Christmas Skincare Haul

I hope everyone’s holidays were amazing, regardless of what you celebrate! Today I want to share some skincare gifts I received this Christmas that I’m super excited to test out!

I had a really hard time taking these photos, since it was super overcast out and I couldn’t get any good natural light. These are the best I could get, after about 75 shots for a 6 picture blog post haha. Oh well! They’re not as clear as I would like, but that’s okay, because I couldn’t wait any longer to share them!

First up, a giant tub of the St Ives Apricot Scrub, which I know is a cult favorite to many! This is one of my very favorite exfoliators. I previously reviewed the sample size here, and that small amount lasted me a few months, so I’m sure this huge on will last me forever! Grab it here.

My younger sister knew I wanted something to moisturize, so she got me this lovely body butter from Bath and Body Works. It’s warm vanilla sugar scented, and the scent is divine! I can’t wait to use it, I love a delicious scented lotion, and the packaging is adorable! Find it here 🙂

I really wanted a face moisturizer that had a) SPF in it b) wouldn’t clog my pores, and c) would make my skin less dull and dry. This product from Aveeno claims to do all three! If it actually makes my skin positively radiant, I will be super impressed! I know a lot of people love this product,so I hope it works for me too. Find it here. (And grr at that annoying reflective spot! I struggled so hard with these photos!)

Last but not least, an essential oil, which can apparently be used for your face, hair, and body. I’ve never tried one of these before, but I absolutely love the pretty packaging and the cute bottle with its dropper! I have super dry skin, so hopefully this will help me out. Any tips on using oils like these?

I was super excited to receive these for Christmas, and to share them with you, even though my photos weren’t what I’d like haha. What do you think? Do you use any of these products? Would you like to see reviews of any of these? Let me know in the comments! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

10 Beauty Gifts Under $10

Hey guys! I was looking around at wishlists that other bloggers had posted, and I noticed that lots of other bloggers had posted awesome beauty gift ideas, but lots of them were wayyy above my price range (I’m a poor college student!). So I thought I would put together my own beauty gift idea list, with options for a tight budget! Hope this helps you think of those last second gifts or stocking stuffers! (or treat yourself 🙂 ) All of these affordable picks are on my own wishlist too!

1. Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

On sale now for just $10, this cult favorite eyeshadow primer would be perfect for any beauty junkie! (I grabbed myself one!)

2. Milani Foil Eyeshadow Palette

This gorgeously packaged eyeshadow quartet comes in 4 different color combinations! Milani says it’s not a shadow but more of a shine. While I’m not sure what that means, I do know that you can get it for just $9.99 and that I want them all!

3. ELF Lip Exfoliator

I just received this from a friend as a gift, and it is seriously amazing! Its lipstick shape makes it so easy to use, and it’s just $3!

4. Maybelline Face Studio Master Glaze Blush

This product is something I normally wouldn’t look at due to its somewhat odd packaging for a blush, but if you’re looking for a portable blush under $10 this is for you! At just $9.99, it looks like a chapstick, but does come in quite a few colors!

5. Eos Lip Balm in Lemon Drop

Lip balm is something we all need, and this flavor comes with SPF 15, which I love! Plus, it’s only $3.29, and they work amazingly well in addition to lasting forever.

6. Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme

I’m totally obsessed with Milani, if you’re reading this blog for the first time haha! I can’t wait to get my hands on one of these matte lip cremes…they’re just $8.99 and come in 8 colors, just begging to be swatched!

7. Rimmel Scandaleyes Rockin’ Curves Mascara

I love the fun packaging, and Rimmel is one of my favorite drugstore brands. Try this mascara at Target for $5.49 (and let me know how it is if you do!)

8. Physician’s Formula All-In-1 Cheek and Lip Stain

This product actually won an award, and it’s definitely on my list of things to try (to be fair, that list is about a mile long!) Grab it for just $6.95, and it’s hypoallergenic, gluten free, and paraben free!

9. Revlon Brow Fantasy Pencil and Gel

This brow fixer ($8.99) has double the products in one! Definitely something that would help me out, it could even work as an eyeliner in a pinch. I’m on the lookout for new brow products, any suggestions?

10. Swissco Complete Precision Blending Kit

Last but not least, something to help you put it all on! This kit contains a beauty blender and a cute brush, and it’s just $9.99.
