My Current Monthly Favorites 2020 | Skincare, Haircare, Makeup, Clothes- Amazon + Target
hey guys welcome back to my channel for today’s video i thought we would do just a chill sit down chit chat about my current favorites it’s been so long since i’ve uploaded a favorites video i feel like the last time i did this was before i really started posting skincare content which is pretty much what my channel is now so it’s been a while of course i am going to have skincare favorites hair care favorites i will have some makeup favorites a planner some books just miscellaneous things couple clothes fun stuff that i’ve been loving and cannot stop reaching for so if you want to see my current favorites sit back relax pop some popcorn have a glass of wine sparkling water whatever you want and let’s jump right into it okay so let’s start off with skincare let’s not get too crazy here and i thought i would talk about a couple different categories within skin care because i have a lot that i’ve been loving and the first category i feel like we have to talk about is stuff i’ve been using to deal with face mask breakouts and face mask irritation and sensitivity i know i am not the only one dealing with this it’s been it’s been a journey over the past few months and i feel like there’s a few things that have really really helped me throughout that so i did recently upload a video for you guys talking through an update on hormonal acne for me i do have hormonal acne it’s something that i dealt with pretty brutally for a couple years and was able to clear it up for the most part once face masks entered our lives that threw everything for a loop so i started to have to use new products for that i talked through everything in that video i’ll put a card for it here and link it below if you’re interested but i have a couple things that i just have been obsessing over and wanted to mention to you guys the first is one you could probably guess if you watch a lot of my videos and have heard me complain about face mask irritation then i bet you would be able to guess what this is it’s the vanicream gentle facial cleanser i don’t know what i would do if this did not exist the hairs gross i don’t know what i would do if this didn’t exist because this is the only cleanser that i can use without fail when i have irritation going on whether that be from face masks or something else if i have stinging burning any form of irritation i always reach for the vanicream gentle facial cleanser it’s the best it never irritates my skin and there are definitely cleansers that can just aggravate my skin more make it sting and burn even more so this never does that it’s such an effective cleanser yet very gentle and i also just love the consistency of this should i just pump some on my hand for those of you that haven’t seen it oh gosh what is it about this that i love so much it looks like unicorn snap i just really love it nothing about it is stripping or drying but it’s not too hydrating to where it’s going to feel poor clogging or heavier greasy it’s perfect this is the perfect cleanser honestly if i could only pick one cleanser to use for the rest of my life it would be this and she’s affordable which we love so basically everything that i talk about in this video within skincare hair care and makeup are all things that i have done dedicated reviews on before so i will have literally everything linked in the description box below because if i mention it and it’s a skincare or hair care or makeup item chances are i probably already have a video on it either reviewing just that item or the entire brand or maybe it’s a comparison review there’s a lot so everything will be linked below this included the second is from cerave and it’s their moisturizing cream so i’ve recently mentioned in a couple different videos that i don’t love putting this all over my face anymore i did used to do that it’s just not really for me now that i’ve tried so many different moisturizers it’s not my favorite but what i am obsessed with this for is skin barrier repair so i’ve had a couple kind of patches around my mouth actually right on the bottom of my chin that have been consistently irritated and aggravated by face masks and it’ll be like flaky patchy scaly skin that’s very difficult to heal and what i’ve been using to help to speed up that healing process is the cerave moisturizing cream so in the review video that i have for this i show you guys how i actually like to apply this when i do have skin barrier damage and i swear by that method i kind of create like a little seal if you will on any area that i have irritation and this helps so much overnight it already is usually like 50 better it does still take a couple days for me whenever i have damage like that to heal it up it’s not going to be instant but this stuff is so good it really really has been something that i’ve been leaning on during this time and finally i have to give mention to the cerave acne foaming cream cleanser this is a four percent benzoyl peroxide acne treatment and pretty much i’ve only been using this on my chin jawline region so that’s where i’m acne prone i guess around my mouth underneath my nose a little in this area right here kind of your typical hormonal acne zone if you will that’s where i’ve been applying this because i don’t really ever break out on my forehead or tops of my cheeks now i’m sure i’ll get 12 breakouts in those spots tomorrow because i just jinxed it but usually i don’t break out there at all and benzoyl peroxide can definitely be a little bit drying and irritating for me so i just focus it on the areas where i am prone to breaking out maybe even if you don’t have hormonal acne but you have noticed that you’ve been breaking out in those spots from face masks lately this is something that you could try out so what i will do when i use this is just put it in that area and actually leave it on my skin for a few minutes so that my skin can actually you know reap some of those benefits from the benzoyle peroxide because if you rinse it off immediately you’re not really going to see much benefit from that so you could use this in the shower while you wash your hair maybe put on a face mask however you want to use it and it’s something that’s definitely been helping me and as part of my acne skincare regimen so good okay moving on from the face mask irritation and breakouts category let’s just talk about a moisturizer i’ve been loving it’s a very new launch from vana cream and it’s their daily facial moisturizer for sensitive skin the reason i love this is because it’s a little bit more elevated than their lotion and moisturizing cream those two products while they are great for sensitive skin and similar to the cleanser are some of the only things that i can use to moisturize my skin when i’m irritated they’re very very bare bones like so stripped back whereas this one is pretty basic as well but also has hyaluronic acid and ceramides to help dehydrate and replenish the skin which i love so it’s just a little step up for vana cream i’ve really been loving this it works so well under makeup it’s really nice and lightweight but still feels hydrating perfect daytime moisturizer i’ll show you guys here okay next i actually have an eye cream and i’ve told you guys many times before that you don’t need an eye cream you can absolutely just use your moisturizer and bring it up to your eye area and be set there’s no need to purchase something separate but with that being said sometimes i just enjoy doing that i like to play around with different skin care products i’m reviewing so much for you guys and i like to try a new eye mask every now and then so this is the first the fix emergency eye mask with caffeine and cucumber juice and i love this let me show you what this thing looks like it’s amazing i’m obsessed with the way that this feels the way that it wears under makeup it’s just so so good oh my gosh i feel like it definitely de-puffs a little bit i don’t have the puffiest eyes of all time but when i do have a little bit of puffiness maybe haven’t gotten a lot of sleep i really feel like this helps my under eye area it’s not going to be the most insane transformation of all time but i’ve been in love i love the way that this feels and they do have another what’s it called the vacation brightening eye gel so they have another eye cream or gel that’s really similar to this but that one’s even thinner i prefer this one it’s just a little bit thicker a little more hydrating something a tiny bit creamier about it even though it’s very much so a gel based formulation oh i love this if you’re like me and realize that you don’t need a separate eye cream but also enjoy playing around with different products i recommend checking this one out the other moisturizing product that i have is actually a cream so versus this vana cream moisturizer which has more so of a lotiony consistency this one’s much thicker it’s from dermatology it’s also new it’s called their peptide night cream and it’s amazing so if you are looking for a new moisturizer that has a thicker consistency or maybe you want one for the night time and this could be your daytime this is so so nice let me just show you what this looks like i’m sorry but i want this on my neck right now this stuff feels like a fluffy cloud the formula is so amazing i am obsessed something about it also feels really refreshing i don’t know if that makes any sense i don’t know what it is refreshing nourishing incredibly hydrating the softest pillowiest consistency ever i love dermatology you guys know that not only do they have really nice ingredients in their products tons of peptides in here plus other anti-aging and just overall complexion improving ingredients but the formulation of every single product is just next level so i love that brand i do have a discount code with them it’s just abby 20.
so abby with an e 2-0 and that will get you 20 off their entire site which makes this of course more affordable obviously it’s a discount and finally i have three different sunscreens to talk through with you guys again all things i’ve already mentioned on my channel and they all are actually asian sunscreens shocker i just have really found a love for asian sunscreens over the past few months i’ve tested so many and they are so good like they’re absolutely superior to the sunscreens that we have available in the us and thankfully sometimes i feel like my fingers just don’t work like i can’t hold on to anything that’s why my phone is always shattered anyway what i was saying is thankfully we have the ability to actually purchase these items even though they’re not us sunscreen so i got all of these from yeah style a lot of them are also available on amazon i will have everything linked below in this video again those are also affiliate links if you’re interested in purchasing anything that i talk about it’s much appreciated but no pressure of course so let’s talk through these the first is the anessa shiseido moisture uv sunscreen mild milk for sensitive skin this is an spf 35 and i love this because it’s such a good option for sensitive skin no fragrance no essential oils no irritants this is what it looks like so it’s not the lightest weight asian sunscreen that i’ve ever tried but i kind of like that about this one the consistency is a little bit unique because it is still lightweight it still is really nice and liquidy but it also feels very hydrating and moisturizing so if you have dry skin i feel like you’ll be obsessed with this or if you just have sensitive skin i feel like sometimes it’s just so nice to have that extra hydration even if you’re not the driest of all time sensitivity just you feel like you want to nourish the skin and this definitely has that benefit to it it feels nourishing feels conditioning and it definitely helps to soften and smooth the skin so if you have flaky skin or have face mask irritation that’s actually a nice one as well because it kind of helps to smooth out that area the second is the verdeo uv moisture gel this is an spf 50.
oh my gosh this one is so good another one that’s really really nice for sensitive skin it has aloe and green tea in it this one is lighter weight than that shiseido and nessa one you guys can see there how quickly that spread out so this one’s definitely lighter weight a little bit more liquidy it dries down more quickly and is amazing if you have oily skin i still think it’s something that almost all skin types would really enjoy but if you feel like this one would have been a little bit too thick for you if you’re oily look into this one it’s so so good i also love using both of these together like and the last one that i absolutely have to include is from the brand purito and it’s their cintala green level unscented sun sunscreen this one’s also an spf 50 it’s also great for sensitive skin essential oil free fragrance free oh my goodness i love this so much check it out i feel like that one is a nice hybrid between the verdeo and shiseido and nasa because it’s a little bit more hydrating a little bit thicker than this one but not quite as thick as this one even though i wouldn’t say any of them are thick it’s just like compared to each other oh man this one’s so good and has some really amazing ingredients in it like the centaur asiatica which helps to decrease inflammation it helps with wound healing it’s a calming soothing ingredient all right that’s it for skin care let’s move on to hair care so the first one you guys i talked about this a couple times already it’s a dry shampoo it’s from tresemme it’s so affordable it’s called their between washes volumizing shampoo why is this so good i’ve tried so many dry shampoos i talked through a ton with you guys in my what video was that it was my hair training video where i also reviewed a bunch of dry shampoos and this one’s just my favorite i reach for it all the time i reach for it over all of my other dry shampoos and i think it’s okay i think it’s just because it’s the best at absorbing oil without feeling heavy i’ve tried a lot of dry shampoos that do a really nice job at absorbing oil but just feel like they’re weighing down my hair and i can feel them on my scalp do you know what i’m talking about where you have so much product in your hair that you feel like it’s warming up maybe that’s just a me thing but that can definitely happen to me with dry shampoos i don’t like feeling like i just have a bunch of product in my hair it’s gross and this i feel like i don’t at all i mean obviously i know that there’s dry shampoo there but it just has such a almost traceless residue while really really absorbing oils and not to the point where it’s too much where the top of my head looks powdery because i also don’t like that either there’s just a nice in between a fine line a balance for dry shampoos and for me i feel like this one is the perfect balance speaking of one two i get headaches easily from scents like that on products that just kind of linger fresh but then just kind of fades okay the next two products that i have i’m going to talk about together because the two of them together i just gave you a little sneak peek the two of them together are my current favorite combination for adding volume and texture to my hair that’s actually what i put in my hair today to i don’t even know what would we call this waves sure yep that’s what i used on my hair today to create whatever is going on here it’s the bumble and bumble thickening go big treatment it says it’s a volumizing concentrate that keeps hair up for hours and the alterna my hair my canvas anyway texture spray with botanical caviar so these two together i feel like just complement each other so so well it gives me volume it gives me texture it creates these really nice pretty waves so what i actually did here is curl my hair a few days ago and because my hair will not hold a curl for that long it will end up still having kind of a hint of a curl it’s more like a wave and getting a little bit poofy but without much structure to it so i spray these just kind of on my ends on this area of my hair get it pretty wet and then i will just kind of like scrunch it up if you will that reminds me of middle school did you guys have swimming in middle school like we had a pool in our middle school and the thing was after swimming class to put gel in your hair and scrunch it up so this tight little you know what i’m talking about that was like the thing that kind of reminds me of that but i do that motion really loosely and it just kind of fluffs up my hair and creates these waves which i love i don’t know about you guys i don’t know if that’s going to be for everyone but i think it’s such a pretty combination and i can also use those products before i curl my hair as well to give me texture and volume but of course actual curls are different than this so love those next is a hair mask from briogeo and it’s their be gentle be kind avocado and kiwi superfood mask this is so good i love the consistency of this this is like my perfect weight for a hair mask if you will like check out how nice and thick that is but it’s not too thick and heavy again there’s a fine line with masks i want one that’s going to be really nice and hydrating nourishing help to detangle and condition the hair of course but i don’t want it to be so heavy that it weighs my hair down because i definitely have hair that can be weighed down easily i feel like this one is just the perfect in between it’s so good oh i just feel like my hair feels so nice after i use this and i just also love this packaging it’s so dang cute really good hair mask all right next let’s move on to makeup and start off with foundation i have two different foundations the first is one that i really recently uploaded a review on and it’s the ordinary serum foundation this blew me out of the water i was not expecting to love it as much as i did i don’t even think i was expecting to love it at all it’s so good i’ve never tried a foundation like this it’s the lightest weight foundation that i own yet it still has a really good amount of coverage that’s all i need to say i feel like it’s beautiful and the other is one that surprised me so much so it’s the wet and wild photo focus foundation which i know is nothing new this was all the rage on youtube a few years ago and i just never tried it because i remember watching reviews where people said it smelled like paint and i was like no way am i putting that on my face especially when i’m acne prone and that just it sounded like a really bad idea but when i was prepping for my fragrance free foundation review for you guys i was researching so many different affordable options and i was like i should just look into this and kind of see what’s going on i was more so curious to see if i could figure out what would cause that paint smell couldn’t find it but i couldn’t find anything that would be irritating or sensitizing on this ingredient label no fragrance so it could just be you know the way well it obviously is the way that the ingredients mix together that create that kind of unpleasant smell it’s not the worst thing ever and this doesn’t linger on my face either so i can’t smell it throughout the day otherwise that would be a no but aside from that the foundation itself is gorgeous this is definitely my maddest foundation but it’s also so flawless and it’s not so mad to the point where it leaves me looking chalky or dry or lifeless it’s just like flawless so good if you have oily skin holy crap you need to check this out if you have combo skin like me check it out if you have really dry skin it’s not going to be for you because it definitely does cling on to dry patches quite a bit and kind of exaggerate them but other than that man is this stuff flawless and so affordable for reference i have the shade golden beige in this and 2.
0 neutral which is light medium neutral in the ordinary foundation okay i have one highlighter and this feels so random it’s actually just a mini that i picked up and it’s the ofra highlighter in rodeo drive again another one that’s not going to be new to you if you watch a lot of makeup videos this is also something back in the day that i feel like everybody raved about and i just never got around to purchasing it until a few months ago and it’s beautiful i’ll show you guys here it’s just this gorgeous light kind of champagne gold gosh that is so pretty i feel like one of the major reasons i love this so much is because it’s not too bronzy orangey gold which can look super pretty don’t get me wrong but really only when i have a deep self tan which i have given up on as of late i feel like it’s that time of year where i’m like i’ve been doing this for too long we’re gonna take a break from the self tanner this is one that i love on my skin when i’m fair but it still works when i have a self tan and it’s just a really nice kind of in between i think a light gold is so beautiful on so many different skin tones again as long as it’s one that’s a little bit more neutral which i feel like this one is because it has that kind of champagne reflect like it’s not completely orange gold like i said so pretty i love the formula not too powdery and chalky but it also doesn’t look too wet on the skin so if you’re not into a super intense highlight that one’s pretty because you can just kind of melt it in your finger dab it on give yourself a nice little strobe to the cheek well not strobe because that means intense but you know what i mean nice little eye catching glow okay lips my fingers i have a few different lip products here that i want to share with you guys it’s mainly the lipsticks and then things that can help to complement it but it’s these lipstick shades so i’m going to be doing a video very soon on my favorite nude lipsticks of all time at least if you guys want to see that let me know in the comments below and i will i’ve been on the hunt to find my perfect nude lipstick and i don’t just mean one like i want a few different options with different tints to them but just all lipsticks that i feel like really compliment my face because just the slightest change in undertone can really make a lipstick all of a sudden be very unflattering really quickly like it doesn’t take much to make a lipstick flattering versus unflattering at least for me that’s not an everybody thing but that’s why i have just been testing out so many so i have a few different lipsticks here two are from mac but the first is from revlon i was so confused by how much i loved this not because it’s revlon i love affordable but because i just felt like it was kind of what i had been missing in my life the undertone was perfect and it was that kind of lipstick where it looks really pretty sheer some lipstick shades just look kind of weird when they’re not full opacity but at the same time a lot of lipsticks that need that full opacity just look too intense on me sometimes this one is gorgeous so it’s 755 bare doll from revlon it’s a really beautiful beigey pink and i love this because of that mostly beige tint to it nude lips that are too corally or too peachy do not look very good on me at all it’s just not flattering on my face and i feel like that one is so perfect and i can wear it on its own and it’s one of my more sheer lipsticks that i own so if you’re kind of into that your lips but better look that formula is beautiful let me see just their cream formulation but if i want to kick it up a notch and make it a little bit more full coverage i like to use a lip liner and a gloss on top because i’m obsessed with a good gloss so a really nice lip liner that’s also affordable is from nyx and it’s called their slide-on glide on stay on and definitely turn on waterproof extreme color lip liner my gosh in the shade nude suede shoes i’ll show you right now i mean it’s almost the exact same color oh i didn’t even realize that no wonder i love these together this is the lip liner as you can see it’s a little bit beigier a little bit more of a cool undertone this one leans a little bit more not orange but you can see the difference there they’re not exactly the same but i feel like they complement each other very very well so you could totally just do the two of those but if you want to add a gloss my all-time favorite gloss is from buxom it’s their full-on plumping lip polish and white russian and sugar these are my two favorite shades i continue to repurchase them i’ll show you guys right here so white russian definitely tends to lighten any lip color that i have on so if you have a shade that ended up being a little bit darker than you want white russian is gorgeous to throw on top sugar kind of has the opposite effect doesn’t deepen lip colors too much but a little bit so here we have white russian and here we have sugar what look at these okay two more to get through they’re both from mac one is called love you back and one is called viva glam two kind of embarrassing these are so similar right next to each other so this is viva glam two and this is love you back i guess let’s throw on the revlon there for reference while we’re at it that’s not the right one so bear it all definitely is warmer than these two so if you cannot really well i shouldn’t say if you can’t pull off you can pull off whatever you want but if you personally feel that you cannot pull off something that’s a little bit warmer like this even though it’s not super corally then definitely check out these two so again aviva glam 2 and love you back love you back is kind of like a grayish a nude with a purpley undertone and viva glam 2 is similar but has more pink to it than love you back as you can see there they also work really well with this lip liner lip gloss combo so okay wait i almost forgot to talk about this i have a concealer i feel like i haven’t talked about concealer in so long this is it pronounced kaja kaja k-a-j-a i’m not fully sure kaja don’t settle concealer so i was not sure for a while how i felt about this because a lot of the concealers that i have are much more pigmented more opaque and not as watery as this one but as i’ve continued to use it i have realized i really like it i’ll show you guys so the shade i have here is zero four waffles what i love that name that makes my hand look nice work hand so i feel like it looks really good this is such a good concealer if you’re one of those people that prefers really really light natural looking makeup if you’re into no makeup makeup you don’t like anything full glam this is beautiful it’s very lightweight kind of has that watery feel like i was talking about but still gives you coverage and helps to cover any discoloration that you have it’s not going to be the fullest coverage concealer ever so if you have really intense dark circles or maybe dark spots on your face that you’re trying to conceal this is not going to be the one for you but if you’re okay i would say it’s more of a medium coverage concealer if you’re okay with medium coverage that looks really fresh and a little bit more natural compared to some other concealers and this is definitely one worth checking out i’ve really been liking it that’s what i actually have on today with the ordinary serum foundation so these work really really well together and i mean don’t get me wrong you guys know i love a good full glam and like i said i’ve really come around to this and learned to love it so it’s just one i had to wear myself up to awesome concealer this one doesn’t have any fragrance or irritants or anything like that either i would recommend it now we are done with hair care skincare and makeup well i mean some of these are hair and face related but not hair care and skincare products we have all my miscellaneous random items that just feel like they need to go in a cardboard box okay let’s start off with a couple hair items that i have the first is going to be something that you may recognize from my hair training video it’s my scalp scrubber this is such a good scalp scrubber first of all how cute is this pink i mean it has a handle on it obviously it’s got the little scrubbies but they are rubber i believe is the right word to describe that but i like that because it’s not going to be too rough on the scalp so they’re still firm enough to where they really really get in there good but it’s not in a super aggravating way so if you are like me and you only wash your hair once a week or maybe a couple times a week and you’re trying to really loosen product buildup this is an amazing product to use both out of the shower and in the shower or maybe you just are looking for a little nice scalp massage i love this it’s from amazon it came in a pack of two so i actually have a black one sitting right here that i’m gonna keep this far away from me because i found eli rubbing the bottom of his feet with it he saw me scrubbing my scalp with this and goes that’s for your scalp i’ve been using that on my feet anyway moving on my god really nice scalp scrubber i like this a lot now these jaw clips y’all okay i love jack clips they’re amazing they’re my favorite thing ever one of my favorite thing to do with jaw clips is actually use them to secure buns on top of my head but i use smaller jaw clips for that i need to pull them out so i use ones that are more this size and i will twist the bun and secure it with that clip on the top of my head and then i’m not using a ponytail so it’s not going to break and tug at my hair love doing that but these don’t hold up my hair my hair obviously is too long for that so what i want to do this like really nice little oh sweet heavens that tug what i want to do like the 90s updo like this because i still love to rock that even if it’s out of style i feel like it’s kind of back in style when i do that i have to use a larger jaw clip and i just had ones this size even this is too small for me so i was on the hunt for jumbo jaw clips that were actually cute i feel like a lot of them had like rhinestones and just stuff where i was like no thank you i found these on amazon okay how amazing are the e’s i thought that was gonna break for a second so they are matte they have really nice pretty neutral colors it came in a pack of four so it has black this beigey pink this beigey beige nude a little bit orangier and then there’s also a green where is it olive no it’s deep i’m gonna go get it what shade of green even is this i don’t know this is like the perfect shade of green i’ve told you guys i’m not really into color it’s not my thing so at first when i saw it came with a green one i was like well i just won’t use it it’s so annoying of me but it’s so pretty it’s like a mix between sage and mint and i don’t even know what sage green is but that’s what i feel like it is i was wearing this with a camo shirt the other day and i felt really cute and matchy so i love those jaw clips they are the perfect length if you have longer hair and you’re also on the lookout for jaw clips that can hold up your hair and that little 90s updo check those out they’re also just nice to pull away from your face like this for washing your face get it out of your face oh that feels nice i hate i hate hair touching my face okay so love those gel clips okay a couple skin related items that are not actually skin care that i have the first this gorgeous black microfiber towel so i got this off of amazon i think it came in a pack of six and i love using microfiber towels so the makeup eraser and face halos for makeup removal but i also wanted one that was a little bit bigger and when you’re using products like this for makeup removal you need a few because obviously you can’t wash them every single night so i just have a little bin that i keep on top of my dryer that i will throw the dirty ones in and i need some on backup so i wanted to try a different kind that was just a little bit bigger and i found these black microfiber towels and it’s perfect for makeup removal it’s so soft so something like this is going to be much gentler on your skin than just your standard cotton wash cloth or washcloths even cotton you know what i mean your standard washcloth that’s definitely a lot rougher on the skin than something like this so soft so great for makeup removal so what i will do is put water on this then i put my micellar water on it and then i use that to remove my makeup amazing and i just like that it’s black i really don’t like white towels for makeup removal because i don’t like to have them stain you know what i mean they’re great i’m gonna get emotional about this so so the other week i was coming home after having two weddings back to back where i was the makeup artist not same day but two different days back to back where i was the freelance makeup artist and when i’m doing freelance when i’m doing makeup on clients i am wearing a face mask of course and the masks that i was wearing were just your average really inexpensive cheap fabric masks which are obviously totally fine but my skin cannot deal i had it looked like i literally had a rug burn on my chin like i had fallen onto the carpet and just skidded on my chin it was raw it was red it was painful same with the sides of my mouth right here and then as they kind of started to heal they were flaking pretty badly i still have a spot here that is healing honestly under here i can still feel some remnants i mean things like that take a while to heal when they’re that raw and red and irritated ugh my skin was mad so i was just thinking about it i was like i wish i could take my satin pillowcase and put elastics on that and turn it into a mask like there’s got to be something i can do to use a nicer fabric on my face so it doesn’t freak out and then i was like i am sure satin face masks exist and yes they do what i don’t even like the fact that i was thinking about makeshifting my pillowcase into a face mask and couldn’t just think look up a satin face mask sometimes my brain but sure enough i found some satin face masks i mean these colors you guys yes these are a neutral lover’s dream so i have a black one what is this like taupe silvery taupe and they did have other colors as well so i think they had white maybe a cream maybe a beige maybe a pink as well who knows again it’ll be linked below where i purchased these off of amazon but oh my gosh you guys i’m already noticing a difference in using these masks they are so much gentler on my skin than the masks that i was wearing holy cow holy cow i’m so glad i found these even if you don’t have irritation like this if you’re breaking out from masks using something like this a gentler fabric that’s softer may help you out so i’ve been obsessed i’m so glad i found these i haven’t worn these ones yet because i bought so many so that’s why they have tags on them but i also really like them because they have these little thingies sheer thingies at the end so that you can adjust if you want to pull it to make it tighter or a little bit looser so they are adjustable and they’re also cute but they’re just so much gentler on my skin so i would like to give a round of applause to whoever created these thank you so much thank you so much all right next let’s move on to books so i have two different books that i want to share with you guys the first one that i’m going to share is one that i did talk about in my get ready with me get to know me video that again will be linked below how many times am i going to say that it’s called the woman in the window and i want to say it again because this is so good this is my well okay it’s tied with turn of the key but most recently this is the best book that i’ve read it is a true page turner through and through i feel like as i’ve gotten older and just have read more books i’m not as impressed as easily which is kind of sad i feel like when you’re younger everything is just a good book not so much anymore there’s definitely books that i read where i’m like uh it was good but just like nothing amazing no this one’s amazing i could not put it down i flew through it so fast i feel like i read it in three days which says a lot because i don’t have time to read that frequently but something about the way that this is written is just it’s like addicting to read i love the writing so the authors aj finn it’s such a good story and it’s written amazingly well it’s definitely a thriller so it’s kind of scary not like horror story it’s just go freaking read this book and the other one is one that i forgot to mention in my get ready with me video and it’s one of my other more recent reads as well i read this right at the beginning of quarantine right before the hulu series came out but it’s little fires everywhere i’m sure a lot of you have heard of this it’s so good by celeste ng is that how you just say that ng i don’t know but this is totally different for me it’s a completely different style of book than i’m normally drawn to normally my kind of book is this thriller suspense murder mystery this is totally different but again i feel like was written beautifully and in a way that made me not want to stop reading it was so good i just felt so drawn to the character why did i just get chills sometimes i embarrass myself i felt so drawn to the characters and was just so obsessed with the storyline if you guys have read this can we talk about it below i feel like the one thing i wanted to know more about was mia’s backstory i feel like that could have been a whole book in it of itself and that’s something they didn’t get into in the hulu series as much i didn’t personally love the hulu series i thought that the book was better and i liked the way that the characters were represented in the book better than the show i want her to do a whole separate backstory on mia’s story because it’s so it was so interesting to me i loved it such a good book so if you’re not really into murder mysteries or thrillers or maybe you are and you just want a change of pace check out little fires everywhere this is the most random thing ever for me but i have to share it it’s called listerine ready tabs and they are sugar-free alcohol-free i have the flavor clean mint and it comes in a little pack of eight the pack that i bought off amazon though came with like 10 of these or maybe 20.
something ridiculous because eli and i cannot stop with these they’re addicting it’s literally mouthwash and a chewable tablet and i love that it’s chewable i don’t want to chew on gum because that starts to get gross and if you don’t have mouthwash and you’re on the go this is literally mouthwash it’s very intense it’s not like a pleasant mint that you want to suck on it’s like oh my gosh it’s so cold but it really cleans out your mouth okay i want to bring this up because i got a question about this mirror i’m going to try not to blind you guys it’s this little hand mirror that i got from amazon pale pink color of course it just has your classic like regular sized mirror on one side magnifying mirror on the other but i like it because of this handle that you can grab onto it sorry this is like so weird trying to show you a mirror that’s this handle on the end that you can grab onto and i use this while i film if i’m ever applying skincare or makeup i’ll just hold it down here and then apply that way but it’s also just good for close-ups for makeup so if you have a mirror that’s just a little bit farther away and you want to get up closer with eyeliner or mascara or really anything this is such a good little handheld mirror so i wanted to give that a shout out because i have had someone ask about this mirror and where i got it so that’s where if you want a handheld mirror okay next is a planner you could probably guess that about me that i am a planner person pen to paper all the way i write everything down i have like 30 lists going at all times i am obsessed with planning and organizing i love it and forever ago actually in a favorites video i talked about how i made my own planner pages that you could just print out every week because i used to walk into the office every day and having something this heavy with me plus my gym clothes in my backpack maybe my work laptop my lunch it was too heavy i felt like my back was breaking so i needed to figure something else out and i was just starting to feel like planners didn’t have the setup that i wanted so i loved those planner pages when i had them but i have just felt the need to have something like this again where i have both a longer looking month view and a daily view and also an agenda so this is a day designer planner so every single day you have an agenda from 6am to 8pm and i love that it gives you half hour blocks i don’t want just one hour i need the little half hours because you’re doing different things in that full hour so you get the agenda you get a top three and i like that they actually have boxes because i love to be able to check things off like i’m the type of person that will write things down that i already did just so i can check it off so i love that i’ve just been feeling not myself lately in quarantine just a little bit less organized than i would like to be not eating as healthy as i like to and i just really am trying to get back to myself and the things that i really love and the things that make me me so i just was like i need something that gives me a little bit of a longer view even if we have no idea what’s even gonna happen three weeks from now i’m excited to just sit down pen to paper with this and get to planning i love players okay last category quickly i have a few different clothing items that i want to share the first is the one that i’m wearing right now it’s this really cute hoodie that has these little distressed holes here okay but it’s like not super obvious really just cute loungy i got the size did i get an extra large yes i got an extra large because i love just baggy extra large clothing especially sweatshirts and hoodies so this one is from the brand cozy from target and it’s actually cropped but here i’ll show you i’m wearing sweats i’m about to expose myself and they don’t even match okay do we see like how long this is and i’m super tall i’m 5 10 and a half i have an extremely long torso so this will be longer on you guys than it is on me but i also love how long the sleeves are because i like in a sweatshirt when the sleeves are like you know i just love everything big and baggy and comfortable so i love this it’s so so soft and they also have a gray one that i have as well and that one is super cute too i get nervous to talk about clothes because i know that they don’t stick around as long as like skincare and makeup items which seem to be more permanent so i really hope that these are still in stock when i post this video fingers crossed but i also know just clothes like this i feel like anywhere lately just blow out immediately it’s so hard to find just like casual stuff these days because everyone is looking for them then another target sweatshirt is actually a men’s sweatshirt and it’s this levi’s one i also got this in an extra large i love a gray crew neck it’s huge y’all and it’s so comfy this one’s even thicker than this cozy one which is pretty actually lightweight oh this is just like a good heavy duty fall winter sweatshirt i’m gonna live in this this winter holy crap i’ll show you the length of this as well so again men’s levi’s extra large relaxed crew neck sweatshirt it looks like is what it is i just love the plain levi’s logo pair of leggings converse vans i’m set okay very last item but very near and dear to my heart something that became a staple in my life when quarantine started are my apartment shoes everybody needs a pair of apartment shoes even if you don’t live in an apartment you need house shoes or condo shoes or townhouse shoes these are the best ever so like when i need to go get my mail downstairs or need to go print something downstairs or go get coffee downstairs but i don’t want to put on tennis shoes and tie up sneakers hello and usually i’m always wearing socks in my apartment so i don’t want to put on flip-flops or i don’t even know if i have flip-flops anymore i think everything else that i have is like sandals that you would wear out and about and that’s not comfy to put on to go down and get coffee in your cozies on sunday morning these adidas slides i got them from amazon are the comfiest things ever eli was walking around the apartment wearing these until i finally was like i’m gonna get you a pair of girl so i got him a black and white pair but they have so many different colors so had to get pale pink they had kind of like an indigo blue that i really wanted to get cute colors comfy as heck i spilled foundation all over this one and i have yet to wipe it off apartment shoes have changed my life i wear these all the time all right oh my gosh we made it to the end i’m scared this video is gonna be super long but i hope that you guys enjoyed it either way even if i can shorten it down a little
