Friday Five

Products I’m Loving 💚

For a belated “Friday Five” post, I thought I’d share some products I’ve sort of been obsessing over:

1. Embryolisse

Embryolisse is known as a 24-hour Miracle Cream, and can be used as a primer, moisturizer, and make-up remover. Although it is probably the most expensive “beauty” product I buy, Embryolisse has been totally worth every penny. My skin stays moisturized without feeling oily or like it has heavy lotion on it, and the overall quality of my skin is improving as well. I use it morning and night 🙂

2. Bath & Body Works Amber Blush Body Lotion

Amber BlushI just love the smell of Amber Blush. I tend to moisturize my hands with it, but I always rub a little extra behind my ears and on my wrists, too. Like most Bath & Body Works lotion, Amber Blush tends to keep its subtle scent throughout the day. (I love the Golden Shimmer Body Soufflé and the Sheer Perfume Mist, too!). Bath & Body Works describes the scent of Amber Blush as “a sensual blend of raspberry champagne, gardenia petals and magnolia blossom with a seductive kiss of crystallized amber and creamy vanilla suede.” So pretty!

3. Revlon PhotoReady Concealer

Since moving back to the states, I went through some sad, crazy breakouts for a good few months there. Things are under control now, but unfortunately I have a bit of scarring. So far, Revlon PhotoReady concealer is the absolute best concealer I’ve tried; PhotoReady creates the appearance of an even skin tone, almost completely hides any scarring, and lasts for hours. After trying several other brands, I was so pleased to find that Revlon PhotoReady worked for me.

4. Wet n’ Wild MegaLiner Liquid Eyeliner

Wet n' Wild MegaLiner Liquid Black

Several years ago, I read about Wet n’ Wild’s MegaLiner in a beauty magazine that toted it as an inexpensive liner that many makeup artists use on celebrities. I gave it a try, and have been addicted to it ever since! I love the Black MegaLiner because it lasts all day long, it can be used to create even, clean-looking wing tips, and the brush offers a lot of control.

5. Burt’s Bees Cleansing Towelettes

After a long day, sometimes (okay…often) I feel really lazy and don’t feel like washing my face. But that’s where Burt’s Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes really come in handy. These remove make-up, cleanse and tone, leaving my skin feeling fresh and moist. I love that the ingredients are recognizable for the most part, and that the wipes easily remove even makeup products meant to stay put (like the MegaLiner I just mentioned, for example!).

These five products have become key inclusions in my daily routine, and I’ve loved sharing them with you! Here’s a picture after using all of them (except for the Towelettes, because those come later, obviously 😉 )
