I thought I’d share the haircare, skincare and beauty products that I love:

This is my #1 pick for haircare! I used to suffer from extremely thin and fried hair, but thanks to Olaplex, I now have (at least!) double the hair. You can read my full review on it here, but I cannot recommend this stuff more.

You can shop the whole Olaplex line here! Btw: I’m very interested in trying the new Olaplex mask, but I have a few hair masks in my cabinets so I need to get through those first, haha. (Note: I also SWEAR BY Pantene Rescue Shots, which are ridiculously affordable and make your hair as soft as silk. If you’re going to try Olaplex, give the Rescue Shots a “shot”—haha—too!)

I love this face wash! I have extremely sensitive skin, and this stuff is gentle and smells amazing. Makes me feel like I’m at a spa.

ADD THIS TO YOUR CART. It’s insanity. Again, I have very sensitive skin, but I use this twice a week and no problems. It’s the best exfoliator I’ve ever tried. It’s both a physical and chemical exfoliator, and it works in under two minutes. My skin looks awesome after I use it; it truly glows, and it leaves it looking and feeling wonderfully soft. Worth every penny and probably my favorite skincare product ever.

Many thanks to Carly for this amazing recommendation! It took me a while to get past the smell—which admittedly isn’t bad; it’s just earthy—but this clears up breakouts overnight. I couldn’t live without it.

Did you know that Vitamin B5 is one of the most important vitamins to take if you have acne-prone skin? I didn’t, haha. But it helps regulate the skin’s barrier function, including sebum production, thus reducing breakouts like whoa. Anyway, this stuff is full of Vitamin B5 and it’s incredible for dehydrated skin. I swear this under my moisturizer every day.

Just started taking these so I can’t speak to them yet, but a couple of friends have recommended them for clearer skin! (I supplement with Vitamin B5, too.)

This is what I use most days for a day moisturizer because it includes this crazy primer that works SO well. My makeup used to slide off my face around noon, making me look tired and kind of sloppy. Face Base, however, keeps everything in place for the whole day. It’s a miracle product, enriched with lots of vitamins. I wrote about it at length here!

During periods when my skin is extra dry, I use this brightening moisturizer. It’s phenomenal. It’s rich but never breaks my skin out, and it smells so good. When I first ran out, I immediately bought another tub, proving just how much I need it in my life! It’s packed full of Vitamin C, too, which helps with dull skin.

Best foundation! The one thing I’ll say is that it takes an application or two to get the hang of it… but once you do, it’s magical. It doesn’t come off. I spread it around my face and then pat—NOT rub—it into place. Looks so natural yet provides great coverage. Another product I couldn’t live without!

This is my favorite concealer—and I’ve tried a ton of the higher-end ones! I don’t know. It just stays in place and lasts forever. Really good under eyes, too. A little goes a long way so make sure not to use too much. (Less = no creasing!)

This is my go-to lipstick. Love all the available shades! Fun beauty tip I learned this year: Steer clear of very dark lipstick shades if you want to look more youthful!

A crowd favorite for good reason. I can’t get over how thick and full my lashes look when I use this mascara! Without a doubt the best I’ve ever used.
