Since I haven’t been posting as much as usual, I wanted to share some of the things I’ve bought recently that I love. These are just an assortment of things that I bought to try out on my own, and have used them enough that I feel good about recommending them to all of you.
Technically, this is intended to be used for wine, but I actually love using it for coffee when I’m at home. It has a lid, so I don’t have to worry about spilling, and it’s insulated so it keeps my coffee warmer for longer. The lid also has room for a straw, which is necessary for me. Plus, it’s light enough that it’s east for me to lift. Win-win-win-win for me!
Foreo Luna Play Plus
I tried a Clarisonic for a few uses when they came out years ago, but my face did not react well! It was way too rough for my face, which ended up red and irritated and with more breakouts than before. This Foreo Luna Play Plus, though, is the perfect facial cleansing device for me. It’s made of silicone, and it’s super gentle on my face, but my face does feel nicer and softer after I use it. It vibrates, and feels like it works in my face wash better than I ever could with a gentle washcloth, but isn’t at all irritating. I also like that it can’t get gross and dirty like a typical “brush” head does. This version uses replaceable AAA batteries – they also sell a more expensive version with a rechargeable battery, but I’m really happy with this one.
Shisheido Whipped Blush
I never thought that I could use anything but a powder blush, because of how oily my skin is – I thought that it would just make things worse. But this being described as “whipped” really is accurate – it’s not quite a cream, but it definitely isn’t a powder, either. I use a stippling brush (this one) to put it on and blend it in. A little tiny bit goes a very long way, but it blends in really nicely and looks a lot more subtle than powder blush does, in my opinion. It doesn’t make me look more oily, and lasts a long time on my skin.
I’m obviously a huge Drybar fan – I’ve used their curling iron and blow dryer, and think both work really well. So it was no surprise to me how much I love the Brush Crush, too. It’s a straightening brush, so it’s a cross between a regular hairbrush and a straightening iron. I use it on days that I don’t wash my hair, and it does an amazing job in making it look smoother and less frizzy, and it also gets out the “line” in my hair from my ponytail holder. Best of all, it’s way faster than it would be to use a straightener. It’s pricey, but in my mind, absolutely worth it.
