new beauty faves

Hope you’re enjoying the holiday season. Here are a few quick reviews of beauty products that I received as Christmas gifts, all of which are fantastic. I had to share the beauty goodness with you.

Clinique Cleansing by Clinique Value Set. The sonic cleansing brush is amazing since it leaves my skin smooth and polished. I use it in the mornings and it really primes my skin for my serum and moisturizer. It also got rid of my dry skin flakes on my cheeks (noticeable when I wore foundation and blush despite my liberal application of lotion). It’s so easy to use and clean (just rinse away the facial cleanser with water). It’s waterproof, so you can use it in the shower too. The green tip of the brush gets in the nooks around my nose, which is great since my pores are large there. The value set includes a cute metallic makeup bag which holds the cleanser, toner and lotion inside. These will come in handy for my upcoming vacations. If you just want the sonic cleansing brush or if the value set sells out, click here.

Benefit Gimme Brow brow-volumizing fiber gel. This is a quick and foolproof way to fill in your brows. I got the medium/deep shade and it matches my brows without it looking unnatural (like an Angry Bird character). I skipped using my usual eyebrow pencil and just applied the fiber gel with the tiny brush applicator (brushing each brow outward, towards my temple). As women age, their hair typically thins out. I was no exception so I love this product.

T3 Featherweight 2 Hairdryer + Living Proof bonus. I needed a new hairdryer that you could use with a diffuser attachment. It’s a must for keeping lush digital perm waves and preventing the frizzed out hair. The drying time is very quick, love this. I’ve yet to use the Living Proof shampoo, conditioner and thickening cream but I will pack these travel size tubes for my next trip.

T3 hair dryer diffuser. It goes with the T3 dryer. You really need a diffuser if you have curls or waves, trust. It pumps up the volume and then some.

Any recent beauty faves that you’d like to share?
