5 Beauty Buys to Try
Well hello! I'm back on the blog with a new crop of fantastic beauty buys. They're tried and true favorites -- read below to see why. And can we talk about that pouch above? It's fully customizable with tons of color options and the monogram is hand-painted. SWOON!
HERBIVORE Blue Tansy AHA + BHA Resurfacing Clarity Mask
There are two things that initially caught my eye about this mask: the pretty branding (see here) and lovely teal color. It promises to exfoliate, smooth and re-surface the skin, and boy does it ever deliver. I couldn't believe how smooth my skin felt and looked, and thought to myself, "YES! A mask that finally does what it says it will!" I use it once a week now. Shop It Here →
VASELINE INTENSIVE CARE Healthy Hands Stronger Nails Lotion
For me, not all hand lotions are created equal. Trust me, I've tried a ton. I'm very particular about the feel -- the slightest hint of greasiness and I'm tossing it. My hands get extremely dry in the Fall and Winter, and this is the only thing that keeps my knuckles and cuticles from drying out. I find this works better than any cuticle oil I've ever tried, and it feels good on my skin. It can be a bit hard to find, although Target usually has it. I've gotten into the habit of picking up a bottle every time I'm there. Shop It Here →
DP HUE Cool Blonde Shampoo
Purple shampoo is the holy grail of blonde hair.
It brightens, removes brassiness and can even freshen up highlights. I've tried a bunch and this is my favorite, especially since it seems to make my hair feel soft, too. Also, this one isn't just for blondes. It's recommended for brunettes to cancel warmth, too. Shop It Here →
BOBBI BROWN Eye Opening Mascara
I'm hard on mascaras. My lashes are long but fine, blonde and straight. I've been endlessly searching for a mascara that will lift them up and last all day and have finally found it in this one. It really adds big volume and curl. Skip it if you're going for a natural look. This one delivers full on glamour, especially if you're using a lash growing serum like I am (see below.)

GRANDLASH MD Lash Enhancing Serum
I've used NeuLash for years (it's amazing and definitely works.) But y'all, it's expensive. I was excited to read the good reviews on GrandLASH were just as good, because it's less than half the price. I've been using it for a couple weeks now and have already seen results. My eyes can be sensitive, and they seem to tolerate this just fine. Shop It Here →
