I never use to be into beauty products—besides hair products!—until I started working at a fashion and beauty magazine. I have the chance to work with two amazing beauty bloggers who have inspired me and taught me about products and how to use them. Thank goodness for those two! Today i'm sharing five of my favorite beauty products for the winter and why.
I've given up on tanning in beds because it's not good for my skin and well, I don't have time to. This product has saved my tan during the winter months. It's easy to use and stays on really well. It gives your skin an instant glow with light-reflecting micropearls that add a highlighting shimmer to your skin creating a slimming effect. The best part is, it's only $10.99!
A Clarisonic might be an initial investment but it's completely worth it! I'm sorry but the cheaper competitors just don't compare. The Clarisonic removes makeup six times better than traditional methods. It also clears pores and reduces the appearance of pore size, cleanses so thoroughly that skincare products absorb better and creates noticeably healthier looking skin. My mom, boyfriend, best friend and I all use it to reduce fine lines and exfoliate for smoother, healthier skin. They offer brushes for all different skin types: normal, sensitive, delicate, deep pore, acne, and your body. Buy it, you'll love it!
I just started using this over Thanksgiving and I'm in love. Makeup blogger Ivy Boyd couldn't of said it better herself, "Before you paint a wall, you prime it, right? You want a smooth, even surface for your paint to glide over so that it looks it’s best. Well, your face is a lovely canvas and it needs primed before foundation too!" She's kinda of makeup genius! This product goes on so silky smooth. It preps skin for flawless foundation application and instantly brightens your complexion with a healthy-looking, luminous glow. I love a good glow.
I first used this product when I got it as sample from my BFF when she worked at Estée Lauder. It was instant love and my mom loves it too! It's the best soothing moisture treat for your lips and in the winter, there's nothing more I hate them dry, cracked lips. This formula has vitamins C and E, shea butter and other naturally derived moisturizers help hydrate, smooth and soothe lips. I wear it plain, under lipstick as a moisturizing base coat, or overnight as an intensive moisture treatment.
