Mario Badescu Cucumber Cleansing Lotion $15

This toner gently removes oil and disinfects skin, while the cucumber extract soothes and moisturizes. I use this after washing my face and to remove makeup and have noticed a huge difference in the tone and clarity of my skin.

Nars Taj Mahal Blush $29

My beauty routine has been forever changed since my introduction to orange blush. In theory it sounds scary, but the color gives skin such a natural-looking warmth that I refuse to go back to a rosy hue. Taj Mahal is a clut classic for beauty lovers because of its unique burnt orange color and perfect amount of shimmer.


Almond Shower Oil

L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil $24

Soaps and shower gels can be so drying, especially during the colder months when your skin can use all the moisture that it can get. this shower oil creates a deliciously scented foam that gives skin a healthy sheen and cleanses without leaving an oily residue.
