Favorite Beauty Finds




There are some recent finds (and some older ones too) that I have been addicted to lately when it comes to heath and beauty:
I have not made the switch over from my regular beauty products to all natural makeup, but I have done so with my face wash. I love the entire Burt's Bees line. It is available in convenient places and is gentle on the skin but gets the job done. My favorite is the rosewater toner. I have always heard amazing things about rose water and now I know it's true. I feel so much cleaner with this toner than any other toner before. 
Ever really thought about all the junk and germs on your toothbrush? It's gross to think about. The mouth is disgusting. This Vio Light egg shape toothbrush sanitizer zaps all those gross germs so that you get a totally clean toothbrush the next time you dirty it up again. My husband and I use it all the time.
I've been reading up on aromatherapy benefits and decided to get a nebulizer. I've had it for 3 days and love the thing. I first used a Breathe Better mix and really could breathe better. I even craved it the next day! It's currently puffing out some lemongrass lavender essential oils and smells so invigorating.
I have had the worst time finding a mascara that doesn't smudge under my eyes by mid-morning. It's become a major source of frustration. I tried the combination of Clinique's new lower lash mascara and L'Oreal's Double Extend Lash Extension mascara...and am so pleased. The lower lash mascara has a tiny wand that makes those little lashes extra long and the L'Oreal stays on so well and extends my lashes so long. The best thing is that it comes off with a cotton ball and warm water. It's a new "tube" mascara too.
I paint my nails a lot and hate waiting on it to dry, like I'm sure most people do. Sally Hanson's Dries Instantly top coat helps me be more patient with the process because I can move around and go about my business in about 5 minutes. It says 30 seconds but to be safe, wait a little longer.
The Kiehl's Rosa Arctica eye cream was my splurge. I knew I needed to add an eye cream to my beauty routine since I'm now in my late 20's and looked at several reviews on Birchbox before deciding on this one. It really did smooth out my skin and is so soft and easy to rub in. I've used it for a little over a month now and it looks like a new vile. A little goes a long way.
