My Top Beauty Picks

What I’m Buying


Innersense Shampoo and Conditioner are my go to and I really can’t imagine switching over to anything else at this point. For my already sensitive scalp it’s a game changer. For winter I like the Hydrating Cream Hairbath and Conditioner. To brighten and tone my blonde I use the Purple Shampoo once every 1-2 weeks.

This is the leave in conditioner I use which keeps my hair shiny and soft. It’s also an excellent detangler for curly hair and makes brushing my curly haired toddler way easier.

If your hair needs some TLC, this hair mask is the fix. It smooths, repairs and adds hydration and shine without weighing hair down. For scalp, especially when it’s dry and itchy in the winter, I love this detox hair mask.


I’m going to jump right into everything for dry skin because I’m already getting tons of questions about products for dry skin. Coming from someone with very dry skin in a cold climate here are my must haves: this cleansing oil, this Mountain Glow Serum by Ursa Major, this Vitamin C facial oil (it’s seriously the best oil I’ve ever used), this retinol cream, and this night cream.

A few things about the above, I only use the cleansing oil at night (just water in the morning). The Ursa Major serum is SO good (use in the morning). I’ve tried others, that one is the best. The Vitamin C facial oil is light but so hydrating and doesn’t make skin feel congested (I only use it at night). The retinol cream is very good and doesn’t make skin sensitive or dried out (only use at night). The night cream is very rich and suitable for dry skin. A little goes a long way.

For affordable skincare, Follain always wins in my book. Super effective and a great price point, their Vitamin C serum and eye cream are my two favorites. 

This gold mask feels like a spa treatment in a jar. I put it on about 5-10 minutes before I get in the shower. It’s very hydrating and leaves skin super soft and glowy.


For dry winter lips, this lip mask from Kinship is excellent. It feels like a lip balm and gently exfoliates and hydrates. If you struggle with super chapped lips give this one a try!

This Westman Atelier Light Up Stick Highlighter is on the pricier side but so pretty and gives that glowy look without being shimmery. Glassy golden peach is my favorite on cheekbones. You can wear with or without blush.

This is kind of a skincare/makeup hybrid but I was looking for a strong SPF sunscreen serum that also had a slight tint. This SPF50 serum is all of those in one. It’s a very subtle tint so this is not really makeup, but it leaves my skin looking and feeling really nice, and I like the stronger SPF, especially for sunny winter days in the snow.

I’m a big fan of a metallic eyeshadow and this one from Gen See is super pigmented but still subtle. I get compliments every time I wear it (shade First Light 02). It has amazing staying power and doesn’t crease or smudge.

I really like Tower28 products, especially their cream blush (Magic Hour and Rush Hour) and mascara.

Credo’s beauty brand EXA has lots of great products at affordable prices. The Lip Glow Oil is one of my favorites. Every color is good!
