Estēe Lauder

There are a few key products by Estēe Lauder that I always use and wanted to share with you!

Softening Lotion – I use it after I wash my face and it leaves my skin feeling smooth and refreshed!

Perfectly Clean Foam Cleanser – I leave it on for 3 minutes while I shower and helps to keep my skin clear.

Double Wear Light Foundation – I love this foundation because it’s lightweight, always looks natural and stays on all day! (I use Intensity 4.0)

Brush-On Glow Highlighter – To hide dark circles and brighten up your eyes! (I use 5/6 N Deep Neutral)

Automatic Brow Pencil Duo – This eyebrow filler allows you to easily trace your brow and fill it in. (I use 07-soft blonde)

These Estēe Lauder products are just a few of my favorites. My skin is normally very dry, so beauty products that hydrate my skin, but don’t leave it looking cake-y is very important to me. Luckily, the products above do just that.

Travel Must-Haves

Just two short weeks stand between me and paradise! I’m sure you can guess where Chris and I are going…Aruba!! We normally go for 8 days, 7 nights, but we both always feel like 8 days is not enough, so we decided to stay for 10 days this trip. I’m sure I’ll be eager to get home to my pups after 10 days. We are also going for longer this time because we are booking our wedding! Yes, destination wedding in Aruba! It’s our favorite place on earth. How could we not get married there? I promise, I will post all the details!

If you are traveling to a warm, sunny destination for vacation there are 4 products you must not go without. These are essential!

1. Bain De Soleil – The BEST tanning lotion on the market if you are looking to achieve a bronze tan during your vacation. It’s more of a gelée than it is a lotion. It works without fail every time. You can get 2 bottles on amazon prime for $22.37!

2. It’s A 10 – My favorite leave-in conditioner. A friend told me about this product years ago and I have used it ever since. I naturally have super knotty hair and this conditioner is my savior. I use it right after I shower and every time I get out of the water on vacation. You can purchase the 10oz bottle on amazon prime for $24.46. It is normally $34 at Target.

3. Baby Lips Lip Balm (Color: Cherry ME) – I love Baby Lips because it’s easy to apply and it gives your lips the perfect hint of color (especially when you are tan). Available in a 4 pack on amazon prime for $9.99!

4. Intuition Razor Refills – The only razor I use is the intuition because it allows you to lather and moisturize all while shaving your legs in one easy step. No need for shaving cream. When you’re packing for vacation, it’s so much easier to pack your razor and one small refill rather than your razor, another blade and shaving cream. You need to conserve the weight of your luggage for your shoes! I usually purchase my refills at Target!

These are 4 products that I always travel with! I definitely recommend you try them 🙂

Stay tuned for some vacation inspired outfits and cool new swimsuits that I am obsessed with!

GLOSSIER.

A friend recommended Glossier because she loved a few of their products, so i decided to see for myself. I ordered their generation g matte lipstick (color: jam), boy brow (color: blonde) and milky jelly cleanser. All of them exceeded my expectations! Yes, i am in love.

The generation g matte lipstick has the finish like a stain, but can be applied like a balm. I ordered the color Jam and it’s definitely something I can throw in my bag and apply at anytime. I’m so glad that I ordered it – i will definitely be purchasing the other shades. Below are a few pictures of the jam shade on me.

The boy brow gives me life. I’ve been looking for a good brow filler because my eye brows are blonde and barely exist. The boy brow is basically like mascara for your eyebrows. It works as a filler & shaper at the same time. I absolutely love it. Below is a photo with boy brow applied to my right eye brow and nothing on my left. Holy difference.

The milky jelly cleanser is amazing. It’s both gentle and strong. Leaving your face feeling soft and clean with the ability to dissolve your make up off of your face too. I used it after I showered and it made my face feel like new. I am super excited to use it again tomorrow!

I am looking forward to trying more of Glossier’s products. Stay tuned for more reviews!

Lush Tea Tree Toner


I just recently started buying Lush products because they pride themselves in using only the freshiest and most natural ingredients. They also don’t test their products on animals and they only buy ingredients from companies who do not commission testing on animals. They test their products on human volunteers. 

Besides being an ethically responsible company, i honestly do love their products. Their Tree Tea Water Toner is amazing! I use it in the morning before I put my make up on and it brightens my skin. My skin is either oily or dry, depending on the day, so this toner reduces excess oil without drying my skin. Made of tea tree, juniper berry and grapefruit waters – this toner leaves my skin feeling refreshed and brighter while also balancing my skin tone.

Its the perfect product to travel with. I don’t know about anyone else, but being on an airplane or in a car for a few hours makes my skin gross, so during and after my travels, i use this Tea Tree Water.

The cherry on top is that… it’s not a fortune!!! 

3.3 fl. Oz. $9.95

8.4 fl. Oz. $21.95
