Also, I added some new item on my BLOG SALE!!




So this is just a random post of some of my favorite products I've been using (for the month of June)

Philosophy
Ultra-Rich Body Lotion
Apricots & Cream




Since, my mum's a hair stylist, I get to try tons of different hair care products.
Also, the good and the bad is that I color my hair alot!
I am really enjoying ENJOY (haha)
The shampoo is the thickest/creamiest shampoo I have ever used.
My hair is color-treated so I need tons of moisture.
These definitely make my hair soft and shiny.







I shower with this everyday!
I use it as a shaving gel.
And I use this to clean my brushes (they smell sooo good afterward)



After I wash my face with Healthy Cleanse, I use Cosmedicine's Speedy Recovery Exfoliating Cleanser.
It has DEFINITELY been helping fight my breakouts!!



I LOVE using makeup wipes, and lately I've been using these to remove my makeup before using my Cosmedicine Healthy Cleanse.
I bought these at Mitsuwa.



I use a Deep Conditioner a couple times a week.
This is my favorite lately.
If you like Pink Sugar by Aquolina- you'll love this even more- because of the coconut cream scent in it. Plus it's only $6 and a little goes a LONG way!!




Trying to save money on my starbucks, so I've been using my Nespresso machine alot lately! lol



So, you know how it gets so hot and sweaty in the summer?
Sometimes, if you sweat-off your sunscreen, it will burn your eyes (if the sweat get in them).
Well, with Cosmedicine's Global Health SPF30, this won't happen.
And many people are allergic to sunscreen, but this is for super sensitive skin-types, so practically anyone can use this.
What I like most about it is the BALM-feeling texture- it isn't liquidy and this STAYS ON, no matter how much you sweat!
Also, it feels just like a primer and it makes an amazing primer as well!
Highly recommended.







So, I rarely EVER buy drugstore brand cosmetics.
But, IZUMI (sarah) says she uses the Maybelline Dream Matte Powder, and I've heard from others that it's pretty friggin awesome.
So I decided to give it a shot.
It also came with a dream matte mousse foundie (that is WAY to dark for me)- let me know if anyone wants to buy/swap this- I only swatched it once.
I bought this at Walmart.






let me know if you think this color will match you!
i just won't use it.
hey, it might make a good bronzer too!



Oh and I did my nails!
MAC's Violet Fire Nail Lacquer from Style Warriors.
The lighting was off because I took this with no flash as the sun was setting, outside.
Oh, and I topped it with MAC reflects blue glitter.




See? I told you I wash my brushes with Philosophy's Amazing Grace...


Ahhh clean, fresh brushes- there's nothing like it! lol

Woooow...I agree with Dana---those are a TON of brushes!!!

Catherine said...

WOW - and I thought I had a lot LOL. Love your NOTD too! Such a pretty color!

And ahhhh, so jealous of everyone who can use regular sunscreens. I'm allergic to all the chem ss ingredients so unfortunately I can't try the Cosmed one. =/ I definitely hate how my sunscreen doesn't stay in place when I get sweaty.

Edna said...

Thanks for your June favorites. I used Enjoy shampoo a couple years ago, then stopped cuz I think my hair got immune to the products. I'd love to try it again one day :) Smells super good!

WOW, you have a lot of brushes!! How often do you deep clean all your brushes??
