I’m coming to you today from my semi-completed office. I say semi complete because I probably should put up some kind of curtain or blind so the creepy peeps don’t slooooowly drive by the window anymore when I’m on the treadmill at night. I literally hate curtains so much (I recently took down the ones in my living room and have been on a search for something that’s decently tolerable…and by that, I mean a valance of some kind that’s coastal without being floral)
Anyways, happy spring everyone! It doesn’t really FEEL like spring in Indiana, but whatevs…at least I know we are over the hump that is stupid winter. I wanted to share some of my everyday faves with you all! I’m going to blow right past the fact that I haven’t posted since last June and just try to immediately do better. I think the reason I suck at keeping up with this is because I want to keep this blog really pretty and let’s face it…to keep it really pretty you need to hire someone that knows what they are doing, to make your blog designs and pages. Oh and I don’t have a DSLR camera, so that’s also an issue. But, for now, I’ll work with what I have….
So lately I’ve been using and loving these AWESOME products!!! These are products I use 3-5 times a week, and some I use every single day. I wouldn’t steer you wrong…these products give RESULTS you can actually SEE!
Product 1: Thieves oil by Young Living
I use Thieves every night with some coconut oil on both our boys’ feet. Supposedly it helps boost immunity and fights off the germs. With my OCD, Thieves just kind of brings a calm feeling to me, knowing I’m helping to boost my kids’ immunity and ward off any of the bad germs they probably pick up at the petri dish we call school. Young Living actually carries an entire line of Thieves products now, because of the popularity of this magical oil. I also use the Thieves spray as well at my office. Bonus: it smells like cinnamon and everyone compliments the smell of my office. Where to get it: if you are interested, please email me HERE and I can get you a discount!
Product 2: Urban Decay’s Shadow Box
I’m so weird about eye shadow! I love certain brands, and Urban Decay is certainly one of them. I love this box because it’s not huge and the colors are so fun! My favorite colors to wear are Baked Cowboy and Smog and I love highlighting with Bordello. Where to get: Sephora or Ulta.
Product 3: Rodan and Fields Lash Boost
You know how there are all these products that “claim” to do certain things and never do? Or, my personal least favorite saying ever “could promote” or “studies show this product COULD”….you get the idea. So anytime I try something that makes claims to move mountains, I’m a skeptic. Enter Lash Boost by Rodan and Fields. Game changer.
I’m not kidding when I say I saw actual results in 5 days. Typically, they say you will see a big result after the first 4 weeks, then a bigger result at 8 weeks and the max result at 16 weeks. This magic clear serum that you put on your lash line at bedtime must be laced with Miracle Grow. I cannot stress it enough…if you ever want to use a product that actually produces REAL RESULTS, go get you some Lash Boost. Don’t spend the money on lash extensions or continue buying the false lashes to glue in….get Lash Boost. Where to get it: Product Link or send me an email HERE and I’ll give you my discount!!
Bonus: each tube is a 60 day supply, but my tubes last about 90 days because after the first 4 weeks, I use it every other day. 🙂
Product 4&5: Rodan and Fields Sunless Tanner + Microdermabraison Paste
You guys….I’ve tried a loooooooooooot of self tanners. I’ve tried the cheapest and the most expensive, the organic and the not so organic and just about everything in between. I fell in love with Rodan and Fields Sunless Tanner ….and as if I didn’t think anything could make it work even better, I started using it with the Rodan and Fields Microdermabraison paste. They are like the best dynamic duo ever. The micro paste makes skin so freaking soft, I can’t even explain it! It seems like in the winter time, everyone is so covered up and I never think to use sunless tanner. But, now that spring is here, I have been using it 3 times a week and I love it so much! No streaks, no patches, no “orange” look. Silky smooth color that melts right into your skin seamlessly. 1 bottle will last you several months and there is even a 60 day empty bottle money back guarantee on all the products sold by Rodan and Fields. (Applause, ladies!) Where to buy: Email me HERE and I’ll give you my discount!
Product 6: Make Up Forever Ultra HD Foundation
I haven’t ever been a huge foundation wearing kind of girl….and looking back on pictures now, maybe I should have worn it more, but to me, it always felt heavy and gross and most of them that I had used would break me out. Granted, that was in high school and I went to the Clinique counter and the lady swore she was giving me the oil free foundation. I’m sure it was a fantastic product for some, but I hated it. About 2 years ago I started hunting for a foundation that would feel so lightweight that I didn’t even realize I had anything on, plus even out my skin tone. I found it with Make Up Forever’s HD foundation. I love it. It’s sheer, but covers evenly and I only use a dime size portion. If you go to Sephora, they have a tool now that will help match your skin to the perfect shade of foundation (that’s winning people). Oh, and this is kind of pricey for makeup, it will run you about $48 for a bottle, BUT know that it will last a long time since you have to use so little product. Where to buy: Sephora
Alright, so there you have it! Those are my current tried and true favorites! Please feel free to comment on this post with some of your favorites!!
