Amazon Beauty Finds // January Best Sellers

I recently became an official Amazon Beauty Influencer, so exciting!  As part of my commitment to you all and Amazon, I will be sharing the best-selling seasonal products for each month!  

Chapped Lips

As the temperatures cool, dry skin and hair are skincare priorities!  My daughters have severely chapped lips; they use and love Burts Bees 100% natural moisturizing lip balm.  With over 73K 5 star reviews, you know your lips are in the best hands.

Dry Skin

For dry skin, I use a full-body moisturizer that works well for the whole family, such as the  CeraVe Moisturizing Cream.  I LOVE hand creams; I keep them bedside and in my car; my current favorite is First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream.

Dull Hair

The cold weather can cause hair to become brittle and break more easily.  To prevent breakage and keep your hair looking healthy all year round, try the best-selling Olapex Bonding Oil.  This non-greasy oil is perfect for frizzy, dry hair.

Along the hair care lines, I wanted to drop a pitch for the Tea Tree Shaping Cream.  This unisex hair cream has a flexible hold that is perfect for managing flyaways.  Both my daughters and my husband use it!

With a few more months of winter ahead of us, add these skincare solutions to your cart, and rest assured that you are using the best of best products available to you!

Your Chick,

Rina

DIY Eyebrow Grooming

If you are reading this post, there is a good chance that you are female, over 27 years old, maybe a mom, and need some serious grooming. If the last two years have taught me anything, it is how to take care of business (aka my eyebrows) myself. After not going to the salon for threading for over a year, I saved a lot of time, but I also saved a lot of money by problem-solving my brows. 

About three years ago, I got micro-blading done (see the photos and full post here), and until I can get them re-done by the same aesthetician, I have been using these four tools to keep up with my brows.

Check our all of my beauty posts here.

Eyebrow Pencil By Benefit

I have talked to many of my friends and we all agree that even our eyebrows thin out over time. I fill mine in daily with this pencil by Benefit (#5) to combat thinning eyebrows.  

Many other pencils on the market have similar colors and price points, but not all of them last as long as this one does. After testing them all for you, this one is the clear winner. It also doubles up as a quick eyeliner if need be; try it!

Nair Wax Strips

These gentle strips are perfect for even the most sensitive skin and get rid of the more thin and fine hairs that you can’t get with tweezers and scissors.

CALA Tweezers

Speaking of tweezers, this CALA set is by far the sharpest and most precise tweezer set I have ever used! I used to use Tweezerman until I discovered these; now, I keep a set in my car, too, for touch-ups on the go.

Flawless Hair Remover

I own about five of these! My tweens use the Flawless to groom their eyebrows and upper lip. Even my husband has used it! It is the easiest and most painless way to remove unwanted hair on the face quickly. Add this to your cart and keep it in your car; it will come in handy!

I hope this post delivers on something you need to put your best face forward every day. For more of my favorites on Amazon, check out my storefront!

Your Chick,

How to Land More Collaborations in 2021!

Gosh, it’s been nearly two years since I wrote this post about how bloggers make money, and already I have so much to add.

At the time I was knee-deep in affiliate programs and blog sponsorships. Since then and after joining many platforms that bring brands and influencers together, my opportunities (and cash) have multiplied month after month.

“It has always been my goal to either inspire, educate, or entertain with Chicks and Salsa.”

Many collaborations come through to my email. MOST I hustle for. The rest I get matched for on one of the platforms I am going to highlight below. Just as I did before I wanted to share all the platforms on which I have successfully landed paid and gifted collaborations with companies I love.

Here is a list of platforms that I highly recommend creating profiles on to get matched with companies looking for people JUST LIKE YOU. No audience is too small, engagement numbers are equally as important.

Once you have created your profile, it is easy! You just apply to campaigns you are eligible for or interested in and wait to hear from the brand.

NORDSTROM.com

Here they are:

I have worked with L’Oreal, Aveeno, Coola, GUIDE Beauty, Spa Science, KRIS Wines, and more via Aspire IQ.

I have worked with Hand in Hand, Hollywood Browzer, CVS, SIJO, Good To Go, and more via Cohley.

I can’t say enough about how much Fohr has taught me! They have excellent influencer-forward education that they share on a weekly basis on their YouTube channel. I also suspect that many of the emails that come to me with opportunities, come via Fohr.

I am new to this platform but they recently ran a campaign with BVLGARI and I was part of their KISS Nails campaign.

CLEVER has many awesome opportunities and works with many big names and familiar brands, however, I have been unable to land an opportunity with anyone yet (here’s to 2021!)

I discovered Shopping Links when we met with the founder at ThinkTank in Chicago in 2019. Since then they have partnered up with high-end brands like INTERMIX, NYDJ Jeans, Double Icon, and more!

MAVRCK recently partnered up with Express for their Winter Campaign, sadly, I was not part of this.
