A Snow Day: Product Thursdays

Happy Snow Day! If your like me, you are probably so sick and tired of hearing the word snow, seeing snow fall, just looking at pictures of snow makes me want to pack up and move where the snow won’t find me. Summer can not come fast enough. Mainly because I have made some plans for this summer. 🙂 Well I figured that sense I am snowed into my house, it would be good chance to blog about some products that I like to use year round, as well as in the winter months.

In the winter, I am prone to having dry skin. In the summer, I tend to swell. Which are two different extremes. So finding product that are great for all year round. Not only to save money, but I like to feel good about myself all year round. Whether I am dry or swelling up around my knuckles.

1. Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil Light by Josie Maran:

I discovered this gem on YouTube. All the beauty gurus on YouTube were talking about this product. I only discovered one person on Facebook who used this product and raved about it as well. So I went to my local Sephora and purchased the small bottle. When I started using this product, I instantly saw an improvement in my skin. I love this product. I took it on vacation with me, and it is a product that travels with me when I go away for an extended trip. I love how my skin soaks it in and adding it to my skin care routine made a difference. Even spending hours in the sun, I didn’t even deal with peeling skin because my skin was hydrated and using it beneath my sunscreen gave me the added summer glow that everybody wants. The only thing about this product is the price. However, I believe it is worth it. This little guy is almost out, so I am going to have to go grab another one!

I think that when you hear the word oil, it scares people. However, beauty oils, is something that everyone needs to get into. Oil is needed in our skin. I think that we all freak out about the word oil and not even realize that we tend to stripe of skins of it. In other words, oil isn’t a bad word. Here is a link about the product above for some more information.  http://youtu.be/iQAhnD17ZSE

2. Purity one-step facial cleanser by Philosophy:

I have tried so many different facial cleansers, and was not satisfied. This is another YouTube find. I saw Jaclyn Hill talk about this product ( she has also talked about Josie Maran products, including the one mentioned above!) Once I tried this product, it has become my favorite facial cleanser and I am not going back. For starters pairing this with the Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil makes for the makings of a great skin care routine. I love feeling like my skin is clean. After wiping off my makeup and going in and cleaning my face with this product, I feel like it is deep cleaning my skin. Now to go find a fantastic mask to go with it and I will be set! 😉

So I posted about two products today, and next week I am going to post about lotions that I am currently in love with as well.

Now on my wish-list, Lush products. It seems like everybody has been on YouTube talking about Lush, and people are blogging about it. I want to know what the big deal is. I am making a list of products that I want to try. If you have any products that you would like my opinion on leave me a comment below. I will try and get to each product, ( if I haven’t already tried it).

If you are snowed in like I am, stay warm!! If you are in a state blessed without snow, have a wonderful evening!! Till tomorrow Gorgeous!
