Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask $22

This product is just *chef’s kiss* I used my friend’s one night and was at Sephora the next day to get my own. Since I started using it regularly my lips rarely feel dry throughout the day. And it’s a nice little pampering touch to add to your nightly routine. I know the $22 price tag is a little concerning, but this is type of product that lasts because you use such a small amount.

PS I have the color Sweet Candy, but my friend had the OG Berry and I’d recommend that over Sweet Candy. Both amazing, though, of course. And there’s even more options.

Versed Day Dissolve Cleansing Balm $17.99

Why are you still using makeup wipes? I know you know they’re bad for you. Versed’s makeup melt is 10/10 and has antibacterial, eye-safe eucalyptus oil and vitamin E. It’s gentle, claims to work for all skin types, and removes makeup quickly. Stop hurting your skin and the earth with nasty makeup wipes and try this cruelty-free melt, you won’t regret it. I’m almost out of my second bottle.

Olaplex No. 7 Bonding Oil $28.00

We all know Olaplex is a God-send, and this oil is at the top of my favorite products from them. It protects colors, fights frizz, and triples as a heat protectant. Like the Versed balm, this stuff lasts a lifetime. It claims to work on all hair types, too!

CeraVe Hydrating Facial Cleanser for Normal to Dry Skin $4.99

Pores? I don’t know her. I randomly decided to try this cleanser instead of my usual CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser and I’m so, so glad I did. My skin is combination to oily, certainly not dry, but this product has worked wonders. It didn’t make my skin more oily (but, remember, even oily skin needs to be moisturized). What it did do is delete my pores. I have never used a product that did this, not even Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant that everyone raves about. Everyone’s skin is different and I know Paula’s Choice is some people’s holy grail, but this cleanser is what did it for me!

Trader Joe’s Ultra Moisturizing Hand Cream

Beware… this product may be discontinued. BUT, it does make appearances in holiday packs and variations so if you see any of the above, automatic snag. It is a perfect formula– smooth, non-greasy, and has a simple, clean smell. The hand cream is made with coconut oil, hemp oil, 20% shea butter, and is paraben free. It’s a staple in my daily routine. Moisturized, soft hands = good hands.

A good runner up to this product is Trader Joe’s Honey Mango Shave Cream ($3.99), for those who use shave cream. Most of TJ’s “For the Face & Body” products are extremely popular (and affordable!) like their Hair Serum, although I haven’t tried that one out.
