Checking in with my top 5 products that I have been digging lately. I’ve mentioned a few of these previously but now I’ve been using them consistently and they have quickly risen to the top of the list.
Alright I get it. I finally got around to using it and it’s the real deal. I don’t care what anyone says, self tanner smells. It doesn’t always initially but when the color starts to develop, it has that distinct smell. You know what I’m talking about. This one is the least offensive one I’ve ever tried. Usually Mark can sniff test self tanners a mile away. He never even mentioned it when I had this one on. The color that is leaves is a subtle golden brown, it doesn’t streak and fades naturally. I am a believer. You can try it out with this starter kit that comes with a mitt for application for under $30. I want to check out this in shower gradual tan next.
My Clarisonic was starting to gross me out. Especially after a night or blog shoot with heavy handed makeup application. That brush turned so many shades of color that I knew there was no way it was coming out with just rinsing it with water. Plus, like razors and ink cartridge replacements, buying the brushes aggravated me. This little houdini does such a good job at getting makeup off and then it rinses clean. I also have really sensitive skin and I feel like it doesn’t aggravate it as much. I like the rounded tip, it really allows you to get in those crevices by your nose where blackheads like to hang out. The charge also lasts forever. I’ve had it for weeks and haven’t had to plug it back in. I’m converted over. It’s a great time to buy it now at Sephora with this kit for the same price as the device itself. I also reached out to the company and they are offering for Meet at the Barre readers 15% off LUNAs & ISSAs + Free Shipping with the code: MeetAtTheBarre. Check out all the Foreo products here.
This foundation stick gives the best coverage but still allows your natural glow to shine through. I apply it with this brush, this brush kit is a really good value. I have actually stopped using concealer and just apply this a little heavier handed around my under eye area. Cuts down the get ready time and one less product to travel with. It doesn’t flake and the coverage stays put for at least 12 hours. I really like how it photographs in my latest blog pictures as well. The next time you are at Sephora check it out and get a sample. Like myself, I went back in a week and snapped up the full size.
I didn’t think any bronzer would stand up to the NARS laguna but this beats it. Such a pretty natural bronze kissed look. I apply the bronzer right underneath my cheeks and swipe out to my ears. Then dust on the top of the forehead, down the nose and on the chin. Then take the lighter shade, underneath the eye bone on the outside, right above the brow, the corners of the eye and down the middle of the nose. You are contouring like a pro. This is always my go to tutorial for that. Highly recommend picking this gem up. I use the lighter shade.
If y’all remember from this post, I am totally digging the Living Proof PhD line right now. I have a lot of hair but it is fine and thin. Most deep conditioning products weigh my hair down and make it super flat. I do like my volume over here. You put this on your damp or dry hair at night, comb through and then you can either leave it in or wash out in the morning. It makes your hair thick, shiny and have volume. The shininess is really what got me. All the way down to the tips of my hair. It also has a nice bounce to it. A little goes a long way so this little bottle should last a long time. You can also try it out in this Happy Hair Days kit.
There are my top 5 products that have been on major rotation lately. Do you use any of these? Which ones have sparked your interest? What are you favorite products right now? I hope everyone is having a great week and have been possibly getting all your holiday shopping goodies delivered!
