Must Haves

There are always a few products that I have in my beauty routine that I use more than all the others, these products are what you can call my 'Must Haves.'  Now being the beauty addict that I am, these products are constantly changing, whether it's because I go back to something that I had gotten away from or try something new, I'm always playing with a few different things at a time.  Today I have for you the items that I cannot stop using this month!

I saved up all of my birthday and Christmas money to buy this baby - let me tell you it was well worth it!  I am going to do a full post on this, but since the first time I used this I have been in love and the better it makes my skin looks the more I love it.  

When I was younger I was obsessed with the original BiorĂ© strips because they were just so much fun, I am one of those crazy people that enjoys seeing all that junk come out of pores.  I don't know if I forgot about them or what, but a few weeks ago I decided to pick up their new charcoal strips and my obsession is back!  I would honestly say that these work better than the originals and do a great job of clearing out your pores.

I brought this to make different face masks with to share on here and it has been wonderful.  Even if you just mix equal parts of the clay and water, and apply it to your face it cleans out your pores and tightens them up.  This has helped a lot lately to keep my skin looking great.

I've talked about this on here numerous times before because it is the only stuff that keeps my lips from cracking and bleeding.  For some reason my lips are ridiculously dry, especially in the winter, so applying a thick layer of this every night before I go to bed is a necessity.

If you've been reading along for a while then you're probably sick of me talking about how much I love coconut oil.  The reason I keep raving about it though is because it is seriously the best, and has so many uses it's crazy.  Lately I've been using it mostly as a facial moisturizer when my skin feels extra dry and putting it on the ends of my hair at night before I go to sleep when I know I will be showering the next morning.  If you haven't jumped on the coconut oil bandwagon yet, you absolutely have to run out now and get it now!  I always keep a giant jar of it that my Mom picks up at Costco and use it all the time.

Let me start off by saying I'm very particular about my mascara, I started using this about 3 months ago and have had great results from it.  It adds volume to lashes without clumping, which is big for me. Since I first used it I haven't purchased anything else and highly recommend it.

  3. I am the same way, there is some satisfaction in seeing the junk pulled out of your pores! Love 'em.

  4. I think a Mia is my next investment for myself! I've heard nothing but amazing things. And Lash Blast's the best!

  5. I need to try Biore pore strips...I've never used any sort of pore strips before...what is wrong with me?!
