Thursday’s Fab Five

DC is hot, hot, hot! No really, it’s been hot af with no rain in sight. Argh. Anyway, here are some of my recent warm weather faves I’ve been reaching for on the reg!

Neutrogena Beach Defense Sunscreen SPF 30, $9

It’s pool & beach season, which means we all need to apply, and reapply, the SPF! This is my favorite sunscreen because it’s spray, so it is easy to apply, and 30 is just enough SPF for me to get a decent tan and not burn. I reapply often especially if I’m in the water a lot, but I love that it doesn’t smell weird or give me any sticky feeling. It’s on sale at Ulta right now, so stock up for the summer! They also have Beach Defense in 70 and 100 SPF if you want to block out all signs of the sun!

Thursday’s Fab Five

Happy Thursday, y’all! I don’t know about you, but 2019 is flying by for me, and it’s a little overwhelming to be honest!! I’ve been super neglectful over here on LLB, but my content calendar is ready to go for May, and I have a ton of new posts coming your way. I figured what better way to get back into the swing of things then with a little Fab Five to brighten up your Friday Eve. The first thing I’ve been loving recently is…

Jade Roller,$32

Everything you read about a jade roller is…absolutely F’ing true. I’m obsessed with my jade roller and it wasn’t until recently that I really started to use it consistently for results. First of all, you can’t beat the relaxing massage feeling you get after a long day at work. It’s amazing. I’ve been using it pretty routinely after applying all of my night serums/ moisturizers, so it’s helping those products sink into my skin. The bonus small roller for under and over eyes is the bestttttttttt to use in the morning to drain excess fluid from underneath your eyes. Quality jade rollers aren’t that expensive- but if you buy a super inexpensive one, don’t be surprised if the roller ball comes loose and breaks, I’ve had this happen to a few friends before. I think this one is at the perfect price point- the one I have is out of stock on Amazon, but this one is comparable to price and reviews.

Budget Beauty: Neutrogena Face Mask Review

I love Neutrogena products- the quality is great, I see results when I use them, and most importantly they’re affordable!  I jumped at the chance to work with Neutrogena on their latest It’s in the Gel campaign, focusing on their new 100% HydroGel sheet mask line.

Budget Beauty: Neutrogena Deep Clean Cream Cleanser

While I was home in NJ for the holidays I snooped around my Mom’s beauty cabinets and found Neutrogena’s Deep Clean Cream Cleanser.  I’d never used this before, so I figured I would use it daily for a week and a half to see if it was a good Budget Beauty buy!

First off, I’m a huge Neutrogena fan, I think they really are the best for budget friendly, high quality, products.  I’ve used a variety of Neutrogena products since middle school (!!) and I have never been disappointed.

Budget Beauty: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel

When looking for a PM moisturizer I want something that’ll keep me hydrate, fight free radicals, and generally heal and replenish my skin with whatever it loses due to daily stuff such as pollution, irritants, and makeup.

The hype surrounding Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Water Gel* has been real since it came out.  Between all of the commercials and ads in my favorite magazines, I knew I had to test it out.
This product can be worn AM and/or PM, I choose it as a PM moisturizer because I enjoy having an SPF in my AM one.
This water gel is incredible, it feels so cooling and amazing, and seriously hydrates my skin after a long day of work.  My skin has recently been changing from oily to a bit dry, and this was the first product I purchased to accompany my change in skin- and it’s definitely a keeper.
Although it’s a bit different than your typical moisturizer, the application is the same, a little goes a long way.  I love how quickly it absorbs, and it doesn’t leave me feeling greasy or oily, just refreshed.   The main ingredients, hyaluronic acid and olive extract serve as super hydration machines which make this product so great. 
The Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel is the perfect addition to a nightly skincare routine during the winter months.  Even if you don’t have “dry” skin, it’s so important to make sure you are extra hydrated and protected when moving into the cooler months.  
I’m almost out of my first jar of this product, and it’s already on my repurchase list.  I was recently given the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Eye Cream, I’m still using a different eye cream, but I’m looking forward to trying out this one next!!
