MUST HAVE BEAUTY PRODUCTS
We love spoiling ourselves with endless amounts of beauty products. #Truth.
But I think we can all agree that what we love more are products that simply WORK. There is nothing better than putting on a cream and feeling your skin immediately become smoother and firmer. Results are what we want. The following products are some of my favourites. I love them because they simply don't disappoint. Here are some products you're sure to find in my 2020 beauty stash.
1. EYELASH CURLER
Every girl's must have makeup tool. If you use mascara without curling your lashes it's either because you are gifted with naturally mega curly lashes or you are missing out on some MAJOR curl girl. Get your shi* together and get yourself to the store ASAP! You'll thank me later.
2. EGYPTIAN MAGIC
Whether your skin is dry, oily or normal it doesn't matter. You need this. This 100% organic and natural "balm" is made of all the right things and has been used by celebrities and beauty artists for over 20 years. The ingredients are as simple and natural as: Honey, Beeswax, Olive Oil, Royal Jelly, Bee Pollen and Bee Propolis. Ps. A little goes a long way and I recommend using it before applying your makeup (wait 5 minutes after applying before starting your makeup routine) or at night. If you think it's too oily don't panic... it's totally normal. You'll know what I mean when you wake up.

3. HOURGLASS SETTING POWDER
I've tried a few setting powders and this is by far my favourite. Once all of my makeup is applied (before my blush), I apply it lightly all over my face to set the makeup and heavily under my cheeks to create a hollow effect. I always let the powder sit for a bit while I continue with my finishing touches and then brush it off before heading out. You can get it here for 60$
4. ESPA SMOOTH AND FIRM BODY BUTTER
This is my absolute favourite body cream. It's rich and extra nourishing and smells incredible. I have a very sensitive nose so I don't like any creams that have intense smells. This one though is pure magic. You'll feel like you just left the spa. I discovered it while visiting the spa at Ritz Carlton in Orlando, Florida. Honestly, if it wasn't so expensive I would use it everyday. But I treat it like liquid gold. A little goes a long way! If you want to try it, you can get it here for 92$.
5. ESPA INVIGORATING SALT SCRUB
As you might have guessed it by now, ESPA is one of my favourite skincare lines. And this is my absolute favourite Spa Body Scrub. Not only does it exfoliate your skin well but it leaves you with a cool effect and smells divine. Get it here for 71$.
6. LUSH COFFEE BODY SCRUB
Absolutely LOVE this scrub. I received this as a gift from a girlfriend of mine and I've been using it ever since. Not only is this scrub super efficient but it's so cheap. I use this to exfoliate my face 2-3 times a week. The smell of coffee wakes me up and makes my face feel super refreshed. The cooling effect is incredible too. And the best part is that it's Vegan. Get it here for 12$.
7. ALPHA-BETA DAILY PEEL by Dr Dennis Gross
If you read my post on my top 2020 Beauty Treatments, then you know I absolutely love this product. The Alpha-Beta Peel is basically a chemical peel that you can do in the comfort of your own home. I use the extra-strength one (red packaging) but there is also a Lighter version called the "Universal" (orange packaging). If you're not sure if you will like it, you can get a "mini size" package of 5 treatments for only 22.50$. Get it here.
8. BEAUTY BLENDER SOLID PRO
My latest discovery is this Black Soap which I received as a sample at Sephora. As soon as I finished the trial size I went ahead and bought the jumbo size version. It cleans my brushes and my beauty blender super quickly and efficiently. Worth every penny. Really...! If you're a brush cleaner freak like me, you can get it here for 58$.
9. FRUCTIS PIXIE PLAY CRAFTING CREAM
When my hair is coming close to needing a wash, I often wear it back in a bun. I separate it in the middle and use a gel to slick the hair back. I struggled a lot with finding a good hair gel because I hate heavy ones and I don't like it when my hair looks like it has heavy product in it. I love the natural look. But, obviously its hard to keep your baby hairs from showing unless your hair is naturally straight and silky. So... The Fructis cream is my definite go-to for the slicked back look. Its texture is soft, super light and the gel does the job really well. Best of all, it's NOT sticky. I also love the "wet" look it gives. Did I mention it costs less than 5$... You're welcome!
