We are free-styling our posts now (not going to lie, I think I’ll have fun with this). Today we are diving into a topic very different then what you’ve seen so far: beauty products.
My obsession with makeup started at a very young age (I broke into my sister’s bag of makeup at the ripe age of 4). Additionally, I have suffered with acne for much of my teen and adult life, so I keep a good amount of products around (ask my husband what percentage of drawer space he gets…).
I thought I would share a few of my favourites with you; my “holy grail” products. The products that I will probably never part with as long as I live. Here we go…
- Best facial moisturizer: Antipodes Avocado Pear Night Cream
I like it so much that I disregard the “night” part. I use it as both day and night cream. If you have oily skin like me, you may find you shine easily with it, and that it can cause pore buildup, but I usually counteract that with a great AHA serum or exfoliating treatment to ensure clear pores. I don’t mind that it isn’t a perfect match for oily skin because it makes my skin so soft and plump.
- Best lip treatment: Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask
If I could only have one product in my collection for the rest of my life, it would be this!! My pet peeve is having dry, cracked lips, and this lip mask is the real deal for making sure that doesn’t happen. Although it is indicated as a “mask”, I use it around the clock as my lip “chap” and “gloss”. It is pricey, but SO worth the buy!!
- Best facial mask: The entire GlamGlow product line
Again, pricey products, but these masks will change your skincare game! They target an array of skin issues, and I love the smells! If you want a cheaper alternative, Biore’s masks are a very close dupe for the GlamGlow products, and for ¼ of the cost (and you can find them at the drugstore!)
- Best shaving lotion: Aveeno Active Naturals Skin Relief Shave Gel
I had to include this because every other shaving gel I’ve ever used left my skin completely parched. This one actually stands true to its claim of leaving your skin silky smooth. Hands down, this will be the only shave gel I ever use again!
- Best eye cream: Kiehl’s creamy avocado eye treatment
Okay, I’m seeing a trend with avocado here…lol. Guys! All I have to say is buy this! SO good!
- Best drugstore product: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer
I had a hard time finding a concealer that covers dark circles without being cakey, until this one. It cancels, corrects and looks creamy. Dream product if you ask me!
I’m not going to lie, I could probably list more, but I don’t want to bore you. However, if you want me to come back with a continuation post comment below and let me know! Also, be sure to leave a list of your favourites too! I LOVE talking about beauty products!
Until next time,
- Jess 🙂
