I have to share with you guys some new products I have been trying and have really started to love! (you'll notice that I really like European beauty-products!) I am not a beauty-product junkie as I don't really have the time to take long baths, have a long morning or nighttime routine so I like to keep it to a minimum and try and stick with a product for at least 6mths to see if it is making a difference.
One of my real loves as far as skincare goes is a good exfoliator. I think it makes a huge difference in the health and youthfulness of my skin and I like to use it at least 3 times a week (I put it in my shower and use it when I'm in there) I recently tired this one by Acure and I absolutely love it. It is totally affordable, it is not super harsh or painful as I find some scrubs can be and it gives me such a fantastic glow for days (buy here)
No matter what I have done in the past I have always had chapped lips! I have tried everything - drinks lots of H2O, Aquaphor, Burts bees, Vaseline, and every kind of lip balm on the planet and nothing has really helped until now. Please welcome my two new favorite lip beautifiers! French Girl Rose lip Polish (buy here) and Eau Thermale Avene Cold Cream Lip Cream (buy here)
This lip polish is amazing. It smells heavenly and actually tastes ok too (has sugar and shea butter) but the best part is that it exfoliates my lips without drying them out because it is packed with olive oil, cocoa butter, coconut oil, and rose geranium oil . . . and it looks so pretty sitting on my bathroom counter.
This lip cream is a god-send! I cant explain its consistency - it's like a hybrid between a thick cream & smooth aquaphor but not sticky. It smells wonderful, lasts long and makes my lips feels so smooth, soft and full. And they are not chapping/peeling like they always have YEAH!!!!
Dry hands and dry feet go along with my chapped lips lol. So Weleda Skin Food has always been my go to! It is hands down my favorite cream for very dry skin (I use on my elbows too) . . . I have a tube at the side of my bed and use it on my hands and feet right before I fall asleep (you know after i have check FB and Instagram about 100 times lol) and I wake up with hands/cuticles that look like they just had a manicure! (buy here)
Lastly, and I think I have posted this on my blog before but it is worth repeating, is this amazing Vitamin C Brightening Cocktail! It is by Lumene and you can buy it here. It is a wonderful moisturizer that gives you an amazing smoothness and glow; its almost unreal! It is not sticky and goes on great under make-up.
