My Holy Grail Beauty Products
Hi babes! Today I'm talking all about my favorite beauty products! Between my blog and Instagram, I share a ton of different products and it can probably get a bit overwhelming. Some I like and some I love, but there's only a handful of products that I continue to repurchase. Today I wanted to take the time to share those with you. These are my ride or die products that I will forever recommend!
SKIN CARE MUST HAVES
This face wash is the bomb dot com. I've written multiple reviews about it because it's just that good. It's super gentle which I value when it comes to skin care products. It is all natural and oil based. Because it's oil based, it removes every trace of makeup & dirt from your face. Talk about an amazing product. This is a nighttime essential for me.
This face cleanser is another one of my favorites. Again, it is super gentle and leaves your skin feeling fresh & clean. I love this cleanser for the morning because it wakes me up just enough to feel prepared for the day. I switch back and forth between this cleanser and the soy face cleansing milk. Both have a creamy texture and are the perfect go to if you're looking for something effective and gentle.
This exfoliator is the best one I have ever used. Because it is so fine, it's safe to use every day; however, I only use it a few times a week. After using this, my skin feels softer than ever. If I have a breakout, I use this every day until my skin is cleared up. The key to this is to not pick at your face - let the product do the work! I promise you will see results within a couple days if you use it religiously! The bottle also lasts for months which makes it worth the price!
This serum has been a game changer for me! I absolutely loveee it! I apply it in the morning after cleansing and before moisturizer/primer. The vitamin C makes my skin so glowy which looks great under foundation. I definitely noticed a difference in my skin between the time I ran out and the time I repurchased. It didn't look as radiant which I found to be amazing! It definitely proved that this product works. You also can't beat it for the price. It's only $28 and most serums typically run upwards of $50!
MAKEUP MUST HAVES
Confession: this is the only foundation I have ever used. I started using a full coverage foundation almost two years ago and this one has always been my go to. It is noncomedogenic which means it will not clog your pores. This was the number one quality I looked for when choosing a foundation. It stays in place all day and seriously leaves my skin looking so smooth. It has always been good to me so I never had a reason to switch!
I've tried a tonnnn of different bronzers over the years. Once I discovered the NARS bronzer in the shade Laguna, I never tried anything else. It is definitely buildable which makes it the perfect shade for any season. I love the subtle shimmer and how long it lasts. If you've never tried this bronzer, trust me, you need to!
I never really believed in using lash primers until I tired this one by Urban Decay. It really adds volume and length to my lashes. More importantly, it helps my mascara stay on SO much longer without it flaking off! Talk about amazing. I use it in conjunction with the Urban Decay mascara which I'm talking about next!
I've tried a ton of mascaras from drug store to high end and this one is the one I always come back to! I love that it has more of a wet consistency as opposed to dry. That makes it super easy to layer without it getting clumpy. I also love the wand because it separates my lashes pretty good. I always get compliments with this mascara and it's one of the very few that provide awesome coverage with only two coats!
I have repurchased this palette a few times now! It literally has all the perfect shades to create any kind of eye look you're going for. Whether you want a basic every day look, or dark smoky eye, this palette can do it all. The formula of the shadows is super smooth and long lasting. They also blend really easily. I love that it's a small palette, making it perfect for travel!
HAIR CARE MUST HAVES
Dry shampoo is a must have in my arsenal of beauty products. It's also a product that I believe you should invest in. Going a couple days between washes almost always requires a dry shampoo to be used. This one is the only one I can count on to thoroughly clean my hair and keep it looking super fresh. The scent is also amazing which helps when you're smelling it throughout the day!
This oil is the bomb. It's definitely a splurge but SO worth it. I love that it is a multi-use product. It cuts down on frizz which is great for summer time. It shines and smooths the hair, keeping it super healthy. It also can be used as a treatment on damp hair. I typically put it in my hair when it's damp and then blow dry it in. On the days I don't wash my hair, I will use it from mids to ends if my hair needs to be freshened up! This oil is also on the more lightweight side which is nice because it doesn't weigh your hair down.
I'm a hairspray junkie and this one by Moroccanoil is the one I use the most consistently. I always always have this one on hand. The medium is my favorite because it provides just enough hold while also leaving your hair flexible and touchable. It's definitely buildable depending on how much hold you want. Of course I also love the scent of any Moroccanoil product!
I just wrote up a blog post featuring some of my favorite products from Arrojo (read it here). I have already repurchased the dry conditioner! it is amazing on second & third day hair. It adds so much shine and makes your hair soft to the touch. It's definitely a go to product for me when my ends are feeling dull!
