14 Beauty Must Buys From Amazon

Mar 27, 2019

ONE | Laneige Lip Mask– this works wonders on chapped lips. I got so sun burned in the Bahamas my lips were so chapped they were peeling and bleeding, after using this one day they healed! Seriously amazing. I would sleep with it on my lips but also apply several times a day.

TWO| Batiste Dry Shampoo– after borrowing this from my friend Erin in the Bahamas I am obsessed. Not to be gross but I didn’t wash my hair once. This is a miracle worker for dirty hair and I have tried lots of dry shampoos. Added bonus a 3 pack is only $12. I was spending $30 on one Moroccan Oil bottle and this is way better.

THREE | LED Travel Mirror I ordered this after my friend Megan (Holy City Chic) posted it and just love it. It is the perfect slim size for traveling. You charge it and then it lights up when you use it. Perfect for applying make-up out of town.

FOUR | Castor Oil– This is great for hair growth. You can apply to your brows and eye lashes and also mix a drop or two in with your shampoo. I bought this mainly for my eyebrows and love that it has a brush and a dropper easy to apply.

FIVE | Lypospheric Vitamin C– Gwyneth swears by this so now I do too. This vitamin C has a 90% absorption rate compared to usually 3%. It is a high potency Vitamin C that you add to a cool drink and your body immediately absorbs it. This has so many rave reviews for a reason. These are great for everyday use but especially great when flying or if you feel like you are coming down with something.

SIX | Elon Nail Conditioner – my mom recommended this and it is great for nails. Especially if you do gel manicures and pick at them like I do this strengthens and repairs your nails so well.

SEVEN | Pure Clay Mask- it is no secret I am a face mask addict . This one is a great deal for the price under $30. It is packed with so many great ingredients like Bentonite Clay, Kaolin Clay, Retinol, Vitamins B, C & E, and natural Alpha Hydroxy Acids.

EIGHT | Tinkle Razors– I have been using these prob 1.5 years and love them. Super cheap and great for dermaplaneing your own skin.

NINE | Retinol Cream– this is such a steal under $20. A luxurious thick cream with retinol which is so good for your skin.

TEN | Peter Thomas Roth Eye Patches– I will forever sing the praises of these. I apply them in the morning while I work, they are great for de puffing eyes and dark circles. Amazon always has the cheapest price. I alternate between these and the Cucumber ones.

ELEVEN | Boars Bristle Brush– this brush is basically identical to the Mason Pearson one. We have the large and small size. The small size is all Frances Moon will let me brush her hair with she calls it the “good brush.” I used to use the wet brush on her but she is so sensitive and prefers this one.

TWELVE | Disposable Razors– these are hands down the best disposable razors. Perfect for traveling or everyday use. I actually use these everyday.

THIRTEEN | Garnier Microcellular Water– I love this stuff. I especially love it post workout for cleansing my face. It really cleanses your skin and removes make-up and makes your skin feel fresh.

FOURTEEN | Dr Dennis Gross Glow Pads– I swear by his original pads and these are the best for slightly tanning your face. It gives it a perfect sun kissed glow- not too much or too orange.
