Your Favorite Products from CUR

A few weeks ago, I did a little question box on Instastories to see what were some of your *favorite* products you bought on my recommendation. I think it’s so fun (+ also so, so helpful) for me to see what resonates with you most, especially in planning what else I can share to be as helpful as humanly possible to your everyday life. 🙂 SO, I rounded up some of the most popular results from that and combined them with what my behind-the-scenes analytics data tells me is the most clicked + most shopped by you (which is all anonymous data, FYI – it will tell me what link was clicked on that led to a purchase, but it never ever tells me what all was actually purchased NOR by who, so your shopping is always private!).

Tula cleanser/Tula in general – This is pretty sweet, especially since I feel like I’ve got an “I knew them when” view of the brand. I first discovered Tula maybe 5 years ago when they had just launched with only a few products and were sharing an NYC office with a tech startup. You had nerdy guys on one side of the room and girly girls on the other – talking shop in technology versus skincare. Tula just blew UP since then and has an extensive product line, many of which are staples in my own skincare routine. But their cleanser has been my absolute fave from the first time I tried it – and many of you now say the same! (You can always get 15% off any Tula with code COMINGUPROSES).

Here is my brutally honest review of all three Tula eye balms!

Amazon slippers – The fact that they’re about $60 less than UGG but softer, warmer, AND cozier makes it a winner winner chicken dinner all around.

THE CUPA staple for so many of us now!!! And we’re all mindblown time and time again – they’re literally better than a Yeti. ICYMI, I did a little side-by-side test on Instastories against J’s yeti and the cup won by a landslide – original ice was still frozen over 24 hours later!!! Katie said she bought two and her water was cold 24 hours later even without ice in it. I convinced Taylor to grab one, and she got hooked and convinced a whole bunch of people, too – and we got Chelsie on board, and countless other girlfriends. It comes with two interchangeable, leak-free lids – one for cold drinks with a straw, and the other for hot drinks. Temperature control works both ways!

Peep the #CURconvinced highlight on my Instagram profile to see all of you with your cups in action, too. 😉

Personalized book stackDefinitely one of my personal favorite pieces of personalized decor, so I’m so glad to see it’s one of yours, too! There are quite a few Etsy shops doing similar style books – they make the best housewarming or family gift and sit so pretty on a bookshelf.

Tru Fru – YAAAAS the mystical, magical Tru Fru made the list! These frozen raspberries dunked in one layer of white chocolate and then dark chocolate are a TRUly perfect sweet treat – for under 100 calories. You really just need one or two to curb a craving, and it’s a great flavor pairing of the chocolatey + fruity combo. Fair warning: you’ll get hooked.

Typeleague face mug – This mug is a HIT all around! Last year we got mugs with Olivia’s baby face for every single family member for Christmas; this year, her two-year-old photo is going on Sara’s new travel mugs in everyone’s stockings. They make such a good gift idea, especially for extended family, new parents, godparents – heck, even the men that are hard to shop for!

Spanx faux leather leggings – I’ve been wearing, recommending, and just loveloveloving my Spanx for YEARS – and they still look brand new. They’re really unparalleled when it comes to the trifecta of comfort, style + shapewear. I’ve got a few pairs of “dupes” but nothing tops the Spanx when it comes to warmth for the season, too – not to mention the fact that they’re the best in shape if you’re wanting the added high-waisted compression, too.

Olay moisturizer specifically, Olay Whips! This makes my heart so happy to have Whips on the list. I’ve been using Whips faithfully every morning since the end of 2017 when it first launched. It’s evolved a bit since its debut; I currently use the version with SPF 40 for sun protection to start the day. It’s super hydrating without being greasy at ALL, is breathable (bless up), and has technology inside to protect against harmful UV rays. For a great drugstore moisturizer, go with Olay!

I’ve shared Olay COUNTLESS times on CUR through the years – scroll through the archives here!

Amazon wireless bra – This gem of a wireless bra feels like a hug on your boobs – literally. It’s a really great affordable option for everyday wear – keeps ya snug and comfy without any pinching or pulling. My mom can confirm: absurdly comfy, worth grabbing a few.

Colorfulkoala leggings Steph said “I literally wear them ALLLL the time!” They’re suuuuuuuper similar to Lululemon Align pants. SUPER similar. As in if I had them both next to each for a blind feel/wear test…I get them mixed up all the time. For not even $30 compared to the $98 Aligns – they’re a steal!

I blogged these as my favorite pair of Lululemon lookalikes to date!

False lash effect $5 mascara – This gem of a mascara is not even 5 bucks on Amazon, but I’m SO IMPRESSED – and apparently, you are, too. 😉 I compared this on Stories to a $27 Marc Jacobs mascara and the unanimous vote was that the $5 one looked longer + more voluminous!

Sis Kiss necklace with a daughter’s name – Another one that warms my heart to see on the list since it’s a truly BELOVED piece of jewelry in my own collection. I saw someone get this done with her baby girl’s name while I was pregnant with Liv, and I had never before seen people use their kid’s name on a necklace like that. I got my Olivia necklace and have worn it nearly everyday since – every single day of her in the NICU, and anytime I’m traveling without her are musts. It’s a gorgeous dainty and different necklace, but it’s also just a really personal, sweet thing to get for yourself or a girlfriend who’s a new mama or expecting.

Maybelline lip dupe to Pillow Talk – This $7 lippy looks + wears reaaaaally similarly to the $34 cult-classic Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk lippy. This formula is SO GOOD – I’ve bought about 6 or 7 already, Katie and I have shown up places together wearing the same shade…it’s just a GREAT drugstore lippy. I lovelovelove it especially because it’s FOOLPROOF. It applies like a lip balm – you don’t even need a mirror. But it also has a built-in sharpener at the end so that you can use more precisely like a liner before filling in your lips. Gives you the look + longlasting wear of a favorite lipstick, without being drying.

Amazon joggersMeredith said she “just bought a second pair because I teach 100% virtually now and wear them daily!” I actually cannot BELIEVE these are under $15. They’re so incredibly soft, but feel high quality…truly a pair you’ll want to wear everyday like Mer.

Soma Enbliss bra – MY FAVE! I now have 3 of these and 2 of the other Enbliss Vanishing back version. (I like the wireless Enbliss better!). This bra is the BOMB, literally for all boob sizes…I kid you not. Which is mindblowing to me. But it is comfortable + supportive for smaller and bigger busted girls alike, which says something huge. No underwire – praise the sweet Lord baby Jesus. No gaping or pinching…I actually sometimes forget I’m wearing a bra with this bad boy. LoveloveLOVE!!!! And bras are so personal and obviously relevant to our everyday life, so I can help change your life in this small but significant way – sign me up.

Shoutout to Katie who said “pretty much everything I own” is from CUR-recommended. I stan you. 😉
