Figured since it’s not February until tomorrow I still have time to get this 2017-referenced post up.
These are my homies, bff’s, OG’s, can’t-live-without products of 2017. Pretty sure I used every single one of these just about every day last year and will continue to do so in 2018.
1 | If you haven’t gotten on the “Calm” magnesium powder train yet then you better get on it. Makes you sleep like a literal rock and dream the weirdest dreams it’s amazing.
2 | Best investment ever. You could probably throw diamonds in the Vitamix and it’d turn into a diamond soup.
3 | 2017 was the year that I took my water consumption and plastic waste reduction efforts up a level. Hydroflask bottles are 100% a must in my life. OR just any reusable water bottle that actually makes you want to drink water because you feel like a badass drinking out of this stainless steel super slick water bottle. Just me?
4 | Ahhh Biozymes. 2 Before bed and 2 first thing in the morning to get those good digestive enzymes on fleek. AMAZING for traveling since that tends to screw up your digestion, and we all know that digestion is the 2nd brain of our bodies so yeeeees plz. Gimme gimme more.
5 | GUYS. This brand, Deciem, is going to blow the eff up. Highest quality skincare ingredients at the cheapest prices. It’ll make you scratch your head but it’s legit, trust me. The company is very authentic in it’s branding and the CEO is always on instagram talking to his audience and is just very hands on which makes it that much more legit and believable. This is what I’ve been using everyday and I’ve noticed the biggest difference in my complexion. I’m not turning back. Got lots of skin compliments in 2017 just sayin…
6 | My fitness regimen in 2017 was predominantly plyometric-based, which meant a lot of jumping around and overall flailing all over the place with body weight moves. So, to say that these headphones were a complete game changer still doesn’t give them as much credit as they deserve in my book. PLUS, they died on me once and I just sent them in and got a brand new pair for free so they have an amazing exchange policy which I appreciate. And no, they’ve never fallen out once no matter what the workout. I love them so much you guys.
7 | This sunscreen is bae. It blurs out imperfections on my face right as I put it on, it’s amazing underneath makeup, and it’s organic/chemical-free/mineral-based. I genuinely believe that most skin cancer is caused these days by the chemicals in sunscreens and people using it recklessly on a daily basis. That shit goes straight into your bloodstream. The more natural the better please.
8 | Of all the natural deodorants I tried in 2017, from sprays to pastes you apply with your fingers, this Ursa Major Brand came out the winner by a million miles.
9 | I workout a lot so this little device I keep in my shower has saved my life. Use it just about every day. Feet feeling like a baby’s butt.
10 | Thank you mom for introducing me to this mascara because for days when I don’t wear eyeliner or shadow but still want long lashes without the hassle of taking off makeup with remover (aka the less I touch my eye area creating wrinkles) it has been a life saver. Just throw some water on your eyes and they mascara just rolls off, leaving no residue to clean. BLESS UP.
11 | Balances hormones, regulates stress/pms levels, lowers sugar + cholesterol levels,balances libido, increases energy, boosts mood, brain clarity, mental alertness, circulation, supports optimal organ function, protects against DNA damage, promotes anti-aging + longevity, and so on. I put “Wahine” in my coffee and then “Cleanse” in my water from Naikela Botanicals every.single.day. To give you an idea, Wahine contains: Cacao, Peppermint, Moringa, Turmeric, Chaste Tree Berry, Tulsi, Ashwagandha, Shatavari, Angelica, Polynesian Spinach, FoTi, Stevia. Adding tiny superfood additions into my diet has benefited me in so many ways it’s insane. I can’t preach enough that everyone should be including or at least open to learning about adaptogens. Just going to leave that there and you do the learning for yourself.
