HOLY GRAIL SKINCARE

Beauty plays a big role in my life. As you can see from my monthly obsessions, I’m constantly trying new products, new routines and regimens and changing them quite often. It’s what I do and I love it. Although I make time to explore and share with you all of my findings, I will always have my favorites close by for guaranteed satisfaction. Here are four elements that will go with me everywhere!

1. GO-TO CLEANSER
My go-to cleanser is Cetaphil, hands down. This lightweight formula is perfect for my sometimes sensitive skin. It leaves my face super clean without leaving me feeling dry. It just works.

2. OIL
If I had to use just one multipurpose beauty product, it would be Argan oil. Argan oil is pure. That’s a plus all in itself. But also, it serves so many purposes for me. My face flourishes with consistent use. My hair thrives with scalp massages. And, the rest of my body adores it; especially in the Summer.

3. SHEET MASKS
Have you seen my Instagram? I’m obsessed with sheet masks. They make my day, and my night. Added moisture is guaranteed which I always need. And that glow is everything! Check out a few favorites here.

4. LIPS
Guys, you should already know my lip obsession. AQUAPHOR LIP REPAIR! All day, all night. The BEST, BEST, BEST! Check out my previous post here where aquaphor made the obsession pick for June 2016.

I believe the above four picks are the foundation. Everything else is a bonus. Skincare doesn’t have to be complicated. A little goes a long way. What are your holy grail products and why?

AUGUST 2017 OBSESSION

Fall is upon us. Can you believe?

Here’s the first thing that comes to my mind when that cool breeze starts to hit us…EXTRA MOISTURE. It starts now!

Here’s my August obsession that happens to have come right on time for the season change.

Palmers Coconut Oil Body Oil is L-I-F-E
If you love the scent of coconut but not in a way that’s too strong, this is for you. The subtle fragrance lasts all day. The formula feels expensive yet it goes for about 5 bucks! WIN!

My favorite way to use this oil of a lifetime is at the tail end of my shower, while my skin is still well. Get’s absorbs nicely and goes on super smooth.

You don’t have to take my word for it…but I don’t lie!

JUNE 2017 OBSESSION

Guys, when did June fly by? We’re already approaching the 4th of July! When I think of 4th of July, I think, burgers, hot dogs, beers and… SUNSCREEN!

Glossier has come through for us. The Glossier Invisible Shield SPF 35 Daily Sunscreen is EVERYTHING! This is the sunscreen for those that don’t like to wear sunscreen. It’s super lightweight, lightly fragrant and it isn’t oily. No more excuses ladies. I don’t care which SPF you use, but if you need a little help picking, I highly recommend this gem. Best $35 you’ll spend this Summer.

Happy 4th!
