11 Favorite Beauty Buys of 2021

Jan 11, 2022

I wanted to share some of my favorite beauty buys/finds from 2021! These are products that I have bought on repeat and will continue to buy! I am always testing beauty products and these were real standouts to me!

Dr Lara Devgan C + B + E Ferulic Serum | I love this serum. I also still love and use the Skinceuticals CE Ferulic but I like that this one has vitamin B in it as well. I apply this first thing every morning. This helps with wrinkles, evening skin tone and collagen. This is the one product I never skip!!

OSEA Antiaging Body Balm | I have rebought this body balm 4 times now. I use this as my daily lotion and love it. It is so hydrating and helps firm your skin as well. Osea is a clean line that I really like. Lotion is one product I always try to buy from a clean line since your skin absorbs so much of it.

OSEA Salt of the Earth Body Scrub | I am obsessed with this body scrub. It is the perfect consistency, it exfoliates and hydrates. This and the body balm are my two holy grail shower items!

Wander Eye Patches | Grace Atwood introduced me to these eye patches and I have been buying them on repeat. They are infused with hyaluronic acid and they help with wrinkles, dark circles, dullness and depuffing. I keep these in the fridge and use them in the morning on the way to take the kids to school.

Chantecaille Mascara | This mascara is really expensive but honesty it is the best mascara I have tried. I laughed when I found out the price but then so many of ya’ll recommended it, so I decided to try it and have never looked back. I hate crappy mascara and this one is so good. It makes my lashes so lush and full. It also has a built in peptide to help stimulate lash growth. I believe it retails for around $70, but with this set you get two for $99. I will say the mascara also lasts a long time as well, you only need a coat or two and your lashes are full and voluminous.

Herbivore Pink Cloud Face Wash | Last year I was on the search for a new face cleanser and this one was the winner out of all the ones I tried. It foams really well and gets gets your make up off. It doesn’t leave my skin dry and the rose helps with redness which is an issue of mine.

Dior Lip Glow Oil | Yes this stuff is worth the hype and sadly basically sold out everywhere. I managed to order 3 colors from the Dior website- Cherry, Mahogany, and Pink. I love all three colors. They look more pigmented in the bottle than when you apply them. They are not sticky and they make your lips look so luscious and gorgeous. The perfect hint of color and shine!

P50 Lotion | Kate who does my facials recommended this product to me after my last facial and it is truly amazing. It is a toner I use after I wash my face every night. Be warned it smells like a hospital but I swear my skin has been glowing since I started using it. Molly Sims also swears by this.

Summer Fridays Lip Butter | This is the best lip product for dry or chapped lips. I leave this on my night table and use it before bed.

Vintner’s Daughter Botanical Serum | I included this is my top buys of 2021 and here again for my top beauty buys. This is a face oil with a blend of 22 nutrient dense botanicals. It not only smells amazing but leaves my skin feeling so hydrated and soft. My skin drinks this oil up and the result is skin that is so smooth and soft.

Clarins Intense V Facial Mask | This is another product that lived up to its hype. Kathleen Jennings got me hooked on this mask, she is the mask queen and I always trust all her recs! This face mask is so good. It is a triple action mask that helps help tighten and firm skin and also helps brighten skin. You can see a difference after you use this mask!
