Must Haves

I got a deluxe sample of this in my October PLAY! by Sephora box and am totally loving it.  I've talked about my love of facial mists and this spray on here countless times so it's not really surprising that I'm loving this new one.  This spray contains glycerin to moisturize skin, essential oils to energize, Horsetail juice that contains vitamin C and antioxidants, and Echinacea GreenEnvy™, which inhibits enzymes that breakdown collagen.  I like to spritz this on before applying a moisturizer to really lock in its benefits.

I have talked about these pads so many times because they are so amazing.  They literally make my skin glow and I can see a huge difference in my skin if I forget to use them one night.  These pads use lactic and glycolic acids to gently exfoliate, and lemon peel and licorice root to brighten skin. If you only try one beauty product from my blog this is the one you need to get!

I'm a big fan of BB and CC creams because they combine makeup and skincare.  I'm a skincare fanatic and do not like to wear a ton of makeup, which makes BB and CC creams perfect for me.  I had been using this BB Water, but was not happy with the results so I decided to try the It Cosmetics CC Cream after hearing so many wonderful reviews.  I am so glad I gave this a try because I love how it works.  It covers up any skin issues while still looking natural and a little goes a long way.  Another bonus is the smell, it has a citrusy scent to it, which I love!

I talked about this last week in a post that I did about my nighttime beauty routine.  This oil is a retinoid oil that moisturizes, shrinks pores, reduces wrinkles, calms redness, and improves skin smoothness.  I've noticed a huge difference in my skin since I started using it and I recommend checking it out (Pro Tip: Go to Sephora and ask for a sample of it!).

I discussed this in the same post as the Luna Sleeping Oil.  This is a pharmaceutical-grade, lactic-acid-based treatment that works to exfoliate, plump fine lines, reduce hyperpigmentation, increase circulation, and firm skin for instant radiance.  I layer Good Genes on top of the Luna Sleeping Oil for seriously amazing skin.  I also love how this works with the previously mentioned facial pads to give me glowing, blemish free skin.

It is very important to not brush your wet hair because wet hair is more elastic and prone to breakage then dry hair is.  The Wet Brush has super flexible bristle that are gentle on hair and make it the perfect tool to brush through wet hair.  I've had mine for a couple of months now and love it so much that I've got my Mom and sister hooked on them too!  This is something that is important for everyone to use in order to keep hair healthy and prevent breakage.

I got this as a deluxe size sample from a Sephora Beauty Rewards kit and had great results from it.  I am big on micellar water, especially in the morning to wash my face, and I typically use this one, but now I am loving the more luxe version that Caudalíe makes.  I like this one so much though that I just ordered a full size bottle of it yesterday!

My hair can be a little tricky to take care of because of its color.  I've never dyed my hair before and my hair tends to hold the color of anything that touches it (like mascara and face paint).  I usually like shampoos formulated for blondes because they help to keep the color of my hair natural and care for its special needs.  Recently I've loved the cool blonde hair color that has been all the rage and was very excited when I came across this shampoo, it's a violet shampoo that works to reduce brassiness and neutralize yellow tones in all hair colors.  I've used this a few times and am hooked.  I will admit that it can be a little on the drying side, but I've been using my #10 must have to help with that.

My best friend sent me an article from InStyle about this mascara and how amazing it is.  In the article it explained that it is so popular that some Sephora's have trouble keeping it in stock.  After reading all about it I knew I had to try this mascara and am so glad I did!  It does an amazing job on my lashes, it makes them longer and more volumized, but it never clumps.  I'm still only on my first tube of this, but I plan on purchasing it again in the future. 

I did this post on this hair masque a while back.  It is a really thick mask (which I love!) that brings your hair back to life and really moisturizes it.  Like I explained my previous post it is rich in rice amino acids that replicate the keratin structure of human hair.  It works to seal cuticles, repair damage, balance pH, and restore resilience.  It also smoothes hair and helps to make it more manageable.  It works to strengthen hair from the inside out and since it doesn't contain harsh ingredients it is safe for everyday use.
