IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Illumination Cream with SPF 50+ $38

This is the easiest one step foundation ever! In one step you get your SPF, awesome anti-aging ingredients and a medium coverage foundation. You’ll also get a nice dewy finish which I love but if you prefer a more satin or matte look check out the original IT Cosmetics CC cream. I’ve been going super low maintenance with this one and just applying it with my fingers.


Fractionated Coconut Oil $13

This has been a life-changing favorite! And the perfect multi-use product to travel with. I’ve been using it as makeup remover, facial cleanser, shaving cream, hair/scalp mask and body lotion. The fact that it’s fractionated means that it doesn’t ever solidify which means that you can use the pump option. SO convenient.


No Tox Life Natural Deodorant Vanilla Sandalwood- $20

This was a super impulse buy from a little farmers market in Venice one afternoon and I couldn’t be happier about it. I recently talked about how much I love the Lavanille Sport Luxe deodorant and it’s still a good one but I have to say this No Tox Life natural deodorant wins in my book. The Vanilla Sandalwood scent is amazing (and they have a TON of different scents equally as amazing). I also picked up one for my husband and he also loves it. I reached out to the company and they were lovely enough to provide you with a promo code for free shipping on orders $40 or more!

Use code INSTALOVE at checkout.


Redken Windblown 05 $19

Honestly, where has this been all my life?! I have fine hair and I love my hair to be loose and wavy but most hairsprays will weight down my hair or leave it crunchy, ew. This stuff is crazy good at holding my beachy waves and it feels like NOTHING in my hair. Seriously get this if your hair is also fine and you can’t find the perfect hairspray.


Mad Hippie Antioxidant Facial Oil $25

I’ve been using this oil morning and night all month, you could say I’ve been slightly obsessed. It is meant to be used as the last step in your skincare routine and leaves my skin feeling soft, plump and hydrated. It also amazingly kind of smells like chocolate. Check out the link above for a full list of all the crazy good ingredients!


Milk Makeup Highlighter shade- Lit $24

I received a sample of this in my Birchbox this month and I am in love. It’s the easiest, most stunning natural highlighter I have ever used. I’ve been hesitant to use cream highlights in the past because of how they layer on top of powder but this one has no problem gliding over-top without messing up the foundation and powder underneath.

Not So Favorite


Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara $23

This mascara crumbled off within a couple hours and I was left with black specs under my eyes, super disappointed. I gave it a good week and it happened every day. If you’re looking to get an amazing long wear mascara go for Benefit’s They’re Real mascara.
