1. DR. DENNIS GROSS SKINCARE Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peel Pads – love these! Great for exfoliating and keeping your skin fresh.
2. SLIP Large Slipsilk Scrunchies – I love using scrunchies, especially at night-time for sleep. These are easy on your hair and less damaging that regular hair ties.
3. DRUNK ELEPHANT Virgin Marula Oil Antioxidant Face Oil – I love this product. My skin tends to get really dry in the winter, especially when I use retinol cream at night. This oil really hydrates my skin and prevents dryness.
4. SLIP Silk Pillowcase – I’ve been using a silk pillowcase for a few months now. I’ve noticed that my hair doesn’t get as unruly and frizzy and I can go longer between washes. Also, these pillowcases are soft on your skin which makes me feel like I’m preventing wrinkles!
5. DRUNK ELEPHANT C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum – I’ve been using this product for a while now and it really brightens your skin! I couldn’t recommend vitamin C serums (this product!) more. It works wonders for brightening and evening out skin tone.
6. CHARLOTTE TILBURY The Gift of Pillow Talk Lips – I just bought this lip set and I’m OBSESSED. The color and formula is amazing. This is my new go-to nude lipstick shade, forever and always.
7. BEAUTYBIO GloPro Microneedling Regeneration Tool – More recently, I’ve read a lot on microneedling and how it really helps boost collagen. At this point, I’ll try anything! This tool is a bit on the pricier side, but it has great reviews. On my wish list!
8. LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask – I love this sleeping lip mask, it’s super hydrating. I use it every night before bed. Plus, this limited edition ‘mint chocolate chip’ flavor is perfect for the Holiday season.
9. BEAUTYBIO Bright Eyes Sleep Set – I’ve been eyeing these eye masks for a while (all puns intended) and have yet to try them. On my list!
10. NYX PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP Shimmer Down Pigment in the color Platinum – Use this highlighter on the inner corners of your eyes to really brighten your eyes and make the whites of your eyes pop. This is one of my all time favorite makeup tips/tricks. And, at this price point, you can’t go wrong.
11. BEIS The Cosmetic Bag – love this cosmetic bag. On my list!
12. DRUNK ELEPHANT T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial Mask – I love, love, love this mask. It makes my skin look SO clear and makes it feel baby soft.
13. IGK Antisocial Overnight Bond-Building Dry Hair Mask – I’ve been working really hard this year on getting my hair to healthy place. The heat I apply using various tools really causes a lot of damage. I love this hair mask as it has really helped restore my dry, damaged locks.
