I have had the same Aveda brush for YEARS, and haven’t been able to part with it because I had not found anything I liked better! That was until Goody sent me a box of products, and I fell in love with this brush. It is the wood, oval cushion brush. It gets out tangles and works great for drying. Best part it is under $15! Shop it HERE. 

You know my love of Collagen Powder, I feel like it has been such a great product to turn my skin around. So, when Derma-E sent me their advanced Peptide and Collagen Serum, I was PUMPED! I am now getting collagen inside and out 🙂 This double action powerhouse serum is said to address the deep lines and wrinkles and to promote smoother, younger-looking skin. So far, so good! I felt like my skin was looking a little haggard after this awful winter, and this seems to be helping! $36.50 shop it HERE. 

I keep hearing about how great pure argan oil is for you to hydrate your skin. Natural skincare experts to say to just use this instead of a lotion! I have been using this Organic Argan Oil Blend by Derma-E on super dry spots like my heels and hands, and it really works great. It is not super oily or greasy, it seems to absorb very quicly! I love the price point too, at $15.50

I bought the Sarah Happ lip slip, and this stuff has been my saving grace through the winter. I put it on every morning and night. So, what exactly is it? It is A balm that brings your skin’s natural color to life with the richest, glossiest hydration imaginable. It has the perfect sheen/tint that gives your lips a natural hue. You can wear it over or under your color for more of a glossy look. It’s one of the best lip products I have tried, and worth every penny! Shop it HERE. 

Blue Mercury sent me some of their private label items to try, and one of my favorites has been the Lune + Aster Horizon blush and bronzer palette. It comes with 2 illuminator and 2 blush shades as well as 2 bronze shades. This is GREAT to travel with, and allows you to take your look from daytime into the evening. I also love their bronzer/blush, which goes perfect with this palette.

I am super picky about my fragrances. I can no longer wear mass produced fragrances! I have found a few, boutique perfumeries I love and that work well with my skin. D.S. & Durga was established in 2007 by David Moltz and his wife, Kavi. Inspired by old-fashioned herbal remedies, the Brooklyn-based pair handcrafts unique unisex fragrances in small batches. Each proprietary creation is made using premium raw materials, such as natural oils and plant extracts. It doesn’t irritate my skin, and the scent just gets better as you wear it throughout the day. Their Coriander scent is a spring/summer favorite.
