The Beauty Edit: Krisztina's December Beauty Faves

Updated: Jan 3

Welcome to another roundup of some of my recent favorite beauty products. This past month was full of glam and glitter for the holidays, especially on Instagram. Though behind the scenes, I was all about the skincare. With less sleep and more work, as it often is during the holiday rush, I needed to keep my skin in tip top shape for vlogs and photo shoots.

The L'BRI PURE n' NATURAL Hydrating Antioxidant Face Mist kept me photo-ready with a hefty dose of soothing, firming, and antioxidant-rich hydration that I could mist on throughout the day as often as needed. Botanical extracts of aloe and chamomile soothe the skin while ingredients like coconut oil, watermelon extract, and sodium hyaluronate deeply hydrate for a more plump and dewy complexion. Vitamins A and E and antioxidant-rich green tea provide protection against pollutants and aging, as peptides and collagen help improve skin's firmness and elasticity.

In addition to the hydrating and anti-aging benefits, I love that this facial mist has an uplifting scent from various citrus extracts, and I especially love that it incorporates ginger root extract. The multiple skincare benefits of ginger include toning and antioxidant properties that can improve the appearance of scars and uneven skin tone and can improve skin's elasticity.

As a full-time beauty editor, I've tried so many wonderful facial mists, but I've been extra impressed by this L'BRI face mist with its effective all-in-one formula.

At the end of the day or after a photo shoot, I always depend on a good cleansing balm or cleansing oil to really break down and remove all of my makeup. I've recently tried the NAMI NATURALE Goodbye and Hello Cleansing Oil, and just like everything else I've tried from NAMI NATURALE, I loved it! Intended to be used with the hot oil cleansing method it creates such a luxurious skincare routine. You can even turn it into a longer spa-like experience by laying down as you slowly massage the oil to help it cleanse more deeply, before you place a warm towel over your face to help soften pores and release impurities.

Made with organic camellia, jojoba oil and watermelon oil, it melts away makeup without stripping the skin’s natural oils. Essential oils of Ylang Ylang and Grapefruit provide a sweet and relaxing natural scent. Although I absolutely love the rich and nourishing face oil by NAMI NATURALE too, I also love a great multi-tasking product. Whenever I'm in a rush, or simply too tired at the end of the day, this cleansing oil can also double as a moisturizing face oil.

One of my other self-care favorites from this past month was in my Petit Vour Cruelty-Free Beauty Box. I'm always happy with my Petit Vour subscription box, though I was especially pleased with it this time. It came with a nourishing hemp seed oil, a beautiful lip and cheek stain, a lip balm, and a ritual fragrance oil.

The HIGHBORN Defume Anointing Oil in Palo Santo and Sandalwood has a light yet very grounding scent that is such a great way to turn any beauty routine or meditation session into a relaxing energy-cleansing ritual. Simply breathe it in, and as you slowly exhale, release any negative energy from the day for a more relaxed and positive self care experience. I do hope you're having a very relaxed and positive new year so far.
