My 5 Beauty Faves!

Hello everyone! I am so sorry for the delay in posts recently, I have had some family matters to attend to so add that in with work and I am physically and mentally exhausted. But, starting next week, I am going to be having a few more days off. So I will have more chances to rest up and just relax!!! But anyways, today’s post is about my top 5 beauty favorites that I have been using for ages. I don’t wear makeup, so these beauty faves are mostly hair care and skin care products. So…why don’t we begin?

These are products that I have been using for a while now and I have purchased with my own money, so it is not a sponsored post whatsoever. My feelings of these products are solely based on my own opinion and no one else’s. Just a disclaimer, I suppose. 🙂 I didn’t have a chance to take a picture of each item individually, so this picture is the only one for tonight! I’m sorry! But I will go in order from left to right, if that helps!

#1 – TRESemme Thermal Creations Heat Protectant Spray
I have always had hair that curls upward at the bottom, so I use a blow dryer and straightener at least twice a week. If not, my hair is up in a tiny bun. But, since I use heat tools often when styling my hair, I found it important to protect it from losing moisture and becoming frail and lacking. Out of the two thermal sprays I have tried, this spray actually keeps my hair straight. I could put my hair into a bun for HOURS and once I take it out, it still remains straight. Plus…my hair smells like it has been to the salon every time. That’s always a nice plus.

#2 – Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion
This lotion actually has natural colloidal oatmeal and is fragrance free. For me, this is perfect because I tend to get eczema on my shins and my skin is so sensitive. This lotion has done wonders for me, my skin feels soft and smooth but not oily or waxy like it does with bath and body works lotions. I highly recommend this product especially now since we’re getting into the dry and icy season! Go on. Go buy it. You know you wanna.

#3 – St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Scrub
I have been using this facial scrub for well over a year now and for 99% of the time and it is amazing. Although I do suffer from some inflammation time to time due to allergies, this scrub has honestly transformed my skin. I owe a lot to this product and I highly recommend it if you struggle with finding a cleanser that is gentle enough and smells great. It is hypoallergenic so it is perfect for all skin types.

#4 – KAO Biore Marshmallow Whip Facial Cleanser
I actually bought this product on Amazon for about $12 since it’s imported. Honestly, this is a great choice for night time cleansers (although it isn’t labeled as such…). It isn’t an exfoliater, but it makes your skin feel rejuvinated with the super tiny bubbles and it smells so yummy! It really does feel like marshmallows on your skin. I heard so much positive feedback on this item and I can tell you that it’s pretty darn true. And it does work on sensitive skin so far as I know.

#5 – Cettua My Bright Face Mate Brightening Patch
Last, but not least is one of two items I use to attack my dark circles. I bought these patches in Annandale earlier this year and boy…do they feel nice. All you do is take the patches and place them on your dark circles. They are nice and cold and so soothing. Although my dark circles are cleverly hidden behind my glasses, they still bother me from time to time! So, I just slap one of these bad boys on and BOOM my dark circles aren’t quite as dark and with that I am happy.

Alright everyone! I am hoping to post again on Monday since I have a heavy work schedule this weekend, but family matters are still in the air so I will not promise anything! I hope you understand. 😦 Anyways, have an amazing weekend everyone and stay blessed!!
Thanks for reading~! ❤
With love,
Taylor Rae
