Best Beauty Products 2013


best beauty products of 2013

Best beauty products of 2013. I’ve been using some newly discovered (for me) products for the past few weeks and I just wanted to share my verdicts with you. I think by now it’s pretty obvious that I love, love, love makeup since I find myself gushing endlessly about all the pretty colours. Lately, however, I’ve also been pretty concerned about what I’m putting on my skin. I have fairly normal skin, sometimes it gets oily, sometimes it gets dry but nothing too extreme and I’d like to keep it that way.

So here goes, my list of the best beauty products of 2013

Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask: I bought this fairly recently and can decidedly say that this product will remain a staple in my beauty drawer. It’s has a jelly like texture that foams slightly when I put it on my face. I leave it on for about 20-30 minutes before going out to an event and my whole complexion just brightens right up.

Bliss Triple Oxygen Mask: A quick morning pick me up. Sometimes I don’t sleep very well or it was a long night so I just put this on right before I brush my teeth. The lather is amazing and the foam feels tingly on my skin, wakes me right up. Best of all it only needs to stay on for 5 minutes!

Amore Pacific Moisture Bound: This one I discovered by accident. I had a sample packet handed to me in the department store and was instantly hooked. I use this mask once every 10 days or so and keep it on for the night. When I haven’t been eating quite as well or the weather changes and my skin starts following its own rules, this is a lifesaver. It’s a gel that sinks right in and in the morning wipes off if there’s any left over. When traveling I won’t leave home without it. I’ve actually used it on the plane dabbing it right under my eyes and my complexion stays fresh no matter how long the flight.

Embryolisse Face Cream: My newest discovery. I received a sample when I was visiting Curlique and quickly realized that I might not be able to live without it. This is a whipped up cloud. It’s light and fluffy and good for all skin types. I don’t know how but it seems to just erase any flaws that I may have.  When I went in to buy it today I was terrified that it was going to be unaffordable but at $28, well I think I can handle that. In fact, it’s cheaper than some drugstore brands.

Nuxe for lips/eyes: Random find at the drugstore but I’m a new convert. The lip balm is quite thick and creates a film on my lips so I’ve been wearing it first thing in the morning and then putting it on before I go to bed at night. A few days in and my lips look plumper and are definitely smoother. As for the eyes, this cream is nice and light and seems to tame that pesky morning puffiness…

best beauty products 2013

Clarins Beauty Flash Balm: I use this every single day, just mix a drop with my foundation and it creates a layer of perfection on my skin. Flash Balm can also be used as a mask but I like it for everyday.

As I focus and streamline, these are some of the products that will definitely be following me into the new year. Of course I always make sure to wear sunscreen!
