Quick! Make a decision! Pick 5 beauty products you cannot live without!
Well, I set myself up for this. I thought “just pick 5 this will be easy enough”, then I looked around my bathroom and cedar closet and realized I backed myself into a corner.
I love beauty products. I’m willing to try just about anything and it shows. I have quite the collection haha! So, since I set myself up with limitations, here are the 5 things I cannot live without.
1. EMINENCE ORGANICS STONE CROP GEL WASH CLEANSER
Perfect for all skin types and super gentle this is my favorite face wash EVER. The gel consistency feels great on my skin, and it has this addictive clean and fresh scent
2. ROSEBUD SALVE
I’ve always been a hoarder of lip products. This is the first line of lip balms that I’ve ever loved this much (Lush Cosmetics is a very close second). I love the little tins that the balm comes in, I LOVE the smell, and the consistency is perfection.
Admit it, we all feel more alive with mascara. This is all I need to feel put together. While Lancôme Hypnose Drama is my favorite, (Tarte “better than sex” is a close second but it flakes off half way through the day and I hate that) I have 1 issue with this… Lancôme animal tests and I hate that soooo I’m still looking for something to take this mascaras place. I’ve actually quit buying it. I’m still using my last tube but animal testing is something I’ll get into in another blog. If you’re wondering why I love this mascara so much, it’s because of the shape of the applicator and the creamy consistency. So, I’m open for new mascara suggestions from cruelty free companies.
4. EMINENCE ORGANICS STONE CROP HYDRATING MIST
This product takes seconds to apply and leaves my face hydrated and rejuvenated. I can spray it over my makeup and use it multiple times a day for a pick me up or refresh. It also has the same great smell as the stone crop gel wash.
5. LEAVE-IN CONDITIONER
Ahhh yes my obsession for leave in conditioners. I know I picked 5 favorites but I didn’t say I had to pick one for each category! Here’s my feelings on leave in conditioners: everyone needs at least one. I have 3 favorites. I use them all for different reasons and at different times of the year. My hair is thick, curly, and borderline coarse so I’m always mixing up products.
Pureology Color Fanatic or “21 spray” smells incredible, has 21 benefits (including thermal protection) and is a great light leave in for every day.
It’s A 10 leave-in is my go to for beach hair, severe tangles, and travel. Smells fresh and is a thicker leave in that, when my hair is most unruly, helps me get through the toughest of tangles.
Sebastian whipped cream. I have had a long term love affair with this product. I have yet to find a product to replace the way this one contours my hair when I let it dry naturally. It is by and far my favorite smell. And the texture is exactly that of whipped cream! This is my go to on warm summer days when I am not going anywhere near a blow dryer.
