14 Beauty Products We're Thankful For

Did you know we have less than 50 days until Christmas Day? And we’re creeping up to Thanksgiving Day, which is generally when my family and friends start stalking me for my Christmas wish list! If you’re looking for some beauty products to add to your Christmas wish list this year, you’ve come to the right place! I had a chance to chat with the Loxa Beauty blogging team about the beauty product they couldn’t live without!

Here are the 14 beauty products our team loves the most and WHY:

Review of KMS HairPlay dry shampoo

1) Dry Shampoo

"Since I started using dry shampoo last year, I've gone from washing my hair every other day to now every four days! It's such a huge time saver and allows me to hit the snooze button more often. If I'm struggling to style freshly clean hair, I use a little bit of dry shampoo as a texturizer, too. My favorite dry shampoo is KMS California Hair Play Makeover Spray. " - Melanie Allen

2) Eye Gel

"The beauty product I'm most thankful for is Sorme Anti-Puff Brightening Eye Gel. I've been using this for over a month now and am completely hooked. It's a cooling gel that wakes up tired eyes and instantly erases puffiness, dark circles and fine lines. This has honestly been a god-send and I recommend it to anyone on board the anti-aging train. VERY thankful for this product! Also: This gel comes in a decently-sized tube and a tiny dab under each eye is more than sufficient, so it will last you a long while. Worth the money!" - Staci Starks

3) Miracle Leave In Spray

"Because of coloring and frequent heat styling, my hair gets pretty damaged. I recently started using It's a 10 Miracle Leave In Spray. My hair feels much softer and less dry, plus the scent is heavenly. I know that I'll be using it a lot this winter!" - Melanie Allen

Melanie isn't the only one who couldn't live without this product...

"I couldn't live without the Its a 10 Miracle Leave-In Product.  I apply it while wet before I blow dry and it leaves my hair soft, manageable, and touchable.  Without it, I cannot shape my style as well and it doesn't hold as long which is a must as I only shampoo my hair every 3-4 days." - Danielle McDowell

4) BB Cream

"I am most thankful for BB Cream. I use Olay BB Cream. It's fresh effects. It doesn't even feel like I'm wearing makeup I just look way better with it on. I hate makeup. Love BB Cream." - Lara Parker

5) Fake Eyelashes

"I'm most thankful for fake eyelashes.....They make you entire face/makeup  look amazing for special occasions. Even better? Finishing lashses with Sorme Extreme Volumizing Mascara in Black. It makes your eyes POP." - Megan Giannini

6) Acne Serum

"Frangipani Acne Serum is a great product that has helped keep acne at bay, but it's also helped transform how I look at skin care. I was always taught to avoid oils, but since using it I've adopted other natural oil-based products into the mix and my skin has been better than ever--less greasy, less breakouts, and pesky dry patches that pop out around this time of year haven't shown up." - Sarah Eutsler

7) Nail Polish

"Nail polish always makes me feel put together even if I think the rest of me isn't. Plus, it's a low cost and low commitment way to try out trends or statements (crazy purple glitter, metallic blue, etc.) outside my comfort zone. Right now I'm loving Julep in Daria, a smokey gray, but every woman should have OPI Red for an instant classic look." - Sarah Eutsler

8) Mascara

"I would have zero eyelashes (well, basically) without Sorme Extreme Volumizing Mascara. I have blonde hair, so the black/brown shade works wonders for me!" - Hannah Shaner

9) Hairspray

"I've recently fallen in love with Sebastian Re-Shaper hairspray! I am a fond believer in this product!" - Hannah Shaner

10) Face and Body Scrub

"I am most thankful for Ocean Salt Face and Body Scrub from Lush Cosmetics.

It's like a sun kissed vacation in a jar! This stuff instantly leaves my skin noticeably brighter, soft and glowing--even in the winter months. I didn't realize how much I loved it until I ran out. I thought I'd try some other random brand, but the results just weren't the I replenished my beloved scrub ASAP.  Nikki + Lush Ocean Salt forever!" - Nikki Duckworth


12) Morraccan Oil

"I am most thankful for Morraccan oil in the summertime!  And all year really, but especially in the summertime because I can go swimming and just apply a little after I get out and it keeps incredibly moisturized. I also really dig the shine it gives my curls all throughout the day.  Plus, it leaves the curls feeling pillow soft." Brendon McAvoy

13) Facial Towelettes

"My favorite beauty product is Yes! To Grapefruit correct & repair brightening facial towelettes. I love them because they are an easy way to refresh your whole face. A good product to use first thing in the morning, for a pick me up in the middle of the day or before bed!" - Lindsay Marvin

14) Root Volume Powder

As for me, I’m most thankful for my Schwarzkopf Pro Osis+ Dust It Mattifying Powder! I have extremely thin hair and I need all the help I can get when it comes to adding volume (and making my styles last longer). My black eyeliner is a close second - I honestly feel naked without my eyeliner!
