December seemed to go by in a flash. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and month! I had a few products that really stood out to me this past month that I felt like I just had to tell you about!


Huda Beauty Smokey Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette

This might be the most beautiful palette that I currently own! With both matte and shimmer neutral shades, this is absolutely stunning. The overall quality of the entire palette is amazing and the pigmentation couldn’t be better! I love that I can create a simple matte eye look, or go for a smokier look. This palette has gotten me into creating different and new eye looks, which I love! In addition, the size of the palette is perfect. I know there were quite a few negative comments about the palette being too small – but I think the size of the shades is the perfect amount!

beautyBlender Pro

I decided to pick up a beautyBlender in my Sephora VIB order because it has been quite a while since I’ve used one. I’m an avid fan of the beautyBlender, but I had recently switched over to using the L’Oreal Foundation Blender. However, with one use of the beautyBlender, I remembered why it’s the ‘ultimate’ beauty sponge! It’s the perfect size, shape, and texture! Not to mention, it creates the most beautiful finish to your skin after applying foundation. I’m not picky about which shade of beautyBlender I get, but I’d never had the ‘Pro’ before – and I really do like it!

Kate Somerville Anti Bac Clearing Lotion

As you may know, I’ve been using Proactiv for years and I don’t normally like to stray from it. However, I recently did some research on trying some new products that may work for my skin a little better than Proactiv does that might also be a little more easily accessible! This Anti Bac Clearing Lotion had amazing reviews, plus it has 5% benzoyl peroxide, whereas Proactiv only had 2.5%. Within the first week of using this, I could see a huge difference in my skin texture! It’s been a little over a month now of using it and I am so impressed by this!
