SHOP MY PICKS!
I bought my DermaFlash during the Nordstrom Sale two years ago and cannot recommend it enough. A lot of people are scared of this one because it involves taking a razor to your face but I promise it is not scary at all! It is super easy to use. Basically, the tool has a very fine razor that you skim along the surface of your skin and it scrapes away any peach fuzz and most importantly all that dead skin! This is a tool you only need to use once a week and it makes you skin smoother than ever before making make up go on SO easily and smoothly. If you want a more in-depth overview of this tool you can check out my blog post about it here.
I’ve had the GloPro Microneedling tool for a few years but I’m not that consisten in how often I use it. The basic explanation of the GloPRO is that it’s a roller with tons of tiny little needles on it. You run the roller over your skin to puncture little holes in it that will allow your serums, moisturizers, etc. get deeper into your skin and become more effective. The process also stimulates new cell growth for fresher and younger looking skin. I don’t use this enough to really be able to tell you if it works, however, I do believe the science behind it and Jaime O’banion, the woman who invented the GloPRO has incredibly perfect skin so I trust her on this one. I think that this is something that will show longer term effects that I’m just not noticing day to day. You can read more about it in my blog post here.
I just bought this tool the other day and am really excited about it because I have heard amazing things and have been wanting one for a while. This device features a vacuum suction cup with a spinning disk in the middle. The spinning disk is slightly rough and acts as the microdermabrasion removing the dead dull skin that creates a barrier on the top layer of your skin. The vacuum suction pulls blood to the surface of your skin promoting your body’s natural collagen production which will make your skin brighter and more youthful. The reason I bought this is because I have some scaring and dark pigmentation from cystic acne that I’m trying to get rid of but it’s also supposed to help with wrinkles, acne and overall complexation! I’m planning to do a full review on this in a few months.
If you’re not looking to splurge on one of the skin care tools I mentioned above, these little magic eraser makeup removal cloths are awesome. You just have to get them wet and your make up comes right off! I just love having them on hand to take off my eye makeup and give a first pass at washing off my foundation and everything else before I fully wash my face at night. These are also great to travel with!
Charlotte Tilbury is my favorite brand for lipsticks. They are so smooth and she makes so many pretty colors. “Pillow Talk” is the most popular of all her colors and it’s actually what I wore on my wedding day! My makeup artist suggested it to me and I was immediately obsessed. This set is such a great deal because it comes with the lipstick, lip liner and a gloss. Pairing all three together makes a big difference so definitely get the set at this price while you can.
I am obsessed with all of the SUGAR lip balms they are super hydrating but not sticky! I usually have one in my purse at all times because they are so perfect for every day whether you’re at the office or running errands. This set comes with the lip therapy treatment, The SUGAR polish in “Fresh” which is my favorite color and a lip polish!
I used this for the past year to get ready for my wedding and saw great results! I have never received so many compliments on how long my lashes are. It’s pricey but I definitely recommend trying it out if you are looking to enhance your lashes. The one bottle lasted me about a year so it goes a long way!
HAIR & BODY
I used this shampoo and conditioner for the past two years and it is amazing and completely worth the price. I recently decided to switch to something different just to mix it up but it’s just not the same. After I started using this shampoo, I was able to grow my hair longer than I ever had because it was SO healthy! It also keeps my hair clean for several days so I can go a while between washes.
This is one of my forever favorite go to perfumes. It is so light and fresh smelling and perfect for the summer months although I love it so much I still wear it all winter long too!
I have never used this before and really have never used a self-tanner in general but I’m trying to stay out of the sun now and thought it would be a good time to test this self-tanner out. I still have not used it but I’ve heard so many great things. There was literally a girl raving about while I was standing in line to buy it!
I bought this deodorant during last year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale after hearing so many people rave about it. I am so glad I tried it! It smells so good and not like some of the icky drugstore fragrances! It’s a little pricey but this set is such a great deal. It comes in a pack of three which lasted me at least 9 months.
You’ve probably seen me obsess over this robe several times on Instagram. I’m actually wearing it as I type this blog post. It’s so incredibly comfortable and warm! It’s like being wrapped in a big huge plush blanket and the price point is much better than the barefoot dreams one. I have the pink color but I would suggest going with Charcoal if you’re going to wear it while you do your make up so it doesn’t get make up stains.
