We all know I love my Budget Beauty finds, but I’m also a big fan of high quality, timeless, brands and their products. Clarins is one of those brands that I love for both skincare and makeup. I always find myself at the Clarins in my local Nordstrom, and I’ve been introduced to, and purchasing, a lot of their products recently. This product, the Hydra-Essentiel Bi-Phase Serum, however, I was lucky enough to snag through Influenster! If you’re unfamiliar with Influenster, check out what it is, and how you can join, here!
Using a serum during both your AM and PM skincare routine is key for keeping skin nourished with great vitamins and antioxidants, hydrated, and bright. My skin has changed so much over the past couple of years and I’ve noticed I’ve been a bit on the drier side recently. So, I’ve been on the hunt for some hydrating products to help give my skin the boost it needs to stay bright and nourished. The Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Bi-Phase Serum has been an amazing addition to my PM skincare routine, especially for my rosacea.
In past posts I’ve mentioned my partnership with the Derma E Squad, and I’ve been able to try out so many of their awesome products. Catch up on my other posts featuring Derma E below, and get ready to read why I love their Rejuvenating Sage & Lavender Face Oil!
I know people can be super apprehensive about face oil, especially if you have oily skin. It makes sense to be a bit nervous about putting an oil on your face if you feel as though you struggle with having an oily face! I’m here to tell you not to be afraid, facial oil can actually be great for oily skin, and is beneficial for all skin types.
Months ago I was so appreciative to Mad Hippie sending me a nice little package in the mail. I wrote about, and have since used up, the Vitamin C Serum, which I highly recommend, it’s absolutely amazing! Today I’m here to review another Mad Hippie product, their Hydrating Nutrient Mist– which honesty has mixed online reviews. Let’s get into it…
A couple of weeks ago I posted about the Derma E toner I’ve been using daily, read about it, here. Today, I’m going to be featuring yet another Derma E product! Full disclosure, I’m a part of the Derma E Squad, I have lots of products from them that I’ll be reviewing on here. The good news is, I’m loving all of them & I cannot wait to continue to share the brand with y’all!
The Advanced Peptide & Collagen Moisturizer has been a lifesaver for me during this wacky D.C. weather. One week we’re feeling the polar vortex. The next week it’s 60 degrees. That’s a huge change for our skin, and you need some great products to keep the extremes at bay. This moisturizer is ready for the fight, it’s filled with peptides, which are great at combating wrinkles and boosting collagen production.
If you know me, you know I’m obsessed with a good face mask. Guess what I’m also obsessed with a good lip mask, and this Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask has been a life savior this winter. Keeping on my vitamin C and antioxidant kick, this product is packed with both, which help to keep lips soft and hydrated.
In December I started to use Derma E’s Essentials line daily as my skincare routine. The Derma E team so graciously sent me products from the Essentials line, and I’ve been spending lots of time reading up on the products and really testing them out. I’ll be featuring a new Derma E product every Monday for Budget Beauty for the next several weeks. I’m excited to share this brand with you, I love their products!
I recently reached out to natural skincare brand Mad Hippie, my bestie told me great things about their signature Vitamin C Serum, and was thrilled when they sent me over a bottle to try out. I feel like I’ve seen Mad Hippie everywhere lately, the brand has a super fun feel, and pride themselves on their ingredients and conservation efforts.
The first Face Mask Monday of 2019 is going to Glam Glow’s trademarked BubbleSheet Oxygenating Deep Cleanse Mask…say that 5 times fast.
This mask is a tad different than your average sheet mask, because it’s a cleanser mask, not a serum, so you do need to wash it off after use. Don’t let the little bit of extra work deter you though- this is a must have if you’re looking to clear up a break out, or if you’ve hd a rough couple of days and need a total skin reset.
If you are unfamiliar with the Glam Glow brand, take a minute to read through their About Us page. I’ve listened to a few podcasts with the founder, Shannon, and I love how this brand has come to be a staple, and a huge lifesaver, for so many people. I’ve used a few of their masks, mostly large samples, and I’ve loved everything I’ve tried. It was my first time using one of their sheet masks though, and just as I figured, I thought it was great!
Happy Monday! Can you believe it’s already December?! 2019 is right around the corner, and to be honest, it’s kinda freaking me out. Anyway, I digress. I’m here today to share a great Budget Beauty product, and excellent stocking stuffer, the Simple Hydrating Booster.
Simple is a great skincare brand that stays true to its name. If you have sensitive skin, or strongly dislike any scented skincare products, Simple is def for you. I’m a huge fan of their micellar water, and now I’ve been hooked on this hydrating booster too!
I’m a huge fan of Good Morning America, I watch about the first 15 minutes every morning before leaving for work, so I get caught up on current affairs, and that’s about it. One thing Good Morning America is known for is their Deals & Steals segment, where brands sell products at deeply discounted prices, with a promo code, just for GMA watchers. My Mom is a huge fan of this segment, and thought of me when GMA featured the brand Tokyo Milk one morning. She got me a bunch of Tokyo Milk goodies, shoutout to my momma, and I’m taking the time today and tomorrow to review them for you all! I think these products are perfect for gift giving this holiday season, they’re luxurious products that don’t break the bank.
I had never heard of Tokyo Milk before my Mom mentioned them to me, so I was, of course, excited to try out a new brand. Tokyo Milk is a brand by Margot Elena, and upon visiting the website, I noticed that they’re affiliated with brands I’ve seen at Anthropologie. So, to me, that means they’re pretty darn good. Tokyo Milk has a great Indie boutique vibe, and the packaging is awesome. It’s mostly a perfume brand, and can be found at Sephora and Morphe, but I’m focusing on reviewing some of their moisturizers today, they’re much more in the gift giving price range!
