As I keep moving more into my late twenties (my birthday is Saturday!), I’ve become more and more interested in, engaged with, and excited about beauty and what I’m putting on my skin. I’ve mentioned before that I’ve struggled with acne over the years so that adds to my interest in having healthy, hydrated, youthful, and glowing skin.
There was a time when I found trying new beauty products to be daunting because I was afraid of how my skin might react and because it felt a bit like a chore. I’ve flipped the switch in the last year or two and now I love experimenting and finding new products I love! I don’t usually share a ton of beauty content on R&R but I’d like to more in the future. In the spirit of that, I’m sharing 7 beauty products I’m loving right now with y’all today!
7 Beauty Products I’m Loving Right Now
The hype around this recently released beauty product was unbelievable! A huge congratulations to the two beautiful ladies behind it, Marianna Hewitt and Lauren Gores. Honestly, I wanted to try it to see what all the hype was about. My takeaway: I’m so glad I did! This mask glides on so smoothly and gives my skin that extra boost of hydration it often needs from traveling, being overly tired, or just the general wear and tear of life. It feels like a luscious little luxury when I put it on! The Jet Lag Mask keeps selling out so keep your eye on it here and here for restocks (which have been happening a lot & happened this past weekend). I can’t wait to see what else is to come from Summer Fridays!
Last month, I was stocking up on new RMS beauty brushes (blush brush, foundation brush) at one of my favorite local stores, Out of Hand, when I started chatting with their beauty guru/makeup artist. Before I knew it, I was in the chair trying on some new spring and summer colors in different products. I got really excited about one and scooped it up immediately – the RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek in the ‘Demure’ color.
I’ve had this product in other shades in the past but completely fell in love with this rosy color. If you’ve never tried this product before, then don’t wait another minute before snagging it! Its coconut base is all natural and so creamy. It goes on cheeks and lips beautifully! I apply it to my cheeks with this brush and to my lips with my index finger. For reference, my skin is pretty fair (although I do tan) with pink undertones. I think this rosy color would look incredible on other skin tones though!
I have thin, short, straight eyelashes (aka the worst eyelashes). I keep saying I’m going to research and try a serum to apply to them but I just haven’t found the time, ayyyy. In the meantime, this is my favorite eyelash curler. I love it because it actually works! I’ve had so many eyelash curlers over the years that barely do the job or that break easily when traveling. From my first use of this curler, I loved it! Works like a charm.
4. and 5. Pantene Pro-V Micellar Shampoo & Conditioner:
Y’all might have seen that I recently partnered with Pantene Pro-V on Instagram to share their new shampoo & conditioner release. The partnership has completed so this truly is not sponsored but I wanted to share a bit more… I’m enjoying the shampoo and conditioner so much that it was actually what inspired me to write this whole post. The shampoo is super sudsy, which I love. It gets the job done and feels great! So far, I’m also impressed with the conditioner. I have thick hair so I often struggle with conditioner not being creamy enough or substantial enough to get through my tangles but this one is working! I’ve always heard it’s best for your hair to mix up your shampoo and conditioner every so often so if you happen to be looking for a new line, I’d definitely recommend giving this one a go!
I admit that I was skeptical of trying a jade roller but as I get deeper into my twenties I’ve become more and more interested is trying out new beauty products (and beauty gadgets!). I can’t quite tell if I see any differences yet since starting to use it but what I can say is that I love the way it feels! It is cool and smoothing and feels like a luxury I might only ever have during a facial so I really like my experience with the jade roller. I feel refreshed after using it! Edwin now wants one, haha!
I’ve been spritzing on this perfume for a few months now and I’m just as in love with it now as I was when I first got it. I gave all my bridesmaids a Southern scented Aerin perfume as part of their bridesmaids gifts. One of the scents was the ‘Ikat Jasmine,’ which is a favorite of mine. With jasmine season alive and well in Charleston right now, I’m love this perfume even more… I smell like the city! I’m also intrigued by her newest scent, ‘Hibiscus Palm.’
