Things I’m loving lately including a new body wash, body lotion, eye cream, Beautycounter peppermint lip conditioner, and a new coat!
Happy Friday! This week has been nuts – I’ve had stuff every night this week (’tis the season!) and I’m so excited to have zero plans tonight. I went to the ballet on Wednesday night with my friend Carolyn.
And Tommy’s work party was last night. I LOVE his coworkers so it was a really fun night.
We have holiday parties this Saturday and Sunday, both of which will be fun, but it’ll be nice to have some time tonight with just the two of us. (Ahem, three of us. Sorry Maizey, we love you too.)
Alright, let’s get onto Friday Favorites including a bunch of new skin care stuff and a new coat.
Since I got hooked on Beautycounter’s tinted moisturizer, I’ve made a conscious effort to switch to safer skincare products as I run out of my current items. I placed a Beautycounter order a few weeks ago for a number of things and I’m absolutely LOVING most of the things I got. I’m not 100% sold on their eye shadow, but maybe I picked crappy colors? And I’m still not ready to give up my retinol, but I can take baby steps, right??
This stuff smells AMAZING and a little goes a long way. Enough said.
For some reason, body lotion was the product that I was freaked out about the most. Every time I was slathering on my Vaseline body lotion, I just felt so uneasy about all the harmful stuff in it that I was putting on my ENTIRE body. I don’t think I’m one to get all hung up on stuff like that, but I’ve been amazed at the peace of mind that’s come from switching to Beautycounter’s body lotion. Plus, it smells great and isn’t greasy at all.
I’m super picky about eye cream and was NOT expecting to like this. Well, I was wrong. I got the Rejuvenating Eye Cream and it instantly brightens my dark circles (even after a very late night at the holiday party last night!).
THIS STUFF IS AMAZING. It smells (and tastes!) great and it keeps my lips super hydrated. I have horrrribly dry lips in the winter (don’t we all?), and I always feel like other brands of chapsticks or balm dry my lips out more. This seems to actually help the dryness rather than just mask it.
I’m going to place an order today with a bunch of these for some post-holiday gifts! I like giving presents to friends after Christmas for a little post-Christmas pick-me-up/Happy New Year’s surprise. Plus, it allows me to be a little behind the game. 😉
For the last couple years, I’ve thought to myself, “I REALLY need a new peacoat” but I was always too cheap to replace mine. Never mind that the lining had a ton of holes in it and my seamstress had told me she couldn’t really do much to repair it anymore after 4 years of repairs. Oops. So I finally broke down and bought this new coat and I am in LOVE. It’s not cheap, but considering I paid $300 for my last peacoat from J.Crew and it lasted me 8 years, I think it’s an item worth investing in. This Cole Haan one is SO much better than my last J.Crew one too. The material is much softer, it fits better, and it’s warmer; I can’t recommend it enough! I got camel because I’ve wanted a camel coat for years and I just bought the black coat in this post, but it also comes in black and burgundy (so pretty!). It’s on sale right now too!
Hope you have a great weekend! Stay warm out there!
