I thought this would be the perfect time to share some of my grail products with you all, since beauty rarely hits sale. I don't wear too much makeup, but these products haven't left my routine since I was 15.
1. Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation - I'm sort of on the hunt for something new, but I'm always skeptical since I've been using this forever! In the summer I switch over to the Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer.
2. NARS Blush in "Lovejoy" - Another product that I haven't changed for years (I would bet that I purchased this for the first time when I was 13) and don't plan on changing anytime soon! The color on the site doesn't do it justice. It's the perfect bronzed rose and will last you forever!
SKINCARE. I'm such a junkie! I have been gifted a fair share of these products in the past, but they have totally changed my skin. I continue to repurchase them myself!
Overall favorite, mid-range brands: Origins, First Aid Beauty, and Kiehl's.
I'm completely obsessed with Origins entire Mega Mushroom skincare line with Dr. Andrew Weil. My favorites are the face serum, mask, eye serum, and soothing treatment lotion.
The Origins Charcoal Mask clears up my breakouts within 24 hours.
First Aid Beauty has the best range of products for sensitive skin. Even if you don't have sensitive skin, gentle products are almost always best! When I was an acne-ridden teenager, I was always slathering my skin with harsh chemicals and treatments. This rarely worked....my complexion improved drastically after trying FAB's products!
Face Cleanser - gentle and simple!
Ultra Repair Cream - I'm convinced I will use this until the day I die. No other moisturizer compares for the price!
Ginger and Turmeric Vitamin C Jelly Mask - I love to use this in the morning! It soothes any redness or flare-ups after 10 minutes on. I'm usually wary when someone says they like the smell of a skincare product, but I love the scent of this! It's super subtle. The mask is a little treat and stress-reliever for early, jam-packed days.
Time for Kiehl's favorites!
This mask is another go-to, similar to the Origins charcoal mask mentioned above. I think the Kiehl's one is a bit less harsh!
The Kiehl's Calendula Herbal Extract Toner is the only toner I've been using lately, but it is new to my cabinet! I've been loving this one because it's alcohol-free. It hasn't seemed to dry out my skin like many other products <3
Every time I walk by the Sephora in my neighborhood, I have trouble restraining myself from going in to buy sheet and eye masks. I love the Sephora branded ones because they're somewhat affordable, even though they're a single-use product!
Maison Margiela Fragrance's REPLICA Filter "Blur" is lovely for layering, or as a subtle scent on it's own.
Some wishlist products....
