Beauty Faves

I subscribe to several beauty boxes and I read a ton of magazines and blogs, so I come across a lot of beauty products.  I'm kind of a beauty product junkie.  So, I thought I would share a few products that I just love.

Rosebud Salve: I love this product.  I carry it with me at all times.  It's great on chapped lips, dry cuticles, rough heels, etc.  I mainly use it for my chapped lips.  My lips used to be really awful.  So awful, that I couldn't even really wear lipstick without it looking very caked on and cracked.  Now, my lips are hydrated and soft.  Also, this product won't break the bank.

It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In Product: This is a leave in conditioner that I swear by.  It keeps my hair soft and healthy.  I also don't have as many split ends.  I use a few sprays only on my ends, so it doesn't make my hair greasy.  If you are worried about it weighing down your hair, they also make a lite version.  I stopped using this for a few months, because it's not cheap.  I could really tell a huge difference in my hair.  So, I sucked it up and bought another bottle.  In my opinion, it's worth the splurge.

Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Shine Mattifying Gel:  I'm going to be completely honest, this is $35 for that tiny, little bottle.  I have oily/combo skin that is more oily than combo once the humid summers roll around.  My face gets very shiny come mid day.  It doesn't even help to use blotting papers.  I have to blot every hour or so.  I got a sample of this product in my Birchbox and I was immediately hooked.  A little goes a very long way.  This little bottle will probably last six months or so.  I used my Birchbox points to buy it, so I only spent $10 out of pocket.  It's a must have for me and I will continue to purchase it in the future.

Clinique Chubby Stick for eyes:  I've only recently started using these chubby sticks.  I have a few of them for lips and I love them, so I picked one up for eyes during the last 'bonus' time.  It is awesome.  In a rush you can apply this to your eyelids and then blend and go, you can layer it with other eye shadows, and you can use it as an eyeliner.  There are several colors to choose from.  As I said before, I have oily (combo) skin so I usually steer clear of all creamy types of beauty products.  But, it's weightless, so it doesn't feel thick and it doesn't crease.  It also has a little shimmer to it.

Do you have a few 'must-haves' in your beauty regimen?


  1. I LOVE rosebud salve. It is the best thing I've found for my lips!

    Fizz and Frosting

    1. Same here and I love that it's pretty cheap.

  2. I purchased the rosebud salve and lip gloss on my last Sephora visit and I LOVE them both! I also love the chubby sticks for lips, but have not tried the one for eyes. I will definitely have to consider picking one up the next chance I get.


    1. They come in several colors, Jessica. I'm thinking of getting another color during the next bonus time.
