This 32-page magazine is a guide to my all-time favorite beauty products.



To celebrate the last Sunday of the decade, I am sharing four of my favorite beauty finds from TJ Maxx, all of which are perfect for my self-care routine.

After finishing and loving an entire bottle of my Heritage Store Rosewater & Glycerin Spray, I found a new one for $7, compared to the usual $10 at Urban Outfitters. This is very similar to the Mario Badescu one but less fragrant and a little more dewy. I love using it on bare skin in the morning and before bed and, of course, after I finish my makeup.

After seeing dozens of commercials for the new and relatively pricey drugstore skincare line on TV and admiring it at CVS, I was surprised to find a box of the Aveeno Positively Radiant MaxGlow No-Mess Sleep Face Mask on the shelf. Rather than costing $18 like it would at other stores, this was only $6. It’s more of an ordinary, brightening moisturizer rather than a deeply hydrating face mask, but it smells like kiwis and has convenient packaging that can be twisted into an on/off position.

Too Faced has always been one of my favorites beauty brands and their concealers are some of their most popular products, so you cannot imagine my excitement when I discovered the Born This Way Naturally Radiant Concealer for only $9 as opposed to the $28 it costs at Sephora. This has quickly become one of my most reached for products, as the shade ’Warm Medium’ melts into it skin, making it easy to spot conceal on foundation-free school days. I’ve consistently seen this product at several TJ Maxx locations across the US, so make sure to head to your nearest store to pick one up! The formula is unbeatable!

Drybar is a brand that has always intrigued me, and this year I want to make more of an effort to try their hair products. Finding the Detox Dry Shampoo in the limited-edition ‘Coastal Cooler’ scent for $15 rather than $23 was a great way to test out their line. I can never have enough bottles of dry shampoo, and this one feels as fresh as ever! The smallest amount eliminates unwanted shine while boosting volume.

Thanks for allowing me to share these four exciting TJ Maxx finds! These types of stores can definitely be hit or miss, but I always double-check that the product I want to purchase has not been opened or touched, and I often do a quick Google search to check reviews, swatches, prices, and availability, especially since I want to save money and avoid buying discontinued items.
