November Favorites!

1 December 2012

It's that time of the month again (no, not THAT time of the month), it's the time for monthly favorites! Wow December already, the month of festivities and happiness and a brand new month to try the latest beauty products! November was a really big month for me, it was the month I finished my HSC and the feeling was exhilarating believe me. I also tried out a variety of products that I actually ended up loving!

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation: I will do a detailed review of this foundation soon but to sum it up I absolutely LOVE this foundation! Especially for the summer months where you don't want to wear too much makeup. It leaves a luminous dewy finish and it certainly makes your skin look more healthy. It blends like a dream and is great for people with normal to combination skin. This foundation gives light to medium buildable coverage so if you prefer a heavier coverage (think MAC Studio Fix) then this may not be for you.

Sebamed Face & Body Wash: I actually got sent a sample of this product and I was a bit skeptical to try it. I have very sensitive and acne prone skin and my skin wasn't looking it's greatest when I received it. I've never heard of the brand before and the product was also very heavily fragranced. I left it in my beauty stash for about 2 months before I broke out like crazy and thought "what the heck, what have I got to lose?" so I tried it out. INSTANTLY my skin felt so much cleaner and so much smoother and overtime it got rid of all the crazy bumps on my face. This can also be used as a body wash and I've read some reviews stating that it makes a great shampoo but I can't confirm that since I've only used it on my face. This product is great for sensitive skin.

Goldwell Deep Cleansing Shampoo: I got a haircut a few weeks ago because I had so many split ends, my hair was falling out and it was dry to the core. All this are results of heat styling so try putting away the straightener for days you don't really need it. I made a promise to myself and my hair that I'm going to take care of it and prevent it from getting extremely damaged. I actually discovered this shampoo through my sister who loved it so I gave it a try and the results were evident: silky, soft hair with no product residue left behind. My hair had so much more volume and I couldn't stop touching it! Before this shampoo I was using the Sunsilk shampoo in the orange bottle and that left my hair feeling weighted and disgusting. I definitely recommend this shampoo, it is definitely on the pricey side (Hairhouse Warehouse: $20) but you can purchase it for much cheaper at Beautybay.com ($10). Give it a try and I promise you won't regret it!

Tangle Teezer: You all know how much I LOVE the Tangle Teezer so I won't bore you again. But if you want to know then you can read my review here.

Carmex: Do you suffer from chapped lips? Do you suffer from dry flaky skin on your lips? Do you lips burn because of cold wind? Yes? Don't worry I hear you. That why you buy Carmex! This product, just like the shampoo was introduced to me by my sister when I was suffering from extremely dry lips around the winter time. I had an extremely bad cold and my lips were disgusting and I thought nothing will cure them. Vaseline wasn't doing the trick so when I tried Carmex I thought it was a miracle! My lips were so smooth and soft. I will warn you though, the menthol in this product does make your lips have a burning sensation but that doesn't bother me too much. So thank you Carmex!

Ardell Heated Lash Curler: Let me tell you something about this eyelash curler, it has a special padding which heats up instantly and lifts your lashes for va-va-voom volume. I've never been very blessed in the eyelash department unfortunately so normal lash curlers never did the trick. This lash curler on the other hand makes sure your eyelashes stay curly throughout the whole day! Sometimes when I want to go mascara free I just curl my lashes and I'm out the door. This would be especially great for people with straight eyelashes or people with hard to curl lashes.

So that's it beauties! Another month has passed us, I wish you all a happy, safe festive month and I hope you get all the Christmas presents you've been wanting. Now off to another month filled with great beauty favorites!
