During winter, I tend to dabble in new beauty products– spa nights at home are much more frequent this time of year (and around the holidays). There’s plenty of time for masks and skin treatments during hibernation! Plus, my skin needs it more than ever when it’s crisp. I’ve tried a few new things the past couple of months and wanted to highlight the products that are now firm in my beauty regimen, and a couple I still swear by after years of using.
I recently discovered this brand and I’m so happy I did! Cannot live without their Bright Concealing Elixir from here on out. The coverage and silky finish leave my skin looking fresh and makeup-less, which I love. As I get older, the less makeup I want to wear, so a little sweep under my eyes and on any uneven skin tone color works wonders. Less is more, this little tube goes a long way. Also, I mean… the pretty pink packaging? Yes.
DV had me at the tassel bottle! HOWEVER, I fell equally in love with the delicious scent of Devastatingly Chic. The names of her perfumes are hilarious and so, so delicious. I’ve never smelled a perfume quite like this one, it’s subtly sweet and I’m into it.
3/10 | La Mer Creme de La Mer
La Mer, you are a heaven sent. This cream is a heavier option that I use after an oil or serum before bed, and every morning I wake up with the most glowing, hydrated, sparkly, and dewy looking skin. It’s so worth the investment, it’s your face, after all, people.
4/10 | Herbivore Orchid Oil
I’ve never met a Herbivore product I didn’t like. I am still avidly using their coconut hair mist, and am now hooked on the Orchid facial oil as well. It’s so rich and soaks into my skin leaving it feeling baby soft after a good Clarisonic sesh.
5/10 | MŪN Rose Toner and Argan Oil
The perfect face mist to give your skin some love midday. I also sometimes will add a spritz after doing my makeup, to add some moisture/glow. I had to mention the Argan oil too… I just tried it this week and so far I really love it.
I know I have raved about this before to you, so I will keep this to the point. If you like sweet but musky… look no further!
7/10 | Kypris Moonlight Catalyst
Magic in a bottle. This is the serum I put on before the La Mer, and I’m telling you– this stuff evens my skin tone hydrates, and definitely helps with that morning glow. This brand is so so good, cannot wait to try other products! I bought it from Levert Beauty, by the way, which is one of my favorite places to discover natural beauty products. They have the best stuff! I also got a few other things that I will share soon!
8/10 | NARS Barbarella Lipstick
I have been buying this lipstick for over 6 years now…it is the absolute most perfect shade of peachy nude!
9/10 | Loewe 001
For those spring days when I’m wanting a fresher scent, I recently fell in love with Loewe and had to have it. Scent notes: pink pepper, a floral and warm heart of Egyptian jasmine and a sensual and gourmand base of amber and vanilla.
10/10 | Cuyana Travel Set
Absolute essential. These both hold so much and are the cutest cosmetic/travel bags I’ve ever seen. They have a bunch of colors, both matte and metallic, but I am just smitten with my silver and the tan leather lining. Couldn’t recommend it more.
What’s your current can’t-live-without product? Would love to know!
PS. In case you’re interested, our new bathroom rug is from Old New House, and I am obsessed. They have an amazing selection!
