But I have recently found two products I just love, and I couldn’t help myself. I need to gush.
:: Moisture Therapy Intensive Hand Treatment ::
When M was about 15 months old, I began to get eczema on one of my fingers. It quickly spread all over both hands and became quite painful, my hands swelled up, cut open and it was just plain horrible. I paid too much for naturopathic creams, steroid creams, special lotions and vitamins... I tried so many potions. Some would help for a little while but it always returned with a vengeance.
I spotted this cream in the AVON catalogue and thought I’d try it. It did say “for extra dry skin”, and that sold me. That, and the $2 price tag. Yes, $2. That’s the most I’ve ever paid for it. I have about 10 tubes stashed in my cupboard and then one in every bag, near my bed, in the car and at work. This cream rocks my
:: Covergirl Lash Blast Length mascara ::
I have quite fair eyelashes and I need mascara. I’ve been searching for the perfect one for years. I’ve tried quite a few budget mascaras and I could never just stick to one. I don't spend more than about $15... on anything, really! Recently I’ve had some disasters. I bought a Maybelline Colossal mascara but failed to notice the word “diamond” on the packaging. I loved the volume. However, after months of thinking I had constantly had M’s glitter in my eyes (our house is dusted with glitter from the continual artsy crafting) I finally realised it was the damn mascara. Diamonds = tiny glittery bits. No like. And even more recntly, a mascara purchase quickly hit the bin. I’m not into this clumpy mascara look.
This Lash Blast stuff rocks. It's a simple, straight, clean brush. It coats my lashes evenly. Makes them black. And that is it. That's just what I want.
Do you have any products you just love? Can't do without?
