With the holidays approaching, we’re already on the hunt for presents that will pamper our loved ones. But with all of the beauty products to choose from, we needed some help narrowing down the options. Heather Rae El Moussa to the rescue! The Selling Sunset star appeared on Amazon Live last month to recommend her favorite finds for Self-Care Season. And naturally, we had to find out the secret behind the realtor’s flawless complexion.
It turns out that Heather used to work at a spa and even has her esthetician license! So, she really knows what she’s talking about when it comes to skincare. “Skincare, wellness and beauty is one of the most important thing to me,” she said.
Below are five self-care staples Heather swears by! You don’t have to be a Selling Sunset fan to appreciate these picks (but it probably doesn’t hurt). As it turns out, most of these products are also regulars in my skincare routine. Treat yourself or your BFF to these thoughtful holiday gifts!
Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Hydra-Gel Eye Patches
Heather revealed, “I like to put on these Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Pure Luxury Lift and Firm Eye Patches. I love eye patches! I will put them on in the morning right before I put on my makeup. You can put these on as you’re walking around getting stuff done, so you don’t have to lay there, sit there, waste time. Also, at night, this is a really good time to put them on. Either in the morning before makeup, just kind of soothes the eyes, gives you a firming pick-me-up. You can just put them on, gives you a firming pick-me-up. One of my favorite products as well!”
These eye patches are not just soothing, they’re also effective for reducing under-eye bags! I always use these gels before a big event.
Esapora Ice Roller
“This is the holy grail for me because I do have sensitive skin,” Heather shared. “I personally keep them in the freezer because they stay extra cold for extra long. I’ve tried so many different ice rollers. This is my absolute favorite. You can get them in any color. Best thing for sensitive skin. Best thing for rosacea and eczema. Best thing just to cool yourself down, de-red yourself, de-puff yourself. I highly recommend these. I use this every single day of my life.”
Ever wake up on the wrong side of the bed with a puffy face and swollen skin? This ice roller is a game-changer! So relaxing and restorative.
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask
“As we go into winter and fall, I don’t know about you guys, but my lips have been so extra dry,” Heather said. “This helps moisturize your lips. You sleep with it, you don’t have to waste time putting extra products on. You wake up with refreshed, beautiful lips. Highly recommend it. I promise you will love this one.”
No wonder this lip mask is the no. 1 bestseller in facial masks! A cult-favorite product beloved by celebs, this balm is smooth but not sticky. I use it all throughout the day for extra hydration and shine. My sister got me this lip mask for the holidays last year, and I’ve been obsessed ever since.
Heather called Ilia “one of my favorite chemical-free makeup brands. I use their foundation, I use the concealer, I use the lip and cheek products. Highly recommend them, love them. I use their products every single day, especially when I get my makeup done. I only have my makeup artist use my foundation and my concealer.”
Blush and lipstick in one? Brilliant! I love how smoothly this multi-stick glides onto my skin, giving my cheeks and lips just the right amount of shimmering color.
“The Nano Steamer! This is incredible for a little at-home facial. Incredible little steamer,” Heather gushed. “Do not do it with makeup on. Do it when your skin is fresh and clean. You’ll love it! I have one in my pantry right now. My glam artist has them and we actually used these my wedding weekend to make sure my skin was looking extra flawless, and my products went on deep in my pores, and everything was open and fresh and clean.”
Bring the spa home with this mini portable steamer! This multi-purpose product is a facial steamer, humidifier and towel warmer in one.
