December beauty favorites: Products that brighten my day!


Lately, I’m all about using beauty products and tools that make me feel good and that I have a great time using daily. I’m a sucker for great packaging and design too. Seriously, I get excited when I use these products! Here are some of my latest favorites that I highly recommend:

Dove Beauty Bar– This product is amazing at leaving my body’s skin smooth and radiant like no other soap can. It has a unique blend of mild cleansers and signature ¼ moisturizing cream. I started seeing results in a week! My skin feels hydrated, moisturized, and healthy. There are so many great varieties of the Beauty Bar such as Pink, Unscented, and Cool Moisture.

Color Pop Cosmetics Lippie Stix– These lip formulas are so fun, and I love how they last for a long time. From neutrals to bright pops of color, they offer something for everyone. They come in creamy, matte, and ultra matte finishes with nourishing ingredients like shea butter and Vitamin E. The color names are catchy too such as Little Tings, Sike, and Happy Thoughts.

Oxygenetix Oxygenating Hydro-Matrix– This moisturizer is definitely my go-to. It soothes and protects skin from sun and environmental damage. It has hyaluronic acid and Sodium PCA that leaves skin moisturized all day. The product also gives you immediate hydration and reduces redness. It’s a gamechanger.

Biore Pore Penetrating Charcoal Bar– I finally found a bar soap that I can use on my face that isn’t too rich or over drying. It exfoliates and washes away deep-down impurities. The Charcoal Bar is infused with natural peppermint oil and scrubbing jojoba beads. I love how it leaves my skin tingly and refreshed.

EcoTools Start The Day Beautifully Kit– There are too many brushes out there to choose from so I like a kit takes out the guesswork. This brilliant kit has 5 cruelty-free brushes for creating full looks – Angled Foundation brush, Blurring brush, Defined Crease brush, Angled Liner, and Full Blush brush. Plus it has a storage case to keep me organized. It’s genius!

Artistry Signature Select™ Personalized Serum– This product is great for addressing multiple skin concerns and I love how it’s customizable. It’s a universal base serum that can be combined with Five Concentrated Amplifiers (Hydration, Brightening, Anti-Wrinkle, Firming, and Anti-Spot). The blended formula quickly penetrates and delivers healthy-looking skin. The bottle isn’t super bulky so I can have it with me on the go.

Mamonde Hydrating Beauty Water– I’m digging water-based products and this is definitely one of my favorites. It has 100% Damask Rose extract and smells amazing. The formula soothes, gently exfoliates, and hydrates skin. I use it right after I wash my face and before I put on moisturizer.

Olay Mist Ultimate Hydration Essence– Wow, this mist is the mother of all mists. It comes in a Calm variety to calmly radiate skin with Aloe Leaf, Chamomile and Vitamin B3. The mist is also available in an Energizing formula for waking up skin with Bergamot and Vitamin C. I use it any time of the day that my skin can use a pick me up or when I want to refresh my makeup look.

Winky Feliner liquid eyeliner in shade black cat– This cute little number is waterproof, doesn’t smudge, and gives me a perfect line every time. It also lasts all day, no joke. Meow!

Moroccanoil Treatment– This hair treatment product makes me so happy. It detangles, tames flyaways, and leaves hair smooth and shiny. Plus, it smells heavenly. I use it when I wash my hair and on blow dry days right before I use a hot tool.  What’s not to love?

Hope you enjoyed my picks. Let me know which one is your favorite!
