New Beauty Additions…

I recently added two new finds to my beauty routine that I’m a huge fan of.

Urban Decay De-Slick Setting Spray

I know I’m late to the game with Setting Spray but I didn’t think it was necessary until I tried this All Nighter Setting Spray by Urban Decay that a girlfriend had. I have such sensitive, oily skin that adding another product just didn’t appeal to me. However, once I tried this setting spray I was hooked! I decided that I didn’t necessarily need the All Nighter version for everyday use so I tried the De-Slick version to add to my routine. While it’s not a miracle fix for my oily skin (I’m still on the hunt!) it definitely helps in holding off the mid-day shine! I’ve actually become a huge fan and think that it really does help hold my makeup in place all day. It’s a simple lightweight mist that literally doesn’t add an additional layer to your makeup. I highly recommend this product. If you don’t want to commit to the full-size, the travel size is a really affordable option to try. Also, the De-Slick version is half off during Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty Steals on 9/22. I will be adding that to my collection for nights out!

Clinique Smart Night Custom-Repair Moisturizer

I haven’t found a nighttime moisturizer that I’ve loved for years. I’ve tried several different options (from Olay to Belief to Kiehl’s) and just haven’t been happy with any of them. A friend recommended this Clinique Smart Night Custom-Repair Moisturizer. Since it is on the more expensive side of what I like to spend on beauty products, I tracked down a sample to try before buying my full-size jar on sale. I got the Combination to Oily Skin version and love how lightweight it is. The first few nights I used this my face looked like a ball of oil, but my skin eventually got used to it and goes on totally normal now. It’s lightweight, but yet very moisturizing. Again, I highly recommend this product but would wait to buy it until you can find it on sale.

 

I’d love to hear any good moisturizers you recommend!
