Save Time With One Step Daily Facials

Save Time With One Step Daily Facials

beauty brite sponsored

I tried my first anti-aging product when I was in my late 20s, around the time I started Beauty Brite. An Olay anti-wrinkle cream was the first product I ever tried. I really believe that without my blog, I would have never been able to try as many brands and products. I also depend on fellow bloggers to introduce me to products.

Help Yourself To Healthy Happy Skin

 Help Yourself To Healthy Happy Skin-Curel Hydratherapy Wet Skin Moisturizer-Taitu's Botanicals Cherry Blossom Body Care

Beauty Brite Disclosure

 

When it comes to makeup and skincare, brands always have hits and misses. I have to say, there is one skincare brand that never fails to disappoint and that’s Curél. While my face is combination oily, my skin is always pretty dry. The only brand to help has been Curél. Another new body care brand that I’ve found recently, that I’m really very impressed with is Taitu’s Botanicals. Their wonderful scents and healthy skin ingredients make for a great combination to address skin concerns while feeling like you’re doing something luxurious for yourself…. [read more]

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Sumer is quickly approaching and it’s time to bust out the best of the best. The products that are going to step up and last during the hot, summer months. I love being able to test new beauty products, but how many of them can really handle a Chicago summer heatwave? I’ve been testing out a few products from Cherry Blooms to see how they could potential hold up.

Bathe In Luxury With These Floridian Bath Salts

The Spice Lab Bath Salts

Beauty Brite Disclosure

For me, a bath has always been a time for luxury, decadence, and relaxation. It’s a time to soak, to reflect, and to absorb–something that becomes all the more relevant when said bath water has extra benefits and ingredients within it! Bath salts are one particularly lovely way to enhance your bathing experience, and the Florida-based company Spice Labs has (among other things) an entire plethora of pure and beneficial salts, packaged in large and beautiful bottles to boot!

I love being able to try products from brands I’m not familiar with and hopefully shine a spotlight on smaller companies people don’t know about… but should! Could Beauty Junkees be one of those brands?… [read more]

Hot Weather Essentials

 Hot Weather Essentials

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Memorial Day has come and gone and with it the unofficial start of summer. Of course, if you live where I do, the melting from high temps in the 90s started about a month ago.  Summer doesn’t just bring the heat, it also brings the humidity. This means having fun in the sun requires a lot more work on my hair and skin. Luckily, I’ve discovered some new hot weather essentials to help me feel refreshed and ready to go.

Will This Brand Make It Into Our Current Beauty Routine? - Gabriel Cosmetics Illusion Lipstick, Liquid Radiance, Aura Palette

Beauty Brite Disclosure

As a beauty blogger I love having the opportunity to test out brands that I’m not familiar with. I’ve found some holy grail items this way! One of those is the gluten-free and organic brand, Gabriel Cosmetics. This affordable brand offers a wide range of products in colors that will work with most skin tones. I was tested out three products: a lipstick, liquid radiance, and signature palette. The main question is, will these products make it into my current beauty rotation?

Fresh and Sparkling Cruelty-Free Makeup

Fresh and Sparkling Cruelty-Free Makeup

 

Beauty Brite Disclosure

As a makeup user, I’ve become familiar with plenty of brands–but as any simple trip to Sephora or Ulta will tell you, there are always more to find and explore! One brand that I’ve recently come across is Mally Beauty, a line whose creator has been a professional makeup artist for years (and worked with the likes of Jennifer Lopez). Mally–the founder and namesake of the brand–promises that her brand is cruelty-free and “high-performance” for women on the go (of which there are many!).

Fresh And Feminine Beauty Products For Summer

Fresh And Feminine Beauty Products For Summer-GUESS 1981-TULA Hydrating Day & Night Cream-C.O. Bigelow Deluxe Cleanser

Beauty Brite Disclosure

A great perfume, cleanser or face cream is the perfect little luxury that women can treat themselves to as the warmer weather takes over this summer. With all the responsibilities we take on, a little bit of pampering is a great way to take a time out and do a small thing just for us.

I know, everything else is higher on the totem pole than ourselves. I get it. I’m in that frame of mind more often than I like to be. But, never forget that nothing gets done without women forging our way through the day, directing the schedules and driving the kids and preparing the food, etc. for those around us. We deserve a break, too, a small moment in time to do something nice for ourselves…. [read more]
