As always – I am loving your suggestions, so if you have anything you think I should try out, please let me know in the comments!
First of all, I have to say I am LOVING this brand. They have a lot of good products, super reasonable prices and they are available at places like Target.
Now, if you don’t mind, I need to rant about night creams for a moment. I’ve heard since I was in my early twenties, that I needed to be using night creams and anti-aging products. We’ve all heard this. And the fear of aging is so INSANE in the US that a lot of us (myself included) have spent hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars on these type of products. But the more I have researched it, the more annoyed/upset I have become. A LOT of these products (I don’t want to generalize, but most products you will find in most stores) are full of toxic chemicals. So many of them, even ones branded as super healthy, are rated a 10 out of 10. I find it so SAD that women (again, myself included) are so afraid of looking old that they would spend lots of $$$ on products that are unhealthy and frankly, do not do what they promise anyway! We are all aging, and it’s not the worst thing ever. I’m not saying I don’t want to take the best care of my skin as I possibly can, but I am saying that anti-aging products are often more harmful than helpful.
The best resource I’ve found is the book
Anyway – here’s a night cream that smells awesome and is rated a 0. I almost never find products that I already use or products you can buy at lots of stores with a score this perfect. Awesome!!
I found these products during my facial at
This is a powdery mixture that smells exactly like coconuts. I love the crazy Lush bath bombs too, but more often than not, I just want a really light, fresh, relaxing scent for a bath. This is my new go-to. The scent REALLY appeals to me.
Thanks so much for reading you guys! Hope your week is off to a great start! xx- Elsie
