I've been holding off on purchasing a lot of new beauty products and have been shopping my stash a lot. I've been trying to rediscover old favorites, use what I have and not have so much excess in my makeup collection. We'll see how long that lasts but for now, I've been doing pretty well.

I will admit, all of these are new to my stash but I've had them for at least 3+ months. One of them I even won in a giveaway! I've realized these are the products I've constantly been reaching for, on a daily basis most of the time, and they've elevated both my skincare and makeup routine.

The best part? All of them are under $40!

Botanics Organic Restoring Night Oil: $17.99

I've been on the hunt for a really great night oil. I wanted something hydrating and healing; I didn't need something overly fancy, just an oil to make my skin feel good. Enter Botanics. I've been obsessed with this brand lately; quality organic skincare at a drugstore price? What more could you want?! I got ahold of their Restoring Night Oil recently and have been using it nightly. It's infused with essential oils such as lavender, chamomile, and geranium to relax your skin (and your mind). The oil is supposed to restore and nourish the skin while you sleep, working with the skin's natural overnight healing process. I've been using it every night for the past few weeks and I love it! It really hydrates my skin but also makes my face look flawless when I wake up. I don't have too many skin issues (knock on wood) but this really enhances all the good things about my skin.

Kylie Cosmetics Skin Concealer: $20.00

Ever since my Queen released these concealers I've been dying to get my hands on one. I kept going back and forth whenever I placed a Kylie Cosmetics order because I was unsure of what the concealer felt like/looked like/what shade I would be. I'm not usually hesitant about buying complexion products online but something was holding me back. However, when they were released in Ulta, I jumped at it. I was finally able to see them in stores over the summer, picked my shade and liked the formula. It's now become one of my everyday concealers. It is medium coverage, blends out really easily, and is pretty long-lasting (in my opinion). I don't notice a ton of creasing and it lays really beautifully on the skin. It's a gorgeous formula and I highly recommend!

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Super Cindy: $34

Charlotte Tilbury strikes again! I've made no secret of it-- Charlotte Tilbury makes my favorite lipsticks of all time! I need/want every single shade of every single line she has. CT was having a sale sometime in July and she had a 'nude lipstick bundle' that had Hepburn Honey and Super Cindy for a discounted price. They were full-size lipsticks for the price of one and a half lipsticks so I jumped at the deal. I've been wanting both shades for a while so it was the perfect storm. I've been dying over Super Cindy! It's a true nude shade with more brown than peach/pink so it's darker than Pillowtalk, which makes it ideal for the chillier months. It looks so good on and has become the lipstick I wear when I'm not sure what to wear.

Clinique Moisture Surge Moisturizer: $21.50

I won this moisturizer in a giveaway recently and was a little skeptical about it. I've tried the Dramatically Different Clinique Moisturizer in the past and it broke me out so I was nervous to try this one. However, it's become one of my favorite nighttime moisturizers. This is a gel moisturizer which for me, is ideal for the warmer months but I've been loving it in combination for the Botanics Oil so I get double hydration. It is so soothing and sinks right into your skin; I swear, I could borderline feel it hydrating my skin. I just use a few dots on my face at bedtime and wake up with refreshed skin. I think this would be a good product for everyone, no matter your age, skin type or concern. It's just a standalone, awesome moisturizer.
