I went to Bath and body works a couple months ago and was drawn to all their beauty products. I usually just get shower gel and lotion from the store and never pay much attention to the lip wear. I decided to try out some of their lip products so I asked the woman working about all of them. She said that the best selling gloss was Liplicious Blush Glass. I thought it looked like it would just turn out clear, but I took her word for it and scooped it up. Later on when I used it, I realized that even though it is a gloss, it is also a pink stain. I was very happy it turned out having such a pretty color and it felt moisturizing at the same time because it wasn’t dry and stiff. I would also like to mention that it tastes like bananas and strawberries to me! I wear it almost every time that I go out because it is easier to apply than a lipstick, especially when I am in a hurry and don’t have a mirror handy. Even after the shine of the gloss wears off, the stain of color is still present. It’s awesome!!
This was in the shower the other day so I decided to give it a go. I left it in a couple minutes as the directions said to do and I was impressed with the fresh scent. It kind of reminded me of something that my Nana uses, maybe she uses a Dove product on her hair that smells similar. I’m not sure, but something in her house smells nice like this conditioner if it is not something in her hair that smells this way.
After I got out of the shower I did my normal routine and later hung with my bf. I didn’t tell him that I had tried this new product, but he put his hands in my hair and told me that my hair was super soft. He even said, “This is the sofest I have ever felt your hair.” I thought maybe it was just because I didn’t have much hair spray in, however I have been using this product for a week and it has continued to leave my hair really soft and workable. My bf also said more recently that my hair is super silky and doesn’t have all the tangles that it used to. I am going to keep using this conditioner because I am very impressed with it!
Another thing to take note of is that this conditioner helps protect hair from styling tools that heat up to 425 degrees! Which means this will come in handy for me in the winter when I use a hair dryer. This will prevent my weak wet hair from becoming damaged or breaking off in the process of drying it. Good to know.
I had my nails done the other day and decided to veer away from all the trends. Above shows what was done, but you can’t tell how rounded they actually are, they turned out looking square in the photo. I got tired of animal prints and bright colors, so I went with a more traditional, polished, slightly rounded french manicure. This is my favorite way to have my nails done because it always looks nice and sophisticated and matches everything. Mind you, these are my real nails, I just have let them grow out once again. This is the shellac polish that I rant and rave about each month!
One of my friends had this nice smelling stuff she sprayed on her pillows before she goes to sleep, I thought it was really cool because I had never seen it before. Turns out it is Bath and Body Works Lavender Chamomile Pillow Mist and I enjoyed the aroma so much that I got some for myself! I figured everyone needs something to help battle restless nights. It is a really soothing, sweet smell. If I feel like I am going to have trouble sleeping, I spray it over my pillow and the top of my sheets and sometimes on the stuffed animals that lay next to me. Later when it is dry, I can still smell the scent while I try to calm down and shut off for the night.
Of course, there are some nights where no matter what I do I just can’t sleep because I am too stressed or had too much sugar or caffeine, but I always try to give myself at least an hour to fall asleep. I have always had trouble falling asleep quickly, so I would like to think breathing this spray in as I am preparing for sleep is a sort of therapeutic aid that winds me down a bit. I know that when I have sprayed it on my boyfriend’s pillow, without him knowing, he has always told me he slept really well the morning after. Maybe that is just a coincidence, but try it for yourself and let me know if it works for you!
I usually hate wearing chap stick or lip balm because I don’t like the texture or the taste very much. I always put some on my lips before bed, it is the last step in my nightly routine because I feel like it keeps my mouth soft and hydrated. I recently tried a Nivea product called Nivea Lip Care A Kiss Of Smoothness and I am quite impressed with it. It’s texture is super soft and the taste isn’t gross. It almost feels soothing and relaxing due to the smell and it’s softness. I actually like to use this stuff a few times a day. I like to put it on before I put on lipstick, I enjoy putting it on when I lay out in the sun because it has spf in it, and I of course put it on before I go to sleep at night. I highly recommend trying this lip product because it is the best one I have ever used. I know that the Nivea company has been around for a long time so I guess they have had a lot of time to perfect this lip balm.
