itty bitty beauty bits

by - 9/04/2017

Over the last month or so, I've collected a small number of beauty bits that I really feel the need to share. I've been doing a lot of rearranging in my life. Sorting things, doing clear outs, all that jazz. And that included giving my make up and skin care collection a good old overhaul.

Usually what this means is that I've found some of my old things to love and picked up some new additions to replace the spaces left over.

A favorite that I like to keep on my desk when I'm doing whatever. This has the lovely and very feminine scent of Zoella Beauty's core range and leaves your hands feeling soft and clean. I typically buy most of my hand sanitizers from Bath and Body Works, so having a larger bottle is something I've really enjoyed.

Now this is probably the product I'm most excited about. This is rehab cream for your stressed out skin. Pacifica is a brand that I really love and have been exploring for the last year. They're vegan and cruelty free, which means they're available for everyone to try. This is great for all skin types and it's so so great. I use this once a week at night and in the morning my skin feels brand new. It's a bit pricey, but it's so worth it.

Another gem I found while roaming the aisles of my local store. Don't write off this brand because this clarifying shampoo has been a life saver! I've tried a more expensive one that just didn't do what it said it was going to do. This bottle cost under a dollar and has done everything and more for my hair. If you need something to really get all the product and gunk out of your hair, definitely reach for this one!

I received this little bottle in one of my Birchbox's a while back and never really gave it much thought. It sat on my shelf until just recently and I can't believe I never gave it a go before now! If you've been here before, you'll know that I have thin, fine hair. So finding volume can be a challenge. Using this after a shower has been a treat because my hair dries like it's naturally thick. I have so much volume with this and I love it!

I'm a fan of Maybelline's Lash Sensational, so when I saw this, I thought it was going to be amazing. A curved wand for EXTRA curvy-ness? Yes, that's everything I want in a mascara! I'll admit, the first time I've used this wasn't pleasant. It was super clumpy and just didn't feel right. Giving it a few more tries, it seems to have worked out. It is waterproof, which I'm not really a fan of, but this has given my lashes some extra dimension and I can't really complain about that.

Another one of my testing projects. I wasn't sure if I was going to like going all natural when it came to my armpits. I tend to go for the spray, so this was a different experience for me. This goes on clear and it a gel like stick. It's aluminum free and does hold up pretty well, though it took a few days for my body to get used to it. I had to reapply a few times the first week, but now I don't need too. Depending on how much you sweat, etc, I would give this a go.

My most recent purchase, I decided to splurge and get MAC's Honeylove lipstick. The color is right up my alley. It's a gorgeous nude with a very slight hint of pink. I've been using it almost daily! If you're a fan of MAC lipsticks, definitely try this one. I think it would look great with any skin tone.
