My Top Beauty Favorites Of 2023
So, in all honestly, this past year wasn’t the best, and in fact it was a pretty rough year for me personally and I am not at all sad to say goodbye to 2023. However, there were a few bright spots and good things that I discovered throughout the year that I want to share with you!
I fell in love with some really amazing beauty products last year so I decided to round them all up and share my top beauty favorites of 2023! Let’s do it!

My Top Beauty Favorites Of 2023
There’s no particular order to the products and most things will be conveniently linked on Amazon for you if you want to try out any of my beauty favorites! So without further ado….
My first fave is the HaruHaru Wonder Bakuchiol Eye Cream. I have tried so many eye creams it’s crazy and I couldn’t find one that really truly worked and helped my eyes to look and feel a little less tired and stressed…that is, until now!
This eye cream is not only a clean Korean beauty brand, but actually makes a difference in the way my eyes look and feel! It really is a wonder! Made with bakuchiol, a natural retinol alternative, it helps fight fine lines and dark circles for a fresher and more moisturized under-eye. I won’t live without it!
Speaking of Korean beauty, we all know about the viral snail mucin which I use and love, but the product that really got my attention from COSRX is their Propolis Ampoule Glow Boosting Serum. This golden nectar brightens my skin while adding an extra boost of hydration and leaves me looking a little less dull and tired.
It’s slightly tacky and sticky at first, but it absorbs quickly and doesn’t stay sticky on your skin long at all. I usually immediately put my moisturizer on top and it feels lovely.
Next is a night oil that I have fallen in love with! I just ordered a new bottle and highly recommend this stuff! The ECOFABULOUS Nighttime Face Oil is the perfect lightweight oil to wear to bed!
With bakuchiol and lavender oil, it helps with fine lines, redness, dryness, and more for a multi-benefit oil that feels amazing on the skin and is of course made from all clean ingredients!
For the first makeup item on my list, I absolutely have to choose the E.L.F Liquid Glitter Shadow! I am quite literally obsessed with this eye shadow and wear it almost daily! It’s perfect to wear on its own for a touch of sparkle, or to add on top of matte shadow for a more glam look!
There are multiple colors to choose from and I love them all, but I gotta say my favorite is the shade ‘ Flirty Birdy’ it’s a neutral nude shade with glitter that looks like your eyelids are naturally sparkly! I love it! Plus, it’s 50% off right now, making it just $3!
For all of us exhausted mamas, these 24K Rose Gold Undereye Patches are life savers! I genuinely see a difference in my under eyes after having these on for about 20-30 minutes! Plus, they don’t slide around your face as some other eye patches tend to do. These stay in place and feel so refreshing on those early mornings!
Another current makeup staple for me is the Covergirl Lash Blast Clean Waterproof Mascara! A little hack, if you don’t know…waterproof mascara is great for helping stubbornly straight lashes hold a curl, so I’ll never not use waterproof mascara!
I have loved the Last Blast mascara for about a decade, but a cleaner version that will help my stick-straight lashes stay curled? Say no more!
When it comes to bath and shower products, I do have one to share that is just so so good! I discovered the Aleavia brand in 2023 and it’s one of the best clean beauty brands out there! Their Orchid Body Cleanser is by far my favorite body wash ever!
Not only does it smell like heaven, but knowing that it’s clean, non-toxic, and healthy for my skin/body is a huge deal. I always feel clean fresh and hydrated after showering and did I mention how amazing this smells? No synthetic fragrance either, just pure clean goodness!
Moving on to hair, I really love the EVOLVh Natural Leave-In Conditioner. It’s a spray formula that doesn’t weigh your hair down, but adds moisture, detangling, and heat protection to your freshly washed hair! It has a very nice light scent and is a clean product with no nasty stuff!
These may not necessarily be a beauty product, but I’m including them anyway! I use these every day when I wash my face, so they are definitely part of my beauty routine. These cute wrist cuffs help to keep my wrists and countertop dry when I wash my face and I won’t go without them!
As for my lips, my favorite product is the Catrice Glossin’ Glow Tinted Lip Oil. I wear this on its own and over my lipstick, depending on the look I’m going for, but I absolutely love the non-sticky shine that adds some much-needed moisture to dry lips along with a hint of color.
I’ve tried a lot of face primers recently and the only one to get my attention was the E.L.F Poreless Putty Primer. It’s super smooth, creamy, and helps to blur my pores and texture. It works well under most of my foundations and I will definitely be repurchasing!
My last and probably most favorite beauty item of 2023 is the Biossance Squalane + Elderberry Jelly Cleanser. My face has never felt more hydrated or looked as healthy! It’s an absolute must-have for me and if you’re in need of a good facial cleanser then this one is top-tier!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this post! Let me know if you love any of these products as much as I do, and make sure to subscribe before you go so you never miss out on new posts or any of the fun goodies in my monthly email newsletter!
