Supple, luscious, hydrated, smooth…all words that we want to describe our skin, right? Well guess what, I can help you get those words. For the past few weeks I have been using the DHC Coeynzyme Q10 Cream as my daily night cream. For the previous few months I’d been trying to use up samples and minis of night creams, so now it feels good to have one I’m using on a regular basis, and I think my skin likes it too. DHC is a Japanese skincare brand, and doesn’t everyone in Japan have beautiful skin? I’ve been loving everything I’ve tried from them, definitely a new found brand love.
I can definitely say I’m not a huge fan of primers. I think they tend to feel heavy on my skin, and just seem like an unnecessary extra step in my make up routine. I do however like my make up to last all day, and I have large pores I like to hide. Alas, I have experimented in the world of primers, and have found 3 that seem to do the job the way I want them too. Each has it’s own purpose in my make up routine, but I’d say all get an equal amount of love!
Last month I ordered a new nail polish remover from Vitacost.com. For at least 2 years I’ve been using almost exclusively acetone from the drugstore to remove my nail polish. Yes, I know, acetone is incredibly drying and blah blah. I’ve had bad nails my whole life (flaking, dry…) and acetone wasn’t making them any more, so I just continued. Since I’ve been trying to use more natural products, I figured I should at least attempt to try a more natural nail polish remover.
It’s a sad time. I’ve finished some goodies. In my efforts to use up a lot of extra stash I had around, I’ve ended up finishing some products I really loved. My stash box is busting at the seams. Every time I take something out, it doesn’t seem to get smaller. Luckily, at this point, I have managed to finish up a TON of items I wasn’t too fond of or didn’t really need. My medicine cabinet actually has room in it!
And just like that. It’s October. 3 more months left of this year…that’s just crazy. The weather has finally cooled down, it’s official pants weather. I would’t say sweater weather yet. It was 80 degrees the other day. Some how my favorites for this month involve no make up! I haven’t been trying any new make up lately, and instead have been experimenting more with skincare. I ran out of a lot of skincare last month so this month I needed lots of new stuff. Don’t worry, I still love my make up though!
Somehow I finished 2 cleansers within days of each other, and found myself in a scramble to find something new, and quick. I have plenty of cleansers I want to try, but I had to order them all online, so I needed something I could get where I live. On a trip to Target I noticed a well stocked Burt’s Bees section, and spotted this Orange Essence cleanser. I love Burt’s Bess products, and I love orange. After a quick look at the ingredients, I knew it was coming home with me.
October may be quickly approaching, but it doesn’t mean summer has to be completely behind us. I’m not sure about where you live…but it was 85 degrees in Philadelphia last weekend. Not very fall like! Having to get my shorts back out made me think about ways to keep the summer glow flowing all year long. I picked out some of my favorite products that can keep you looking like you just walked off the beach as we head into the fall!
