I thought a great place to start would be my top 10 beauty products. Many of these I’ve been using for a long time and some of them are more recent. I’m always looking for new things to try because you never know what else is out there! Most of these products are from Nordstrom or Sephora. They’re the same price at either store typically but I do love that Nordstrom always has free shipping if I order online.
My first favorite is the Clinique Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser. My mother in law turned me onto this last year. I love it because it takes my make up off really well and quickly without a lot of scrubbing. Some face washes or makeup removers don’t seem to remove everything and I’ve been pleased with how well this does.
The Philosophy Fresh Cream Lotion smells amazing! It’s sweet smelling and it’s one of those lotions I want to use every day but at the same time, I don’t because I don’t want to use it up too fast. Sometimes it’s hard to find it in the store at Sephora or Nordstrom but they always have it online.
I found out about the Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo through my monthly Birchbox. It’s always hard to find a good dry shampoo and this has been my favorite so far. It smells delicious and it doesn’t leave that powdery feeling in your hair that others do.
My hair has a light wave to it so many days I like to use the DevaCurl Light Defining Gel. I’ve been using this for years and it looks like they’ve recently updated their bottles so it might look a little different. This is my favorite to use because it doesn’t leave my hair feeling crunchy.
I received my Clarisonic about 5 years ago and it is still going strong! I used to have a big problem with peeling, flaky skin and the Clarisonic completely fixed that. I use it every morning with a gentle cleanser and it leaves my skin feeling so smooth and clean. Exfoliators with the beads always irritated my skin and this hasn’t caused any irritation.
Because of my sensitive skin, I always had a hard time finding things that wouldn’t cause any irritation. When I was a teenager, a friend let me try their Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion and it changed my life. I’ve tried the lotion and the gel and for my drier skin, I’ve stuck with the lotion. You can see in the picture my bottle is almost gone! It does a great job moisturizing without being too heavy and this is what I use every morning.
Someone at Nordstrom turned me onto the Nars Concealer and I use it mostly under my eyes to help cover up some of the darkness. It blends in so well and doesn’t crease or anything. The color I use is Vanilla.
This Lanolips Ointment is a newer find that I use on my lips. You’re probably learning by now that I have sensitive skin. My lips are also very sensitive and this has been the only thing besides Vaseline that has not irritated my lips after using it for more than a couple days. There are a few different types and scents and one day, I want to try those to see how I can handle it.
I love this Bobbi Brown Shadow Stick. I do not have steady hands and this is so easy to just swipe some on my eyelid and then use my finger to even it out. It’s great for when you’re in a hurry or on the go. I have it in Golden Bronze and Golden Pink.
This Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant is my newest find. I had been trying a few different deodorants with no success at finding something stronger. Right after I started using this, I noticed a big difference and I am hooked on it now! It’s more expensive than normal deodorant but it’s worth it to me. You can also find it at any local drugstore.
I hope you enjoyed this post and maybe found some new things to try. Feel free to comment or ask any questions and I will get back to you!
