I still use the same cheap powder foundation that I’ve worn since high school, because I haven’t found anything that works better. However, it seems that with some beauty potions the “you get what you pay for” mantra holds true. These are my three favorite splurges—now tell me yours!
Fekkai Protein RX Hair Mask: The ends of my long hair can get dry and brittle, but this mask completely transforms my hair. I use it once a week, and my hair feels like silk. No joke. Bonus: It’s the best smelling thing I’ve ever slathered onto my head.
Lancôme Undereye Concealer: I have raccoon-ish under eye circles no matter how well rested I am. I think my skin is so pale that it’s a little bit transparent, so you can see my innards right through it. This concealer works better than any other I’ve tried, and I’ve tried so many. It does a great job hiding blemishes too. A tube lasts me about a year and half with daily use.
Argan Oil: I posted a while back about using argan and Jojoba oil on my face at night. Argan oil won. It soaks in quickly doesn’t leave my skin greasy like the Jojoba oil did. I almost never break out anymore, and my skin stays perfectly moisturized. I even use it around my eyes and a smooth few drops into my hair to tame any frizzies. You can buy a tiny brand name bottle of Argan oil from Sephora for an arm and a leg, or you can do what I did and get a big 8oz bottle from Rose Mountain Herbs that will last forever.
