I've been wanting to try a charcoal mask for a good, long while. But I just couldn't come to spend the money on the brands I wanted to test out. So when I received some Origins samples from my best friend for Christmas I was so excited. This mask didn't disappoint. It's a deep cleansing mask that leaves the face feeling fresh and smooth. I haven't checked out the price of the full size, but I wouldn't mind adding this baby to my facial mask collection. (A little of this stuff goes a long way, so the sample size should last me quite a while. Thanks, Beth!)
Another Origins product. I had heard some good things about the GinZing line but wasn't planning on purchasing a new moisturizer or cleanser as I'm pretty satisfied with what I'm currently using. (I also wasn't sure how I felt about the smell of oranges on my face.) I've been using this as my morning moisturizer for about a week, and I've been really liking it. The biggest thing is it's light but really moisturizing and the smell of oranges is highly refreshing and a nice, little morning boost.
|The Body Shop // Brazil Nut Perfume.|
I'm surprised by how much I love this scent. While Black Friday shopping in Washington, I was on the hunt for a couple presents and I was caught by the Body Shop's Black Friday sale. I was perusing all the scents but came back to his one. It's rich, warm, and a little nutty. I love a good floral scent, but there is something about this not smelling super girly that I love.
|Revlon Balm Stain // Crush Beguin |
I wanted to wear a pop of color on my lips for a Christmas party we were attending. I originally wanted to go with a lipstick but we were going to be eating dinner at this party and I didn't want to risk looking like a clown by the end of the night. So, I went for a Revlon BalmStain. I have a couple of these and I've loved them in the past. Moisturizing, pigmented, and easy to eat and drink with it on.
