y'all already know i have been an oribe girl for YEARS now and this yellow shampoo (that's what i refer to it as bc of the bottle haha) has become my GO TO this past year. it is a strengthening shampoo that prevents breakage and increases hair elasticity to restore weak, fragile, and brittle hair. this has helped SO much with the overall health and growth of my hair!

shop now 

 

the conditioner to pair with the shampoo above! i love that this conditioner does not weigh my hair down or make it greasy but it also prevents breakage, increases hair elasticity, and provides lightweight hydration to restore weak, fragile, and brittle hair! oribe is NOT cheap so buying it during this sale is the way to go!

shop now 

 

i have been using this texturizing spray for about 7 years now. i've tried countless other texturizing sprays but always go back to this one. it doesn't make your hair sticky or stale and adds the perfect textured look to your waves!

shop now 

 

i use this heat styling spray every single time i wash my hair. it's a heat protectant and also helps to speed up your dry time! one of those products that kills like 3 birds with one stone!

shop now 

 

my holy grail dry shampoo for years now. legit could not live without this dry shampoo! it eliminates the oil in your hair without drying it out or leaving white residue and also adds good texture + volume to it. this dry shampoo allows me to go like 4-5 days between hair washes and keeps my hair looking clean and fresh!

shop now 

 

i started using this hair mask about a year ago and it has been a GAME CHANGER for the health of my hair! i've tried a million different hair masks and this one is BY FAR the most effective. it's helped prevent split ends, given my hair healthy moisture, and makes it so soft without making it greasy. it is a leave-in treatment mask that clinically reverses damage in four minutes. The patented peptide technology works to repair damage from bleach, color, chemical services, and heat, restoring strength, softness, smoothness, and bounce to hair! it's expensive but it WORKS. when i first got it i used it every couple of days. and now i use it probably 2x a month!

shop now 

 

the best blonde shampoo i have ever used! i'm a brunette but i have blonde highlights and this purple shampoo keeps my highlights from looking brassy and warm. gives them a nice cool tone without messing up the overall brown color of my hair!

i bought this farmacy night mask about 6 months ago and now use it probably once a week because it has helped with the overall texture of my skin so much. this leave-on night mask visibly improve skin texture, refine pores, and support the skin‘s moisture barrier. on nights when i use this mask, i just apply it when i'd usually apply my moisturizer and then you sleep in it overnight!

shop now 

 

i have tried a LOT of retinol products and this one is one of my favorites for a really good price. i love that it doesn't irritate my skin at all, but it's still SUPER effective at targeting fine lines and wrinkles, improving the skin's texture while nourishing the skin all at the same time!

shop now 

 

i started testing out this vitamin c serum in august and have been using it ever since! most quality vitamin c products are well over $100 so i feel like the price on this one is pretty reasonable and it is SO effective when it comes to firming + brightening your skin. this serum helps with dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles and i use it every single morning! if you're looking for a quality vitamin c serum to add to your routine, i highly recommend this one.

shop now 

 

i feel like this serum was MADE for me - i have been using it morning and night and have noticed a significant improvement in my dark spots and the overall texture of my skin. this serum promotes clearer-looking skin and a visibly smooth texture + targets the appearance of pores, oil, and fine lines. ALL things my skin desperately needs!!

shop now 

 

i've been using this eye cream for about a year now and LOVE how it feels - i specifically use this in the morning when i want some brightness + glow underneath my eyes or when i'm applying under eye concealer because it really amplifies that and lays perfect underneath makeup! it visibly brightens + firms underneath the eyes and feels so hydrating!

shop now 

 

i use this makeup remover every night before i wash my face! i just put a decent amount on a cotton pad to remove all of my makeup (including eyeliner / mascara etc) and it's very effective at removing ALL makeup without drying your skin out!

shop now 

 

this $30 product is worth ALL the hype and more and is 100% one step in my skincare routine i could not live without. i apply this morning and night using a cotton pad after i cleanse my face to help exfoliate my skin, prevent breakouts, unclog pores, and smooth wrinkles. it exfoliates your skin without drying it out and will significantly improve the overall texture of your skin. you will especially love this product if you are prone to breakouts!

shop now 

 

i have tried countless lip masks and this one is hands down my favorite. it's the last step of my skincare routine every night before i go to bed. it's SO hydrating but not sticky at all and supports natural collagen production for lips that look bigger and better with continued use.

my ride or die foundation for years and years now. this is my go-to foundation anytime i have a special event or photoshoot and iw ant my skin to look like SILK. i would say it's medium coverage but you can kind of layer it if you want a more full coverage look. it doesn't look cakey at all but gives your skin the most flawless finish and glow. if you need a foundation that will change your life lol this is the one.

shop now 

 

i've been obsessed with this patrick ta bronzer duo for years now. i apply the cream first and then set it with the powder on top. it looks very natural and it's not too warm or too cool. it's the perfect bronze color and lasts all day long!

shop now 

 

this is my go-to 'foundation' on days when i'm doing really light / natural makeup (or a 'no makeup' kind of look). it's light to medium coverage but also has SPF in it + other really good-for-you skincare ingredients! it helps to conceal blemishes and evens out your skin tone while still looking so natural! this is especially a must-have for me in the summer when we're going to the pool or going for hikes in the sun!

shop now 

 

if you're needing a good full coverage under eye concealer, i have been LOVING this one. it really brightens dark circles and has the prettiest radiant-matte finish.

shop now 

 

i use this finishing powder to set my under eye concealer (and also brighten underneath my eyes). it helps my concealer last all day without getting creasy and also prevents your makeup from getting shiny! you can use this powder over your whole face as well to set all of your makeup and give your skin a truly flawless finish!

shop now 

 

the best bronzer brush! i use this for both cream and powder bronzers and love that it really hugs the contour of your cheek as well as your jawline!

shop now 

 

i have this lipstick in the shades 'very victoria' and 'pillow talk' and they are hands down my most worn lipsticks of all time. this lipstick doesn't dry your lips out and goes on so smooth and these two shades are SO universally flattering!

shop now 

 

my holy grail brow product! you will love this if you like the look of laminated brows - this wax makes your brows look so full and fluffy and you don't even have to pencil anything in! i love this wax too because it lasts ALL day - i can apply this at 8am and my brows are still looking good my 6pm!

shop now 

 

obsessed with this highlighter wand for giving the high of my cheeks the prettiest dewy glow! it's not glittery at all and really makes your skin glow!
