Beauty Blogger Favorites: Makeup, Skincare and Hair Styling Products

beauty blogger favorite makeup, skincare and hair products

For the Beauty Spotlight Team we’ve been sharing the 5-10 products that we repurchase over and over. I have to admit that I went to my vanity to start pulling items and I just kept pulling… as usual I had a really hard time excluding products. I decided that since it has been so long since I did an Everyday Favorites post, I would just include everything! Today I’m sharing my favorite skincare items, throughout the week I’ll share more favorites like BB Creams, mascaras and even hair care.

Favorite Skincare

I do some product testing, though no where near as much as I used to do. In general, now that I’m older and have rosacea, I swap out products much less frequently and I’m pretty careful about what I’ll use. These are the products that I go back to or keep in my normal rotation always.

SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum
buy it from a doctor here
This serum I’ve purchased I think…. 4 times now? I love that it has anti-oxidants, peptides and growth factors. So, it fights aging from many different angles! I have noticed that I need to skip it some around the time of my period, or else I’ll break out with big cystic blemishes, the kind that really hurt. I’ve talked to a dermatologist friend, she thinks it happens in some women who use a lot of anti-oxidants around that time. So, I’m looking for a new product that is less anti-oxidant heavy.

Kate Somerville Detox Daily Cleanser
get it at Kate Somerville, Nordstrom or Sephora
This is my all time favorite face wash. It is gentle but includes a lot of gently exfoliating face ingredients such as hydroxy acids.

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate
Buy it at Kiehl’s or Nordstrom
This has long been one of my favorite skincare products! I buy so many bottles of this every year, and I refuse to travel without it! A few drops added into my skincare routine at night if my skin feels a little dry, and I will wake up hydrated and glowy. I use it mostly on my face, but when it’s the middle of the winter and I’m super dry, I admit that it goes on to my hands and cuticles too.

Lancome Bi-Facil
Get it at Macy’s or Nordstrom
I’ve been going through this stuff like crazy this summer! I’ve tried a lot of other eye makeup removers, but this is still the best for waterproof eyeliner and mascara.

Revitalash Advanced Lash Serum
Get it at Nordstrom, special duo pack from Anniversary Sale here
I go back and forth between Revitalash and R+F, currently I’m actually using both (the results are pretty amazing! You can tell in this post).

I’ll be sharing more every day favorites all week long!

Affiliate Links, PR Product
The Revitalash was once sent by PR, but I think that was 5 years ago. I’ve repurchased many years worth of product. I’ve gotten a few bottles of the Kiehl’s from PR as well, but I think I’ve bought gallons since then.
