A roundup of Amazon beauty buys, most of which I own and love, and a few of which have been on my radar lately. I recently ordered this cute terry cloth headband for use while washing my face as well as Julep’s hydrating tinted balm, which had been getting a lot of buzz. The Julep balm is INCREDIBLE — I’m so impressed! Glides on beautifully and comes in lots of great colors. I ordered in the “nectar pink” but they sent me the “90s neutral” by accident. I’m keeping both! I also have to give a shoutout to this $5 multi-stick, which I bought in the sparkling peach color. It has a nice slick texture to it (reminds me of the Tarte cheek stains — actually, the peach color is really really similar in color and texture to Tarte’s “Tipsy”) and is mildly pigmented, so you can slick it on and blend it in easily. Very buildable/semi-sheer color. Really impressed with it! Going to keep this in my purse because it’s conveniently compact and can double as lip/cheek color.
If there’s one item you must try from this roundup, however, it’s Origins’ Ginzing gel moisturizer — my favorite brightening moisturizer for spring/summer months. Bonus: it’s under $25. My mom turned me onto this moisturizer last year, and I haven’t looked back. It’s strikingly similar to Clarins’ Extra-Firming Energy moisturizer, which I also loved and used to the absolute last drop. (I distinctly remember scraping every last ounce of it out of the jar using one of these beauty product scoops my mom gave me in my stocking!).
