Except maybe for the sudden drops in temperature, I have really been enjoying this beautiful fall season. Not only is the fashion impeccable (I have a weakness for boots and jackets), but it also allows for comfy evenings in, made perfect by candles that smell of spices and a cup of tea with milk. Incidentally, those evenings make for ideal times to blog ;).
During these past few months, I used up some products that I really love. I've talked about two of them in my Morning routine post: they are the Clean & Clear Morning Burst facial cleanser with bursting beads (gitamin C and ginseng) as well as my Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm in Peppermint. You can check out that post if you want to know why I love using them -- and why I'm pretty sad that there is nothing left of them! The thing is, I can't justify repurchasing them for the moment, as I have two other cleansers to use up, and perhaps countless other lip balms. This means that my skincare routine has indeed slightly changed; but I won't bother with an update for the moment, as I much prefer the products I featured in my post back in June.
It's been a while since I've used the last of my Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer in Ivory (the one I purchased in March, that is). This one I had no choice but to buy again, since it is a staple of mine. I talk about my love for this concealer in this post.
I'm also done with the Japanese Cherry Blossom Creamy Body Wash from Bath & Body Works, that I've shown you over here. Although I find that the scent was not identical to their Japanese cherry blossom candle (which I adore), I loved this shower gel just as much. This was a nice change from the typical "fresh" shower scents that are offered out there: being more on the sensual side, I think this would also be a great choice for fall.
The next product is a conditioner from L'Oréal Paris that I bought while I was in Ukraine. It is from their Elseve line, and although I did not find the exact equivalent for America, the Russian translates to "Nourishment and Shine". Anyway, I do not suggest that you go looking for it, because I did not like it all that much: even though it wasn't awful, other conditioners can detangle my hair much better (the Herbal Essences Hello Hydration one, for instance).
I'm not sure if this one is entirely relevant, but I will mention it anyway: I've finished up this bottle of gummy multivitamins from Life. There were 70 of them, and the directions advise you to take 2 a day, which makes for a 35-day supply. Whether multivitamins work or not is still a controversial question, and I can't testify for their benefits -- but they certainly made me feel good about eating berry, lemon and orange-flavoured "candies" every morning!
This is it, girls -- I may be very slow in terms of using up products, but I'm still glad to have some empties to show you once in a while! I can't wait to read your empties posts, and I hope you're all enjoying this wonderful season. xoxo.
PS: Would you mind telling me what your favourite face moisturiser is? I'd really love to know.
