Current Crushes : Beauty Product Review

One of my favorite things is to find a new product that performs beyond expectations! With so many products out there, some that can be quite pricey, I like to know that my money is going to be well spent. I thought that it would be fun to share a few of my favorites with you. Products that were worth the price and performed above par. Two are all time hall of famers in my mind, the other two are current favs that I'm loving right now. 

Hall of Fame: 
Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser by Philosophy  {link}
Clarisonic Mia  {link}

Currently Loving:
Hot Off the Press Thermal Protection Hairspray  {link}
Sugarbomb Blush/Bronzer  {link}

The lineup

Purity face wash, by Philosophy 
 This face wash has been a favorite of mine for years! The main reason that I love it so much is that it is gentle and can be used for an everyday face wash but also, easily removes make-up. I was so impressed the first time I used it with how easily it removed eye make-up that I've been hooked ever since!

Clarisonic Mia
 My face never has felt cleaner than after using my Clarisonic. I feel like this piece was a hard sell for me to begin with because of the price point. However, once I used one, I understood the value that this would add to my beauty routine. I've been cleansing this way for about 3 years and would not use anything else!

Hot Off the Press by Paul Mitchell
 I recently saw this recommended on a hair tutorial here. I have no idea how I even wound up watching this video but I wanted to try the protection hairspray. I heat style my hair on the daily and know that I should be doing something to keep it from getting damaged. However, truth be told, I've been heat styling without protection. Guilty! I got this at Ulta with a coupon and really love it so far! I does not make my hair "wet" the way that some heat protectant sprays have and it also does not make it crispy. I also really appreciate that it is a hairspray and not just a protectant spray because I've noticed it helps my curls last longer. 

Sugarbomb by Benefit
I have been trying out (and loving!) several Benefit products lately. This is my current fav, by far. A go-to for blush and bronzing. I had been using Orgasm (excuse the name) blush by NARS and still love that as well, but this is just a fabulous and gives a nice bronze as well!

Hope you enjoy some of my current crushes!
