Weekly Favorites!!

I know I’ve been absent lately and I’m trying to get back to a better schedule for posts, but I wanted to share my weekly favorites with you because this week they are really good😊

Revlon One-Step Volumizer Hair Dryer This is by far one of my favorite purchase in quite some time! It dries and smooth my hair at the same time and unless I’m wanting a super stick straight hair style this is all I have used…no separate straight iron needed and my hair is drying faster too!

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate This Fall/Winter I have been dealing with drier skin-which is weird because I have always had oily/combo skin. It could be because this winter has been brutally cold or maybe the fact that I just turned 41 (eek!!!) and my skin is changing. Regardless of whatever it may be I started using this oil at night after my retinol and I’ve woken up with softer, smoother, flake-free skin AND I haven’t broken out from it either! It takes such a small amount to cover my face and neck that I think it’s totally worth the price.

Laura Mercier Ambre Vanilla Soufflé Body Cream OMG I wish you could all smell this thru the screen!!!! It smells heavenly and moisturizes my skin so well. I apply it after my shower and the wonderful smell lingers on me all day long.

Tree Hut Body Scrub I love to use a body scrub numerous times a week and have tried many from this brand and they all work really well to exfoliate my body. I saw this one and just had to try it…coffee and mint scented AND firming all in one!!!! My only complaint is that the coffee granules are a title messy in the shower and it takes a little extra effort to get down the drain, but the wonderful coffee scent makes it worth it.

Briogeo Rosarco Milk This leave in conditioning spray is a nice lightweight spray that adds a little extra conditioning to my hair and doesn’t weigh down my hair either.

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Cold weather skincare favorites!

Happy Friday!  Here in the Midwest we have started getting some cooler temps and my skin has a tendency to get dry in the winter so I wanted to share with you what I use to help prevent that from happening.  What I’m sharing with you today are products that I have used for a few years and really have helped my skin stay hydrated during the cooler months.

  1.  Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter  This is the most hydrating body butter I have ever used!  It moisturizes my skin, but doesn’t feel greasy and absorbs into my skin really fast.  It comes in unscented (which is truly unscented!) and a few other scent too.
  2. Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil  I have oily/combo skin which breaks out very easily and my face loves this stuff!  It sinks in right away and leaves no oily residue at all.  A little bit goes a long way so this bottle will last awhile.  I also use it on my the ends of my hair, my cuticles and I have even used it on my dogs coats and let me tell you, they both have beautiful fur:)
  3. Aquaphor Lip Repair  I have spent a lot of money on lip balms in a ton of different price ranges and I ALWAYS come back to this one!  I reach for it everyday and it keeps my lips from getting dry.  It moisturizes and keeps my lips looking hydrated and the price tag of under $5.00 is pretty amazing too!
  4. Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Foot Cream  I have a slight obsession with making sure my feet are well moisturized before I go to bed and this cream does the job.  Sometimes I’ll even layer it on a little thick, throw a pair of socks on and climb in bed.  In the morning my feet feel sooooo soft!

Okay, that wraps up my top items to keep me from getting scaly!

I hope you all have a great weekend.

Beauty Finds at Macy’s

I don’t know about you, but I love a good deal!  Free gifts with purchase and extra perks seems to always push me from “I don’t really need anything” to checking the shipping status on a daily basis to see if my stuff has shipped!  (Please tell me I’m not the only person that does this!!!)  Anyway, while on Macy’s website I came across some really good beauty deals I wanted to share with you!

First up Peter Thomas Roth.  With any $50 Peter Thomas Roth purchase you can receive a free 1.7 oz. Pumpkin Enzyme Mask.

Free Pumpkin Enzyme Mask with any $50.00 PTR purchase ($42 value)

Might I suggest trying the Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Pure Luxury Lift and Firm Hydra-Gel Eye Patches.  I’ve never tried these, but I’ve heard really good things about them.  Another item I suggest is Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud.  I have combination skin and this charcoal based mask works so well with my skin.  It helps to pull out impurities in the skin and minimizing my pores.  My skin feels so soft and hydrating when I’m done.

Next up is Clinique.  They are having a Purchase with Purchase (with any $29.50 purchase you can get their “Best of Clinique” set for $49.50 (a $197 value).  This “Best of” set includes 7 items and a pretty traincase.

“Best of Clinique” set $49.50 w/ any $29.50 purchase ($197 value)

One of my top favorites from Clinique that I recommend is their  All About Eyes.  I love this eye cream!  It’s not too heavy and wears well under my makeup.  Another favorite of mine is their Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate.  This Moisture Surge Concentrate has been a HUGE help with my skin during the colder weather.  Since the temperature’s have been dropping I’ve been using this and it keeps my skin hydrated and flake free, but doesn’t make me feel oily.   I’m also a huge fan of their Pop lip colors  This Pop Party set has 6 colors that would make a perfect holiday gift and includes everything from pinks to nude shades.

There are so really good gift sets out right now with Bobbi Brown!  This Satin & Caviar Eye Shadow & Eyeliner Party Ready Palette is just great.  It comes with 3 eye shadows and their iconic gel liner (which is awesome btw!) AND a double-sided brush.  The other set that caught my attention was the 5 Piece Instant Pretty Party Ready Set.  This set comes with almost everything you need to get ready and I have to say I LOVE the blush duo and again gel eye liner too!

Pink Lipsticks

I admit I have way more lipsticks then I’ll ever use, but that doesn’t stop me from buying more.  I have purchased a few lipsticks this month and I wanted to share a few that I really like.

Clinique Sweet Pop

This lipstick is a great formula that glides on smoothly and doesn’t dry out my lips. It has a nice satin finish.

Bobbi Brown Art Stick-Dusty Pink

This lip crayon is one of my favorites! It’s so easy to glide on and wears for a long time on my lips without drying them out. This lipcolor has a nice matte finish.  I look forward to buying more of these!

IMG_4141
High Shimmer Lip Gloss-Pastel

This gloss is great for those days when I have to run out of the door, but still want a hint of color.  This gloss looks great over both of the lip colors I’ve mentioned above too!

Lastly, before I put ANY lip color on my lips I always put this on

Aquaphor Lip Repair

This is my favorite lip product ever!  It helps prevent my lips from getting dry and chapped (even during the winter) and is fragrance and paraben free.  I have these everywhere…one in my purse, my bathroom, my bedside table, my car…seriously they are everywhere!

So there are a few pink toned lip colors I have recently bought and have been really happy with.  I’m always looking for new colors so let me know what you like.

Have a great day!
