beauty product swap outs


sometimes it’s hard to break away from your tried and trues.  i did a little branching out and found a few beauty products that i think i might be adding to my trusty list of favorites.

here is what I ‘ M  L O V I N G  as of late + which products i’m switching out for
(at least for now – cause they are  still on my forever faves list)

swedish dream sea salt soap / giving good old dove soap a rest.  this sea salt soap smells amazing + exfoliates with it’s bits of sea salt peppered throughout.  bonus, it’s great for guys + gals!

by terri color-fix cream eyeshadow / i’ve used my bobbi brown cream shadow stick down to nothing.  it’s like the fastest way to apply shadow and eyeliner all in one.  i’m loving by terri’s version in the color ombre blackstar.

one love organics cleansing sponge / i’ve been totally ignoring my expensive clarisonic device ever since i laid hands on these affordable konjac sponges.  i love this little sponge so much, that i look forward to washing my face at night (with my fave face wash).  it’s my favorite way to get glowing skin.

jouer matte moisture tint / i’ve been using laura mercier tinted moisturizer forever.  it will always be my fave.  however, lately i’ve been wanting a wee bit more coverage.  i’d never heard of a matte tinted moisturizer and normally would always go for the opposite of that, but this product totally surprised me.  it really evens out my skin tone giving an overall smooth texture and still lets the natural glow shine through.  so far, i’m loving it!

have you tried any products, lately, that you are loving or have surprised you?  any, on your list that you’ll never switch out?

    That sea salt soap sounds wonderful. I switched out my shampoo for natural ones from LUSH. 1or 2x / week I use their sea salt shampoo and it smells gorgeous. I switched my mascara from Lancombe to Revlon and it’s been fine, not much difference. Thanks for your recommendations!
