It’s the start of a new season, which often means you’re on the hunt for some new beauty buys! Any excuse to shop, yes please! For me, I often find myself hunting for an intensive, nourishing body moisturizer, a new facial oil that can give me that summer glow we all miss, an up & coming skincare brand, my next favorite scent (I’m LOVING Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen’s new perfume Elizabeth James Nirvana French Grey – gahhhhh!!!!!! Ah & look, it goes with my whole Francophile theme, WINNING!), and then of course a new lipstick, because it really can give your face life – I’m most interested in a matte peach – delicious!
Since we’re on the internet day in and day out and follow all sorts of beauty brands & trends, it’s no shock that we have stumbled across some great beauty buys that will help us head straight into the fall and winter season without missing a beat. Has anyone else noticed that there lips got dry & flaky out of nowhere? I was brushing my lips last night and thought, MAN that was quick!
I’m determined to beat the rest of the dry air blues with some new beauty buys & brands we’ll all be into!
My first new favorite brand is Girl Undiscovered. I stumbled across them in my Instyle Magazine and they’re all about 100% WILD, which I just love. They’re a loving indie New Zeland-made beauty brand that offers decadent facial oils containing coconut and bergamot, cleansing water with rose quartz and citrine crystals floating inside, & just such other beautiful skincare products.
#CheekyConfidential Have your favorite crystals near by? Bring them to your bathroom and use them to massage your facial oils in each night.
I love the idea of a ‘glowing face oil’. I often find that I look really dull in the fall and winter months. No more of that summer dew or glow! So what we’ve been seeing lately is a variety of ‘glow oils’ that are most focused on giving you a dewey and glowing complexion without looking oily! Below are some of my favorites that I’ve come across!
When it comes to body lotion, I typically use a cheap one in the spring and summer months, but a really thick and nourishing one in the fall and winter! No rhyme or reason, I just think that some brands like Kiehl’s do such an amazing job with ‘butter whipped’ blends. I also LOVE the idea of having an overall body glow in the winter months! Especially for when you’re strutting your stuff at a holiday party or New Year’s bash!

When it comes to your lips, they are often the first to show signs of changing weather! Just like mine! I use lip balm every night before I go to bed, but lately I have forgotten which is kinda weird, not sure why! But I think that’s when my dryness and flakiness started. Make it a routine to apply it before hitting the sack. I make it a ritual! My hubs prefers a VERY light good night smooch once I’ve got it on because the one I use is SUPER thick and divine. Run into a situation where your lip dryness has taken over? Consider a lip mask! They’re amazing at flaking off dead skin, giving you the perfect pout.
Smith’s Rosebud Salve – my go-to for YEARS! Love it!
