Hey, guys! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!
I don’t know about you, but I think the best product recommendations come from family and friends. In this day and age, we can add our favorite bloggers and YouTubers to that mix. I love reading and watching favorites posts and videos respectively. I wanted to share some things I’ve been loving lately with you! So, without further ado, in no particular order, let’s get into it!
Wet n Wild Gel Nail Polish
I love this nail polish! There’s a few reasons why. First of all, it’s a gel polish without the hassle of the UV light. What’s not to love about that, right? Secondly, it’s long lasting. Once applied, it lasts about a week. Another perk is that since this is a gel formula, it’s thick enough to easily touch up any chips that may form. That for me is a huge plus! They have so many beautiful colors to choose from as well. Check them all out here. My favorite color this summer has been MissyInPink. A great fall color option is Left Marooned. Both these colors look great on all skin tones, so you really can’t go wrong with either of them. If you’re looking for a nail polish that will wow you, check this out!
I’ve been using Bug Soother for years. Check out my previous posts (here and here). It’s a powerful bug spray protecting against gnats, no-see-ums, sand fleas, black flies, and mosquitoes. I would add ticks to the list as well. Luckily, though, this strong bug repellent doesn’t have a buggy smell. It actually smells good with hints of lemon and vanilla. The effectiveness coupled with the great smell is why I love this product! I know you might be thinking, “Hey, Missy Ann! Summer’s almost over, why are you just telling us about this now?” Fall is a great time to go outdoors. Even though the temps are cooler, there are still bugs out and about. Combat them with Bug Soother! Find it here. Use the code: MissyAnnIA for 25% off your first order!
Natural Glow Lotion
Natural Glow Lotion has been on the market for awhile now. It’s had my heart from the beginning. Jergens was the first brand to come out with the Natural Glow Lotion. Since then, there have been several brands that came out with knock-off versions. I’ve found that the Dollar General brand, the Target brand, and the CVS brand work just as well as the original. The scent of the Jergens, though, is by far the best. I love this product, because it builds up a subtle color over time. This makes it nearly impossible to mess up, over apply, and it doesn’t leave that strange orange tinge to your skin. Again, this seems like more of summer product and it certainly is. However, we can continue using this into fall. Temps are getting cooler, but that doesn’t mean we’re ready to stow away our skirts and shorts just yet. To keep that summer, sun-kissed glow, keep applying Natural Glow Lotion. If you haven’t tried this yet, I would highly recommend giving it a go! Find it here.
Silicone Bath Sponge
I first saw this recommended on the LIY blog. This blog post came at a timely point in my life. I had just bought another loofah after the one I had for only a couple months had fallen apart. The traditional loofahs I typically buy ring in around $1. The silicone bath sponge was $10. Normally, I would gravitate towards the $1 product, but in this case, I felt like the return on investment would be better with the bath sponge. It did take a little bit to get used to, but I’ve grown to love it. It holds up so well compared to typical loofahs. Plus, the silicone bath sponge dries out so no pesky bacteria can dwell in the loofah. I’ve found this does work better with body wash rather than bar soap, but that’s not a deal breaker. If you’re tired of buying traditional loofah after loofah after loofah, give these silicone bath sponges a shot. Find them here!
All things e.l.f.
By now, we all know I love when quality meets affordability. No brand does that better than e.l.f. Not all their products are a 10, but there’s so many that are fabulous! We can do nearly a full face of e.l.f. with the products I’ve picked out for my favorites today. First up, is the Flawless Finish Foundation (here). It’s perfectly named because it really leaves your skin looking flawless! Bonus points that they’ve recently expanded their shade range! Every foundation needs a concealer. Enter the camo concealer (here). Again, this is perfectly named because it truly camouflages any imperfections. If the color isn’t quite right, no fear. The Mix to Match Shade Adjuster is here to the rescue (here)! This product works wonders to perfectly adjust the shade of your foundation or concealer. It’s a must-have in any makeup collection! Now, let’s set everything with Beautifully Bare Sheer Tint Finishing powder (here). This keeps everything in place and softens the look of the skin. It’s a fabulous powder! For some color, e.l.f. blushes are everything (find my favorite here). They are bright, beautiful, and easy to apply. Speaking of bright and beautiful, not to mention comfortable, you can’t go wrong with e.l.f. lip products. I especially love their Tinted Lip Oil (here), Liquid Matte Lipstick (here), and their Essential Lip Stick (here). The e.l.f. brushes are also awesome. You can’t go wrong with any of these products. I highly recommend them!
That’s what I’ve been loving lately. Now, I would love to hear what you think! What have you been loving lately?
Thanks for stopping by! Have a fabulous day, lovelies!
