My daily beauty regimen and products rarely change. After years of searching for and testing out animal-friendly products, I'm not exactly ahead of the curve on trying out new products or experimenting with new trends.
Recently, however, I've expanded my normal routine to include a few new things that I'm really enjoying right now. While none of these items are particularly cutting edge in the beauty the market, they are new to me and quickly moving up my list of "must haves" in my beauty buys.
Burt's Bees Lip Gloss: In the last year or two, I've become more of a lipstick girl. But for the weekends or my "I'm feeling too lazy to try today" days at work, nothing is easier than swiping on some gloss. Burt's Bees makes a really good, long-lasting gloss in a range of colors that are not only animal-friendly and earth-friendly, but are easy to find at any Target or drug store.
e.l.f. Face Primer: Face primer is still a relatively new thing for me. Most of the beauty experts recommend it, but when I looked at prices online for primers, they seemed ridiculously expensive for what they claimed to deliver. That is, until I found this primer - part of the animal-friendly line e.l.f. - which can be found at most Target and WalMart stores. And, at just $6, it's definitely the right price for creating a more flawless makeup finish.
The Body Shop Body Butter: I am basically obsessed with this stuff right now. The Brazil Nut scent reminds me of summer without being overly sweet, and the buttery texture of this moisturizer makes it super easy to smooth on after a shower. My skin has never been softer.
