Welcome to the eleventh post in my newest series, My Five Favorite Beauty Products. You guys are blowing me away with your comments and support from these posts. It’s great to see what other people love as far as beauty products, right?!?! If you’re new around here, let me explain what this series is all about.
I’VE ASKED SOME FELLOW LADIES IN THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY AS WELL AS FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO SHARE THEIR 5 FAVORITE BEAUTY PRODUCTS. SOME PEOPLE ARE “BEAUTY OBSESSED” WHILE SOME ARE JUST TRYING TO GET BY WHEN IT COMES TO BEAUTY. I’VE GOT A REALLY DIVERSE GROUP OF WOMEN (OF ALL AGES) WHO ARE PARTICIPATING AND I’M SO EXCITED TO SHARE THEIR RESPONSES WITH YOU GUYS! WE’LL BE TALKING ALL ABOUT HIGH-END AND DRUGSTORE MAKEUP, HAIR PRODUCTS, SKINCARE AND WHO KNOWS WHAT ELSE. IT WILL BE EVERYTHING BEAUTY!
I “met” Ricci in a blogging group…I think!!!?!?! HA! Sometimes it’s been so long that I honestly forget how I’ve come into contact with some of these amazing women. Anyways, I adore Ricci. I’m constantly turning to her for book suggestions, her hair is #goals, she’s beautiful and she’s so very nice! She recently went on a health journey and has lost a ton of weight! I’m so proud of her!!

How “into” beauty are you?
What is your first favorite product and why did you choose it?
drybar’s Triple Sec Texture Spray. I am hair product obsessed and this is the first texture spray I used that I absolutely fell in love with. It smells amazing and gives good texture without making your hair feel dirty or gross. Plus it’s clear so us dark headed ladies can use it and not worry about looking like we have a head full of gray hair!
What is your second favorite product and why did you choose it?
Farmacy’s Clean Green Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm. I recently made the switch to more natural skincare products and I love this cleansing balm better than any I have ever used (even my old non-natural faves). It really dissolves all of the makeup on my face, including my super stubborn mascara, and yet is super gentle at the same time. My face is always so soft after using this product.
What is your third favorite product and why did you choose it?
Tarte’s Maneater Mascara. This is actually a recent fave but this mascara gives my pitiful lashes SO MUCH length and volume! The brush is a little weird to get used to at first, I usually like a big fluffy mascara brush, but once you get used to it there is no going back. I find this mascara is best used on its own with no lash primer.
What is your fourth favorite product and why did you choose it?
C.O. Bigelow’s Rose Salve. This is an all purpose slave that you can use anywhere you need some moist but I love to use it on my lips. I use it all year round and it really helps to keep my lips super soft and moisturized. It smells amazing and it stays on for a long time. I keep it in my kitchen, bathroom, purse, work bag, car, gym bag, etc. It really is that good y’all!
What is your fifth favorite product and why did you choose it?
Soap & Glory’s Hand Food Hydrating Hand Cream, original pink scent. I work at a hospital as my full time job and I wash my hands about a million times a shift. My hands stay super dry and this is the only lotion/cream that works to keep my hands hydrated all throughout my 12 hour shift. Plus it smells so good!! Not overpowering and not too girly.
