Welcome back to my blog! Last time I left off with my favorite beauty buys of 2017 and now we're moving on to skincare buys of 2017.

Best Mineral Soak: This Dr. Teal's Ultra Moisturizing Avocado Oil Mineral Soak was my most used and most loved soak of 2017. If you're needing to get your body hydrated this is definitely the product you'll want to try! This mineral soak always leaves my body feeling twice as hydrated and smooth after soaking in it for about 20 minutes. It tends to help my aches too.

Best Body Lotion: My dad is the first person to buy me this Ahava Mineral Body Lotion as we both suffer from extremely dry skin and this is the only lotion I have tried so far that really helps my skin. It does run a little pricey at $29 for 8.5 oz but a little of this lotion goes a long way so I don't mind spending a little more on a lotion that really does the job.

Best Face Wash: This St. Ives Green Tea Scrub is my ride or die. I have used this stuff for years and it's never let me down once! The smell is amazing, the results are actually there and I do believe it's helped with my redness and blackheads, and the price is what makes it super appealing at only $3.59 a bottle.

I think this might be my favorite type of post to do for this blog even though it's only like my second official blog post. I have decided to pick out some of my favorite buys of 2017 into a couple of different categories. All of these are based off of my own opinion and have not been paid to mention any of these products. :)

I am going to start off with my favorite category, makeup!


Best Lip Balm: I absolutely love this SEPHORA COLLECTION Coconut Water Lip Balm & Scrub! I can get picky about the lip balm I use because not all work well with my lips. We live in the desert so my lips get pretty dry and these seem to really hydrate my lips without making them feel sticky or gross.

Best Lipstick: Okay this Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Posh Spice I have only really used since the last few months of 2017 BUT I have to say that it ruled my 2017! I have tried this lipstick before but didn't like how the color looked on me originally but now for some reason I absolutely adore the color and how unique it is. I am super fair so I honestly believe this color would look good on anyone!

Best Primer: This Too Faced Hangover Primer has been my favorite primer for years so it would be very unnatural of me to not make it the best primer on my 2017 beauty list. I always feel so much refreshed after applying it to my face and the smell is to die for, if you don't like the smell of coconuts this isn't the product for you. Can you tell I'm obsessed with coconut at this point? ;)

Best Foundations: I couldn't choose just one foundation for best foundation, so I decided to pick my two favorites with one being high end beauty and the other drugstore. We'll start off with my high end beauty favorite, BECCA Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation. This foundation is medium coverage but I feel like it's buildable to full coverage. It will give you the most radiant glow which is why I really love this foundation for Spring and Summer. Next up, we have the L.A. Girl PRO Coverage HD illuminating foundation (Whew, that's a mouthful.) This foundation is drugstore price but high end quality. This foundation reminds me so much of an Urban Decay foundation! I really love the finish of this foundation and the amount of shade choices is really impressive. I had no issues finding the perfect shade even with my super fair skin. The best part of this foundation is that it's only $10!

Best Bronzer: I'm going to be the oddball this year and not pick Benefit's Hoola Bronzer, instead I'm sticking with my ride or die bronzerToo Faced Chocolate Soleil in Milk Chocolate. I'm a huge fan of Too Faced products since I discovered the brand back in 2014 and quite honestly I've had the same Chocolate Soleil bronzer since 2016, it's almost a miracle that it's lasted me this long because I don't go super light on my bronzer. This is the perfect shade to bronze on fair skin and I would highly recommend it! Plus, who doesn't love their makeup to smell like chocolate? That's another perk of this awesome bronzer.

Best Mascara: This Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara has easily become my favorite. I love how thick and voluminous this mascara makes my lashes without making them clump.

Best Setting Powder: The Rimmel Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder keeps my face from getting oily and really does the job, not much to say about it besides that.. oh, and it's only $4! :)

That rounds up my beauty favorites of 2017, look out for my next best buys of 2017 which will be for skincare & hair.
