November (17) Empties

I went through so many goodies this month! I'm finally at the point where I know what I love and I'm going through them often and repurchasing what works for me!



Skincare:

ZO Skin Health Daily Power Defense- I've talked about this product before and this is a star product in my AM routine. It's a multi tasker and I can't be without this product! This was the travel size bottle that I went through and it lasted me a good while. I loved this so much I purchased the full size of it recently. Not a cheap product, but so SO worth it! If you're not using this, you should be.

ZO Skin Health Exfoliating Polish- I use this twice a week in the AM. This is a great product for getting rid of dead skin cells and getting a good surface exfoliation. I had two back ups of it at home already and definitely pulled out another. I keep this in my rotation to keep my skin soft and smooth. It doesn't irritate my skin because the crystals are micro crystals so it's not scrubbing my face off. Love this stuff!

Roccoco Decongesting Porefection- I got this travel size a while ago and finally went through it once I really got my routine figured out. This is a great lightweight moisturizer for oily skin gals. This isn't thick or goopy. I feel like I need a little more during the winter months because I tend to get dry patches around my mouth and nose. I haven't repurchased this YET but I am planning on making an order very soon once I get all the Christmas shopping done! If you have acne prone oily skin you need to check out this brand. Their products are SO effective and they will do everything they can to help you!

EltaMD UV Clear 46- This is one of my favorite sunscreens. I use this on my face and neck every day. This is great for anyone with rosacea, or acne prone skin. It's got niacinamide in it so it helps to keep the skin clear and it has clear zinc so it doesn't leave a white cast on the skin. LOVE this and yes I have another!

Makeup:

Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder- I tried to live without this I really tried and I didn't have a good time... I love baking under my eyes with this, it really is brightening and locks in my concealer for all day wear. This lasted me FOREVER I was actually happy when I went through it because I rarely go through something makeup wise because I am always trying new things. This goes to show how much I love this stuff and I definitely repurchased because I can't go without!



Supplements:

GNC Energy & Metabolism Multi- I've gone through plenty of these and I still like them. They give me an extra boost and they come in a double pack so I had a backup!

Carlson Zinc- Okay this is a supplement I CANNOT live without. A while back I did a post on the supplements I use to keep coldsores away and this is one of them. The PA that told me the secret supplements to keep them away warned me that I had to take them EVERY DAY or one would pop up. His exact words "If you skip two days one will come up." So I hadn't had one in almost a YEAR on my supplements and I ran out of my zinc. I figured I was safe because I wasn't stressed. hadn't been in the sun, and I feel like my immune system is much stronger now... I GOT A FREAKING COLD SORE from skipping TWO days without this. Needless to say immediately ordered another bottle...

Asthaxanthin- I won't spend too much time on this one, but I love what this does to my skin and I like the extra antioxidants and joint support so I continue to order and take this daily.

NEW DEODORANT:

Mitchum Spray in Pure Fresh: I've been using this lately because I found it has the highest active ingredient and I don't know why but I've been a sweaty mess lately. This is the best deo I've found and this scent is nice and fresh. I can't handle the overpowering powder smell so this is nice and subtle. I've already purchased two more!

Wear Test: Maybelline Fit Me

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation first of all... SO much bang for your buck! This foundation is about 7.99 at walgreens, so if they have a sale or a buy one get one or you have points, just buy this! You can't beat the price of this drugstore foundation AND it performs. Keep reading to see how it wore on my oily skin!



7:30 am as soon as I got in the car. This foundation went on beautifully and all of my products sat on top of it nicely. So far so good.





I didn't get a lunch time update because we were so busy, but this was 4:30 pm right before leaving work to go to the gym... This foundation has barely budged. Only slightly breaking up around my nose and this is without powdering or touching up throughout the day. 


Here is more of a close up to see how it sat on the pores. 
I'm slightly shiny and it showed a little bit of texture (honestly they all do) but I am very impressed by this drugstore find!

Overall this foundation has really wowed me and I can see why everyone goes crazy for this one. It is SO affordable and really long lasting. It looked great throughout the day and I definitely give it a thumbs up!
