My Beauty Routine MVP’s
As someone who loves all things beauty, I’ve tried my fair share of different brands and products. Although my beauty routine is constantly evolving, there are a few products I always use… the tried-and-true gems that keep me glowing and feeling my best. My current beauty routine combines these longstanding favorites with recent finds I can’t get enough of! I don’t want to gatekeep my beauty MVP’S, so I thought I would share 10 beauty products I can’t live without (pssst… I’ve also included a list of ‘honorable mention’ products I love). Whether you’re looking for the perfect everyday chapstick or a fool-proof way to get the perfect blowout at home, these items are sure to upgrade your beauty routine!

ZO Skin Health Cleanser & Polish
My latest (and greatest) skincare find is ZO Skin Health. Though I love all of the products in my morning and nighttime routine, my favorites are the ZO Gentle Cleanser and ZO Exfoliating Polish. They both have had a profound impact on my skin. I use the polish a few times a week to remove dead skin cells and stimulate cell turnover. The feeling after cleaning and polishing is FABULOUS!! You must try as I promise you will not be disappointed. Use code TIFFANY10 at checkout for 10% OFF your first ZO order!
Dr. Brandt Primer
I’ve used Dr. Brandt Pores No More Pore Refiner Primer for years and have yet to find anything that compares. It helps minimize my pores for seamless foundation application and keeps my face from getting oily throughout the day. I actually call this spackle for my pores.
Neutrogena Body Oil
This is another product I’ve used for years and absolutely swear by. Neutrogena’s Light Sesame Oil is easily the best body oil I’ve tried. I apply after showering to damp skin and it leaves my skin soft and shiny without the feeling of being greasy. Truly locks in moisture so well. I love the scented version but a fragrance-free option is also available!
Chantecaille Lip Definer Pencils & Lune + Aster Vitamin C Lip Gloss
These two items go hand in hand so I am sharing both! I’m always looking for a good lip combination… I tend to gravitate towards subtle colors that aren’t too overpowering for daily use. My recent favorite combination is the Chantecaille Lip Definer Pencil in Discreet (I also love shades Nuance and Natural), with Lune + Aster Vitamin C Lip Gloss in Vlogger. This combination is bold enough to make a statement but still subtle, and lasts throughout the day.
Trish McEvoy Mascara
If you know me, you know this is one of my “can’t leave the house without” beauty products. The Avene Cold Cream Lip Balm is hands down my favorite lip balm on the market. It is moisturizing, light, and smooth. I order in bulk to have at my desk, bag and multiple rooms.
Dyson Hair Dryer
In my opinion, the Dyson Hair Dryer is definitely worth the hype it has received for years. It keeps my hair healthy, shiny and drastically cuts down on my drying time. It’s a splurge, but for me, it has been worth every penny.
Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40
I always talk about the importance of protecting your face and body from the sun. Year-round, I apply sunscreen daily as part of my skincare routine. I love the SuperGoop Unseen Sunscreen because it’s lightweight and doesn’t leave my face feeling oily or sticky. It creates a smooth finish and a perfect base for makeup!

Living Proof Dry Shampoo
I’m truly a dry shampoo snob… I’ve tried countless brands throughout the years and finally found an effective dry shampoo that doesn’t leave a white cast on my hair. Living Proof’s Dry Shampoo soaks up the oil and allows me 3-4 days between hair washes. No other brand compares. I also recommend the mini size for traveling or testing it out!
Oral-B- iO Series 4 Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush
I’ve always used electric toothbrushes, but I recently switched to the Oral-B- iO Series 4 Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush at the recommendation of my dentist. This brush cleans my teeth so well and the technology is incredible (it even connects to an app via Bluetooth). It has a built-in 2-minute timer and pressure sensor that indicates optimal cleaning pressure and warns of overpressure.
Below are a few items that are just barely on the cusp of making my top ten list!
