As excited as I am for this new year, 2019 was such a great year for me! For a little life update: a few months ago, my long-term boyfriend and I moved to California together, I finished working on my first feature length film for Netflix, I spent amazing time with family for the holidays and much more!
2019 was great for movies, shows and the reason why we’re here, products! This was the year that I really took my skincare, wellness, sustainability and beauty seriously! With that being said, I wanted to share the products that I will continue to use this new year – even after my product clean out!
Let’s start with my favorite makeup product of the entire year. Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer. Guys, this stuff this my absolute favorite! I consider myself really not great at makeup. For some reason, I just can’t figure it out. But this bronzer is so easy and ends up looking flawless when you just need an extra boost on the face. I will continue to purchase this bronzer until I find something better – but that hasn’t happened yet!
For skincare, I still am holding onto my favorite products from Mario Badescu, Drunk Elephant, Dr. Dennis Gross, etc. that I’ve raved about in past posts – so I won’t repeat myself! But, I will let you know about my Hey Dewy Portable Facial Humidifier. This was a Christmas gift that I have been using ever since I unwrapped it – I absolutely love it. It is not a facial steamer, it actually is more of a cold mist. I use it after a workout or a warm day, but I also love having it run in the bathroom when I’m doing my skincare routine or my makeup. It just adds an extra boost of hydration to your skin and is so cute & small & portable.
If you guys haven’t read my post about my favorite sustainability products – check it out! I purposefully left out this product because I wanted to shine a bigger light on it. My Baggu bags are my very favorite. First off, they are adorable and second, we’re reducing our plastic use – yay! Baggu has such a range of designs for their reusable bags that I use for grocery store and farmer’s market trips! They are so spacious and have been my favorite for years now! Go get some to keep in your car – you won’t regret it!
Now let’s dive into a couple wellness products that have helped me this past year. Some of you know that I work on a film set for sometimes 16 hours a day. My body pretty much constantly aches and nothing seemed to help. My boyfriend stopped at a wellness store after work one day and picked up a CBD bath bomb for me – and oh my goodness, perfect. It was from Kush Queen and not only smelled amazing, but really relieved the pain I was experiencing in my joints. I highly recommend checking it out if you have any sort of joint or muscle pain.
Last, but certainly not least, I became obsessed with another wellness product this past month actually that I can no longer picture my life without! I splurged and got a Theragun, you guys… This year, my boyfriend and I skipped Christmas presents and decided to take the leap and get a G3 Theragun to share (he has major back pain from corporate America life). If you’re not familiar, a Theragun is a high-powered massage gun that truly gets into any tight muscles or aches that come up. After sitting at my computer for hours, I get that little kink in my lower back – 2 minutes with this thing gets it right out! It definitely is pricey, but invest in yourself! We truly will get our money’s worth out of this thing!
Well, there you have it! I wanted to share some of the products that I loved during 2019. I of course have so many more skincare and wellness products that I fell in love with – but I tried to avoid repeating myself and wanted to talk about some things that I never have before! I hope this was helpful and that you learned about some new products to possibly try out this year! What were your cult-faves of 2019? Let me know in the comments down below!
