Now I just wanted to talk about a few of my favorite things lately.
Benefit's They're Real mascara last month. I still really love it. I recently had a sample of Korres Volcanic Minerals Volumizing Mascara. I made my husband take before and after photos of my lashes. I was going to post a comparison the two, but honestly, you couldn't see much of a difference in the photos. Up close my husband liked Benefit's They're Real a little more. I like the smoothness of the application with They're Real too. They're Real is creamy and thick, whereas the Korres was a bit drier during application. So for right now Benefit is my go to mascara.
Josie Maran Argan Oil. They should just call this miracle oil. There are so many ways you can use this: in the bath for total body moisturizing, on your face as a moisturizer/treatment, on your cuticles, on split ends, pretty much for anything dry. You can even use it on your baby as it is 100% pure Argan oil. Leah had a very dry area on her lower belly, probably from the diaper wicking moisture. I had tried several diaper creams and nothing was working. After one day of Argan oil, the red, dryness was gone. I'm not joking. After that I was sold on this product. Seriously give it a try. And if you are afraid of oil breaking out your skin, most of the reviewers say that it hasn't for them. Plus the other reason I love this is because of the Josie Maran Cosmetics company; their slogan is "Luxury with a Conscience". Not only does she have an organic beauty line but she also gives back.
Since I'm celebrating my 5 years on the blog, I wanted to do a giveaway in appreciation for those of you that take the time to read what I write.
