First class beauty products

As with every Spring, I've been throwing away the old and decluttering. I searched my makeup drawers for expired products that smelled funny or basically suck. Any unflattering color cosmetics are given away to friends who might use that tube of lipstick a heck of a lot more than I. I try not to waste.

This Spring I did purge quite a bit, clothes too, but that meant that I also needed to restock the shelves. My goal is to only buy what I need when it comes to beauty EXCEPT when it comes to lip products because that's just a non-negotiable. Anyway, I wanted to share some products that are new to me AND products that I instantly fell in love with.

I always need a less intense; serum based facial moisturizer for warm weather and this baby delivers. My skin literally feels satin-y smooth all day versus greasy and heavy. The scent is mild and I've been going through bottles like hot cakes. I don't think you need to spend a fortune to get a facial moisturizer that keeps its promise.

At just $5 a pop I can afford to test many colors but I started with two purchased at Ulta. Both colors were ultra flattering and moisturizing. I only wear matte lip products unless it's a glossy gloss. I find them to be more current and these dry perfectly matte and stay put all day. I do recommend throwing a lipliner underneath to prevent bleeding.

Again, non greasy and absorbs ultra quick. I purchase mine at Whole Foods. I'm getting a lot of fine lines and I feel like applying this product literally fills in the gaps. I was never addicted to eye cream before but now I am!


It's not what you think. I wouldn't even guess cherry as the scent because it's that faint. I will tell you this...this is hands down the BEST dry shampoo I've ever tried. I am forcing myself to only shampoo every other day because I've read so much on the subject and this gets me through the day. My hair is manageable like I just got a blow out. No joke. Both this blogger and this blogger inspired me and it's paying off. Get it at Ulta.

If you're going to shampoo less, you've got to find a shampoo that really holds in the moisture of your natural oils without stripping your hair of harsh detergents like most of the ones on the market. I'm a little late to the game but this shampoo has changed my life. I cannot describe to you how soft it makes my hair. It's fantastic and the scent is heavenly. 

That's my beauty scoop.
