Current Beauty Loves & Likes

Between having some bad days and the constant urge to shop, my online purchases have been rolling in lately. I thought I would do my good deed as a woman and fill you in on what I'm loving...and what I'm only liking or may not purchase again. 

I have been looking for a product that helps make me look more refreshed in the morning, and this is it.  The retinol works deep down to help prevent wrinkles, give an even skin tone and manage breakouts (that unfortunately have been worse during that time of the month). The Night Revolve Retinol Serum has been a lifesaver for my tired skin lately. I've professed my love for Valentia products before, and this one doesn't disappoint either. I swear by their stuff!

Not only is the packaging cute on these vitamins, but wow do they work wonders. I've been using the Eu Natural Vibrance Vitamins to make my hair stronger and healthier and the results are great. If you're looking for something to help stimulate hair growth and strength, Eu Natural has a 90 day guarantee, so you can try them out risk free! It's a win- win for sure. The biotin has done wonders for my hair, and then I had a bold moment and cut four inches off Friday...nothing like needing a change!

Revitalash has been in my bathroom cabinet for about six months. After having lash extensions (twice) I did see some breakage to my natural lashes. Revitalash has made my lashes amazing again and really helped the length. I wasn't noticing results at first, so give this product at least  30 days to kick in and use it religiously. I have debated posting about the truth on lash extensions, so let me know if it's something you're interested in hearing.

Just last week I purchased the Too Faced Lip Injection in Spice Girl from Sephora. I am loving the color, but it's not making my lips look any different. It definitely tingles and smells awful in the tube, like burnt skin from a tanning bed (no joke) so I'm not thrilled at all with this purchase. I read mixed reviews but overall it got 4 stars, so I went with it and definitely won't purchase it again. 

On the opposite, I am loving the NYX Liquid Suede in Cherry Skies. I grabbed it in the grocery store (another thing I love about NYX products) before our trip to Boston and have had some great compliments on it. It's the perfect fall color and comes at a great price too. Of course, Lindsay recommended this one, she always has great tips.

I picked up these Sephora Cleansing & Exfoliation Wipes in store and have been pretty pleased with how well they work. I got the Coconut Water scent and am anxious to see what the others smell like. I was paying $9 or $10 for 20 wipes of the Dickinson's brand I was using so this is definitely more for my money, and they have them at my local Sephora where I don't have to wait like I was for the other brand from Amazon.

Another Sephora purchase from the past few months is the Boscia Luminizing Black Mask and was really excited to get in the mail. Unfortunately I've been pretty bummed by the results. I don't notice much of a difference after using it and I hate how messy it is, especially in a bathroom with white counters. I think I'll stick to my other stockpile of masks in between using this one up.

Last but not least is my new saving grace for this curly head. One of the perks of my job is learning about so many beauty products in the salon and spa industry. We had an Oribe educator come in and give us some product knowledge. Little did I know that this Oribe Curl Control Silkening Creme would be my new best friend. When my hair was at my previous length I used about a nickel size on towel dried hair for the most beautiful blowout that lasts about 6 days. Only on days 5 and 6 would I need a little dry shampoo. I love how soft it made my coarse, curly hair too. Try it out if you're looking for a new straightening product curly girls!

Tell me, what are some of your current beauty loves?

Special thanks to BrandBacker for supplying a few of my latest loves described in this post. All opinions are always my own and sometimes may be bold, but especially brutally honest. ;)
