The Beauty Products We Couldn’t Live Without in 2017

2017 felt like the year that I was not only collecting products, but educating myself on them more than average. I was constantly talking with my friends about what they were using and getting feedback via Instagram and Instagram Stories on what was working and what wasn’t. In 2018, my hope is that I do the opposite. I learn to live with less! How can I become more creative and resourceful with what I already have to avoid spending more money – another New Year’s resolution that we’ll get to soon. One thing that I learned about myself this year is that I no longer need to have a facial once a season. I used to convince myself that this was what I needed because seasons in the Bay Area were so harsh on my skin and so different that I needed to restart and refresh my routine with a facial. Turns out, I was lying to myself and didn’t need it and making excuses. You can create your own facials at home and you can moisturize and exfoliate your skin without breaking the bank. My favorite products in 2017 did JUST that. They looked like they could’ve been more high-end, but were actually affordable and did the job and more.

Glossier Boy Brow – $16

2017 was the year that I discovered that I could do something with my eyebrows! I don’t know what took us so long, but just like everyone says, Boy Brow really is a game changer. A few swipes of these across my brows keeps everything together and more importantly, natural looking. I also learned how to fill in my own eyebrows this year as well, but it’s not something that I feel like I can pull off as an everyday look rather than more of a day to night. Boy Brow gives me that everyday feel, but also cuts down on my getting ready time. For $16, you’ll be happy with this purchase, I promise.

October Favorites

Favorite TV Show – Riverdale

I’ve been hearing about this series for awhile now, but never saw myself as the kind of person that could binge watch a show. It is only in its second season though so you may have though “well, better to start now than when it is in its 4th, right?” When Kevin was in town, he set up my Netflix for me so that I could watch directly from my TV and that was life changing. After he left, this was the first show I turned on and within just a few days, I had finished the entire first season. I love a good CW series and didn’t find myself resonating too strongly with Dynasty (a new series from this past fall.) The show reminds me a little bit of Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars, but not complex enough that I get confused by all the story lines. I’m also particularly excited by this romance between Betty and Jughead. I’m familiar with the comics, but not the storyline from the comics so it’s almost like beginning this series with a fresh start!

Favorite Album – Odesza – A Moment Apart

In the years that they’ve been around, I had never gotten a chance to see Odesza live up until just last weekend! Obviously, I’m super biased towards any musician or band that comes out of Seattle, but there’s something special to see someone charge $5-8 for a ticket all the way up until now when they’ve sold out three nights in a city that isn’t their hometown and I’m forced to buy it on Stubhub. I’ve been listening to this album weekly since it came out and was even more excited when I found out I’d be seeing them in concert at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley – a first for me! There’s not one song that I don’t like. Listen to it from start to finish.

Everlane Pima Micro Rib Long-Sleeve Crew – $30

I was really lucky when I had the chance to buy this tee in stores last weekend because now it’s totally waitlisted. Bummer! I have a couple of simple black long-sleeve tees already at home, but it feels as though you can never have enough. There are so many fabrics to buy them in, fits, some can be a turtleneck. This one, in particular, I knew I didn’t have and needed to have. It’s ribbed material and completely fitted so when you wear it tucked into pants, it’s very chic and since it’s already in black, naturally slimming. Since I purchased it, I’ve already worn it three times and I’m glad I got it before having to wait until March. At just $30 a pop, I wish I would’ve known sooner so that I could buy this in all the colors.

Favorite Product – Malin + Goetz Detox Face Mask – $44

My collection of masks at home are growing! While I love trying new products, I started to have this inkling that the products I was receiving or being gifted with weren’t always the ones that were best for my skin. Were they for more general skin types? For those with dry or sensitive skin? I was using all different kinds, but I wasn’t sure if anything was actually happening so I decided to a store I trusted to find something that fit what I was looking for. I landed on this Malin + Goetz mask, which has been my favorite. I use it twice a week and for only five minutes, which means I don’t have to wait around for a long time for it to do its thing. As soon as it hits your skin, it begins to start foaming so make sure you put on a thick layer and get every inch of your skin for it to be in full effect. It’s still early and I’m not sure if I can pin point any differences yet, but my hope (or what I was promised) is that my skin will start to look brighter and break out less.
