Time’s ticking: enter to win the laundry survival kit; packed with all the items you could totally use just hate to buy. $65 value!
Here are two of my latest beauty finds (though I know some have been fanatic about these products for years!). I finally tried them in a sample size thanks to Birchbox and have recently bought the full gorilla! (huh, Birchbox? Must read now!).
Two new finds: one helps keep make-up put and the other helps me totally remove it.
Philosophy Purity face wash: My skin felt instantly cleaner and more refreshed after just one wash! Even though it’s a little pricey for moi ($20; I’m such a drugstore face wash gal!), I’m a total convert. I now rotate this with my gentle St. Ives exfoliator while in the shower. You get the deep clean without any harsh feel. And, no joke: this has about 6,000 purely, glowing reviews on Sephora.
Smashbox Photo Finish primer: Because of the somewhat steep price (about $36), I put off buying this for ages. I finally went for it after testing it out in a sample size because it makes such a difference! Apply under foundation, it gives your skin this smooth, flawless finish. I swear my skin looks so much better, my make-up lasts longer and I feel more polished. People swear by this and now I totally get the hype. If you’re not ready to take the plunge, head to a Sephora if you have one nearby to test/ask for a sample; they usually do!
