These are a few of my favorite things….

10 Feb

So since we have finally started the super fun Glymm Giveaway, I decided to continue with the beauty thing and share with you some of the products I am currently obsessing over.

1. “I Love….” bath and body products.

Especially the shower gel, I use it every morning and it wakes me up and makes me ready to start the day! They have lots of different scents but the Vanilla & Ice Cream is my favorite. The company is from the UK but they sell the products in Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada or at Walmart in the US! You can check out the “I Love….” website here.

2. Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara (not the plumping one.)

I discovered this mascara over a year ago just by accident. I went into the beauty boutique in shoppers drug mart, where they sell the higher end makeup and I went to grab my good ol’ standby at the time which was Dior Show mascara. As usual, I looked at the price and suddenly felt guilty for spending $35 on a tube of mascara, so I asked one of the associates if they had anything like the Dior one and the girl let me in on an awesome little secret. I’m not sure if this is totally true or not, but she told me that Dior didn’t have their brush patented and Revlon copied it for this mascara.

I don’t vouch for the fact this makes your lashes grow, but it does make them thickened and longer while you’re wearing it. They sell this at any drug store and its less than $10. Score.

3. Bare Escentuals Mineral Makeup

I was skeptical when a friend suggested this because I have fairly dry skin and I figured, dry skin + powder foundation = bad combination, but I was very wrong. I now use this makeup everyday. It’s light and doesn’t feel cakey at all but it provides good coverage. Also over time I found that this improved the overall condition of my skin. They say its “so pure you can sleep on it” and it’s true. I don’t feel guilty if I accidentally leave this on overnight.

You can buy it at Sephora!

4. Rosebud Perfume Co. Strawberry Lip Balm

I bought this as an impulse purchase (darn those racks near the checkout counter at Sephora.) But I love it, it smells yummy and goes on nice and smooth without being sticky. The container is also HUGE, like this will last you forever.

Once again, purchased at Sephora.

5. Lush Cosmetics Dream Cream

I love anything by Lush. All their cosmetics are handmade and contain all natural ingredients and they smell freaking delicious. This Dream Cream contains Chamomile and Lavender and calms your skin. If you’re like me and need to slather lotion on as soon as you get out of the shower or your skin will hate you all day, this is the cream for you. It’s super moisturizing and takes away that tight feeling you can get after washing your skin with soap.

You can buy it in store if you’re lucky enough to have a Lush location near you, or you can order it from Lush online!

Those are just some of my favorite products that I use daily. What are your favorite products to use? Drop me a comment because I wanna know! Also don’t forget to enter my giveaway!! Only 6 days left!

    Hi Jill! I am a beauty product junkie so there are too many products I love. I slather on the lotion post-shower too. I haven't tried the I love… products. I generally use either Bath & Body Works, The Body Shop or Cake Beauty creams. I tend to go a little nuts when they have sales, so I definitely don't need to buy any for a while. As for mascara, I use the stuff every day and feel kind of naked without it, but I don't really have a brand I use religiously. I have never tried Revlon Grow Luscious, but I may pick it up the next time Shoppers has a sale.

    I really enjoy hearing about what other people's favorite products, so thanks for this post!
