Products starting from Top Right:
Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil – Great for your entire body, including your hair!
Lush Face and Body Cleanser “Let The Good Times Roll” – This stuff has been in my daily face cleansing routine since the spring. It smells like a Nutrigrain bar! I use it as a gentle exfoliant, cleanser and hydrator.
Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentrate – A cult favourite. I’m sure you’ve been this in many YouTube makeup artist tutorials. This is a holy grail daily moisturizer that works great under makeup or for everyday hydration.
Lush Face Mask “Rosy Cheeks” – This is a new face mask from Lush. It’s a calamine powder and rose clay mask. It smells like rosewater and berries and is targeted to calm and soothe rosy cheeks, and mattify oily skin.
Eau Thermale Avene Cicalfate Repair Cream – A thicker consistency of a creme, this makes a great night cream. I’ll use it as a spot treatment for dry patches as well.
Eucerin Intensive Lip Balm – You’ve seen this in my previous posts because it works so well! Non scented, or abrasive. Very gentle but works like a charm.
Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil – A “French Pharmacy” Classic. The smell is wonderful. A fantastic All Purpose oil that doesn’t leave your skin feeling greasy or oily. Absorbs into the skin, leaving it feeling smooth, plump and glowy.
Burts Bees Hand Salve – Don’t forget about your hands, cuticles and…elbows!
Smells of essential oils and mint. Make sure to rub it in well, a little goes a long way.
And the star of the show…
Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel – This is the best toner I’ve ever used. It’s alcohol free, which means it won’t dry out your skin; Certified Organic Witch Hazel, and Paraben Free. Use this toner to remove excess makeup, dirt and oil. I love to use it after washing my face, before bed or anytime my face needs hydration and refreshing.
Use generously as it’s only $9 for a 355ml bottle. A STEAL.
PLEASE BE SURE TO DRINK PLENTY OF WATER TOO!
