Hi babies!!! I am absolutely loving my morning and being able to catch up with things I’ve wanted to blog about all week! It’s so nice to have some down time to myself to drink coffee and write and zone out💕
Today I will be talking about some products I’ve picked up recently. These have come from purchases, beauty subscriptions, and DIY products that have been given to me as gifts. I cannot wait to share with you what awesome products I have so if you are interested in seeing them then please keep reading😘😘😘
As you can see I have an array of different products from skin care to powder to oils and even some foiled eye shadows. This is definitely a well rounded bunch of products that could truly work for anybody.
The first product I want to talk about is one of my absolute favorites. I received this in my December BoxyCharm box and am absolutely in love with it. This is a Beauty For Real Lip Revival Scrub and it has literally saved my lips since I first tried it! I use it to exfoliate my lips either in the morning or before bed and it leaves my lips smooth and soft and gets all the dead skin off while holding in moisture so they don’t dry out. It has a citrus smell to it that is literally heaven in a jar and I cannot say enough about this product! It is definitely affordable as well…it is priced on their website for $14 and they are also currently offering free shipping.
To follow up the lip scrub I have been obsessed with the Hanalei Lip Treatment. First of all, not only is the product amazing but I truly love what this brand is about. They are based in Hawaii and use all local oils and botanicals extracted from the islands. How cool is that ? They are also cruelty, paraben, sulfate, and phthalate free. The second I put this on I could tell this Lip treatment was made from very quality ingredients. It contains kikui oil, agave and grape seed oil, and shea butter. It was so smooth and creamy and delicious and really really hydrated my lips and got them ready for my lip color. I tend to use this product more at night to let it really soak in while I sleep. This product is priced on their website at $20.
Next up I want to mention the new Tarte Maracuja Oil. This is one of the best oils for my skin I ever have tried in my life. I struggle with oils because I have combination skin and a lot of oils leave me feeling heavy and greasy. This oil is so light weight and doesn’t leave a greasy feel at all. Maracuja oil itself is rich in essential fatty acids and vitamin C which helps firm the face and leaves it smooth and bright. I would highly recommend trying this product and using a few drops of it on your face before bed time! Priced at $48
Next up I must talk about these bomb BH Cosmetics foil eye shadows !!!! Oh my god guys seriously these are so amazing. For being a compact palette with only six shades they are seriously so beautiful and pigmented. I do highly suggest spraying your brush with MAC Fix+ or another high quality setting spray before going in with this product so it will really really pop on your eye. I do wish that this palette gave names to the eye shadows so I could list them for you but I did swatch them in crappy light (sorry) so you can get a feel for how they look on my skin! Unfortunately, this palette is not available on their website but you can purchase the full 28 shade foil eyes palette for $12
Moving on to a brand that I love soooo very much and will rave about until the day I die…Josie Maran. I absolutely LOVE everything about her and her Cosmetics. They use 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil as their main ingredient in their products. Her goal was to provide women with products that are luxurious but also conscious. They use only Fair Trade Argan Oil that is harvested by co ops of Moroccan women that make a living wage. She is not only providing us with amazing products, but providing women across the world with jobs and security for their families. Ugh😍😍😍 I want to talk about two of her products I picked up. First being the Argan Enlightenment Illuminizing Powder. I am a huge fan of this. When I first bought it I thought it was going to be a highlight. Which it is but it’s very subtle and doesn’t leave my skin looking like it has a ton of texture like other highlights tend to do. It’s a beautiful almost rose gold champagne shade and looks beautiful on my skin. If you are looking for a more subtle mature highlight I would definitely recommend this product. Priced at $30
Next is her Argan Color Stick in shade Dreamy Pink. Guys this is so beautiful and creamy and blends out so nicely if you are looking for a cream blush. The Argan Oil obviously leaves the skin hydrated and beautiful. You can also use this as a lip product! The shade is absolutely gorgeous and could be worn honestly all year round. Love😍 This product is priced at $22
And last but certainly not least I have a couple of amazing products that were given to me. These are items you could make yourself or most likely find an awesome dupe at Lush or another organic essential oil type brand. Both of these products leave my face unbelievably hydrated and soft. The scrub cleans my pores and removes dirt and dead skin but isn’t harsh because the essential oils heal and hydrate. And the anti aging oil is an absolute dream. I use this before bed to let it set in my skin overnight.
Ingredients used in Scrub: cane sugar, coconut oil, rice flour, colloidal oat flour, lemon oil, sweet orange oil, lavender, rosemary, pomegranate oil
Ingredients used in Anti Aging Oil: sweet almond, jojoba, vitamin E, frankincense, geranium, lemon, lavender, pomegranate oil
Okay babes that’s all I have for you from the last week!!! I hope you enjoyed my list and it gave you some inspo to try new brands or make some amazing products yourself. Have a wonderful Sunday beauty queens and I cannot wait to hear what you have to say about the products I mentioned.
