Sharing some hyped beauty products I’ve already purchased and am currently testing, as well as a few I’m eyeing — I will provide honest reviews of everything I end up testing in a future post! (You can read past honest reviews here, here, and here, among others posts.) I’ve sprinkled in many of these beauty finds across a couple of different posts, but thought I’d put them all together here:
WHITE RABBIT COTTON FACE PADS. I’ve been a longtime devotee of good quality facial cotton and have used Shiseido for years now, but Nan Philip recommended this brand and I find her very authentic in her suggestions, so I’m willing to give it a test when I’m next out of cotton.
ELEMIS ROSE CLEANSING BALM. Had to give this one a shot in my nightly rotation!
ARTIS OVAL 6 BRUSH — REPLACEMENT! I was shocked and dismayed when my Artis brush literally snapped in two one afternoon. I am not sure what happened, but one minute I was swiping down against my face and the next, the head was on the floor! I decapitated it! I am not sure what to make of this. I must have been pressing way too hard? But anyway, I cannot go another day without this brush. I literally have no idea how I applied makeup before it. I find the six to be the most versatile, easy-to-use implement — I use for everything from foundation (when using) to blending concealer to applying blush. It is a dream. No other brush compares!
OLIO E OSSO SHAVE OIL. Grace Atwood loves this stuff! Sounds like a major shaving upgrade, in addition to Billie razors, which was one of my happiest discoveries last year. No longer worrying about when to buy razor blades = delightful.
ELTA MD DAILY FACIAL SUNSCREEN. I have used La Roche Posay’s fluid sunscreen for several years and I love it because it glides right into skin and layers beautifully beneath makeup, but I recently saw a couple of beauty bloggers poll their audiences about the best facial sunscreens and Elta MD came back as the clear winner! Going to try it when I’m due for a restock.
SAIE GLOWY SUPER GEL HIGHLIGHTER. Anything for a little extra radiance. (I already use Westman Atelier’s Highlighting Stick every day, but on top of my makeup — it’s the last thing I apply over everything else, and I put it on the top of my cheekbones, under my brow, and on the tip of my nose. Je l’adore.) I’m very intrigued by this heavily-hyped brand!
SAIE MASCARA. So, so many of you have raved about this product. (It’s clean, too!)
SUPERGOOP GLOWSCREEN. Perfect for mornings when I am going for a run first-thing and want SPF and just a TINY bit of oomph.
OPALESCENCE WHITENING TRAYS. People rave about this whitening system!
FLORAL COSMETICS CASES. This shop just has the prettiest prints!
A couple of truly random items I am loving at Amazon that have made their way onto my list: a striped tee (for men, but looking to wear oversized), a pretty cheese knife set, truck books for my son, decorative playing cards, $21 blue and white striped blouse, blockprint napkins, and a jumbo pack of puffy stickers to preoccupy my daughter.
A propos of nothing: this gorgeous seashell caftan.
P.S. Ice cream moments.
