My Current Favourites: Skin Care, Beauty, Hair and Fashion

Follow by blog with Bloglovin

I wanted to do a favourites for the month of April. But, by the time I found myself with time to put this post together, too many days had gone in May and it was no longer appropriate.  So I decided to make it a current favourites post. Without further ado, here are the things I am  enjoying at the moment.I love the idea of making great product recommendations so that you guys do not have to go through all the trial and error that I do.

Skin Care

I have two skin care faves and the first one is  the Neutrogena Deep Clean Long-Last Shine Control Cleanser Mask.

I have been intending to buy a mask for the longest time because I needed something to suck the excess oil, white heads and black heads out of my pores. I ran out of cleanser recently and was looking to repurchase my usual cleanser and spotted this two in one mask and cleanser and since I love a deal, I had to get it. It’s two products for the price of one! And I have been loving it so far, even though I have only used it as a mask once, I have been cleansing my face with it two times a day for about three weeks and its a great cleanser. It does have tiny beads in it but it is not abrasive at all and best of all it cleanses without drying out my skin.

My second skin care  favourite / obsession at the moment is the  new Vanity Planet Spin for Perfect Skin Brush.

Hands down it is the best decision I have made for my skin. I have been using it for about three weeks and I am loving the changes in my skin. I am going to do an in-depth review later on with before and after results etc.

Hair

I like everything that I use in my hair but I have been loving the African Pride Shea Butter Miracle Moisture Intense Silky Hair Moisturizer.

Funny enough this moisturiser is for mixed textures, so transitioners and naturals but it works great on my hair and leaves my hair feeling really silky. To think I almost did not buy this product.  I looked at in the supermarket and left it but had no choice but to go back because I was completely out of moisturiser and it was a Sunday when all the beauty supply stores were closed. I have been pleasantly surprised and I am happy about that.

Beauty

I have one beauty item to share and it is the Cover Girl Clump Crusher mascara.

This mascara gives me volume and separates my lashes like no other. I hate the look of clumpy spider lashes so this one is perfect for me because it make my lashes stand out without clumps.

Fashion

I have one fashion related Item that I am really enjoying at the moment and it is my Aldo Tote Bag that I bought on Thredup.com for cheap!

It is just the perfect wear to work bag. It has lots of compartments so I can organise and separate everything I want to carry and it is big enough o hold my laptop. Whats more I love the snake pattern details and the gold hardware.

Side note:  if you do not know about Threup.com yet you need to check it out. It is an online thrift store that sells pre-owned, brand named clothes and accessories like my bag above for ridiculously low prices. Check them out if you want a great deal, plus you are doing the planet a favour by using  things that would otherwise just add to pollution.

Those are all my favourites at this time. I hope you find it helpful. Let me know if you enjoy this type of post in the comments!

Summer Shades

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Summer is right around the corner in the more temperate climes, but here in Jamaica it is always summer and I thought I would share with you a few sunglasses that I purchased recently. I am a squinter, if there is such a thing as allergy to light I have it. I can barely open my eyes wide enough to not bump into other people and objects when I am out in the sun.

So when I ended up with one pair  of sunglasses recently I knew it was time to restock.

Since I was purchasing some other bits from Forever 21  I decided to just throw in a few pairs of sunglasses and enjoy the free shipping. Of-course I added a lot more to my basket than I ended up picking, but in the end it came down to practicality with a little style thrown in.

This first pair is in the cat eye style, enough to be stylish but not too exaggerated. I chose the sort of brass handle because it would go well with the mostly gold accessories that I wear. It is nice and neutral and is great for casual days.

The second pair I chose is in the wayfarer style with just a hint of cat eye. It is quite chunky and sturdy and I choose it mainly to wear for work. I was thinking of getting an aviator, but a remember how many of them I had broken in the past. The sturdiness of this pair will stand up.to the all the falls and squeezes its likely to get while I am working or travelling to and from work.

It is a neutral black with a small slice of gold hardware at the top of the frames (yes I love gold). So I still get a little style mixed with the functionality. I love how big the lenses are for maximum  sun blockage.

The third pair I bought is definitely the most stylish of the three. It has the Dior vibe that lots of bloggers are wearing. The handles have a brown wooden/animal print look that makes them cool but neutral at the same time. I also love the olive-green tint of the lenses. I can picture these shades jazzing up so many casual summer outfits.

These might last at most a year before the get scratchy but they are cheap so no complaints. They would have served their purpose.
