The Beauty Products We Swear By

I am not a total beauty product addict but I’m also not a wash my face with a bar of ivory soap and walk out the door girl either. Call me a moderate beauty junkie. I like products that offer good results and if I am being honest, I’m a little vain. Meaning, I like to look good and I put effort into trying to look my best. Not my best to one-up someone else but my best so I feel good about me. I like it when my skin is smooth and clear, I like it when the concealer I use covers my dark circles and I looooove it when my hair products stop my hair from frizzing out. Extra points if it’s quick, fairly priced and eco-friendly too.

Elana and I have been swapping beauty product reccos with each other, and with our clients for a while now – it’s one of the many fun parts of spending 3 hours in a closet together. And we thought it was time to get you guys in on the action too… so we’re sharing some of our most loved beauty and hair products with you and in return, we hope you’ll comment below and let us all know some of your favorites too.

Our If I Was Stranded On An Island I’d Take…

We used the “If I was stranded on a desert island” method to narrow down which products to recommend – but what surprised me…

Arcona Transformed my Skin

Maybe saying the Arcona skin care products transformed my skin is being a bit over dramatic. But I’m telling you I think it actually did! Back in January, my friend Laura, who works for Arcona, offered to send me a sample starter pack from the Arcona skin care line if I’d share it on Instagram and/or Facebook. I agreed to share an Instagram post of me in one of their face-masks, but in truth, I don’t necessarily like to “endorse” a product or service unless I’ve really tried it and can share my honest feelings and opinions about it.

To be honest, my expectations were low. I have pretty sensitive skin and often break out when I change products. That’s why things like Birchbox were never really my jam. Getting a bunch of samples to try just means I’ll be getting a rash or zits or both, and I ain’t go time for that…I’m not really a beauty junkie at heart, but I am all for looking better and of course sharing things that work.

My friend Laura, a breast cancer survivor, insisted that Arcona saved her skin after chemo, so I was cautiously optimistic. She also told me about how it’s all natural and organic, made in small batches and cold processed to ensure full potency and benefits. Since it was time to replace what I was currently using, I decided to give it a shot.

OMG am I HAPPY
