I haven´t talked much about my beauty essentials here on the blog, but that´s about to change. I recently decided to share my top 5 beauty picks each month—what products I´m using or planning to try. My beauty need is minimalist, the products I use are mostly for care and treatment.
1. Lovely Perfume by Sarah Jessica Parker for Women
Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker for Women, Eau de Parfum, 3.4-Ounce Spray Bottle
This perfume is by style icon, Sarah Jessica Parker. I´m very choosy when it comes to scent, I steer clear of fragrance that are too feminine, too sweet, too strong, or too floral. For special events, I always wear my one and only Flora by Gucci.
But for normal or casual affairs, I use other more affordable scents. This Lovely Perfume by SJP is a great pick because though it´s affordable, it doesn´t smell budget-friendly. It´s actually a wonderful scent—light and soft.
2. LORAC The Royal PRO Eye Collection
I use very less makeup and when I do put on makeup, I stick to natural look. The most important to me however, is to set my eyes because they have different eyelids. I find this eyewear set from LORAC to come in handy. The mascara and eye liner are great, and the eye shadows are highly pigmented.
3. Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm
Did you know that it´s crucial to exfoliate our lip skin every now and then? But what happens if the lip is exfoliating all the time? That´s actually my problem, I have choppy lips that peel off naturally all the time. I mostly use petroleum jelly to protect it, but lately I´m looking for a lip balm with treatment effect.
I´d like to try this conditional Jack Black lip balm because it´s said to protect the lips from both the sun and wind, and has a lasting effect—something I definitely need.
4. Mario Badescu Seaweed Night Cream
Once you hit thirty, your skin is just never like when you were young. I use moisturizing on my skin during the day, and a night cream before I hit the hay. But the cream I´m using right now has a smell that annoys my hubby, so I´m thinking of changing it. I´m reading quite nice reviews about this See Weed night cream and its ability to give baby soft skin. I´m definitely giving it a try.
5. Jack Black Epic Moisture MP 10 Nourishing Oil
I´m currently using a medicinal liquid for my scalp to hopefully facilitate hair growth and control dandruff. But the medicine leaves my hair dull and dry. A hair moisturizer certainly helps in nourishing my hair and improving its appearance.
