Five Beauty Products I Can’t Live Without
What's In My Beauty Bag

Do you have FIVE beauty products you can’t live without? Today I had the chance to join my friend Korrie for an IG Live. She hosts a series called “What’s in Your Beauty Bag” over on Instagram where she talks to authors, content creators, and friends about what they use on the daily. I shared three items on her show and I want to share my full five here.

IG Live with Korrie’s Korner: What’s in My Beauty Bag

Start With Your Insides

I will say, before I share the five beauty products I can’t live without that are items that I purchase to go on the outside, I need to share what goes on the inside. First, I always start my day with a devotion. Spending time in the word reminds me of my purpose and helps stabilize me for what lies ahead. Two, I workout every day. Dedicating this time for myself helps me be a better mom, wife, and friend. Three, I drink a LOT of water! Water hydrates your skin better than any moisturizer ever could.

Five Beauty Products in My Beauty Bag

So without further ado, here are the FIVE beauty products I can’t Live Without! Please note, I’m not getting paid for this content and these opinions are my own but I am using Amazon links. Many of these products can be purchased at your local grocery store or Target, but Amazon was the easiest to share.

  1. Mario Badescu’s Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs, and Rosewater – I use this before I put anything else on my face! I spritz it directly on and use either my fingers or a cotton swab to spread it out. It immediately brightens and wakes up my face! This is especially great for days when I don’t have time to shower.
  2. Cerave Facial Moisturizing Lotion with SPF 30 – I live in Colorado where it is sunny over 300 days a year. Even if it snows, the sun is out and it is STRONG. I also live at altitude which means drier weather and cracked skin. This combo of moisturizer and lotion is a must!
  3. Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick – this is my go to blush/highlighter. After applying lotion, I brush this on my cheeks, nose, and forehead. It brightens me up and gives me just enough shine to have a healthy glow without looking too glittery or dated. I use the Rose color but in the summer I switch to bronze for that golden summer glow.
  4. Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm – I am a chapstick gal! Living at altitude and skiing a lot, I always need lip protection. I’ve tried a variety of products over the years and have found that this combinatin of vitamin E and peppermint does the trick for me!
  5. Lumify Bausch + Lomb Eye Drops – Another downfall of living at altitude is always having dry eyes. This can lead to redness and itching. I found these drops and they are like magic!! Redness immediately goes away and your eyes feel milky and moist all day.
