Recommended Products

beauty blog recommended productsMy friends ask me for product recommendations all the time. I often end up copying and pasting the same suggestions from one email to another. So it’s easier to share everything here! I’ve divided the products first by cost range (splurge and budget), then by product type. This is a great list to consult if you get a gift card or need birthday/holiday wish list ideas. I will update this page frequently, so check back often. Here’s more information on how to use this page.

(Note that most of the links below are Amazon Associate links and I can’t vouch for every individual seller on Amazon. You can also copy and paste the product names into your browser and search for them on other sites. I recommend joining Sephora‘s VIB and/or SpaceNK‘s NDulge if you tend to shop high-end.)
