My Feb-Mar Beauty Empties!

I thought it would be fun to share with you what beauty products I used and finished in the last two months. There are lots!!! So, I won’t be sharing photos of everything, but links below will be shared. If you have any questions pertaining to any certain product please leave me a comment below or send me an email! 🙂 I’ve really started to care deeply about skin care and just taking care of myself in general. I think we don’t realize how important skin care or anything that has to do with our body and health truly is until we get older. I can only imagine how nice my skin would be if I had someone teaching me when I was growing up. So, hopefully this will help someone sooner than later!

My favorite go-to  lip glosses:

Buxom – White Russian – Direct link here

MAC Cremesheen Glass – Just Superb – Direct link here

Skin Care:

AmorePacific: Moisture Bound Mist, this is worth every dollar. I know it’s a little pricey but it does wonders for my skin all summer long. I use this after I wash my face and I carried the smaller one in my bag and used it to freshen up. Direct link is here.

Formula 10.0.6 – So Totally Clean Acne Cleansing Pads – I use these every other day if not every day. I LOVE this brand, doesn’t dry out my skin and helps with my acne issues. Their masks are great as well if you haven’t tried them! Direct link here. Currently BOGO 50% off 4/28/17

Burt’s Bees Acne Solution – Direct link here. I liked this for my skin and will be purchasing more, I wish it had a little more tingle but it worked wonders on my pores.

Tula – Illuminating Serum- Holy Grail here as well ladies. Tula is a line that I have EVERY item cause everything is that damn good! This skincare line has done wonders for me and if you haven’t heard what their about you need to read on them and also try their products! Direct link to their website here.

Fresh – Umbrian Clay face lotion – I’m a huge fan of Fresh beauty, this product is oil free and keeps my pores clean and my skin soft! If you haven’t tried this yet, I highly recommend you do. Direct link here

Celavi Makeup Wipes – Obsessed with these!! I tried this brand almost a year ago and I’m in love with their products. Great for sensitive skin & really removes the makeup with one wipe! Direct link here

Simple Makeup Wipes – These are probably my 3rd or 4th fav brand but I needed to finish the pack. Direct link is here. Currently on sale with that link.

Makeup:

NYX Matte Finish Spray – Direct link here.

NYX Wonder Stick – for contouring. Direct link here. I used this so much on my cheekbones and nose. Carl would always be like “whatcha doing?” haha Def one of my favs!

Pür 4-1 in Liquid Spray Foundation – I used this all winter long, MY FAV is Dior but I tried Pür cause it was half the price. I have to admit, I liked Dior better I felt like it was more of a full coverage that I usually am looking for. Direct link here.

Hair Care: 

Klorane Dry Shampoo – The ONLY dry shampoo I will ever use. Praised the lord when I tried them, haha. Doesn’t leave my scalp itchy and dry, blends in and smells SO fresh. Worth the $20!!! Direct link here.

Briogeo- Don’t Despair, Repair. Hair Mask, I used this twice a week to pamper my hair after all that I do to it haha – Link here

180PRO Intense Repair Shampoo:  direct link here – Not only does it smell amazing it really did wonders for my hair. I’m the girl that dries, straightens and curls my hair SO much.

Philip B- Jet Set Hair Spray – just ordered more today. This hairspray is 2 LEGIT 2 QUIT. Doesn’t spray wet, or sticky. Its amazing. Linked here.

EVA NYC Shampoo – Truly obsessed with the brand as well. Hands down a must have in your shower. If you haven’t tried it, do so. Direct link here

Bebe & Bella; probiotic skincare system.

Trying new skincare is one of my favorite things, and I’m so lucky that beauty blogging lets me do such fun trials. I’ve tried some of Bebe&Belle new probiotic skincare system called Be Bella.

Below you’ll find all the products they sent me and my reviews of a few of them! Also a 20% coupon.

If you’re looking for something to WAKE UP your skin, you should give these products a try! It’s truly meant to work outside and inside on all levels to make your skin brighter, clear and healthy.

PROBIOTIC EYE CREAM

Bebe & Bella live by the line “Keep the laughter, not the lines”

Use their eye cream twice daily to do so.

It absorbs quickly and a tiny dab is all you need.

PROBIOTIC HYDRATING NIGHT CREAM

The night cream is perfect if you have dry and sensitive skin that needs some tender love and care. A little goes a long way! I used a dime size and it worked for my entire face. Apply after you’ve used the cleanser and sleep tight. Let the cream do it’s work!

Collagen Pro

Skin Care & Collagen Matrix Supplement Capsules

I just started the collagen capsules and I’ll have to report back in another week or so after results have started. I’ve heard amazing things and results people have had after only 3-4 weeks. Smoother, plump skin! This makes me not feel so bad about being 31 this year, haha. I personally won’t ever get botox or anything such, so for me this is a great idea to try!!

FACIAL CLEANSER 

Raise your hand if you’re a sucker for trying new cleaners! *Raises Hand* I always try them out on my skin first (my hands) before using on my face. I get that question a lot. I like cleansers that aren’t loaded with fragrances — my skin doesn’t like them either. All you need is a small pearl size to clean your entire face, even with eye makeup on. It works wonders and I love how its packed with three fatty acids improve skin elasticity, returning the skin to a balanced pH as well. WIN WIN!

Use code “PRIMP20” for 20% off your order!

For everyone who would love more in depth facts about Be Bella:

BeBella®’s skincare secret is in its two patented anti-aging ingredients: Probiotic + Yeast Propagate Technology. Our skin-friendly yeast complex encourages faster cell turnover, enhances the skin’s protective moisture barrier, and fights off free radicals. Lactobacillus casei is a probiotic amino acid polypeptide that hydrates and exfoliates the skin as well as evens out skin tone and complexion. Through extensive research and testing, our scientific team has developed a proprietary formula that combines these powerful ingredients for maximum anti-aging effects.

Probiotics, well-known for their benefits in balancing the digestive system, when applied topically also encourage faster cell turnover, enhance the skin’s protective moisture barrier, and reverse photo-damage to the skin. The BeBella® line is water-based and contains neither sulfates nor added fragrances or coloring. Using the ‘Japanese method of layering,’ each topical product is applied one over the other in order to maximize the active ingredients. The oral supplements amplify overall health benefits to the skin when used in tandem with the topical products.
