Best Med Spa
Dr. Nassif Med Spa in Beverly Hills is amazing. I have gotten a vitamin IV drip there and also I do my coolsculpting there. This is the nicest med spa I have been to, the staff is is incredible and the services are amazing. If you are looking to get treatments they have the newest machines and technology also Dr. Nassif is from the TV show Botched so him and his staff know how to fix you if you something you had done didn’t go as planned. Why now just start with the best?
Best Facial Treatment
Sonya Dakar I have done three treatments with Sonya and I get stopped in the street with people asking me about my skin. She can cure any skin issues from psoriasis, eczema to acne. She can also sculpt your face to make it look slimmer, more defined and younger without any invasive treatments such as face lifts, fillers or botox. Keep people guessing on how old you are.
Best New Fragrance
Creed Floralie is the newest fragrance to The House of Creed and it’s a gorgeous and feminie scent. Floralie is modern and sophisticated. I love how fresh the scent it is. It is soft florals and is classic. I have been wearing Creed for over 20 years and this has become a new favorite.
Best New Lipstick
Givenchy’s Le Rouge Liquide is an amazing semi-matte lipstick. It feels velvety and soft on. I love that it’s not drying and is long lasting. It is lipstick reinvented with a liquid blur effect that makes your lips look full. All the colors are rich and pigmented. Did I mention that the case is so chic, it’s black leather with silver detail.
Best Sleep Mask
Glow Recipe’s Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask is hydrating and perfect for these winter months when your skin tends to lose it’s moisture. The mask is creamy and who wouldn’t want to go to bed and wake up with dewy and glowy skin? You will wake up with soft skin and your tired skin will look beautiful overnight.
Best Lip Treatment
Algenist did it again with their new vegan Collagen Lip Treatment. It made my lips fuller and diminished fine lines in just 10 days. There is no uncomfortable sensations because the product is made with plant collagen. It has beads of Microalgae Oil in collagen water to help visibly fill out lips and improve lip definition. Everything is naturally sourced and sustainably produced Alguronic Acid.
Best Supplement for Hair and Nails
Evolution 18 Strengthen is the best supplement to strengthen your hair and nails. It contains Cynatine® HNS which is soluble keratin that improves your skin, strengthens nails and reduces hair loss in 90 days. It will also help produce collagen and elastin in the skin which will keep you looking younger. After 90 days your skin will glow, your hair and nails will look amazing and you can thank me later.
Best Nude Lip Liner
Nude Envie’s Lip Liner in Timeless is a beautiful shade of cool and mauve that compliments every skin tone. You can wear it with almost any nude lipstick or use it to fill in your lips. I love that it’s free of parabens, cruelty free, vegan and gluten free. It also contains vitamin E and jojoba oil.
Best Facial Spray
If you watch my Instagram stories you know I am obsessed with facial sprays. I always have one in my bag with me. The one that really stood out for me is Emma Hardie’s Plump & Glow Hydrating Mist. It contains wild watermint that moisturizes, protects and tones the skin. It also has velvet flower and aloe vera soften your skin and hyaluronic acid that diminishes fine lines and plumps dehydrated and dull-looking skin. I just finished mine and need to order another bottle!
Best Eye Shadow Palette
Urban Decay’s Born To Run is the perfect palette for versatile looks. It has a good variety of neutrals and some pops of color. You can create day looks and take them to evening looks. Each shadow is pigmented and stays put.
Best Body Lotion
Avene’s Moisturizing Melt-In Balm will leave your skin feeling soft and supple. It also protects your skin from oxidative stress. It is infused with Avène’s Thermal Spring Water that helps reinforce skin’s natural barrier while protecting against free radical damage. It is gentle enough to use on all skin types.
Best Sheet Mask
Starskin has some of my favorite sheet masks and it was hard to choose just one from the brand. The Sculpting V-Shape Compression Lace Mask is amazing. This mask is inspired by medical science and compression treatments to visually improve facial definition. It also has concentrated anti-aging ingredients. The lace mask fits tightly on the face and chin to sculpt and reshape the skin, simulating a natural face-lift for a more defined jawline.
Boscia is an amazing skincare line so it’s hard to pick the best product from the line. I can tell you ever since I have been using the Sake Hydrating and Brightening Serum everyone has been complimenting my skin. Sake brightens, evens out skin tone and hydrates your skin. There is Willowherb in it that calms inflammation and redness. Sea Whip that is an anti-inflammatory. It also contains caffeine that will help detoxify your skin and firm it.
Best Hair Care Product
Rene Furterer Triphasic Hair Ritual Serum is amazing for those who want thicker and fuller hair. It’s a drug-free solution for progressive, hereditary hormonal hair thinning. It helps with natural hair growth, it improves scalp health so that you can grow healthy hair and it’s easy to use. You can get thicker, healthy hair in about 3 months.
Best Dry Shampoo
I normally hate dry shampoo but after using Klorane’s Dry Shampoo I can say that this is the best one. It doesn’t leave any residue in your hair or powder. Use it in between washes or you can use it to add a little texture and volume. Either way your hair will look amazing after using it.
Best New Product
Lashify lashes is an at home lash extension kit. It’s so innovative and amazing that you won’t want to get lash extensions again. You can wear these up to a week long, shower and even swim with them on. They come in three different styles and different lengths so that you can customize your look . You don’t apply them on your lashes but underneath your lash line. You can do natural looks or build on the lashes for a more glamorous look. Believe me you need these.

Traditional Chinese Medicine, Gua Sha helps release toxins from the body and improve blood flow and qi (the body’s vital energy) to your skin.

Orlane’s All Over Highlighting Stick is the best. It gives you that glow without looking glittery. It illuminates your complexion. Apply it to your cheekbones, eyes, or even your décolleté and you will look like you’ve been kissed by the sun. It’s flattering on all skin tones.

Best Multi Use Product
You might be thinking why is a candle in the best of beauty? Well Krigler candles can be used as body oil too. They are so pure that when you light them the candle “wax” is actually an oil and is very hydrating and you can choose the scent that you love and you’ll have your favorite fragrance as a body oil or massage oil. Also, once your candle is done you can either take your candle to the store to get refilled or you can repurpose the glass for something else like holding your makeup brushes.
