New-ish Beauty Faves

Hey y'all! I hope your week has been great! It's "Friday Eve" and I'm SO glad the weekend is  almost here. We finally got some sunshine this week and it's crazy how much a little sunshine can impact my mood. I have felt so motivated this week, which hasn't been the case lately.

Today I'm sharing some new beauty product finds that I've been using for a little while and am loving. Most of the products I'm sharing today are products that I've discovered through subscription boxes and ended up purchasing because I loved them so much. I've mentioned a few times that I get Sephora's monthly subscription box and how much I love it because of all of the new name-brand products I've been able to try for only $10 a month. I have also done  Fab-Fit-Fun box subscriptions and love that they send full-sized items.

1. KARUNA HYDRATING FACE MASK - This sheet mask came in my Fab-Fit-Fun box last spring. I love that it leaves my face feeling so refreshed and glowing. I usually try to do this mask once or twice a month. This brand makes so many different face masks that I plan on trying soon as well.
2. FRESH ROSE FLORAL TONER - Y'all this stuff has been LIFECHANGING for my skin. After getting it in my Sephora box and using it for a few weeks I had to purchase it. I've had some pretty bad breakouts this year due to being so stressed. I have so many acne scars thanks to those breakouts, and this facial toner has made my scars so much lighter and less noticeable. I feel like it has done wonders when it comes to evening out my skin tone all over. I can't recommend it enough.
3. DR. BRANDT MICRODERMABRASION - I got this microdermabrasion treatment in my Fab-Fit-Fun box over a year ago and am still using it because a little goes a LONG way. I use it once a week and feel like it truly helps minimize my pores and even out my skin-tone. I will definitely purchase it again when I run out.
4. BRIOGEO ROSARCO MILK - I received his leave-in conditioning spray in my Fab-Fit-Fun box last year and I love it. I always have it on hand for use when my hair is feeling dry.
5. TARTE SHAPE TAPE - I mentioned this foundation last week on my Friday Favorites, but it is worth mentioning again. I've been using it for about 3 weeks now and don't know that I'll ever use another foundation. It's SO good y'all. I'm so self-conscious about my acne scars and have never found a foundation that covers them like this one does. I used to use foundation, concealed, and more foundation on my scars to try to cover them up, but this stuff does the trick all on it's own. I got the "matte" version because I have pretty oily skin, but I've heard great things about the "hydrating" version as well.
6. PHILOSOPHY FRESH CREAM HAND CREAM - Chase put a few of these Philosophy hand creams in my stocking for Christmas and it has quickly become a fave. I have really dry hands during this time of the year and have been keeping one of these at home and in my purse. It smells amazing and makes my hands so soft.
7. DR. DENNIS GROSS GLOW PADS - These glow pads are my favorite way to self-tan! I use both the body and face glow-pads and they give me the "perfect" tan. It's a gradual tan, so I usually apply it at night after showering and then wake up with a tan. They're a little pricey so I only use the body-pads every other week or so and use THIS tanning lotion in between.


  1. I'm really interested in those Dr. Dennis Gross Glow Pads. I keep seeing them pop up on so many people's blogs. I need to take the plunge and purchase them!

    1. I was reluctant to spend the money on them, but I think they’re SO worth it. I only use them in the Spring/Summer so one pack has lasted me about a year.
