Recent Purchases – Beauty
I have not sat down in awhile to write a post so I thought why not share things I’ve purchased recently and do reviews.
Kate Somerville Goat Milk Moisturizing Cream
I received this as part of my FabFitFun box. According to the description, it “delivers moisturization while maintaining a gorgeous, healthy glow.” I would agree with that. I put it on in the morning under my foundation and when I wash my face at night it still feels hydrated. Same with at night, when I wash my face in the morning I can feel the product still on my skin.
Colleen Rothschild Radiant Cleansing Balm
I saw this on IG over and over again and thought “Oh what’s the hype about” and figured I would try it for myself. It took me awhile to like it because it was SO different from my previous cleansing process. After a few weeks of using this I noticed my skin wasn’t as dry immediately after removing my makeup. I find it easiest to use this product with the muslin cloth in the shower. Otherwise I make a mess at the sink. If you aren’t willing to spend the full price, they do have a mini version.
L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24 Hour Fresh Wear Foundation
Since having Baby G, my skin has been different. I don’t know if it is hormones, age, lack of sleep or a combination of all. My go to foundation for the last couple of years has been L’Oreal’s Infallible Pro Glow, but now it rubs off or looks patchy by the end of the day. When I saw an ad for their 24-hour Infallible foundation I thought that might be what I need. Not so much. It’s a very thin formula. For good coverage I have to use double the amount of product and it doesn’t last any longer than the Pro Glow. At this point I think I will need to start spending the extra money on a more high end foundation.
Nature’s Bounty Hair, Skin, and Nails Gummies
Postpartum hair loss…it sucks! My hair started falling out about 6 months after Baby G was born. Right around the time my milk supply dropped and I stopped breastfeeding and pumping. Here I am 10 1/2 months postpartum and my hair is still falling out. How long does this last? I have no idea! With my hair getting thinner and thinner I knew I needed to do something. I add Vital Protein’s Collagen Peptides to my shakes (when I have time to make them), but haven’t see any changes. Probably due to lack of consistency. My sister-in-law did chemo for colon cancer and I asked if she used any products to help her hair grow back and she recommended Nature’s Bounty. So far I feel like my new growth is much more visible so I am happy with the product and will continue to use it.
That’s all for now. Being in quarantine means much less beautifying happening. I guess some people have found it a great time to test out new products, but for me, I have enjoyed doing less. Until next post…xoxo Becca
