Current Drugstore Favorites

Who doesn’t love a good budget beauty buy?  So often drugstore products are carelessly overlooked by beauty aficionados.   In reality, most of these products are produced by enormous corporations with acclaimed scientists and researchers in product development – this often leads to seriously noticeable results. 1.  L’Oreal Paris Elvive 8 Second Wonder Water ($9): To be honest, when this product first came on the radar it was a bit hard to understand.

Social Distancing? Try An At-Home Facial

Most of us are spending a lot more time inside these days, and if you’re not – you should be! While housebound or limiting exposure to others, beauty treatments such as facials don’t have to fall by the wayside.   While it is certainly hard to replicate the results from professional hands, an at home facial can yield some Instagram-brag worthy results if you follow the right steps. 1)  Double Cleanse:  Nothing removes dirt and grime like a good old double-cleanse.   Any oil or balm cleanser followed by a milk or gel cleanser works for this step, but you will be hard pressed to find a better combo than Banila Clean It Zero ($19) and Allies of Skin Molecular Silk Amino Hydrating Cleanser ($38).

With fall right around the bend, it only seemed fitting to write a piece on brightening products that’ll remove the sun damage, even out the skin tone, and give you that coveted glow up. Below are my favorite products for post-sun, uber brightening effects. 1.

The Sunscreen Bible

It’s summer — which means sunscreen is in high demand. But, obviously you wear SPF year round because you know how detrimental UV rays can be for your skin…(duh). This post isn’t going to be to reiterate the reasons why you need to use sunscreen daily (because I know you know); instead, it’s about my favorite sunscreens for face and body, plus a few application tips. After all, with hundreds of thousands of sunscreens out there, it can feel like quite the feat to find the one right for you.
