This is where I talk about some of the beauty products I've been loving lately...

Formulated with a salmon complex, collagen, PDR, and fermented oil from Jeju, this moisturizing balm has anti-aging benefits and can help stimulate collagen production to restore elasticity to skin. It can be  used to infuse dry, tired skin with a moisturizing glow, on dry spots, as a lip balm and as a setting balm to last longer. I was sure if I would like this at first but it's lovely to treat dry spots and use under face masks. It's not sticky or greasy and just imparts the right amount of moisture to soothe my skin. I also feel like it has worked to even out my skin tone as well. The only thing I don't love is the fragrance which is on the heavy side.
$31.49 (0.32 oz / 9 g) at Amazon

This essence combines a 74.3% triple snail complex with 5% niacinamide which are two of my favorite skincare ingredients. I got this essence at a time when my skin was acting up due to a retinoid product I was using and it was a total skin saver. It is soothing and hydrating and boosts radiance all at once. Definitely an upgrade from the COSRX Snail Mucin 96% Power Repairing Essence which is an old favorite. The dual chamber design packaging is awesome too. I'm now using this alongside a tretoinin cream from Musely to minimize dryness and irritation.
$25 (2.70 fl.oz / 80 ml ) at Amazon

I picked up this rehydration serum with 5 forms of hyaluronic compounds with varying molecular weights to use as a hydration booster during the winter months. I've been using as the last step before my moisturizer and it does a really good job of sealing in hydration. It also does an amazing job of plumping and smoothing my skin. It is a tad thick and sticky which takes a little getting used to but I like it and it's quite affordable too. 
$14 (1.01 fl.oz / 30 ml ) at Deciem

This lightweight, silicone-free styling cream features 450-degree heat protection and style memory that  create full and bouncy movement while helping hair to retain it's style. I like multi-tasking beauty products so the claim got me to try this got this and I love it. It smoothes my hair and reduces frizz without weighing my hair down. Instead it imparts shine and bouncy volume that lasts between washes. I wish it were fragrance-free but the minty coconut scent isn't too bad and it does fade.
$29 (4.5 fl.oz / 133 ml ) at Ulta Beauty, Space NK, Amazon

This eye cream appealed to me because the 10% vitamin C, green tea, grape seed, collagen and CBD formulation is specifically designed to help improve the appearance of dark circles and de-puff under eyes for a well rested appearance. At first I didn't think this eye cream was right for me because it stung a little when I put it on but I waited until my skin was less sensitive and it wasn't an issue. This eye cream has a silky luxurious texture that absorbs and hydrates well. I noticed that my dark circles looked better within a week. It loses some points for the jar packaging that was crazy hard to open.
$65 (0.5 oz / 15 mll ) at Sephora, Credo Beauty

The heat protection cream sounds awesome. It is important to protect hair from the heat. I also like the sound of the eye cream. Have a lovely day!
