It’s been quite some time since I have done a favorites post (I think Fall Favorites was the last one) but as the end of the year 2015 comes, I figured I would go through and pick out the things I have come to love the most or have been introduced to and loved during the past year.
Peter Thomas Roth Peeling Gel: I have dealt with troubled skin for so long. As soon as I started my Freshman year of high school my skin just decided it was going to do whatever it wanted. Over the summer I started to get texture and rough patches on my face so the lovely skincare rep from Sephora suggested this. I will never EVER go back to my life before this product. For the first time in years, people have been commenting on how good my skin looks.
Turtle Necks: This may seem silly but I have a deep love of turtle necks. If it has a turtle neck (even a mock turtle neck) I love it. I bought a poncho earlier on in the Fall because it had a giant chunky knit turtle neck. They’re cute and cozy but at the same time they can be dressed up to look really chic.
Origins GinZing Eye Cream: I had been using the Benefit one forever until recently. I had gotten a sample of this (everything in my life starts as an innocent sample) and started using it when I ran out of the Benefit one. Its a lot lighter than the Benefit one, has a citrus-y scent, and a brightening shimmery finish. My puffy dark under eye circles are no more and I look wide awake!
Moroccan Oil: Living in the humid climate of SC a bit of a light oil is perfect for taming hair. The light formula doesn’t make my scalp look greasy and also has a divine scent that all my friends and I love.
Kat Von D Everlasting Lip (Lolita): I broke down and finally bought it. Sephora was sold out online for so long that when I went into the store with a friend and saw it, I immediately snatched one up. The color is similar to the Studded Kiss Lip Stick (I talked about the perfect dupe for that being Maybelline Touch of Spice) but is a bit warmer. I may have splurged a bit but it was worth it.
Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer: I had heard so many good things about the Nars tinted moisturizer that I went in to check it out for myself. No idea I would end up purchasing it (despite my oily skin) and falling in love with it. It is perfect for every day and half the time I use it instead of foundation when I go out.
Flannels: Always loved flannels. I wear them with anything and everything. If there is ever a moment in time when I don’t have a flannel, something is very wrong.
These next two didn’t make it on the original image but have also been loves for this year.
LovingTan 2 Hr Express Mousse: It gives the most gorgeous and natural tan without taking hours or a trip to the tanning salon. A couple pumps and a buffing mitt are all you need. Let it sit for a couple hours and voila! You look as if you just spent a week sunbathing on the coast without the sunburn.
Although this is a very recent addition to my life but its phenomenal! The Bellami 6-in-1 Curling Wand creates a variation of beautiful curls. My hair is still soft and is able to hold the curl for so long (it usually falls pretty quickly whenever I curl it). Now if only I could get a curling iron like this with a clip so I could do barrel curls…
Anyways, those were some of my top ten favorite things from throughout the year 2015. If you guys had anything that you loved and think I should have in my life as well, please let me know! I love trying new things and falling in love with recommendations.
