My Favorite {Affordable} Beauty Finds for 2017

Friday, December 29, 2017

I am hosting a giveaway this weekend on my Instagram account, sharing my very favorite beauty products I discovered in 2017, all of which can be purchased on Amazon without selling your prized possessions or children. 

Below is my explanation of why I love each product, including a link (affiliate--not sponsored) where you can get your own little gifts for this coming year--even if they're just gifts for yourself (I don't judge!):

1) Nature Republic’s Cleansing Oil: Yes, I wash my face with oil.  This is according to the BeYOUty Bureau’s method, as seen here.  My face really cleared up this way, and my makeup comes off so much better.  I still wash my face after with a normal cleanser and exfoliating brush, but I do this first thing, in my nighttime skincare routine.  I believe it REALLY helped cut down on my breakouts.  Fight oil with oil!

2) Elume Makeup Remover Cloths (3 come in a pack): This is in conjunction with the oil.  I bought 3-4 of these packs, and use one side per night and wash them all with my towels.  They’re SO soft and make you feel like you’re doing a spa treatment—plus, they take that makeup right off.

3. Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patches: Pregnancy has been better for me skin this go round (it’s different for me each time), but before was a disaster.   I used at least one of these patches every day.  They heal your skin and make your pimples life MUCH shorter.  Also found via Kayti, from the BeYOUty Bureau.

4. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in a neutral pink ("Instanbul"): I have three of these and want them in every color.  Not super long-lasting, but easy to apply, matte, and don’t smear super easily.

5. Maybelline’s Brow Precise, tinted and fibered eyebrow mascara (in color of your choice): if I only have one minute, I apply this, concealer, and mascara.  Comes in five colors and emphasizes your brows perfectly and naturally, without making your feel like a clown.

6. Organize Castor Oil, to grow lashes and brows: THIS REALLY WORKS and it’s so cheap. My lashes are gorgeous, if I do say so myself.  Got to give it a solid month of using it most nights to see a difference, but your lashes (and brows, too) will look fantastic.

7. Cosmedica Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum, for extra moisturizing and plumping power: I use this after toner and before moisturizer.  It helps your lotion really sink in, and plumps and brightens your face.

Thank you for coming to this blog and listening to the podcast!  I am so grateful for what 2017 brought and am looking forward to 2018.
