Marc Jacobs Nail Polish

s1632348-main-hero

This nail polish is hands down one of the best nail polish formulas I have tried.  It lasted a full week without any chipping! Not a huge fan of the packaging though-when it gets low it’s difficult to get product on the brush.

T3 Whirl Trio

s1746940-main-hero

I’ve recently been loving loose curls that give more volume and bounce to my hair.  I have found that T3 products are the least damaging on my hair; plus they are easy to use!

Burt’s Bees Radiance Face Wash

61QxfLomE+L._SX522_

I actually prefer this face wash over most high-end face washes.  It removes ALL makeup and residue but leaves my skin moist.

MakeUp Eraser

If you’re like me, and you have sensitive skin, this is a must have!  It easily removes heavy makeup but doesn’t irritate the skin.  You can reuse and wash it.

Burt’s Bees Facial Cleanser

I prefer this face wash over any other face wash.  It removes everyday makeup but doesn’t strip my skin of moisture.

Mario Badescu Facial Spray

Filled with aloe, herbs, and rosewater, this facial spray is great for soothing and moisturizing skin.

Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask

This is one of the best feeling masks I have ever used.  It’s cooling and soothing to the skin.  If you have oily skin this product is your new BFF, however, I don’t recommend it if you have dry skin.

Let’s Talk Sunscreen

Protecting your skin from the sun is highly important.  Sun damage is the number one cause of premature aging of the skin.  Not all sunscreen are equal though. It’s important to use a sunscreen specifically for the face, and if you have sensitive skin you may want to use one designed for the face on your entire body.  Here are my favorite sunscreens for the face:

Coola Classic Face SPF 30                                    Lancer Sheer Fluid Sun Shield SPF 30

As for the body, I suggest mixing sunscreen in with your everyday body lotion for daily protection.  Just because your not in direct sunlight, doesn’t mean you are free from sun damage.  In fact, windows can amplify the effects of the sun. Here are my favorite sunscreens for the body:

Best Luxury Spa Night Products

I love a night of pampering, but I’m not a huge fan of going to the spa.  I find it more relaxing and peaceful to do a spa night at home.  Here are my favorite luxury spa night products:

Preventing Aging Without Going Under The Knife

Moisturize Skin

Moisturizing your skin will help your skin maintain elasticity which will give your skin a more youthful appearance. I recommend a facial oil like the Tatcha Camellia Oil because its easier for the skin to absorb.

Exfoliate Frequently

I use the PMD once a week to exfoliate my skin.  By exfoliating your skin you are promoting cell turnover.  You can get a PMD here.

Use Sunscreen

Sun damage is widely known as a major factor in aging. It’s important to protect your skin on a DAILY basis using a sunscreen for your face as well as your body. I have been loving the Coola Body Sunscreen and Face Sunscreen.
