The holidays are a super busy time for everyone with travel often ramping up. And as I’m sure you know, traveling can do a number of unpleasant things to your skin, especially in the winter. For example, greater exposure to bacteria and the lack of humidity in the air, can result in dry, dehydrated, and dull skin. (Ever looked in the mirror and thought your skin looked gray?!) If you’re looking for the perfect solution to keep your complexion in shape as you’re on the go, travel-friendly face masks are a saving grace. I recently shared the new Clay Stick Masks by Olay and brought them to Vermont with me. And I love that the solid stick form makes them a whole lot more convenient to pack in your carry-on bags! Read on to find out which ones you need.
You guys know how much I love summer by now, but I have been looking forward to the start of a new season. And with a new season comes new beauty obsessions. I don’t know about you, but the right scent is like the perfect accessory in a bottle – and it needs to change from season to season just like anything else in your wardrobe. As a self confessed fragrance enthusiast, I cherish those that enhance one’s natural beauty with a single beguiling smell. I guess that explains why it’s so hard to resist one bottle after another. However, I’ve recently narrowed down a new signature perfume for fall which is available during Belk’s Beauty Event!
Cooler temperatures will be hitting the scene soon, and that calls for an updated skincare routine. You guys know I’ve been focusing a lot on skincare especially anti-aging products. That’s led me to doing a lot of research on safe and effective skincare brands and ingredients. When I came across Clarins Double Serum, it fit the exact description of what I was searching for – fast and visible results, safe, and multitasking with a focus on anti-aging.
I decided to take the plunge with Clarins’ 7-Day Double Serum Challenge and wanted to share the results with you guys. Scroll on to learn more about it.
While in Napa, I decided to do something a little bit different and snap what’s inside my makeup bag when I travel. You may have seen my acrylic makeup organizers in previous posts – they hold SO much stuff y’all. But I only travel with my 100% can’t-live-without products. So before I do a deep dive into my entire makeup collection, I though it might be more important to point out the ones that I bring with me on every single trip. Click through below to see my must-have travel beauty products that can all be found at Nordstrom!
This week (8/26), Nordstrom is offering beauty gifts with purchase that I’ll be outlining under all of the different brands eligible in today’s post! It’s a fun way to try out new products that you might not have known about from your go-to brands!
Buying beauty products has always been a tricky process for a few reasons. First, my skin can be fickle and sensitive, and then there’s the pressure of buying full size goodies that may not work. That’s where beauty boxes come into play. I recently subscribed to PLAY! by Sephora, so I can test out the best trending products before making a full commitment. And since doing so, I’ve been uber excited to see what’s coming each month. It’s seriously the best way to try new brands and products from skincare to makeup and fragrance to hair care.
