13 Must-Try Beauty Products For Women…And 3 To Avoid!

The new year may just be around the corner and the list of health & beauty products seems to never end. We wanted to put together a list of the best and worst beauty products of 2020.

From high tech body shapers, to phenomenal hair growth products (and everything in between) here are 13 products that are well worth getting your hands on and 3 that you should stay far away from.

1. Revlon Photo Ready Cream Blush

Blush is the ultimate instant picker-upper. Be it rose, apricot, raspberry, or fuchsia, gel, cream, liquid, or powder, nothing livens up the face faster than faking a fabulous flush with a pretty pop of color swiped across the apples of your cheeks. The Revlon Photo Ready Cream blush is a lightweight formula that leaves a silky soft feel on the skin, and blends evenly over your cheeks.

2. Hanacure – The All-in-One Facial Set That Transforms Your Skin

You’ve seen women in their 40's, 50’s, 60’s and 70’s with very baggy eyes, which ends up making them look much older than they really are. Well guess what, that doesn’t have to be you! And if it already is, there’s something you can do about it right now.

This is probably the hottest beauty product of 2020 as celebrities like Kim K and Drew Barrymore can’t stop talking about its benefits and I expect that will continue into 2021.

Hanacure’s All-In-One Facial is like getting a spa facial in the comfort of your home. Backed by a ton of research, the company worked on this product for three years before sharing it with the public. Basically, it’s a powerful gel mask that transforms skin, leaving behind a smooth, radiant complexion.

If you can get your hands on some Hanacure, by all means, do it. It’s sold out pretty much every month due to its long list of loyal followers, from A-list celebrities to women just like you and me. Seriously, everyone who tries Hanacure loves it!

3. Blissy Silk Pillowcase - Wake Up Every Morning With Perfect Hair & Skin

The Blissy silk pillowcase is turning out to be one of the best kept secrets of 2020. This 100% Mulberry silk pillowcase promises to not only help you get the best sleep of your life, but it also actually improves the look of your hair and skin (because it doesn't absorb the moisture like cotton does). The Blissy has no chemicals, it's non irritating and it's actually antibacterial. Say goodbye to dust mites once and for all! Don't believe it will actually help? They have an iron clad refund policy so if it doesn't work for you just send it back to them and get your money refunded.

4. Drop The Extra Weight & Slim Down

Everyone knows that they could stand to lose a little weight in order to feel better, look better, and have more energy. But how do you get started? Jump start your weight loss at any age by watching this video. This system has specific recommendations and will show you how can actually stuff your face with your favorite foods and gain more energy, look younger and lose weight in the process.

There are no strict rules in this system, so there will be no need to starve yourself or do any of those exhausting exercises. You aren’t even required to count calories or anything like that. All you will need to do is stop eating a few “Harmful Foods” and begin eating MORE delicious healing foods to trigger your body’s master metabolic switch.

Simply follow the steps in the system, and put more of the foods you like back into your diet.

5. Get 7-9 Hours of Beauty Sleep With Dodow

When it comes to your beauty routine, sleep may be the closest thing there is to a fountain of youth. Women who get 5 hours of sleep per night may have twice as many wrinkles as women who get 7-8! New research shows that getting a good night sleep is actually the key to keeping your youthful look… and don’t kid yourself, 6 hours of sleep per night is vastly different than 7-9 hours. The problem is, millions of Americans are having a hard time falling asleep and getting a good night rest. This small, yet effective sleep aid device called Dodow will help put you to sleep. How does it work? Dodow sits on your nightstand and slowly projects a rhythmic glow onto your ceiling. Focusing on the light helps clear you mind, slows your breathing, and relaxes your body so you can quickly, peacefully drift off into a deep, restful sleep. More over, it’s completely safe, and non-addictive. No negative side effects!

6. Glamnetic Lashes – Stop Struggling With Lash Glue, Get These Magnetic Lashes That Make Your Eyes POP

We’ve all been there. You’re just about ready for a big night out, hair and makeup almost done, and you find yourself struggling in front of the mirror, trying to put on false eyelashes and getting glue everywhere instead. Eyeliner smudges and makeup’s ruined, but it’s too late to take it all off, and you’re on the brink of canceling wishing you just slapped on a coat of your favorite mascara instead. Boo.If you find yourself in this sticky situation (literally)…let me introduce you to the concept of magnetic lashes.What makes Glamnetic magnetic lashes so appealing is that they’re reusable (up to 40 times) meaning you are paying ~$1/wear, they’re less likely to rip off your natural lashes, and you don’t find yourself peeling off glue residue 2 days later looking like a ratchet mess. Basically, they seem like a cool, low-maintenance, hassle free version of the original, glue-on false lash. I tried them and now have over 6 pairs I use from a more natural look all the way to full glam.

7. Say Goodbye 👋 to Wrinkles, Fine Lines, and Loose Skin

I remember never worrying about wrinkles in my 20s, then I hit my 30s. My once tight, glowing skin seemed to be getting duller and looser. Nothing I tried worked. That's when a friend of my mine recommended 'facial cupping'. It combines the ancient practice of cupping and a skin-nourishing facial oil full of omega fatty acids and vitamins to improve blood flow and rejuvenate your skin!

Lure Essentials Glam Facial Cupping Set is the facial massage cupping kit of choice for high-end spas and dermatologists. In just a few minutes a day, 2-3 times a week, you can see noticeable results – like smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, reducing puffiness and tired eyes. It’s compatible with any skin type, compact for travel or use on the go, doesn’t require any kind of batteries or charging, and it’s safe for your skin and the environment!

We can’t recommend this one enough!

9. Goli Gummies – Get All The Benefits Of Apple Cider Vinegar By Eating These Delicious Gummies

Are you sluggish? Bloated? Feeling like you could eat everything in your pantry in one sitting? I FEEL YOU! . . . I used to take shots of hardcore Apple Cider Vinegar and cringed every time. Lately I have been taking 2 of these with each meal (morning, noon and evening) and it has helped me so much with my cravings, bloating and energy levels! And P.S. they taste like CANDY so I’m hooked. Goli Gummies are also vegan, gelatin and gluten-free, Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth!

10. Soul Insoles: High Heels Without the Hurt

Now here are 3 trending beauty products you need to stay away from.

1. Charcoal Black Mask

We know that everyone has been rushing to try these Charcoal Black Masks but here’s the thing. Not only do these black peel-off masks not actually do what they say on the packet, they also have the potential to damage your skin. We spoke to Andy Millward, facialist, aesthetician, and member of the British Association of Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology to find out if these masks are worth the pain of ripping off all the tiny hairs on your face, and he warned us of just how much damage they could be doing. ‘They effectively act like glue binding to the cells on the skin’s surface as well as any vellus hair,’ Andy said. So stay away from this fad.

2. Eyelid Trainer (yes, this is a real thing.)

Now this one’s just plain hilarious. This product was made by Japanese beauty enthusiasts to help women with “monolids” get a double-fold shape to their eyelids. All you have to do is wear this super weird glasses-type, horror-movie contraption every day and boom, you have prettier eyelids?? (And we thought waist trainers were ridiculous…) *shudder*

3. Brow Stamp

Eyebrows are hard enough to perfect when you’re armed with pencils, gels, pomades and powders – let alone when you have to hope for the best and stamp them straight onto your face. This brow stamp kit is trending on social media but Beauty gurus are saying this product is a bust because the powder slowly comes off, the formula is chalky, and you can never quite get the brows to line up in the right place.

So there you have it! The best and worst beauty and health products for us women over 40! We hope this helped you navigate your way through the thousands of products out there and get gorgeous results!
