This post should have been up earlier, but when someone in the house gets the stomach flu, all resources get pooled for recovery purposes! Well, it’s now officially Fall and I am actually getting more and more excited for the colder days, new holiday collections and of course new favourite products!
Bath and Body
Cake Lemon Chiffon Velveteen Hand Creme – I’m sure I don’t need to explain why I love this hand creme as you can imagine how absolutely amazing it smells and how wonderfully soft it makes your hands. I keep this right by my computer as it is non-greasy and doesn’t make me feel like I’m greasing up my keyboard like some sort of barnyard hog!
L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil – I wish I can convey just how good this smells and softly it scents my skin after a shower. It’s also a great shaving oil for my legs! The other thing I love about this shower oil is that L’Occitane sells refills for these half litre bottles so no waste!
L’Occitane Firming and Smoothing Milk Concentrate – This has the same scent as the Almond Shower Oil and is a lightweight body moisturizer with more of a gel consistency. I haven’t really noticed any “firming” or “smoothing” effects, but I think that’s might be because I’m not at that stage in my life yet!
Urban Decay Lip Junkie in Naked (Mini) - Most of you know that this comes with the Naked 2 palette and I definitely didn’t buy the palette for the lip gloss, so I was quite surprised when I tried this colour on and realized what a great colour it was! I did not know that it was one of those minty lip plumper glosses so I was greeted with a tingly feeling on my lips that went away within a few minutes. I have been layering this lip gloss over top other lipsticks and I have really liked the end results!
Tarte Vitamin Infused Lip Gloss –I received this lip gloss in the Tarte Value pack I purchased from Sephora back in July and didn’t start using it until well…last month. At first I was scared at how pink it was, but it leaves my lips with a watery, light pink finish that has actually gotten a few compliments. The consistency is also quite smooth and non-sticky.
Burt’s Bees Refreshing Grapefruit Lip Balm – I just love the smell of grapefruit (but, not the real fruit oddly enough) and even though I was hoping this would be sort of minty like the classic Burt’s Bees peppermint lip balm, I still use this all the time when I’m at home.
Everyday Minerals Foundation in Golden Medium – I’m actually a much bigger fan of mineral foundations than liquid ones mainly because they seem less messy to me and I enjoy the lighter coverage. After trying a sample of this foundation back in March, I was amazed at the coverage it provided for something that felt so weightless. The little sample package lasted just under 2 weeks for me, so the full size will be keep me in business for a while!
Redken All Soft Argan 6 Oil – After receiving a sample of this in June’s Topbox, I became a convert as it made my hair feel so soft after applying it to the ends of my hair after showering. I apply it from the middle downward to the ends of my hair so that my hair doesn’t look lifeless at the top.
John Frieda Frizz Ease Sheer Solution Lightweight Frizz Control – I received this in July’s Glossybox and decided to give it a chance last month. So glad I did! This has been great for flyaway days and doesn’t weigh my hair down at all! All I need is just a few drops and I’m good to go!
I have really been enjoying reading about everyone’s favourites over the last week so I hope you all enjoy mine too! Have a great Canadian Thanksgiving!
