This heat is crazy. I feel sticky and dehydrated even though I drink water and Pocari a lot. My lips are dry and have been peeling too. I’ve been bummed out since I arrived home and this heat is not helping. Le sigh~ Games have been helpful plus a cup of Joe (yeah, I still drink it hot just because) though. Then I thought that instead of wasting energy getting bummed out, I’ll use the frustration on blogging. 😛
Late New Year’s greetings to you lovelies! 😀 Bringing you my first ‘Best of Beauty’ in 2015. I thought hard enough of what products I really liked last year. There’s hair and skin care faves besides makeup, surprisingly. I also found great beauty discoveries last year.
So here’s my body and skin care that I’ve been using since this year started. I think I should switch or add sunblock and SPF products in there. It’s summer time! But several of these are nearly empty, so I’ll definitely start using sunblock and other for summer products. 🙂
I probably have two years worth of amassed used and empties that need to be disposed. Be warned: This two-part blog may be long.
Bath & Body Works Body Lotion in Magnolia Blossom
This was a big favorite, but even if it works for my hands and arms, it wasn’t moisturizing enough for my always-dry feet. The scent is both floral and fruity. More on the former. The scent longevity of this body lotion is amaaaaaa~zing as it usually lasts for more than eight hours. I could forget about spraying on perfume or cologne.
I might have bought another bottle or of another variant if Bath & Body Works didn’t discontinue this scent.
Bath & Body Works HandiBac in Fresh Lemon
My dad bought several HandiBacs in a variety of scents. Fresh Lemon was one of them. I couldn’t figure out how this worked at first. When I did and it was like dry hand soap (like a counterpart of dry shampoo), then I knew it would be better than an AlcoGel. Unfortunately, Bath & Body Works have discontinued this too even if these sold like hot pancakes. :/
Hasn’t it been very cold lately? Colder than last year’s and this chilly weather even started earlier than I expected. I like it actually because I get to wear my jackets, sweaters, or blazers to work without arriving in the office looking as though I took a bath in my own sweat. But the AC in our office adjusts to the weather outside (because it’s fucked like that), so if baby it’s cold outside, then it’s way colder in the office. With the cold weather outside and chiller office, my skin from head to toe has suffered from extreme dryness. Thankfully I don’t have scaly skin, but it’s still annoying. I had to change some of my skin care products to keep up with my extremely dry skin.
