Best discovery of the last 6 months?

I always like hearing of other people’s product successes, so I thought I’d ask: What has been your best beauty product discovery of the last 6 months? 

 

Mine has been BECCA - Anti-Fatigue Under Eye Primer:A2495B22-105E-468D-A379-5BB52B80C29E.jpegUpon first application, I honestly thought it had done nothing. I shrugged, continued on with my usual morning makeup routine, and went about my day. Later in the day, however, I did a double take when I looked in a mirror and saw how improved my under eye area looked! After a couple weeks of daily use, a coworker even commented that I looked younger. Who doesn’t want to hear that once in a while 😁

Re: RE: Best discovery of the last 6 months?

@Meghudecheck I hear you 😊 I actually use a custom concoction of several foundations and BB cream mixed together to deal with all my skin’s quirks and oddball shade. Sounds crazy but it actually works amazingly well. I got the idea from watching Safiya Nygaard’s channel lol...

 

So, congratulations on finding your Laura Mercier foundation soulmate!! 😁

RE: Best discovery of the last 6 months?

Ooooo mine are the Glow Recipe watermelon sleeping mask, the lotion and It Cosmetics your skin but better CC😁

RE: Best discovery of the last 6 months?

This is the closest Canada will get to Glow Recipe being readily available at the moment 😂 saw this at winners in Vaughan mills Toronto

Re: RE: Best discovery of the last 6 months?

What a good find @mmmiu! I’m going to check out winners this week, I would be elated to find these!

Re: RE: Best discovery of the last 6 months?

@mmmiu I think I need to take a trip to Winners to see if mine has a magical unicorn a.k.a. the watermelon mask 😂

Re: RE: Best discovery of the last 6 months?

@mmmiu It’s a step in the right direction!

Re: RE: Best discovery of the last 6 months?

@mmmiu I really hope Sephora Canada starts offering the watermelon mask soon!!   

 

As for the IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream, I’ve been eyeing that for quite a while. Thanks for mentioning it, and thanks for your input as well, @Shosh85 😊

RE: Re: RE: Best discovery of the last 6 months?

Right!? Lol I've already made two shopping trips across the border this year and it's always on my list... Need my backups 😁😁😁

Re: RE: Best discovery of the last 6 months?

@mmmiu I looove the IT CC cream! It feels so light and comfortable! I love that it doesn’t dry me out and gives a nice, natural looking glow! 🙌

Re: RE: Best discovery of the last 6 months?

@mmmiu@Shosh85 same it's my everyday go to (heh).  I'm going to try the illumination CC tomorrow

Re: Best discovery of the last 6 months?

I’ve been thinking about this the last couple of days, and a few of the products I’ve recently started using I’ve been impressed with are Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Cleanser, Ole Henriksen Banana Bright Eye Creme, and Too Faced Primed and Peachy.

 

I like the cleanser because it doesn’t dry out my skin at all (I’ve had issues with changing skin and it seems every cleanser dries it out in some capacity), and it provides a gentle chemical exfoliation every time I use it. The eye cream just feels really nice! It smells good too. I am prone to watery and irritated eyes, especially in the summer, and from what I can tell, this doesn’t contribute to it. I’ve used other eye creams that do. Finally, the primer simply works well. It does it’s job. Since the weather’s been heating up, it’s prevented me from getting super shiny. That’s what I need a good matte primer to do. Keep the shine at bay, while playing well with my makeup and skincare and not being drying. 

Re: Best discovery of the last 6 months?

@alexasteph I really like Ole Henriksen Banana Bright Eye Crème, too. I’ve been using it for months and the jar is still practically full because a little goes so far!

 

I have a sample of Too Faced Primed and Peachy. I’ll have to try it out soon! 😊

Re: Best discovery of the last 6 months?

I’ve got another product to add as of last night! I tried Lancôme Teint Idole Camouflage Ultra Wear High Coverage Corrector in shade yellow and was truly amazed! 😲

If you have brown hyperpigmentation, this makes it completely vanish with very little effort. It dries down perfectly and disappears the moment you apply foundation over top.  

 

I had tried the green shade and it worked well, too, but for redness. I didn’t know that yellow would target my brown hyperpigmentation so well in comparison! 

 

If you want to read more about my experience with it, check out the review I wrote about it 😊

Re: Best discovery of the last 6 months?

Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peels are amazing! It makes my skin sooo soft, smooth and bright without any irritation! It also helps to clear up acne/blemishes. They are a holy grail skincare product for me and will probably continue to use these forever now!!!👌

Re: Best discovery of the last 6 months?

@Shosh85 Do you have sensitive skin? I do so I’m very cautious about using any kind of peel because it can cause quite the flare-up for me.

 

I’ve been on a mini-quest to find a gentle peel but I’m proceeding with great caution because my skin is already about 80% where I want it and I don’t want a giant backward slide 😅

Re: Best discovery of the last 6 months?

@PinkEvergreen Yes, I have sensitive skin and I was actually surprised these didn’t irritate me!! These were sitting around for a long time because I was hesitant to try them! @itsfi went through the same thing– she has sensitive skin as well and it didn’t irritate her either! 👌

Re: Best discovery of the last 6 months?

@Shosh85 Nice!! It’s going on my loves list riiiight now 😁 Thanks!!

Re: Best discovery of the last 6 months?

@Shosh85 @itsfi I’m checking these out right now and I’m not sure which ones to get. There are a few kinds to choose from. Did you use the Universal Daily Peel ones? 

Re: Best discovery of the last 6 months?

@PinkEvergreen I use the same Extra Strength ones displayed below. Thanks so much for sharing, @itsfi!  🙌🤗

Re: Best discovery of the last 6 months?

@PinkEvergreen, I have the Extra Strength Daily Peel pads.  I was going to start with the ones for sensitive skin but others here mentioned the extra strength ones should be fine since I had been using actives already - before moving to the DDG extra strength peel pads, I used the First Aid Beauty Radiance Pads almost every day; on days I didn't use those, I'd use mask or treatments that contained AHA/BHA in them. The extra strength pads have been fine for my sensitive skin - no breakouts or irritation -  my cheeks were a little dry after the first use, but not anymore; I don't use them everyday, but not because they are too strong, but more because I use other products with actives in them on other days. 

 

Is there a Sephora store near you?  If so, you might want to see if the store still has some of the DDG peel pads that were point perks, or you could ask them for a couple of packets of the peel pads to sample.

 

Thanks for the tag @Shosh85!

Re: Best discovery of the last 6 months?

@itsfi Thanks for your reply! It just so happens that I have some of the extra-strength ones in my stash. I got them as a sample ages ago but was too afraid to use them 😅 I’ll try one today!
