Today I wanted to share a bunch of products I have been loving recently. I am just going to jump right into it because my brain is as fried as an egg in the hot summer sun thanks to the end of the school year coming to a close next week. Let me know what products you’ve been loving lately.
Makeup/ Perfume, and Lotion
Mascara: CoverGirl Peacock Flare Mascara and Max Factor Masterpiece Mascara
I purchased both of these mascaras from Tj Maxx a couple weeks ago, and I won’t lie the first thing I love about these products is the price. These each cost under $5.00, and there were so many popular mascara brands (mainly drugstore) so if you want to buy good makeup at a discount go to Tj Maxx. Both of these provide great volume, length and definition. I do think the Max Factor doesn’t clump lashes as much as the Covergirl one, but the latter is still really good too.
Foundation: Revlon ColorStay for Combo/Oily Skin and Wet N Wild Photo Focus
I love using both of these individually but then one day I decided to mix them together and hello, game changer or better yet amazing coverage that last all day. Seriously I have never been one to mix foundations, but after trying these two on a whim I’m kinda hooked now. Are you a foundation mixer?
Lipstick: Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick
I’ve talked about this in several past post, so I wont be to repetitive since I’ve shared my love of this lipstick more than once. I’ll just keep it simple with my feelings on it: great variety of colors, long lasting, and moisturizing.
Perfume:Garden Grove Perfume I have never been a perfume wearer, but that has changed since using this one. I usually find perfume scents overpowering or I just don’t like how to smells, but this one is simple I don’t know how else to describe it. It’s not strong. It’s just a good everyday scent.
Hand Lotion: Pretty as a Peach Ever since having a horrible reaction to another lotion that required a steroid shot, prescription lotion, and doctors visits my hands have been terribly dry and I’ve been incredibly weary about what lotions I use, but thankfully this on doesn’t bother my skin and it’s perfect to keep in my handbag to use throughout the day. I also have the hand-sanitizer in the same scent.
Body Scrub, Tanning Moisturizer, Body Wash, Hand Soap/Lotion
Body Scrub: I bought this at Ross a year back and honestly I am not sure where to search for it online, I’m sure it’s on Amazon, but I still wanted to share this product because I really like it. I use this before I apply my tanning moisturizer and it helps keep my skin from getting overly dry.
Tanning Moisturizer: Jergens Daily Body Moisturizer and Jergens Daily Facial
I’ve never been one to use fake tan whether it be spray tans or lotions since I am naturally tan, but I wanted to speed up my summer tan so I decided to try this moisturizer and I really like it. I find it a lot less intimidating than fake tan because it’s a gradual tan instead of all at once, so I don’t fear I am going to over do it.
Body Wash: Dove Purely Pampering Body Wash
I’m such a lover of Dove products from their bar soap to their deodorant. I use the deodorant everyday and have used this body wash everyday since buying it. Aside from smelling amazing without being overpowering, this leaves my skin feeling so incredibly smooth. I just feel so clean after using it.
Hand Care Duo: Pecksniffs Apricot and JoJoba Duo (I got this from Tj Maxx & this is the official site so it isn’t in American Currency) Is getting excited about good smelling hand soap and adult thing or just a weird thing? Seriously (I know I’ve used that word a lot), but seriously this stuff smells so delicious and both the soap and lotions are very moisturizing.
Facial Cleanser: Garnier SkinActive Cleanser+Mask and Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cleanser
Both of these products were rediscoveries because they sat in my basket of products I don’t use for a while and then I ran out of the cleanser I was using, so I decided to pull these two back out. I use the Garnier one more as a mask than a cleanser but they work well both ways and the Neutrogena Cleanser is really good too. With school coming to a close stress is high so I need stress cleansers, soaps, sprays everything!
Serum: Mario Badescu Anti Acne Serum
I don’t say this about many things, but this is 100% worth every penny and I will repurchase it over and over again. Any acne flare up I have I will apply this right to the spot and my morning the spot has gone down significantly and within 24 hours it’s greatly minimized or gone.
Makeup Remover: Garnier SkinActive Sulfate Free Cleanser
This is another rediscovery and something I pulled out of my basket of products I’m not using. Don’t get me wrong I love the Take it Away Remover from Estee Lauder, but this is just as good and it’s over 1/2 the price. I love that it’s a cleanser and remover in one so on nights where I’m being lazy and don’t wanna do a full cleaning routine, my skin still feels clean after using this.
Shampoo and Conditioner: L’Oreal EverPure Repair and Defender
I am not one to rave about a shampoo and conditioner duo, but this stuff is so dang amazing. I don’t remember the last time a shampoo or conditioner let alone both have left my hair feeling so soft, free of tangles and frizz, and silky looking.
Hair mask: Eva Nyc Therapy Session Hair Mask
Over the past few months I have started to become a bit more serious about caring for my hair and taking better care of it. I haven’t used styling tools for over 4 years. Not that I think they are bad but because I’m too lazy to use them. Anyways I don’t have to worry about heat protection from damaging of tools, but I still want to keep my hair looking clean and feeling clean between washes, so I have been testing out hair mask and this is one of my favorites. It can also be used as a everyday conditioner which I like. Either way it leaves my hair feeling silky, smooth and run your fingers through it soft.
And that is everything I have been loving. If you have read this far, thanks for sticking till the end I hope you enjoyed it!
