Hello Lovelies!

It's finally December! The tree is up (has been since November, whoops), the lights are on, and the snow has arrived. It's funny, I had written out this little thing about my December posts being a Not So Blogmas Blogmas, and here with are with my first post of the month. A few days away from Christmas. 🤣

Time has really escaped me this year.

Anyway, not so happy about the snow, but what can ya do? Along with all the holiday cheer comes some dry skin and frizzy, static-y hair. So I've been on the hunt for some new things to try. And I think I found some good products that are worth sharing.

I really like going to the beauty and skincare section of department stores and seeing what kind of discounted brand name products I can find. I happened to find two new items I've never used before.

The first is the I Dew Care Straight Radiate Moisturizing Gold Gel Cream. I was a little confused by this at first, but it had cute packaging, so I couldn't leave this on the shelf. How I used this was probably not the right way. I put this all over my face and applied my foundation on top of it. Which definitely worked because it gave me a subtle glow without making me look like a disco ball. A very real fear because that's one hundred percent what I looked like before my foundation. I think this is probably used as a gel highlighter and you're only supposed to use it in the places that you want, and not the whole face. Oops.

I don't typically use face oils. I have that awful combination skin with a high inclination of oil in my t-zone, so staying away from it is usually better for me. But when I saw this, I figured I would give it a try. I loved the packaging. I thought it looked rather elegant and high end, without the price tag. I've never heard of this brand, but the Truly Organic with the CONTENTS INCLUDE NON-ORGANIC AND NON-NATURAL INGREDIENTS gave me a chuckle.

Using this is quite nice, however. I try not to use too much, but just the right amount has my face feeling hydrated and comfy. There's no itchy/dry feeling like I usually feel in the winter months. I'm not sure how often I'll use this once spring comes around, but for now it's been helping me out. It doesn't smell, which is always a plus!

I got both of these items from TJ Maxx, but I found them at Ulta and linked them below.
