Hello lover. Name that show, and…go! I cannot believe it has already been over a month since my last beauty favorites post. Time needs to slow the funk down. Not much has changed since last month when it comes to my skincare and beauty regime. I was in 100% move-out-mode this past month, and in the process of renting out my home. But, the “for rent” sign is finally out of the yard and new tenants are in! Hallelujah. I am officially moved in with my boyfriend, Mark. Boxes are still scattered everywhere, but it is finally coming together slowly. Even though moving sucks, my organizational skills are absolutely peaking. There is something so therapeutic about tossing out things you don’t need or use any longer. Plus, making sure every item has its place is so strangely satisfying.
Anyway, here are my thoughts on products I have used and abused, as well as some others I have been loving lately.
Fresh Soy Face Cleanser ($15 – 42): This cleanser has always been a favorite in the beauty community, and I have to say, it is definitely for a reason. It is suitable for all skin types, super gentle on the skin and removes all makeup easily. Plus, it has a clean and fresh (teehee, get it?) scent, and does not leave your skin dry or tight after cleansing. I would 100% buy this again.
Too Cool for School Egg Mellow Cream ($36): Basically, I loved this shit. I used it morning and night every single day and truly have no complaints. It hydrated without leaving my skin greasy, left my skin soft to the touch and smelled like a sweet vanilla dream. I felt like you got a solid amount of product for the price, and it had a pump, which is always a bonus to me. I would highly recommend this moisturizer.
Fresh Sugar Lychee Shower Gel ($20): What can I say, I love me some Fresh products. They get the job done, smell great and are sensitive to the skin. I decided to try this shower gel on a whim, and because I love their sugar lychee scent. Although it did smell heavenly, lathered well and left my skin clean, this was the first Fresh product I was just not wow’ed by. I know Fresh is a bit pricey, but most of the time I feel like it is worth it. I did not hate this shower gel by any means, but I believe there are better ones I have tried that were much less than $20. For that reason, I would probably not repurchase this.
Clinique De-Puffing Eye Serum ($32): I hadn’t tried this product in a long time, so when I received a sample from Ulta recently, I gave it another shot. It has a rollerball on the end that massages the serum into the under eye area, providing a cooling sensation, which I loved. Even though it left my under eyes feeling refreshed and de-puffed, it did not help my dark circles whatsoever. Being that is my main concern, I would not try this one again, unfortunately.
Surge Organic Face Polish ($9.85): I really like this stuff! It has ground olive stones that gently exfoliate the skin, and lemon and rosemary oils that hydrate and leave skin supple. Plus, it is gentle enough for eczema prone skin. The only downside is it is sold overseas. I actually received mine in an Ipsy bag, but you can order it via their website or on Amazon. If you love organic products that are great for sensitive skin, I recommend ordering this one!
Clinique Cheekpop Ginger Pop ($23): I cannot get enough of these Clinique Cheekpop blushes! Once I tried one in the shade Nudepop, it quickly became one of my top fave blushes. I bought another in the shade Gingerpop, and it is such a beautiful rosey shade. I love how buildable these blushes are and how natural they look on the skin. I cannot wait to try even more shades. 10 out of 10 recommend.
