December Beauty Favorites.

It’s finally December, and our favorite holiday is just around the corner! With each assignment turned in, I’m feeling more and more free for winter break. These were several products I’ve been noticing myself use more lately as the holidays approach!

Gabrielle Chanel Eau De Parfum- I’ve mentioned before that a lot of perfumes give me headaches, but I really wanted to find a perfume to wear on our wedding. My momsy’s favorite perfume is Chanel No. 5 but it smells a little mature on me, so I was hoping to find something by Chanel that smelled more like me, and to me, Gabrielle is the perfect blend of classic and feminine.

I’m Not Really A Waitress by OPI Nail Lacquer – I remember the first time I wore this color after I started dating Sam and he went on and on about how much he loved it on me, so I always feel extra special when I wear it. It’s the most perfect Christmas red with a lovely pearl finish.

Aveda Hand Relief Moisturizing Creme- My mother bought this hand cream a couple years ago, and it’s been a staple of mine ever since. It’s so hydrating, but doesn’t leave my hands feeling tacky. A little goes a long ways so it lasts forever.

Neutrogena Night Calming Makeup Remover Towelettes- I tend to wear a little more makeup during the winter when we go to holiday parties, and these are the only makeup remover wipes I’ve used that aren’t too oily or too dry. I have fairly sensitive skin and certain chemicals will cause a reaction, but these are really gentle. Also it you have a Sam’s Club membership, they frequently have them in bunk for a steal.

Shea Moisture Head to Toe Argon Oil- This was a present from a friend and I’m so in love with it, I use it on my face at night, and will often run it through the ends of my hair to prevent breakage. It’s a dry oil, so leaves my hair and skin hydrated without feeling oily.

L’Oreal Colour Riche Lipstick in Zoe’s Red- This was the first deep red lipstick that I’ve liked with my skin tone. A couple years ago I read somewhere that it was going to be discontinued and I rushed to the store to pick up a couple extras, but lo and behold, it wasn’t discontinued and now I have plenty left when this one runs out.

Milani Keep It Sweet Sugar Lip Scrub- My lips get really dry in the winter, so this is an must-have for me. It’s exfoliating enough to smooth without being overly abrasive. Plus it smells just like sugar cookies!

FarmHouse Fresh Peat Perfection Mask- I hadn’t heard of peat until a couple weeks ago when I was given a sample of this mask. I went home that night and research how it’s used in body products and now I’m completely obsessed. The mask itself is really lovely, I apply it with a brush and let it dry for about 20 minutes before rinsing and my skin looks and feels great.
