Three New Beauty Products

As much as I am a creature of habit, I also like branching out and trying new beauty products. Often times I return to the tried and true (mascara), and other times I love constantly switching it up (shampoo). 

Recently I've tried three new items that I wanted to share here.

Beautycounter Nourishing set. My friend Alicia stuck a sample pack of this line in my mailbox recently. Last night I used all of the nighttime products (cleanser, exfoliant, eye cream, night cream) and this morning I will be using the day cream and eye cream. I am going to use this set for the next few days and report back on Friday with how I'm liking it. I will say that last night I was surprised at how smooth my skin felt after the exfoliating polish because it really is not a harsh, rough scrub like some of the others I've used. 

Added a new blush to the mix! I'm a diehard Bobbi Brown blush girl (in Pale Pink, natch) but I have also been using this Tarte blush in Paaarty to add a little depth. So I put it all over my cheeks and then just add a pop of the bright pink right at the apples of my cheeks. Paarty is also a nice color if I'm going a little more low-key with my overall makeup. 

Postpartum hair is no joke -- losing all of that hair made such a noticeable difference in the overall thickness of my hair. I did lop off 6" recently in order to boost the volume of my hair, and I also ordered this Jason Thin to Thick extra volume shampoo after reading all of the AWESOME and promising ratings. Everyone said that after 1-2 months of using it, they noticed a remarkable change. I order mine from Grove Collaborative, but you can also find it on Amazon.

Are there any products that you've been wanting to try out that you'd want me to review here?


  1. Please report back on how you like the shampoo! My hair is finally growing back in, but it's slow as molasses. Anything that can make it thicker is a WIN!

  2. I am going to try that shampoo! I'm past the losing my hair phase but my locks are definitely not thick like they were during pregnancy and nursing. And now I have the oh so lovely one inch baby hairs as it regrows.

  3. I NEED to try that shampoo. I have lots of very fine hair, so it sounds awesome! I have been on the hunt for a good drugstore blush. I've had the same MAC compact forEVER and just need something new/good/pretty/inexpensive, etc. I'm gonna try this one in Luminoso thanks to a Refinery29 post!

  4. Thanks for the shampoo recommendation. My hair is always too fine and thin so I'm always looking for something to boost the volume. I need to just chop it!

  5. I like Tarte blush as well... good stuff. I have been struggling with incredibly dry post-partum skin this time... like flaking on my cheeks/chin that will NOT go away no matter what I do. I bought this on a whim at the grocery last week as I know hyaluronic acid is really moisturizing without irritating my super sensitive skin ( I've been using this UNDER my regular moisturizers/oil/sunscreen and I think it's the ticket. Finally helping my skin be less flaky with zero irritation.

  6. postpartum hair loss is no joke. Every morning I about have panic attack when I see how much hair is in my brush...It is awful! Will have to try this stuff out to see if it makes my hair look any fuller.

  7. Thanks for these tips! I need to try BeautyCounter and I'd love to know how that shampoo works for you!

  8. I love the Bobbi Brown Pale Pink! I was scared at first, due to my paleness, but it works. I'll have to try the Tarte blush!

  9. Have you tried any of the living proof thickening sprays? I have such thin hair and have heard such great things!

  10. I'm a Pale Pink fan myself! Thanks for the shampoo tip - I have the thinnest hair imaginable and have tried everything, but I've never heard of that brand before.

  11. The Exfoliator is really soft on your skin not harsh at all! Thank you for trying out the products and branching out April!!! I so appreciate your blog and mentioning what you think about them!!!! Thank you!!!!!
