I've been horribly MIA from my blog due to the start of a new job. Trying to get used to sleeping at 10 PM and waking up at 6 AM is definitely not easy! I have to drink some Chamomile Tea just to fall asleep at night. Still a walking zombie when I get to work but it's also nice to work early and leave early. I'm sure some of you could relate =_=
Anyways, I have a few products here that I've been using lately and wanted to share my mini review of them. Enjoy!
Kiehl's Lip Balm in Mango with SPF 4
This is absolute LOVE! I used to be a sucker for those Bath & Body Works Lip Glosses, but I had one that totally went rancid on me after two uses...gross much?! This Kiehl's Mango one smells so good and this leaves my lips super shiny! Feels really comfortable on the lips like vaseline, the staying power is okay, but definitely re-application is needed after eating/drinking. It also has an SPF 4. My only complaint is that it's basically like a small toothpaste tube and I wish they had a round plastic rollerball at the end so it's more sanitary. I hate applying it with my fingers and then getting it all over my iPhone and keyboard. BUT! I will definitely repurchase.
eos Lip Balm in Honeysuckle Honeydew
This stuff is 95% organic and 100% natural and it has the taste to prove it (don't start eating it though!). So they say that women eat about 4-7 lbs of lipstick over a lifetime so I really hope cosmetic companies stop using lead for their lip products (what were they thinking?!). It's not as moisturizing as I'd like it to be but this is great for guys who think lip balms make their lips too shiny. However, the packaging is not convenient enough to stick in their pockets. In my opinion though, I think this unconventional packaging is absolutely adorable and I love the motion of twisting off the cap, applying this round sphere on my lips, and twisting it and locking the cap together. (NERD! haha) Definitely on the expensive side of ~$6 but for the love and obsession with lip balms I would repurchase.
L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream
Last but not least, the infamous Hand Cream from L'Occitane! I find this a bit thick and hard to apply especially when your hands are dry. However, right after washing your hands, the application is smooth and it absorbs very quickly. It definitely is very moisturizing but I'm not sure I like it enough to repurchase. I've been using my Aveeno Body Lotion that comes in a tube because it's non-greasy :)
I hope everyone is doing well, whether you are enjoying your summer or roughing it with a full-time job like myself O_O. I can't wait for the weekend!!
