November is over, and I’m actually glad. This month felt very empty because I couldn’t seem to focus on schoolwork, my job, or maintaining friendships. I’m fortunate it ended with Thanksgiving weekend, because I think that break was what I needed to restart and get back on track. This month’s products are somewhat focused around that rejuvenation.
Caress | Evenly Gorgeous Exfoliating Body Wash
This smells like brown sugar. It does a really great job of exfoliating my skin without being too harsh, and it feels pretty moisturizing, too! Did I mention it smells like brown sugar?
Coastal Scents | Revealed 2 Palette
When I first got this in September, I didn’t really use it much. I actually sort of regretted buying the palette since I felt a little overwhelmed by all the shades and already have a ton of eyeshadow. However, this month I’ve been using it a lot. I’ve been really appreciating the matte burgundies and purples, since I don’t have anything else like them!
These are the shades I’ve been using the most in November:
These eyeshadows are somewhat hard to capture on camera, but they are: peachy shimmer, lavender-purple shimmer, matte maroon, and burnished orange shimmer.
Yves Rocher | Camomile Day/Night Moisturizing Skin Cream
I rediscovered this product during November, and have been using it as my daily nighttime moisturizer. It’s really moisturizing but still absorbs quickly, and while initially strong the scent fades pretty quickly (it’s also a nice scent, although somewhat herbal).
Yves Rocher | Cranberry Mask
This product is also really moisturizing! And scented of bright cranberry and so easy to use.
Crabtree & Evelyn | Gardeners Hand Scrub with Pumice
Halfway through November, the skin on my hands started getting really dry. It felt like nothing I did helped moisturize them enough. Finally, I encountered this and after just one use the dry skin on my hands was entirely gone. I thought that what I needed to do to fix my hands was to inject as much moisture as possible into the dry skin, but I really just needed to get rid of it altogether. My hands really feel like new now!
Lifestyle Extra: There’s a breakfast place near where I live that serves the most amazing hot chocolate. They top it with creamy whipped cream, and it’s actually the best thing ever. Now that it’s November, it’s finally cold enough for me to order it!
