Please forgive me if I am a bit behind on last month's favorites but I have been very sick with an upper respiratory illness than is going on week three now. So frustrating! But I am pulling myself together here to do the fun thing and let you know what I've enjoyed most in October. Maybe something will inspire you!
FACE: Murad Clarifying Wipes For Blemish Prone Skin get your skin soooo clean and are surprisingly great for any skin type even sensitive. I think it is the witch hazel and lemon fruit extract that do it. **
SMELLING: Jo Malone Blackberry and Bay has been my go-to perfume this month. It is the perfect light fall scent, unique and classy as they come. Dry woods and berry smell.
LISTENING TO: Sadly not much. I am musically anorexic - please help me.
BODY: Gillette Venus Spa Breeze 2-in-1 Razor Plus Shave Gel Bars. Believe it or not you really don't need to use shave gel with these razors and they still give a smooth, non-irritating shave. It actually does a fantastic job. I get about four uses out of one blade, which is the same for me as a regular blade.
HANDS: Lancome Absolute Hand. Absolute Anti-Age Spot Replenishing Unifying SPF15 Suncreeen is luxuriously hydrating and attends to the fact that your hands show your true age more than your face even. I always repurchase.
EATING/DRINKING: Chili! I had no idea I had it in me but I make the best chili in the world. Just can't get enough in this cool weather.
WATCHING: The Blacklist. Total suspense and James Spader is awesome, but it does puzzle me why such a girly girl as myself watches so many FBI shows.
MAKEUP a tie:
(1) Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare CC Cream SPF 18 is texture perfect. Creamy with just the right amount of coverage to even out skintone. I use it almost every day unless I am getting all dolled up with full-on foundation.
(2) Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in Stoned Rose is the perfect neutral-non-nude color for me. I swipe it on all the time and this high-end brand feels cashmere soft.
What were some of your faves in October?
** it does contain denatured alcohol which scientists claim is safe and non-drying to the skin. It doesn't seem to bother my dry sensitive skin, but I don't use them every day.
