Happy Wednesday everyone! Today I am sharing a few of my favorite beauty buys that I have been loving this spring. One thing that I have done over quarantine was experiment with not only my skincare habits, but my self care and all over body care. Which was so fun! I learned a lot, tried a lot of things, and of course….had a lot of fails. 😬 BUT! Today, I am so excited to be sharing three beauty buys that you will want to run and add to cart ASAP!
Olive & June
I started following What Kate Finds at the beginning of 2020 and felt an instant connection to her quirky love for fashion, her unapologetic way of being honest and transparent about what’s going on in the world, but also her nail game! Fun fact – I used to get my nails done every other week. I love the whole experience the salon gives you, but I also don’t have 2 hours to spend at a salon anymore. So I have been searching for the perfect manicure set that I can do at home that still offers the salon experience, just at home! Enter Olive & June and their manicure and their new pedicure set! The perfect beauty buy for spring!
The Olive & June manicure set includes all the essentials that you could need when doing an at home manicure. Featuring an eight step process complete with Mani-perfecting clean up brush, acetone-free polish remover pot, Straight-edge nail clipper, dual-grit nail file, a salon-quality nail buffer, the patented bottle handle the Poppy, a super glossy top coat, and the award-winning cuticle serum. All to help you perfect your at home mani with six shades that you pick for your box! PLUS, Olive & June offers a “learn” section where you can learn how to apply your perfect salon mani! I have been trying the Spring 2021 set, and my favorite colors have been the Lava and Angelfish for the perfect pop! This beauty buy for spring starts at $80, but allows you to add customer favorites as an exclusive discount.
Flamingo Wax and Shave
Let’s be real. Many of us skipped, ignored, or just said let it grow during quarantine when it comes to shaving and waxing. When it was safe to do so, I started up with an amazing esthetician to help me with my brows, but over quarantine, I experimented with waxing myself. Cue the GASPS from the crowd because I am sure ALL OF US have had a traumatic self waxing experience that makes us cringe when we think of doing it again. However, I found a wax strip that doesn’t include heating, warming, applying wax to strips then your body, and overall is not an invasive and uncomfortable experience! Bring in the Flamingo wax strips and shaving tools as the perfect beauty buy for spring.
Flamingo Wax strips are the first waxing strips that I have tried that offers an easy to understand and use guide to help you wax at home. From an online learning how to wax guide, to after care tools and products to ensure a safer and gentler rip pre and post wax, Flamingo is my go to! I have personally been using their body wax kit and their pubic hair wax kit to stay smooth into spring. When it comes to waxing your crotch though, I didn’t nail it till the third time. Partially because I think the hair was softer after a few rips, and able to be waxed off easier than the first time! When I am not waxing though, I love using the Flamingo shave set. It helps leave the areas I shave extra smooth, exfoliated, and hydrated!
You can shop from their website directly, or add a wax kit to your next target pickup order, making this the perfect beauty buy for spring!
Salted Sanctuary Soap
My love for Salted Sanctuary Soap has only grown over quarantine, and it’s been so helpful for healing my acne and making my skin silky smooth! One of the super cool things about Salted Sanctuary Soap is that most of the ingredients are grown right in the makers own garden! Meaning you’re getting high quality and organic ingredients in all of their products. Plus, I am a sucker for the minimal packaging so theres little waste with each bar of soap!
I have loved using the rose and clay sensitive skin facial bar for cleansing my skin first thing when I cleanse at night. It’s the perfect gentle cleanser that gently cleans all the makeup off my skin before I dive in with the rest of my routine! Another favorite of mine is the Pumpkin Spice body sugar scrub, which I know might seem like a fall flavor, but oh my gosh it’s such a dreamy scent I have been using it all season long! That paired with the seasonal soap bars is the perfect combination for every shower! Want to check out their selection of soaps and scrubs? You can shop at La Di Da on the square or online!
