new year, new obsessions

new year new obsessions 2I haven’t done one of these since November…so needless to say I have a TON of new brands + products to share with you guys that I have been lovin’. With that being said, I am gonna just get into the good stuff because I have a whole lot to say about my January favorites.

One of my new years resolutions is to just get back into my skincare routine everyday—morning + night. You guys know I am a lil crazy about my skin + I’m always testing out new stuff. However, in the past few months I have actually stuck to the same products. The only thing I usually switch up with my skincare routine is moisturizer / cleanser because I’m not super picky / specific about those + like to try out new stuff. I do want to add a little disclaimer that that I have been using these specific products for up to 1 month or more + I plan to repurchase them all. I have received a few of the products from the brands but I just want to put out there that this is not an AD or sponsored blog post, I just genuinely love these products. Anyways, let’s get into it:

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”3487071″]

Frank Body Creamy Face Scrub: I exfoliate my skin with this after cleansing about 3-4 times per week ++ it’s really helped even out my skin tone. I def notice a difference when I’m using it regularly. It has all natural ingredients including coffee grounds (yum), rosehip + coconut oil. Basically all the good stuff in one bottle.

GlamGlow Thirsty Mud: I honestly don’t know how I haven’t mentioned this in a blog post before but this is honestly the HOLY GRAIL of moisturizers. I use this product when my skin needs some extra TLC + feels dry. I always say this but I really believe that if you’re not super into skincare you could easily get away with using this one product by itself, it’s just that good.

Glossier Solution: This was my first time ever trying a chemical exfoliator ++ it’s seriously changed the skincare game for me. I use this morning ++ night to get the full effect and it really works. My skin overall looks brighter, clearer +++ feels soooo good. It also helps with acne!! I never have breakouts while using it. I didn’t bring this with me to Colorado and I 100% noticed a difference. Needless to say, I will be repurchasing this stuff for a looong time.

Paula’s Choice BOOSTER: I’ve been using this as a spot treatment for the longest ++ it really works. If you struggle with breakouts / redness, you should def try this product.

LANEIGE sleeping lip mask: If you’re following me on Instagram, you already know I’m obsessed with this product. It’s technically an overnight sleep mask but I wear it ALL the time. You can always find this in my purse or on my bedside table because I can’t live without it now. Makes your lips feel soo dang soft, gives me a pretty pink tint ++ plumps your lips. Did I mention it smells like berries???

Dewycel CICA Plus Balm: I had a Korean skincare brand sent this to me + not gonna lie, I was a bit skeptical because I’d never heard of them BUT after one use, I fell in love with this stuff. Seriously the most hydrating product I’ve ever used +++ my skin has never felt so soft.

Kylie Lip Kits: I honestly never understood the hype around Kylie Lip Kits but I finally caved and went to ULTA (thank god they carry them now) ++ got me some lip kits. I have shade Koko K (more of a pink) ++ Exposed (orangeyyy tones). The formula is 10/10 + seriously smells like cupcakes. I just love how each liquid lip comes with a matching lip liner. These are the lip products I wear pretty much everyday, I switch between shades.

Too Faced Dew You Foundation: If you follow me on IG you’d know I’ve been struggling to find a good foundation for a while now. My ultimate fav is the Too Faced Peach Perfect so I thought I’d try out their new Dewy line. This stuff is AMAZING. Seriously smells like watermelons (idk why I love good smelling makeup lol). It’s full coverage but it’s meant to give your skin a dewy finish — which it 100% does. I’ve always wondered how girls can wear a full face of makeup and still have such hydrated looking skin +++ I think I found the secret. ( I wear shade Vanilla in all Too Faced products).

Wander Beauty Glotion: Wander beauty is one of my new fav makeup brands. Their “Glotion” is my favorite primer type product to apply before makeup for an extra dewy finish.

Too Faced Chocolate Bronzer: This is another product I’m behind on trying. I picked this up when I got the foundation + I love it! Smells like chocolate and has a pretty matte finish.

Too Faced Lip Injection Gloss: THIS STUFF. If you want some extra pout without actually get lip filler, I highly recommend trying this stuff out! It actually works.

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”3496284″]

Vitruvi Stone Diffuser: I’m soooo in love with this brand. I had a diffuser from Amazon before and I honestly can tell a difference with the quality in so many ways. I have the white stone diffuser + use it every single night + honestly during the day. My favorite blends right now are grapefruit, pacific + boost.

They do carry Vitruvi on Amazon but I actually have a code for you guys if you shop through this specific link you can save 20% off. You can use code vitruviXjamie at checkout for a discount!!

 HUM Collagen Pop: I’ve been trying to get a better intake on my vitamins / supplements ++ one of those vitamins is collagen. Collagen is soooo so good for your skin, hair + nails. It’s actually also rlly helpful for stomach issues + your overall gut health. I honestly do notice a difference with my stomach problems when I intake collagen daily. I prefer these little fizzies because it’s SO easy + reminds me to drink water. The taste isn’t amazing but I don’t mind it!! I did notice that adding lemon helps with the taste. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of taking tons of oral vitamins so this is an easier option if you’re the same way.

Love Hair dry shampoo: OBSESSED WITH THIS STUFF. I definitely prefer the powder form of dry shampoo now that I’ve tried this. I honestly use this everyday, even with my clean hair to add extra volume + texture. It works so well + is in a small enough bottle to throw in your purse — which is my fav.

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!
