Random Thursday: Favorite Beauty Products

Welcome to the 5th Random Thursday with NatalieKailyn, and I. 
It's so fantastic that so many of you awesome peeps have decided to join us on a weekly basis for this super fun link-up.

This weeks topic is pretty rad & will hopefully give you gals some new products to try out:

I'm definitely not one of those women that wears tons of make up or has a strict beauty regime. I suppose I'm beginning to get a little more into keeping my skin clean & moisturized because I'll be 30 in a few months and those damn wrinkles are only bound to get bigger :/

Here's what I use...

Olay Complete Moisturizer w/SPF 15
My skin can be kind of an asshole sometimes, being oily one day & dry another, so this is the only moisturizer that works regardless of what it decides to be. The best part is that it doesn't cost me an arm & a leg so I don't feel bad using it all the time.

Olay Clean & Mild Cloths
These things are amazing! I used to use a different brand but Rusty made me try these when I ran out of my old ones and I'm never going back. I use them to remove my makeup at night when I'm too lazy to wash my face or in the middle of day when I feel my face needs to a bit of freshening up.

e.l.f. Eyeshadow Primer
I'd never used a primer until a swap buddy sent this to me a while back and now I'll never go without it. Say 'sayonara' to oily eyelids & creased eyeshadow with this beauty. Also, it's only $1 at Target...woot!

Soothing Eye Gel
Sadly it's always puffy eye central up in here. This soothing eye gel was first given to me as sample by the MIL like 4 years ago. No lie, it works so great I still carry around an emergency sample tube with me everywhere I go. Bonus: it feels amazing on a sunburned face. 

My other faves that are pretty much bought based on what's on SALE:
Lip gloss in light pink/clear, twist pencil eyeliner, liquid eyeliner (only in this form), pressed powder (always Covergirl), black mascara, and eyelash curler because I have stupid super straight eyelashes.

  1. Ok, I need that Elf primer! I have some too, but by a different brand and it sucks!!!

    And Oil of Olay makes me BREAKOUT! Baaaaaaaad!


  2. Oh, I totally love e.l.f. products!

  3. I want to try the Olay Clean and Mild cloths and the soothing eye gel. This is a great topic, we will all find some new products to buy (that have already been tried and tested).

  4. I love the E.L.F. Eyeshadow Primer...i feel like it works better than the MAC paint pot most of the time.

  5. All linked up Lin ... I don't do beauty, but I did it just for you ... Those products look really good. I've heard Olay are really fantastic products ...

    Have a great day!


  6. I want the soothing eye gel now... :)

  7. I've just starting experimenting with E.L.F. products and I feel they're kinda hit (blush & blotting papers) and miss (mascara). I've tried a couple of eyeshadow primers in the past with mixed results, and I can't bring myself to spend $20 on a 'good' one - for a buck I gotta give this a try!

  8. Love that you found one of your new favourite products thought a swap! This is great and you have inspired me to link up! The I can share an Aussie perspective, as I have never heard of some of your products!

  9. When Oil of Olay got expensive, I went to the Equate brand. Half the price. Same results. And I have really sensitive skin too. That's why I can't use Cover Girl foundation or powder. Makes me break out.
    Like you, I don't put a whole lot into products. I'd rather buy clothes or purses!


I love comments!
