Here are some new beauty buys I’ve been loving lately / can’t wait to try out. Do you or have you used any of them before? What are some of your recent favorite finds?

Thayer’s Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner –¬†Admittedly, I used this in high school before switching to the Clinique 3-step system. After moving on from that system, I stopped using toner all together. Lately though, my skin has been feeling so blah and I came across this at Whole Foods and decided to give it another go. A week in and I’m seeing some improvement so I’ll continue using it. It feels quite refreshing.

SuperNail Cuticle Oil –¬†I’m not the best at caring for my nails. I would love to have pretty painted nails all the time, but I’ve never been in the habit to maintain them (save for the occasional trimming and nail salon visit). Particularly my cuticles. I found this on Amazon and it had superb reviews. I didn’t purchase it until I walked into a Sally Beauty Supply. It’s a large bottle and was relatively cheap so I’m looking forward to using it on a daily basis.

Super Pointy Cotton Swabs – These are perfect for those hard to reach places or to clean up excess nail polish.

Dry Skin Brush – For years now, I’ve read about the numerous benefits dry skin brushing has to offer, but have been admittedly too lazy to try it out. Well, here’s my brush. I’m halfway there.
