This round up of beauty products has helped to make us happier during the cold season. From makeup to skincare to fragrances, we have the scoop on the best beauty products to try in 2016.
1- Mac Velvetease Lip Pencil, $20.00
Available in 12 different shades, this lip pencil from Mac goes on super smooth. With the “ease of a mechanical pencil”, it is quick and simple to put on. We love the fact that there is a wide range of shades, making it easy to find one for any occasion. The shade shown here is “Frolic”. Just like all Mac products, the pencils are long-lasting and can withstand eating, drinking, and smooching. They are a total must-have for your purse or clutch at all times!
2- Gucci Bamboo Fragrance, $92.00
We first smelled this fragrance during December, and it went to the top of our Christmas list. The newest fragrance from Gucci is strong, feminine, and clean. With notes of bergamot, orange blossom, and sandalwood, it is a scent you will never get tired of. As with all Gucci fragrances, it is long-lasting without being overpowering. We also love how chic the bottle design is. Gucci does it again!
3 – GlamGlow GravityMud, $69.00
If you haven’t heard of GlamGlow, you’ve probably been living under a rock. The brand went seriously viral a few years back for its ingenious face masks. The newest addition to the line does not disappoint. GravityMud is a peel-off firming treatment that will leave your face feeling taught, lifted, and fresh. We love the fact that the formula goes on white, then turns to a brilliant silver. The futuristic mask is made with ‘mega-targeted’ ingredients to deliver immediate results.
4- Silk’n ReVit, $99.00
The Silk’n ReVit is the newest innovation in at-home skincare. It is a microdermbrasion device that will give you professional results without a trip to the salon! The winter season can be tough on skin, causing it to be dry and rough. The ReVit removes the top layer of dead skin with it’s revolutionary vacuum design. After a treatment, you will be amazed at how soft your skin feels and how fresh it looks! The smooth and glowy skin makes the perfect canvas for makeup of any kind.
5 – Vichy Ideal Body Balm, $22.00
As we mentioned above, winter can be hard on your skin. It is important to take some extra steps in order to ensure your skin stays hydrated 24/7. That’s where the Ideal Body Balm comes in. It offers intense moisturization to leave your skin feeling quenched and soft. Made with 10 essential oils and shea butter, it is said to absorb immediately into the skin. We recommend treating after your shower or before you go to bed for best results! If you prefer lotion over balms, the Silk’n Body Lotion is a great option for something lighter weight but still very hydrating.
6 – Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water, $18.00
People are loving this Micellar Water to remove makeup (check out the reviews on Amazon). To quote one reviewer “A little of this stuff goes a long way”. You don’t realize how much makeup you leave behind with traditional makeup wipes. This will ensure you get every last bit, which will lead to less breakouts and a better overall complexion. Just drop some onto a cotton bad and start wiping! It is refreshing, light, and great for sensitive skin.
7- SkinTreats Glow Peel Pads, $22.00
This UK based company became famous for it’s Glow Tonic. Now available in the US are the Glow Peel Pads, which are sure to become another cult favorite. The exfoliating pads contain 20% glycolic acid to reveal a fresh, glowing complexion. They help to minimize pores, prevent breakouts, and decrease fine lines. Add these babies to your skincare routine and you will have beautiful skin all the time.
8- Silk’n Flash&Go Express, $299.00
By now you are probably familiar with at-home hair removal. It is the most inexpensive and convenient way to achieve permanent hair-free results. The Express is small and compact, and offers 300,000 pulses, which is more than enough to treat your entire body! You simply glide the device along your skin while it releases intense pulses of light to deactivate growth of the hair follicle. As with any type of permanent hair removal, it takes some time to see results. Start treating with the device now to have smooth skin come Spring Break and Summer!
9- Bumble and Bumble Surf Infusion, $29.00
The post-holiday seasonal depression is beginning to sink in and we are dreaming of warm, sandy beaches and sunshine. Although that reality is a ways away, the Surf Infusion helps to lift our spirits while dreaming of summer! Made with a blend of tropical oils and sea botanicals, your hair will look shiny and healthy with a natural, tousled texture. It is great for hair that needs a little extra conditioning.
10 – Tom Ford Cleansing Oil, $80.00
Anything from Tom Ford requires a splurge, and we are so excited to try the newest product in the Tom Ford skincare line. The Cleansing Oil is made with jasmine flower oil, ginseng root, and other botanical extracts. In order to use, apply a small amount to your face, then massage gently in with a small amount of warm water. The scent is amazing, and your skin will feel luxuriously soft and seriously smooth.
