Spring is a time of rejuvenation and rebirth. Your skin routine needs some renewal as well. Beyond The Makeup Brush wants to share our favorite skincare products to get your skin spring ready! I love trying the latest skin products out there but try to keep main staples that I use year round. One of those beauty product staples is Dove soap. I have used Dove soap since I was in high school, which was recommended by my dermatologist. Gals, you can’t go wrong with Dove soap its gentle on your skin and is very affordable.

One beauty product you definitely want to invest in is a facial cleansing brush. One great brand is Clarisonic or if you’re a beauty on a budget check outHealth Pro Exfoliating/Cleansing Face Brush which can be purchased on Ebay for $39.95. I use my brush about once a week to get all the impurities out. It tends to dry out my skin if I use it more than that.

Another to die for favorite of mine is Pixi Skintreats Rose Oil Blend which can be found at your nearest Target store for around $24.99. This is another great essential you must have in your daily skin routine. I tend to get really dry skin due to some of the prescription acne creams I use. A little dab of this in the morning before I put on my makeup does the trick.

I just recently discovered the Bliss beauty line and wanted to see what all the hype was about. I purchased the Bliss Jelly Glow Peel and Bliss Ex-Glosion Eye Cream at Target for $9.99 and $17.99. I really like the Jelly Glow Peel if your looking for a a gentle cleanser this is a girl’s dream! I’m starting to use the Glosion Eye Cream at night and so far I haven’t seen any noticeable results but it is a nice gentle cream as well.

Drum roll please…last but definitely not least are my two favorite beauty products No. 7 Restore and Renew Face and Neck Multi Action Serum which can be purchased at Target for $33.99. This serum is a beauty blogger’s must have serums. It is targeted to treat both the face and neck with clinically proven results. I have been using it for about a month now and have noticeably seen results on my neck and face. I use this serum at night after I wash my face and put a dab on my neck and face with an upward motion. The price is a little on the high side but for a retinol formula it’s definitely adorable!

My second must have beauty product I can’t live with out is CeraVe Moisturizing Cream which can be purchased at Target for $10.19. I can’t say enough good things about this cream. It is dermatologist recommended and is great for dry skin. I have used this cream for a few years now and will never go back to another. It is a thick cream that is fragrance and oil free that soothes dry and irritated skin. So there you have it friends now go do some spring cleaning!!

Get The Buzz On My Latest Beauty Buys!


Sometimes in life we need a little change.  Whether it’s changing the shade of your lipstick from a pale pink to a rosy red or a simple shimmer added to your latest shade of blush.  Ah, it’s the small things in life that make life worth living right? I love trying new products and I’m here to give you the 411 on what the latest buzz in beauty products are.

If you have read my previous posts you might recall me talking about Thrive Causemetics.  I love this company and what it stands for.  Thrive Causemetics is “Beauty with a Purpose.” Thrive’s goal is to donate a  product for each purchase to a woman in need. They are 100% cruelty free and vegan!  In the past I have tried their eyeshadow palettes and eyeliner and have not been disappointed. Recently, I decided to purchase their “Headliner” lipstick in the shade “Kennedy” which is a blue red shade that looks great on almost every skin tone, I am wearing all products listed in picture below.  It is a creamy texture that instantly hydates your lips and lasts all day. It can be purchased on their website at Thrive Causemetics for $26.00 and comes with a free adorable makeup bag.  How can you go wrong?

Products used: Nars Blush in “Orgasm,” Thrive Causmetics Lipstick in the shade “Kennedy,” and Pixi “Rose Oil Blend.”

The second product I recently purchased is Nars Blush in the shade “Orgasm,” I’m a big fan of Princess Meghan Markle and love her fashion sense and style, One of her favorite beauty products she loves wearing is Nars Blush in the shade “Orgasm” that gives her that natural rosy glow.   I purchased this shade for myself on their website Nars Cosmetics for $30.00.  I love that it gives me a subtle peachy glow with a little shimmer added to it.  If you go on the Nars Cosmetics website it gives you a variety of shades that you can choose from virtually by uploading your picture on their website. Pretty cool huh?

The third product that I keep seeing reviews about on other blogs and articles is Pixi Beauty Products.  I was headed to my nearest Target so I decided to browse the cosmetic section and see what I could find.  I’m a huge fan of trying different skincare treatments so I decided to purchase their Pixi Skintreats “Rose Oil Blend,” and give it a whirl.  Pixi’s face oil can be used before and after you take your makeup off for the day. You just need a few drops for each application to leave your skin feeling soft and refreshed all day.  The great thing about this product is that it contains all natural products such as sweet almond, rosehip, jojoba and is cruelty free.  It can be purchased at Target or you local drugstore for around  $24.00. If you have a derma roller it can be used alongside the oil in order to rejuvenate the skin. I am wearing it under my makeup in the picture shown above.  Remember friends change is always good!
