Hey beautifuls! It’s been a long time and I’ve missed you guys so so much! But life has been so hectic and crazy but in the best way possible! Hahaa quick life update! Work has been SO MUCH BETTER since we last spoke, my sister’s wedding is literally less than a month away (SO PUMPED), and we have a couple of trips planned the next couple of months so it’ll definitely be interesting and I can’t wait to take you guys on the ride! 🖤
What I really wanted to talk about are my current beauty essentials and favorites! I’ve been really taking care of my skin lately and putting more of an effort into my beauty routine overall. Since turning 23, I’ve realized how important it is to really take care of your skin because hellooo we only have one, am I right? So if that means skipping a couple beach days, I’m totally okay with it.
And we all know summer is right around the corner and that can only mean one thing. HOT AS HELL. So I wanted to share a few of my beauty essentials that I’ve been obsessed with and that’ll be used to the very last drop. Let me know what your current favorites are or if you’ve used any of these below! Love you guys!
Who would have known! I’ve tried a few masks before but none like the ones Forever21 has. I’ve tried a handful of them and they leave my skin feeling soft, dewy, and brand new. Plus I’m always in a constant battle with acne but these masks help reduce my redness and the appearance of my scars too.
This little jar is amazing. Funny story. My sister actually bought this for herself but it was too dark for her so she gave it to me and I’ve been using it ever since. I use it during the week and on days I don’t wanna wear foundation. The formula is really light and creamy. And what I’ll usually do is layer this bad boy with my concealer to cover any blemishes or dark circles under my eyes. That being said fair warning. It’s a skin tint so it’s very light coverage but I like it especially for the summer months when it’s just too hot to wear anything heavy on my face. I mean I’d even wear this to the beach! It’s that light!
This is an oldie but a goodie and let me just say, I’ve had this mini for the LONGEST time! It lasts forever because a little goes a long way which I love. And it’s perfect to travel because it’s so small. There’s really not much else to say about this product except that I love it and it’s such a pretty sheen. Does that make sense? Hahaa.
So I just recently started using serums but didn’t wanna spend a TON of money on one so I went to TJMaxx a few months ago and picked up this Measurable Difference Serum. Again, I’m pretty new to these but I’ve heard so many good things about them so no surprise, I really liked this one. I apply it at night before I go to sleep and it’s really soothing on my skin. And I do see a difference in the texture of my skin. It’s a lot smoother and feels super hydrated the next morning. In the future, I definitely want to splurge on a REALLY GOOD one though so if you guys have any recommendations, let me know!
This is by far my favorite drugstore SPF! I had been using it for years but then I stopped for some reason and just recently picked it up again. I just love how 1. it doesn’t leave that white sheen on your face that most sunscreens leave, 2. it isn’t greasy so it goes great under makeup, and 3. it smells like SUMMER. Literally you guys! I don’t know how to explain the scent and we haven’t developed screens that transfer scents so just take my word on it, it smells really good.
Hope you liked this post! Drop me a line, tell me what you though! I love hearing from you guys! Sending so much love your way.
