You know I love a good beauty haul. I’ve been lucky to get to try some of the leading products in the industry and along the way, I’ve been taking notes. As I’ve tested and learned what I like and what works well for my skin, I’ve been slowly adding to my beauty cabinet for a dreamy roundup of products.
When it comes to beauty, or more specifically skincare, my goal is to take consistent action to prevent, hydrate, replenish and take the best care of myself possible, to promote healthy, vibrant beauty from the inside out.
From rejuvenating beauty tools to the latest in nourishing skincare, I’ve tested all 10 products listed below and am giving my stamp of approval.
I set a budget of $100 but even that seems like a lot for something that disappears into your face. My philosophy is that your face is your focal point and first impression. It surprises me how we get hesitant to spend money on important things like skincare but won’t bat an eye at spending hundreds on fad fluffy slippers that we won’t wear in a year. Just saying. If you’ve been hesitant on whether or not you’re getting your $ worth, the products listed below all fit the bill.
10 beauty picks I’m currently loving under $100:
Nurse Jamie UpLift Facial Massaging Beauty Roller – $96.72
You guys always ask me about this one bc I’m constantly sharing on stories – the Nurse Jamie UpLift Facial Massaging Beauty Roller is part of my daily skincare routine. I take 5 mins in the morning and 5 mins at night to roll out my face to help improve the appearance of skin tone for a more renewed, youthful-look.
Amazon Reusable Gel Eye Patches – $8
These are inexpensive and reusable which is always a bonus. I love to pop these in the freezer before applying over my eyes for an added cooling effect. Helps to de-puff & refresh under eye area.
Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Hydra-gel Eye Patches – $65 for 30 pairs
I LOVE these super hydrating, cooling eye patches from Peter Thomas Roth. At first I thought they were pricey but once I realized these come with 60 eye patches (30 uses) it’s actually kind of a bargain. These are a great way to get that ‘at home spa’ feeling any day of the week. Simply apply to the under eye area for 5-10 mins for a boost of hyaluronic-acid-infused hydra-gel patches to awaken fatigued skin with a burst of hydration & help minimize fine lines.
Kopari Coconut Rose Toner Facial Mist – $33
Aside from being a refreshing facial mist, this Coconut Rose Toner helps keep redness at bay, prevents blemishes, and soothes irritation without drying your skin. It can also be used as a face primer, setting spray, or for a quick refresh throughout the day.
Charlotte Tilbury Beach Lip & Cheek Stick in Ibiza & Moon Beach – $63.08
Look like you just spent the day at the beach, in 30 seconds. I like to use them as highlighters on my cheek bones, nose and lips for a quick summer glow.
Herbivore Coco Rose Coconut Oil Body Polish – $45
Coco Rose Coconut Oil Body Polish is a highly moisturizing and gentle exfoliating blend of virgin coconut oil and delicately floral Moroccan rose. This super luxurious formula leaves skin softer, smoother, and more nourished. I use it once a week when I need to relax.
GlamGlow GLOWLACE Radiance Boosting Hydration Sheet Mask – $13
You know I love a good sheet mask! This one is a hydrating sheet mask that uses hyaluronic acid, green tea, and caffeine to energize skin and support natural radiance. Helps balance dryness, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, improve dullness and uneven texture.
Magic Eye Rescue Cream by Charlotte Tilbury – $84
An eye cream that nourishes, hydrates and perfects for a dewy, youthful, fresh-faced complexion. Works beautifully underneath makeup, too.
Aera Facial steamer by Vanity Planet – $60
You may have seen me steaming on stories (LOL) but this shit works. This facial steamer was designed to help clear pores, detoxify, cleanse and stimulate circulation.
How it works: therapeutic steam made of nano-sized water molecules instantly go to work hydrating and softening the skin’s surface, detoxifying your pores of impurities and dead skin cells. And, to enhance the pore-cleansing session, it uses an ion generator that enriches the water molecules, helping the steam penetrate and clean even deeper. So, say goodbye to breakouts.
Because the steam refreshes your skin and clears your pores, it also helps make your skin more receptive to your other skincare products, treatments and serums.
Feeling worn from a long day? Add your favorite essential oil and treat yourself with a trip to your very own personal sauna.
Pure Silk Pillowcase – splurge $112
Okay, this one’s a total splurge but I’ve been hearing about it NON STOP so I had to order one myself to see what all the fuss was about. Here to report, you might want to pull out your wallet… here’s the deal;
Silk fibers are significantly less absorbent than many other fibers, so they help keep your skin’s moisture and expensive face and hair products where they belong—on your face and hair, not your pillow. Ordinary pillowcases can cause your hair to pull and tangle throughout the night, leading to bed head in the morning and potentially damaging hair [HELLO]. Slipsilk can help reduce friction, too, which also aids in reducing stretching and tugging on delicate facial skin.
