It feels like I just wrote one of these, and January has ended already!
✔LUSH Rub Rub Rub Shower Gel -- This is another LUSH products that could be used for both guys and gals since it has a somewhat neutral scent that's not extremely sweet and girly. This shower gel actually has exfoliating granules mixed in, which lightly exfoliates the skin. Even with the exfoliating granules, it foamed up nicely on a sponge.
✔Korres Body Scrub in Fig -- Just a very typical body scrub with somewhat coarse exfoliating bits mixed with a creamy base to help get rid of dead skin on your body. Even though it was a tiny tube, but it lasted me a long time, since you only need a little bit each time. I try to exfoliate my body about once a week in the shower.
✔Mandom Morning Hair Fix Water (Floral Fragrance) -- This is truly a life saver in the mornings when I'm in a hurry to get ready, but my long hair just had to tangle up and make it so difficult to brush through. What choices do I have? Either be rough and try to break a few hairs and pull through (a big no no!), or just spray this hair fix water and it works magically to help detangle my hair! It also leaves my hair smelling nice. The spray bottle is really easy to use and sprays just the right amount of products each time.
✔PERT Plus Thick 'n full 2 in 1 Shampoo plus Conditioner -- Not a big fan of the smell, but it does work -- I get soft and fluffy hair the next morning. I still use a conditioner after the shampoo, normally those 2 in 1 products do not have enough conditioner for my long hair.
✔e.l.f Makeup Remover Cleansing Clothes -- I stocked up during the 50% sale. At $1.5 for 20 pieces, it's such a great deal. I use these cleansing clothes to remove makeup on my face first, and then I use Clarisonic brush + Philosophy Purity Made Simple cleanser for a more thorough cleansing to make sure I get rid of all traces of makeup/dirt from the day. And yes, I clean off my makeup as soon as I get home so I can have clean face for the rest of the evening, and can do face masks, etc before I go to sleep.
✔Up & Up Eye Makeup Remover -- The Target version of the Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover. Does just as good of a job, but costs less. Yes please!
✔Bath & Body Works For Heaven's Sake Super-Softening Oil-To-Cream Bath & Shower Wash with Sake -- This is a very interesting product. It has a similar consistency as those face cleansing oil we use to remove makeup. You know, the one you apply all over your face to dissolve makeup, then use a little bit of water to emulsify the product until it turns milky white, and then rinse off with ease without the greasy feeling. Just a little big of this oil makes a big foam ball on the shower puff. It also left my skin soft and without any dry feeling. It also smells really nice, a soft light fragrance (not exactly sake though, imo).
✔Sally Hansen Beyond Perfect European Pedicure Callus Remover --Neat little product for at home pedicure. It is extremely easy to use. I just turn off my shower, and apply the gel all over my heels, wait for a minute and rinse off. It is suppose to help exfoliate and smooth the feet and get rid of calluses. It helps my heels to stay soft. After I rinse off, sometimes I'd use a callus stone to further exfoliate and smooth away any rough spots. This is especially a nice treat in the summer, since the gel felt cooling and relaxing on. And summer is when my heels get more rough from wearing flip flops.
