My Top 5 Must-Try Beauty Products

Even though I am fairly certain that absolutely NO ONE asked for this, I have carefully compiled a list of five of my absolute favorite beauty products of all time for your viewing pleasure. I swear by these and definitely recommend them to anyone looking to expand their vanity counter with some super-useful new products that will have your entire body glowing in no time. 

  1. 1. Purlisse Watermelon Energizing 2 Minute Polishing Peel

    Don't be fooled, this actually isn't a peel mask. It's more or less a two-minute face scrub. Simply wash your face, leave it wet, and massage the polishing peel to your face. After two minutes, rinse it off. This has left my skin feeling the smoothest it has EVER been and as an added bonus, it smells divinely of watermelon and lychee.

  2. 2. Bioderma Sebium Mat Control Moisturizer 

    I have been using this product for years. It is a bit of a splurge for a face moisturizer, but I think it is totally worth it. This stuff softens out and mattifies skin and it lasts the entire day! It's great for people with oily skin (like myself). With this in combination with the Purlisse Watermelon Peel, my face is always feeling as smooth as it can possibly be. Plus, even though it's on the pricier side, the container will last a long time so you won't need to replace it too frequently.

  3. 3. ProArgan Argan and Macadamia Hair Treatment

    This is another product that I've been using for many years. After washing your hair, simply apply a drop or two to your hairbrush or comb and brush through your wet hair. This stuff does wonders and seems to always leave my locks shiny and super silky. However, I will warn, there is a threshold, and adding too much oil will definitely make your hair a little greasy.

  4. 4. I Dew Care Berry Melting Makeup Remover Balm

    I'm not usually a big fan of makeup removers (totally a big micellar water user), but this one has stood out to me. I know this sort of "melting makeup remover" trend is going around but this is the only one I've ever taken the time to actually try. You simply spoon a small amount of the balm into your hand and work over your face. Then add water to activate, and wash the product off. It is crazy how well this works! I've used it over layers of makeup and it has had no problem wiping everything away with ease. It also worked surprisingly well with eye makeup, which is normally a problem spot for me. After one use, I had no remaining eyeliner on my eyes to remove (normally I feel like I have to scrub at my eyes with makeup remover to get every last spot). I was super impressed and totally recommend it! It's a little messy but definitely worth it for how easy it is to use. Plus it smells like berries which is a wonderful bonus.

  5. 5. Lavido Aromatic Body Lotion

    Although this is little a more basic than some of my other suggestions, I still really like this lotion. It's super moisturizing for an overall body lotion and I am in love with the scent. It's very citrusy, but it doesn't feel overpowering at all. I absolutely love the way my skin feels after using this. It might be some placebo effect but it really has me feeling like the baddest chick ever after I use it.

If you're feeling like changing things up in your routine or just want to try out some new things, take my word for it! These are definitely worth the price and should be a great addition to your daily skin care.
