The amount of beauty products popping up out of nowhere is completely off the charts. I feel every week there’s a new trend or a new product that caught Instagram fame and just completely took a life of its own. Between orgasm blush (like what??), micellar cleansing, and the cult favorite hyaluronic acid it can be hard to know what will leave your skin feeling perfect enough to win a beauty award.
I can admit a few times that I’ve found myself caught up in the moment and buying things I’ve seen online because…social media. I definitely learned my lesson the hard way on that with breakouts and have been more aware of what I’m using and doing better research. There are days when I don’t have to worry about finding new products and I just stick with my absolute go-to’s.
These 4 beauty products are some of my favorite beauty products and what you should be obsessing over right now.
5 Beauty Products To Obsess Over Right Now
NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer
This NARS moisturizer can be worn alone as your foundation and helps conceal dark spots and leaves your skin smooth and glowing. I love on days when I have a few errands to run or just going out for a quick second and don’t want to put on a ton of makeup this comes in handy – it’s super easy. It’s super lightweight and leaves my skin looking smooth.
Fenty Beauty PRO FILT’R Soft Matte Longwear Foundation
Unless you’ve been living under a rock you should definitely already know the amazing benefits this foundation can do for your skin. When I do have time and want to get dolled up this is one of my foundations right now that does the job. It gives your skin a soft matte look and my favorite part is it’s oil free. It’s so hard for me to constantly wear foundation because I always have an oily face within a few hours and it’s just annoying.
BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Prima3000
If you don’t know, I stopped with relaxers about three years ago. I usually opt for the protective styles but if I am wearing my hair I love a good blowout. Now that I’m officially transitioned I want to take the best care of my hair, especially when I’m styling it. My stylist shared with me the flat iron she uses to get my hair so silky pressed. This does the job in under 30min.
I’m now a fan of the entire BaByliss line and am looking forward to adding more to my hair care tools favorites.
CHI Iron Guard Thermal Protection Spray
This is so important and I’m always using this when using any kind of heat to my hair. Heat damage is real and I’ve experienced it before to know a protection spray is always needed. I’m currently loving this thermal protection spray from Chi.
While it doesn’t completely prevent heat damage, you can use your protectant by spraying on dry or damp hair before you start styling your hair. Spray only on your hair, avoiding your scalp. You can comb your hair after application to make sure the product spreads evenly across the hair.
I love a good moisturizing cream and moisturizing lotion and CeraVe is just that and more. If you’re looking for something just to add to you nighttime skin care routine – this is it! It’s also great for the summer time or dry skin because it keeps your moisturized but is super lightweight.
Shop The Post
Having your go-to products not only saves you time but it also saves you a ton of money. I’m not oblivious to the fact that some things that may work for me absolutely do not work for others. What’s the solution then? You guessed it—beauty boxes.
Luckily, in recent times tons of companies have been created to let you test out products via a subscription box without committing to a full-sized product at full-size price. I’ve found great additions to my favorite beauty products through these.
Some amazing beauty boxes:
If you’re looking for vegan solutions, here you go! Petit Vour is a beauty subscription box that showcases a range of cruelty-free products. Each box contains a mix of sample products and full-size items from unique, high-quality, standard progressive brands.
If you want to travel from the luxury of your home – there’s something for you. Based in the UK, Look Fantastic is a monthly beauty subscription curated around a theme.
Subscribers can expect to receive at least 6 skincare, haircare, makeup and body products with each delivery. Aside from products and great product discounts, you also get a copy of that month’s UK version of Elle Magazine, a great way to stay in the know of international trends from a number of global beauty brands.
BeautyFIX by Dermstore.com is known for its incredible-quality and aesthetician-approved skincare items, but it’s good for the occasional makeup surprise as well. In each beauty subscription box, you can expect to see a healthy mix of full-size and deluxe-travel-size products—including skin care, hair care and cosmetics handpicked by beauty experts and delivered right to your door.
I hope that between my favorite beauty products along with my favorite subscription boxes that you find something tailored to you, your routine, and your lifestyle. Using these tried and true products can save you tons of money and frustration.
