but i really do like the promise that a little something new brings my way – sometimes it's disappointing, other times i discover something that'll forever be a favorite.
either way, this mama likes her stuff and i was inspired to do a round-up of my tried and trues because a couple weeks ago i tried something that's kinda revolutionized my life.
i really try to use (and naturally gravitate towards) products that are natural and/or organic and generally not toxic to me or the environment.
that said, sometimes i throw a little caution to the wind.
now, i'm definitely not winning any beauty contests or anything but that leads me to my main point: feeling good is where it's at.
oh, and also? don't let this fool you into thinking that i spend much time in front of the mirror.
bonzo's 19 months old, remember? there ain't much time to burn in the mornings 'round here.
here are my favorites:
jurlique lavender-lavandin hydrating essence: put a few drops of this in a bowl filled with warm/hot water and soak a washcloth it then press it to your face a few times. i can tell a noticeable difference in my skin when i do this regularly. you'd think that'd be enough to have me doing this nightly... but i'm lazy about it.
josie maran matchmaker argan serum foundation: like i said, not winnin' any beauty contests but i have to say: this is a new favorite. the whole "color matching" thing feels gimmicky to me but whatever. it matches me really well. and it feels rad going on and improves things without making me feel like i have a bunch of make-up on. i love it, dudes.
