Big Beauty Product Review

I realized the other day how many beauty products I've accumulated, both through some amazing gifts and through my own purchases. I thought I would try a new type of post where I review and share several products at one time. I actually had a lot more I wanted to share, but I didn't want this to get too long. If you guys like this post, I could plan to do one every few months as I try out additional products!

Origins Matte Moisturizer with Willowherb (c/o)
I started using this the morning after I received it because the words "matte moisturizer" got me all kinds of excited. I battle the classic combination skin - dry in some areas and oily in others (why, oh why, is my nose so shiny?!). I always want to moisturize my skin, but often times that process makes me too oily under my makeup. This is a really lightweight and refreshing formula that definitely keeps the shine-factor down. I'm a fan!

Dermalogica Hydrablur Primer (c/o)
I'd been wanting to try Dermalogica products ever since their episode on the How I Built This podcast, and this is the first one I've tried. This is a lovely primer formula that really does "blur" and smooth out the skin (it's pretty amazing how it smoothes out pores). It makes blending in your foundation really easy too. I just wish it had some SPF... 

great product for messy, beachy hair
ArtNaturals Sea Salt Spray (c/o) 
This is such a handy product to use when you're doing the messy, air-dried look or want to add more texture to your hair. This spray has lots of hair-healthy ingredients, and is paraben free and cruelty free. It also smells so yummy! 👌

affordable skincare line of masks, serums and moisturizers
Advanced Clinicals Skincare
Advanced Clinicals is an affordable skincare brand that was so kind to send over products for me to try! Their stuff is really really good! Annnddd, you can use code LENORE30 for 30% off when ordering from their Amazon shop.

Rose Hip Anti-Aging Body Oil
I love this product so much that I'm talking about it in a second blog post. It's always weirded me out to put an oil on my body, but this one has been a game-changer for me. Not only is the smell so light and pleasant, but this is super lightweight yet moisturizing. I don't feel greasy at all - my skin just feels soft and nourished.

Vitamin C Anti-Aging Serum
I've used this nightly for 2+ months now and it gives my skin some serious glow! I also love that it's lightweight and not greasy.

Hyaluranic Serum - Instant Skin Hydrator
I love to add a few drops of this serum to the vitamin c serum above when my skin needs a little bit of extra moisture!

Vitamin C Brightening Sheet Masks
I LOVE trying new masks, and especially sheet masks! This one is really good, and the price point is great too. I definitely notice brighter, more glowing skin after I use this! The only downside is that it leaves my skin a bit sticky afterwards, but the upsides are worth it in my opinion! 

great sheet mask by Korean skincare brand MediHeal
MediHeal Vita Lightbeam Sheet Mask
I discovered Korean skincare brand MediHeal through one of my all-time favorite bloggers/vloggers Aimee Song. I was so excited to find their masks on Amazon after watching a video of her visit to a Korean beauty store. MediHeal makes tons of different sheet masks, and you absolutely cannot beat the prices! I plan to try more in the future, but in the meantime I absolutely love this one! It makes your skin so smooth and glowy.

Alana Mitchell Anti-Aging Peptide Eye Cream (c/o)
I talked a lot about Alana Mitchell's skincare line in this post, but wanted to specifically call out her peptide eye cream! My esthetician told me that peptides are the only thing that will help the appearance of dark circles, and I should have listened to her sooner. My undereyes are noticeably brighter in the mornings after I use this, and I've found myself using less concealer too. This is a product I definitely foresee myself purchasing once I run out, but a few months in and my little bottle is still going strong because a little goes a long way! (PS - if you sign up for the newsletters on the website there are regularly 15% and 25% off sales site-wide 👍).

CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser (c/o)
This is a really nice cleanser to have on hand or pick up at the drugstore if you're looking for a simple, affordable cleanser! It's great for both sensitive skin and oily skin, and I've been using it in the mornings since it's a lightweight cleanser. 

Juice Organics natural shampoo and conditioner
Juice Organics Smoothing Shampoo & Conditioner (c/o)
Since I color my hair platinum blonde and regularly use purple shampoo and styling tools on my hair, this smoothing shampoo and conditioner have found their way into my regular rotation. They definitely smooth out frizz and dryness, and make my hair feel so good! I also love that this brand makes products without parabens, artificial fragrances, artificial colors, and more, so their stuff really is healthy for your hair and lifestyle.

Please let me know if this type of post is something you'd like to see more of in the future! xx
