Hello friends! Today we are going to be taking you through a tour of our Hall of Fame products. Our tried and true, buy over and over again, use to the last drop favorites. Some things that were important to us when choosing our favorite products were sustainability, women-owned businesses, and overall quality. If you didn’t get the chance to watch our video, you can get the highlights here, and all the products will be linked below, so happy shopping!
The first thing that we have to talk about is MASKS! If I could go back in time and tell my pre-quarantine self that her and her skin were in for a wild ride, trust me I would. Maskne is no joke; we have spent so much time and money trying to find a mask that is both stylish and gentle on our skin, and Kitsch is it! These masks come in packs of three in several styles and colors. They are also lightweight and more comfortable than other masks we have tried. You can find these masks at your local Ulta or online through the links provided at the end of this article.
Another one of our favorite products right now is the ExfoliKate Gentle Daily Cleanser. We love that this is a women owned brand that values clean and sustainable skincare. This cleanser is gentle enough to use everyday and is great at removing dirt, oil, and leftover makeup. This product is a little bit higher cost-wise than some of the others that we are highlighting, but we love how far a little bit of the product goes. Finding a product that works well for your skin from a company that values people and the planet is so worth it!
Speaking of women-owned businesses, don’t you think it’s interesting that the same old, gross, white men profiting off of women’s beauty standards are also profiting off of our periods? These people tend to care more about how much money is going into their pocket, not about products that actually help you manage your period, let alone caring what you are putting into your body. It’s time to ditch the idea that menstruation is gross and something to be embarrassed of, along with all of your chemical filled products, and upgrade to women-owned, sustainable products from the L. Company. All of the L. Company’s products are organic, BPA-Free, and for every product you purchase, they donate period products to a girl who doesn’t have access to them. They have sold over 200 million products, meaning that not only are they helping change the stigma around periods, but they are also making sure girls have access to menstruation products, allowing them to stay in school and work.
If you’re stuck on skincare Tik Tok like we are, you know all about how bad makeup wipes are for your skin and the environment (shoutout to skincare by Hiram). We’re ditching our makeup wipes and upgrading to reusable makeup remover pads from Green Estate. Not only are these better for your skin and the environment, this company has also pledged to plant a tree for every product that you purchase from them! You can check out these makeup remover pads as well as all their other no-waste products in the link below.
We don’t know about you, but this quarter has been extra rough for us. The extra hours of being cooped up staring at my computer have triggered many migraines, as well as just being a general source of stress. My saving grace during this time has been Baked Beauty Company’s CBD Salve. This salve has 500mg of CBD and is a great all natural way to treat pain. If I feel a migraine coming on or I am feeling extra achy from my quarantine walks, I just spread a little bit of the salve on the affected area and the results are amazing. This makes my pain so much more manageable and smells amazing, so we would definitely consider it an essential item for zoom university.
Last but not least, we are so obsessed with clay earrings this fall! They truly go with any outfit and are such a fun statement piece without weighing down on your ears. Keep a close eye on our socials this week because we will be giving away a super fun pair to one of our amazing followers!
Thanks so much for reading and I hope you’ve been able to add a few of these items to your daily routine or jot down some ideas for your Christmas list. We love having you as a part of the Her Campus SPU family, please let us know if there are any products you’d like to hear our thoughts on or see us review!
