Beauty Updates



1) Dr. Song Teeth Whitening Set- I don't know about you, but I can't get on Instagram without seeing someone with one of these LED light teeth whitening kits.  Curiosity got the best of me so I decided to order one off of Amazon and the price was right at only $29.99.  I honestly don't think it is that different than the gel that I can get from my dentist, but it does seem like the light helped to speed up the whitening process.  

2) Davines Minu Conditioning Mask- I purchased this after seeing a lot of good reviews about it and I am very glad that I did.  This conditioning mask is to be used once a week to repair damaged hair and give it shine.  My hair was very managable and smooth after using it for about 5 minutes.  The directions say to leave it in for 15 minutes so I will leave it in longer next time.  

3) Perfect Image Lactic Acid Peel- this is another Amazon find that I got after Shasta recommended it to me.  It is a professional grade peel that is affordable and gets the job done.  This line on Amazon has other peels as well and I think the TCA peel will be my next purchase.  

4) Byredo Blanche Perfume- sometimes I buy perfumes on a whim after smelling them in a store and then I end up not liking them a month later.  Other times I will blindly buy perfumes online and not like them at first but then they will grow on me.  Byredo's Blanche perfume is the perfect example of that- I purchased it in December and when I first tried it I didn't think I would like it but the more and more I wore it the more I liked it and now it's one of my faves.  

5) Byredo Super Cedar- speaking of ordering blindly online, this is one of those examples.  This scent is exclusive to Barneys and is described as a woody musky scent with floral undertones.  We'll see if I like it but chances are I will since I tend to go for woody musky scents.  

6) Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Youth-Boosting Foundation- it's a pretty big deal when I use an entire bottle or container of something and I've now reordered this foundation twice.  It is my go-to easy breezy foundation that I wear every single day.  I love that it's not thick and is really more like a BB cream, but also has anti-aging ingredients that work during the day.  I would say this is more for someone who wants light coverage.  


7) Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation- I haven't actually tried this one but it is next on my list to order.  It is more medium coverage but glides on smoothly and disguises imperfections.  I've heard great things about it and can't wait to get my hands on a bottle.  

8) Charlotte Tilbury Magic Night Cream- I think I've done a review on CT's Magic Day Cream, which I love and think is so awesome.  I was excited to try the Magic Night Cream so I got my girl at Nordstrom to send me some samples before I bought a full container.  I am glad that I tried before I bought because this one was a little disappointing.  It is SO THICK and sticky and is definitely something you don't want to use if you have acne prone skin that gets congested easily.  

9) Real Raw Beauty HA Serum- I have been using this hyaluronic acid serum at night and it's made my skin so suptle and soft.  I usually use it under a moisturizer but I think you could definitely use it alone if you wanted to and your skin would be fine.

10) Pixi Glow Pads- these pads are packed with glycolic acid and AHA acids and you swipe over a clean face and leave on for two minutes.  After 2 minutes you rinse off with cool water to neutralize.  Do yourself a favor and get these next time you are at Target because they are awesome and make my skin so soft after using them.

I always enjoy your beauty posts and they often lead to some purchases for me! I'd wondered about the teeth whitening after seeing your IG post when you were using it. Thanks for sharing.
