As part of my job, I get get a ton of beauty products sent to me all the time. I know, tough job, but someone has got to do it 🙂 However, there are quite a few products that are staples of mine and I get slightly anxious when I run low. Today, I am sharing my holy grail beauty products I buy over and over again. They range from drugstore beauty finds to high end products. Warning: There are quite a few, but you can’t go wrong with any of them, in my opinion. Enjoy!
My Holy Grail Beauty Products I buy over and over again
PEACH & LILY SERUM | I am on my fourth bottle of this stuff and love it just as much. I will never be without it. It makes my skin look like glass, smooth, calm, plump and radiant. I use it day and night after cleansing and before moisturizer.
CHARLOTTE TILBURY EYE CREAM | This is the best nighttime eye cream I have ever used. It is nourishing and hydrating, but not too rich and does a number on fine lines and wrinkles. It is very generously sized and you get a lot of product for your money. One jar lasts forever.
BUTTER BRONZER | My love for this bronzer runs deep. It comes in quite a few colors to suit many different skin tones and is so flattering on your skin. No shimmer, but just a sheer, hydrating glow. I wear light bronze in the winter and bronze in the summer. The price is right, too!
L’OREAL PRO GLOW FOUNDATION | One of the best foundations on the market, period. It leaves skin even and glowy without looking cakey and the texture is so good! I recommend this to everyone with dry and mature skin. It is fabulous!
DEEP SLEEP PILLOW SPRAY | I spritz this on my pillow every night and I don’t know if it is in my head or what, but I swear it helps me sleep better. My husband and kids ask for it on their pillows at night as well. The smell is calming and soothing and lulls me to sleep. It signals my brain that it is time for bed. I take the travel set with me on trips and helps me feel more at home.
TINKLE RAZORS | I use these all the time to get rid of peach fuzz and exfoliate my skin and to get it ready for makeup application. They are cheap and a tota game changer when it comes to your skin. I use one 1-2 times and toss it in the trash. You can watch my tutorial here.
LIVING PROOF CHARCOAL SHAMPOO | I only wash my hair 1-2x a week and this stuff really gets out all of the dry shampoo and residue and give my hair a fresh start. I shampoo with it twice to make sure I get everything out and then condition as usual. My hair is soft and shiny and clean.
NARS SOFT MATTE CONCEALER | If I had to choose one concealer for the rest of my life, this would be it. It has a mousse like texture that is not drying and easy to work with. It works equally well on under eye circles as well as blemishes and is my go-to concealer for clients as well.
NATIVE DEODORANT | I made the switch two natural deodorant about 2 years ago and never looked back. I went through an initial adjustment period and tried several natural deodorants before landing on this one. It works great for me and I love the variety of scents they have. Grapefruit and Bergamot is my current favorite.
ALL NIGHTER SETTING SPRAY | If you have been here a while, you know how much I love this stuff. I will never be without it. I use it on clients and on myself personally and it makes your makeup bullet proof. I also use it to set eyeliner and help with concealer creasing. You can read more about how I use setting spray here.
LASH PARADISE MASCARA | If I am spending my own money, and my favorite high end mascaras are not on sale, this is my go-to mascara. It is a perfect dupe for the Better than Sex mascara and gives you vavavoom lashes for a fraction of the cost. So good!!!
NEUTROGENA HYDRO BOOST GLOSS | This is one of my go-to lip glosses and I purchase this in bulk. It is so rich and hydrating and stays on for a good long while, compared to some other glosses. My favorite everyday color is Radiant Rose and I love Flushed Coral and Pink Sorbet in the Summer.
The list continues with a few more products I use on the regular. I literally went through my daily routine for a few days and jotted down all of the products to make sure I didn’t forget anything. There are still some I didn’t share, but I will leave those for another time. So here goes another few products that are beauty staples in my life.
My Holy Grail Beauty Products I buy over and over again
GARNIER MICELLAR WATER | I have tried other cleansing waters, but I always go back to this one. It is gentle, yet effective and I always use it at night to take my eye makeup off and remove everylast traces of makeup after cleansing. In the morning, this is all I do to cleanse my skin before I apply my serum, moisturizer and sunscreen.
REAL TECHNIQUES MAKEUP SPONGES | These are the perfect size for applying my foundation and fit perfectly into all of my nooks and crannies. I sometimes feel that my beauty blender is a bit to large and these are just a bit smaller. The most important thing to remember is to use them damp, or they will soak your foundation right up and you will waste your money.
NARS THE MULTIPLE IN ORGAMS | I will never be without this. It is perfect for travel and is the prettiest, sheer flush of a peachy pink. It suits every skin tone and drys down to a powdery finish. This can be used on eyes, lips and cheeks and you can do your whole face with this stick in a pinch. Also gorgeous on collarbones.
OLAPLEX NO.3 | This stuff is amazing and it has changed my hair so much in just a few weeks. The first time I used it, I hated it because I didn’t use it correctly. It is important to follow directions and you will see a big difference if you hair is dry, damaged and brittle. It will make it softer, stronger and shiny again.
MILANI PLUMPING GLOSS | This is my other favorite go-to gloss. I love everything about it – the applicator, the texture and the minty tingle. It doesn’t really plump my lips, but it is nourishing and non sticky and I love it. My favorite colors are Prismatic Peach and Pink
IT COSMETICS CC CREAM | If you have been here a little white you know that I can not live without this stuff. It is my daily foundation and sunscreen in one. I love how it evens out my skin tone and covers my redness without looking heavy or cakey. I use the Bye Bye Foundation and CC Cream interchangeably and don’t notice much of a difference.
WOW DREAMCOAT | This stuff has changed my hair and may of your too. I get so many messages telling me how much you love this stuff. It is kind of like an at-home brazilian blowout treatment and lasts through 3 shampoos. It is heat activated and makes your hair smooth, shiny and frizz free.
SKYN ICELAND EYE PATCHES | I love these before and after events. They are cooling an really depuff the eye are andprep it for makeup. Another added bonus is that they catch any shadow fallout if you wear them while doing your makeup. Also, unlike some other eye patches, these stay put and don’t slide off your face. You can literally run a marathon in these and they will stay where you put them.
LANEIGE LIP SLEEPING MASK | This is a permanent fixture on my nightstand and I use this stuff every single night. My son loves it also and steals some almost daily. It is nourishing and hydrating and leaves my lips kissably soft. It has a pleasant berry smell and feels so good when you put it on. It comes in other flavors, but I love the pink one.
MAC PAINT POT IN PAINTERLY | This is like Spanx for your eyelid. It smooths and evens out the eye area and makes everything you put on top of it go on smoother and last longer. The colors look truer as well. Just think about it, you wouldn’t paint your walls without priming them, would you? same goes for your eyelids.
EUCERIN Q10 ANTI WRINKLE CREAM | This is one of the best facial cream on the market and one of my best beauty secrets. It is rich and luxurious and fights wrinkles without irritating my sensitive skin. I love that it is fragrance free and the cost is under $10.00 ajar. what a bargain!!!! I order from Amazon as they have the best price.
SECHE VITE TOP COAT | I do my own nails 90% of the time and have used this top coat for years. It never fails me. It dries your nails lickety split ( in about 10 minutes) and smooths out any mistakes. I would call this a nail finisher, rather than a topcoat. It leaves my nails glossy and shiny and they last me a week at least.
WORKING HANDS CREAM | I have probably gone through at least 50 tubes of this since discovering it a few years back. I am constantly washing my hands and this leaves my skin hydrated and soft, without feeling sticky. It sinks right in and is fragrance free, which is huge to me. Who wants their veggies smelling like rosewater? Not me. I order this in bulk and keep one in my car, at my desk at work on my nightstand and by the kitchen sink.
There you have it. The true heroes of my daily beauty routine and my holy grail beauty products I buy over and over again. I hope you enjoyed this roundup post. WHat are some of your, can’t live without staples?
