Our Beauty Editor, Erin Sousa, is back with a breakdown of products perfect for starting 2016 off with a bang.
What if you were to narrow down your beauty routine to the products that you really love, and that actually work? Well, you’d have a lot more bathroom counter space, that’s for sure. Let’s make having a simple and effective beauty routine a New Year’s resolution! Here are the five hand-picked beauty products I think you need now.
Bumps and clogged pores seriously vanish with this super-fine face polish. Recommended for use three times a week in the shower, this magic scrub smells like essential oils, and it brightens and refines like only a manual scrub can. The tube lasts for ages—even if your curious man steals it once in awhile!
Kinda like most things NARS does, its mascara is really, really good. Creating smooth and clump-free lashes that look full and soft, NARS mascara is a total game-changer. The rubberized high-performance wand grabs and coats each lash for definition—you’ll have a legit lash-on-fleek moment!
An experience in and of itself, mix a scoop of The Problem Solver with water to activate it into a frothy healing mask. Full of antioxidant ingredients that tingle slightly as they work their magic, this pure and natural product will calm and rejuvenate your complexion so you can pretty much fake that full eight hours of shut-eye.
A top-five list is not complete without your personal signature perfume, and this is mine. Gypsy Water might be the most famous BYREDO scent, but Blanche is also a sophisticated aroma. If you’re into fresh and crisp scents, this perfume might be the perfect one for you. Take your time smelling and testing several options at the perfume counter, and then select the one that best fits your personal style.
Instant shine, seriously. A few little pumps of this silicone-meets-oil concoction, and my locks are smooth and frizz-free. I love applying it as a finisher post-blowdrying and straightening or curling.
