Happy February, Fam!
I can't believe the first month of the new year has already come and gone! Doesn't January 1st feel like just yesterday?
Today, I'll be sharing some of beauty favorites from the past month—everything from hair to skincare goodies. Let's get started!
Straightening brushes have been "in trend" for quite a while now so I decided to one a whirl. Let me tell you, this one by Amika is a total lifesaver! This brush is easy to use and really helps me achieve that straight sleek look that I want! If you constantly wake up with hair strands pointing in weird directions, this tool will help tame all the stray flyaways! Plus, it gets the job done way quicker than your average hair straightener!
KOPARI COCONUT SKINCARE SYSTEM
A lover of all coconut-flavored delicacies, I figured why not give the ingredient a try on my body as well?
Coconut oil is great for everything, right?
I've been a fan of Kopari's coconut body products (Body Oil, Body Milk, and Coconut Crush Scrub) for quite some time so I was super excited to learn that they came out with a four-product skincare line. Aesthetically speaking, their pink ombre packing is informative—you use the products in order from light pink to dark pink. The line itself includes a Coconut Cleansing Oil, Coconut Rose Toner, Coconut Face Cream, and a Coconut Lip Love lip balm. All of these products are super hydrating, which is perfect for this cold winter.
I've been using Murad's City Skin Overnight Detox Moisturizer in the evening, especially on sick nights. When I'm sick, my skin tends to get really dry (to the point of flaking), mainly because I'm constantly creating friction when blowing my nose. This overnight moisturizer "heals" my skin when I'm sleeping. I ALWAYS wake up with super soft skin whenever I use it.
I've been using NARS' Smooth & Protect Primer after moisturizing and pairing it with the new Soft Matte Complete Concealer in Macadamia to create my simple everyday look. If you love NARS' Radiant Creamy Concealer (I can't imagine anyone hating this product), I recommend checking out the new Soft Matte Complete Concealer as well—especially if you're a matte-finish type of gal!
PHILOSOPHY - BODY MOUSSE & DRY SHAMPOO
*Gasp!* When browsing through Sephora's website the other week, I knew I needed to get my hands on these new launches. Philosophy came out with Body Mousses and Dry Shampoos in both Pure Grace and Amazing Grace scents. Pure Grace is on the cleaner side while Amazing Grace leans on the more floral end (my favorite)! The Body Mousse has a cool and fizzy sensation upon application. I really think it adds a fun element when moisturizing the body! All in all, the Dry Shampoo is my hands-down favorite beauty product for the start of 2017. Not only do both scents smell exactly like the perfume, but they also work really well!
