These are a few of my favourite things....

I thought this morning that I would share a few products that I am loving right now and have made a real difference for me.

I mentioned this F80 - Flat Kabuki brush from Sigma in my Sunday Deals and Steals post and raved about it because it's just such an awesome brush. It buffs your foundation in perfectly, giving great coverage and a smooth finish. It is very well made and the brushes are super dense with no bristle fall out, love it! It has taken over from my Beauty Blender sponge which I also really like and have been using forever but this is better.

Next is the Clarisonic Mia. This has been a facial game changer for me. I've tried a few of the knockoff brushes but they don't even come close to the Clarisonic. I use it two or three times a week for exfoliation. It's gentle, and spins quickly back and forth rather than in a circle which I find tends to pull my skin too much. This is a good investment in your longterm skincare. If you aren't exfoliating than you are just putting product (serums, moisturizers etc..) on top of dead skin cells and it's not getting down deep where it can make a real difference.

I am in love with the Philosophy line of facial products. I have been using their  Purity Made Simple cleanser for a long time now (not sure why I didn't include a picture of it....sorry about that) along with their Hope in a Jar moisturizer, two products I can't say enough good things about. My skin, which has a mind of it's own, has never looked and felt so good. Using the Clarisonic with these two products has made all the difference.

I only just started using Hope In A Jar Night but I can already feel the difference, honestly right from the first use. It has a texture which is kind of hard to describe. The regular Hope in a Jar is very light and soaks in quickly, whereas the Hope in a Jar Night is thick, almost honey like in texture (not sticky), but it absorbs instantly and your skin feels amazing. It's only been a few days and my skin is unbelievably smooth. I'm loving it so far and will do another review in a couple of months after I've had a chance to use it long term.

And this Forever Blonde Dramatic Repair from Paul Mitchell is the bees knees. You just spray it into your damp towel dried hair and proceed to style as usual. Your hair will be so soft and smooth that you will be coming back to thank me for telling you about it.
It's called Forever Blonde as it works great on coloured/over processed hair but it's also just as good for hair that just needs a little extra love.

Hope you are having a great Tuesday. My morning walk was rained out so it's the treadmill for me tonight. :)
