Hello! Tonight’s blog is my second ‘5 things I love‘ post where I pick a few of my favorite things for the month that I feel like every girl should know about. These are all products that I truly love and brands 100% support. One of my favorite perks about blogging is getting the chance to test out and review so many different products on the market, so I feel like it’s my duty to share any hidden gems I come across with you! And believe me – I try out A TON of products, so you can trust that these recommendations are legit! If you missed my last ‘5 things I love’ post you can read it here.
5 things I love and recommend for the month of October:
Tula is pretty much the only skincare line I use. I’ll occasionally pick up Neutrogena products when I’m at the drugstore, but as you can see in [this post] I’m a big TULA fan. Every single night I use this overnight face cream. I’ve been doing it all year and I swear when you wake up in the morning your skin actually feels refreshed and ‘plumper’. It’s nice to have something like this to use at night because it works it’s magic while you’re sleeping – that way you don’t have to wear this heavy cream on your face during the day. Most products evaporate after 3ish hours, but this cream sits on your sin all night so you get the maximum benefits: damage repair, hydration, firmness, pore minimization, and elasticity. I HIGHLY recommend it. You can use code SHOPOLIVIA25 for 25% off + free shipping on the entire site.
If you could smell this bronzer you would buy it in a second. I use it on my neck, cheeks, and forehead to add a little more color. I’ve tested out all the bronzers under the sun and this is by far my favorite and very affordable (it’s by Physicians Formula). It’s infused with Murumuru butter that gives skin a radiant pearly glow, moisturizes, and creates the perfect bronze finish.
With all the hype about coconut oil lately I finally decided to start using it. One of my best friends told me about this product and how she uses coconut oil for everything. This 100% organic, unrefined coconut oil melts on touch. It’s the mother of all multitasks – the ultimate all-over skin moisturizing, under eye rescuing, hair deep-conditioning, belly-balming, baby skin soothing, beauty in a bottle for your whole body.
4. Wine Wipes
You guys. I live and die by red wine – but my teeth turn dark purple every time I drink it. My mom and I have said for years they need to come up with something that gets rid of red wine teeth… well HERE IT IS PEOPLE! And they actually work.
This is the first makeup product I use on my face every single day after I shower – I use it as my foundation. I’m really picky with makeup products and once I get hooked on something I usually use it for years (like Maybelline Falsies mascara!). Developed with leading plastic surgeons, this formula is your complexion perfecter and sun protection in one step. The universal translucent shade has a subtle hint of color that evens the appearance of all skin tones. It’s the perfect base for whatever make up you want to use on top of it .
Hope you find something you love in this monthly round up! xo, liv
