6 Favorite Beauty Products

I had a couple blog posts lined up involving outfits and I meant to take the photos yesterday, however, it poured all day. Today it is also raining, so I'm hoping for a beautiful day tomorrow so I can get these posts out for you all! In the meantime, I put together a few of my current favorite beauty products. Enjoy!!

Garnier SkinActive Clean+Smoothing Makeup Remover  I use to swear by these makeup removing wipes. My face can be very sensitive to product at times so it was hard for me to find something to use on my face. These are amazing though! I know some people say you’re not suppose to use a makeup wipe to remove a full face of makeup but… I do and these do an amazing job of doing so. If you also have sensitive skin and are looking for something new I would highly recommend these.

Yes To Cucumbers Facial Towelettes  If you haven’t tried any of the Yes To products, you have too immediately. I did a previous blog post on one of their lip products, Yes To Coconuts, and it was the first product of the brand I tried. With the amazing results I received from their lip products I decided to try the facemasks and they left my face so smooth and hydrated. After I ran out of my last pack of the Garnier makeup wipes I decided to try these, since I was already loving the brand as is, and safe to say I made a good decision. It’s a lot harder to take things like my mascara and liquid eyeliner off with these, so I’ll have to look into finding something specifically for eye makeup, but I’m definitely going to continue using this product.

Mia 1 Cleansing Brush  I received this for Christmas one year from my mom and at the time it was one of those gifts where I was just like ‘eh, ok.’ I didn’t have acne at the time so I figured there was no use for it. I started breaking out every now and than so I started using it to wash my face and this is seriously the greatest thing to have. Not only does it make my face extremely smooth, but I’ll wash my face with the Mia brush after using my makeup wipes and there’s so much excess makeup that’s left on your face that the brush washes away. Mia brushes are a little pricey, but they’re also sold on QVC where you can pay it off in monthly payments.

Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser  If you’re interested in which product I use with my Mia brush, this is it. I’ve been switching between this product and ProActiv lately, but I always notice a change in my skin when I use Philosophy.

Vaseline Lip Therapy Cocoa Butter  I swear by this lip product. It took me forever to find something that actually helped with my chapped lips so I’d say this is a must-have for the wintertime. If you’re interested in how I use this product, you can check out my blog post on avoiding chapped lips here.


Real Techniques Miracle Sponges  I’m such a huge fan of beauty blenders, especially Real Techniques. I’ve tried foundation brushes before, but with the foundation I use the beauty blender applied it much more evenly and it gives a smooth finish. I recently snagged the miracle sponges pack at Target on a clearance shelf for $5, so I was pretty excited about that. I tried out the mini sponge for applying my concealer and because of it being so small and flexible it was able to apply the makeup better in the corners of my eyes. Go check out the clearance section in the beauty aisle to hopefully snag these for a great deal!
