Just spray... and go!

Ok, I finally tried the Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer.  I thought about trying it for a while now, but I just wasn't sure about it.   I mean we're all constantly looking for shortcuts to get places faster, get ready faster, have food ready faster, you name it!  However, I just wan't sure if there was really a shortcut when it came to moisturizer.  I have been dryer than I normally am at this time of year(is that a sign of getting old?), and it was on sale at the local drug store so I figured this was sign it was time to try it.

Overall I love it!!  I love the feeling of my skin when I use moisturizer, however I hate how long it can take to soak into the skin.  And like many I hate that sticky feeling you sometimes get when you use traditional moisturizer.  This product truly does solve all the problems!!!!!  I was nervous at first because I heard it can be cold when you spray it on your skin, but I didn't have that problem at all.

I will say if you're super dried out than stick with body butter.  While this definitely does moisturize, it won't be enough if you're feeling super dry. My only other complaint is that sometimes I found the button a little difficult to get it to spray, but that could just be this particular bottle.

I defeinitely want to give the St. Ives spray moisturizer a try too.  As anyone found the prefer one brand over the other, or are they basically the same?

Current Nail Obsession

Like most people, my nail colors usually depend on the season.  In the spring/summer I like bright pinks and pastel nail colors.  In the fall/winter I usually like darker reds/purples/navy.  And of course every once in a while, regardless or the season, I love a nude nail polish.  However, lately my favorite nail polish shades have been muted tones.  Here are some of my current favorites.

Fall 2014 Nail Polish

I know the Essie "After School Boy Blazer" is not a muted tone but I couldn't resist including it because it is still one of my absolute favorites.

The Sally Hansen  and Wet N Wild polishes are both truly neutral shades.  However when I do what a little bit of color I currently love the Rimmel "Soul Session" with is a pretty pink-taupe, and the Essie "Merino Cool" a purple-grey shade.  These shades are perfect for when you're looking for something more than a nude shade, but not a stand out shade.  

(p.s. sorry it's been a while since my last post.  Work has been crazy hectic that by the time I get home.. I'm a zombie.)

Zoella Beauty

So, like I said on Monday, I am currently obsessed with British beauty bloggers.  Nothing against the American beauty bloggers, but I tend to like the British style more.  My current favorite British bloggers are Essie Button, and Vivianna Does Makeup.

Well, a few weeks ago a few of the British bloggers were talking about Zoella's beauty launch, so I couldn't resist checking out her line of products.  And I must say I was actually impressed, and so I couldn't help but indulge in 2 produtcs.

First off I loved how girly her line was without being tacky.  I instantly fell in love with this cosmetic bag.  I kind of reminded me of that picture of Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face where it's just her brows, eyes, nose, and lips.  And you really can't go wrong with polk-a-dots.  I am so happy to finally have a cute travel cosmetic bag again, most of mine are  too small so I usually just use a Ziploc bag.  I already can't wait to travel some where so I can use it.

I also decided to pick up her Zoella Beauty Soak Opera Bath Soak and Shower Cream.  It has a subtle floral smell, and really does leave the skin feeling soft.  I will admit, it's basically an ordinary shower gel, but I didn't want to just order the bag since it was coming overseas.  Still not a bad product, and worth the $8.

She also has a fragrance, fizz bar, and lotion but I believe most of those are currently sold out.  I ordered her products from Feel Unique which gives free shipping world-wide on orders of $15.  The only down side was it took a while to get to my house since it was coming from Europe.  However, free shipping makes it worth the wait.
