Stay Good Turmeric Facial Elixir
Stay Good Turmeric Facial Elixir
My current favorite product from Yellow Beauty is their elixir. I actually can’t stop using it; It’s an oil, but I use in place of a serum too (after an essence and before a cream). It’s so light and so rich, my skin just drinks it up. . . . or

Peter Thomas Roth Clarifying Liquid
Peter Thomas Roth Clarifying Liquid
Hands down one of my favorite products for battling breakouts/acne/blemishes. This is @peterthomasroth ’s PRO Strength 10% PHA Exfoliating Clarifying Liquid. It’s a leave on, daily exfoliator that has glycolic acid (AHA), salicylic acid (BHA), and Glyconolacton (PHA) among other ingredients. I have been using this for about a month or two, and I’m very impressed with the results it delivers in a short amount of time. The first thing I noticed is that not only does it help to clarify the skin, it also helps to calm and bring down the irritation of the current breakouts. My breakouts tend to become red and irritated no matter if I touch them or not. When using this product, I noticed that the next morning, the redness of those breakouts would go down significantly. As far as its ability at clearing the blemishes, this product is the MVP. When my skin was breaking out like crazy few weeks ago, it took about three to four consecutive days of using this exfoliant (at night) before all the breakouts disappeared or greatly diminished in size. What I like about this product is that it doesn’t bring the pimples to the surface/to head, it simply flattens and makes them disappear. If you’re experiencing stubborn breakouts, and $58 is within your budget, I highly recommend you give this a try. I try a lot of product on day to day basis, and right now this is my favorite one for when I’m breaking out. . . . gifted

Flora and Bast Serum
Flora and Bast Serum
@floraandbast is a new brand that I recently discovered. They have a huge range of CBD infused products, from face creams, to body serums to face serums and more. My favorite from them, and the one I’ve tried first is the age adapting facial serum. What surprised me about this serum right away is how it feels on the skin. It felt thicker than a normal serum, but not as heavy or greasy as an oil; a perfect balance between the two. It feels really nourishing and super hydrating, and gives the skin a beautiful, natural glow. I especially enjoy using this serum right now that it’s cold because of how hydrating it is. I’ve noticed that since I started using this serum, the redness around my cheeks has greatly subsided. I’m currently trying some of their other products, and I’m really excited to share my experience with them as well! . . . gifted

Perk Up Dry shampoo
Perk Up Dry shampoo
I think the perk up dry shampoo from @amika might be my current favorite hair product. I just used it yesterday, and within minutes, it transformed my greasy, third day hair into bouncy, voluminous, not-greasy mane. I paired it with their dry conditioner, and I think I can skip hair wash for a few more days! I try not to wash my hair too often, and these two will be my trusted companions on that goal. . . . . gifted

Best Dry Shampoo
Best Dry Shampoo
Probably the best dry shampoo I’ve tried. I love how it is in an aerosol bottle, which makes it super easy to apply and spread the product. I also enjoy that it has the signature, floral @amika scent. My hair always smells so fresh when I use this dry shampoo. Have you used this one? If not, which one is your favorite dry shampoo? . . . gifted

A potent serum with five Korean herbs
A potent serum with five Korean herbs
Sulwhasoo - First Care Activating Serum This serum is “a potent cocktail of five Korean herbs” that hydrates, nourishes and firms the skin, as well as help all the products applied on top to absorb better. It can be used either as an essence, right after washing your face, or as a serum on top of an essence. I use it both ways, depending on my mood, and it works great either way! The lightweight, watery texture allows it to be both a hydrating essence or a lightweight serum. It comes out brown/dark orange, feels very light, more like an essence than a serum. It has a beautiful, botanical scent, and makes every application feel like a spa session. I’ve noticed that my skin has become more radiant and even toned since I started using this product. . .

I recently ran out of my two FAVORITE body care products that I most definitely WILL be repurchasing in 2020. These are the SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Bum Bum Cream & the SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian 4 Play Moisturizing Shower Cream-Gel which are basically worth shedding tears for when you run out, they’re that good. The smell is amazing & lasts all day long. I get so many compliments on just the lotion, I’ll forget to put perfume on!! The cream is so thick & moisturizing as well as the shower cream! They both smell the same & adding them to your body/shower routine will have you smelling like Sol de Janeiro all day long!🌞✨🌴

Eye Makeup Remover
Eye Makeup Remover
This squalane oil from Biossance is absolutely amazing for removing any and all eye make up; mascara, eyeshadow, eyeliner, glitter, it’s all gone. Other than remove the make up, it also hydrates the skin very well. It’s also super gentle on the eyes and melts everything so quickly, you don’t have to rub too hard or for too long. The value is also great. As I said, it melts everything so easily, you don’t need to use a lot, so the bottle will last you a long time. Highly suggest if you’re looking for a great eye makeup remover.BIOSSANCE - 100% Sugarcane Squalane

The SAND&SKY - Australian Pink
The SAND&SKY - Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask is marketed as a mask targeting pores, blemishes and oiliness for every skin type. While I think this is a really nice face mask to wear, I can’t say it’s really effective. I’ve used this mostly when I had breakouts and it hasn’t shown any evidence that it speeds up the healing process or reduces the breakout size. It’s different than other clay masks in my opinion because it doesn’t leave your face feeling overly dry and it’s fairly easy to remove. My face feels tight after wearing but still soft. $49 is steep for a mask in my opinion. The mask comes with a brush applicator which I love and use for other masks as well. The brush helps you apply a thin layer, which is all you need. So yes, this does last long but I personally will not repurchase. I haven’t tried a clay mask that really helped with breakouts. If you have a recommendation, let me know below! P.S. this mask has awesome reviews on Sephora, so if you’re really interested in trying.. go for it! Sand & Sky has a clean at Sephora stamp ✔️
