september favorites



Before you correct me, and tell me that it's October... I already know. I was planning on tell you about my September favorites in September, but apparently that just didn't happen. One of the main reasons could have been the fact that posts centered around  Lil Man's birthday kinda took over the last week, and then there was a week of Fall centered posts, and then there was... Wait! Nevermind. I'm getting off track. Basically, we are six days into October, and I'm finally getting around to it. 

My favorite beauty products in the month of September include...  

This baby is Shiseido's new powerhouse. It's supposed to protect skin against signs of aging, stress & environmental factors but enhancing the skin's natural defense power. In a nutshell, this stuff is incredible! I use it every morning, after washing my face of course, and I can tell a difference. My face is smoother, and I haven't noticed any breakouts. I am the type of gal who gets those dreaded hormonal breakouts about the time of Mother Nature's gift, and there was nothing on my face this month. Nothing!!!

two || Cynthia Rowley Beauty Eyeliner in Silver
I had originally received this in my June Birchbox, and at the time really wasn't a fan... I had only tried it once. The past month I have experimenting a bit with my makeup... and this eyeliner came into play. I really love to apply my eyeliner first, and then my eyeshadow; and by doing that, the silver don't make me look like I'm going to a rave and makes my black mascara pop. I am undeniably inlove with the color. Why? Because it's not black (Lord know I have enough black eyeliners to last me a couple of years), goes on smoothly, and stays through an 8-hour workday.

three || Pureology Colour Stylist Supreme Control Hairspray
Oh man, do I love me some hairspray! But I have rather thin & light colored hair, so I am relatively picky about how I want my hairspray to preform: hold must be amazing, must not leave a residue, can't be sticky, must be able to be brushed out at the end of the day, must smell good & must not weigh my hair down. Ok, I am excessively particular about my hairspray..... Anyways, I had received a sample of Pureology hairspray from Ulta, and fell instantly inlove with it. It met all of my requirements and smelt wonderful!!!

four || Gender Bender Chunk BIG Bath Bar
Back in August I was able to review a handful of products from Perfectly Posh, and I reviewed them for you guys in September. The Gender Bender bath bar was by far, my favorite product I got to review from the company! Why? Because I love me some charcoal cleanser (I use a charcoal face wash everyday), because of the natural ingredients and non-drying attribute. The bar seemed to find that middle road with my skin, and made me feel clean without the "after" feeling of NEEDING to moisturize.

five || Tresemme Keratin Smooth Keratin Infusing Smoothing Serum
You probably recognize this product from my Birchbox CEW boxes review... and what I said then, is the same now- this is hands down my favorite hair serum. I love working it into wet hair and then blow drying. It makes my hair feel so silky- but without that "weigh down" feeling. And it's cheap- like under five bucks!

Have you tried any of my favorites? What did you think?
