The Beauty Edit, January: Winter Essentials


A round up of this month’s favorite beauty, skincare, and wellness products!

In Flight: My Carry On Essentials

HUM Nutrition 

A few months ago I was sent Hum Nutrition’s Vitamin C gummies (Glow Sweet Glow) in a press package, and I was intrigued by the brand. I started looking into their other supplements and really wanted to try them, but never purchased. Luckily, I was sent another press package with Flatter Me, Daily Cleanse, and Gut Instinct. The reviews were all amazing, so I started taking them towards the end of December. I have such an issue with being consistent with things, but I’m really trying to be consistent so that I can hopefully see a difference.

If you’ve ever taken HUM supplements, would LOVE to know your experience!

Murad City Skin Products

I promised an update on these blue light/environmental defense products. So far, I’m really loving them. I add the City Skin overnight detox moisturizer before my sleep mask every night. It goes on so smooth and really prevents dry skin. The fact that it also helps detox your skin from blue light and other pollutants is an AMAZING benefit!

In the morning, I put on my City Skin SPF. It’s the only thing I wear, and it goes on super light and feels really great on my skin. It’s great for sensitive skin. My skin also runs on the dry side, and this SPF blends in really easily.

Skin Laundry

I first tried Skin Laundry last year, and really loved it. I stopped going because it’s not exactly super affordable. In September, I noticed small, annoying break outs on my chin. I haven’t had time for full blown facials, so I decided to go back to Skin Laundry. I’m all about efficient, so this 15 minutes laser and light facial is perfect for my lifestyle. Again, I decided that I need to be more consistent when it comes to my skincare, so that I could hopefully avoid the breakouts, I joined the Laundry Club and decided to go to Skin Laundry every two weeks to keep my skin extra clean! I often add the Hydroboost (which is an insanely hydrating serum) to protect my skin from the winter cold here in the city.

And there you have it — January’s beauty favorites! I would LOVE to hear about the products you’re loving this month. Leave a comment below!
