In the month of November, I loved using:
♥ Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream -- I am not sure if it was because of my super stressful November, or the change of weather, or a combination of both, but I suffered from bad eczema flare-up on my legs and arms. The itch was so bad, that sometimes it'd keep me up all night :( Normally I use my trusty Cetaphil moisturizing cream during my sensitive skin days, but I just happened to run out of it last month. I tweeted and asked fellow beauty junkies what product they would recommend and Audrey from Audreydao.com told me that a lot of her patients at her pharmacy used to request this cream. There were also some other great recommendations. But since Vanicream was available at my local Walgreens, and I needed the relief right away instead of waiting for an online purchase to ship to me, I decided to try it. It's designed for people with "dry, irritated skin, such as "winter itch" and other dermatologic problems including psoriasis, atopic dermatitis (eczema), contact dermatitis, and ichthyosis". And it's free of common chemical irritants such as dyes, fragrance & masking fragrance, parabens, lanolin, formaldehyde. I apply this in thick layers right after I get out of shower/bath every night, or whenever I feel like I need more moisturizing. It works wonderfully, and doesn't irritate or sting my skin. I'd recommend this product to those who also suffer from sensitive and itchy skin!
♥ Jill Stuart Mix Blush Compact in 09 Little Bouquet -- I haven't stopped using this blush ever since I received it two weeks ago! Out of all four colors, I like the orange blush the best! I have never tried an orange toned blush before, and boy was I missing out! I like peachy blush much better than my usual pink ones :) Besides the pretty colors this blush compact has, I also love how pretty the packaging is! Just using it everyday puts a smile on my face :)
♥ Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 -- This super creamy and moisturizing lip balm saved my lips (and the cut on the back of my hand) during my Thanksgiving trip to the midwest! The colder weather (compared to California) and long hours in the airplanes and the car made my skin suffer so much. The pores around my cheeks were enlarged, the skin around my jaw was flaky, and the back of my hands felt rough, no matter how much lotion I was applying. But my lips did not suffer, thanks to this lipbalm. I kept applying the product, I think I used up 1/3 of the product just on this trip! It also has SPF15, which is a plus!
♥ LUSH Snow Fairy Shower Gel for Body and Hair -- OMG this smells SO yummy! This pink sparkly gel smells like sweet sweet cotton candy. Miss Edna got me this bottle for Xmas :) What I like about this product is that it could double as a shampoo for hair, and leaves my hair smelling so sweet! I can't get enough of this, I think I must get myself a huge bottle of it to stock up since this is a LE holiday item.
♥ NARS Orgasm/Laguna Blush Bronzer Duo -- Laguna bronzer is perfect for contouring! Why haven't I discovered this product earlier! I love love love it! The Orgasm blush is such a pretty color on my cheeks too, but it'll receive its proper love one day, since I am still in love with my Jill Stuart blush compact right now, hehe :p
