currently loving: the beauty product edition

I'm certainly no beauty product guru but I do my fair share of research sampling and high/low product mixing so when I discover something new, I can't wait to share. And share. And share some more. Since I'm sure my mom and officemate are sick of hearing me rave about my new favorite life changing products, I'm thought I should probably share with you!

Baby Lips Dr. Rescue (in Just Peachy) - $3.49
As I've documented, winter is seemingly never ending (insert crying cat emojii here) and my lips are so darn dry. I can't apply this lip balm fast enough. It's uber soothing and the peachy color gives a great nude hue.

Beauty Protector Protect & Oil - $25.95
I got my hair colored a few weeks back to brighten up my tresses before spring (if it ever comes!) and my stylist used balayage highlights rather than the foil highlights I'm used to. I'm loving the look but between the bleach and my love affair with my curling iron, my ends are screaming for some tender love and care. I've been using this product daily to condition the ends and am loving how much shine and gloss it also adds. Don't you worry if you have fine hair like me-- it's super lightweight so it won't make your hair feel greasy!

Sally Hansen Insta Dri top coat - $4.49
My old roommie/bff has sworn by this forever. Quick drying, high shine and little chipping? I'm sold. Don't make the mistake of splurging on the Essie option like I did. This one is half the price and twice as good.

Clarisonic Mia - $125.00
I wasn't sure this was worth the splurge. I used my mom's a few times while I was home for the holidays but wasn't convinced it was making that much of a difference. I picked one up on sale at Ulta in January and it truly has reinvented my skin. My skin is smoother, less oily, has more even tone and so much brighter. I use it twice daily and it has made a huge difference!

Vaseline - $2.49
Vaseline is the cheapest eye make up remover on the market! And it makes my lashes fuller to boot! A little goes a long way so you should be fine picking up a travel sized jar to test things out.

Dr. Brandt pores no more - $45.00
You guys, I could not be more obsessed. I have unsightly pores and it is not cute. I feel like I have tried every pore minimizer in the book and never truly fell in love until now. Pores no more is incredible. Really truly, my pores have appeared to vanish and my skin hasn't looked better. It also has a light tint so I can use it instead of BB cream or powder on the weekends. It is a little pricey but a little goes a long way. I've also heard great things about L'Oreal Youth Code Pore Vanisher so I may be trying that next!

PS- The scrapbooking font in my graphic looks so much like my handwritting! It is a little weird to see!


  1. I need to try that top coat!! I always smudge no matter what so anything that will make my nails dry faster I am totally sold!!

  2. I'm always on the lookout for new products to try and love reading lists like this :) I'd love to try the clarisonic mia, but just can't justify the price tag!

  3. Coconut oil is a great alternative to Vaseline for eye makeup remover, and doesn't contain petroleum. :-)
