Beauty Favorites | March Edition

Mar 8, 2018

I am always on the hunt for new beauty products.  I absolutely love researching and trying out new products.  These are just a few that have been on repeat around here as of lately.  I am going to try and start sharing my new beauty favorites maybe every month or every other month.

ONE \\ Aerin Lauder Hibiscus Palm Perfume

I own almost every single perfume Aerin Lauder created.  They are my all time favorites.  This one smells feminine and floral but not over powering at all.  Everyone always compliments me when I wear it!  It semlls heavenly.

TWO \\ Elemis Papaya Face Peel

My sister gave me this for Christmas and it is awesome.  It helps to exfoliate and purify your skin.   It has pineapple and papaya which help to sooth your skin and Vitamin E and marine Algae which are great for anti-aging.  It is an exfoliate that you put on your face for about 15 minutes and then you scrub off and your skin is brighter and more refreshed.

THREE \\ Fresh Vitamin Nectar Face Mask

I have mentioned this before but it is a winner.  I just got my mom hooked on it too.  My dermatologist said vitamin C is one of the best things you can use on your skin and this mask is filled with it.  It smells so fresh and leaves your skin vibrant.

FOUR \\ Fresh Vitamin Nectar Moisturizer

I always use this after the face mask.  The combo together is amazeballs.  Your skin will feel so refreshed.  The moisturizer is lighter but it really moisturizes.

FIVE \\ Elemis Peptide Night Recovery Cream Oil 

I have been using this for several months now.  I love that it is an oil and cream combo.  It really helps quench and hydrate my skin.  Plus I love the smell of all Elemis products.

SIX\\ Elemis Superfood Oil

Can you tell I love Elemis??  Liz at Sequins and Stripes introduced me to this line and I truly love it.  Every single product I have tried is amazing.  I use this oil at night before I apply the Peptide recovery oil cream.  I love oils because I feel like they really seep into your skin to provide moisture.

SEVEN \\ Urban Decay Lipstick in color back talk

This is the perfect neutral with a hint of pink.  It is a great color for during the day.  I just finished a whole tube and I am on to my second!

A better look at the color. Its so pretty on!

EIGHT \\ Bobbi Brown Eye Opening Mascara

I always get asked what mascara I use and this is it.  I have honestly tried almost every mascara and I swear by this one.  It elongates my lashes and makes them look fuller.  Also right now if you spend $90 at Bobbi Brown they are offering an awesome gift set.

NINE \\Laura Mercier Eye Stick

I have this in the vanilla and amethyst colors.  I love to blend the two together but they are also really pretty alone.

TEN \\ Coco Rose Body Polish

The best body scrub. I keep this is my shower and it makes my skin so smooth.

ELEVEN \\ Laura Mercier Eye Pallette

Still my favorite eye pallete the colors are so good.  I use the lighter colors during the day but love the dark purple and navy for a night out.

I also wanted to share a few products on my radar that I want to try – if anyone has tried these please leave me some feedback before I order!
Charlotte Tilbury Healthy Glow

I keep hearing rave reviews about this.  It apparently gives your skin a sun kissed glow which I desperately need- I am so pasty in the winter!


Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Eye Patches

I love my 24k gold Peter Thomas Roth eye patches so I definitely want to try these. My under eye area can use all the help it can get.

Fresh Rose Mask

My friend and make up artist Lindsey Reagan Thorne swears by this face mask.

Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel

I listened to an amazing podcast on Skinny Confidential where they interviewed Dr. Dennis Gross.  It was so interesting and these pads were touted as his favorite product from the line.

Kopari Coconut Body Milk

I have heard rav reviews about this all natural line.  I am always on the hunt for a super moisturizing body lotion so this one is a must try!



All of my favorite products can be found at Nordstrom and right now there is an awesome beauty gift with purchase if you spend $125, which let’s be real is easy to do with beauty! It is filled with samples from so many great brands like Charlotte Tilbury, Mario Badescu, and Kiehls.


Thanks to Nordstrom for partnering on this post.
