Could these
be your new must-haves?

Not all products are created equally. I have done a ton of research on what’s in our beauty products and swear by the book No More Dirty Looks, which breaks down the truth behind what’s really in our products. I’ve scoured the globe, tried everything out and raided my beauty pantry to bring you the absolute best of the best!


Evolue day & night creamEvolue day & night cream

The bad news is it took me years to discover this miracle cream. The good news is it works on all skin types, is 100 percent natural and literally will get you compliments on your skin within days. Sweep this on in the morning and at night for a flawless finish and skin people will be talking about! (, $65)


I’ve learned that when it comes to skin care, less is more. Rather than clog your skin with every serum, cream and concoction out there, all you really need is one great moisturizer.

Ecostore Coconut & Vanilla BodywashEcostore Coconut & Vanilla Bodywash

I’ll admit it, I’ve spent way too much on luxury body washes trying to get taken away to a tropical oasis while in the shower. My search stopped when I found this ultra-luxurious bodywash. I love it because it has no nasty chemicals and it is gentle for sensitive skin yet smells amazing. The best part is that this fabulous body wash is under $5! FYI: I always keep this in my guest bathroom and have noticed after guests stay that it has gone missing! (, $5)

Bella B Silky Mama Foaming Hair StrengthenerBella B Silky Mama Foaming Hair Strengthener

I discovered this hair strengthener while I was pregnant but continued using it long after as it works for anyone who just wants thicker, fuller hair. This natural foaming hair strengthener can give all hair types the thickness everybody wants with added silk and shine. ( , $10)

Taken PerfumeTaken Perfume

This sultry smelling perfume sticks on you like a second skin. With amazing notes of deep vanilla, this perfume keeps you smelling sweet and sexy. Light enough for daytime but sassy enough for night, I get so many compliments on my signature scent. My favorite part is that it’s a roll on perfume, which is perfect for the busy girl on the go who just needs a dab. (, $54)

Sheila Stotts Removal BrushSheila Stotts Removal Brush

Extensions or no extensions, this brush is hands down the best for an easy and quick detangle and instant hair “pick me up.” Great for all hair types, this is the only brush you need to have because it does it all! Clear out the clutter from your hair drawer because you just found the treasure. (, $28)

Scott Barnes Body BlingScott Barnes Body Bling

Have you ever gone to put on a dress and realized that your legs were too pale to pull it off? Having a tan takes time, money and energy that most of us don’t have. I discovered this miracle product years ago and now I buy it in bulk. Scott Barnes, a celebrity makeup artist who’s worked on everyone from J.Lo to Jessica Simpson, originally created this product for photo shoots and music videos. Now you can get the J.Lo glow, too. I like to mix this product with lotion and rub it on my legs and arms for a beachy bronze. (, $42)

Buddha Nose Moisturizing Body OilBuddha Nose Moisturizing Body Oil

This body oil is one of my favorite moisturizers — it soothes your skin all day long. It is the perfect year-round solution to dry skin and not only leaves your body refreshed, but your mind as well. (, $32)

That's it — the cabinets are unlocked. Here’s to a beautiful you inside and out!
