Sharing is Caring! ❤️

When it comes to beauty products, I always reply on beauty experts for what’s new and what actually works. Beauty experts swear by these 10 holy grail beauty products and so do I! Be sure to check them out, they are staples in my beauty arsenal!

10 Holy Grail Beauty Products

First, on my list has to be 

1 – Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water – I discovered this product earlier this year and use it daily. It deep cleans your makeup from your face and eyes so easily and without an oily residue. No burning, no fog, and super cleaning ability. They have two types, one for waterproof makeup and the other is designed for non-waterproof makeup. Of course, I always purchase the waterproof version. I have used the pink one as well which I found milder. 

About the product
  • All-in-1 cleanser and makeup remover cleanses, removes makeup and refreshes skin
  • Oil-free, alcohol-free, fragrance-free
  • Micelle technology attracts dirt, oil, and makeup like a magnet without harsh rubbing
  • All skin types, even sensitive

My lashes always look incredible after I apply this mascara and no bleeding during the day – it stays put!

3 – Colorescience Sunforgettable Mineral SPF 50 Sunscreen Brush – Highly recommended by dermatologists, this sunscreen is so easy to use. This broad spectrum brush-on sunscreen makes protecting your skin easily, 365 days a year. Perfectly portable and easy to reapply, it offers powerful SPF 50 uva/UVB protection with sheer, natural-looking coverage.

I’ve driven it home on my blog how important it is to wear sunscreen daily and all year-long. This product makes it so easy to apply and helps keep your makeup in place too! It’s a win-win!

4 – CeraVe PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion – This OTC facial moisturizer can compete with any high-end brand on the market. CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion helps repair damaged skin and maintain the skin’s natural protective function with ingredients not commonly found in other moisturizers.  Its patented multivesicular emulsion (MVE) technology releases theses ingredients over time, penetrating deep into the skin to hydrate and nourish. I love using it and so does my husband. It’s so easy for him to use one pump after shaving and be done.

5 – Jeffree Star LipColor in ANDROGYNY – Jeffree Star made a huge hit with this lipstick formulation. Androgyny is one of my favorite colors. Their liquid lipstick goes on opaque, dries completely matte and stays on for hours! This product is 100% vegan & cruelty-free!  The reviews are incredible. No smudging, no budging – it stays put, and I love that when it comes to a good lippy product. He offers a wide range of beautiful colors too!

7 – Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Skin Cream Protectant – Eight-hour cream was created more than seventy years ago, in 1930, by Miss Arden herself and was the first ever cosmetic product to bear the Elizabeth Arden name. Since its début, eight-hour cream has escalated to near cult status. Eight Hour Cream is the legendary, award-winning skin protectant that does more than soothe sun-burned skin, rehydrate chapped lips, and heal rough elbows and calluses. It’s also the secret that makeup artists all over the world use for keeping legs, lips and eyelids shiny; eyebrows in place; and cuticles perfectly manicured. There are an infinite number of ways to use this classic cream.

10 – Beauty Blender – Of course, I had to add this cult classic. My Beauty Blender gets used daily. It’s by far the best application and blending tool on the market. I’ve tried dupes and they come close, but I always go back to my Beauty Blender and for good reason. It’s a six-time Allure Best of Beauty winner! You voted – we listen! This cream is one of my top ten Holy Grail Beauty Products! 

About the product
  • The unique edgeless shape and exclusive material available only with beauty blender ensure impeccable, streak-free application with minimum product waste. Use with foundations, powders and any other complexion product.
  • Beautyblender features an open cell structure that fills with small amounts of water when wet. This allows the sponge to be “full” so that the makeup product sits on top of the sponge rather than being absorbed, allowing you to use less product every time. When wet, beauty blender doubles in size and becomes even softer, returning to its original size when it air dries. Handcrafted in the USA.
  • Beautyblender has chosen to use safe, water-soluble dyes that do not harm the environment and will maintain the integrity of their proprietary foam. For this reason, you may notice some colorrunofff or wash away the first time you wet beauty blender. This is normal and will disappear after you have cleansed the product several times. Please note: the color will not transfer onto the face or clothing.
  • This product is a six-time Allure Best of Beauty award winner.
  • The award-winning, non-disposable, high-definition cosmetic sponge applicator in pink.

    Carolann xo

  3. I’ve been branching out from my same old makeup products and I love getting recommendations. I’m putting these on my shopping list.

  4. I do love CeraVe products. I use the face soap and the moisturizer. Thanks for the great new tips on the other products. I am always interested in a great mascara!

  5. I just love the Micellar Cleansing Water and use it every night and morning. I’ll be checking out your other suggestions. Thanks.

  6. Such an informative post. Is your lipstick choice, available at the drugstore or at a department store? I love Mac’s line of lipstick that stayed on all day and night. They, unfortunately, discountinued it! I’m so bummed!!!

  7. I love learning about new beauty products and you always find the best stuff! I will definitely be trying some of these.

  8. Hi Leanne, Skincare products are by far my favorites! My skin has never looked or felt better because of them. If you are going to try anything on that list, try the Ultra Repair Cream. It’s wonderful! Have a great day!

  9. Hi Mary, Oh, yes. I use Micellar every day! It’s the best for removing every drop of makeup and doesn’t leave that nasty fog in your eyes. You picked a great one, Mary!

  10. Hi Janine! Thank you! I just love the lipstick. The colors are quite stunning. Yes, MAC’s line is equally amazing. The range of colors is mind-blowing. I think I have every one of them. lol. Awwww, what was the name of the color they discontinued? I hate that!

  11. Thanks for all the tips, but frankly, it is unacceptable for any cosmetic/ pharmaceutical company not to mention on the label if their product was “animal tested.” I appreciate a “cruelty free label” and feel that it should be an obligation by law to do so. I believe that in 2017 there has been sufficient data gathered that could be used worldwide and thus unecessary to hurt an animal just to be beautiful??? Superficial, and so easy to overlook.
    Will definitely look into the lipstick that you mentioned and pass it on to many friends like minded!!!

  12. If it’s Jeffery Stars lipstick this is what they say on their site:
    Yes, our whole line is cruelty-free! Makeup is for humans, not animals. We have also researched our manufacturers and know 100% they don’t affiliate or get ingredients from places that are not cruelty-free!
    That’s why I always research things before making assumptions.
    thank you,
