^^That goes for life and beauty!! You gotta floss every night to keep those gums healthy. I’m sharing a few of my latest beauty favorites today from head to toe!
I have been loving the doTerra essential oils ever since a friend gave me gift pack for Christmas. My pack has all of the family starter essentials, and I’ve been introducing them bit by bit. I signed up to be a wellness advocate because you save 25% on all purchases, and I wanted to order a few of the blends to try in addition to the single oils in my kit. I also got the doTerra diffuser separately because my kit didn’t come with one and like it a lot (especially that the plug unplugs so you can easily re-fill it with water.) The Deep Blue has been awesome for my swollen and tired soccer feet, the OnGuard was great to have diffusing while we were sick, and some of the blends – like Whisper and Serenity – are my favorite smells when I need a little aromatherapy in the diffuser.
I have written quite a few skincare posts in the past. See them here and here! I am still using mostly Paula’s Choice products because I find them to be a great balance between transparency (what does it do and why), good clean smell, and how I feel they work on my face. And when I worked with Annalise a few years ago, she recommended them, so I’m sticking with a good thing. Their pricing is also middle of the road – just affordable enough for me to use on a daily basis. Somewhere in between drugstore and high end.
I have tried a bunch of different products from Paula’s line, and the RESIST series is definitely my favorite in terms of how the products feel on my skin. My favorites are the Resist Toner, the Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment with 5% AHA, and the Resist Intensive Repair Cream for nighttime, which is my absolute favorite. I tried the Earth Sourced Natural line, but I didn’t think it was quite as good because it was a little thin or something. I have Thomas hooked on the men’s line, which I bought him as a sampler kit. He likes it! (It’s called PC4 Men and he just calls it “PC” instead of Paula’s Choice – haha!)
Two other lines that I’ve tried at spas and love are Eminence Organic Skincare, which they sell at my gym for use after facials and is conveniently on Amazon, and Elemis, which I’ve tried at Neroli Spa and you can buy there or at Nordstrom. When I get facials with these I absolutely love them. The Eminence line has some pretty awesome coconut smelling products, and the Elemis line has this amazing Papaya Enzyme Peel which is alllll about the tropical smell. It also leaves my skin very flushed and glowy! Both lines are very expensive, so that’s obviously why they are spa-worthy, but if I could afford to use them everyday I would!
And last but not least, I did splurge on this hair care line from Birchbox after falling in love with the serum. They sent me a discount coupon in the mail and I had a few credits from reviews, so I bought the shampoo and hair mask too. The smell is just sooo good!!! (PS. I saw these at Ulta the other day!) Plus, who doesn’t think the word “Seaberry” just sounds good?!
What are your favorite skincare products or things to do with essential oils!?
