Beauty Products You Never Knew You Needed

Best anti aging products silk pillowcase
I'm just gonna apologize now for the money you're about to want to spend.  So, I'm sorry.  I warned you...continue reading at your own risk.  But honestly, the majority of these are so affordable and can be found at the drugstore.  My favorite is the one that's just a bit heavier on the wallet.

While having a self-love/pamper day the other day, I was thinking about how much I loved all of these products, and how I didn't start using most of these until very recently.  I try to love on my skin and hair at least once a week, and I thought this would be a fusion between my pampering routine/favorite beauty products rolled into one.

Let's start with the affordable favorites.

Collagen Eye Pads: You've probably seen some version of these all over social media.  There are a ton of different brands and price ranges to choose from, but I've only tried the cheap ones and I'm not complaining.  Lauryn from The Skinny Confidential mentioned these as a favorite, and I immediately added them to my Amazon cart.  I've been pretty impressed and love wearing them for 10-15 minutes in the mornings when I need to de-puff.  Or during that time of the month when you burst into tears for absolutely no reason and then realize that your eyes look like you're allergic to shell fish.

Oh, and did I mention that they are only $5.99?

Lush Mask: A must-have for a DIY spa day.  It's easy to get sucked into the black hole of Lush and feel like you want everything in the store, so I'm here to tell you that the Mask of Magnamity is a good start.  It does everything I look for in a mask: unclog pores, balance the skin, and feels cool to the touch.  Plus it smells like fruity pebbles.

Coconut Oil: Duh.  I lather myself up in this pretty much all the time, but I always make sure to do it when I'm having my at-home spa day.  I use it head to toe, and there's just something about that fresh coconut oil glow.  Right now I'm using one from Trader Joe's, but any brand works.  Just go for an organic and unrefined version.

Dry Brush:  Here's a product I knew nothing about until recently.  I usually forget this step everyday, but I do it as a little treat to myself.  Start from your toes and brush upwards in small circular motions.  Move up to your chest, and you always want to brush towards your heart.  This helps circulation, cellulite, and your skin tone.  I always feel extra glowy after drybrushing and putting on coconut oil.

Face Peel: There's nothing like a facial, but this comes pretty damn close.  This Lemon Strip Flash peel does wonders for pores.  In case you can't tell, my pores have been my main issue lately.  Breakouts have been mild, but these dang pores look like craters when oily (thanks, mom).  This peel tightens them up instantly and makes you look like you've had a minor face lift.  It's 20% AHA, so it's powerful enough to dissolve the dead skin cells and get the gorgeous, healthy cells to the surface.

Silk Pillowcase: K, ya'll.  This pillowcase is the real reason I wrote this post.  Any facialist, dermatologist, and hairdresser will vouch for me here.  There's nothing like sleeping on a quality, silk pillowcase at night.  Good products are key, but investing in a silk pillowcase ensures that you won't wake up with sleep lines, a rats nest, and will keep wrinkles at bay for longer than you think.

Trust me, you'll thank me later.  This pillowcase seriously makes me excited to go to bed.  Not that I needed another reason, but I get all giddy to lay down.  Plus, how freaking gorgeous is this taupe color?  It comes in a few colors, so if taupe isn't your thing, no worries.  I love the black silk too!  If you need a king size, check here!

And, that's it!  My cabinet's stocked with tons of other crap, but these would win a medal if that was a thing.  Let me know if you've tried any or if you'll be picking something up!
