I have a bit of a confession to make. I am one of those people who likes to peek at the vanity counters and medicine cabinets when I visit my friends and family. In my defense I consider myself doing research. Yep, that’s it! Research! I want to know what products and goodies are in your routine. From your eye creams to your body care and SPF. And if you are into make-up, I for sure want to know what you have in your beauty arsenal.
It’s only fair that I share with you a few of my favorite beauty must haves. I have lots of favorites, but these are my top 5 that I would grab if I was told I could only take 5 things! I don’t know who would do that to me but here goes!
Love, Beauty and Planet Tumeric and Tonka Essence Sun Kissed Glow Body Wash. With sunny summer weather lurking around the corner – which we will hopefully be able to get out and enjoy after COVID quarantine, we will want to debut soft, glowy skin and this body wash DOES NOT disappoint. First off, it smells, like delicious. But not in an overpowering way. It has soft hints of Tonka Vanilla and it leaves my skin feeling so soft and amazing.
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask I think this may be a cult fave as I am pretty certain that this is Sephora’s highest and best reviewed lip care product. It truly is amazing. I have really dry chap lips, particularly during the winter months and this is my saving grace. It is the most luxurious lip balm that I have ever smeared over your my lips! Now, it does not have the chapstick price tag. It retails for around $20 but worth every single penny. The pot is small, but you only need a little bit to cover your lips. And to be honest, it lasts a really long time since you don’t need so much.
Hourglass Veil Translucent Setting Powder. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. OK so this would be the first thing that I would grab. Why? Diamonds that’s why! The finely-milled powder is infused with diamond powder to create a light-refracting effect that, when photographed, doesn’t cause flashback. It is the most flawless finish that I have ever experienced in setting my foundation. Price tag around $45.
Hello Bello Hair Skin and Nail
Vitamins are a big part of my daily routine and of course I want to take vitamins that not only support my healthy body and that naturally should include vitamins that support healthy skin, hair and nails. Hello Bello was co-founded by Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, both parents who believe people would have access to affordable premium products. They offer a selection of products ranging from vitamins to diapers, organic laundry detergent and bug spray.
I have to say that these vitamins keep my skin looking pretty vibrant and my nails and hair strong. They taste like the kind of candy I loved (still do) as a kid and they are made without artificial flavors and colors, high fructose corn syrup, common allergens (wheat, gluten, eggs and peanuts), artificial preservatives and gelatin. These a priced well at $10 and can be found in Walmart or ordered from the Walmart website.
Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes in Shy
Whenever I want to give my eyes an extra sexy boost, these are hands down my go-to lashes. Kiss has mastered the technology that creates tapered ends where they blend seamlessly with natural lashes. These are significantly lighter in weight than traditional lashes, and you can barely feel them on!
