Hi everyone! I have a super fun Label Me Pretty post to share with you all today that I have been meaning to get written forever. While I am not a huge make-up girl (as much as I try to be) there are a few tried and true beauty products that I just adore, and have stood the test of time. So I wanted to share with you my top five all time favorite beauty products!

1. Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel
I want to start off by clearly saying I love the GEL moisturizer – not the lotion, which has pretty much identical packaging.
With that out of the way, oh my gosh you guys this moisturizer is everything! I have pretty much used this as my daily facial moisturizer since high school. I have found that a single pump is enough to moisturize my entire face, so these bottles last forever. The lightweight formula feels so smooth when applying it, and it sinks right into the skin, leaving my face soft and smooth with no sticky oily residue (which is super important to me!).
2. EOS Lip Balm
Ok, I will admit that the only reason I initially loved this product was for it’s cute packaging. I mean it’s lip balm that comes in colorful little balls, what’s not to love?! And while that’s still one of my favorite parts of this product, I’ve really grown to love these lip balms for what they actually are. Now I own almost every ‘flavor’ that exists, and have them stashed all over my apartment.
I feel like these are among the few lip balms that I have tried that actually sink into your lips to moisturize them over time, rather than just sitting on top of your lips until it gets rubbed off. The different scents in each color is also very nice, my current favorite being coconut milk <3.
3. Essie Nail Polish
These have been my go to nail polishes for a couple years now. I don’t paint my nails all that often, but when I do I usually reach for an Essie polish. I mean, you really just can’t beat the adorable colors! I will say my one annoyance with these polishes is I have found that even with a base coat I have to apply 2-3 coats to get a full even color. But since I’m not an all-the-time-nail-polish-er, I’m willing to put in the extra effort for the pretty colors whenever I do paint my nails.
4. Burt’s Bees Milk & Honey Body Lotion
Next up is my all time favorite body lotion. Melissa actually introduced me to this lotion, and I love using it as a daily hand cream. The formula is super thick and creamy, it feels so luxurious putting it on, and my hands just soak it right up! Just like my face moisturizer, it is super important to me that my lotions don’t leave any sort of oily layer after I apply it, that just drives me crazy and makes me feel all sticky and gross. This lotion just soaks right into my skin, leaving it so soft and silky.
Oh! And I almost forgot to mention the scent! It is heavenly. That is literally the only way I can think to describe it. I’m not normally a huge fan of ‘honey scented’ products, but this lotion is possibly one of my favorite smells of all time. Seriously if I could just carry a bottle around with me to smell all the time without getting judged, I would. It’s that good.
Finally, the last beauty favorite I’m going to share with you all today is my tweezers. I have had these bad boys for over 10 years, and I am absolutely over the moon crazy in love with them. No other tweezers have ever compared in my experience. I’ve even tried other Tweezerman brand tweezers, and they just weren’t the same.
The combination of the body length for grip, the steel slanted tip (which decreases slipping when grabbing a hair, which reduces pain from unsuccessful plucks) and pretty pink design makes for a perfect pair of tweezers. You can find an updated version of my tweezers (I believe the only changes have been cosmetic) here. Your brows will thank you.
And that finishes up all my absolute all time favorite beauty supplies! I hope I could introduce you to a few new products to test out for yourself. Shout out your holy grail make-up tools or products in the comments below so we can all test those out too! Happy pampering 😉
