I cannot believe this year is almost over. It has been such a huge year for all of us. For me, it was a year of massive change. I left my job, we moved, and I dove head first into blogging full time. SO much has happened in this past year, and I want to say THANK YOU for being here for all of it. When Ashley and I were deciding how to round out the year, we thought it would be fun to look at what we use most. Obviously we are always showing our lives and sharing out secrets… but we wanted to share the tried and true items that we use most. Ashley shared hers yesterday… so here are my Most Used Products Of 2019.
Shop Emily’s Most Used Products Of 2019:
The GloPro is an at home microneedling device that we SWEAR BY! It helps all signs of aging, plumps skin, diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, lightens stretch marks and uneven skin tone, and helps product absorb up to 200x better. How it works: As the mini needles roll over the skin, they create micro-injuries, and then your skin produces collagen to help heal those micro-injuries.
R45 is a peptide and retinol combo that delivers the perfect amount of retinol over 45 days. The amount of retinol builds over the 45 days, so you don’t have any irritation, flaking or peeling like you would with normal retinol products.
Microfiber Washcloths have been such a game changer for SO many of you. They provide better cleansing, so they help anyone with acne-prone skin by getting all makeup and grime off of the skin. How they work: Use a damp washcloth at night with your favorite cleanser to remove makeup and daily grime. They come in a pack of 12 so we use a new one every night and then wash on the weekends.
These dryer balls are an amazing way to reduce the amount of chemicals in your home. I put some lavender essential oil on mine and my sheets and clothes smell absolutely amazing.
We love our NuFaces so much and we were so excited to see so many of you jump on the bandwagon this year. The Nuface uses microcurrents to give a “natural” facelift. Via Google – “This safe and painless facial helps erase fine lines and wrinkles, while firming your skin and defining your features. It improves muscle tone, reduces puffiness, increases cellular activity, and tightens pores. Electro therapy tones the muscle underneath the skin. Think of it as a workout for your face. As the muscles under the skin are toned, the skin is more even and smooth.
This face cream is my HOLY GRAIL face cream. I use it day and night, and at night I combine it with these tanning drops. It is in a set right now and you literally get the other two amazing products for free along with this face cream. It is UNREAL. It is without a doubt one of my Most Used Products Of 2019.
This eye cream is simply amazing. If you have very dry under-eyes and need something seriously nourishing and hydrating – this is it. When we met with the Fresh beauty team in New York, they actually told me THE most amazing story about this product. The two founders of the company were in the product development stage and they were traveling abroad in Italy. They were at a monastery and found ancient roman transcripts about a special healing ointment that gladiators used to heal their wounds. This eye cream is based on that formula. How FREAKING COOL is that?
Talk about a GAME changer. This robot vacuum cuts our vacuuming in half. With 3 messy kids and a new puppy… it is seriously a Godsend. It is so nice that our house literally gets vacuumed while we sleep!
This is truly the best vacuum of all time. It is light, portable, and super effective.
This serum is absolutely a GAME CHANGER. Ashley introduced me to it – and I will never go back. Mandelic acid is an AHA – Alpha Hydroxy Acid – that is less intense than say Glycolic Acid, but the premise is the same. The acid/serum chemically exfoliates your skin and leaves you with fresher, softer, and better looking skin. Again- the key is GENTLE. I have very sensitive skin – and this product has helped me SO much!
This color corrector is my absolute favorite makeup product of ALL time. It is seriously the most amazing thing in the whole wide world and I don’t know how I ever lived without it! You pat it on, under your eyes, with the shape tape and you blend it in as an undereye concealer. It makes the texture of the shape tape and the coverage better. What’s more – it works as a highlighter and gives you this amazing dewey finish! I use the light color.
These monochrome knit sets are the ABSOLUTE best! So many of them are under $25 right now. Scoop them up while you still can! Some of the short knit sets do run a bit small, so be sure to size up! I wear a size small in all of them!
You all know that this CC cream is my absolute favorite. It has an SPF 50 built in, it goes on light, and with build-able coverage it is the perfect base for my makeup routine. I wear the shade medium. I apply with my fingers or with a damp beauty blender if I want very light coverage. It is super easy to apply and it acts as a moisturizer as well. This is definitely one of my holy grail products! I use the shade – Medium.
I am a Keurig person through and through. I use mine every day and I even have one in our guest room! This is one of my most used products every year… but definitely one of my Most Used Products Of 2019.
Truly this was my best purchase of 2019. We use it every day and all the parents in my family got one for the holidays!
This planner is the only way that I can truly stay organized. I run my own business, have three kids, and try to be an active community member, and I swear this is the only way any of that gets done.
As you all know, I am ALWAYS wearing these boots! They are SOOO perfect and truly the best . They go with everything and are SO comfortable. They also run totally TTS which I love!
I truly reach for this shirt every single day. It looks so expensive, but it is just under $50. It makes the perfect layering piece, it washes well, and it goes perfectly with any outfit. I love that it looks like a bodysuit, but totally isn’t one.
This white button down is THE best! It is semi sheer, it doesn’t wrinkle, and it pulls together every outfit.
This sweater has been on my bestsellers list since I took the plunge this fall and I just adore it. It is so easy to wear and I think I have it in seriously EVERY color!
I talked about this on stories a while back, but I had searched FAR AND WIDE for the perfect nude lipstick. I finally found this one and I bought 5 in case they ever discontinue it. It has a nice creamy texture, it is THE perfect color, and it really stays put if you need it to. I use the color Beige Tribute.
The Jimmy Choo Romy pump is my ride or die pump. I just hosted Hanukkah dinner in these and was on my feet for 5 hours straight in them. Heck… I have run through Times Square late for a show in these. And I promise you… they are the best of the best. As far as pumps go, you can’t beat the look or the comfort.
I was obsessed with my cross necklace from Diamonique, and I loved it so much that Joe got me the real one for Christmas. I found a bunch that look super similar. Some are real, some are not… up to you what is in your budget!
We get asked about these mugs constantly. They are super modern, and they just look amazing in any kitchen! They are also HUGE, so they fit a ton of coffee!
We use these for water glasses and cocktail glasses. Or favorite super cool/chic restaurant in town uses them and I stalked the owner to find out where she got them. I loved them so much I had to order them for our home. Turns out they are the most inexpensive glasses I have ever ordered.
We have been raving about this back massager for over a year – and let me tell you – if you’re not one of the thousands of people who have bought it… jump ON THE TRAIN! It has almost 9,000 amazing reviews! Just a word to the wise… you absolutely can overdo it. I leaned into it so hard the first time I used it, and I was SO sore. We both use ours nightly. It really helps work out any back or neck tension you may have!
This is the BEST coverlet. It is super simple, it washes well and it looksSOOOO expensive. I also love that it goes with EVERYTHING, the set includes two pillows, and for under $100 you can have a super chic bed!
I use this as my exfoliating step. You place a small pour of the Rice Powder in your hand with a couple of drops of water to form a paste, and then you massage it all over your face. I add a bit more water and it starts to foam and works as my second cleanse. It is a gentle exfoliator and perfect for sensitive skin.
Can’t express how much I love the Billie!!!!
