It’s time for a round of The Beauty Edit and these four products are tried and tested and GOOD! I am lucky enough to try out a lot of beauty products. But every month, I select just four that I’ve been using regularly and really cannot get enough of.
The Beauty Edit
I kept seeing beauty editors talk about being obsessed with the clean body care line Necessaire and in particular the Eucalyptus Body Wash. Eucalyptus is one of my all-time favorite scents so I set out to get my hands on this stuff. And yep, this multi-vitamin body wash is a delight. The scent and the lather get A+s from me. I literally look forward to using it the minute I get in the shower (particularly after my BBG workouts and so much sweating!) If you want a less expensive but similar version try the body wash I wrote about here.
It is very rare that I am blown away by a beauty product. But after one use of Essie’s polish that is specifically formulated to bring nails back to life, I was 100% hooked. So much so that I haven’t gotten a gel manicure or used regular color polish in nearly two months! I typically got one gel manicure a month and after years of this, my nails were so brittle and flaky. Upon application of Treat Love & Color your nails look instantly better thanks to brightening pigments in the formula but then as you wear it, your nails are infused with collagen to help strengthen. Essie promises 60% less peeling and 35% less breakage. I am totally hooked on putting this on my nails now because it has absolutely revived them. And they look better than they have in years. Now I’m embracing the no-polish look fully.
So I had heard about the Artis brushes long before I ever gave one a go. Largely because I have long been obsessed with my Bare Escentuals foundation brush, but now that I’ve tried an Artis brush, color me hooked. The brush is ergonomically designed so using it across your face is seamless. The brush fibers are also able to be used for both liquid and powder products (I use it for my foundations or tinted moisturizer pretty exclusively however.) I now actually look forward to putting foundation on because “painting” my face with this brush is actually fun! I wash it with this brush shampoo.
This mousse came into my life after I saw a makeup artist on Instagram with gorgeous volume in her hair singing the praises of mousse. When I had my natural hair color I was s-t-r-u-g-g-l-i-n-g to get any sense of “oomph” at my roots and this mousse finally was the problem solver. Now that I have cut my hair to more of a long bob, I’ve still been using this for no-nonsense and low maintenace styling. I absolutely love how well it works and think it is worth every penny of its price tag.
