My Weekly Top 5 – January 21, 2018

Echinacea Scrub

A lot of people ask me which beauty and skincare products I use and recommend. Well, there’s quite a few of them, to be honest! I love trying new things, which means that my list can change relatively quickly. In honor of that, I’ve decided to create a weekly list of my favorite products of the week.

This list includes ONLY the products that I absolutely love. There will be no mere liked products featured in my Weekly Top 5! Now, enough talking and on to these excellent products!

 

Absolutely Natural Purifying Mud Mask, 4 oz., $18

Absolutely Natural Mud Mask
This mask is the bomb! I have never used a mask that left my face so soft and smooth. This mask is created with all-natural ingredients that primarily feature rose kaolin clay, bentonite clay, and aloe. I wasn’t a fan of face mask until I tried this. Most masks left my face with that too-tight feeling and often caused blemishes. I understand that beauty masks often cause your skin to purge, but I mean, who has time to plan around getting blemishes? I’ve had none of these issues with Absolutely Natural Purifying Mud Mask.

After using this product, my skin is toned but left so soft! I keep it in my shower and apply it twice weekly. Merely pat onto wet skin and allow to dry. Rinse off and enjoy silky skin!

 

Girlactik Matte Lip Paint, 0.25 fl. oz., $23 – Demure

Girlactik

Ok, Girlactik Matte Lip Paint, where have you been all my life? I have tried so many liquid lip products! A few of the many products that I tried would stay on, that is until I ate or drank anything! Not only would most products transfer to the food, but I would always have a smear of lipstick on my chin! Ugh! This product has changed my life! I kid you not, I ate fried chicken at my MIL’s, and there was no transfer. WHAT?!

I emerged from Sunday Dinner with a fully intact lip look! This formula is not super drying like most liquid lipsticks, either. You can tell when it dries down, but It doesn’t leave your lips parched. If you need me in the next hour or so, I’ll be browsing all the other colors on the Girlactik website.

By the way, Demure is gorgeous! It’s such a pretty plum rose color. It goes perfect with my winter makeup and would also be beautiful for fall.

 

Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer, 10 fl. oz., $5.59 – Nourishing Monoi Oil

Jergesn Wet Skin
I love the idea of wet skin moisturizer. I have previously tried a lot of different in-shower moisturizers and have only found one that I liked. Most of the moisturizers didn’t smell good and left my shower super slippery. I think I created some new dance moves when I stepped into the shower the next day. This formula eliminates this issue.

Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer applies like silk and smells fantastic. I have the Nourishing Monoi Oil Moisturizer, and I am in love with the fragrance. I spent half of the night sniffing myself! It’s so easy to apply. After you get out of the shower, apply a small amount of the moisturizer to your damp skin. Just pat your skin to dry and voila! My skin was left glowing after the application, and the smell makes takes me away to a beach in the Caribbean!

 

Kentucky Soaps & Such Sugar Scrub, 11 oz., $8.50 – Little Black Dress

Plainview Farms Sugar Scrub
Kentucky Soaps & Such is a homegrown business, founded by Angela Correll in 2003. What started as a small business focusing on goat milk soaps, has expanded to much more! You are not living if you haven’t tried their handmade sugar scrubs. The natural scrub leaves your skin silky smooth and so hydrated!

I recommend the Little Black Dress scrub. It smells wonderful, and I haven’t met anyone who didn’t enjoy the fragrance. I use the scrub year round, and especially enjoy the relief it provides to my skin during the colder months. As it is a natural product, make sure you mix the oil and sugar together before use for best results. Don’t forget to check out their soaps when you visit their store or website. They are gorgeously moisturizing!

 

Macadamia Natural Oil Natural Deep Repair Masque, 8 oz, $18.99

Macadamia

I’ve been using this mask for quite some time, and it has never let me down. If you want to tame the frizz and enjoy luxuriously smooth hair, then this is the mask for you. It keeps my curls looking beautiful and hydrated, without weighing them down.

This mask is ideal for people that have dry, damaged, or color-treated hair. However, I recommend this to everyone, even if they have healthy hair or not. Basically, if you want beautiful hair, use this! My husband uses it in his beard, and it works wonderfully! Just apply to wet hair and let sit for up to seven minutes before rinsing. I usually rinse with cold water to seal the hair cuticle and promote optimum shine.

That concludes my Weekly Top 5. If you haven’t used these products, now would be the time to get them! Other than that, have an awesome weekend my gorgeous friend!
