Even though beauty isn't the topic I write about most often on this blog, beauty products are absolutely my weakness. I'm always trying out something new, I use up every sample I've ever received from Sephora or Birchbox, and every month I have a whole slew of products I swear by. So what's on my rotating list of favorites currently?
I received the Hourglass Veil Primer from Influenster and was apprehensive at first. I had never heard of the brand, I don't use foundation, so what good would a primer for face makeup do? Well, I conveniently also received IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Compact that week and decided to give both products a whirl. I had totally forgotten I put the products on until that evening when I was quickly pulling myself together to go over to a friend's house and looked in the mirror—I never look this refreshed after a long work day, what the heck is going on?! Then, I remembered the primer and foundation. This stuff works.
On the IT cosmetics note, their Confidence in a Cream moisturizer is perfectly thick for those of us that want major hydration without breaking out. Paired with the eye cream, this has become my every day go to. We'll see how I feel about it when the whether warms up, but all winter long I've slathered these two products on and felt like my skin looks refreshed and smooth.
Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate is one of those cult classic products that I've heard about for years, and I just started using it a couple weeks ago. It lives up to all the hype. I wake up in the morning with my skin still feeling supple, and a little of this oily concentrate goes a long way. Plus, it smells so calming that it's fit right into my bedtime routine.
What are your favorite beauty products this spring? I've got a few beauty products in the queue waiting to be tried out from Clarins and a couple more from IT Cosmetics, so look out for another beauty post in the next couple weeks!
