Hello hello! Popping in from Thailand to share a few of my favorite beauty products discoveries from the month. As you know (and see from stories), I get sent a lot of stuff. I try my hardest to test everything that comes in. Some of it gets immediately ditched (people always ask – I donate my unused/gently used products to Dress for Success or give them to my friends), and a few things make the cut. Here are the best things I tried this month… beauty products I’ve used and loved that made their way into my daily rotation!
Dr. Barbara Sturm Enzyme Cleanser //
This is a really amazing powder cleanser that exfoliates. And leaves skin glowing (without irritating it). Just dump a bit of the powder into your hands and mix with water. Then apply the paste to your skin, letting it lather into a creamy foam. This brand is newer to me but I absolutely love everything I’ve tried. Also, she has a wonderful face cream. (As an added bonus, it’s great for travel as it doesn’t count as a liquid!)
Megababe Rosy Pits //
YAY for another natural deodorant that actually works! This is a good one. On really sweaty days I had to apply it more than once but for the most part, I was totally fine. Bonus points for the cute packaging and rosy scent.
Eve Lom Radiance Face Mist //
Okay yes maybe I have too many face mists but I LOVE this one. It’s super hydrating and makes skin GLOW. It really does deliver instant radiance, just as it claims.
Nucifera Balm //
I ordered this because a friend told me to try it and I LOVE it. Smells so good – minty and palo santo-y… and perfect for dry spots (heels, elbows, etc etc). It’s super gentle and I’ll even apply to my face when my skin is super parched. For a real treat (gosh I really sound old) I will slather it onto my feet and put on soft cotton socks during movie night.
Tata Harper Resurfacing Serum //
Okay HOORAY for this product! I’d heard rumors and had been waiting for this one. This based off of my most favorite treasured Tata Harper mask… it’s like a lower, daily dose of the mask! Leaves skin super glowy and soft… two thumbs up!
NARS Orgasm Lip Balm //
I love all of the NARS Orgasm products (every single one is peachy and glow-inducing, with just the littlest bit of shimmer). This is just what you’d expect: a peachy pink lip balm with just a little bit of shimmer. It’s absolutely perfect for everyday wear… it’s become one of my daily go-to’s!
Kypris Glow Philtre //
Oooh this smells so good AND leaves skin massively glowy and luminous. It’s kind of (in my opinion) like a gentler version of the aforementioned famous Tata Harper mask. It’s got that same jelly-like consistency and leaves skin smoother, softer, and more hydrated + luminous. I love it. If the Tata Harper one is too much for your skin, you’ll love this!
Disclosure: I was sent editorial samples for all of these products with the exception of the Nucifera balm and the Kypris Mask. I receive a lot (too many!) of beauty samples – sending product never guarantees coverage; I only write about the products I truly love and believe in.
Thank you for sharing your favourites! Some of the products sound really good, might give them a try! 🙂

thanks charmaine! x
I’m currently trying to find chemical exfoliant to use instead of scrubs, which haven’t been working for me recently, and am excited to try theTats Harper stuff. Thanks! Happy travels, xAllie
oooh this serum sounds perfect then!
How does the NARS compare to the Dior Lip Glow? I’ve been wanting the Dior ever since you wrote about it!
they’re really similar except i’d say this has a little more shimmer and the lip glow seems to change color when hits your lips. i love them both!
Okay I need all of these products! I’ve used a similar product to the enzyme cleanser from Dermalogica and I love how it’s in powder form so you can travel with it. That balm sounds AMAZING and I would totally treat myself to putting it on my feet at night too 😉
The Champagne Edit
i’ve tried the dermalogica one! loved it. So convenient!!
I’ve been wanting to try the Tata Harper mask ever since you mentioned it on the podcast, and now I want to try all of these lovelies! P.S. loving all of your insta stories of your Asia trip. It looks like you’re having an incredible time!
Thank you so much Jenn! Hope you try the Tata serum, it’s divine! xo
