I’ve been really savoring the last few pumps of my beloved DHC Cleansing Oil. I didn’t want to risk being left with nothing to remove my make up so I’ve been experimenting with a new make up removal product as my DHC oil comes to end. (I think I’ve got one use left now). My replacement? The Boots Botanics Micellar Cleansing Solution 3 in 1 ALL BRIGHT. (what is that name.) I was actually in Target looking for the Boots Botanics Cleansing Balm but it was no where in site. I’ve like micellar waters in the past so I thought I’d try this instead.
Hair. Frizzy, curly, sometimes more wavy, thick hair. That’s what I’ve got. I’ll never find the hair products that work miracles on my hair because it’s just impossible, but I’ve managed to find a few items that help with hair management well enough for me to keep going back. Any time I’m like “Wow, I’m having a great hair day!” I’ll do the same thing the next day and it’ll look terrible. So if you’ve got curly hair like me, maybe these are a few items you can try out yourself!
Today I’ve got another beauty product review for ya, and no surprise it’s an Andalou Naturals item!! This one I got from my smart shopper of a mom. She knew I liked Andalou Naturals so she picked up what she could find at Marshall’s awhile back. Then, with a stroke of fate, I ran out of my SPF morning lotion, and she had just the right thing. I needed SPF, I need moisture, but I also needed something good for the impending (and now here) summery weather.
So even though I’m a beauty blogger, I try really hard to have a manageable, realistic collection of skincare and make up. I live in a tiny apartment, and the little storage space I have has to be shared with my boyfriend. The last few months I’ve been a little more strategic in my make up usage so that I can get stuff used up and move onto something newer and better. For the spring (and I guess summer too) these are the items I’m trying to use up.
Believe it or not, I am not drunk in this picture. I’m like 15 drinking Sparkling Cider.
Earlier this year I read Lena Dunham’s Not That Kind of Girl. In it, there was a chapter titled “What I Learned From My Mother”. I though it was such a cute idea for a chapter and thought I could adapt it into a blog post. Mother’s Day is the perfect day for it. So here we go, What I Learned From My Mother.
Last week (or two weeks?) I received two new products from Covergirl to try out. I don’t buy a lot of drugstore make up anymore, but I was still excited to see what Covergirl is up to these days. Both are eye related, and eyeliner and a mascara. The Covergirl Clump Crusher is probably my favorite drugstore mascara so I had high hopes. I’m not a huge liquid eyeliner wearer, but this new product is different than the usual so I was interested. Now that I’ve used them both for a little bit let’s see what I think of them!
Tracking favorites every month really makes the months go by faster, I swear. It’s also a fun way to keep track of your life. I like going back and looking at old favorites posts and seeing what I was using then. This month I’ve got all make up favorites! That wasn’t on purpose, I just didn’t really try any new skincare or haircare this month. I brought out all my spring and summer make up, so that’s really what I was falling in love with this month!
