I rounded up my personal favorites from the sale! Everything from my favorite foundations to my favorite haircare products, it’s all here!
A few years ago I started to learn a lot more about skincare and how important it is to take care of the skin you have. I learned all about anti-aging products and how important it is to protect your skin in the sun. I now use SPF 100 every time I am outside. I want to do everything I can to prevent skin cancer and to prevent wrinkles/all signs of aging. I don’t know about you but I am trying to look as young as I can for as long as I can LOL and that all starts with taking good care of your skin.
Now just because you’re taking care of your skin doesn’t mean you can’t have a gorgeous bronzed tan! I am all about self tanner now because there is just something about being tan that makes me feel much more confident and pretty.
With that being said, I have tried a ton of different self tanners over the years and I have narrowed it down to my top 3 favorites!
WHAT I USE
(Click on the photo to shop)
I have been using this for about 3 months now and I absolutely LOVE it! So this is a lotion, not a mousse like the other two I use but I actually really like that because it is going to give you a gorgeous tan but also hydrate your skin. This needs to still be applied with a mitt (never use your bare hand) This tanning lotion also helps firm, tone and tighten your skin. Every time I use this tanning lotion I am blown away by how dark it makes me. I apply this at night, it dries just like a regular lotion so I wait a few minutes and then I get dressed. This does NOT stain my sheets. I wake up in the morning, rinse it off in the shower and then I am a bronzed goddess. This stuff is truly incredible AND it smells like coconuts…which who doesn’t love that!
This is such a great tanning mousse that I have been using for over a year and every time I use it I look like I just got back from the islands. It makes you SO dark! With this tanning mousse I like to apply it in the morning after I shower and then wear loose clothing during the day and wash it off at night before bed that way it does not get on my sheets. The most important thing to do before you use this mousse is to prep your skin which I will talk about more in this post.
If you are not wanting to splurge on a self tanner then this is the one for you! It is under $20 y’all! This mousse is free of perfumes, parabens, and alcohol which is going to give you the most beautiful tan that is good for your skin. It is non-toxic, organic and cruelty free. What I love most is it has no scent and it dries incredibly fast. It gives you such a beautiful, natural tan.
HOW TO PREP YOUR SKIN
It is SUPER important to prep your skin before applying self tanner to help ensure you’re getting the most out of your application and to avoid any dry spots/streaks.
1. Shave- Very important step to make sure that your tan goes on evenly and smoothly.
2. Exfoliate- This is a MUST! It is so important to exfoliate your entire body before applying any self tanner. This is going to get rid of any dry patches and really help smooth out your skin which will help give you a gorgeous, even tan.
These are my two favorite exfoliators to use before I tan. Both work so well and they smell amazing too!
This is under $7 and I love it. I use it multiple times before buying a new one.
- Do NOT apply any self tanner with your bare hands. It will stain them. Always use a mitt!
- Always try to wear dark, baggy clothing after you apply any self tanner. NEVER wear white.
- Wait at least 8 hours before washing off to give your tan enough time to develop.
- Using the mitt, apply your self tanner in circular motions.
- For your hands and feet NEVER go in with full product on your mitt. I do my entire body and then whatever is left on the mitt I lightly go over the tops of my feet and hands.
MY TANNING SCHEDULE
I usually self tan once a week and that day right now is on Friday nights. I like to shower, shave and exfoliate, apply my tan to my entire body, except my face and then get in some baggy clothes and drink wine and just relax, because I’m a homebody and rarely go anywhere on Friday nights LOL so that day works best for me, and then I am tanned and ready for the weekend and that is usually when I shoot a lot of my looks so I like to be super dark for those.
To help the longevity of your tan, make sure to stay away from any body washes or sunscreens that have a lot of alcohol or scents because they will strip off the color. To help maintain my tan, I make sure to use a non scented lotion all over my body everyday after I shower.
I hope this helped babes and if you have any questions at all do not hesitate to reach out!
It’s time for another Sephora sale y’all 🙂

When I first began my makeup journey I only used drugstore mascaras and now even though I have ventured out and have tried multiple high-end mascaras, I can honestly tell you that these 6 mascaras I am about to share with y’all from the drugstore, work just as well as any high-end mascara I’ve ever tried and they are all under $10!
Out of all the drugstore mascaras I have tried, I have narrowed it down to my top 6 favorites for y’all:
( In order from left-right)
What I love about this mascara is just with one coat your lashes will instantly look fuller and fluffy! There is absolutely NO clumping with this mascara and this is the one I have been grabbing for the most lately!
If you have been following me for awhile on Instagram then you probably already know that this mascara is the OG of all mascaras! This has been my top favorite for years and I always recommend this mascara to anyone who asks for a good one because it does it ALL and you will be obsessed! I love the formula and the wand so much! It does not clump and compared to the Original Voluminous mascara, this one makes your lashes jet black which I LOVE.
I loved this mascara the second I applied it because this makes your lashes really full and thick and I love that look because I don’t always want to apply falsies and with 2 coats of this bad boy, you will have full, voluminous, fluffy lashes!
This mascara is infused with coconut, avocado and papaya oils which helps your lashes feel conditioned! If you are into the more natural lashes look, then this mascara is for you! It gives your lashes length, separation and natural volume!
I remember seeing this mascara all over my Instagram feed and heard amazing reviews so of course I had to give it a try. Well, I tried it and HOLY MOLY y’all… this is a keeper! I love how full and voluminous this makes my lashes look. This wand is amazing and coats every single lash perfectly! I’m obsessed!
Last, but not least we have this gem which is a great dupe for the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara! I have used both and they are for the most part the same in my opinion and this one is 1/2 the price! I love this mascara wand because it has 200+ bristles which makes sure every lash is perfectly coated! It also gives your lashes a feathery, soft effect!
I hope y’all found this post helpful and if you pick up any of these mascaras and give them a try I would love to know how you liked them so you can DM me on Instagram or tag me in your photo!
The Holidays are right the corner!!! Can y’all believe it?!
If you follow me on instagram already then you probably know that I am a lipstick fanatic! I have probably every single color out there and I still continue to purchase more every time I go to Ulta or Target LOL
I have narrowed down my top 5 favorite holiday lipsticks, which all happen to be drugstore except one!
These are perfect for everyone and I made sure to include my favorite signature red that I wear all of the time, a gorgeous berry shade along with the perfect nude incase you’re not into bright lipsticks!
Here are swatches of all the shades! Keep reading below where I have linked each individual lipstick in order from top-bottom along with shade descriptions:
CLICK EACH INDIVIDUAL PHOTO TO SHOP
I love Milani lipsticks so much because they go on so creamy and they are very moisturizing! This color is a dark berry tone which is absolutely stunning!
This is a matte red and in my opinion is that perfect red we all want! This looks great on every skin tone and is the perfect color for Christmas and even NYE!
I love love love this lipstick because it is the perfect pinky-nude! Perfect for the holidays if red isn’t your thing and of course stunning as a perfect everyday lip color!
This is the most perfect berry shade I have ever purchased! It is more creamy than matte! It wears for 8 hours and is super moisturizing! I love these Kate Moss lipsticks so much and highly recommend them!
This shade a mix between red and pink and is stunning on everyone! If you’re not into a bold red, then this is the shade for you!
I hope that y’all found this helpful and hopefully you found a lipstick shade that you liked! If you try any of these please tag me on instagram or send me a DM to let me know how you liked it!
Love y’all !!!
Fall is FINALLY here ya’ll! Who else is excited as I am?! Everything about this time of year makes me SO happy. Pumpkin Spice lattes, fall baking, crisp air, colorful leaves, football…and of course we cannot forget about Fall glam!
Dark lips are my thing, and I am so excited to be able to wear all of my favorite lippies! For Fall, I usually don’t change up my makeup routine too much, typically I just do less shimmer shadow, less shimmer bronzer, basically just tone down the shimmer. I like to stick with more of a matte finish for all of my looks!
Here are some Fall makeup looks I’ve done:
I have listed and linked below all of the makeup products that I used to achieve these looks along with some of my Fall faves!
This has been my go-to foundation since my wedding day when I became obsessed with it. It is a matte finish, but not matte where it’s cakey or drying, so if you have oily skin, I still think this would work for you. It lasts all day & is full coverage! I wear the lightest shade in china silk.
I love this primer year round because it doesn’t make you shimmery. I put this on before my foundation with a damp beauty blender and it gives you a natural glow.
I absolutely LOVE this palette! These are the bronzers I will be using all Fall long because I love warm tones for Fall and this palette has a variety of different shades for every skin tone.
This is a palette you need in your life. I love Tarte eyeshadows so much and this is the perfect eyeshadow palette for Fall. I am obsessed with all of these shades and you can create so many different looks with this palette. It has a combination of mattes and shimmer finishes. It is full of warm tones which are beautiful for Fall and they are super pigmented.
This is such a stunning blush for Fall. It is a warm, natural shade that would look gorgeous on anyone!
I love NYX liquid lipsticks so much, so I will list a few of my Fall faves!
Nyx Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks
Thank ya’ll so much for reading! Like always if you ever have any questions don’t hesitate to reach out to me!
So, I am aware that we are a few weeks away from Fall, which I am so excited about because it’s my FAVORITE time of the year and I literally look forward to Fall all year long! But, living here in the South, it’s still going to be relatively hot once Fall does arrive, so with that being said, I decided to go ahead and share my makeup routine for dewy, glowing skin with y’all. You can use this products any time of the year to achieve that gorgeous glow we all love.
During the Summer I like to use more dewy foundations, luminous primers, lots of shimmer and a lot of the time I like a bright lip! So, below I am going to share what products I use to achieve a glowing/dewy makeup look.
I will give multiple options per product and include what shade I am using for reference.
It is so important to use an SPF every single day whether it is Summer or Winter. I really love this one by CeraVe. It does have a sunscreen scent so if you’re not into that then this one may not be for you. Their skincare line is super nice, and I have used their moisturizers for a long time. This moisturizer is great for normal-dry-acne prone skin. It is light-weight and non-greasy which I love. It has hyaluronic acid in it & an SPF of 30. I use this right after I wash & tone my face.
I absolutely love this face primer. It has an SPF of 30 just like the moisturizer, so you can choose to use one or the other or use both like I do for extra sun protection. What I love about this primer for one is the smell…holy goodness this stuff smells incredible y’all. If they had this scent in a candle or perfume I would have it. This primer actually blurs away your pores, lines & wrinkles, giving your skin a smooth canvas for your makeup application. So, after I moisturize I take 2 pumps of this primer and smooth it all over my face.
I love to use this Becca Cosmetics liquid highlighter after I prime for a natural, all over, glow from within. I love having a glowy complexion all summer long, and you can even use this if you have no makeup on for a radiant glow. I apply a few pumps of this to my damp beauty blender & dab it all over my face just as you would applying foundation. Their are lots of different shades other than the pearl, this is just the one I choose to use because I have fair skin. Also- If you use a matte foundation but still want some glow then mix a few pumps of this with your foundation on the back of your hand!
If you’ve followed me for awhile on Instagram then you should know that I love this foundation SO much. It is such an amazing formula for a drugstore foundation. I mix the shades Porcelain and Ivory together to get my perfect match. This foundation blends seamlessly into your skin, and it gives you a medium coverage. It’s non-comedogenic so it will not clog your pores. If you have dry skin and have never tried this, then grab it asap because you’ll be in love. I have normal skin & this stuff is magical to me! It gives you a dewy glow, but nothing too much to where you look greasy. I can’t say enough good things about this foundation, and best part is it’s only $7.99
If you are looking for a lighter alternative to a foundation then the IT Cosmetics CC + Illumination is a must! I am in the shade FAIR and I tend to use this when we go to the beach or if I am just wanting a more natural look for the day. It has an SPF of 50 which is amazing. (I’m crazy about sunscreen + you’ll grow to learn that lol) This is a full coverage CC cream which I love, so it’s not as heavy as a foundation, but still will cover up what you want.
My FAVORITE concealer of all time. I am sure you have heard of this before because almost everyone uses it. It truly is the best I have ever used. I suffer from dark circles #insomina and this is the only concealer I have found that completely covers them with one application. I use the shade Fair Neutral. If you have never tried this I highly recommend it. A little goes a long way, so it will last you awhile. It is full coverage to the max! It will cover any imperfections you have from, a zit, to redness, to dark circles. Holy grail product right here. So, I apply this after my foundation. I apply it under my eyes, down the bridge of my nose, my cupid’s bow, my chin and a tiny amount in the center of my forehead.
This concealer is perfect dupe for the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer. It is only $7 at Ulta, and I have been using this a lot more lately vs the Tarte because it’s way cheaper and does the job! It is full coverage and they have a huge range of colors to choose from so you shouldn’t have trouble finding a perfect match for yourself. I use the shades C1, C2 and C3. I use C2 & C3 first, blend that all in with my beauty blender and then use the lighter shade C1 to highlight under my eyes, bridge of my nose, chin & cupid’s bow.
This is a cheaper alternative to the Laura Mercier powder that I have been loving recently. You get the same silky, finish which I love. This powder brightens your skin and has hyaluronic acid which will give you a smoother appearance and this will not clog your pores! It is lightweight and doesn’t dry out your skin! I get asked this question literally all the time and it is “Should I be setting my makeup with a setting powder after foundation and concealer”? My answer is always 100% YES. I know there are people who don’t set their foundation and if that works for you and you like the result then that’s perfectly fine. However, setting your face after applying foundation and concealer will make a tremendous difference in terms of how the rest of your powders go on. So, if you haven’t tried it, then I suggest giving it a shot, so you can see how much a difference it makes. I take my damp beauty blender that I use to apply my foundation and concealer and dip it into some powder and set my under eyes with that and my t-zone. Then, I set the rest of my face with a big fluffy brush.
Alright, so…for the cheapest of cheap setting powder this is the BEST one I have found. It works so well, you can get it at Walmart or Target. I use the translucent shade. It does have a strong scent which I personally don’t mind, but if that is something you don’t like then make sure to check the package before you buy it to make sure you grab an unscented one if they have it!
I love this brow pencil so much and this is the one I have been using a lot more recently. I think it is a great dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow definer pencil. I use the shade blonde, and I really like this blonde shade because it’s not too ashy, but more light brown, which is what I prefer for my brows. This makes filling in your brows so quick and easy. I also really love the spoolie on the end! Best part is it’s only $7.99.
This is one of the best selling mascaras around, and if you have never tried it then you need to NOW! This is one of my go-to mascaras because I love the wand. It gives your lashes the best volume & length so much so that you will never want to use anything else. This does not clump whatsoever and does not transfer. Highly recommend my loves.
The holy grail of all mascara for me. No matter what I l always go back to this mascara or repurchase once I am out. It is that good ya’ll. I have used the original L’Oréal Voluminous mascara and I love that one also, but once I used this I never went back to the original because this one to me is way better because it gives you super black lashes which I LOVE. Best drugstore mascara out there.
This was the first high end bronzer I have ever purchased & it has been one of my favorites ever sense! For my Summer makeup I like to layer bronzer, so I go in first with a matte bronzer & this is usually the one I use because it’s not too warm. It is very buildable and blends well. I love it!
I love to use a shimmer bronzer after my Hoola bronzer to give a little sun kissed glow to my face. I don’t like bronzers that are too glittery but more of a soft glow. Also, it smells like Summer so it’s perfect for this time of year. It’s super buttery & silky which I love. I use the light bronzer shade since I do have fair skin, but they do have 3 other shades to choose from.
I have recently been LOVING Pixi products! I picked up this highlighter from them a few months ago at Target & holy crap, it is SO good! It is super pigmented, creamy & melts right into your skin. There are 2 different highlighters & the one I use is the Delicate Dew. I usually mix these 2 together & highlight the bridge of my nose, my cupid’s bow & my cheek bones!
I personally love a barbie pink blush for the Summer! This one is one of my absolute favorites. This is the shade beam and I think this shade would look gorgeous on any skin tone. It is oil free, fragrance free & cruelty free! This is a luminous blush, so if you like a more matte finish then this might not be for you. It blends out beautifully!
One of my favorite eyeshadow palettes & I think it is perfect for a Summer makeup look or truly any makeup look because the colors are stunning. There are 12 shades in the palette & I love that you get both matte & shimmer finishes. You get achieve almost any look from this palette so I always recommend this one if you’re looking to invest in a good palette because it’s so versatile. My favorite shades for a summer look are: Flower Child, Funny Girl & Sweetheart.
This one is an oldie, but a goodie and one of my favorite pink lippies ever! This is a creamy finish lipstick infused with shea butter so it keeps your lips super moisturized. They of course have a ton of different colors, but I love a gorgeous pink lip for Summer.
This is the perfect beachy, pinky-nude lip. I am in love with this shade because it can go great with almost any makeup look. This is a moisture rich lippie and is super pigmented & long lasting. Highly recommend this shade if you’re looking for that perfect nude.
Lastly for Summer lip colors is this beyond gorgeous bright, coral shade from Flower Beauty. It is only $8.99 and works so well. If you are looking for a pop of color for your lips then this is the shade to get! I absolutely love it and think its so fun for the Summer time.
I am sure you have heard about this settiing spray before because it is a very popular product! I LOVE this setting spray so much and it can be used in so many different ways. It is so nice for Summer because it gives you such a gorgeous, dewy finish. Even if you use a matte foundation & all matte powders, just spray this all over your face when you’re done with your makeup and TA-DA, dewy, glowy skin! It can be used under or over your makeup and you will still achieve a luminous glow. To me, this is so worth the splurge.
Lastly, the best setting spray out there (to me). I used this setting spray on my wedding day to set my makeup and it did not bulge in our 100 degree heat here in Charleston. This stuff is the real deal! This keeps your makeup in place for up to 16 hours! Definitely a must have for Summer!
I can not say enough good things about Sigma makeup brushes ya’ll. These brushes are honestly the best I have ever used. I noticed such a difference when I started using these veres my other makeup brushes. The quality is incredible. They don’t shed, and they blend out your products like a dream. My makeup has never looked more flawless. I think this brush set is a great investment if you’re just trying out Sigma. If you ever try out there brushes, be sure to use my code BLONDEBELLE to save some money at checkout!
If you made it to the end thank you SO much for reading through all that I use for my Ultimate Glow Makeup Routine. I know this was lengthy, but I love to make sure I list dupes of products and lots of options for ya’ll. I also really love to give you my honest opinion on all of these products so you know what to expect if you want to purchase one.

MY MAKEUP FAVORITES:
I absolutely love this foundation and I have been using it for years now! I am in the shade pearl. This is a full coverage foundation that will give you a radiant finish. It has amazing ingredients to help your skin like coconut water which helps moisturize! It also has hyaluronic acid which gives you a smoother, younger appearance. If you have been on the hunt for a good full coverage foundation now is the time to get your hands on this one at a discounted price!
This is the first high end foundation I ever used. My mom and sister swear by this foundation so I had to try it out and oh my goodness it is magical. This is FULL coverage but it’s not drying or cakey at all. It gives you such a flawless finish! Sephora has 56 different shades to choose from so you are 100% going to find your perfect match. I wear the shade Alabaster.
I love this concealer and I always use this for days when I need some extra lovin’ under my eyes. I have dark circles and finding a good concealer to cover them completely can be tough but this one works wonders. I use the shade light. It is super full coverage and this has never creased on me. A little goes a long way because it is super thick. You will love this and it really helps cover up any under eye concerns completely and helps you look more awake and refreshed.
Before I started using a beauty blender, I used to apply my foundation with a brush, but after one time of using a beauty blender…HOLY.CRAP. what a difference it makes! Your makeup looks airbrushed when you apply it with a damp beauty blender vs a brush. I now use this to apply my foundation, my concealer & to set my under eyes with powder. If you haven’t tried one of these yet, then grab one from the sale. You’ll thank me later.
I always repurchase this primer when I am out! If you want smooth skin & no sign of your pores then this primer will be your lifesaver. It is a silky, lightweight formula & blends right into your skin. You will notice a huge difference right away after applying this primer! This is good for both oily & dry skin.
This is another face primer that I really love and use a lot. It is infused with coconut water and probiotics to help hydrate your skin. It is silicone free, so if you prefer a lotion consistency primer then you will love this one. It makes your skin so smooth & glowy & your makeup will go on beautifully after applying this.
If you want more of a glow but don’t use a dewy foundation then you can use this primer! It is easily one of my absolute favorites. This is a primer so it will blur any imperfections you have, while giving you a radiant glow. I have one that I keep in my kit because this is beautiful on brides!
One of the prettiest highlighters I have ever used! It is a soft white-gold with a pinky undertone and I personally think this is gorgeous on every skin tone. I have fair skin but I don’t think it is too gold for me. It is SO pigmented & buttery and people will see your glow from a mile away. Highly recommend.
I love love love this palette ya’ll. The shades are so stunning and range from neutral-berry tones which I think are perfect for Fall coming up! They blend out beautifully and are very pigmented. You get both matte & shimmer finishes. This is a MUST have!
I bought this palette the day it launched and I have been obsessed ever since! These are such beautiful shades for Fall! There are 12 stunning warm shades in this palette both mattes and shimmers. The payoff on these shades is amazing and they have a creamy texture which makes it so easy to blend! If love warm tones like myself, get this palette because it truly is one of the best I own.
This is the best setting powder I have ever used and the most popular one out there because it is so amazing. It is pricy, so this is the perfect time to get it on sale. It is a silky powder that gives a sheer finish, and I cannot say enough good things about this!
The perfect blush shade out there! It is a peachy-pink with a little bit of shimmer. Perfect for any skin tone & is very pigmented so a little goes a long way! Love this blush!
If you are not into a super pinky blush, this is another one of my favorites! It is more of a peachy tone pink which is so gorgeous on the skin. It is very pigmented so you only need a tiny amount.
No lie, this is one of my favorite makeup purchases of ALL TIME. Everything about this palette from the packaging to the quality is amazing. This palette contains 2 matte highlighters + 4 bronzers both matte & shimmer. I am obsessed with this palette and I use it literally all the time. It is SUPER pigmented so you only need a tiny bit of product so this baby will last you forever.
Another bronzer that I love is this chocolate smelling goodness. I use the medium-deep shade because I swatched the light one and felt like it was way too light for what I would prefer! This is a matte bronzer & gives so much warmth to the face which I love. Oh, and it smells like chocolate which who doesn’t love that?!
Yes, another product from Tarte because they are one of my all time favorite brands! If you need a new mascara, get this one and trust me you will LOVE it! This is a best seller used by tons of makeup artists, and I think it is so worth it! This makes your lashes so voluminous and thick. One of my go-tos!
One coat of this mascara and your mind will be blown! This will give you maximum volume. This mascara makes your lashes so long and so full, so if you are not into falsies or have lash extensions, then this mascara will be your new best friend! I’m obsessed!
I love doing winged liner and I have been using this eyeliner from Tarte and I think it is so easy to apply & I get the perfect wing every time. It is waterproof and it is a super skinny felt tip liner! It is very black and stays on all day! Love this so much!
I love this brow gel so much! I use the shade neutral light brown. I am currently filling in my brows with a pencil and then going over top of them to set them with this brow gel. It is a tinted gel, that makes your brows more full while setting them in place. You can use this by itself and it will give you gorgeous, natural looking brows.
I saw that Taylor Swift wore this lippie so I of course had to try it for myself because I am red lip kind of gal, and I absolutely love this color! It is more of a pinky-red and this pencil is amazing because you fill in your lips and it stays on all day long! One of my favorite lippies that I have repurchased probably 5 times now!
This is a total game changer and I have been obsessed with this setting spray since I first used it. This will lock your makeup into place for up to 16 hours and I promise you your makeup will not move until you take it off before bed. You need this in your life!
This is the best hair treatment around. I just started using this and difference it has made is incredible. My hair is way stronger & looks & feels so much healthier. If you suffer from frizz or have color treated hair then you need to try this miracle worker.
I use this product after I wash my hair and it is so good! It helps boost shine, tames frizz, speeds up your blow drying time, detangles, etc. It smells amazing and you only need a tiny amount. I always get this little bottle because it lasts me forever!
I love this product because it refreshes my hair instantly and gives me so much volume. This is one of the products I use before I put my hair in my top knot bun. It makes your hair so much fuller, and smells amazing.
I also have been using this texturizing spray lately, and I am obsessed. It gives you instant volume, doesn’t weigh your hair down, keeps my curls and my top knot bun in place all day and it smells incredible!
I have used this cleanser for about 5 years now. The most perfect cleanser that I can never have enough good things to say about. What I love is it melts away all of your makeup completely, and I mean all of it. It doesn’t dry out your skin or strip your skin of any natural oils. It is best seller, a holy grail & I have gotten my family & friends hooked!
I LOVE this lip mask so much! It is a staple in my skincare collection. I use this every night before bed and I am telling you, you need this!!! It is a leave on mask that you keep on overnight and it makes your lips so soft and smooth!
I have been trying to find a good all natural deodorant for awhile & I recently got sent this one from Kopari & this is probably the best deodorant I have ever used. It smells so heavenly, and has a blend of sage oil, coconut oil and coconut water. It is 100% plant based, non-toxic, vegan and cruelty free. It truly does block sweat and oder. I really have been loving this and I highly recommend it if you’re interested in an all natural option.
This is my current self tanning mousse I am using! I really like it!!! It is so easy to apply, dries quickly, and doesn’t have that gross tan smell…perfect right?! Highly recommend!
So, this is SO important to have and this sale is perfect time to snag one! I sleep on this pure silk pillowcase every night and here’s why you need to start: They are hypoallergenic, it is anti-aging (won’t cause face wrinkles), keeps your hair smooth and healthy and it is so soft and comfortable.
WHAT’S IN MY SHOPPING CART:
Thank ya’ll so much for reading! I hope you find something that you liked! Feel free to reach out if you have any questions!
I am constantly getting comments and DMs from all of you babes on my instagram account commenting on how amazing my skin looks and asking what I use, and first I want to say that I am so beyond flattered by the compliments and questions from ya’ll because to be honest, I have struggled finding the best skincare routine and products for YEARS! Basically, anything you can think of from high end, to drugstore products, I have tried, and none of them gave me the results that I wanted.
I have been using TULA products for about 2 months now, and holy moly….I am completely hooked, and I have never been so happy with my skin before. I am going to give details below on all of the products I use daily, the order I use them, how I use them, and exactly what they do for your skin.
Before I jump in with the products, let’s talk a little about what Tula products are and what they do for your skin and why I LOVE them so much!
- They use probiotics as the foundation of ALL their products! Probiotics help lock in moisture, keep your skin very hydrated which I absolutely love, because I have normal-dry skin, and also help with dullness + redness, irritation + inflammation.
- These products are great for ALL skin types and they are super gentle because they are made with all clean, non-harmful ingredients and they are cruelty free.
- They formulate their products with superfoods and safe ingredients which are so great for improving your skin such as, Vitamin C, Vitamin A + E, AHAs, + retinol.
- Pretty much everything you are looking for as far as skin improvement + anti-aging, Tula has got you covered.
- It’s a quick and simple skincare routine, which I love and I know you will too, because no one likes a long, complicated routine.It’s a quick and simple routine, which I love and I know you will too because no one likes a long, complicated skincare routine.
THE BEST PART IS: Tula offers a skincare quiz on their website, which I will link here for ya’ll to take. It is a quick quiz where you answer a few questions about your skin type, and your skin concerns + then you get hand-picked products that are perfect for your skin needs. I took the quiz and then purchased my mini size starter kit (it lasts about a month) and it’s way easier to do that rather than choose random items and go through trial + error to see what works best.

My Tula Skincare Routine:
- I start off using the Purifying Face Cleanser which is by far the best face cleanser I have ever used. It is a gel cleanser, super gentle and cleans deep into your pores, removes all of your makeup, and will not strip or over dry your skin. I use this morning and night and my favorite thing about this product is how soft it makes your skin.
- Next, I use the product that has changed my skin, The Pro-Glycolic 10% PH Resurfacing Gel this is my favorite part of my routine mainly because since using this I have not had ONE breakout! After I wash my face, I apply a couple pumps onto a cotton round, and gently dab it all over my face morning and night. It is an alcohol free toner that removes all dirt, and leaves your skin so smooth and refreshed.
- I have been using anti-aging products for years, because, it’s easier to PREVENT wrinkles and lines, than it is to TREAT them, and this product is perfect to prevent all signs of aging. So, with that being said The Volume Defense Deep Wrinkle Serum is a milky serum which targets fine lines + wrinkles by combining probiotics with retinol + vitamin c. I have noticed a lot of improvement with this product in just a short amount of time. I use this morning and night right after my resurfacing gel. To apply, I take a tiny pump (a little goes a long way) and rub it together in my hands, then just press (DO NOT RUB) it onto my face.
- Next is a moisturizer that I use only about twice a week because it is a anti-aging overnight treatment that is only needed once in awhile. That is the Overnight Skin Rescue Treatment I am obsessed with the results of this treatment because my skin looks so dewy when I use this. It helps fine lines + winkles and improves the firmness of your skin. When you wake up in the morning, you will be AMAZED!
- Next is the moisturizer that I use morning and evening (when I am not using the overnight treatment) it is the Aqua Infusion Oil-Free Gel Cream Ya’ll will be so in love with this bad boy because, they say putting this moisturizer on is equivalent to drinking 8 glasses of water!!! All you need are 2 pumps for your entire face and it sinks right in. No mess, no thickness, this stuff is incredible!
- About once a week, I use the Dual-Phase Skin Reviving Treatment Pads It is a 2 sided pad that gives you skin softer than a baby, and it is basically like an at home facial. You put use the white side first which applies a serum all over your face, then flip the pad over to the blue side and that is the exfoliation part which you rub in circular motions for 1-2 minutes. Some of the ingredients in this include, lactic acid which gives you a bright complexion. Witch Hazel, which removes excess oil, and Willow bark extract which is salicylic to exfoliate which helps clears your pores.
- Lastly, a face mask I use twice a week, and you NEED this face mask in your life. The Exfoliating Treatment Mask It is a detoxifying clay mask which gently exfoliates and improves your skin tone. You simply apply the mask, leave it on for 10 minutes, then wet your hands and gently massage the mask into your face for about 2 minutes, then rinse it off.
I hope that this was helpful for ya’ll. I have truly never been impressed, so happy, and so confident in my skin. Tula has changed my life and I will forever be a fan, and be whole heartedly devoted. I worked so hard on this post (my first post) and I am and always will be 100% honest with ya’ll about everything that I use.
