November Monthly Must-Haves

My Monthly Must-Haves series is a monthly post I plan to compile that will contain reviews and information about products I am loving each month.  This is my first Monthly Must-Haves post so please let me know what you think 🙂

1. Hyaluronic Acid

I first discovered this stuff after reading Body Love by Kelly Leveque.  She recommends adding it to your daily skincare routine.  Hyaluronic acid improves skin texture and brightness with intense moisture and balance.  It is also great for anti-aging!  I have been using hyaluronic acid for about three months and have noticed my skin has been less greasy and has gotten smoother.  I use 2-3 drops in the morning and at night on my face and neck.

My acne has also improved a little bit, but I am not sure if that is because of the Hyaluronic Acid or because I have cut back on consuming dairy products.  This product is Vegan, Paraben-free, oil-free, no dyes, no fragrances or fillers which always makes me feel good about using it twice a day.  Give it a try!

2. Benefit Gimme Brow Volumizing Brow Gel

I use Benefit Gimme Brow Volumizing Brow Gel every day because it is quick and easy to use.  I bought 05 Deep in the 0.1oz tube.   I really love how this product makes my eyebrows look thicker especially on the outside of my eyebrows where the hair is thinner!     

I hope these side by side comparisons help you decide if you think Benefit Gimme Brow Volumizing Brow Gel is the product for you! I have been using the same little 0.1oz tube for about five months.   I think this product is worth it!

I plan to do more beauty comparisons and reviews in the future because when I am deciding which beauty products to use, I think it is so helpful to see real, side by side comparison pictures.  I am a real person just trying to find affordable beauty products that work!

3. Tassel Earrings

I got these earrings in white for a wedding and I LOVE them!  They look exactly like they do in the picture on Amazon and are so affordable!

The backs are very secure.  They stayed on even through three hours straight of dancing at my friend’s wedding 🙂  I am considering getting the cream pink ones as well!  Here are a few pictures of me wearing them:

 4. Gel Nail Polish Color

020 nail color from the CLAVUZ Gel Nail Polish Set is perfect for the Fall! CLAVUZ only names their gel nail polish colors with numbers, not names which is no fun at all, but I really love this grayish taupe color for these fall days:

This is a gel nail polish color is purchased along with five other beautiful colors! Check out my DIY Gel Manicure post where I will show you exactly how you can get the perfect at home gel manicure!

  1. YAY! I love this must haves list. I can’t wait to try them all, but the brow gel (God help my thin blonde brows) and nail polish are on the priority list for sure!

      I LOVE the brow gel! My eyebrows are finally growing in a little better, but the gel helps so much 🙂
