The things I have been reaching for this week
August has been quite a mix of skin care and make up experimenting
Khiels Are Earth Feep Pore Daily Cleanser:
Current daily exfoliator. The texture of this is amazing. If you are scared to scrub your face everyday, but want to amp up your weekly scrub, try this. It's not your typical scrub partical. It's soft, like French clay mixed with water, as if super soft non course sand. It's hard to explain, this fizzles more than foams, but again, another product which does not seem to be doing the job for my skin at the moment. I am also using the corresponding clay toner, and have the same feeling as the cleanser. Khiels, a brand I want to love, and keep trying, but I just get no love back...
Just my intiaial reaction, it's only been a week, I think skin has to get a bit worse before it get's better. Constant purging, fun...
Origins Get out of Trouble Mask
Current mask of the moment. This is not bad, but I prefer Khiels Deep Pore Cleansing Mask
Kind Bars: Food obsession of the week. I have now tried about 9 flavors and anything with an orange edging as a wrapper get's a huge thumbs up from moi!
Origins Dr Weil Mega Mushroom Lotion
A new product in my regime for sensitive skin, this is not bad, but I just don't think it suits my skin at it's current state, and may blog sale this, which is sad.
I swear Origins, I want to love you, but you just hate me, don't you?
Fragrance of the moment is my new Fresh Citron de Vigne
Inspired by Champagne. Crisp and clean with feminimity.
I wish the lasting power was longer on this, I really do. I would buy the biggest bottle they sell if it did
My Current Go to Bronzer
From the Body Shop, review is coming up!
The Body Shop Honey Bronze Bronzer - Limited Edition for Summer
In short this is amazing for people of paler complections and I am in shade 03 Medium, and could even go for the darkest shade at my NC 25 state.
Every girl needs a little Chanel
Winter Night's Palette. I was stuck between this and Regards Perle. I ended up with this and could not be happier. I have not even had thoughts of going back to get Regards Perle because I am too smitten at the moment with this beauty. For office ladies out there, the below is a nice investment. Demure sophistication is how I describe these shades
And the Pencil to go with it
Black Jade, great name. A black with a shimmering green undertone. Not like the new MAC Smolder, this green is more dark emerald and add's just the right amount of hue to the waterline to really make brown eyes more bambi like. Does smear a bit though. Something I did not know, all Chanel khol pencils come with a sharpener. I thought that was a nice touch haha
Sabon Hand Cream in Lavender and Rose (Violet Shown in picture)
I have been taking out all my best hand creams because I got tired of waiting to use them. I bought these things to enjoy not stare at. Sabon makes amazing body products, and their hand creams smell subliminaly divine
Dior Apricot Clouche Gloss 436
My only Dior gloss but it's amazing! Non sticky, perfect shimmer ratio, peachy apricot color laced with a tinge of pink. I have been so satisfied with this, I have not even felt a need to buy another Dior gloss until this is complete. Can't expect much less from Dior. Everything I have tried from them has been a complete winner
Sephora Rouge Lipstick in R15 Decolette
This color looks natural but still stands out, I hope that makes sense. Another color to add to my appropriate for work pile. Quite creamy in texture, but make sure to use balm first, it does seep into lines, eek
Winter Nights, Bronzer, Sephora Lipstick, Dior Gloss
