I couldn't resist
...These are a few of my favourite things! Again! so still getting beck in the blogging spirit. I thought I would review some products, most of which I have talked about before, that are still and will always be kicking around in my bathroom and would probably die if they were discontinued. Even though I have a pile of makeup, these are things I use pretty much daily, and are probably kicking around in my purse right now. Criteria for making the list is that I have used them for over a year and still haven't found something I would rather use. Even though most of them are at a relatively inexpensive price point. I buy them, without a discount, even after I am not working in the land of beauty, and I feel lost without them. I most likely have multiple security bottles...I might have a problem.
1. Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Rose
|Mmm moistury goodness|
2. Covergirl Lashblast 24H Mascara
3. Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel with Marula Oil
|Expensive, but I love you forever|
Is it a gel? or an oil? a foam? Its all of the above! I have sung the praises of this before, but this is awesome. It is expensive but I continue to buy it because it is both an amazing cleanser and makeup remover. I went through a period where I was slowly becoming intolerant to all makeup removers and found oils were the only way to go to get off all my aforementioned long-wearing makeup products. But oils have the very annoying habit of migrating into your eyes and clouding your version. Also a lot of the time I still had to use a different cleanser afterwards, or I felt like I needed to use a different cleanser afterwards. I am lazy. This, when massaged in, turns into an oil getting rid of all the makeup and has the benefits that an oil cleanser should have, of attracting the natural oils and removing them. And then when it hits water, it magically (I am saying that a lot this post) turns into a light foam, actually leaving your face without a weird residue. And it perfectly balances the skin out so it doesn't feel dry at all, but just clean. Helped with my acne AND my eczema, that unfortunately sometimes co-habitate the same face. Just amazing. Get samples, seriously. Clarins usually has them for this.
