Five Favorite Beauty Buys: January 2021

January 30

Lips: Summer Friday Lip Butter Balm
This is by far one of my favorite lip balms on the market and it’s also one of my favorite beauty brands (by Marianna Hewitt). Feels like butter, but without the grease – it’s filled with ingredients like seed butters, shea and vegan waxes. Extra plus, smells so good (it has a vanilla scent)
Available at Apotheca Beauty and Sephora

Deodorant: Malin + Goetz Bergamot Deodorant
I struggle to find great natural deodorants that I actually like but this one feels so good on the skin, glides well and is so refreshing. The deodorant is formulated with natural bergamot and odor-neutralizing enzymes.
Available at Apotheca Beauty

Palette: Natasha Denona face glow palette
I’m obsessed with anything that gives me a glow. Been using this palette by Natasha Denona, a new Sephora brand that’s free of paragons and cruelty free.
Available at Sephora

Face: Givenchy Teint Couture City Balm Radiant Perfecting Skin Tint
I avoid foundations as much as I can, and only use a tint or bb cream when I need to. Been using this one from Givenchy, weightless, has SPF 25 and protects the skin against pollution, UV rays, and blue light emitted by digital screens.

Supplement: Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides
One supplement I’ve been taking daily is the VP Collagen peptides, The most abundant protein in the body, responsible for healthy hair, skin, nails, bones, ligaments and tendons, our levels of collagen start to decline as we age which is why it’s important to ‘top up the tank’.
