Five Things I am Loving Right Now - Winter 2020 Edition

By Thursday, April 09, 2020 , , , , , , , , , ,

I have no words for this winter, except crap. It was crap. I am actually sure most of you would agree with me on this. 

Despite all the disaster and blueness in the world, I did find time to use and like quite a few products that hopefully I will get a chance to blog more about in the future. For now,  here is a rundown of what I loved.

Dermalogica Barrier Defense Booster Ultra Calming*:
Since this winter was hard on my skin, it has needed a lot of extra hydration love. I really love this serum booster because it is light in texture and absorbs quickly. It also really soothes my skin almost instantly when it has to deal with winter wind and temperatures.

Mary Kay Naturally Nourishing Oil*:
Sticking with my dry skin, this has quickly become a staple in my life. It is an oil and squalane blend that you can use on its own or mix into your other products for a boost. I personally have been using it as an oil before my moisturizers. My skin really responds well to it and it has made a big difference in my hydration levels.

Fresh Sugar Lip Carmel Hydrating Balm:
When I got the flu in January my lips got chapt and scabby, which sucked. I found this Fresh lip balm in my stash of samples and gouged into it thinking it was a scrub. I was terribly wrong and as a result, ended up with a very thick coating on my lips. The next day my lips were so much better that I started to use it all the time. I like it because it feels smooth and silky and can also be a mask if you like. Bonus, it smells like caramel.

Sephora Collection Volume On Mascara:
I have always loved coloured mascara, but I find good bold ones hard to find. I used to love a whole bunch of brands about 15 years ago but they no longer exist. So when I saw a sales rep at Sephora wearing bright pink mascara I had to find out who made it. When I learned it was Sephora Collection I immediately picked up one, and then another. 
I have 05 Violet On! (which is really pink) and 04 Green On! (Which is a teal shade). They are a bit thick in the formula but have complete colour coverage. I get a compliment every single time I wear them, even from men. 
Revlon Photoready Candid Antioxidant Concealer*:
Since I haven't been wearing much makeup this winter concealer has been my friend. I have been using this one for most of the winter as my go-to concealer. It has a creamy formula that blends out well and a doe foot applicator. A little blended out under my eyes and around my nose and I am good to go in the mornings. 

There you go, 5 things I am loving right now for Winter.
