5 New Things I loved in 2022

By Monday, January 02, 2023

 2023 is here and that makes it seem like a great time to look back at 2022 and see what I actually really liked.

Today I am going to talk about five items I never tried before last year that I really enjoyed using.

Guerlain Abeille Royale Double R Renew & Repair Advanced Serum*
I got this to review from Influenster and it is just fantastic. Guerlain makes one of my favourite items, Meteorites, as well as a some fragrances and other items I genuinely  adore, but this was my first time trying out their skin care line. 

The pump distributes an equal amount of products from both sides. My skin feels absolutely amazing each time I use it and I really can't say enough good things about it.

NudeSkin by Nudestix Citrus-C Mask & Daily Moisturizer*
I got to try out quite a few of the NudeSkin by NudeStix line. I really enjoyed it because it is just so nicely formulated, but also because they are multitasking items. I went to the NudeStix pop up sale in Toronto and picked up a mini version of some of the items and ordered myself their cleansing balm to try out and another one of this moisturizer/mask.

It is rare for me to repurchase things right now because I am trying to get through my stockpile and already opened products, but the fact I wanted more means it was just that good.

For a long time I was looking for a replacement for my favourite My Lips But Better shade, and this past year I finally found it. This nude balm is pigmented but also sheer so it makes a great colour on my lips. I wrote a whole post about it here.
I got this at Christmas time last year but didn't start using it until the new year. I really love a good cleaning balm, this one is definitely that. It is rich and thick but melts right down when applied to the skin. It removes everything in one go, and that makes it fantastic. It is by far my favourite cleansing balm.
Last spring I saw The Inkey List was having free shipping so I decided to try out a bunch of their hair care products.  Of them, I really liked this one. My hair is pretty fried, especially after swimming all summer, this is a great spray that helps repair it the best I can.

So there you go, some new to me items I really enjoyed using this past year.

Was there anything you fell in love with this past year?
