As I promised, here is my favorite products from January. I was going to have the favorites only be beauty but I had a few things that I got for Christmas that weren’t beauty that I wanted to share. Maybe we will say, beauty favorites, with a twist of inspiration!
1 TREE HUT: SHEA BODY BUTTER
This is heaven in a jar. There is really no other way to explain this! I got this for Christmas and honestly is something I would probably never buy but I will be re-buying this gem! My favorite thing to do with this is to take a bath in epsom salts and then after getting out, when my skin is nice and soft, apply this butter. The scent I have is Hawaiian Kukui and I love that I can have a touch of summer, even in the winter!
2 NYX: HD CONCEALER
I had been looking for a concealer that brightened my under eye as well as concealing well. I randomly happen to purchase this, after reading some reviews and have fallen in love. I actually got two colors but the color I use the most (and shown here) is LIGHT. I also use this in several areas as a highlighter. The nice thing is that a lot of times Ulta will have this brand at buy 1 get 1 50% off and this can also be used with their flyer coupons. Another nice bonus is NYX is always super responsible on price!
3 YOUNG LIVING: AWAKEN
So if you are like me, you hate mornings. And when I say hate mornings, we really do not get along. Couple that with the afternoon crash and I needed to find something that would perk me up. I had been hearing from my oil family that awaken was a great one to try. I typically just put a little on my temples, behind my ears and on my wrist and in about 10 minutes I am ready for another round of the day! Added bonus: If you need help staying awake while driving, apply a little awaken on a clothespin and clip it onto your vent. No more dozing during long drives!
4 BIG SEXY HAIR
So last fall I sort of fell into this hairspray. I had always heard of Big Sexy products but never tried them. Ulta had Big Sexy hairspray as apart of their Black Friday sales for $6.99. I thought for that price I could give it a try and I am so glad I did! It is now one of my favorite go to sprays! Keep an eye on Ulta’s sales as they routinely will include this!
5 CHASERS OF THE LIGHT BY: TYLER KNOTT GREGSON
This is the exception to the beauty segment that I thought was worth the exception! I got this book for Christmas as well, after hearing so much of it on Instagram. Between being so busy with business, house work and kids, I never get a chance to sit down and read much anymore. This book was perfect! It let me zone off and day dream but didn’t have me stuck getting through chapters. Such a great book to have around for a pick me up inspirational moment!
6 BENEFIT: THEY’RE REAL! PUSH-UP LINER
So I included this liner because I had been DYING to try it! I remember the very first time I saw this in an AD, I immediately had told my mom, that will be mine! I got this in a bundle deal in December during a sale that Ulta was having. I have only used it a few times. I love the color, the smoothness but I will admit I find it a bit hard to control. I left it on my beauty favorites because it might be the user not the product! I will keep trying on this and report back!
7 BENEFIT: THEY’RE REAL! MASCARA
Now this is HANDS DOWN my favorite mascara that Ulta carries! I remember I randomly picked this up to try last year and I have been addicted ever since. The wand is super flexible which gives you great coverage and control. It also has a unique tip on the end that helps you separate the lashes, to give a flawless look.
8 ANATOMICALS: PEPPERMINT AND LEMON HAND SOAP
I had to save this product for last. I got this gem for Christmas as well and holy smokes does it smell great. Even though the scent is great my reasoning I wanted to include this find in my favorites was because of this company’s branding. After falling in love with their bottle, I dug deeper into their social media. Their branding is very specific across all boards, which is always a bonus for a company. I was slightly disappointed to see that their social media overall falls shorts but they definitely get an A+ from me in their branding and packaging.
