We all have beauty products that we buy over and over again. Tried, tested, and true, some things just become staples in our beauty arsenals. They just work! But sometimes, you decide to go outside the norm and see what else is out on the market.
These are mine. I'm still playing around with them so this isn't necessarily a review of each product, just a peek into what I'm using and or doing lately as part of my routine.
Quite a name isn't it? I think it's pretty cheesy, but I'm also hoping this nightly brow boost helps because my brows are too thin for my liking and I need help growing them. Listen up you 13- year olds out there...don't over-tweeze! You will regret it when you're older. That's exactly what I did, and I'm still paying the price. I just bought this last week so I'll let you know what comes of it.
Stubby lashes have been my foe since I was a teen, and mascara is one of my most beloved products to help me look awake. It's amazing what lashes do for the face! I picked this one up on a whim, and it's well...just okay. The wand is a bit curved to reach into the lashline, but the volume and length isn't very noticeable on me. I'm using it during the week for work, but it's not one I'll repurchase. This is one area where I just need to stick with my tried and true! (Benefit and CoverGirl lashblast).
I don't typically treat myself to a fancy shower gel. I love the many options that drugstores carry, and I don't find it necessary to pay for an expensive one. So I don't exactly know what possessed me to order this, aside from the fact that I love the brand but I am so happy I did. The fragrance is soft and very clean. Even Nate likes it, and he's very picky about scents.
I have some bronzers (such as the one pictured above) that have a sheen or subtle sparkle so instead of using them all over my face, I have been using them as blush. I find that they are too unnatural as all-over face powder, but swept lightly on the cheeks, they provide a gorgeous golden glow.
Speaking of a glow, I got a facial last week that I absolutely loved. I've only experienced a facial a handful of times in my life, but this one was particularly needed as my skin has been so dry. I had rough patches near my nose and eyes, probably from allergies and constant sweeping away of tears. Have your allergies been bad this season? I was contemplating getting eyelash extensions, but I don't think I can with watery, itchy eyes! Anyway, the facial was the perfect pick-me-up and my skin today is soft, moisturized, and more even.
This picture from my best friend's birthday was filtered using color, but my skin definitely looks much better than it did a few weeks ago. I think a facial every three months is my new remedy to combat dryness.
