September Favorites

img_2911.png

So for the month of October, I am going to attempt to put up two blog posts per week (maybe more) so get ready for lot’s of content from me! I thought this would be the perfect intro into the new month with a little recap of products and favorites I was loving in September! img_2909-e1538523397783.png

I am planning on doing an updated skincare / makeup routine blog post on it’s own so I just wanted to feature some of my ultimate favorites for this.

The first product I want to talk about is the Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask. This has been a cult-favorite this year, for good reason. It took me the longest time to try it out (mainly because it was always out of stock) but I finally picked it up and gave it a try. I’ll admit, my first reaction was that it reminded me of toothpaste — it has a minty scent / thick texture. After using it overnight, I was amazed at how soft and moisturized my skin felt! I have fairly normal-to-dry skin so I found this stuff to be super helpful for that. Even though it’s considered a mask, I love using it as my daily moisturizer… it’s just that good!

Next, I wanted to mention a fun little brand I discovered on Instagram. I feel like I’m always seeing ads on my feed for smaller skincare/body brands similar to this so I thought it’d be interesting to give you guys a little insight on how I actually feel about their products. Anese is a skin/body care brand that specializes in booty care. Yes, you read that right. They have a bunch of different scrubs and lotions for your bum. I wanted to mention that + I will link those products below if you’re interested! However, I decided to test out their new skincare SLAY serum for your face! I have been loving this product. I usually apply it under my moisturizer before my makeup! I personally think it’s super important to hydrate your skin before applying a full-face of makeup, because it applies sooo much smoother and lasts way longer.

If you haven’t already heard of Wander Beauty, get ready for a huge spiel from me because I have been obsessed with their products! They are a cruelty-free beauty brand that carries makeup/skincare. I am planning on featuring a couple different products from them in my makeup routine but for this post I wanted to share their eye masks with you guys! They are so easy to apply, you can seriously do it anywhere! I love these.

Lastly, I wanted to mention two primers that I have been loving! Similar to moisturizer, I honestly believe in using primer. I know a lot of people have different opinions on whether or not it actually works but personally my skin needs all the hydration it can get! I notice a difference when I use primer versus when I don’t so that’s why I love it! You guys know I love Smashbox primers so I decided to pick up this Radiance once. It honestly reminds me of my Glam Glow Mega Illuminating Moisturizer, so I am super stoked about that.

Another product that I am long overdue to test out is the MAC Prep and Prime Fix+ spray. This stuff smells so dang good and works amazingly! Personally, I can’t do my highlighter without some sort of primer spray so I really love this! It sets your makeup and leaves it looking super hydrated.

This was a hard section to pick for because I feel like I am still transitioning into my fall closet and I want to a do a fall style report so I just decided to go with some accessories that I’ve been loving.

I think these KDB boots might just be my favorite pair of shoes I’ve ever owned! I am seriously obsessed with this style. White boots are so cute for fall because they bring a lil pop of color to any outfit! I am super excited to style these.

Similar Style – I love these for everyday wear!

I have been meaning to pick up a mini backpack and I was so excited to find this one at Brandy Melville. This goes with every outfit and it’s SO convenient. I will see if I can find the exact link to this one but I will be sure to link some of my other favorites below.

Lastly, I wanted to mention some undergarments that I have been obsessed with. This might sound so weird to feature in a monthly favorites post but these are so comfy + amazing to sleep in! Richer Poorer also has t shirts + socks so I highly recommend checking their stuff out. Their products are super high quality and soft!

I have a few different things for my lifestyle favorites but first I wanna talk about this perfume I’ve been loving from by Rosie Jane. They recently released their new scent Angie, which is a mix of honeysuckle + fig. I am obsessed! It’s the perfect light scent for fall.

I am so excited to announce that I am partnered up with Olly. Olly is a vitamin brand sold at Target that I’ve honestly been using forever! I think my mom originally introduced me to their brand last year + I have been using them every since. They are gummies so they’re super easy to take daily + they have a decent taste to them. As a full-time student, I have been loving their laser focus/ goodbye stress vitamins. These are so helpful and I seriously think they make a difference!

Lastly, Califia Farms is my go-to almond milk / creamer brand. I have been using their stuff forever! I will admit I am not a huge pumpkin spice fan but every year around this time I give it another shot because I want to get in to the fall spirit. I picked this one up at my local Von’s and I was pleasantly surprised! It’s perfect for anyone who doesn’t like that intense pumpkin flavor. It’s a subtle taste, which I love. I highly recommend adding this to your fall morning routine.

I also wanted to mention this exfoliating facial brush from Nion Beauty, which is a new + up and coming K-beauty skincare brand. I’ve always been so intrigued by K-beauty lines so I was super excited to test this product out! I love facial brushes because they truly exfoliate your skin + leave it feeling so smooth.

If you don’t already use toner, you need to start! I swear since I started using a toner in my daily skin routine, I have noticed such a difference in the brightness and color of my skin. I have a lot of options here for you guys and I am obsessed with them all!

Okay…I never thought I’d say this, but I think this Rose Water Calming Face Toner by Herbal Dynamics Beauty has Mario Badescu beat. The ingredients in this product are AMAZING + have sooo many benefits! I have seriously been obsessing over this product.

First Aid Beauty has ALWAYS been one of my favorite skincare lines + I am seriously overjoyed to work with them. They have such amazing products + they are decently priced for being a higher-end brand. These Facial Radiance Pads are my recent obsession. They help exfoliate, tone + brighten…I don’t know what more you would need. They’re super easy + I love the way they make my skin feel!

I’ve noticed tons of beauty bloggers rage about vitamin c serums for your skin + I was so excited to try this C15 Booster by Paula’s Choice. Some of the benefits of using vitamin c products for your skin include brighter + more even skin tone! I am super excited to try out this product and will definitely keep you guys updated on it!

I know I’ve mentioned this Glam Glow Moisturizer in multiple blog posts already but I am still obsessed! It’s honestly a must in my makeup-routine.

There are lots of First Aid Beauty products featured in this post because they are seriously that good. This Coconut Water Cream is one of the most moisturizing lotions I have ever used for my face. Plus it smells amazing.

I have also been on the lookout for a new eye cream and I have been loving this 5 in 1 Eye-Cream they have!

Okay, if you take away anything from this blog post…it should be this. I am OBSESSED with this Tula Exfoliating Treatment Mask. It is seriously so good. I have honestly never loved a mask more in my life. It exfoliates so it leaves your skin feeling so smooth + fresh.

I also had to mention this pretty + pink clay mask by Alya Skin, a vegan + cruelty free skincare co. based out of Australia. This brand has seriously been all over my Instagram feed + I was so curious to see what the rage was about. So, I actually teamed up with Alya Skin to share it with you guys! Overall, I love the mask + it’s seriously so cute!
