My Favorite Hydrating Face Mists To Keep Me Refreshed Throughout The Day

You ever leave your house feeling you look like a million bucks but once you get home after a long day,look in the mirror and think WTF?? This happens to me whenever I have a non-stop,busy day which is why I decided to never leave home without one of my favorite hydrating face mists-they’re the perfect little refresher to give both my skin and mood a boost throughout the day! 

Face mists actually might be one of my favorite skin care products to shop for, there are just so many different ones available that can cater to your specific needs. Whether you just want a quick, cool refresh on a hot summer day, calm irritated skin or brighten up your complexion, there’s a face mist out there waiting for you! 

I not only use a variety of this trendy product to give myself a little pick-me-up while I’m on the go in between meetings, but I also use them as a way to infuse my skin with hydrating minerals as well as set my makeup.

Mario Badescu Facial Spray

I feel like this was the spray to really set off the facial mist trend. I started seeing girls spritzing themselves pretty much everywhere with this little bottle and it became the first one on the market I ever tried! It’s no wonder it became so popular-it’s not only economical at just $7.00 but it’s one of the most refreshing and the rosewater smells divine! You can find this baby everywhere from Sephora to Urban Outfitters, even Marshalls! 

Lumion Oxygen Mist

This is my everyday mist that I refuse to leave the house or get on a plane without! It contains electrolyzed oxygenated water which helps to stimulate collagen production, provides maximum hydration and keeps my skin happy at all times! 

Epicuren Soothe Dermal Repair Mist

Epicuren provides a few different face mists but their Soothe Dermal Repair Mist is my favorite-it acts as a toner that helps to reduce skins sensitivity to irritants which is a MUST for me living in an urban environment such as NYC. If I know I have a jam packed day of hustle & bustle all around the city, this is my go to to help protect and soothe my skin. 

Supergoop Defense Refresh Setting Mist

A setting mist with SPF? Now you guys know I had to have this in my rotation! The rosemary and peppermint oil provides a refreshing scent while also infusing your skin with antioxidants and setting your flawless morning makeup! This product will soon to become my most used since we now get to enjoy those long summer days ahead of us.

Fresh Vitamin Nectar Antioxidant Glow Water

When I’m looking to give my complexion a little extra glow, this is the mist I turn to to brighten me up! With lemon and orange extracts, vitamins C, E & B5, this is the perfect product to keep your skin looking vibrant throughout the day…plus it smells amazing!

Whether you’re hopping on a flight, just finished working out or simply just want a little extra hydration throughout the day, find the perfect face mist for you and spritz away all day everyday! 

Protect Your Skin Both In & Outdoors With My New Favorite Sunscreen!

As much as I love getting a sun-kissed glow at the beach, I love protecting my skin even more which is I why I preach so much about using sunscreen daily.

I’ve been a long time fan/consumer of Supergoop but every now and then it’s good to switch it up which brings me to my latest find and newest obsession-Coola Full Spectrum 360° Sun Silk Drops! Not only does this sunscreen protect your skin outdoors but also where you might think you wouldn’t even need it…inside!

I bet you never really thought you’d have to worry about the harmful rays radiating off of your cell phone,laptop or TV huh?! Digital rays & digital overexposure are a thing guys!

I’m sure you’ve seen the many sponsored ads on Instagram for Blue Light Glasses-they’re a big trend in the market now,super cute & help block out blue light rays from your electronics. These are a fashionable way to deal with blue light & protect your precious eyes but it’s also very important to protect your complexion!

Coola’s, Full Spectrum 360° Sun Silk Drops is a vegan, lightweight formula that helps to reduce the effects of blue light and pollution. With supercharged antioxidants, plant derived actives, neroli flower extract and hyaluronic acid, your face is fully protected from HEV (high energy visible) Light which studies have shown can actually do more damage than UVA and UVB rays. Yikes!

Add this vital skin care step into your daily routine and be worry free knowing you’re protected no matter where you go!

BTW this is not an ad, I just really love this stuff and how light it feels on my face!

The Seasons Are Changing & So Should Your Skin Care Routine!

Spring has sprung my loves and you know what that means, time to switch up our skin routine!When it comes to skincare, the two most important things for me are exfoliation and sun protection! These are two things you most likely already incorporate into your daily routine (at least I hope so!) but it’s time to kick it into high gear and show your complexion a little extra lovin’ now that the seasons are changing! 

Having a good exfoliant to get rid of all the dead skin cell buildup caused by the dry, winter air is key to revealing glowing, healthy looking skin! If you normally exfoliate once a week then add another day of exfoliation. I personally use a gentle exfoliating cleanser daily but I always make sure to do an exfoliating scrub once a week to really get rid of everything my skin has carried around throughout the week! If you don’t use an exfoliating cleanser then I recommend doing a scrub twice a week-on Sunday’s to help rejuvenate your skin and mid-week on Wednesday’s to give it a little refresh!

I absolutely SWEAR by SkinMedica and all of their products but their AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser is one of my favorites! This is the first step in my routine and it’s gentle enough for me to use both in the mornings and evenings. It contains natural ingredients such as jojoba oil,sugar cane extract and citrus extracts that seriously leave my skin feeling silky smooth and looking radiant afterwards! 

As for a good exfoliating scrub, Feeling Beautiful Charcoal & Black Sugar Facial Polishing Mask is my go to and it’s super affordable!

Did you know that 90% of skin aging is due to sue exposure?! I knew it was definitely a factor but yikes I didn’t know it was that much! Luckily the products from Supergoop cater to protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful ways and now that the weather is warmer and the sun is out to play,it’s important we apply SPF daily. No matter if I’m wearing make up or not, applying sunscreen is an essential part of my skin care routine and I refuse to leave the house without it! Supergoop’s Superscreen Daily Moisturizer is my fav right now because of it’s lightweight formula and it contains SPF 40! 

If Supergoop is a little on the pricier side for you, then Cetaphil’s UVA/UVB Defense SPF50 Daytime Moisturizer is another great option that doesn’t leave your skin feeling greasy and provides great protection!!

Having youthful looking skin not only consists of having a good skin care regimen but I believe it also has a lot to do with what we put into our bodies so try to have a clean diet, drink TONS of water and for a little extra glow try taking Love Wellness’ Good To Glow supplements that contain Vitamins C and E as well as collagen!! 

Here’s to glowing not only in the Spring and Summer but all year round babes! If you have any other tips or products you like to use, please share them with me in the comments below!! 

I Tried These Vegan Friendly Face Masks & You Should Too!

I’m always on a quest to find new skin care products that cater to sensitive,stressed skin. I’m particularly intrigued by all natural, cruelty free, vegan skin care lines and I was pleasantly surprised to see how many are available on the market now!

With something as personal as our skin…and its many moods (from glowin’ to break out real quick!),it’s important to find products that we can work into our daily skin care routine to help put our best face forward 24/7!

Dryness, dullness,redness..pretty much all the “-ness’ “ are the issues I deal with the most and this winter season has my skin super sensitive and EXTRA thirsty! So, I thought now is as good as time as ever to try some face masks from some of the brands I’ve had on my radar! Remember, just like the seasons, our skin has evolving needs so don’t be afraid to switch up your product line up and find some new additions!

Alright lets get to the good stuff beauties!

R+R Mask Summer Fridays

Magical effects in a rose gold tube, that’s what this baby is! As soon as the gel consistency came out I was mesmerized by the ground wild rose powder that gently exfoliated my skin while all of the oils such as argan, grape seed, avocado, sesame and safflower nourished my skin back to life! Oh and the rose scent?! LOVE.

Arctic Breeze Rescue Mask Snow Fox Skin Care.

Who knew that to help soothe my irritated skin all I had to do was add a little Arctic Breeze to it?!This sheet mask seriously lived up to its name and worked wonders on my sensitive skin! It contains Organic Peppermint Water (a natural antimicrobial that helps protect from breakouts),Aloe Vera Leaf Juice (helps to heal the skin with minimal scarring) and Wakame Seaweed (rich in antioxidants that help to repair and soothe). As soon as I put it on I felt a nice cooling sensation and the peppermint water made it smell absolutely amazing!! It was a refreshing 20 minutes and my skin instantly felt hydrated!

Cacao Antioxidant Mask – Josh Rosebrook

I desperately wanted to try a mask that could help with stimulating circulation and what better ingredient than cacao?! It not only stimulates circulation but also helps to brighten, firm and protect the skin! This mask literally contains all of nature’s finest ingredients intended for soothing, firming, moisturizing, and treating the skin for basically all of its needs! Oh and don’t be alarmed if your skin is pretty red after use, that’s just reflecting an increase in blood circulation!

Synergie Masque -Odacité

Ooh man guys this is a good one! This mask works a little different than most since it’s a powder activated when you mix with water but the cool part is you can actually “supercharge” each of the 4 synergies (Detox, Peel, Brighten & Firm) with ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen! For example, I wanted to boost detoxification so I just added a little bit of apple cider vinegar but if you wanted to brighten and reduce the appearance of brown spots you would add organic milk! How dope is that?!

Do you guys have any favorite masks you’ve used lately?! Please share!

New Year, Same Night Time Beauty Routine!

Hello my lovelies!! I hope all of your holidays were amazing and filled with lots of love,laughter & yummy recipes!

Now I’m sure most of you have geared up and gotten your New Year’s Resolutions in order but are you keeping up and being consistent with your previous ones?! I feel like consistency is essential to achieving any and everything you want out of life! Whether it’s something as simple as sticking to a skin care routine to doing some type of physical activity for at least 20 minutes a day, forming good habits will help you out in all aspects of your life!

With that being said, I’d like to share with you beauties what my nighttime beauty routine consists of!

Step 1: Remove Makeup

Literally as soon as I walk in the door I head straight to the bathroom to take off my makeup because I know if I don’t do it right away I run the risk of getting lazy and forgetting- falling asleep with makeup on is a huge NO NO. I typically will use makeup wipes for wiping my day away since they’re easy to use and mess free!

Step 2: Bath Time

While I’m removing my makeup I’ll have my bath running that way I can hop into my warm bath as soon as possible. Taking a long hot bath to detox and de-stress is what I look forward to most at the end of a long day! This is my time to meditate and reflect and wash away any negative energy I may have absorbed during a hectic day in the city (I really wish washing away problems could work in real life but hey it’s more so the mental aspect of it that I appreciate!!) Turning off the lights, lighting some candles, keeping my phone far away from me,soaking in some Epsom Salt and using Love Wellness’ ph balancing cleanser are how I enjoy showing myself self love and chillin’ the F out!

Step 3: Skin Care

Once I’m all pruney and out of the bath, I’ll throw on a cozy robe and start showing my skin some love! After cleansing my face, I apply 3 different products. First up is SkinMedica Retinol Complex 0.5 which is amazing for enhancing skin tone, texture and resiliency! Then I’ll dabble on another one of my fav. products from SkinMedica, the Lytera 2.0 Serum to help brighten up my complexion and finally I’ll finish up with Dermalogica Active Moist which contains some of my favorite ingredients such as lemon, lavender and cucumber which all help to refine my skin while providing deep hydration throughout the night!

Step 4: Technology Off

Now that my skin is prepped and ready to stay hydrated throughout the night, I’ll take a quick moment to check my phone for any important emails or texts I may have missed but after that I stay away from all technology, yes including Netflix, an hour before going to bed. Instead of binging my new favorite show or getting wrapped up on Instagram, I’ll read a book until my eyes and brain finally want to shut off. I’ve found this helps tremendously with being able to fall asleep faster and better and getting my 8 hours of beauty sleep is SUPER important for me and for those around me the next morning! HAHA

I’d love to hear what is involved in y’alls PM beauty routines as well so please feel free to share!

Easy Work Hair-Do: Gorgeous Waves Without Hot Tools!

Spring has officially sprung, friends and that means it’s time to take a good look at my hair and make the necessary changes to express a new style and of course, to keep my color bright and lovely. BTW – did I mention I’ll be at Ulta Beauty in Brentwood, California (in Northern California) on June 29th to hang out with y’all and chat all things hair with my partner Frédéric Fekkai? My look will be on point that day, inspired by the season! 🙂

I’ve been feeling serious un-done vibes when it comes to my hair lately, and with Earth Day just behind us and the flowers in my yard coming in to full-bloom I’m feeling very much like a woman looking to embrace natural beauty inspired by the season. I’ve found however that unless you’re using a great volumizing shampoo and conditioner like Frédéric Fekkai’s The Uplifting One, and styling products that won’t weight the hair down, that achieving an un-done look (mostly by lightly styling wet hair and allowing it to air-dry) can be pretty hard to accomplish. Hair can be frizzy instead of smooth and glossy due to environmental elements, and it can literally fall flat, weighed down by both gravity AND the wrong products.

So today, check my step-by-step tips for gorgeous, full hair that’s accomplished through a specific air-drying technique I’ve mastered over the years. Both the technique and the products used are important, so don’t discount one or the other!

Step 1:

Wash hair with Frédéric Fekkai’s The Uplifting One Shampoo and then condition with The Uplifting One Conditioner.

Benefits: See ya hot tools! Formulated for fine or limp hair, The Uplifting One Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner contains South Sea Blue Seawood Extract, the perfect natural ingredient that provides uplifting volume, thickness, and body. Because we’re air-drying our hair in this little scenario, this ingredient, along with the absence of sulfates and parabens, really helps provide a great shape without the use of a blow-dryer.

 

Step 2:

Towel dry hair well and apply Frédéric Fekkai’s The Gifted One Multitasker to damp hair, applying a small amount to the palms, rubbing the hands together, and smoothing over the hair starting at the ends.

Benefits: GORG-CENTRAL! The Gifted One Multitasker is full of powerful Norwegian Sea Extract, marine technology that helps transform hair from the inside out against external pollutants and environmental conditions. It’s a lightweight formula that helps hair stay smooth when air-drying!

 

Step 3:

Comb through damp hair and choose a straight part that goes against your traditional one. Section damp hair into 2 inch pieces and spray a generous amount of Frédéric Fekkai’s One Up Lift and Volume Spray from the roots to mid-shaft to add volume and life. Then, twist these 2 inch pieces of hair, and continually twist and twirl them in your hands until your hair has air-dryed. This helps to set a loose-wave style that’s smooth and pretty and looks totally flower power-esque without the use of hot tools

Benefits: VOLUME, VOLUME, VOLUME! This product gives lift and boosts any style, even an air-dried one! The One Up Lift and Volume Spray has no parabens and is a hydrating, lightweight formula.

 

Step 4: 

When hair is dry, with loose curls in place, revert back to your original part and be delighted by the volume created by that simple trick of drying your hair with a rarely used part. Use your fingers to comb through hair. If you’re looking for extra texture and to set the style, spritz Frédéric Fekkai’s One and Then Some Texturizing Spray throughout hair, starting from the roots to the ends. 

Benefits: The One and Then Some Texturizing Spray provides hair with extra fullness and volume without dulling the hair. Your air-dryed waves will have a soft, touchable feel that will last all day!


And that my friends, is how to achieve perfectly un-done hair that’s air-dryed! It’s so nice to take a break from hot tools every once in a while, especially during the spring when a natural look really blends well with the season. If you have any tips on how you style your hair when it dries naturally, please let me know in the comments below!

Everyone At The Office Wants These Frédéric Fekkai Products

If you’re like me, you’ll remember that Frédéric Fekkai was the first fancy, salon line of haircare that girls our age really got our hands on. Those pretty bottles were mesmerizing, the scent above and beyond anything I had used before, and the results from actually using the products: life-changing! Fekkai products were like the gateway drug to everything luxury in the beauty world. Gives a product lover like me the warm and fuzzies inside. Nostalgia is so powerful!

So, when Frédéric Fekkai asked to partner with me (ME!!!) to help bring the story of The One, the new line of luxury, salon perfected, and science supported products to my readers you betta believe I jumped at the opportunity. It’s so fun to work with a brand that holds a special place in your heart!

So here’s what’s new with The One: as I mentioned, it’s Frédéric Fekkai’s new luxury line of salon haircare products with different collections for different haircare needs.  The full collection harnesses the transformative power of the sea with proprietary Norwegian Sea Extract to protect the hair from the inside out. I’m obsessed with The Brilliant One for color-treated hair as I’m a dedicated lover of bleach requiring the right shampoo, conditioner, and styling products to keep my blonde as bright as it can be. There are also other collections for a variety of needs: anti-frizzing potions (The Tamed One) , volumizing lotions (One and Then Some), dry shampoo miracles (One More Day Dry Shampoo), and deep conditioning masks (The Ultimate One). I’m also especially fond of The Gifted One Multitasker Creme for styling protection and glossy shine (you glow, girl). The products are exclusive to Ulta Beauty so get in your car and go there (now).

Plus, have I even mentioned how insanely beautiful the new packaging is for The One? Each bottle in the line looks like an art-deco work of art, in colors every interior designer is going ga-ga over in 2018. It’s so fun to get into the shower everyday and see these beautiful babies juxtaposed to my white marble and tile shower. It makes the whole experience feel very glam. Oh, and the scents of The One products? They’ll blow your mind AND make whomever has a crush on you tell you that your hair smells so, so good.

So let’s get back to The Brilliant One for a minute, my current line of choice for color-treated hair. I’ve always been a California blonde; there is just a je ne sais quoi about that buttery color and how effortless it comes across. With the dye-jobs though comes the immediate need to rescue my strands from the processing, and The Brilliant One does just that. Better yet, it keeps the color in my hair looking as fresh as it did on Day 1, rather than stripping it of the brightness and turning it a dull, brassy yellow. Using a product specifically made for color-treated hair truly makes a difference in how long your color lasts – it’s all about the ingredients and how they interact with whatever you have going on. I really recommend The Brilliant One – smells great, beautiful packaging, brilliant blonde hair. What’s not to love?

So, chickas and dudes alike – stay posted with me for the next few months as I test out all the new products from Frédéric Fekkai’s The One! My shower is looking seriously glorious right now. Also, I’d love to hear about your own Frédéric Fekkai nostalgia moment in the comments (and which product from The One is your fave).


Tried and True Gifts for the Beauty Lover in Your Life

I’m the ultimate product queen. I have so many potions and lotions in my bathroom I guy I once dated told me he almost broke up with me early on because of it. He thought it was SPOOKY. Well…fuck him! I’m beautiful!

With today’s Gift Guide I present to you my selects for the beauty lover in your life – personally tested and loved not just by moi, but by many a beauty lover out there. The lady or guy in your life who loves a product as much as me will get down on their knees and thank you for your keen generosity. To the list!


Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial

This is my absolute favorite facial right now. It’s a mini-peel and can only be left on for 15-20 minutes, but when washed off, your skin really is soft and smooth like a baby.

Byredo ROSE OF NO MAN’S LAND

Those in the know go to Byredo for their scentsational spritzes, candles, and room sprays. One of my new favorites is the sexy, subtle “Rose of No Man’s Land”. I imagine every bougie Burner in the world would like it too.

OUAI Smooth Spray by Jen Atkin

One of my fave PR companies sent me some OUAI goodies recently so I could finally sample all the goodness that is Jen Atkin. My thoughts on the Smooth Spray? It’s a must-have, kick-ass addition to my hair routine that leaves my hair smooth and touchable after it’s been blow-dryed. It’s a MUST now, not just a WANT.

Urban Decay NAKED SKIN Concealer

I thought I had concealer all figured out until Urban Decay’s NAKED SKIN Concealer came along. Holy fucking shit, y’all. This is the best thing I’ve ever put on my face to hide what ails me. Whenever I wear it everyone comments on how fab I’m looking “without make-up” and trust me, I don’t correct them.

Girl Undiscovered Stumbled Across Paradise Face Mask

A nice addition to my line-up, I’m a fan of this newish brand’s “Stumbled Across Paradise” Face Mask. After my family’s Thanksgiving dinner I offered up a face mask party to my relatives and at least 8 of us walked around with this hydrating, skin-smoothing, yellow mask on our faces. Good times.

OUAI Memory Mist

Another newbie that I love from Jen Atkin! Her Memory Mist is sprayed onto dry hair and does magical things like give it shine, make it feel smooth in your hands, and keep your style in place. It smells great too. I always cough up for expensive hair products because really – they just work better.

SkinMedica Total Defense + Repair Sunscreen

This is the only sunscreen I use on my face. Why? Because it’s one of the ONLY ones on the market that also protects from infrared rays in addition to the usual UVA/UVB protection. Get this for everyone you love.

Joanna Vargas Daily Serum

This daily serum, along with JV’s Vitamin C serum, rank high on my list of skincare loves. It smells like a green grass salad, y’all. It’s hydrating, brightening, and I don’t leave home without putting it on in the morning.

H2O+ Beauty Lip Stain

It may look orange in the tube, but it comes out light pink and super shiny on the lips! This stuff is dope! It just kind of melts onto your mouth in the prettiest shade. Hyper-moisturizing too. Love.

Oribe Gold Lust Pre Shampoo Treatment

OHMAGODDDD do I love this product. It’s essentially a mask for your hair and leaves it so smooth, soft, and shiny. You apply when your hair is dry, before you shampoo. I like to mask my hair and face simultaneously (with a different product of course) for a bit, then step into a spa-like shower for the ultimate pampering treatment. Your friend’s hair will thank you.

Mason Pearson Boar Bristle Brush in White

For the guy or girl with everything, get them a Mason Pearson in white. This is one of the best hairbrushes EVER and leaves hair looking smooth and soft. 


Where To Buy This Hydrating Elixir of Youth

I think it’s been determined that until scientists discover some crazy plant that reverses aging, the best elixir of youth we’ve got is water, right? Or I suppose it’s less about the water itself and more about the benefits that come from your body being appropriately hydrated.

The benefits of staying hydrated cannot be overlooked, and you certainly can feel and see the difference in your body when you’re getting the hydration you need.

Now imagine being 2-3x more hydrated after drinking 1 bottle of water than you typically would be. Your skin would glow and feel so supple, you could exercise for days, and your digestive system would flow smoothly, keeping extra lbs at bay. It’s possible, and all thanks to this crazy popular electrolyte drink mix that’s blowing up on Amazon right now: the Liquid I.V. Hydration Multiplier.

I first saw this product being touted on Instagram and was curious – I’m a slave to my water filter and go back 8 or 9 times a day for fresh glasses of water. I have to pee CONSTANTLY, and generally get up twice every night. I’d love to able to drink a bit less water just to skip the constant bathroom line wherever I go. Sleeping through the night also sounds dope.

I got the lemon lime flavor, which claims to double or triple your level of hydration in a single packet through it’s “Cellular Transport Technology”, and was surprised to find that even though I really don’t like flavored bevvies, this electrolyte drink, especially shaken into icy cold water, is surprisingly tasty and refreshing.

I also had no idea what “Cellular Transport Technology” was or why this product could hydrate to the degree it does, so I’ll share what the Liquid I.V. company says on their website about it: 

Based on science pioneered by the World Health Organization, Liquid I.V.’s Cellular Transport Technology (CTT)™ uses a specific ratio of potassium, sodium, and glucose to deliver water and other key nutrients directly to your bloodstream, hydrating you faster and more efficiently than water alone. The specific ratio of electrolytes used in CTT creates an osmotic force that allows water to be absorbed in the upper digestive tract. Typically, fluids pass through the entire digestive system, losing water and vital nutrients along the way before being absorbed into the bloodstream. Think of Cellular Transport Technology as an expedited water delivery system in your body. The result: rapid hydration and a wholesome feeling for you.

— https://liquid-iv.com/science/

So there ya have it. A bit of potassium, salt, and sugar make hydration through water that much more effective. Pretty cool science if you ask me. And athletes, listen up: there’s half the sugar in these babies than traditional sports drinks, but 3x the electrolytes!

Confidence in a Bottle? My Latest Skincare Haul Tests That Theory.

The fall season has proven to be a time of great self-reflection for me so far. I’ve shaken off the sting of summer flings and endless wedding parties, and have time to sit and breathe again for a minute. This past summer was certainly not the season for self-care and love, at least not for me. As things have quieted down in my mind and I’ve returned to the city (and the spa at the Greenwich Hotel twice for some meditative massages), I’m making decompression a priority through the end of the year. My heart simply can’t take any more aches and pains and my goal for what’s left of 2017 is to rebuild some of the confidence I’ve lost during the past few years; becoming a fully-formed adult certainly isn’t easy. I’m sure you can relate.

I celebrate my birthday every September 29th, a yearly milestone that helps to bring me into a place of reflection. While I exercise, and eat clean, and meditate, and talk with my therapist every week to work on getting my groove back (hey, Stella), it’s also safe to say that sometimes, for a product junkie such as myself, a little retail therapy can go a long way to aid in the journey of feeling good about oneself. Call me shallow or crazy, but my most successful, enduring relationship in my life has been with lotions, potions, scents, and serums.

Clear skin and perfectly shiny hair has a genuine effect on how I feel when I look in the mirror. Inner beauty trumps outer beauty, always, but my god does it feel good when I wake up with a perfectly even skin tone.

So, because they always love me back, I look to beauty products for a quick dose of confidence my soul desperately needs at the moment. And as luck would have it, the fall season DOES require an updated skincare regime, so my power to purchase doesn’t feel indulgent or needy. I NEED these products just as much as my skin does, okay?

From redness reducers to a rose-oil serum, check out the newness I’m surrounding myself with to help me get from my bed, to the fitness studio, to work, and beyond. I’m feeling looking, smelling good, and looking good – all for myself, for now.
