5 Products That Work Like Magic!

5 Products That Work Like Magic!

Hey guys! The products I’m showing today truly work like magic and have quickly become some of my “holy grail” items.  I hope you try these out and they work just as well for you!

The first item is the Artis Oval Brush, which has truly made a big difference in my makeup application process.  I am an avid user and lover of the Beauty Blender, which is the best makeup sponge out there.  The Oval brush, however, had taken its place recently.  I own the oval 8, the second largest brush from the collection.  The collection includes various sizes of eye and face brushes.  What make these so special are the bristles.  I would routinely come across them when shopping in department stores and stop with my friend to touch them.  They really are the softest makeup tools I have come across!  They are gentle, easy to use, and the results are beautiful.  I start by applying my Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream to moisturize my skin and create a nice base for applying foundation or bb cream.  Next, I place a very small amount of my bb cream using the Artis brush and start blending outward.  This brush blends your makeup in seconds and doesn’t show any of those frustrating brush strokes.  Overall, its quick, easy, uses less product, and looks flawless!

The next product is a skincare item I have loved for your years, the Mario Bedescu Drying Lotion.  While overall my skin is normal and not prone to breaking out, I have had my fair share of pimples here and there.  This product works wonders for drying them up.  Let the pink clay solution and the liquid settle so they separate, DO NOT SHAKE!  Then dip a Q-tip into the bottom and place a small amount on the blemish. By morning the pimple will be significantly reduced, if not completely gone altogether.

Another skincare item which truly works like magic is the Peter Thomas Roth Firmx Peeling Gel exfoliator. Take a small dime sized amount and on makeup-free, but dry skin begin to massage into your face.  Instantly you will feel the gel getting thicker and bunching up with, yes, your dead skin. While its slightly gross at first, its also extremely entertaining and effective.  You can actually see the dead skin coming off your face. Then rinse with water and baby soft skin is revealed! 

The last skin item I wanted to mention is the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Night Cream.  The results I experienced after one night of using this cream were incredible.  It is a relatively thick cream that is super moisturizing and softening.  While it is pricey, a little goes a long way and all you need is a dime sized amount.  By morning your skin will feel and look significantly plumper, softer, and more even. 

Last but not least is the Clothing Swipe from Reviver.  I received a sample of this product years ago in my BirchBox and never used it.  I went through a move, rediscovered it, and decided to give it a go.  This product is perfect for your purse, office desk, or gym bag.  One swipe on your clothing and it smells like it was just washed.
