Top 5 Products for Glowing Skin

Top 5 Products for Glowing Skin

Welcome back! Today I’m sharing my top 5 products for glowing skin- which is perfect for the upcoming summer months! As it gets warmer outside, I like to put less and less makeup products on my face, and try to go a bit more natural. However, I still want to have glowing, smooth skin, so these products are my go-to’s to achieve natural look while still looking radiant!

Drunk Elephant T.L.C Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum.

This one can be a bit pricey, like most of the Drunk Elephant products. BUT it’s so worth it in my opinion. After using this serum for a few months I have noticed that my pores are basically non existent and it makes my makeup go on significantly smoother. It’s great for evening out your skin tone, providing the perfect base for glowing skin.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Cleanser

This is one of my favorite drugstore cleansers. It makes your skin feel incredibly soft and brightens up your complexion. If you have any kind of dry skin, you’ll love this cleanser because it won’t leave your skin feeling super tight and uncomfortable. But even if you have combo skin, you’ll still love this hydrating, glowy face wash that leaves your skin feeling, and looking amazing.

Ren Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic

If you’re looking for a new toner, you should definitely try this one. You get a good amount for your money, and it does an amazing job at gently exfoliating your skin while leaving it soft and glowing after. The natural ingredients work together to smooth your complexion, and give you a radiant finish.

Sephora Collection Ulta Glow Serum

I love putting this stuff on before my makeup- it truly makes you have a lit-from-within glow. It’s not heavy or super oily, and melts into your skin super fast so you can apply makeup right after. This serum is great for all skin types, and as well as give you a natural glow, will also even out your skin tone and help reduce fine lines and wrinkles (so how can you go wrong)

Pixi Rose Glow Face Mist

If you haven’t tried a Pixi face mist yet, you need to go to your local target and try one immediately. You honestly can’t go wrong with any of them, but this is one of my favorites (it’s tied for first with the Pixi Milky Hydrating Mist). The fresh rose scent makes you feel like you’re in a spa, while it moisturizes, plumps, and helps brighten your skin. I love using this at night right before I go to bed, or in the morning right before I apply my makeup.

How to Get Soft, Shiny Hair

How to Get Soft, Shiny Hair

Welcome back! I feel like I’ve been trying for years to find products that give me just-left-the-salon type hair. You know, soft, flowy, beautiful, effortless…..WELL I have finally found a collection of products that I think get you one step closer to achieving perfect hair.

Ghost Verb Oil

I’ve tried a lot of different hair oils, and this is by far the best. The lightweight formula leaves your hair soft and can smooth any frizz or fly aways you have without being overly greasy. This is my favorite finishing touch after I style my hair.

Olaplex Bond Smoother

Only one word can describe this product-amazing. You can use this on damp or dry hair, and it makes your hair feel like you’ve had a keratin treatment. What’s even better is that you only need a small amount so the bottle will last you forever.

Moroccan Oil Hydrating Styling Cream

A very similar product to Olaplex, but still necessary. I love using both, especially when I’m heat styling my hair. My hair is super prone to dryness, so it could use all the help it can get when I’m putting hot tools on it. It also smells amazing so always a nice added bonus.

It’s a 10 Miracle Leave in Product

I’ve been using this product since I was about 14, and it’s hands down the best leave in conditioner I’ve ever used. It has 10 benefits (hence the name) and it’s such an easy one-and-done type product, especially if you’re in a rush. I’m currently using the Walmart alternative, which is basically the exact same thing at a fraction of the price, so that’s a win too.

And that’s it! I hope these products can serve as good recommendations for any of you who are looking for softy, shinier hair! What are your favorite go-to hair care products?

Winter Skincare for Dry Skin

Winter Skincare for Dry Skin

Even though it’s March, it’s still about 18 degrees on a daily basis here in New Jersey so I still find myself considering it winter. I don’t know about you, but my skin gets actually bone dry in the winter- picture dry, flaky, red skin on a daily basis (I didn’t say it’d be a pretty picture). Having dry skin in the winter time is the actual worst, but through a long process of trial and error I have found some holy grail products that make the winter a little bit more bearable on my skin.

Aveeno Stress Relieving Moisturizing Body Lotion

Aveeno products are some of the best when it comes to sensitive skin, and in the winter, they’re my go to for body lotion. I love the stress relief version because it smells like lavender and makes me feel like I’m kinda sorta maybe at a spa (?) and not just in my bathroom. This is also great because I refuse to take anything less than a scalding hot shower so my skin definitely needs some TLC after basically burning it off.

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid Serum

If you have dry skin, or just want your skin to have a little bit more bounce and suppleness, give this serum a try. At under $7, it’s a perfect supplement to any existing skincare routine you have, or a good place to start if you don’t want to commit to buying that expensive serum you saw Kim Kardashian use. I also love using this a primer in the morning before I put on my makeup to provide the perfect base to smooth over any dry patches I may.

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream

I love using this moisturizer during any time of the year, but during the winter is my favorite. It’s so lightweight yet extremely moisturizing that it sinks right into your skin immediately. No greasy feel, no weird overpowering fragrance, just a simple moisturizer that gets the job done. Also, another great alternative for a two-in-one primer/moisturizer before you put on your makeup.

Laneige Lavender Sleeping Mask

Soooo I only discovered this product a little over a month ago but it is a MUST have. I repeat, a must have. Everyone needs this mask in their life. It smells amazing, it feels like a canvas of silk on your skin, and a little goes a long way so you’ll definitely get your money’s worth. I put this mask on before I go to sleep, give it approximately 5 seconds to sink into my skin and then done. It’s so easy to use, and when you wake up in the morning your skin will look and feel rejuvenated and softer than it has in months.
