Glossier – Milky Jelly Cleanser
I like this cleanser, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy it again. I’m not a huge fan of roses, but the rose scent is subtle enough for me to tolerate it. While the cleanser isn’t drying, it doesn’t feel hydrating or creamy or rich. I will probably buy it again next time I place an order from Glossier because it a fine utilitarian cleanser.
belif – The True Cream – Moisturizing Bomb
A true favorite! Moisturizing, thick, absorbs quickly, and leaves your skin feeling velvety. I have already repurchased it!
Paula’s Choice – Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid
It’s fine… it does what it should do but I have grown to like AHA exfoliators better and I don’t really notice a difference in my acne when I am using it.
belif – The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb
I am ALL over the place when it comes to skincare, but this moisturizer has a solid place in my routines. I am on my forth pot of this moisturizer (absolutely unheard of for me) and I have no intention of replacing it any time soon. It is thick and intensely moisturizing for my dry skin, but it sinks in quickly and isn’t heavy. It works really well under makeup or even as a PM moisturizer.
NYX – Tinted Brow Mascara (black)
I have tried almost every brow mascara out there and hands down this one by NYX is the best. It is extremely pigmented and can fill in the sparse areas in my brows, it builds really well to create a natural bushy texture, and it has a soft, but firm hold that doesn’t make your brows look shiny.
Real Techniques – Miracle Complexion Sponge
For awhile I was flip flopping between the Beauty Blender and the Real Techniques sponge but I finally realized that they were basically identical and the Real Techniques sponge was like a fifth of the price. The only complaint I have with the Real Techniques sponge is that it wears out pretty quickly for me so I have to replace it more frequently than the Beauty Blender, but because of the massive price difference, you will still come out ahead.
L’Oreal – Voluminous Feline Noir Waterproof Mascara
The. Best. Mascara. It builds volume and length while still separating the lashes without any clumps. I love the waterproof because it never transfers and works very well on both the top and the bottom lashes. Feline Noir works really well on top of other mascaras and always rescues me from lash disasters.
