxious scent but still want to smell pretty.
