Hello, everyone! My apologies for such a late September favorites post; I’m still playing catch-up from the wedding.
OGX coconut oil hydrating hair mist—I got this to tame and smooth my frizzy hair, hoping for the best because I haven’t had much luck with hair oils in the past. But this! This will keep my hair straightened and sleek all day, and it makes it look so much healthier. And it smells incredible.
Lush products gifted to me at my bridal shower—My dear bridesmaid Lisa spoiled me with a plethora of Lush products for my bridal shower, namely Mask of Magnaminty, Charity Pot hand lotion, Vanillary perfume, and two bath bombs.
This was by no means my introduction to Lush; rather, she fed my addiction because I hadn’t tried any of these products. I mean, I frequently buy their bath bombs, but she got me some I’d never tried before.
However, the Mask of Magnaminty is definitely my favorite out of everything. It smells so fresh, feels good on my skin, and seems to calm my acne. An A++ in my book.
Gelous nail gel & Gelous ridge filler—Purchased these weekend before our wedding on a whim after reading a Pinterest tutorial, hoping to achieve gel-like nails for the big day because I didn’t want to absolutely destroy my nails with a real gel manicure.
The tutorial claimed it’s like the real thing and will last a whole week, and all I can say about my own results is wow. I will never not use this when I paint my nails. Not only did my polish last the whole week with very minimal chipping, but it achieved that “plumping” effect that many gel-like polishes claim to possess but typically don’t.
Seche Vite fast-dry top coat—This was also suggested in the tutorial. It smells horrible, but your nails will be dry in like two seconds. For someone as restless as me who always fucks up their polish when it’s wet, this is a miracle product. I’m never going without this top coat ever again!
The Balm’s timeBalm® foundation—My new favorite lazy-day foundation. I apply this with a beauty blender and it looks great. It has excellent coverage and stays in place all day.
