I don’t wear makeup, and I never really have. Sure, I went through that phase in 8th grade where all I wanted to do was wear makeup; I wore blue eye shadow, and put on mascara so horribly I hardly realized it, but hey it’s part of growing up.
But I stopped wearing makeup, mostly because I didn’t understand the need for it. Going through that process every morning is way too time-consuming for me; I always thought I had better things to do than worry about my appearance. Even when it comes to clothing, I figure as long as I buy nice-looking clothes, it won’t matter what I throw on in the morning.
The thing is I do care about to a certain extent how I look, everyone does, and I have found some pretty awesome skin care products and decided to share them with you, so let’s jump into it….
- EOS Lip Balm
I know this is far from new, but EOS lip balm is one of the few lip balms that actually work for me. And my family caught on, so now I have like six lip balms that I will take me like two years to go through.
Side note: EOS hand cream on the other hand is terrible in my view. It’s packaged in a small container and therefore has to contain extra water in order to be squeezed out, and this water only dries out your skin more. Which leads me to Number 2.
- Wick Witch Apothecary Body Butter
This is a small brand that I only recently discovered. I usually use just normal Body Shop Shea Butter, but a friend of mine received this for Christmas, but seeing as she works as a nurse in a scent-free environment she couldn’t use it and gave it to me instead.
It smells so nice, and I honestly want to take a road trip up to this shop because I haven’t been yet, but it smells so amazing and I checked out their Instagram (link here), and they have so many other products, I’m sure anyone can find something in there.
While it’s not a skin-care product, I kind of count it as a beauty one because everyone needs some awesome hair elastics, and these little Invisibobble’s are just that. Again I received these for Christmas, and fell in love with them. Before I cut my hair, it was so long and with these elastics I could twist my hair up and it’d stay put, I didn’t have to do anything extra to it (however the bun stayed in better when my hair was still wet, but either way it works great!).
While I don’t wear makeup, that doesn’t mean I can’t have an arsenal of awesome beauty and skincare products at my disposal.
