While I am waiting for more Memebox to come, here are cosmetics I love this month!
When I posted this yesterday, I was surprised how little I loved.... That was partially because I kept some at work! Including office favorites as well now.
If I am going outside, it's likely that I will be wearing some sort of sunscreen rain or shine. This puts me on a hunt for a lightweight and effective sunscreen that won't smell bad and won't clog my pores. And... This is IT! Yes, it's expensive ($45 or so) and no, yes, it's light like light moisturizer, has no sunscreen odor, and generally fantastic on my face. love!
From Memebox, this astringent gel has replaced my toner. Despite its name, it does not sting at all! It quickly gets absorbed into my skin and feels fantastic. Retail is $34 according to Memebox, however it is not sold on their website. I must find something else equally fabulous or track this down somehow.
Now, not so good items I tried.....
I got two samples of this from Birchbox, for October and November. This feels great at the time of application, but dries my lips out even worse than they started. Not a big fan. Why did I end up with two?
Barebox Organic Facial Cleanser. This smells fantastic, and its oil based cleanser. Super greasy texture did not fare well with me. barebox says its currently producing non- greasy formula and I would love to try that out!
Philosophy miracle worker foundation SPF 30. This is shade 4.
First of all, the pump applicator dispense way too much product all at once. If you buy this, pump gently and use sparingly!
The product itself is not bad and actually pretty good; however, at this price range ($40), I expect great things. ( no, I don't expect miracle in a jar by the way). Coverage is fine, tone is bit ashy for me, texture is... Like other foundation with no wow factor.
Aloevella Wrinkleless cream. This did nothing to me. Just heavy moisturizer.
Verdict: I have more products I didn't care for than I liked, this is because I am very picky! Having found a good sunscreen for my face and good gel is really great, so I am calling this a win month ;-) Plus I found a few more love items at work! See below.
I shot them together to show how tiny the Vaseline rose lip balm is!! I just love this adorable packaging, and bought a special edition Birchbox just to get this. I don't like dipping my finger in a jar however... This makes my office happy!
Middle item is a winter edition hand sanitizer from Bath and Body Works in salted caramel. It smells delicious and I couldn't help it!!
Lastly, large bottle is a hand lotion with the most delicious scent in grapefruit and mandarin! I love anything citrus and they nailed it. I have this big thing in my office so my BF won't use it all by himself! I plan to take this home eventually to share though.
