Sheet Masks: I grab the Dr Jart Soothing Hydra Solution and Water Replenishment Masks every time I go to Sephora. I use this Erno Laszlo mask once a month. I’ve wanted to try Farmacy so I’m buying this mask.
Supergoop!: If you’ve been wanting to try it, now’s the perfect time (or to stock up if you love it). My favorites are the Unseen Sunscreen Primer, Invincible Setting Powder (in light) and the Setting Mist.
rms beauty: I’ve wanted to try their highlighter and concealer for a while. They’re another natural beauty brand with rave reviews.
Olaplex: My holy grail hair product. This was recommended to me by my hair stylist and there is nothing that makes my hair as soft and shiny as this product. You put it on damp hair BEFORE you shampoo and condition and leave on for 10-15 minutes. I do this once every two to three weeks.
Alterna: I’ve tried so many different shampoos and conditioners for my sensitive scalp and Alterna is still (10+ years later) one of the only brands I can use.
Herbivore: I keep hearing rave reviews about this moisturizer and it’s natural, vegan and cruelty free.

dpHUE: I use this Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse once a week (as a shampoo replacement) and it makes my hair feel so clean and soft.
Urban Decay: Basically the only eyeshadow I wear is from the Naked Palette and the Backtalk Palette. I love both you can’t go wrong with either one. This lipstick in Naked is so pretty and perfect for spring and summer. It’s very subtle.
Fresh: You guys know how much I love Fresh. My holy grail products are the Rose Toner, Rose Face Mask and the Sugar Cream Lip Treatment in Gilt.
