It’s here, we are officially 3 weeks away from getting married! Ahhh! Yes, it’s panic mode! Completely panic! I am so excited to get married to Adrien, but let’s face it, the to do list for an upcoming wedding never ends. Every time I scratch off one thing, it seems like 3 more tasks get added. And, let’s be real, what do the guys do anyways right. They help pick out their bowtie and suit, occasionally the music and or food, and that’s really about it. We are doing it all ladies! So between my Spring Wedding Season and the Wedding Planning, I have been trying out some new beauty products over the past year to get ready for the big day! Once thing I love is the BirchBox, it’s amazing! It’s a great way to try out new products without having to buy the entire bottle up front. What if you buy a moisturizer and you hate it, this is the greatest way to get around that. I highly recommend it!
Aside from that, these are my favorite tricks of the trade to help get me looking my best for the upcoming day.
1. Clarins Double Serum, AMAZING! Not to mention, it’s won tons of beauty awards!
2. Clarins One Step Gentle Exfoliation Cleanser, it smells yummy too.
3. Golden Glow Booster, who doesn’t want to look a little sunkissed right.
4. Body Lift Cellulite Control, what can I say, I thought I would give it a try ( I dislike bikini season)
5. R.O.C Eye Cream (my dermatologist recommended it)
6. Burts Bees Intense Hydration Mask
7. Korres Lip Butter
8. Tarte Lipsurgence Lip Tent (just for fun)
I am not partial to any one brand over the other in beauty products. I am also one of those gals who believes that sometimes the Walgreens brand might work just as good as Dior, but who knows really. I started to pay attention to products when we went to France in December. Everytime I looked around the French women were looking fabulous and had zero wrinkles! I thought to myself, I need to get whatever they use. So I asked all of Adrien’s cousins and they all recommended either Clarins or Nivea. We don’t have too many Nivea products in the U.S. so I thought I would give Clarins a try and they haven’t disappointed me yet.
However, the Eye Cream will always be on my lookout. My dermatologist recommended the Retinal Eye Cream which I really like, but I am really only noticing a difference on one eye, which is never any good. Aside from that, I try and use the Hydration mask a few times a week and the lip butter is great to put on at night before bed.
I really tried to do a lot of research on products and what to do before a big day, and I am trying not to use too many products because I don’t want to overkill my face and have the reverse effect. Wedding planning takes a toll on you, it’s challenging at times and can be exhausting. So at the end of the day I just wanted to primp a little bit more than I usually do and get myself a few extra special products for the wedding. I will have so much more to share once we get through the Wedding, but for now, these are my favorite pre-wedding products.
