Every year I look forward to the Best in Beauty issue of Allure because truth be told where can you really trust when it comes to recommendations on beauty products. I’ve been burned by even some of my favorite companies in the past, and trust me when I say I’ve spent plenty of money giving things a try over the years. Here are a few products which I truly thing are life-changing and worth the investment. Happy beautifying!
SeaKind Fortify Cell Boosting Day Cream
This has become my go-to moisturizer! It has a subtle scent and is very lightweight and immediately gets absorbed into your skin leaving it hydrated. There is no problem layering makeup overtop immediately after application and it doesn’t cause my skin to produce oil or react at all. Active ingredients include a variety of marine active sea plant and algae extract known to stimulate the production of Hyaluronic Acid and collagen.
R+Co Pinstripe Intense Detangle Spray
My hair has a slight wave to it, but if I let it air dry it typically ends up frizzy. Typically I find that any products cause it to either get frizzier, become crunchy, or get oily. This product is a great detangler and makes my air-dried hair look slightly beachy with no frizz or product residue. Good to use before blow-drying as well.
Hush & Hush: Deeply Rooted Hair Growth Supplement
This supplement was developed to encourage hair growth and thickness which I definitely noticed during my usage, but I also saw a huge difference in my nail growth. I’ve never been able to grow my natural nails at all despite trying things like Biotin, other various vitamins, Nailtique, and strengthening topcoats. I took half of the recommended amount daily, and within a few weeks, I started noticing a measurable difference in nail growth. A few months in, my hair is strong and growing at a good pace, and my nails are all long, strong, and there is no longer any peeling or splitting.
This is a miracle worker for ingrown hairs on the bikini line or elsewhere on the body. With a mix of glycolic and salicylic acid, 1 or 2 applications will take care of any problem area with no pain.
Each & Every Lavender and Lemon Deodorant
I wanted to switch to a natural deodorant for a while, but many that I tried irritated my skin or were ineffective. Within a few days, I really began to like this one which has a nice light scent and keeps sweating under control. The formula is EWG verified and doesn’t contain alumium.
Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Salicylic Acid Exfoliant
Amazing product to use once every couple of weeks to remove blackheads and blocked pores. Used after toner in the evening, with a few days of application pores will unclog themselves without drying out your skin or causing redness. It’s incredible.
