JANUARY 2017 OBSESSION

First thing’s first friends. I missed the December obsession! December flew right by without a trace. My apologies to you all. But we’re now through January. We’ve got a full year ahead and I’m committed to trying it all out, for YOU! This month I tried a great one….

Garnier Skin Active Miceller Cleansing Water & Makeup Remover is pretty good. I was skeptical at first. I thought, will this lightweight formula work on my full face makeup? And can I get away without rinsing? Could there be a makeup remover and cleanser all in one? So the answer is no; full face makeup isn’t where you pull this out. But, there is still something that I love about it. It seems like the perfect product to bring on a mini vacation or throw in your gym bag to use after a workout. Although it’s not equipped for my everyday nighttime routine, there are real benefits. It removes impurities without harsh effects. Nothing wrong with that!

If you’re looking for a regime that works well every night, check out what I’m most committed to, here.

There you have it. Give it a try. It’s gentle and hydrating. Who doesn’t want that?

NOVEMBER 2016 OBSESSION

I’ve rediscovered a love of mine in November. Truly obsessed! My most recent post goes into my latest nighttime skincare routine. A simple and easy regimen that I believe is changing the life of my skin. There’s one piece of the puzzle that I’m becoming obsessed with. It’s the key ingredient and I don’t see it going away any time soon.

Argan Oil is such a special oil. It’s light enough to use everyday and effective enough to heal your skin. I’m convinced that it is improving the look of my face and neck and I wish I had been more consistent over the last year with it. I specifically use the Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil. There are several brands to choose from. Give it a go. Check out my current nighttime routine to see how I use it. You may fall in love too!

SEPTEMBER 2016 OBSESSION

Pinch me! Is September over? This year is flying by! Not fast enough for me to forget about sharing my monthly obsession though. This month we’re back to full body care.

Nivea Essentially Enriched Body Lotion is one of those little low cost gems that works; better than some of our favorite luxury beauty brands. The closer we get to the cooler months, the more I start to realize what product transition I need to make. My skin talks to me when the temperature drops. And all I need is moisture, moisture, moisture. There’s this small science I practice to get the best use out of this really rich formula. I can’t wait until my body is too dry after showering. If you wait you may notice the slightest bit of resistance when applying. But if you calculate that key moment of almost dry, dewy, clean skin, right after applying you feel soft and beautiful all over. Don’t worry about it feeling too heavy in your hands at first. It dries quickly and you’re not left feeling sticky. I love it! I think you will too!

AUGUST 2016 OBSESSION

I have a new all time favorite product for my hair. You’ve probably heard me say this before but guys, believe me, I found my hair therapy!

The Eden Body Works All Natural Cowash changed the game for me. I’m the girl with the super coarse, super dry, sometimes hard to manage mane. The way this product runs through my tresses makes me want to store a case of 24 in my closet! I’ve found myself cowashing twice a week with this product and my hair shouts a big thank you every time. My hair is left feeling so soft and manageable. It smells amazing and is filled with the best natural ingredients. Score all around! If you haven’t tried it yet, I urge you to give it a go. I only talk about what I love during monthly obsessions. Eden Body Works All Natural Cowash is nothing short of perfect.
