Beauty Spotlight | Beauty Junkie Essentials

Self-care + beauty routines help to make you more confident, release stress and feel more beautiful.  This is no wonder many people love a good pamper session.  I always try to fit in at least one self-care evening a week – usually happens on a Friday or Sunday.  It includes a good face steaming, my favorite mask, and a steep in the tub with Epsom salt + essential oils.  The Epsom salt helps with pain relief, soothes tired muscles, detoxifies the body, and softens the skin.  My go-to essential oil combo is peppermint + frankincense.  Together, it literally melts all of my worries from the day away and I fall asleep so quickly afterward.

Here are a few essential oil kits I recommend:

Here are some of my must-have home essentials for a beauty junkie like myself!!

  1. Travel makeup brush holder – is such a neat invention as it keeps your brushes protected + doubles as a brush holder and stands up on its own.
  2. Eco Tan remover mitt – I never believed anything could remove fake tan off your skin.  This does the trick and also gives your skin a gentle exfoliation.
  3. Heated eyelash curler – For someone born with board straight lashes, this little thing helps a lot!!  It a no-brainer and works like a charm – lashes stay curled all day.
  4. Makeup brush cleaner – the BEST on the market hands down!!  It cleans your brushes with ease and also disinfects them from bacteria or any gross residue.
  5. Organizer caddy – can be displayed nicely under the sink or on top of your vanity.  Either way, it provides so much storage in an organized fashion.  A definite must-have!!
  6. Gua Sha stone – this is great especially in the mornings when your face is most puffy.  This stone helps to smooth out the skin and drain in any extra fluids reducing puffiness + improves blood circulation.  I keep mine in the fridge which makes me wake up and feels so refreshing.
  7. Facial steamer – with just a little water and a few drops of essential oil you have a spa in your home.  It steams so well and opens your pores so you can clean your pores or exfoliate your face.  I love mine and it is such a great value.
  8. LapCos Korean sheet mask – these come in a variety to choose from, Hydration, Aloe, Honey, Milk, etc…My favorite is the Escargot!  I try to focus on anti-aging products the most.  This helps to restore + repair my skin from any damage.  It leaves my skin feeling plump + so youthful – highly recommend.
  9. Hair towel wrap – this is made with 100% real cotton.  I always prefer cotton over microfiber – microfiber doesn’t really help to dry your hair in my opinion.  The cotton helps to absorb all the water and still keeps your hair frizz/damage free. Also comes in various colors.
