Let’s talk nails..
My current fave nail polish colour is actually a base coat. The Grow Stronger Base Coat by Essie is a translucent milky pinkish nude colour. Almost similar to OPI Bubble Bath but with an extra layer of protection. After doing my 10-step skincare regime, 2-in-1 coat/nail polish hybrid will do just fine. Topped with my HG Seche Vite, of course!
suupa late post tonight, but I just wanted to come on here and thank everyone for the birthday wishes today! and share the newest corner of my room including that new new @nudestix and @embryolisse Lait-Creme
I owe everything I know about k-beauty to @peachandlily. I can't thank them enough for bringing so many amazing Korean beauty brands to the US market. It's like a whole other world opened up to me, and I'm a kid in a candy store. .
. Chubby Cheeks* was so kind to me today. It contains a host of my favorites (including betaine, snail filtrate, panethol, aloe juice, ylang ylang, hyaluronic acid, rice ferment filtrate, niacinamide, ginseng, and peptides). The mask is meant to "bring back the chubby cheeks you were born with". I adore this mask, it's so soothing and plumping. It makes my skin look positively dewy!
. If you'd like to see some reviews of Peach and Lily products, click the link in my profile! I just did a large blog post that covers their "best of k beauty" and it breaks things down product by product. Big surprise, their sheet masks are some of my favorites.
#tbt to a day I was SUPER feeling myself. And you know what, I don’t feel bad about it. As much as I am all about passing on the pretty, I know it starts with myself. Sometimes you need to remind yourself that you’re the shit. #passonthepretty#dothemostbethemost#selflove
Enjoy the sunshine and never stop working on your glow game. I’ve got a new post coming up soon that can help you with that! Stay tuned to my IG Stories for all the details! Check out simplymarybeth.com for more! (link in bio)
What’s your hair care routine like?
I recently ran out of my @joico purple toning shampoo and decided to try out the @kristin_ess The One purple shampoo and conditioner set. I’m hoping this doesn’t deposit quite as much purple as the Joico did. It would wash out in 1-2 shampoos but I want a nice silver out of my toning shampoos, not purple. Since I was already ordering I grabbed one of the leave-in conditioners as well. With my fine hair I really need a good detangling mist when my hair’s wet to prevent breakage.
I’m also loving anything from @verbproducts. The whole line is affordable, and on par with brands like Bumble & Bumble for quality. I just opened my second bottle of the leave-in mist, it’s a creamy and moisturizing spray that has been perfect this winter.
So for me haircare is pretty simple, I just want to prevent damage and maintain my color. Which means for the most part I leave it the hell alone. And use a lot of dry shampoo. .
About last night @jordansamuelskin The After Show Treatment Cleanser @lavidobeauty Purifying Facial Cleanser* @jvskincare Euphoria Face Mask* - My go to mask when my skin is dry or irritated. The aloe vera and chamomile work to soothe, while the sodium hyaluronate hydrates and plumps skin. Is it bad to leave masks on way past the directed time? @organicpuristry Flower Water Toner - Very hydrating and has a light, pleasant scent. @cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Power Mucin Essence (not pictured) @farmacybeauty Eye Dew (not pictured) - Went back to a favorite last night. I love how incredibly smooth the formula is, and no eye cream I’ve ever used is as hydrating. @jvskincare Daily Serum* @herbivorebotanicals Pink Cloud Rosewater Moisture Cream* - I have used this every. single. day. since receiving it. This moisturizer is insanely hydrating, plumps skin and reduces any redness. Plus in the morning my skin feels smooth while looking incredibly nourished. Love this product! @sundayriley U.F.O. face oil - At the moment I have two large blemishes so I’m using this to help clear my pores and decongest skin. @sundayriley Saturn Mask (not pictured) - Used this as a spot treatment to dry out said blemishes. One more treatment tonight should clear them up completely. @sangredefruta Egyptian Chamomile Botanical Tonic* - Tried this out last night and I’m really impressed so far. It sprays a very fine, even mist with a beautiful chamomile scent that smells exactly like the tea. Egyptian Blue Chamomile works to calm the mind and nervous system, while at the same time balancing your complexion. I have to say immediately after using this I felt very relaxed and found myself taking a deep breath. Will definitely be using this in my evening routine from now on! @diptyque candle Forêt givrée Candle - Sad I only got the mini version because this Hinoki based scent is so good! @mejuri Links Necklace
