Hi, friends! Happy Monday. I looked at the calendar yesterday and couldn't believe Thanksgiving is now only two weeks away. I'm ready to put up my Christmas tree and start Holiday shopping. What about you? In other news, another busy week awaits. Here's this week's Case of the Mondays:
I've just added this new In-Shower Body Lotion to my daily routine and I'm hooked! Last week, I headed to Viola Chocolat to celebrate Nivea's newest In-Shower Body Lotion launch in Cocoa Butter. Myself and other editors indulged in the most delicious truffles (seriously) and decorated a box just for us. FYI, edible glitter is my new favorite thing!
With the temperature dropping, it's time to really amp up your body moisturizing routine. Lately, I've been extremely lazy when it comes to applying lotion and this is my new savior. You shower as normal and then apply Nivea's In-Shower Body Lotion. Rinse and voilà! Skin is left instantly smooth and feeling luxurious. I was thoroughly surprised at how smooth and moisturized my skin felt after showering. Here's to smooth skin Mondays.
I just tried Eve Lom products for the first time and I can't believe it took me to so long to do so. I absolutely love the packaging and the product is even better. My current favorite product is the Radiance Lift Cream that helps hydrate and firm skin. It's naturally fragranced with rose otto oil, raspberry and carrot oil which protect skin from oxidative stresses. Sound perfect for a Monday, right? I use in the morning after cleansing and before applying makeup.
I attended a preview for Oribe's new launches a few weeks ago and instantly was hooked on their new Luminous Hair & Body Oil. Oribe is known for the indulging scents of their products and this scent is no different. I love using this product on my hair and body to lock in moisturize and leave locks with a soft, subtle glow.
ARROJO Curl Definer, $19
When ARROJO contacted me to try their products, I was pleasantly surprised to find out they had curl products. As a curly hair girl, I'm always excited to hear when a brand has products that cater to my needs. Curl Definer is a liquid gel that adds hold and definition to curly hair. It also helps fight frizz and leaves curls soft and not crispy like some products. I use on damp hair after washing then let it air dry.
I've been experimenting with sleep masks as of late. I was very intrigued by this bouncy sleeping mask from The Body Shop. It designed to be left on while you sleep and the overnight mask works to leave skin looking bouncier and replenished. The texture of the mask is super smooth and when you touch, it literally bounces back! I've been using every few weeks when I need a little boost in my skin and can see a difference when I awake.
Honest Beauty Crème Blush in Truly Teasing, $22
Jessica Alba's venture in the beauty space has been quite a successful one. I've been using a few products from her line and have been impressed with the overall quality. I love the crème blush since you can use on lips or cheeks! Truly Teasing makes a great autumn shade and will look good on every skin tone.
Honest Beauty also just announced their #LetsBeHonest campaign to inspire women to show how they use beauty to bring out their best. You can also try on and share Honest Beauty looks live with the Honest Beauty App.
