If you're into fashion and chic and stylish living, chances are you already know, or are one of Jen Reed's 1.3 million followers on Instagram. Her wildly successful channel, @TheSisterStudioIG, has been a mecca for affordable and accessible must-haves since as early as 2014. Sharing finds from top retailers like Amazon, Target, Walmart, and Ulta, Jen's taste and direction have become indispensable to those wanting to curate the look and feel of contemporary chic every day — on a budget.
Her own lifestyle and home fragrance brand, Life in Lilac, combines her passions: inclusivity, joy, and home, bringing an even more intimate look at her personal aesthetics and character. And speaking of home: that's where all our beauty products live, and we just had to know which 5 beauty products have permanent residence at hers — so we asked — and she joyfully shared her non-negotiables, absolute staples. Aside from, of course, her two kids, two dogs, and, just so you love her more, a firefighter for a husband.
"This product is one of my all-time favorites. This helps me extend my hair in between washes because it actually CLEANS your hair. I can go 5+ days between washes with this. I've been using it for years and can't recommend it enough!"
"I cannot say enough about this sunscreen. Everyone needs a good SPF, and this one is IT for me. I use this on my face, neck, and chest — it's incredible. It's light, hydrating, and blurs your pores. I was instantly hooked on this and now all my girlfriends are, too."
"I've become very reliant on eye products that brighten, de-puff, and wake up my face in the mornings. I've recently been using and loving the Tula Rose Glow — its results are INSTANT, which is perfect for me as a busy mom on the go. Plus, the reviews on this product speak for themselves."
"This palette is my best drugstore find in years. For under $20, you cannot beat it. I use this for bronzer, blush, and highlight — it's amazing. I reach for it over my more expensive palettes all the time!"
