my absolute ride or die 🙌
Glossier. - Balm Dotcom I have severely dry lips and I keep these on me AT ALL TIMES! In my car, gym bag, night stand, makeup bag, etc. My lips become extremely moisturized and supple after application. I never feel the need to reapply after several hours. I also love using this for my stubborn flyaways and to prep my lips before lipstick!✨ My skin is also sensitive, so I have to say that the birthday cake flavor has irritated my lips. There is glitter in the balm and it’s made my lips feel itchy and red. Other than that, I love every single flavor 🙌
Nightly routine saved my Dry skin 🌙🌙
These have saved my skin. These are great for my sensitive skin and has helped prevent dry flaky patches The glossier milky jelly cleanser feels amazing on the skin. It doesn’t foam up which is great since it feels like a moisturizer. Glossier. - Milky Jelly Cleanser conditioning face wash After washing my face I love using the ordinary hyaluronic acid, it helps keep my skin moist. When you first apply it it soaks into your skin quick so make sure you follow with moisturizer immediately. Pro tip✨✨: make sure you pat it into your skin instead of rubbing it in. It prevents wrinkles and goes into the skin evenly. The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 I follow with the kiehls ultra facial cream and it’s my holy grail. On initial application it feels amazing. It’s so soft and it’s not super heavy or thick. I’m almost out of this and I will definitely buy another one. Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream I apply the drunk elephant f-balm as my last step for the night and it locks all the moisture in without my face looking greasy. It’s my holy grail. DRUNK ELEPHANT - F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial Mask Lips need some loving too so I love using the glossier balm dot calm in mint. It feels amazing and the scent is very delicious. I am obsessed with mint scents. Glossier. - Balm Dotcom Also make sure you drink lots of water everyday, it’s amazing for your skin and also for your health. Yes everyone says you should do it but once I make the switch to drinking more water everyday I definitely see the difference. It takes time so you gotta do it all your life.
Favorite affordable products to add to your routine that really work
Summer is coming, it’s nearly shorts and tee weather. I have noticed how dry and sad my skin is, horribly dull-looking with flaky patches; and this, combined with the fact I’m broke, is making me really depressed. So I decided to do something about it. Taking some time out of my day to find some products that really work and won’t break the bank wasn’t easy. I read all the reviews and ordered these products online and within a few days I could see the results! They were so good I had to share them with you. Face - Caudalie Beauty Elixir This product is amazing, it really hits dry skin hard! Do your usual cleansing routine and then add it at the end before your makeup. Caudalie is known for making hard-working products at an affordable price and this is no exception. It smells amazing, feels like silk on the skin and the result is radiant, glowing, plump skin. Suits all types of skin that need hydration and the best effect is that it tightens the skin, making you look more awake - even younger. Love it! Great price to just $12 for 30ml on Amazon. Nuxe Ultra nourishing lip balm Winter has really taken its toll on my face and lips. My lips looked horrible, dry, and cracked. Something needed to be done, fast! Enter Nuxe Ultra nourishing lip balm. Massage this balm into the lips; its gorgeous thick and creamy texture gave me instant relief. You can also use it as an overnight mask to wake up with smooth, nourished lips. Seriously good at $10, you can’t go wrong. Caudalie hand and nail cream When getting my nails done recently the manicurist commented on how dry and sore my hand looked, and she gave me a great tip. Caudalie hand and nail cream is brilliant. It nourishes, protects, and repairs dry hands. It is not greasy at all and smells amazing; a delicate perfume of musk, neroli, and ginger - seriously good, and at only $9.50 you can’t lose! If anyone had told me I could sort out my dry skin for just over $30 I would not have believed them, but it’s true and you can save more money by ordering the bigger sizes. So what are you waiting for? After all those summer cocktail
This beauty elixir has not worked well for me either, it causes me burning when applied. Caudalie is a clean brand that uses essential oils in some of its products. Many people don’t recommend essential oils for topical use as they can cause irritation, photosensitivity, etc. TBH I really believe that the ingredients (essential oils) of this product are the cause of irritation or maybe alcohol. It smells delicious and many people recommend it but it didn't work for me. CAUDALIE - Beauty Elixir
This foundation is stunning! The packaging is so heavy and high-quality and the texture is smooth and creamy leaving the skin looking flawless every time. It’s so pretty on the skin! It creates a nice natural look on the skin — I’d say about a light/medium coverage. I’d definitely recommend it! lilah b. - Marvelous Matte Crème Foundation
Let’s get straight to the point today, cause i am ready to RAVE about these products 👊🏻 💖verb everything is $16 on their website and i cannot live without their dry shampoo & ghost oil. my hair has never felt better and i’m not a big haircare person. 💖notpot tbh when i first got these, i was v skeptical if they were worth the insta hype. well four bottles later, i can officially confirm they are. i pop two to three (whoops) before bed and have never slept better 💖lacunalady the face food mask ingredients are green sea clay, spirulina, chlorella, aloe vera, and carrot powder. that’s IT. i love how amazing this mask feels, smells, and works for my skin. the antioxidants pack a serious punch 💖knours ALL MY LADIES WITH HORMONAL ACNE THIS ONE IS FOR YOU!!! knours designs their products specifically for your cycle. i’m starting my cycle this week so i use knours to keep the hormonal acne at bay and it WORKS. 💖typeadeodorant i’ve never found a natural deodorant that works. native and farmacy gave me HORRIBLE rashes on my under arms. when type a reached out i was like listen, these don’t work for me. they listened to me and walked me through ingredient by ingredient of their product. you guys... i found the ONE natural deodorant that works and doesn’t give me a rash. HG status. 💖lilah has quickly become one of my fave beauty brands. their motto is with less, you are more - really gives you the natural lit from within glow. 💖flesh foundation stick is literally one of my favorite product ever. the formula is AMAZING and i use it as a concealer to cover up acne scars/zits
Love the hydrated and healthy glow that all of these products give me. I know I've already raved about the Megababe, cloud paints & CoverFx blush. But Mac Face and Body is truly a holy grail. If you haven't tried this foundation yet, I 10/10 recommend Xx ❤️
Soft peach blush
This blush is gorgeoussssss They have a nice shade range on these and the packaging is to die for!! Such high quality and a unique shape. The texture is matte but has a bit of creamy consistency to it-it blends out super easily and the shimmer shade adds such a gorgeous sheen on the skin I absolutely love this product! Can’t live without it. I’d definitely recommend. 10/10COVER FX - Monochromatic Blush Duo

Glossier - Worth It?
Glossier. - Priming Moisturizer This moisturizer is just a normal moisturizer. It feels nice on the skin, doesn’t have a scent which I can appreciate. However, I didn’t feel like it was worth the price. Don’t get me wrong, I love the brand and I am in love with a few of their products (cloud paint, perfume, the balm dot com). This was a nice little thing to try, but I didn’t find that this did anything more for my skin. If I am spending more than $20 on a moisturizer, I want to see some positive changes. This doesn’t have SPF, and I think it just moisturizes my skin but nothing else - I have combo skin. I don’t think this is a good product for people with dry skin, doesn’t give you a boost of hydration like some other moisturizers out there. The positive about this is when I use my Kosas Face Oil, this moisturizer does play nice with it! Additionally, the packaging is cute and travel friendly. It’s not bulky and is very nice to display! Glossier. - Futuredew Again, this product was overhyped for me. It’s very pretty, has a pale pink color, and packaging is unique since it’s holographic. But, I do think this product leans more as a makeup item than a skincare item. When I used this serum, I felt like I looked very greasy/oily, but it could be that it’s because I have combination skin. It also never fully dried down on me and was very tacky, making it hard to apply anything else over it without patching. When I use a product marketed as a skincare item, I want to see positive results and I just did not with this. It might work as a soft highlighter for those with drier skin. I personally prefer the NARS Tinted Glow Booster as a highlight though. I will not be repurchasing this in the future.
My three daily moisturizers! CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin With Pump I love this one. Not too pricey, and keeps my combination skin moisturized all day! I usually use this one more in the winter because it is pretty thick. Glossier. - Priming Moisturizer I love this one because of how light it is and feels on your skin, and you can layer it to get the moisture you need for your skin! I wouldn’t give it 5 stars just because I don’t feel it does that great of a job to prime my face for foundation. Neutrogena - Facial Moisturizer I started using this one every day under my CeraVe about 5 months ago! I love it because it gives a nice dewy look to your skin all day and also effectively protects from the sun! This is a great one to use on its own during the summer.
Hello everyone! Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy, sending lots of love to y’all! Wanted to share my spring makeup favorites! I’ve been using more pastel shimmers for eyeshadows lately. Moisture and glow are huge factors to my current routine. Love mymatcha for extra dry spots and Glamglow brings a natural glow. Cloud paint is my ride or die but milk makeups glow oil adds dimension without making texture a problem! I’m quickly running out of my fresh lip balm, it’s tinted smells amazing and moisture lasts forever!!
Todays details 🥀 🥀 Kosås Tinted Face Oil shade 01 I am really loving this for everyday it wears beautifully and has a really natural dewy finish 🥀 Glossier Stretch Concealer shade Light this is not high coverage by any means but it does add a bit of extra coverage to the skin and doesn’t look cakey perfect for any dry patches 🥀 Lilah b Divine Duo shade b. true this is the perfect everyday shade for me this formula is amazing and wears really nicely throughout the day 🥀 Glossier Boy Brow shade Blond this is so quick and easy just to throw in my brows and not think about it I love the ease of use of this product for everyday 🥀 Glossier Lash Slick the perfect mascara for everyday it’s on the natural side but still noticeable and doesn’t flake or smudge 🥀 LOC Liquid Shimmer Shadow shade Eclipse really pretty shimmery rose gold color easy to blend all over the lid for a little extra definition
This product is really nice! I love the packaging and the texture is nice and light (not super thick) and definitely not oily at all! It blends out/dries down quickly to make the skin look hydrated and primed before makeup. It’s great! I’d definitely recommend it Glossier. - Priming Moisturizer
Some favourites in the sun! These are some items for quick easy application. The lilah.b Virtuous Veil concealer is such a lovely creamy concealer, I am really enjoying it. I have been obsessed with the kosas Tropic Equinox Cream Blush and highlight, I reach for this so much, what I love about it is when I reapply sunscreen and touch up it reapply nicely. ILIA Sheer Tinted moisteriser is what it says nice and sheer! frank body, Love their balms, I have used the plain one on a bit of irritation and it helps! Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!
Kosas-Color & Light Crème Blush
My spring makeup looks
These are my everyday “natural” makeup look, I prefer light things on my face that just make it look more natural and beautiful and all this stuff is tested tried and true finally! It took me awhile to find the best stuff for what I wanted to look like, I will say Kosas lip balm is amazing but the cream blush and highlighter is not my favorite, then again nothing compares to glossier am I right?? They always knock it out of the park. And when I’m going for a little more noticeable makeup then I pull out my milk make up eyeshadow cream 5/5 cause that baby stays on alllllllll day long with no creasing, and yah girls got some oily eyelids too. Also their kush mascara is beautiful Just thought I would share the products I love and what I will be repurchasing when I run out, what are some of your guys favorite tried and true products? #springmakeuplooks
Glossier.-Cloud Paint Duo
Excited about NY, going to prep my skin up tonight 🥰, not 100% sure what mask I will use. So I have had glossier for a couple of weeks now, so have had a good play with the products. First off the packaging is spot on! My opinions on the products. 🔸Cloud paint: Really like these! Really pigmented and apply really well and last a while, even on my slightly oily summer face. The one I have been reaching for is “dusk” which is a brownish nude, and is so perfect for everyday. I apply with my fingers then buff out with an eco tools stripping brush. 🔸Balm Dotcom: These are pretty good and I like them but I wouldn’t say they are must have, I have a variety of balms that work just as well. 🔸Boybrow: love this! I have been growing my brows out and using a brow serum to help with the growth as I over plucked in my 20s and also lost some hair when I was pregnant. This brow gel gives my brows volume and gives me actual boy brows, I could be competing with my husband right now! 🔸Lashslick: Nice mascara for everyday natural look. 🔸Haloscope: In colour quartz. Very Dewy highlighter. I like it but have to be careful when I use it, it can “move” my foundation if I am not careful and if my face is oily it can make it look oilier. So quite like the products, and for the price point they are good! They are perfect for a natural look, and that is their selling point. My favourite is the cloud paints, very pigmented and easy to blend and don’t settle into pores.
