Beauty finds

The happiest shopping splurges are for beauty products. And these products look and feel like it with their minimal packaging and effective formulas, but... they aren't splurges at all! 

1. The Ordinary Niacimide 10% + Zinc 1%

I have been using for two weeks as part of my nighttime routine and the serum is doing its job! After a few days of purging all the stuff stuck deep in my face, my skin is smoother with less bumps, zits and inflammation, all without the drying effects of retinol.

$5.90 (YAS)

2. The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil

Not an big fan of face oil during the warmer months as I hate the feeling of greasiness. But this will be a staple once the temperatures drop to freezing and my face will start crying for intense moisture. Smells so wonderful too - like a fresh granny hehe.

$9.80 (Can even Trader Joe's beat this?)

So many other products to try from this ITG Top Shelf worthy line.

3. TONYMOLY Egg Pore Blackhead Steam Balm

You can literally feel this dissolving gunk from your skin! It doesn't burn, it just gets very warm once you spread it on your face. When you wash it off after a couple of minutes, your face feels fresh but not tight or dry. The egg shaped packaging is a little strange, but at it's all white and matte.

$17.00 (works way better than GLAMGLOW, and you need much less product)
