The fave five – Every couple of weeks I’ll share with you five beauty picks that have recently rocked my socks. The weather is getting colder and that means that you might want to make some changes to your beauty routine in order to keep your skin happy. Here’s a roundup of some products that can do just that.
- Ren Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask
When the weather gets colder, your skin often gets drier and maybe even a little patchy. That’s where the Ren Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask comes is. This mask helps brighten your complexion, renews your skin and improves its texture. It also helps to tighten your pores, reduces hyperpigmentation and the appearance of fine lines. Obviously, you won’t see magical results after using the mask once. After using it multiple times you’ll notice that your skin is a lot more radiant and that the texture really improved. You only leave the mask on for 10 minutes and remove it with the cloth that comes with the mask.
- Bioré Pore Pack
Now a less glamorous product, but we’re curious: Who doesn’t suffer from blackheads? Insert the Bioré Pore Pack or Pore Strip. These are the most effective pore strips we’ve tried so far. In just 10-15 short minutes, these strips actually pull out excess oils, dirt build-up and blackheads and leave your nose visibly clearer. Just wet your nose, apply the strip to your nose and leave it on until it hardens. Then comes the fun part, gently peel off the strip and take a look the gunk that came out of your pores. We know that’s why you applied the strip in the first place …
- Blistex Intensive Moisturiser
Not only does your skin get drier, but the colder weather also takes a toll on your lips. Our current fave: the Blistex Intensive Moisturiser. This lip balm has a lovely minty scent and leaves your lips feeling very fresh and moisturized. Apply as many times as needed.
- Lip combo: Mac Whirl Lip Pencil and Kylie Cosmetics Candy K Liquid Lipstick
Yes, we’re kinda cheating here but let’s just pretend we didn’t. Another new fave, Candy K Matte Liquid Lipstick from Kylie Cosmetics. This warm pinky nude will suit just about anyone and stays on all day long. Because we only have the mini, it didn’t come with the Candy K Lip Liner. We paired the liquid lip with the Mac Lip Pencil in Whirl. A perfect match if you ask us. Fun fact, Whirl Lip Pencil was a Kylie Jenner fave long before she started her own cosmetics range.
- Benefit Ready, Set, Brow!
We know we said that soap brows are the next big thing, but just in case you can’t get on board with putting soap in your brows … Here’s another good’un. The Benefit Ready, Set, Brow! is a clear brow gel that holds your brows in place almost just as good as the Pears soap does. It’s definitely easier to keep in your makeup bag and take on the go with you but comes with a heavier price tag than a bar of soap. The choice is yours.
