As you can tell I have quite a few moisturizers. I think I have become part reptile. Half due to my new climate here in Washington and half due to well, pregnancy.
I have tried to be as natural as possible but I'm living on a maybelline budget here with a Chanel taste so I do the best I can. I still have to eat around here!
I just want to go through my products and explain my use for it and my general consensus of it.
// Candle: Okay, I added this in here because my sense of smell is somewhat what I believe a dog's sense of smell is. I smell everything. It's annoying most of the time. I have many candles and oil burners and this candle currently burns quite frequently. It's a very clean and fresh scent and really puts me in a calm and happy mood.
// Aveeno Dry Shampoo: I love this dry shampoo because it has a very fresh and clean scent. Can you tell I like fresh and clean scents? I use a tresemme one as well but it tends to leave my hair with a lot of build up. This one I can use for a few days before I actually need to wash again. Let's be real I hate washing my hair and the longer I can get away with it, Im going too!
//Lush Deodorant: Okay, straight up this stuff is weird. I bought this product some months ago, used it a few times and then put it away. I was reading an article about anti-perspirant and it's link to cancer and so I decided to give this another try. You pretty much just dab it on and the powder comes off and you're set. It is not as strong as the deodorant I was previously using but I feel much better about what is going on my body.
//Mama Bee Butter: I currently babysit the sweetest eight month old and her mother was very kind to pass this on to me. I have definitely fallen in love with it! The scent isn't to strong and the butter isn't super heavy, like some can be, so it's very easy to apply on my tummy area.
//EOS Honeysuckle Lip Balm: It"s the best chap stick ever. That's all you need to know.
//Neutrogena Moisturizer: It's almost 100% natural and free of all the parabans and junk and it feels really nice on the skin. It smells sort of like oatmeal and shea. My skin soaks it right up. I keep this one in my purse because I have a few spots on my face that are just bone dry so I use this to touch up moisture throughout the day.
//Alba Moisturizer: This one is amazing! 100% natural and vegan friendly. I use this one in the morning and at night.
//Avon Hand Cream: This was a Christmas present and I just threw it in my purse. It's not bad and doesn't really have a scent which I like when I am applying in public. I get so annoyed when people put on strong creams in public. Anyways, It's nice but I think I need something stronger. My hands feel like a lizard.
//Eucerin Body Lotion: I use this at home for the rest of my body. I like this because it helps with sensitive skin and relieves itchiness.
//Walgreens Ointment: I use this for those tough spots that are just so dry and could possibly crack. Also, when Daisy doesn't want to be held and scratches me. Yes, isn't she a lovely feline.
//Kleneex Tissues: Any other pregnant lady out there a runny nosed faucet? These are a must have for my hormones which makes my nose very stuffy!
//Rainbow Light Pre-natals: Okay, let me tell you I was so sick for weeks! Obviously, I just thought well I have morning sickness. One day I skipped a vitamin on accident and I felt like I was on top of the world. Lightbulb! My generic target brand pre-natals were not cutting it so I switched to a food based organic vitamin and feel a million times better!
