**I know I’ve missed the last two Gimme Five Friday’s (and countless Tuesday Reviews) but I’ve been so busy and now I’m on a long staycation for our one year anniversary. I promise your ‘regularly scheduled programming’ will resume when the vacation is over!**
Do you still love and use the things you did a year ago? Or have you moved on?
Let’s take a look back at my favorites from September 2015 and see what I’m still loving!
that is some fantastic photography
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Rose Gold – I still love this as a cheek color. I refer to it as a “back blush” which is a term I probably made up entirely for myself. It is a little too shimmery for the apples of my cheeks, but perfect for adding color and glow to anything behind my cheekbones – ya know…a back blush. My current favorites featured some new blush shades from Becca that I am OBSESSED with.
Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium – Still VERY much obsessed with this fragrance. It has notes of Coffee Accord, Orange Blossom, Cedarwood Essence, and Patchouli Essense. Very warm and “adrenaline-rich” but also sweet, a little spicy, and maybe floral? I don’t know. It’s everything! Husbo got me a 10 mil spray for Christmas, which is now gone, and I’m gonna need a bedazzled limited edition bottle next!
Peter Thomas Roth FIRMx™ Peeling Gel – To be honest, I don’t think I’ve used this SINCE last September. I just have too many other facial things to play with, and this one isn’t yellin’ at me. Ever since I got my Clarisonic, I don’t feel like I have that much ‘dead skin’ that needs to be sloughed off anyway.
Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer – This is still one of the best primers/bb creams/light coverage foundations I have ever tried! If you have oily skin or texture you need to cover up, give this stuff a try. It stays put all day long, can be used alone because of the tint, and has that added bonus of SPF! I just wish the color range was better – I don’t reach for it as much simply because it’s difficult to match.
Dr. Brandt Skincare Pores No More® Cleanser – Once this sample was through, I never purchased the full size, and honestly I can’t remember what it was like! Maybe I should give it a shot again. (But in response to @drbrandt on my insta post above- I DID try the primer and I love it! One of my faves.)
Ursa Major Fantastic Face Wash – If you want to know how I still feel about this face wash, just go back through my September Faves, because I purchased a full size and I’m STILL loving it! I gets sooo foamy with my Clarisonic- I love it!
Thanks for reading, pals! Stay safe x dry.
