I’ve been posting regularly on Instagram (see the latest HERE) but I haven’t taken the time in a long while to share my faves on the blog. I’ve been a little busy growing a little human inside me and now raising an almost 6-month old! How do you mamas do it all??? I can hardly tell what day it is…
Anywho, back on my come-back: what best timing than Credo Beauty’s annual Friends and Family Sale?
Sharing below all my tried-and-true, my latest crushes and everything I’m going to be stocking up on (everything is 20% off!). Read ’til the end to learn more about my secret stash…
- Must haves – Skincare
One Love Organics Botanical B Enzyme Oil Cleanser and Makeup Remover – one of my first clean beauty loves… And I still can’t live without it. Get rid of your day and any trace of makeup with this gentle oil cleanser. The pineapple scent allows you to travel without leaving your house. Because, well, you can’t… #2020
Grown Alchemist Instant Smoothing Serum – Grown Alchemist’s products have powerful ingredients and are so easy to add to your routine like this serum. A few drops, tap onto skin before applying your moisturizer to lock all that hydration IN (wallet-friendly alternative HERE).
Marie Veronique Vitamins C, E + Ferulic Serum – I’ve tried others but I always come back to this one… It just works. Best Vitamin C serum out there. It helps fight against dark spots and sun damage, and leaves skin radiant and brighter.
Saint-Jane Luxury Beauty Serum – My go-to when my skin freaks out… 20 potent botanicals and 500mg full spectrum hemp-derived CBD to soothe, calm, and hydrate. Purr.
EleVen Unrivaled Sun Serum SPF35 – Sun care and skincare in one! I love that I can just add this as a final step in my routine. It has a matte finish and doesn’t leave a white cast! Great under makeup too. Read more about why you should switch to mineral sunscreen here.
- Must haves – Makeup
Kosas 10-second Eye Shadow in Globe – so easy to apply and a color that works for everyone, and every occasion. I add a layer when I want to amp up the drama.
Ilia Limitless Lash Mascara – the best clean mascara out there. Doesn’t smudge, amplify your natural lashes by curling and adding length. Love the double wand too!
Ilia Clean Line Liquid Liner – This super fine felt-tip liner stays put and is a breeze to apply (how often can you say this about eye liners…?). Cat eye made easy.
Kosas Revealer Concealer – I love that formula, dewy and hydrating, the ingredients are on point (hyaluronic acid for the win). This is my secret weapon for everyone asking how do I look so rested when I only slept 4 hours… (#momlife)
Tower 28 ShineOn Lip Gloss in Xoxo – I’m NOT a lip gloss gal… But this product changed my mind. Easy to apply, doesn’t stick AND moisturizes deeply with its combination of 5 natural oils. You know I’m a stickler for multi-taskers.
EXA High Fidelity Foundation – the perfect foundation for non-foundation wearers, like me! Weightless, buildable, it just adds that natural glow that makes you look like you, but better. And I’ve got a shade named after me… Still can’t get over it. If you’re not sure of your shade – check out the shade finder on exabeauty.com.
Westman everything – I fell in love a few months ago and there’s no going back… Their Mascara is SO GOOD, Baby Cheeks are the best for a pop of color and Lit Up is giving me that perfectly dewy Zoom glow. And Lip Suede is the most beautiful item you can carry around to change up your lip color in a pinch… You can’t go wrong.
Kjaer Weis Beautiful Oil – My wallet hates me but I cannot live without this oil anymore… Smells amazing, feels so good when applied and leaves my skin looking plump and glowy.
- Favorites – Body and Hair
Routine Cream Deodorant – IT WORKS. Keep sweat and odors at bay. Thanks to activated charcoal, it has also incidentally reduced my underarm ingrown hair [TMI]… So win-win-win.
Herbivore Coco Rose Body Polish – another one of my first loves… It both exfoliates and moisturizes. My skin always feels amazing after using it.
Innersense Hydrating Conditioner (and Hydrating Hair Bath) – Fave shampoo and conditioner combo for hydrated, soft and shiny hair.
La Tierra Sagrada Treatment – beautiful hair starts with a healthy scalp! And this product brings you just that. Use 1-2 hour before shampooing, massage into scalp and on ends and let it sit. Then do 2 shampoos and rinse out. Magic.
- The secret stash (under $20!)
My 3 little secrets that already have an amazing price point and that you can stock up on!
Bybi Bakuchiol Booster – had to give up on Retinol while I was pregnant and found this amazing plant-based alternative. Reduce the appearance of fine lines and also helps with acne! $17 miracle.
Acure Radically Rejuvenating SPF Day Cream – LOVE that moisturizer and SPF in one. The Formula is light and doesn’t leave a white cast, just disappears into the skin. And it contains other power ingredients like Vitamin C, turmeric and ferulic acid.
Weleda Skin Food Original Ultra Rich Cream – Celebs’ makeup artists best kept secret to give their A-Listers a deeply moisturized canvas. I use this very thick cream on nights where my skin feels tired and super dry. Apply a good layer, go to bed, wake up with plump, hydrated skin. Don’t think twice.
Ok, I’m going to stop here even though I could add a ton of amazing products to this list! Please reach out if you have questions about any of these or anything else ❤
