Farmacy Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer
As someone who, for many years, not only had horrible cystic acne, but also extremely sensitive and breakout prone skin, gel moisturizers are usually what I reach for when it comes to my morning moisturizer. The Farmacy Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer instantly became a staple in my morning skincare routine. It’s silicone and oil free, feels lightweight, but offers plenty of hydration without feeling greasy or heavy. I love how well it layers over my other serums. It also wears well with my SPF and makeup, it doesn’t pill or mess with my makeup application. It’s truly one of the best beauty products you need in 2022!
Not only is the skin on my face sensitive, but so is the rest of my body. The Fur Oil contains a blend of oils that work together to keep skin hydrated, soothed, and irritation-free. Grape seed, jojoba, clary sage, and tea tree is the magical mixture. This oil softens hair so you get less ingrowns, soothes redness and irritation from shaving, and it’s safe for all areas of the body. It has a light, natural scent that smells good, but isn’t overpowering. I use this every single time I shave or wax and it’s incredible! This oil is 110% worth it, I promise you!
Dr. Dennis Gross All Physical Lightweight Wrinkle Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30
That name is a mouthful, but my god I don’t think I’ve ever found a better sunscreen! The Dr. Dennis Gross All Physical Lightweight Wrinkle Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 has become my go-to since the beginning of summer, and it’s still going strong! This is a mineral sunscreen made of non-nano zinc oxide. It blends into skin so easily and always looks transparent, no white cast ever! It doesn’t feel heavy or greasy, and it wears well with makeup. It’s also great for sensitive and acne prone skin! This SPF is just purely comfortable sun protection, and I love it!
Gisou Honey Infused Hair Oil
I know, it’s pricey, but it’s so so so amazing! The Gisou Honey Infused Hair Oil is infused with Mirsalehi honey and is formulated to rebuild and repair hair. It smells so good, feels so luxe, and gives hair the perfect amount of shine. I love running a little through my ends to soften, smooth, and add shine. I swear every time I use it, my hair always feels the softest and silkiest it’s ever felt! It can also be used as an overnight treatment or mask, making it super versatile too. Also, you only need a little bit, so it lasts forever!
Lilah B Aglow Golden Priming Oil
I was once an all matte girl, too afraid my skin couldn’t handle dewiness. I am forever grateful that I transitioned over to the dewy side! Products like the Lilah B Aglow Golden Priming Oil made it much easier. This 3-in-1, (serum, moisturizer, and illuminating primer), preps the skin like no other product! Don’t be afraid of this primer’s golden color! It truly creates the most stunning base with a healthy and golden glow, think your-skin-but-better! It’s extremely lightweight and comfortable to wear, and versatile! Wear it alone for a natural glow, or layer it with your favorite foundation for a flawless dewy look!
Jones Road Beauty The Mascara
Everything about the Jones Road Beauty The Mascara makes it a must have! The inky black, super pigmented formula that doesn’t flake or clump. The dense brush that makes applying super easy, and effortlessly coats each lash. Just one coat is enough for dramatic and voluminous lashes that still look natural. It’s long-lasting, but also comes off so easily, which is a big deal for me! I don’t know about you, but I just hate a mascara that’s impossible to remove! All of the above is what helped this mascara rightfully earn it’s permanent spot in my everyday makeup routine!
Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation
Full coverage and matte may not be the latest trend, or everyone’s cup of tea, but hear me out on this one. It really is too good not to share! The Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation is not your typical matte foundation. If you’re imagining a dry, lifeless finish, you’re totally wrong! Instead this foundation offers full coverage that still looks natural, all while providing an oil and shine-free finish. And I totally recommend to everyone, but especially to those who are a fan of matte or full coverage!
Maelove Skincare The Glow Maker
Finding a quality Vitamin C serum that’s actually effective and won’t break the bank is one of life’s greatest challenges. But I found the one! The Maelove The Glow Maker is the super affordable and powerful Vitamin C serum that you absolutely need in your life. This serum contains Vitamin C (15% L-ascorbic acid), Vitamin E, and ferulic acid, which all work to brighten skin, fade hyperpigmentation, and protect against free radicals. Plus super-hydrating hyaluronic acid and a botanical blend that helps nourish skin. It’s also rumored to be the closest thing to a dupe for the iconic and cult-favorite Skinceuticals C E Ferulic Serum. Since incorporating it into my routine, my skin has been clearer, healthier, and more glowy! And at only $28 and free shipping, you truly can’t beat The Glow Maker!
Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream
This viral body cream actually lives up to the hype! For starters, the Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream smells delicious, thanks to the signature Cheirosa ’62 fragrance that features notes of caramel, vanilla, and pistachio. I swear this scent is long-lasting and addicting, I’m constantly asked what I have on whenever I use this cream! It’s also filled with amazing ingredients that actually help keep skin moisturized, smooth, and visibly tighter!
Generation Skin Hydrating Marine Algae Eye Patches
I’m not going to lie, I always thought undereye patches were a little gimmicky. But ever since trying the Generation Skin Hydrating Marine Algae Eye Patches my mind has been completely changed! Whenever I use these, my undereye area looks so much better. They plump, firm, smooth, and brighten the area, to make even the most tired eyes wide awake! I usually pop them on before the rest of my skincare routine, let them sit for about 20 minutes, and then rub them in with my face roller.
L’oreal Infallible Freshwear 24HR Foundation
Although this ones been around for a while, it was a TikTok review that made me run out to buy it and try it. (And I’m so glad I did!) The L’oreal Infallible Freshwear 24HR Foundation is super lightweight and gives skin a beautiful, natural finish. I love how long-lasting it is, it doesn’t more around, oxidize, or cake throughout the day. I feel like this foundation is the perfect coverage for everyday wear. It comes in 30 shades and is under $15, so what’s not to love?
Mugler Alien Eau De Parfum
I started diving into the world of fragrance last year and it’s been so much fun. I’ve discovered so many amazing scents and my collection is quickly growing! One of my favorite fragrance discoveries has been Mugler Alien Eau De Parfum. It’s an amber, woody, floral scent with notes of sambac jasmine, cashmeran wood, and white amber. It smells so unique and cool to me, and goes really well with my body chemistry. It lasts so long, and every time I wear it, I’m asked what I’m wearing. It’s an attention grabber for sure, and a total confidence boost in a bottle!
Eva NYC Freshen Up Invisible Dry Shampoo
Eva NYC is one of my favorite affordable hair care brands. I’m a major fan of so many of their products, (I truly can’t live without the Mane Magic 10-In-1 Primer). The Eva NYC Freshen Up Invisible Dry Shampoo was totally new to me last year and now I can’t live without it! It’s formulated with rice starch, which effortlessly absorbs dirt and oils, revealing super clean-looking and refreshed hair. I love that how it adds a touch of volume and texture, totally reviving days old hair! At under $12, it’s absolutely budget-friendly.
Kristin Ess The One Purple Shampoo
Calling all blondes! I found the best purple shampoo that combats brass and actually keeps hair hydrated! After trying nearly every purple shampoo on the market, and dealing with half that don’t work at all and half that dry my hair out too much, I’ve found the perfect one. Kristin Ess The One Purple Shampoo is the faultless toning shampoo for eliminating brass and keeping hair soft and healthy! Plus it smells sensational. At just $12, it beats out the more expensive competition for sure.
Korres Renewing Body Cleanser in Santorini Grape
This gel-to-foam body cleanser is probably one of my favorites, ever! The Korres Renewing Body Cleanser in Santorini Grape cleanses skin without stripping it. It keeps skin balanced and hydrated. It’s soothing and nonirritating, so it’s a really great choice for anyone, especially those with sensitive skin. My absolute favorite thing about this body cleanser though has to be the smell. It’s a subtly sweet grape, I love!
Patrick Ta Monochrome Moment Velvet Blush
I’ve been a major fan of cream and liquid blushes lately, but something about this powder blush has me obsessed. The Patrick Ta Monochrome Moment Velvet Blush glides easily onto skin and blends seamlessly for a flawless and stunning natural flush of color. I love how the formula is super smooth and long-lasting! My favorite shade is She’s Adorable, but they’re all truly gorgeous! And that packaging is *chef’s kiss*!
Ouai Detox Shampoo
Because I dye my hair, I try not to wash it every single day. I aim for between 3-5 washes a week to help preserve my color and the general health of my hair. The Ouai Detox Shampoo is my secret weapon to ensuring my hair stays healthy and clean. It helps clarify and deeply cleanse hair to remove oils and product build-up. I use it about 1-2 times a week, and my hair always feels and looks healthier and softer after! With my scalp brush I really get it in and I always make sure to rinse very well afterwards. The Melrose Place scent makes the whole shower experience feel luxurious!
Ilia Beauty Super Serum Skin Tint
This is the product that took me completely out of my comfort zone last year, and it was such a good thing! The Ilia Beauty Super Serum Skin Tint is a light to medium coverage foundation that’s packed with skin loving ingredients like squalane, hyaluronic acid, and niacinamide. It offers SPF 40 with a mineral non-nano zinc oxide. Just shake it up, add a couple of drops to your hands, and apply directly on your face. You’re left with the most beautiful, dewy, your-skin-but-better look. I guarantee it!
Osea Hyaluronic Sea Serum
Probably one of the most expensive items I fell in love with this past year, but so totally worth it! The Osea Hyaluronic Sea Serum is a hyaluronic acid serum that works for all skin types, and helped to transform my skin! It’s super nourishing and hydrating, and leaves skin looking smoother, fuller, and more youthful. I love the thick gel-like consistency, and how well it wears with other products. This was such a hydration game-changer for me when I added it to my skincare routine!
Maybelline Lifter Gloss With Hyaluronic Acid
Lip gloss has been having a moment lately, and I’m so here for it. The only problem? I’m so picky when it comes to glosses. I can’t stand the feel of sticky lips, and I need something that’s more on the hydrating side. The Maybelline Lifter Gloss checks off all of my “perfect lip gloss” boxes! It offers hyaluronic acid to hydrate, but also plumps the lips, so double win. The shades add a pretty bit of color and I love how comfortable they are to wear. I keep this on me at all times!
