The end of Winter is truly killing my skin, it’s dull and lifeless and just generally not looking that great. I even have a significant amount of acne, something I haven’t had in YEARS (if ever!). I don’t know if my skin is rejecting my old routine or what but I decided to switch up most of my beauty products to see if that would make a difference. Today I’m sharing the 8 that I stuck with all month and the beauty products you should try!
Also I’m doing a really fun (super easy to enter) giveaway on my Instagram tonight! So head over and look for the photo of the 8 beauty products you should try this month and get all the details! The photo should go live around 9 pm tonight…Good Luck!!
Smashbox Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer $24 c/o – So you’ve seen mention this before in my 5 Lipstick Trends You Have to Try this Winter and since introducing it to you guys I haven’t stopped using it. I absolutely love the look of bright red and hot pink matte lipstick looks and there’s no reason to buy new matte shades when you can take your favorite lipsticks you already have and turn them matte. What I love the most about this transformer is that it doesn’t leave your lips dry like most over matte lipsticks, it’s actually super silky and velvety and very comfortable on your lips!
Neutrogena Rapid Clear Treatment Pads $6.99 – I’ve been breaking out a lot around my mouth and on my chin lately and literally nothing was working to make my acne go away. I was browsing Target one day and decided to take a chance on these. I remember using these (or a similar products) when I was a teen, but haven’t really had a problem with acne in years so I stopped using them. I love that I can just wipe the enter area where I’ve been breaking out instead of just spots which has really cut down on breakouts. While I haven’t completely cleared up my face, these are definitely making a huge difference! (Get a $10 giftcard with a $30 skincare order online at Target)
Stellar Face Sculptor Contour and Highlight Palette $37 c/o – I was looking to up my bronzer game and saw this in a gift bag I received over NYFW so I figured I would give it a try and I was not disappointed. These are the silkiest powders I’ve ever used before. The bronzer is pretty potent but it blends really great and the highlighters are to die for! This line doesn’t have too many products yet so I’m excited to see where they take the brand!
Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb The Antioxidant Super Moisturizer SPF 30 $16.99 c/o – I’m a huge fan of the whole Moisture Bomb line from Garnier, but I threw this particular moisturizer with SPF 30 in my bag for my Florida trip and I haven’t stopped using it since. It’s light and hydrating and not at all like other face sunscreens I’ve used in the past. It was the perfect base for makeup and didn’t make my face shiny or sticky like other sunscreens. I’m definitely using this all Spring and Summer long! If you’re someone like me who is prone to forgetting sunscreen on a daily basis this is a great option because it eliminates that extra step!

Paula’s Choice RESIST Weekly Resurfacing Treatment with 10% AHA $36 c/o – My skin has been looking extra dull lately and my daily exfoliating just wasn’t cutting it to brighten my skin. I swapped my regular exfoliator for this leave-on exfoliant one a week and I’m starting to see an improvement. It has age fighting antioxidants that improve skin’s texture and reveal vibrant, radiant skin. It works just like any other exfoliator to gently remove dead skin cells, but instead of scrubbing your face with it you simply apply it right to your face and leave it on overnight.
Perricone MD Cold Plasma+ Face $149 c/o – Okay so full disclosure I haven’t see a ton of results from this yet, but the reviews are amazing so I’m sticking with it. It’s definitely pricey, but I have a few wrinkles on my forehead that I’m looking to smooth out so I’m crossing my fingers this does the trick. Just a heads up, this isn’t a moisturizer, it’s more of a treatment, so make sure to top it with your moisturizer. (Ulta is offering a free gift with purchase!

POP Beauty Flashadow $12 c/o – I’m all about having fun with my beauty looks and POP Beauty’s new Flashadows are the definition of FUN! These liquid glitter eyeshadows are super sparkly and literally don’t budge once you put them on! I even used them at a dance competition over the weekend on the girls’ faces and they were a huge hit! If you’re looking to add a little sparkle to your look then these are definitely for you! Definitely one of the best liquid eyeshadows I’ve ever used.
Garnier SkinActive Soothing Facial Mist with Rose Water $6.99 c/o – If I have somewhere to go after work I like to touch up my makeup before I go. I don’t necessarily like to just add more makeup, sometimes my skin just needs a little refresh and life to it and that’s where facial mists are super handy! This rose water mist instantly wakes up my skin and preps it if I need to add a little more concealer or bronzer. This formula is perfect for sensitive skin and redness AND it’s vegan, and obviously it smells amazing. (Get a $10 giftcard with a $30 skincare order online at Target)
