Favorite Beauty Products of 2019



If there is one thing that gets me all kinds of excited and makes me want to remortgage my house for, it’s beauty products! Since making an allowance as a 12 yr old girl, I would save up for two things: $0.05 sours (enough to make my tongue bleed of course) and beauty products from the local drug store.


I had elated pride that my bedroom shelves and drawers mimicked that of my very own Shoppers Drug Mart and that every Seventeen Magazine “must-have” beauty product was at my fingertips.


Fast Forward to life as an adult and being the one in charge of everything down to the toilet paper we use...and you’ll find that the need to own every beauty product resides pretty low on the totem pole. Nonetheless, I still prioritize the fractional amount of products that I do invest in and use as my go-to’s!


To put these products into some kind of context, here are my basic morning and evening facial routines.


Morning:

Cleanse with a moisturizing cleanser

Toner

Antioxidant / Vitamin C Serum

Eye cream

Spot Treatment (if needed)

Lite Moisturizer

Sunscreen


Evening:

Oil cleanser (good for getting all the makeup off)

Gentle Exfoliating cleanser

Eye cream

Treatment serum / facial oil

Night moisturizer (heavier than my daily one)

Lip sleeping mask


Weekly:

Deep exfoliation 2x a week

Face Masks 1-2x week



Here is the LONG list of the products that I had on repeat over 2019 and am still using today.

FYI - In 2020 I will be sharing more CLEAN products (stated testing NATURAL brand already) as I continue to find ones I love using. I am working towards building a safer more streamline set of beauty products that are certificate clean and more multi-use as I want to cut down on the number of products I have to buy and store in my home.


Shine on sweet friend,
