Current Beauty Favourites
One of my favourite things in the world is great skincare and makeup…And when you find a keeper, you hang on to them! Here is a list of my current beauty favourites – There’s a few of them so I’m not going to bore you too much with an introduction…let’s just get into it!
Fresh Rose Mask
This mask is everything to me! Not only is it gentle enough to use every day but it’s also great for sensitive skin (aka moi)! This hydrating and toning gel mask is infused with real rose petals (two-and-a-half roses per jar to be exact) to restore radiance and suppleness to all skin types.
Its refreshing formula targets dry areas with prophyridium cruentum, a ‘smart’ algae that delivers optimum moisture where the skin needs it most. Cucumber extract and aloe vera gel also helps soothe the skin and has an immediate cooling and calming effect, while antioxidant-rich green tea helps to brighten and protect the skin.
After a long hard day at work, I put on the mask after a hot shower and give it 15 minutes to soak it. When I’m ready, I wipe it off with a cotton pad and immediately notice that my dull, tired skin now looks hydrated and supple. If you’re in the market for an everyday mask that isn’t harsh on the skin, this can be your new go-to!
Cost: AUD$88.00 for 100ml | I need this!
Caudalie Beauty Elixir
Not only does this beauty elixir smell amazing but it’s super practical too! It sets makeup and also provides an instant boost of radiance (and I mean instant!). It also tightens the appearance of pores, which I’m sure we can all appreciate.
It makes for an ideal priming base and setting spray between layers of makeup for a long-lasting and smooth finish. Also, fun fact for all you ladies with a man in your life, this beauty elixir also makes for a great aftershave for men. The formula contains essential oils and plant extracts to clarify and brighten the complexion.
Cost: AUD$76.00 for 100 ml | I need this!
Belif – The True Cream Moisturising Bomb
What I love most about this moisturiser is the intense hydration that it provides. After application, it always makes my skin feel smooth, supple and deeply nourished. In fact, it has been clinically tested to provide up to 26 hours of intense, long-lasting hydration. The formula contains a blend of apothecary herbs, including comfrey leaf which is a powerful hydrating agent.
Another wonderful thing about this moisturiser is that it doesn’t feel thick and heavy on my skin. Its lightweight formula yet effective hydration makes this one of my favorite moisturisers of all time.
Cost: USD$38.00 for 50ml | I need this!
DR.JART+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Colour Correcting Treatment SPF30
I typically apply this treatment after misting and moisturising. This green-to-beige correcting treatment corrects redness and helps protect the skin from environmental aggressors. It’s a great solution for redness, uneven skin tone, acne, and blemishes. For me personally, I use it to color correct some red spots on my face as well as blemishes and it works wonders!
This treatment contains a colour-changing capsule within the formula to cover blemishes and restore the look of the skin’s strength, health, and vitality. It also provides SPF 30 protection from UV light and it forms a dust barrier to protect the skin from the environment while enhancing the skin’s viability.
Fun Fact – Did you know that Tiger Grass is a medicinal use that has been recognised for centuries? For generations, this active ingredient was known as a recovery system to help support wounded skin exhibiting inflammation redness and blemishes. Who knew that this ingredient would be used by many in today’s day and age – If it’s tried and true, why lose it?
Cost: USD$52 for 50 ml | I need this!
KIEHL’S Nightly Refining Micro-Peel Concentrate
Ahh…where do I begin with this amazing product? This nightly leave-on facial peel aids in natural cell turnover and helps to refine the feel of rough texture on the skin. When I wake up in the morning, I notice that my skin looks more radiant and refreshed thanks to this peel. It’s super gentle on the skin which means you’d never have to worry about over-stressing your skin on a nightly basis.
If you’re looking for a gentle, yet effective peel, look no further than the KIEHL’S Nightly Refining Micro-Peel Concentrate – I love this thing!
Cost: AUD$82 for 30 ml | I need this!
KIEHL’S Ultra Facial Cleanser
While we’re on the topic of KIEHL’s, they also have a super gentle yet effective cleanser – It cleans deep into the pores without over-stripping the skin of its natural oils. It’s formulated for all skin types and thoroughly cleanses the skin and removes makeup without over-drying. It dissolves excess oil, dirt, and debris and is also PH-balanced to maintain the skin’s natural balance.
I personally use it in the morning before hopping in the shower and again in the evening after a long hard day at work.
Cost: AUD$30 for 150 ml | I need this!
NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer
I was never one to use concealer, that is until the NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer came into market. After watching numerous beauty vloggers on YouTube rave about this product, I had to buy it and check it out for myself. Since then, this concealer has changed my everyday makeup routine (for the better).
This is NARS’ highest coverage concealer – Its oil-free formulation blurs, conceals and smooths to deliver a natural-looking soft focus perfection in a weightless feel. A definite must-have in my beauty bag – I personally use the shade ‘Custard’.
Cost: AUD$44 for 5g | I need this!
IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+
I’ve been using the IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream for years now and I’ve never looked back. I get the mini size as I travel often for work and I get the shade Medium. This CC+ cream is a bestselling, award-winning, full-coverage colour-correcting cream with antiaging skin care and SPF 50+ sunscreen (aka the full package).
It’s clinically shown to increase hydration, smooth texture, and enhance brightness. It never creases or cracks and instantly camouflages skin imperfections including dark spots. It’s also infused with an advanced antiaging serum to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and pores to create a more radiant, supple, and flawless-looking complexion.
Cost: USD$15 for 12 ml | I need this!
Ouai Wave Spray
The OUAI Wave Spray has been an easy go-to for me if I wanted to give my hair some volume without putting in too much effort in styling. Again, I get the travel luxe mini size as I like to bring this with me whenever I travel. I typically spray a couple of pumps throughout my dry hair and scrunch with my fingers to give it a real beachy look.
The spray provides a weightless feel and is also infused with rice protein to boost hold and memory without drying the hair.
Cost: AUD$18 for 50 ml | I need this!
Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet Eau De Toilette
My favourite thing about the Miss Dior scent is that it can be used in the morning and in the evenings. The scent isn’t too over-powering and its light and elegant woody notes make it the ideal scent for any season.
Cost: AUD$135 for 50ml | I need this!
I hope you enjoyed my current beauty favourites. I do have other beauty products that I love using on a daily basis but these items will definitely need to compete to make my Top 5 – They’re all just too good! Until next time…xx
