Diva Approved Beauty

Diva Approved is Beauty Style this week, check it outttttttttt!

Some of my recent beauty faves around here, always love to share some things that I love!

1. Estee Lauder DayWear BB Cream

I was at Sephora getting some stuff recently and wanted to try on a BB cream to see if there was any particular brand I liked or if I liked it all. I fell in love with this one and I love the spf in it too! I put a little on after my moisturizer and top with a light powder some days, some days I don’t even need it!

BB cream is the bomb! I know there are tons of other brands out there too, but this is the one I fell in love with.

2. Loreal Smooth Intense Xtreme Straight Creme

I very much need a straightening cream with this wild hair over here and use one always. My favorite smoothing cream is bumble and bumble blow dry straight, but I found this one and decided to try it when I ran out of my other cream. This has been great and it is cheaper than my usual cream as well!

3. Josie Maran Argan Oil

Obsessed! Ever since I bought this due to my dry skin with pregnancy I have been using it daily! I use it every single night after I wash my face, I apply it, and my eye cream! LOVE! My skin I feel has been even smoother and of course dryness gone with this!

4. Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Pore Scrub

I shared that I bought this a few weeks ago on my blog and wanted to give you an update. LOVE it and it has been making my skin feel and look fabulous! I use this every morning with my clarasonic, I only use it once a day since I do have sensitive skin. My skin has not been breaking out at all and just looks great! I am very happy I tried this and it is working for me!

5. Maybelline Makeup Remover Wipes

As a neutrogena makeup wipe remover, I decided to venture and try these out for a whirl. I am loving them and they remove all of my makeup beautifully, even my mascara! My neutrogena wipes were great but I had to use a separate eye makeup remover with those. These I don’t!

6.  Urban Decay Naked Flushed Blush Set

In LOVE with this and I have not got my hands on it yet! This blush has got rave reviews on sephora and it was sold out when I went to go buy it! I am hoping it comes back to my store or I will just have to order online, it looks fabulous!

7. Bobbi Brown Pink Lily Lip Gloss

I love pink lips BUT not too bright clown pink lips, haha! This pink gloss is not too bright but still so pretty and pink! I love it and it is perfect for spring!

I swear by my Cetaphil face wash. I’ve been using it for years and it is very affordable!


2 Healthy Diva March 1, 2013 at 7:48 am

I used that before but it was not great on my skin! Glad it is for you!


3 Jessica February 28, 2013 at 6:07 pm

Love BB creams! I used to use one from Too Faced, but now I’m using the Loreal Youth Code BB cream. It’s amazing!


4 Healthy Diva March 1, 2013 at 7:48 am

I will have to note that the loreal one is great too!


5 Amanda @ . running with spoons. February 28, 2013 at 7:01 pm

Adore BB cream! I’ve never tried the one by Estee Lauder, but I’m really loving the one from Maybelline and Skin79. I love how light and moisturizing it is, and if I need a little bit of extra coverage, I just spot treat with some concealer. Non-cakiness for the win :D

And argan oil… omigoodness YES. I’ve been applying some to my face for a while as well and it’s worked wonders for me.


6 Sam @ Better With Sprinkles February 28, 2013 at 7:26 pm

i’ve been meaning to try BB cream, I’ll have to pick some up soon!

I think I have to look into argan oil…I’ve never heard of it. But my skin gets really dry, especially in the winter – so I’ll have to see if it helps.


7 Healthy Diva March 1, 2013 at 7:47 am

It has done wonders for me, I love it!


8 Ashley @ Life and Fitness February 28, 2013 at 7:27 pm

I am DEF. going to try the L’oreal straightening cream. I am always looking for ones once the weather gets warmer, because the humidity makes my hair crazy!
I always use the Neutrogena makeup wipes and haven’t found any others that work with sensitive skin. Did the Maybelline wipes sting your eyes because I’ve had that issue in the past with other brands?


9 Healthy Diva March 1, 2013 at 7:47 am

Nope does not sting my eyes at all!! :)


10 natalie @ will jog for food February 28, 2013 at 7:37 pm

I use Smashbox BB Cream and LOVE it!


11 Danica @ It's Progression February 28, 2013 at 7:41 pm

I have the Neutrogena Naturals lotion and I absolutely love it!


12 Healthy Diva March 1, 2013 at 7:48 am

A great line they have ;)


13 Liz (formerly VeggieGirl) February 28, 2013 at 7:51 pm

Great picks!! I really like the BB cream.


14 Brittany February 28, 2013 at 8:02 pm

I am all over that pore scrub. No foundation for me though, I am makeup lazy.


15 purelytwins February 28, 2013 at 8:53 pm

BB cream that we have been loving lately is from Jane Iredale , great stuff!!
we need to try that lip gloss, lips are one thing we seem to neglect ;)


16 jenna February 28, 2013 at 9:04 pm

i am OBSESSED with my BB cream. i just got it about a week ago. does wonders for the face!! mine is the maybelline, and i love it!!


17 Brittany @ Proteinandpumps.com February 28, 2013 at 10:08 pm

I am obsessed with Too Faced BB Cream!!! It’s the only brand I’ve tried though. That lip gloss color is so pretty!


18 Hannah @ CleanEatingVeggieGirl February 28, 2013 at 10:37 pm

That blush looks gorgeous! I am loving the natural colors :).

Make-up remover cloths are seriously lifesavers. I will have to try the Maybelline brand!


19 Hayley March 1, 2013 at 1:20 am

I just tried a BB cream for the first time too and LOVE IT! I tried the one by MAC.


20 Healthy Diva March 1, 2013 at 7:49 am

I bet it rocks! MAC has good makeup!


21 Angela @ Health's Angel March 1, 2013 at 9:45 am

I can’t live without my jojoba oil for my face especially during this harsh Pittsburgh winter! A lifesaver.


22 Danielle March 1, 2013 at 10:15 am

Lauder is good stuff! My best friend used to work for Lauder many moons ago, I miss the free samples I used to get! I have tried this BB cream, but don’t use a BB cream currently.

One beauty that I am currently loving is Chanel Mousse Douceur Rinse-Off Foaming Mousse Cleanser. I had a hard time finding a facial cleanser in the past that didn’t make my face breakout or dry out. This product hasn’t let me down since I started using it a year and a half ago. In fact, I use all Chanel facial care products – toner, ultra correction line repair day fluid, and ultra correction night cream.


23 Erin @ The Grass Skirt March 1, 2013 at 11:25 am

I love BB creams and have actually been using them for a few years. Before they were available in the states, I’d order them from Asia. I hear great things about the Smashbox one and am dying to try it soon!


24 Tara March 1, 2013 at 11:40 am

Thanks for the reviews! I have a Sephora and MAC GC that I need to use. I am not a big make up person, only wear eyeliner and eye shadow, but want to check out the BB creams. I am hoping its light enough (feel wise and look wise). I dont like face makeup, as it makes me feel suffocated!


25 Maddie March 1, 2013 at 1:42 pm

Katie which eye cream do you use?


26 Chelsa March 3, 2013 at 9:52 am

That was the last BB creme that I had and I really liked it too. Currently I’m using the Diorskin nude bb creme.On days that I need extra sun protection I use Kate Somerville daily deflector and then the bb creme on top. Both great products that I’d recommend once the Estee Lauder is gone. It’s always fun to try new stuff.


27 Alison E. March 8, 2013 at 10:49 am

Hi Katie,
I am OBSESSED with anything Josie Maran. I love that her products are all natural because that is something that is super important to me! My favorite product of Josie’s is the Argan Daily Moisturizer broad spectrum SPF 40 lotion. My skin has never felt better!!! I’ve been religiously using it since June 2012. I also love the argan oil. I feel like that and coconut oil are the cures for any skin problems!!!!
