Hello Friends! I hope you’re enjoying your first few days of the new year and getting adjusted to writing the year 2019. It’s crazy right. First, we are partying like it’s 1999, and now we’re heading towards the shallow end of 2020.
Last month I skipped out on my November favorites to do a special post for Blogmas. Now I’m back with all my favorite things that I’ve been enjoying for the month of December. I’ve tried some new products that I’m excited to share, so let’s get into it.
Pacifica, Indian Coconut Nectar Body Mist| I gifted myself [and my daughter] this body spray from Ulta, and I love the scent. I know folks are expecting a body spray to be long-lasting but it’s not. Not too many mists hold their scent like perfume, so if that’s what you want, this product isn’t for you. It’s a light scent that works best right after your shower. This spray is for your body and your hair. I don’t spray this directly on my hair but I do allow a little of the mist to fall onto it. It’s a great swap for when you want something light. If I spray it one after my evening shower, my linens hold the scent and my clothing does as well.
Mario Basescu Lip Balm | I have been using several different lip balms this winter and I’ve found a new one that I’ve been using daily. I love Mario Badescu’s products so it was no secret that I would love the lip balm as well. It doesn’t last all day [but no lip balm does] however it keeps my lips hydrated and I use this every morning in my routine.
Jason Vitamin E Oil | I discovered this vitamin e oil via one of my favorite YouTube Influencers [Page Danielle]. This oil is thick so I use it sparingly on my lips for my night-time routine. I also put a little on my heels and elbows. It’s best to apply this onto damp skin so it can absorb.. After using it for a month, I wondered how I’ve made it through my other winters without it.
Andalou Naturals Cleansing Foam … 1000 Roses | I love the Andalou Naturals product line so it was only a matter of time before I tried this foaming face wash. This wash is fantastic because it’s gentle, it has a light rose’s scent, and it doesn’t leave my skin feeling dry and tight. This is easily worked into my morning routine.
As I Am + Long and Luxe Shampoo and Conditioner | I’ve been looking to change up my shampoo and conditioner for the past few months and I’ve heard good things about the As I Am’s, Long and Luxe line of products. I like the shampoo because it doesn’t make my hair feel stripped, and my curls appreciate the moisture. I also deep condition with the Hydrating Treatment conditioner. With each week I’m loving the texture of my hair, and I’m seeing the results that I want. My hair is softer, and my styles hold for a longer. This will also help me prepare for my locs during the spring.
