One of my favorite things about returning home after being gone for 3+ weeks is checking all my mail.
Inevitably my excitements turns to dismay when all I find is a bunch of coupons for carpet cleaning and a free ADT alarm system.
But gold buying pamphlets aside, I also received some fun stuff: Jaymo sent me a couple pictures of a box of beauty goodies that came in the mail.
I’ve tried some of these brands before like the Dove Clinical Protection deoderant and Furterer conditioning mask, but other brands I haven’t even heard of like Supergoop sunscreen.
I actually bought Dove Clinical Protection deodorant a couple months ago when I was in Palm Springs for the weekend. I had left all my beauty products at home and it was 100* outside so I needed some deodorant with serious staying power stat.
This stuff has 20% aluminum zirconium tetrachlorohydrex to make it work and vitamins E&F and moisturizers to make it soft and smooth.
I also tried out The Body Shop Shea beautifying oil last night after showering and shaving – I might have found my new favorite product. I’ve never tried a dry oil before and this is amazing: it makes your skin super, super soft but doesn’t leave that oily, slick residue like regular body oils.
Jaymo even asked if I was wearing perfume last night (I wasn’t) and said that I smelled good… I must regularly stink.
And the Furterer repairing after sun mask is nice and rich, a good heavier conditioner with palm butter and fatty acids.
I’m excited to try this Lorac highlighter/bronzer:
I get a lot of questions about whether I fake and bake or not, and the answer is no, I don’t, but I live in perpetually sunny California.
I always always always wear sunscreen on my face so I use a bronzer to avoid Casper-face. I’ve heard about Lorac makeup but never tried it so hopefully it will make me look like a supermodel. fingers crossed.
By the way, did you hear that supermodel Marissa Miller is having a boy and is totally gross and disgusting looking pregnant?
ha, just kidding.
