Beauty Chat: Three New Beauty Products

Jussssst dropping in to share three products that I’m completely obsessing over right now. I try so so so so many products every month but these three I just LOVED. I hope you love them as much as I do!

Three Beauty Products:

Sit Tight Firming+Smoothing Body Serum.

Okay, am I shallow for featuring a butt cream? Can you love your body but still want to improve it? The answer, my friends, is a resounding yes on all counts. I’m a little bit shallow and that’s fine. For as long as I can remember (high school, even) I have had dimply skin on the back of my thighs and butt which bugs me. Cellulite is a PAIN. And it doesn’t matter how skinny you are or how in shape you are, if you have it, you have it. And this definitely helps to minimize the appearance.

There is a good possibility that I’m just more tan, or that I care a little less but I’ve been using this all month and have noticed a big difference in that area. It’s meant to be actually SAT in, so you apply before work or sitting for awhile. (I also put it on before putting on workout gear/tight leggings.) In a trial, people noticed a difference after 14 days and I agree… it definitely helps with the orange peel skin situation.

Elemis Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Wash.

This is basically the face wash of my DREAMS. It chemically exfoliates with enzymes, but it’s also ultra creamy, super super hydrating and great for sensitive skin. It is my absolute FAVORITE and if you are in the market for a new face wash, you must try this. I linked to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale deal (they have a GIANT bottle at a great price) but after the sale you can buy the regular size here. I have tried so many face washes and have always been meh on face wash (it’s the one beauty product I’ve never felt a special loyalty to) but this one is GOOD. If you want to do a double cleanse, start with Elemis’s cleansing balm (a cult favorite which I also LOVE – read more here) first!

Patchology Lip Service.

This is basically the best lip balm ever. It’s super thick and hydrating and leaves your lips super smooth. It also doubles as lip gloss if you are like me and despite lip gloss being totally uncool, love a glossy lip. (I LOVE a clear glossy lip and feel no shame in telling you that.) The formula is packed with good for you ingredients like aloe and goji and it is just soooo hydrating. It is definitely the best lip balm I’ve ever tried, which says a lot… I’ve tried so many!

    Love a glossy lip too, even though it’s not “cool” at the moment! I’m gonna have to try that balm!
