Influenster Best in Beauty 2018

Happy Tuesday! If you got hit by winter storm Diego this weekend, I hope you are safe, warm and dry.  We got just over a foot of snow here in Blacksburg, and thankfully, my 10:00 a.m. exam yesterday was moved, so I was comfy in my apartment rather than ice skating my way to class! (Update… I still had to ice skate to my 1 p.m. exam.)

Sunday Riley // Good Genes Lactic Acid Treatment

I’ve heard incredible things about Sunday Riley, but never got around to trying their products until now! The Good Genes Lactic Acid Treat smells so, so yummy; you can’t miss the hints of lemongrass and licorice. I applied this treatment at night after showering and cleansing my skin, left on for 10 minutes, and then removed with a washcloth. Even though I wore it as a quick detox mask, it can also be applied under foundation to be used as a primer or left on for the entire night as a serum.

Jergens // Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer

If you watched my Instagram stories a few weeks ago, you’ll know I love Jergens tanning products. In my opinion, their products are the most affordable and effective product on the market.  This travel size bottle is ideal for jet-setters who try to keep up with a healthy glow!

dpHUE // Apple Cider Vinegar Scalp Scrub

When I saw this scalp scrub from dpHUE, I was so excited to give it a try. I religiously listen to TSC Him & Her podcast, and they recently interviewed the Creative Director of dpHue, Justin Anderson.

I’m not going to lie, this scalp scrub didn’t blow me away at first. It doesn’t lather while you’re scrubbing your head which makes it seem like it isn’t doing anything. With that being said, during the winter months, I get a painfully itchy spot on the back of my scalp from built-up grease and hair products from wearing hats. One time using this product, and the itchiness is gone!

Kat Von D // Everlasting Liquid Lipstick

I had the opportunity to collaborate with Kat Von D earlier this year on the Kat Von D 24-Hour Super Brow Pomade. Her products are incredibly pigmented and really do last all day. I’m planning on wearing this lipstick for the first time to a holiday party later this month.

Laura Mercier // Translucent Setting Powder

I LOVE this Laura Mercier setting powder. I put a thin layer on my t-zone every morning to reduce shininess and to help set my makeup. I’ve been using it for over four years and it has never let me down!

BECCA Cosmetics // Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter

O-M-G! I am not normally a big highlighter girl, but this product is incredible. Just a little bit of highlighter goes a long way in giving your skin a healthy glow. I tested it out for the first time at the end of a long day of studying, and it instantly made my tired skin look revitalized. Stay tuned because I’ll definitely be sharing pictures of this product on Instagram!
