It’s been awhile, so I thought I would talk products and routine today. I use the term “beauty” loosely.
The final product – a tired 50 year old woman:
One of my goals this year is to use up what I have before buying new stuff. Tom rejected the Costco shampoo and conditioner below and I don’t love it, either. But, I will try to use it and be happy.
I love this Dr. Teal’s Relax and Relief and it works well for my evening shower routine. I take my shower after dinner and wash my hair every other night. When I don’t wash my hair, I still take a “body” shower because I just like to get in my sheets “clean”. I also take a quick morning body shower every day because again “clean”. I also just find it easier to do my saline and face washing in the shower. But, I am super, super quick. Why am I using so many quotation marks?
Love, love, love both of these products! I swear by this saline spray and use it twice a day.
I am “saving” my self tanner now because I can be January pale right now. I use and love Lubriderm. It really helps with winter dry skin.
I really like these eye drops and they do make the whites of your eyes whiter. I remember when my twins were little and one of them was asked what their eye color was; he said, “white”. Bahahaha!
So, The Ordinary products are very reasonably priced, but the facial wash and the moisturizer didn’t last very long at all. I do love both of these serums, though and they will last forever. I am really new to serums. Any serum people in the house?
On the non wash the night before hair days, I use this and love it.
I use a 1.5 inch barrel regular old curling iron. I never dry my hair since I wash at night.
I curl and then use this comb and this hairspray. Sometimes if my hair is too clean, I use the Dove to help hold my style.
I clip the top hair up and curl the bottom and then do the top.
This looks really messy and I need to clean it up, but I am still loving my Seint makeup system.
You use their brush and blend all of this together!
I am loving these lip crayons lately.
I really love this blush and will apply it on top of the Seint sometimes.
It has a nice subtle shimmer.
Remember how much I love cream eye shadow and specifically Charlotte Tilbury? Well, I found that Burt’s Bees is pretty darn good and much cheaper and can be found at your local drug store. So, I do that on the lid and then line with one of the powder shadows in this set.
I love this NYX brow and I’m using Grande mascara right now but I am getting ready to try Thrive Causemetics mascara.
You can see my eyes here:
This is what I use for undereye somedays but somedays I don’t do anything. Suggestions welcome!
I’m really content with most of my products for the first time in forever! But, I always love to learn about new things, too.
What is your ride or die product? Like, if you run out you might have a panic attack product? Are you a product junkie? I wouldn’t say that I really am. I find it overwhelming to walk in Ulta and Sephora. I don’t know where to look or what to do.
