So in the fashion that YouTubers do hauls, I decided to bring that to the blogosphere. After a fun mommy-daughter day of shopping, I decided the things I bought are too good not to share!
SEPHORA MUST HAVES
As some of you out there already know, there's nothing like stocking up on your favorite products! Here are a few of mine.
MOROCCANOIL TREATMENT LIGHT (0.85oz/$15)– The minute I run out of this, I notice a different in my hair. It's such a mix-use product. I use it before I blowdry, it leaves my naturalhair frizz-free and I can use it throughout the next few days to tame flyaways or liven up my locks after a long day. I also love to run it through my ends after I use dry shampoo. I know it must seem silly to use an oil after you're trying to get rid of oily hair but trust me, it works. I find that sometimes my hair can look lifeless after dry shampoo and this counteracts that. I go with the "light" version simply because my hair is prone to being weighed down so if you have finer hair, go with this one! The small bottle lasts me about 3 months.
GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD CLEARING TREATMENT ($22) – Glamglow has been ahead of the game in the face mask department for years, but the price tag can seem astronomical. My tip is to buy the travel size pots! While it might not look like a ton of product, it really does last a long time. I mask every two weeks can get at least 7-10 uses with this particular mask and even more longevity with their hydrating mask.
This charcoal-based product draws out all the impurities in your skin and it's amazing. As it dries, the parts of your skin with a lot of build up stay a darker color, which I particularly find helpful so I know where to target my skin products. If you want to make it last longer, you can use this mask as a spot treatment and only put it on your problem areas. If I do this I put it where I get the most breakouts or blackheads on my nose, forehead and chin.
TOO FACE BORN THIS WAY FOUNDATION ($39) – I'm one of those girls who's probably tried 75% of the foundations at Sephora and I still run back to this one. As much as a love Estee Lauder Doublewear, it can look very thick if you're not careful. That never happens with this one! The natural-matte finish is buildable and really does look like skin. The key to beautiful makeup is really skincare, but even on a day where I'm feeling dull and dry, this product saves the day! Get yourself a sample and thank me later.
FREE PEOPLE OBSESSIONS
I have been in love with Free People for ages. So long in fact, that I really know how to shop in their sales. While I will invest on the occasional special piece, there are ways to shop around their higher price tag. One way is to look in the Lord & Taylor section! Not only to they always have coupons and sales off of clearance, their selection still has fairly new items. I got a sweater I was lusting after for $25 !!! Yes, you read that right. It was the steal of the day and I am obsessed with the fit.
If clothes could speak, this white patterned number would scream, "SUMMER!" I love the kimono style and side tie detail. I feel like it fits in with my wardrobe perfectly. With super soft fabric and a subtle boho vibe, I know I'm going to wear this to death. Sadly I couldn't find it to link online but Lord & Taylor also had a coral and blue color combination!
This is the famous $25 sweater. Like I said I've wanted this for ages, and I'm so happy to call it mine! I love that while it still fits slouchy, it also still gives you a shape. As much as I love a good oversize sweater, sometimes I want something a little more flattering, especially for date nights. I can already imagine this in the summer with a pair of white shorts and I'm super excited. There were a few different colors on the sale with an additional 50-percent off!
I'm signing off for now. I hope all of you out there had a wonderful day celebrating Mother's Day.
