2015 is now well underway, where does the time go?! We hope everyone had a fabulous Holiday season and enjoyed all the goodness it brings. We finally got around to taking down all of the Christmas decor a few days ago. A little late this year, yes. I loathe putting away the tree and all the beautiful Christmas ornaments every year. The house always feels so empty and bare once the lights and sparkle are gone. So to make the post-Christmas season sadness a bit more bearable this year, we decided to put out the Valentine’s Day decor right away. Xmas decor came down, Valentine’s went up. Never too early to celebrate! Valentine’s Day is only a month away. 😉
For our very first Beauty post of 2015 I thought it would be fun to talk about some of the products I’ve received and picked up over the Holiday season.
I’m super picky when it comes to perfumes. Either they’re too strong or just don’t smell right on my skin. I tend to prefer scented body creams for daily wear. However, I tried a sample of Jennifer Aniston’s self-titled debut fragrance when it was released few years ago and was pleasantly surprised. The fragrance is clean & floral with notes of Citrus Grove Accord, Rose Water, Jasmine, Violet, Amazon Lily, & Sandalwood (to name a few). I love this perfume for everyday wear as it’s not overpowering. It’s fresh & feminine with a gorgeous bottle to match!
Rimmel London ScandalEyes Rockin’ Curves Mascara – Love the brush on this mascara. It’s large and curvy which makes it easy to reach all of your lashes. The formula doesn’t get clumpy. Pretty good mascara but I still prefer my go-to Covergirl Lashblast.
GOSH Professional Colour Rescue Hair Conditioner – A great conditioner for the price ($9.99). I’ve never tried any hair products by GOSH before, only used their makeup so I wasn’t sure what to expect. My mom and I were both really impressed with this conditioner. It is super nourishing, smells great and actually moisturizes your hair. I also really like the pump-style bottle, very salon-like.
I can’t wait to try COVERGIRL’s new Full Lash Bloom Mascara. We’ve heard so many great things about it! My all-time favourite mascara is Covergirl’s LashBlast Volume Blasting Mascara. I’ve been using it for years so I’m interested to see how this new one compares.
I couldn’t resist when I saw a 3 pack of these Vaseline Lip Therapy Balms on sale after Christmas. I’ve used Vaseline’s Cocoa Radiant Body Lotion over the years and LOVE it. Vaseline Lip Therapy Balms are just as lovely. For the price ($2.99 each), they are shockingly good. I’ve been using them constantly since I got them. They are extremely hydrating and moisturizing, perfect for the cold Winter months. I prefer the Cocoa Butter over the original Vaseline because it smells so good, just like the body lotion.
Who doesn’t love Bath & Body Works candles? $22.50 a candle is pretty steep so I usually only buy them when they go on sale every now and then. Their Fall & Winter scents are my favourite so I was pretty happy to pick up these 2 on sale after Christmas.
‘Til next time Beauties…
