1. LUSH Ultrabalm
Omg. This product has become my lifesaver during these winter months. It’s an all-purpose balm that you can literally use on everything. My knuckles and lips get extremely dry and will crack. I keep this on my nightstand and apply it before I go to bed. I’ve also heard people with Eczema and Psoriasis swear by this product!
2. Safflower Oil
I’ve always preferred using natural products on my skin. I’m like a kid in a candy store in the health food store beauty aisle. Safflower Oil has amazing benefits for the skin. It’s full of linoleic acid, which is an essential fatty acid that your body uses to make ceramides–a key part of a healthy skin barrier that promotes elasticity and moisture retention. This product is one of the best (and most inexpensive) forms of linoleic acid. It helps to retain moisture, but isn’t harmful like some of it’s competitors (mineral oil and lanolin). This can be used on all skin types and research has shown it can be great on acneic skin. Not only do I use this on my face, I put some on my oatmeal in the morning, or use it for cooking. It can actually help get rid of extra inches because it attacks stubborn belly fat. This stuff is the whole shebang!
3. L’Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Black Lacquer
This mascara is a sister to my favorite mascara, L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black. It’s not quite as thick as Carbon Black and the brush is quite different. It really lengthens and separates, while Carbon black is great at thickening. I use this mascara and then add a coat of Carbon Black and my lashes are out of this world. It would be a challenge to beat this winning combo.
What’s even better about these products?! They’re all under $15!
I’d love to hear what you’re loving at the moment! What are your current beauty obsessions?
