BEAUTY | SAMPLE TO STAPLE
It's been a hot minute since I shared with you all some of my favorite new beauty products. I try a LOT of different things, but only a handful are impressive enough that they become part of my normal routine. Instead of sharing everything I try with you guys here, I just want to share the things that become necessary to me with you! So, with that, here we go!
URBAN DECAY CHILL MAKEUP SETTING SPRAY
I'd never used a makeup setting spray, though I'd heard great things about them (in particular the Urban Decay All Nighter came up repeatedly among my friends as a must-have), so when I received this sample, I was excited to try it - especially given the cooling aspect. Little did I suspect that it would become my favorite part of the morning routine. Finishing off getting ready with this refreshing spritz is so relaxing and invigorating! Not to mention, my makeup doesn't bleed or budge until I take it off intentionally at the end of the day.
FRESH BLACK TEA FIRMING CORSET CREAM
This has replaced my night cream - the cream I was loyal to for well over a decade. I'd tried others, but until the Black Tea Firming Corset Cream, none of them outperformed my oldie. My complexion is more even, my skin tone is brighter, and I wake up with my face looking firmer and more hydrated than before. Love. This. Stuff.
DR BRANDT HYDRO BIOTIC RECOVERY SLEEP MASK
About once a week, I use this instead of my Corset Cream. The minty smell is so refreshing, and with how much drier California is than Houston, my skin needs the weekly boost.
DERMALOGICA BARRIER DEFENSE BOOSTER
This is a new daily addition, and the breakouts I had started to see disappeared when I added this. Living in a So Cal city, the pollution is intense. The Barrier Defense Booster adds a layer of protection, keeping many of those harmful chemicals from touching my skin. I add a drop to my moisturizer every day, and it makes all the difference.
SUPERGOOP! PLAY EVERYDAY SUNSCREEN
Before I met this sunscreen, I had to use at least two layered together and re-applied every hour to keep from burning. Now, I can use just this one and spray every 4 hours or so. Life.Changing. G and I use the spray, and we use the lotion on Evie. None of us has burned since we started using it. Not on Disney days, beach trips, or long backyard pool parties.
LIVINGPROOF DRY VOLUME BLAST
I've been an avid Living Proof PHD Dry Shampoo user for - oh, around 16 months now (#momlife), but had no idea what I was missing before trying the Dry Volume Blast. It's replaced my hair spray completely. My hair has more volume, is touchable, and moves, without losing it's curl. Love, love love.
