September 2012 Favourites!

My first favourites post, woohoo!  I have been loving a few things and just had to share.  Favourites are always a good way to update your previous reviews without actually making changes to them I think.

Skin care is up first:

Ginseng Facial Scrub Cream - review here - I love this stuff so much and haven't felt compelled to try any other scrub. I mix in a little with my cleanser in the AM and it leaves my skin feeling gorgeous!

Pure+Simple Calming Cucumber Mask - review here - this has been my go-to for calming and hydrating my skin. I actually didn't think it was, or going to become, an essential part of my routine but I need this product in my life. It is so awesome and I will be purchasing once I run out.

Pure+Simple Lactic Acid Plus - review here - I am still obsessed with this product. I apply it almost every night to help clear up or prevent break outs, smooth my skin, lighten scars, you name it this does it. It's a HG item for me without a doubt.

Pai Rosehip Bioregenerate - review here - Wonderful, what else can I say?  I love how hydrating it is and how it makes my skin look and feel when I apply it and when I wake up. 

As listed above

Makeup - Lip Products:

Alima Pure Lip Balm (swatches below) - review here - I still think there is a hint of stale peanut in terms of taste BUT I have fallen in love with these balms.  They are hydrating and add a nice hint of colour to your lips when you want a little but don't want to apply lip stick or a stain.  I have been reaching for both colours.

MariaNatie Lip Gloss - review here - I really enjoyed these glosses when I first tried them and I still really enjoy them.  While the lack of colour is disappointing, I love putting them on top of the Alima balms.  It adds a beautiful glossy layer and tastes delicious!

Top to Bottom: Rhubarb and Mango

Makeup - Face Products :

Pure+Simple Blush - review here - While I didn't actually review the colour below (Glow), I did declare my love for Pure+Simple blushes.  I have been reaching for this colour every single day since purchasing it and continue to do so.  I feel this is going to be my favourite every month until I use it up.

Sante Face Powder -review here - I wish there was a bit more coverage in this product but am enjoying it.  It's great for setting makeup as well as for wearing on it's own when I'm way too lazy to do my entire face.  It offers a semi matte finish and just slightly evens out my skin tone.

Tarte Cream Shadow - review here - I love using this on my lid but have been using it all month long as a highlighter! Don't you just love discovering a new use for a current product? I do!  This is great on my cheek bones, just under my brows, down my nose, inner corners of eyes and cupids bow.  Love, love, love this thing.

Pure+Simple Blush and Sante Face Powder
