Products for Your Glow Up in 2023:


Mighty Patches

Have somewhere to be and have a sudden outbreak on your skin? Hide pimples with the Mighty Patch.

When I worked at Target as a Seasonal Beauty Consultant, this was one of the top most sold out products, so I tried it. I put it on a new pimple and it reduced the size.

In addition, it hid the visibility of it for the most part and blended in with my skin.

Liquid Exfoliator

Do you have stubborn blackheads all over your face? Salicylic acid is a key ingredient you could use to reduce them.

Instead of using a harsh facial scrubber, try using this liquid exfoliant. Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant is also good for reducing enlarged pores, wrinkles, and fine lines.

Facial Steamer with Skin Kit

Sometimes you have to extract your own blackheads for those really stubborn ones. This 3-in-1 NanoSteamer unclogs your pores and gets rid of blackheads.

It has ionic water particles which is up to 10x more effective in penetrating skin.


This is a great skincare oil if you are looking to fade scars, stretch marks or improve the appearance of your skin. I had got breast reduction surgery and have been using this to reduce the appearance of scars.

When I was working at Target, this was one of the top items consistently sold out. I put this on every time I get out of the shower. It’s best to put it on after you put on lotion.

Mental Health

Essential Oil Diffuser

Have you ever used scents to change your mood? I have been using this essential oil diffuser for over a year and I love that it changes colors.

It can be more affordable than buying many candles and it’s not as bad for your lungs like scented candles are.

Essential Oil Pack

You can mix and match different scents to set a variety of moods with an Essential Oil Set. There are scent combinations for stress relief, mood booster, calmness, morning vibes, cleaning, etc.

You can also put a little of the scents on your skin and hair, in your bathtub, and make candles with them.


The first thing that should be part of your glow up is a journal. In order to glow up, you have to be able to reflect on your life of what is working and what is not.

You have to get to the core of who you are first to really know what you’re starting out with. Who is the person that you want to become?

Daily journaling is good to develop a healthy mindset and have conversation with yourself. I like getting journals that have an inspirational quote on the front.


Reusable Hair Spray Bottle

Keeping your hair hydrated throughout the day is important in preventing frizz. Carry a small hair spray bottle.

It can also be used for your face or to spray mist on plants.

Hair Volumizer

If your hair is more flat and you want to try more styles, then the Revlon Volumizer can help you do that and more in one step. It dries, styles, and volumizes your hair with less frizz and reduces hair damage.

Hair Oil

The Mielle Organics Rosemary Mint Scalp & Hair Strengthening Oil is another great product that is lightweight for hair growth. I tried this product and it didn’t clog up my pores like other hair oils.

It’s especially great if you have low porosity hair. I also use it for my dry ends.

Personal Finance

Budget Planner

If you’re looking for an affordable way to manage your money, having a simple budget planner is a good thing to start with. It’s so important to track your money if you truly want to build wealth and stop being broke.

You can use a budget planner to estimate how much you can save, invest, pay down debt, pay bills, and allocate for entertainment.

Simply making goals, cutting down on overspending, and seeing where you spend is going to allow you to take more control of your money.

Here are some statistics of wealth in the U.S.:

With how expensive everything is getting, now is the time to adjust your spending and savings.

Budget Binder and Cash Envelopes for Cash Stuffing

Do you struggle with overspending on your credit cards and your monthly income disappears too fast? You might want to try a cash stuffing binder. This method helps you to allocate cash to specific areas so you don’t overspend.

Many people find that they spend just as much as they need when they use cash instead of card. You see physically just how much you’re spending on each item.

You’ll have one envelope for your phone bill, one envelope for entertainment, etc.

Personal Finance Book

Learn how to create a budget on your current salary and invest in your future with the Clever Girl Finance book.

It is important to constantly be reading personal finance books and blogs. There is so much to learn and having the basic understanding of how to build a good credit score, pay down debt fast, and invest is so important to learn earlier.

If you’re younger now, investing in your personal finance education should be your top priority. Having a bad credit score can shut out many opportunities available to you like getting an approval for car loans, an apartment, and possibly even for some jobs.

Travel is a huge part of many people’s glow up experiences. You get to go to a whole new place where no one knows you and be your true self without judgement!

I highly recommend traveling solo as it helps build your confidence.

Travel with this water resistant duffle bag. You can use it for multiple purposes like camping and going to the gym also.
