This post is a little different, as in it’s a lot lighter than my last few posts. I wanted to share some of the products that I’m in love with right now. I’ve been LOVING the following products: Philosophy Amazing Grace Ballet Rose, Shea Moisture 100% Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara, Vanity Planet Forever Young Hot & Cold Rejuvenating Facial Wand and Lauren’s All Purpose Salve.
This firm body emulsion is EVERYTHING!!! Ok it’s mainly everything because it keeps me smelling like roses ALL DAY!!! Once I started wearing this lotion I kept getting compliments on how good I smelled. Most people don’t know but I’ve wanted to be this woman for so long. The one who smells and looks like she just stepped out the house at all times. That just has never been me, by the end of the day my makeup is definitely no longer in place (still working on this) and I def smell like I’ve been walking around New York City all day. BUT NO MORE!!! On top of the amazing smell it nourishes my skin and in this New York winter that’s a huge task. It’s not greasy, where my skin is super shiny and gets all over my clothes. I honestly just love this lotion.
I use this coconut oil so many different ways. My favorite way is to use it to remove my make-up as a “Double Cleansing” method before I wash my face. It’s helped to clear up and soften my skin. Most people think using oil on oily/acne prone skin is a no no. Oil cleansing actually helps your skin to balance its oil production. Your skin senses there’s oil on the skin so it doesn’t produce more. I’ve used it to cleanse my face by it self and I’ve followed it up with a face wash. Both ways work great!!!
I got this mascara at NYFW from a social media vending machine just for tweeting lol. Crazy right?! I haven’t bought Maybelline in a while and I had just tried another drugstore mascara a few weeks prior and hated it. So I didn’t have high hopes for this one, just saying. But I’m so glad that I was wrong. I don’t even know what this mascara promises to do but above all else it lengthens my lashes. It’s a great because it doesn’t get super clumpy. I apply from root to tip but concentrate and few extra applications from the middle of my lashes to the ends.
This device right here has been so instrumental in shrinking my pores. I absolutely love it! The wand has 4 different settings Hot, vibrating hot, cold and vibrating cold. The hot setting can be used to open up your pores to help with serum and face mask absorption. I mainly use the cold setting after I’ve washed my face to help shrink the pores on my face. It’s helped to significantly shrink my pores for tighter, smoother skin. It’s compact so i take it with me when I’m traveling. The battery is rechargeable so you don’t have to worry about having to buy batteries. I accidentally got sent two so i’ll be giving one away, keep reading to find out how to enter.
I’ve literally only had this product for a few days but I already love it. It’s rich, it’s nourishing, it’s thick and it’s all natural. I try my best to keep all natural products in rotation as much as possible. This salve has the consistency of a body butter and leaves my skin feeling amazing. I’ve only used it on my hands and face, usually at night. It’s the perfect consistency for a “night cream” and my face looks and feels amazing the next morning. I haven’t tried as a day cream because it seems too thick to put under my makeup. The website lists so many uses for this one product, I think the possibilities are darn near endless.
I hope you get a chance to try one if not all of these amazing products. All these are in my daily rotation and I hope they can become your faves too.
