Happy Thursday Lovers! I’m excited to switch things up today and share a little beauty post with ya’ll! I am always on the hunt for new beauty products…especially ones that are affordable and can be easily found at local drug stores or major retailers (all of today’s products are available at Target, Walgreens or Sephora)! So let’s get down to it…First up…Olay Regerist Micro-Sculpting Cream! I recently got my first ever Microdermabrasion treatment and the aesthetician (who was horrified by the state of my skin by the way) emphasized the importance of starting young with the proper products to nourish and treat your skin to get it in the best state before it’s too late. I may be 22 but apparently now is the time to combat aging skin before the aging starts…at first I wasn’t on board but after an hour treatment and a lot of convincing…I think I will listen up and start with my aging skin treatments…first off by sticking with the Olay Regenerist line…especially the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream.Not only does it reduce the sight of wrinkles, but it firms skin in just a few days and helps your skin look 10 years younger in the matter of weeks…top rated, featured in countless beauty mags and plus I’m a fan…if that didn’t sell ya on this lightweight creamy product yet…I don’t know what will 😉 Maybe the fact that it retails for under $25 will help too…
Now that we know what to use on our face to combat aging skin let me introduce to you my skin saver…a product that deals with my biggest issue year round…blemishes and acne. The Body Shop has come up with a pocket sized solution to help reduce the appearance of blemishes in a matter of hours without using harsh chemicals that typically dry out your skin or cause negative side effects. I LOVE this Body Shop Tea Tree Blemish Gel (I may or may not have it on me daily in my cosmetic bag).
After getting rid of your blemishes it’s time to bring a little attention to your lips…with Clinique Matte Lipstick. I love any lipstick that is matte and especially a lipstick that doesn’t feel dry or one that needs to be re-applied every half hour…this Clinique Long Lasting Soft Matte Lipstick has long lasting in it’s name and feels like a lightweight gloss or lip balm…I’ve been wearing this daily even if it is just to run errands.
It’s no secret that I absolutely LOVE nail polish and I am
slightly addicted to manicures…and by slightly I mean definitely. I get my nails done minimum once a week and I always love trying new colors and brands. My long standing go to brand has been Essie, but when I saw this new brand ‘Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics‘ in my Glam Beauty package sent to me from Mode Media I right away A) fell in love with the name of the brand…hello ‘Obsessive + Compulsive’ describe me all too well according to my mother 😉 & B) these polishes are 100% Vegan + Cruelty-Free…now that’s pretty awesome for a nail polish!
Now for the finishing touches…fabulous hair and a delicious scent. I always want simple and easy hair products to spray on wet or dry hair that add volume or a little style with low maintenance and who would of thought Target would sell my ideal product, ‘Charles Worthington Volume & Bounce Thicken & Full 3D Boosting Creme‘. Spray and go…nothing complicated there. It adds bounce, shine and volume without that ‘hard’ or ‘crunchy’ feeling…ladies you know exactly what I am referring to…
