5 Things I am Loving Right Now - Winer 2021

By Saturday, April 17, 2021 , , , , , , , , , ,

This winter hasn't been easy on me, so coming up with 5 things has been especially difficult. The day after Christmas I was once again out of work and was off for 6 weeks. I blogged a bit during that time but once I got back to work I found myself exhausted every single night and lacking the energy to stay awake non the less form the words to create a blog post.

My favourite 5 items of Winter 2021

All the following products featured were purchased with my own money, no pr samples here today. 

Caprina Bubble Bath - Orchid Flower Extract

Caprina Bubble Bath

To summarize my winder, I took baths. When I was off I spent my mornings in the bath. When I went back to work I spent my evenings in the bath. 2 hours a day minimum. So that really explains why I this is one of my favourite items. I adore Caprina bubble bath and I picked this one up on a whim. I really love how rich and thick the bubbles are and the light scent. I also enjoy how the creamy formula leaves my skin soft and never dried out.

L'oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation

My makeup is essentially just a tad bit or foundation or concealer these days. Either way this is the foundation I have actually been enjoying. No matter how terrible my skin looks it works magic on it, evening it out and never looking cakey. I have probably bought 6 of these over the years and right now I am using N2 is the shade I am using.

Nature's Bounty Hair, Skin & Nails Gummies

Nature's Bounty Hair, Skin and Nails

This one is definitely a bit odd. Last year I lost about 50% of my hair.  I started to take these gummies in an attempt to regrow my hair. With Biotin, Vitamin C and Vitamin E they are supposed to help hair, skin and nails. Biotin can cause a bit of issue with blood work regarding thyroid levels so I waited until I got results from my blood work before I started taking them. They taste like berries and I really don't mind them one bit. It really is too soon to see if they  have been working, but I feel my hair is not falling out anymore, so that is a big step.

Vichy Mineral 89 Serum

My friend Naomi told me to get this for the hubs and well I kind of went and got a jumbo size after trying his out for a few weeks.  It is a hydrating serum that also helps fortify the skin. Whatever it is, my skin adores it. It feels softer and smoother with every use. Also more hydrated. I can't stop using it and, well that is why it is on this list.

Eucerin Aquaphor Healing Ointment 

Aquaphor seems to have quite a reputation for healing the driest skin. Here in Canada it is sold under the Eucerin umbrella. It is incredibly thick and almost Vaseline like, but it is also very different. While Vaseline is 100% petroleum jelly, Aquaphor is 41% petroleum jelly and 59% other healing ingredients. A little is all I need, I usually apply it to my cracked skin and lips. Since going back to work my skin has been nothing but cracked and bleeding. I usually top it up with some strong thick hand cream. Any time I apply it my skin feels better overnight, with is incredibly impressive.

So there you go, 5 things I really enjoyed this past winter. It was a hard one for me to come up with, but once I started thinking about it, I really do love these items and they were the stars for the last quarter for me.
