As the year comes to an end and I am preparing for an out of town trip, I was quickly reminded of my favorite beauty products I have found over the last year that have become staples in my beauty routine. This is not an add, all words are my own and the products were selected based on my own likes and trials while using these products. Without further ado, let’s break down my five favorite beauty products of the year for you all!
Foreo Luna Facial Massager and Cleanser- My number one, top beauty product of the year, hands down, goes to the Foreo Luna Facial Cleaner Brush! This brush is amazing and is the reason I have gotten rid of my regular facial spinning brush. It honestly is that good! This sylacone cleansing brush gently cleans and massages away make up, dirt and oil and leaves your face feeling smooth, refreshed and is gentle enough to use daily. One of my favorite things about the Foreo Luna is how tiny and convenient it is for packing and taking on trips out of town. This is my top beauty find of the year and a product you will always find in my beauty bag.
Pixi Glow Tonic-My second, top beauty product of the year, I came across by accident with a sample when I ordered another product online. I was excited to try it and loved the fact the sample size fit easily into my beauty bag and I was able to take it with me on vacation. After two weeks of being away and only having the The Pixi Glow Tonic to use this toner quickly became my go-to toner and has replaced my much more expensive brand of toner. The Glow Tonic deeply cleans pores and although highly concentrated, is gentle enough to use every day. I’ve noticed the difference on my skin, with brighter, clearer skin. Not only is the toner great but it is very affordable and you can buy it at Target or Amazon, which makes purchasing so easy. I love this toner and would recommend it to anyone, especially anyone with oily skin trying to fight breakouts.
Tarte Maracuja C Brighter Eye Treatment- My third, top beauty product of the year can easily be rated as my first when I think of all the benefits I have seen from using this product. The Tarte Maracuja C Brighter Eye Treatment is a game changer. I have very sensitive skin and had to stop using several eye treatment creams because they were too harsh and I would often have an allergic reaction. This year, blame it on age, less sleep or whatever you may, I started to notice dark puffy circles under my eyes in the morning. I search and read reviews about the top products on the market and this eye treatment was ranked among the best. The reviews did not lie. I never wake up with dark puffy eyes anymore, seriously, never! My skin looks refreshed, rested and nice and plump. The eye cream is gently and I have never had an issue with it being too harsh or having a reaction to it. If you or someone you know is looking for a new eye cream this is one worth trying.
Mario Badescu Drying Lotion- My forth, top beauty product of the year, comes from a brand I had been familiar with, Mario Badescu, using several different products but I had never used this drying lotion. I decided to give it to try to see if it would help speed up my breakouts and get my skin back to normal. The drying lotion, made with salicylic acid and calamine is easy to dap onto skin with a q-tip and significantly helps to reduce swelling, effectively dries out your breakout spot and helps get rid of the spot much quicker than letting nature take it’s course. You would think because the drying lotion is so good at drying out breakouts it may be harsh on your skin or cause your skin to dry out, but it does not. One of the many things I love about it. This is the lotion you use if you have a blemish pop up the day before a big event! By morning you will notice a significant difference and will be glad you tried it .
Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 -My fifth, and last top beauty product of the year, goes to another Tarte product I cannot live without. I do not like putting foundation all over my skin and will usually just spot treat any blemishes and discoloration in my skin. This tinted moisturizer is awesome. Not only does it moisturize while providing sun protection but it is light and really helps even out my complexion without feeling thick or greasy. I love my tinted moisturizer! I can not tell you how many mornings I rub a little on my skin, add a little mascara and I’m out the door. If you want a light coverage with some sun protection this is definitely a tinted moisturizer you should try.
