My Very Honest List of Favorite Products (From the Sephora Sale!)


I am back on the grind with my skincare, health and wellness right now and it feels! so! good! You know that Ariana Grande song where she's like, "I've been eatin healthy I've been drinkin coffeee", that's like... kind of my life right now. Perfect timing because hot girl summer is around the corner and the Sephora Sale starts tomorrow! Today I am going to share my current favorite skincare, beauty, and hair products so you can shop the sale (if you want to!) and glow up with me (LOL).


The Sephora Spring Savings event starts tomorrow, April 15, and runs through Monday, April 19. You can use code OMGSPRING for 10% off your basket, and all Sephora Collection products are 30% off!


SKINCARE

You guys are probably sick of me mentioning the Fresh soy face cleanser, but I can't stop talking about it because it's my holy grail skincare product and I just got the jumbo bottle so it's not going anywhere anytime soon! I've been using this for years and it's so gentle and soothing, yet somehow removes my makeup (even eye makeup) easier than anything else, ever. 


Another one of my tried and true faves: this dewy serum by Tatcha. Oh my gosh, you guys... I apply this in the morning and I have to credit this product for probably at least 50% of my glow up. I have been using this for a few months now and just feel like it really has given my skin a boost of nutrients and hydration and all of the good youthful things that I need. I love the way and it feels and the way it really seems to work! Great in particular for people like me with some uneven texture-- Sephora describes it as "A three-in-one serum that smooths the look of fine lines and texture with lactic acid, visibly plumps with hyaluronic acid, and locks in moisture with squalane."

My latest favorite products are this Good Genes serum by Sunday Riley and the Body Exfoliator by Necessaire. Everyone has been raving about both of these brands and I can say I've officially jumped on the bandwagon. 


Let's start with the Good Genes serum-- this is lactic-acid, AHA serum that targets the look of pores, hyperpigmentation, and dark spots and is clinically shown to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. So basically, what doesn't it do? For me, I first noticed that it smells and feels amazing on my skin, and then I let it stay on overnight and it made my skin look more plump and glowy in the morning. Can't wait to see what happens after I use it more and more! When I shared it on my Instagram story, a couple of you mentioned this is your holy grail product!


Moving onto the Body Exfoliator by Necessaire, I have been in the market for a good body exfoliator for a while now and I just love this one. I feel like it is the perfect balance of exfoliating without being too rough, which I have experienced with many exfoliators in the past. I also am a fan of the packaging because this comes in a tube that you squeeze, which I prefer over digging my fingers into a jar and having to scoop out a hard scrub. To top it all off, it's a clean, cruelty-free, vegan product!



BEAUTY


Okay so we all know I barely wear makeup, so I'm going to keep it simple and just share the products that even I can't live without. I mean, that says a lot coming from someone who doesn't put much on her face, right?


I don't think I've ever used a foundation in my life because I don't like anything too heavy, so instead, I opt for this tinted moisturizer. It's light yet covers any redness/spots I have, and it has SPF which I love! I apply it with an Artis brush, which I highly recommend. 


My favorite eyebrow product is this one from Benefit. I always brush out my brows, fill them in a bit, and brush again. This product is perfect because it shapes and fills your brows fabulously while keeping them really natural-looking- I am not into an overdone brow look... at all. I learned once that if you don't brush out your brows they'll never look natural, so now I live by that! (for reference I wear shade 3.5)


Right now I am really into cream blush. I think a pop of color on the cheeks is so pretty and perfect for spring and summer, and I've noticed just adding a bit of color to my cheeks is the easiest, quickest way to make me look... better. Haha. I am in love with this one, which yes, I know it's a lip product but trust me when I say it's even better when applied to the cheeks! I do want more, though... thinking of trying these: this one comes with an applicator, this is a blush/highlighter duo, and then this one because I love this clean beauty brand


For lips, this is my favorite lip balm, and I have this tinted version of it which I am wearing in combination with my favorite lip gloss in the photo at the top of this post. These are my go-to's and I highly recommend them! Back when I used to go out, this was my favorite lip liner... it's incredible. Makes my lips look so full! Can't wait for those days again.



HAIR


Last but not least! The only hair product I use is Moroccan Oil. I swear by it. I'd show you a picture of my hair sophomore year of college when it was at its worst before I started using Morrocan Oil after every shower, but it's really embarrassing and I don't want to... but seriously, this has changed my hair. So much healthier now (combined with less heat styling), softer, longer, bouncier...

And that's it! Just a very honest, real compilation of my favorite products that you can shop at the Sephora Spring Savings event starting tomorrow!
