Recent Favorite Things 2021

Hi friends! I wanted to put together a list of all my recent favorites & products I’ve been loving so far in 2021! These are the products I’ve been loving & reaching for over and over again for skincare, makeup, fashion & random items that are absolutely necessary to me.

SKINCARE

Tula The Cult Classic Purifying Cleanser – I’ve quickly realized the reason “cult classic” is in the title. I love this gel cleanser because it leaves my face feeling so clean & glowy, this is one you can genuinely feel good about using because it’s 100% free from phthalates, parabens, toxins, carcinogens, mineral oil, sodium laurel sulfate, and harmful preservatives. YAY!

Hydro Boost Water Gel – I’m OBSESSED with this moisturizer because it has Hyaluronic Acid in it which attracts water from the air into your skin. It REALLY moisturizes your skin. It’s lightweight but it makes your skin feel nice & supple, plump & hydrated.

Laneige Water Sleeping Mask – I know you’ve heard of the lip mask, but this one is for your skin! It’s the consistency of moisturizer & does absorb into your skin so you don’t have to worry about it getting onto your pillow. When you wake up in the morning you face is SO SOFT! Don’t believe me? It has 163.9k loves from other customers on Sephora’s website alone.

HAIR CARE

Olaplex Hair Treatment – this treatment has 2 parts No. 0 & No. 3, which can be used by itself if you want to just try out one. I color my hair & use this treatment once a week & it has helped my hair so much, even my boyfriend noticed how soft & shiny my hair was after using this! It helps keep my hair strong.

Living Proof Dry Shampoo – I’ve loved this dry shampoo for awhile, but I don’t normally get the jumbo size & I love it because it lasts so much longer not quite double the product but only $10 more which overall saves me money! The technology behind this dry shampoo is so cool! It will actually bind to the oil in your hair & after a few minutes I rub my roots & the white powder along with the oil LITERALLY brushes out of my hair to leave fresh clean hair. The product doesn’t build up & feel gross in your hair either!

MAKEUP

Maybelline Lifter Gloss – I always grab this gloss in the ice color – I keep one in my bag & one with all my makeup when I get ready for the day & it’s so nice! It has hyaluronic acid & naturally plumps up your lips – nothing too dramatic & it doesn’t hurt like a plumper. It smoothes out the cracks/lines in your lips & it’s not sticky AT ALL.

Everyday Essentials Brush Set – I cannot believe I’ve been missing out on these brushes. I haven’t ever been able to justify $50 for 1 brush & I’ve always used inexpensive brushes from morphe BUT THEY SHED like crazy! This led me to these amazing brushes from Real Techniques – I’ve loved their beauty sponges for years so I’m not sure why I didn’t think to test out their brushes. Now that I have, I’m never going back. They are SUCH great quality – so soft & no shedding whatsoever. They blend like a dream too! I also went back and grabbed the Eye Essentials kit – which comes with a lash separator to use after mascara to prevent clumping and I LOVE. I also grabbed this really big bronzer brush & it’s probably my favorite out of all of them. They’re BOGO 1/2 off right now too!!!

Shape Tape – Again I’ve always loved this product, but last year I was searching for more drugstore options & ran out of this and forgot to grab more so I continued to use the drugstore “dupes”. HOWEVER, I just recently started back using Shape Tape & let me just say I haven’t found another product that does what this does for my under eyes. Perfect example of if it’s not broken don’t fix it, lol! ALSO : I found shape tape on sale basically 2 for the price of 1 + a free sponge on QVC. Use the code : OFFER if it’s your first time ordering from them or HELLO if it’s you second time. That will bring the price down to $27.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette – This palette is so beautiful & it’s perfect for everyday. It has a ton of neutrals & mattes with a few shimmery shades thrown in there for when you need a little extra for date night or a night on the town.

Morphe X Jaclyn Hill Palette – I LOVE this palette – the story is great the quality is great it really can’t get better. I love how inexpensive these palettes are ESPECIALLY how many shades you get it’s crazy to me. The colors in the palette are so awesome for spring & summer coming up & if you’re into bright colors this is the palette for you.

OTHER

Adidas Promotion Adapt Shoes – These shoes are so convenient & easy to quickly put on + they’re super cute. I’ve been using them on my training days in the gym or just for going on a walk/running errands. I love the elastic bands on the shoe they really hold it tight to your foot which I like & they have the cloud foam technology which feels like you’re walking on a cloud.

Fawn Design Backpack Mini – This is such a great bag & has so many pockets to help keep you organized. I know it’s meant to be a diaper bag, but the mini is the perfect size as a purse. I am really impressed with the quality – it’s really soft & nice leather thats super thick and well made. I love that it can be wiped down completely too.

Amazon Cotton Thong Panties – Listen – I was a Victoria’s Secret ride or die for awhile & then all my underwear started falling apart & bleeding onto my other clothes. I was on the hunt for the perfect pair of undies that are comfy because that’s my main concern & then I found this pack on amazon it’s 6 pairs for 10 bucks! Are you kidding? Why was I spending $30 for 5-7 pairs of undies?! Anyway I’m not the only one who loves these they have over 26,000 rating & are the #1 bestseller in thongs on Amazon.

Velvet Self Tanning Mitt – WOW! Has this made the biggest difference in my self tanning or what?! Why on earth I kept buying cheap little ones from Ulta I do not know. This baby will last FOREVER. It helps you blend out the moose SO MUCH EASIER & it takes way less effort to get a streak free tan. Since using it I really have stayed streak free. It’s super easy to clean afterwards as well.

Quip Electric Toothbrush – I cannot find the color that I have, but if you go in-store maybe you can find it! I have a pink & rose gold toothbrush. I really love the bristles on this tooth brush because they genuinely clean my teeth so well & it has a built in timer. It comes with a travel case & a holder to stick it onto your mirror if you want to. The replacement heads are $5 for a new brush head + it comes with a new battery as well, they have an auto ship options for every 3 months & the first month is free.

Amazon Beauty Essentials

Welcome back! Today I’m talking about 2 of my favorite things. AMAZON & beauty products. First of all whoever invented Amazon, I would like to personally thank for making the quality of my life so much better & saving me a lot of money. They continue to improve and impress me which is kind of scary. There have been times I’ve ordered things on a Friday night at 2 in the morning and it’s on my door step Sunday morning. Another thing I love is that I can look at other people’s reviews & read stories to see if a product is going to work how I would like it. Now, here are my favorite things I’ve ordered from Amazon!

Silk Pillowcase – Recently I’ve been having hair breakage right around my face because I wear my hair tied up at night & with it being so dry when I rub my face into my pillow throughout the night it breaks off. This pillowcase has helped a lot with this problem, but I’ve also noticed a few other bonuses. It doesn’t cause me to wake up with frizzy or crazy bed head hair & it isn’t as rough on my skin which helps with anti aging & overall is just more comfy. It keeps cool throughout the night too which I love.

Blue Light Blocking Glasses – At night there is a setting on your phone to turn off blue lights, but things like TV’s & computers don’t have this same setting. These blue light glasses will protect your eyes + they’re super cute.

Eyebrow Tinkle Razors – If you don’t already shave your face, you need to. Yes, even if you think you don’t need to because you just have peach fuzz. I promise, shaving your face with these tinkle razors makes your foundation and make up powders go on so much smoother! You face will never look better. It’s easier than you think & 100% painless. In my experience its never grown back darker.

Make-Up Blending Sponge – This pack of 5 blending sponges cannot be beat. It’s a great dupe for the beauty blender because of it’s density, softness & it doesn’t absorb a lot of product. The size when it’s damp also makes it great for applying foundation. I gave one to my sister & she thought it was just as great! I’ve loved the Real Techniques sponge in the past, but I always shied away from using it for foundation because it absorbs a good amount of product. Finally I’ve found a new replacement and for the price & quality its a no brainer.

Laneige Lip Mask – The butteriest lip mask ever. I have the hardest time not just rubbing my lips together constantly when I have it on. Plus after you wake up the next day your lips will be incredibly soft.

Brow Tint – This brow tint saves a ton of time when you’re getting ready in the morning so you don’t have to fill them in every morning.

Argan Hair Mask – With my recent hair issue, I’ve started using this hair mask to help keep my hair hydrated. It smells amazing + makes your hair look shiny & healthy.

Heat Resistant Silicone Travel Mat – I originally got this little silicone mat just to keep my hot tools on in my own bathroom at home, but it has come in handy. If your tools haven’t finished cooling & you don’t have time to wait you can roll it up with your curling/straightening iron and there is a little band to wrap it up.

Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer & Volumizer – This tool is great because you can give yourself a blow out at home. My hair type is extremely fine & thin which isn’t a great combination. I’ve tried different products to help give my hair some life, but if they did work it was never for more than one day. By far this has been the best.
