I am a major fan of Trader Joe's, but then again, who isn't? They offer an array of groceries, alcohol, cleaning solutions, and yes, beauty - at amazing price points. Even better, everything is truly delicious, and works! To say I am obsessed would be an understatement.
My latest TJ crush is their beauty department. It is humble, yet power-packed with holy grail level products - perfect for stocking stuffers or Secret Santa gift exchanges!
Some of my current favorites are, the Rose Water Facial Toner, Rich Hydrating Face Sheet Mask, Macaron Soap Set and their Cedar Balsam Scented Candle, for bath time.
ROSE WATER FACIAL TONER - $3.99
This facial mist has changed my skin, for the better. I started using it as a toner, morning and night, a few months back. I am on my 3rd bottle, and I am never looking back. The few hormonal breakouts I was still experiencing diminished, and my skin has become brighter, clearer, and more hydrated - leaving my skin with a supple, youthful bounce.
At under $4, you really can't go wrong. This toner is more effective than toners that cost 20X the price! Yes, you better believe it. Run, don't walk to your nearest TJ's.
WHAT I DO
Morning + Night | You Can Use as Frequently as Desired*
*Spritz product into palm of hand, press into face.*
RICH HYDRATING FACE SHEET MASK - $1.99
When I saw the price of this bad boy, I thought it was too good to be true - but, it's TJ's, so, I should have known better. This mask is bloody amazing! After first use, I noticed a significant improvement in my skin. The results were immediate, and amplified over night - as I slept with the remaining serum on my face. My pores were smaller, my tone was more even, and my face was moisturized - without feeling greasy. The mask imparted a delightful glow, and made my skin the perfect canvas for makeup application. To boot - it even cleared a stubborn pimple I had - now that's a mask I can get behind!
Stock up fast, as they go quickly - well, at least at my local TJ's.
WHAT I DO
Once or Twice a Week | You Can Use as Frequently as Desired*
*Place mask on cleansed face. Let sit for 10-15 minutes. Remove. Press remaining serum into skin. Best results when used prior to bed.*
MACARON SOAP SET - $4.99
This darling soap set smells fantastic, and is thee cutest little stocking stuffer or present! The set comes with three scents, Lavender Honey, Raspberry, and Mint. The Lavender Honey has more of a manly smell - a little musky, if you will. Bobby has taken this one over in the shower, and is loving it. We both have noticed a boost is moisture levels, resulting in less dry, irritated winter skin. Formulated with gentle vegetable glycerin and coconut-derived surfactants, these soaps are sure to delight men and women alike, with all skin types.
WHAT I DO
*Lather. Rinse. Repeat.*
CEDAR BALSAM SCENTED CANDLE - $3.99
This candle has been our go-to scent this holiday season. It has a refreshing cedar fragrance, sans the cleaning product aroma that usually plagues winter infused candles. Bobby and I have been loving lighting this gem during our Sunday night movie and bath time. It relaxes, invigorates, and soothes the senses.
We will definitely be lighting a few of these today, as we decorate our Christmas tree.
Each candle lasts about 5-6 uses.
WHAT WE DO
Bath or Movie Time
*Light candle and enjoy the fabulous aroma*
*DISCLAIMER* All products can be purchased at your local Trader Joe's. You can also purchase these goodies on sites such as ebay and Amazon - but, beware, you will pay two to three times the price.*
