The first month of 2018 is coming to an end–can you believe it!?  It has flown by, but I’m so excited for what this year holds!  These were the products I was loving all month long!

2017_11_29_1545Spa Life Under Eye Strips

Price: Around $4

I found these under eye strips at TJ Maxx in their beauty/skincare section and I absolutely love them!  The thing about TJ Maxx is that you never know what they will have in stock or what you might find.  It’s not that I think these are the best strips out there and you have to have these exact ones, but what I love about them is that you do not have to adhere them to your skin.  Some strips have a sticky backing that has to be stuck down on your delicate under eye skin.  These ones are so saturated with product that they just stay on!  The best way to use these is to put them in the fridge!  Cold under eye strips feel amazing after a long day!


Origins Peace of Mind On the Spot Relief

Price: $14

I recently found this product at my local Origins store when the salesperson suggested it to me.  I had mentioned how I get a lot of headaches and can get very tense with anxiety, and he said that he keeps this little bottle with him everywhere he goes.  He said all you do is take a tiny dab and place it on your temples, the back of your neck, and your wrists and you will quickly start to feel better.  I was intrigued!  It has a peppermint scent to it, which is great for headaches.  I keep this with me and I have noticed a big difference!  I use it the most on my temples, and the cooling sensation immediately gives me a little relief.  The scent and feel just calm you down and make you feel more relaxed, so I do think it helps with tension headaches!  I love having this bottle around!


Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel

Price: $22

I picked up this mini sample size of this product the last time that I went to Sephora with some of my points because I had been wanting to try this.  As soon as I finish up this mini, I will be buying the full size!  This clear brow gel is like hairspray for your brows, with added benefits.  It makes every single hair stay in place exactly where you want them to.  The gel consistency even adds a little bit of volume and fullness to your hairs!  The best part is that it stays the entire day without a problem.  I have had this in my brows for 12 hour work shifts and it hasn’t budged!  If you are looking for something to tame your brow hairs, look no further.

2017_11_29_1551 Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask

Price: $26

I have actually had this lip mask for a while, but with the colder months I have just now started using it consistently.  This is an amazing lip mask for dry or cracked lips!  I use it every night before bed, but I also use it during the day because while it is thick, it actually gives a nice shine to the lips and looks almost like a gloss with the benefit of extreme moisture.  I can tell a difference when I don’t use this at night!  I would say that in comparison to my Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask (which I reviewed in a previous post) I use the Bite Beauty one daily and almost every evening, and I use the Laneige one when I need an extra boost of hydration at night if my lips are especially chapped.

2017_11_29_1549Jergens Wet-Skin Moisturizer

Price: $8.69

Since I took these photos, I have already bought the full size of this one!  I received this in a goody bag of samples from Ulta, and I pretty much instantly fell in love with it.  I was so interested in the idea that I could shower and put on my lotion and then be done!  Sounded like a good time saver to me!  What I really love about this is that it makes your skin super soft, but also adds the tiniest glow to your skin.  In the winter months, I get so pale!  It’s nice to still have a little bit of color so I don’t feel too much like a ghost!  This adds just the right amount of color to your skin while making your skin so touchably soft, I just love using it.  I also love that it is quick and easy!

There you have it, these are the products I was loving this month!  These mostly fell into the skincare category, when it’s cold I always change up my routine a little bit to make sure I don’t get too dry!  Let me know what products you enjoyed this month, and here’s to an amazing February!
