2019 is off to a good start.
Anyone that knows me, knows I love to test and try new products. Thinking about all of different things I’ve tried this past month, made this post very pertinent! Instead of droning on, let’s just get into some of my favorite things from January…
Yes, I am aware of how pretentious this sounds; but hear me out. For so long, my face mask “applicator” was my hands, plain & simple. This month, I decided to pick up a mask spatula and my life was forever changed. First of all, super satisfying. Second, it saves you the mess of washing (& wasting) a bunch of clay mask off of your hands every time you apply!
Next up is me fully admitting that I jumped head-first onto the bandwagon. I give full credit to fellow blogger All Day Pretty for turning me onto drinking celery juice every morning. Guys, this stuff works wonders. It lowers inflammation, reduces bloating, heals acne & truly flushes out your system. I’ve noticed that I’ve physically been feeling better ever since introducing this magical juice into my life. Break out your old dusty juicer or head to your local health food store and give it a try. Bottoms up!
Ok, don’t judge me yet. You’ve seen this stuff all over your Instagram feed and maybe their advertising has worked on you as well. I used to think Sugar Bear Hair was another gimmick aimed towards millennials — until I tried it. Kylie Jenner was right, guys. This sh*t works (for me, at least.) If you don’t know, these are hair, skin & nails vitamins. I’ve always had short and brittle nails, like I would be embarrassed to get a manicure. After taking these the entire month of January, my nails have never been so long and healthy, EVER! Not to mention my hair has also grown rapidly as well! Obsessed.
I think after years of searching, I’ve finally found my go-to skincare company. Although I’ve been using Mario Badescu products for a while now, this month I’ve been using a ton of new stuff. I’ve been lucky to never have had horrible skin, but it does have it’s moments. I’ve found that their products like their Aloe Moisturizer, Seaweed Night Cream and all of their facial sprays have truly made a difference for my skin. Usually I like a skincare product because it just makes me feel good, but everything from this brand has actually been pumping out good results.
I don’t know why I’ve had an unhealthy obsession with lip balms lately, it might be the recent below zero temperatures in Indiana. Anywho, I’ve officially found my favorite one I’ve ever tried. Even though I think they need a major packaging re-design, Palmer’s Cocoa Butter lip balm has made it’s way into my product hall of fame. First of all, it’s literally the size of an oversized glue stick which I love because I never lose it. Second, it leaves my lips feeling moisturized all day. Perfection.
Well, there ya have it: my January favorites! Let me know you’re obsessed with any of these products as well!
