Afternoon to you! How is everyone’s day going? Mine is slowly but surely moving along. This is totally a good thing. I needed a little R&R. About a month ago, I shared some of my favorite products. Today I will expand on that and share some more beauty products I love.

I am kind of a product junkie, which I think I mentioned in the past. I am always trying new things, especially seasonally. I do stick to certain brands and nothing I buy is terribly expensive. However, I do believe to have good quality, you need to put out a few dollars. Here is what I have been using lately.

Beautycounter Nourishing Cream Cleanser– Let me just start by saying that Beautycounter is my new favorite line. They have something called a “Never List” which includes around 1,500 questionable or harmful chemicals. These never touch their products. Amazing, right? But it’s only one of the reasons I am swooning over this cleanser. It is so soothing and will nourish skin as you wash away makeup and other impurities. It is ultra gentle and great for sensitive skin. Some people even use it as an eye makeup remover.  Even when I have a full face of make-up, this does the trick! It’s very lightweight, yet deeply moisturizing. The creamy formula contains witch hazel to tone skin, and coconut oil and aloe to help hydrate.

Acure CGF Repair Serum– Serums are everything! And you all know Acure is one of my go-to’s. This serum in particular has really helped with age spots and the overall brightening of my skin. The key ingredients are chlorella and plant stem cells. This goes on before your moisturizer to really give skin an extra boost. It’s lightweight, hydrating and it only costs $17.

Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Daily Shade– Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen! I cannot say this enough. I am constantly preaching that whatever is on your face for daytime should have an SPF in it. This moisturizer is fantastic. Does anyone use the word “fantastic” anymore? LOL! But seriously, it is hydrating with SPF 18 without being oily, greasy or smelly. Alpine rose stem cells are a key ingredient that provide deep cellular support. It is a prefect pick for a moisturizer with sun protection. 

neuLASH– I know there are a lot of products that help your lashes look long and full, so I am giving a handful a try. neuLash, so far has given me really good results. I use it on my lashes and just recently started using it to get some brow growth as well. This simply goes on your lash line every night and after 30 days I had noticeably longer and fuller lashes. The key ingredients include vitamins, plant extracts and peptides.

YesTo Age Refresh– Night creams are my jam! I am super conscious of every little wrinkle now, so I like to try every night cream I can get my hands on. This clinically proven intense night cream is so moisturizing! I have seen results in reducing fine lines and wrinkles since I added this to my regimen. This is formulated with Wild Acacia to help reduce wrinkle depth and appearance, and a blend of natural fruit alpha hydroxy acids to add moisture and ‘plump’ skin. Simply apply on clean skin before bed, and you’ll wake up feeling younger and refreshed. Oh, and it’s only $8.00! Whaaatttt!

Pacifica Glow Baby Youthful Salvation Walnut Face Scrub – Because I love Pacifica body lotion, I decided to give this face scrub a go. After the harsh winter, I needed a good way to get rid of dead skin. This definitely helped/helps. I alternate this with my Acure scrub, and I am enjoying the results. The ingredients include coconut, walnut, rose hips essential oil, jojoba, flax and borage. It is 100% vegan and cruelty-free. You will find that almost all of what I use, is.

Lush Lemony Flutter– Last but certainly not least, I had to include this Lush lotion. I have some nasty feet. I know everyone thinks they have nasty feet, but mine are seriously no bueno. Last time I was in Lush, they suggested this cuticle butter for my feet. Mango butter is the key ingredient that is basically magic. Beeswax, shea butter and cold pressed avocado oil moisturize and soften skin. It has a lemony citrus scent that is refreshing and brightens at the same time. So yes, it’s meant for your nails and cuticles, however, it is recommended you use this on any dry areas. Hence….my new foot cream.

In my next beauty post, I have some brand new products I am trying. I’ll give you guys the lowdown on all of them.

Stay tuned and have a great weekend!

With Love, Melanie
