top-favorite-can’t-live-without products

Rosebud Perfume CO. *Strawberry Lip Balm*

      i suffer from chapped lips and this lip balm really soothes them && has the most amazing smell ;) I can’t go anywhere without it && there’s def like 15 of these little guys scattered around my house.

available at Sephora

price $7.00

NIVEA *Smooth Sensation*

      i use this cream all over it really hydrates my skin and gives it a “smooth sensation” My hubster loves it too && it has a great fresh “just got out of the shower” smell.

available at Walgreens

price $6


Queen Helene’s *Mint Julep Masque”

      i primarily use this mask for when i have break outs. I apply a dab of it over the problem areas and leave it over night. It helps to dry out pimples quickly. When I use it as an overall face mask it really freshens up & tightens pores. I love that tingly feeling you get when u 1st apply it. I’ve decanted and placed it in a glass jar that I purchased from ikea. I just think it looks prettier in a jar than in a squeeze tube.

available at Walgreens

price $2.99

Mario Badescu *Whitening Mask*

      i recently reviewed this item & i am soo obsessed with it!! It really works wonders on hyper pigmentation and acne scars. I also dab this product on problem areas and leave it over night.

available at Nordstrom

price $24.00

Cetaphil *Moisturizing lotion*

       i have oily/dry combination skin and I feel that the formula of this lotion really compliments my skin. It adds moisture without adding more greasiness. It claims to not clog pores :) The only issue I have is the smell.. it’s very medicine-like. I’ve also decanted this product into an ikea jar.

available at walgreens

price $9.00

Hard Candy *Sheer Envy Primer*

      AMAZINGGG product!! It works great at minimizing my large pores. It does not break me out. This product has completely replaced all of my other primers I will no longer shell out more that eight bucks for a primer.

available at walmart

price $8.00

Avalon Organics *Vitamin C Vitality Facial Serum*

       i feel that this product has greatly improved the quality of my skin. It has made my skin more supple & given it a more healthy glow. I use this product every morning before applying my make up. I also store this product in the fridge to prevent it from going bad.

available at Vitacost

price $13.71


       i developed stretch marks from a growth spurt I had during puberty. The stretch marks are located on my lower back. I’ve been using this product for about 4 months and those scars have been fading significantly. I’ve also used this product on my face and while it does seem to lighten acne scars the mario badescu mask does it faster.

available at Target

price $19.99
