Favorite Products Discovered in 2020

Hey guys! Welcome back. 🙂 I know many of you are happy to kiss 2020 goodbye at this point, however, I wanted to highlight some really great finds from 2020 that I will for sure take into 2021 with me! I love reading “round up” blog posts like this that tie together stand out products. I always end up finding one or two items that I want to try myself from other people’s posts, so I hope you find something from my list that you want to try! Let’s get started:

*Click on any item to shop!

Abercrombie Curve Love Jeans: Y’all probably knew this would be top of the list. Jeans are SO hard to find the perfect fit, and Abercrombie really nailed it with this cut. The curve love jeans have an extra 2 inches around the hip and thigh area, and then they taper more in the waist which means your booty and thighs are more comfortable AND you have no waist gap. I have these in 3 pairs! They come in petite, regular, and tall!

Aerie Offline Goals Leggings: Big surprise, I also own three pairs of these. When I love something, I love it lol. These are a true athletic looking legging that you can totally wear casual as well. They have a good amount of hold without being uncomfortable (wearing them now as I type this) and they are great to work out in and feel secure. If you are into barre workouts, I think you would love these!

Aerie Real Free Padded Bralette: My most worn bra of 2020. It is so so comfortable, y’all. I could sleep in it. I have this one in two colors and it is my go to bra for anything. Running errands, chilling around the house, traveling. It is a great one. It is almost a hybrid between a regular bra and sports bra, however, I wouldn’t wear this one for an intense work out.

Chain Belt: This is such a fun find of 2020! It can be worn in so many different ways and just adds a little something unique to your outfit. I love how adjustable it is to get the exact fit that you want depending on what you’re layering it over. Very affordable piece too!

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Serum: 2020 was a year that I experimented with skincare, and I really love this serum! I put it on before my moisturizer or mix it in depending on what I’m feeling. It is super light weight and I love adding in hydration to my skin care.

Paula’s Choice Super Antioxidant Serum: I don’t think I’ve talked about this one with y’all yet! I usually like to use products for a long time before sharing about them, so that I know how they perform. This has been constant for me for the past 7 months or so– love this serum! It is packed with amazing ingredients. I apply this at night before my moisturizer and eye cream, and I have actually noticed a significant difference. My skin texture is so much better and it brought an overall evenness to my complexion. It also has a brightening effect. I will definitely repurchase!

Paula’s Choice Light Weight Sunscreen: I talked about this product over the Summer with y’all, but I wear it everyday. It is super light weight so anyone can wear this and not be bothered by it. I actually layer moisturizer underneath since I have dry skin. It acts as a primer for makeup for me and it even blurs my complexion a bit, so it’s also really great on its own. It has a slight tint so that it will not leave a white cast.

Hourglass Bronzer: Oh my goodness y’all. Why was this new to me in 2020?? It is the most gorgeous bronzer. I wear this even if I only put on the tinted sunscreen above and mascara. It is just so youthful and glowy without making you look glittery. I have it in two different shades: Luminous Bronze Light for Summer and Nude Bronze Light for Winter. I also sweep this in the crease before eyeshadow or by itself. It’s a pricey but very versatile product, so it is worth it in my opinion.

Briogeo Hair Mask: I go through a lot of hair masks, and this one is definitely worth mentioning for this year. I am almost done with my current one, and I will be purchasing another. It is super moisturizing without being super heavy, which is odd to me because I actually love the feeling of a really heavy hair mask. This one gives me the results that I want without being so thick. I do like to add it drops of pure argan oil to any hair mask that I use. This is the one that I use.

Ouai Hair Oil: Another stand out hair product that re-discovered this year. This is a super light weight oil that I put on my ends after blow drying. It smells amazing and adds shine without adding grease. I even reapply this in between washes when my hair gets dry.

Thanks y’all for reading! I hope that you have a happy New Year!

Cheers,

Olivia
