Origins Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay
This mask is seriously the best, and not just because it comes in the prettiest pink ever! The paraben-, sulfate- and phthalate-free mask exfoliates and deep cleans skin without drying it out. It’ll improve your skin’s texture and leave it feeling super soft and glowing! I like using this once or twice a week and follow up with a great moisturizer to lock in hydration and leave my face looking as good as new.
Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter
I’m the biggest body butter fan you’ll ever find, and this one did not disappoint! The whipped texture of this moisturizer makes it go on so smooth and will immediately make your skin feel more hydrated. The 100% pure argan oil has antioxidants and essential fatty acids to help smooth, firm and hydrate skin and it really won’t let you down!
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment
Ya ever go into Sephora looking for one specific thing and then come out with 30 other things that you probably didn’t need but are pretty pumped to try? That’s what happened here, and I’m so glad. No matter what season it is, my lips are unfortunately always chapped. But, this super hydrating lip treatment has been working wonders for me! It’s lightweight enough to be worn all day, but I love applying a thick coat to my pout before bed and letting it work its magic.
Fresh Cocoa Body Exfoliant
If you're not using a body scrub at least once a week in the shower, you're seriously missing out! I love using this one before work because the smell is more refreshing and will wake you up better than a big cup of coffee. You'll see instant results and a noticeable glow after using this exfoliant... I guarantee you'll wish you'd tried it out sooner!
Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer
Whether acne is a concern for you or not, this stuff is a must-try. The hypoallergenic, oil-free moisturizer won’t clog your pores, and doesn’t feel thick or heavy like some moisturizers do. It absorbs pretty quickly; I can apply my makeup right after putting this on in the morning! It’ll definitely your face feel moisturized and it’ll give you the perfect glow!
Avene Thermal Spring Water Spray
This is one that my boyfriend judges me for, but I use it literally every day! The refreshing mist is perfect for so many things — setting your makeup, cleaning your face, freshening up your beauty look throughout the day and so much more. I use this product every morning before applying foundation and to set my makeup when I’m finished, and even more in the summer to keep a glowing, hydrated look all day long!
Karuna Hydrating Face Mask
I’ll admit that I’m not the biggest fan of sheet masks (I prefer a regular face mask over a sheet) BUT this is one that I love and always enjoy using! The mask has aloe vera, chamomile, vitamin B and hyaluronic acid to help hydrate and detoxify your skin. It’s a necessity for dry, dehydrated skin and will help restore and nourish it with just one use!
Essie Apricot Cuticle Oil
It's important to show your nails some love, too! I was cursed with the worst cuticles in the world, so they're constantly dry and peeling. Essie's nail oil changes that real quick. I love applying some once I'm done getting ready for work, and then letting it soak into my cuticles on my drive into the office, or just applying it at night before bed! This is one product that will totally change the nail game for you!
ELF Lip Exfoliator
I've tried many a lip scrub before finding this one, and I'll never go back. The ELF lip exfoliator comes in a lipstick tube, ensuring a mess-free application. I'm not a huge fan of ones that come in jars because it gets all under my nails and falls off my lips and don't even get me started on DIY lip scrubs... talk about a mess! This kind is so simple and effortless, and will smooth your pout in seconds. AND IT'S ONLY THREE DOLLARS. Need I say more?
Vaseline Lip Therapy
When I say I swear by this product I'm not even joking. I've never come across such a moisturizing, healing lip product in my life and I don't think I'll find anything better than this! I'm currently loving the Rose flavored lip therapy, which is not only super hydrating, but also smells great and is a gorgeous rose pink color that's flattering on anyone!
