Beauty Products I Am Loving Right Now

I thought I might take some time out about waffling about random things and talk about some stuff closer to home.  Namely, my dressing table.  I am not a big spender on beauty products.  I don't have a plethora of products I barely use, and it is a rare occasion I have to toss out a product because it's gone off (so to speak).  I'm usually throwing out empty jars. 

I find I will come across a certain product and love it to death before finally moving on, at the moment these are a few of my favorite things:

Skin79 Hot Pink Super Plus BB Cream has successfully replaced my foundation this Summer.  It's the first BB cream I've bought, well the only brand thus far, so I am a little biased.  There are so many promises packed into this little jar, and to be honest I don't really know if it delivers on every one.  My skin has seemed a bit clearer, and maybe some of my fine lines look a bit better, but I'm completely impressed with it's sunblocking skills.  I've been only using this on my face and no sunburn yet.  The only thing I find is that after about five hours of wear I do need to pull out the blotting papers to control shine.  This one has a bit of a gray cast to it (check online reviews for more on that) but I find it adjusts well to my skin tone and helps keep my natural rosiness under check.


Dermalogica Antioxidant Hydramist is a spritz on toner that is gentle and refreshing on skin.  It is aimed at mature or prematurely aging skin.  I still get ID-ed when buying booze and I'm nearly thirty-three.  Does this baby have something to do with it?  Maybe.  But I love it anyway.  My skin feels a little bit more perked up just from using this.


Rohto Lycee Eye Drops (for contact lenses - although I only wear circle lenses at present) are amazingly refreshing.  I actually got these as I heard they could make your eyes appear brighter, whiter, and fresher.  Being that my eyes are usually the first thing to show fatigue on my body (hours in front of a computer monitor anyone?), I needed all the help I can get.  In fact I use these even when I'm not wearing lenses.  They have this ultra fresh feeling, like my eyes have been gargling mouthwash... eww.

Speaking of eyes ... Princess Mimi Sesame Grey Circle Lenses are my favorite circle lenses at this minute.  I love so many circle lenses but they hardly blend well with my natural blue-grey iris color.  These do, and they have this gorgeous enlargement effect that make my eyes look huge.  Plus they kind of freak people out in bars... which is nice.

Lastly, Vera Wang's Princess (Original) is my go to signature scent at the moment.  It was a gift from my Mum, and it's prettily feminine without being over powering.  I mostly stick to scents with a bit of an oriental, musky, I've-been-rolling-in-incense vibe, but this is pretty and I love it.  I just don't see myself every tiring of it.
