I’ve been testing out a ton of beauty products lately. Some I’ve tried a few times and just didn’t vibe with. Others I became obsessed with. By obsessed I mean using until the very last drop and becoming very anxious that I was down to my few last drops! They were THAT GOOD. I wanted to round up 5 of these products that I’ve loved and have already or will be soon repurchasing.


This little gem was in a gift bag from an event I attended a few months back. When I finally got around to trying it, I was blown away and upset that I didn’t try it even sooner! It’s not too often that you get skincare products in a goodie bag that you’re crazy about and this was the REAL DEAL! With every use I not only saw the texture and tone of my skin improve, but I also saw dark spots start to fade. It doesn’t dry my skin and feels beautiful on. I just felt like I had really balanced skin all throughout my day. My skin felt GOOD and looked GOOD. I honstly was so bummed when I had used up my last few pumps, so I’ve repurchased it!

I got this retexture scrub in a PR package and OMG I have been HOOKED. It has 10% glycolic acid and 0.5% salicyclic acid that helps to gently exfoliate the skin. I love how smooth and clean my skin feels after each use. The micro beads help to exfoliate dead skin cells, give you even skin tone and help with any age-spots. For those struggling with acne this is really great too. I feel like I get such a solid scrub with this, I know it’s really getting in and cleaning out anything that needs to be purified. I use it 2 to 3 times a week in the shower. If you’re looking for a good scrub, this is it.

If you’re like me and have an annoying dark upper lip shadow then this is the gel for you. For years I struggled with whitening and brightening my upper lip and couldn’t find anything that worked. This works. Not only just my upper lip, but I have a few really stubborn dark spots on my cheeks and this PCA gel has been a dream.! In just a week (kid you not) I’ve seen my spots get lighter and lighter. It’s crazy! I do have to mention that this product does use 2% hydroquinone which there is some controversy about. I always lean towards more organic/natural products and ingredients, but this product does the job 100% so I will be using in moderation.

I got this bottle up and was bummed when I was down to my last few drops! This makeup setting spray not only has SPF 30 in it, but it also has hyaluronic acid which is great for your skin! I loved how it sets my makeup and gives me a matte finish – holds up my makeup all day long and just gives me a really pulled together look. Love how it makes my skin look! The only downsides are – I don’t love how it smells and the nozzle can spray more delicately. BUT, I am still repurchasing! Love the idea of SPF in my setting spray. Also, this product is 70% organic. Bonus.

You guys, I just really really love this moisturizer. My skin feel SO GOOD when I put this on! It’s delicate on the skin, isn’t greasy, absorbs well and provides such a good base before makeup application. It has SPF 30 in it which I love. I’m a huge SPF advocate and I think they’ve done a really great job with this product. I love how the color of the moisturizer isn’t white but it’s a pale pink and blends really well with foundation. It doesn’t leave residue like some moisturizers with SPF do. It smells beautiful and I really feel like it brightens my skin and makes my makeup looks so much better. It’s just a solid moisturizer that I’m constantly reaching for. Also, it has turmeric and green tea + has zinc oxide (something I always look for in skincare). I know that my skin just loves this.
