And we’ve officially made it to the weekend, and a long-weekend at that! While I wish I could be jetting off somewhere warm and exciting, or even hitting the ski slopes, I will, a las, be working. Mr. RC and I are getting down to the final stages of relaunch, which means it is crunch time for us. Hopefully, we’ll still manage to do a fun thing or two around the city. Please tell me you have more exciting plans than I do!
Before we get into the weekend festivities, though, let’s talk about my three favorite beauty products from the month. Two have to do with skin care (because winter has been a real B to deal with) and one is just for fun. Let me know if you’ve used any of these items before and what products you’re loving as of late.
Enjoy your three-day weekend! xx
Aztec Secret Indian Healing Green Clay // I’ve been using this simple clay mask for quite a few months now. As you can see, a little goes a long way (it barely looks like I’ve touched the container!). Even though this mask is super basic and super affordable, it’s one of the better ones that I’ve ever used. Your face gets super tight and all kinds of tingly and I feel like I can actually feel the dirt being sucked right out of my pours. The only things to keep in mind when using this- it’s very strong so don’t use it too regularly (I use it every other week), and don’t use it right before you have to go somewhere. It will make your face somewhat red and splotchy and it usually takes my skin about an hour to calm back down. Is it worth it? Ab-suh-freaking-lute-ly!
Acure Argan Oil // This winter has been particularly dry and harsh on my skin, so my face has been soaking up any moisture I give it. Unfortunately nothing seemed to be moisturizing quite enough until I tried this oil. My face has improved immensely in the month or so that I’ve been using it. Also, after I rub it into my face, I rub whatever is left on my hands into the ends of my hair and it’s made a huge improvement on my hair being soft, shiny, and fly-a-way free.
Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Lacquer in “Bordeaux” // I’m obsessed with this stuff! Like wear-it-every-single-day (and in all my recent outfit posts) obsessed. It was sent to me as a gift, and, if I’m being completely honest, when I first saw it, I thought the color was going to be incredibly dark….so I came this close to shoving deep into the dark crevice’s of my makeup drawer, never to see the light of day again. Luckily, before it got buried away, it happened to be the only lip product I could find to grab while I was dashing out the door, so I gave it a try and I’ve been in love ever since. The color actually goes on much lighter, almost translucent, in what ends up being a natural-looking shade of rose. While the shine may not last forever, the color certainly does. After eating dinner and drinking wine all night my lips will still be rose-stained.
