My Favorite Products of the Season
I’m super excited to share this post because this season I’ve found a lot of really great products. Most of these products I’ve found more recently and some I’ve been using for a while but, I still wanted to share them. Since it’s winter most of these products are hydrating to prevent damage to skin or hair with the cold, dry, air. I have dry skin all year round and these products really help. Some of these products I got as samples from the Sephora subscription box and others I just bought and really liked them. If you love trying new products I definitely suggest getting a subscription to these monthly boxes. If you don’t know how these boxes work they basically send you beauty products (sample sizes and regular) to try in hopes that you will buy more. I currently get the Sephora box and I really like it because they send samples from higher-end brands and ones I shop at a lot so, personally I prefer it. I have also tried Ipsy which carries high and low brands as well as some not as well known brands. I have also heard good things about boxes like Birchbox, glossy box, and glam box. If you want to check them out:
Dr. Jart’s Tiger Grass Cream:
I got this cream in the Sephora box and I didn’t really think I would ever use it but I tried it and I loved it. It hydrates and soothes redness and itching due to dry skin. My skin doesn’t itch when its dry but it defiantly gets very red and irritated. I found this product works on area’s I’m breaking out in. I like to put it on at night before I go to bed because when I wake up my skin looks flawless. I’ve also tried this during the day but I found it doesn’t work as well but I think its mostly because your skin gets more wear during the day then at night. I defiantly recommend this product for anyone who breaks out due to dry skin.
Shea Moisture’s clarifying and hydrating mud masks:
I found these masks a long time ago and I’ve been using them ever since. These masks are really great for sensitive skin, but at first I found the hydrating mask does burn just a little bit but after the first time it stops. I always use the clarifying mask followed by the hydrating mask and it makes my skin super clear and glowing. I sometimes use these masks everyday and I don’t break out or get dry skin because they are very sensitive towards skin. Shea moisture is also a great brand at a great price point, all their products are cruelty free and all natural.
Tarte’s Double duty beauty shape tape contour concealer:
This concealer is already very highly recommended by beauty gurus but I decided to include it anyways. I used to use the Nars creamy radiant concealer (which is still great) until I found this. I’m super pale and I have trouble finding concealer to match my skin tone but this one matches perfectly and feels great on the skin. If you are very pale I definitely suggest checking this concealer out because its amazing! (also I wear the shade fair)
Moroccanoil hair treatment and verb ghost oil:
I added these to together because they work pretty similarly. They are both hair oils I got in a Sephora box. They are great for curly hair because it smoothes frizz really well. I use these a lot because I risk a lot of hair damage due to heat and coloring and they work really well to hydrate and smooth for sleek hair. The moroccan oil is a little heavier but great for thick hair and the verb oil is very light so you barely know its there. I use either depending on how my hair is acting that day.
Clinique pep-start 2- in- 1 exfoliating cleanser:
I got this exfoliator in a Sephora box and really liked. I started using it at the end of the day before I went to bed to get off all my makeup and dirt from the day. I found it helped a lot to control acne and it made my skin glow. I would defiantly recommend this for sensitive skin because it exfoliates without irritating the skin. Also since its a 2-in-1 cleanser its great for carrying with you in your bag so you don’t have to carry two cleansers if your traveling.
