Product Review-Things I Love

Well, I'm still pregnant.

So to pass the time, I thought I would do a post on some products I love. 

I rarely buy anything until I've researched it online and read other people's reviews. Whether it's shoes, running gear, make up products, or cleaning products, I have a hard time committing to buying something I haven't read online reviews about. It also saves me money, because at least half the time I don't go back to buy it.

SO, after all that, here is what I've been loving.

I have always hated using eye make up remover. It's always either too oily or didn't really take off the make up. So for the past few years, I haven't used any and every night and morning I spent too much time trying to wipe off the day-before residue. I bought The Body Shop's Camomile eye make up remover and LOVE it! It's not oily at all and it takes off all of my eye make up! It's so gentle, yet effective.

Also, from the Body Shop, is their tea tree oil line. I've had bad acne for pretty much my whole life and have tried every single thing known to man. Seriously. But that's another post. I've been using the tea tree oil line for almost 2 years now. I love the entire line, but my favorite is the Blemish Fade Night Lotion. (Being pregnant has completely cleared up my acne, but pre-pregnancy I used this every night). Pre-pregnancy, I would use this nightly, and by morning I could tell a huge difference in redness, irritation, and any breakouts. I'm not going to say it will take acne away overnight, but it is by far the best thing I have ever used. And I love waking up each morning with better skin than the night before.

I recently started using the Urban Decay Naked Palette, and received a free sample of their Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Original. I have ALWAYS had a problem with eyeshadow creases on my eyelids. I've tried the eyeshadows that promised no crease, but none of them ever worked. By mid-day, I would always have to wipe off the crease/build up of my eyeshadow, and reapply it. 
So I tried my free sample and was amazed when I went an entire day with no eyeshadow creases!!!! I haven't gone a single day without using this primer first before applying my eyeshadow. And i'm not sure if it's a combo of the primer and the UD Naked or what, but my eye make up at the end of the day looks like I just put it on. I don't think I will ever not use this product-it's amazing!

And speaking of UD-I got the Naked Palette and Naked Palette 2 for Christmas. I love them both! If you're only going to get one, I would recommend the Original Palette. That's just my preference based on the colors-but I do prefer the brush that comes in Palette 2. I've never been good at applying eyeshadow, and am still learning, but I love how easy these are to use!

Invisible Dry Spray Shampoo
If you've read my blog for a while, you know that I despise showering. I try to go at least 2, if not 3 days between showers (unless I'm working out or running). I feel like showers take up valuable time and I hate spending time drying my hair. So on the in-between days, I use dry shampoo. I haven't tried every kind out there, but I have tried a few different brands, including sprays and powders. Out of everything I've tried, Salon Grafix is by far my fave. It's pretty cheap, gives great volume, and really takes away the oils and give my hair a fresh look. I usually buy mine at Walgreens. 

I thought I had done a post about my fave running products, but i guess not. Maybe after Paige decides to finally come and I start back to running, I'll do that post. 

And i'm sure as soon as I post this I'll remember another fave product that I completely forgot about, oh well! 

Do you have a fave product you just can't live without??
