My favorite Amazon beauty products that you can't find at Sephora

That's a rather long title for a post, I know, but it's what this one is all about. Now, I love Sephora (and worked there for several years), so this is not a dig at them. But Amazon does carry a lot of great beauty products from harder-to-find lines, many of them international, and when you throw in free two-day Prime shipping, that makes them pretty much irresistible. Here are my favorite beauty products from Amazon that I love and use regularly. 



Above products, left to right:

I have tried other micellar waters, but I keep going back to this one: it removes my makeup and thoroughly cleans my face without stripping it of moisture, plus it's unscented and incredibly affordable. One of these bottles usually lasts me close to 6 months. 

Bioderma Sensibo $14.90


I've featured this rollerball before, and it's still the best acne spot treatment around. It literally makes my pimples disappear overnight and, side benefit, clears my sinuses too. Best part? It's totally natural and not filled with chemicals that bleach your pillow or turn your skin into a flaky mess. 

Desert Essence blemish stick $11.94


This moisturizer was invented by a French doctor in the 1950s and while I keep trying others, I always go back to Embryolisse. This relatively no-frills formula keeps my skin hydrated and plump, and makeup goes on like a dream over it. 

Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré $28


I am a big fan of Davines, which is a sustainable Italian line that you can usually only find in hair salons. I particularly love their Oi products—the leave-in conditioner is excellent, and I use this as a finishing product to give my hair a little shine and seal my scraggly split ends. It smells ah-may-zing too. 

Davines Oi Oil $23


I always buy this multipurpose oil in duty-free, but when I run out, I buy it from Amazon. The scent is intoxicating, and it moisturizes like no other—I break this out in the winter when I'm in full reptile mode. Make sure you use it right after you get out of the shower, when your skin is still damp, to properly seal in the moisture. 

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse $48


In case you haven't figured it out by now, I have ridiculously dry skin (with an occasional patch of eczema, fun times). I also like to smell good. This body butter is a splurge, but it smells like paradise (or Hawaii, to be exact) and keeps my skin extra smooth. I want to try the rose version next. 

Kai body butter $52


Speaking of Hawaii, I discovered Sun Bum in Maui a few years ago—it's reef-safe, smells fantastic, and sinks into your skin beautifully. I also recommend keeping a tube of their Cool Down on hand—I've found it soothes a sunburn immediately, and (knock on wood) I've never peeled after using it. 

Sun Bum Cool Down $8.97

Thanks for sharing these products. The best product I've found for my little acne spots that pop up is tea tree oil (I get it from Body Shop), but my husband has more problems and I should share this post with him. I need to check out some of these for my winter dry skin!!!

Oooh, good to know about Cool Down! It's always good to have some after-sun care on hand! I've heard great things about a lot of these products before, so maybe I just need to try them! :)

Oh we have sun bum here, I have an SPF lip balm from them that's handy in the sun! :) maybe I need a tube of that just in case - I'm careful to avoid the sun and not get burnt but there are occasions where I'll do something like put my hair up when I'm out and hadn't sunscreened my back so I get burnt!

Hope you are having a nice weekend :) We had fun with the family celebrating Lunar New Year with a big meal yesterday :)
