Every couple of months, I share my new beauty discoveries with you. Some are truly revolutionary and some are just fantastic new formulas of products I use every day. These are all incredibly affordably priced & I can’t say enough good things about them. After trying these for a few weeks, I made a trip back to the drugstore to repurchase in bulk! Read on below for my full review & more details on each item shown here.
1) Sally Hansen Cuticle Rehab – $7.49
This melon-scented gel is infused with jasmine, rose & vitamin E to help hydrate & moisturize cuticles. The specially-designed applicator is ideal for on-the-go use; perfect for tossing in your purse!
2) L’Oreal Volume Filler Thickening Ampoules – $6.99
One of the unfortunate side effects of Lupus is hair loss, which I’ve been experiencing ten-fold. This is the first product I’ve tried that gave my strands lasting volume & made it look thick like it used to be.
3) Olay Regenerist Night Resurfacing Elixir – $28.99
This oil-free & fragrance-free serum absorbs quickly & works to resurface skin with a gentle glycolic peel. After using this for 3 weeks, I’ve noticed firmer, smoother skin + an improvement in the fine lines around my eyes.
4) Sephora Upside Down Mascara – $22
Though it takes some practice getting used to the unique tool, I loved how thickly it coated both the tops & bottoms of my lashes & gave them serious definition. Tip: use the brushes to clamp on either side of your top lashes and then brush all the way through, curling the wand upwards.
5) L’Oreal Silkissime Highlighter – $7.99
This formula glides on so smooth, won’t budge & makes it easy to highlight without messy creams or liquids. I use it on the inner corners of my eyes and on my brow bone (also comes in black, charcoal & plum eyeliner).
6) Almay Smart Shade CC Concealer + Brightener – $9.49
The perfect combination of a creamy concealer with the illuminating benefits of a brightener. The peachy shade corrects redness & covers blemishes while the pinkish hue brightens under eyes for an instant pick-me-up (I use 100 Light).
