New Beginnings

Well it’s been a while since I’ve last written, but a lot has happened over the past few months. Most importantly, I got a new job! And it’s not just any job, but a dream job. I’m now a content strategist at Beamly, the digital content agency that was acquired by Coty back in October 2015. I’m so excited and I get to work on some amazing brands like Rimmel, Sally Hansen and Philosophy.

I’ve been at my new job for a few weeks now. I started during the busiest of times, the holidays! Since my last post, I’ve purchased many many beauty products. Please find the documented evidence below.

 

 

The last image shows some of my Christmas gifts! I was very very excited about the First Aid Beauty kit. That’s basically my favorite brand right now. Hope you all had a great holiday!

I just had two of my absolute favorite products run out. Lush Flying Fox shower gel and First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser. You may remember my last post of Empties, where I also had the F.A.B face cleanser. I do love this product. I feel like you can’t go wrong with this brand. So naturally, I must be off to sephora tomorrow to buy another! 

The Lush Flying Fox shower gel is one of my favorite scents. Seriously. I wish there were popular jasmine fragrances out there. I’d totally rock it. I’ve gone through a few bottles of this shower gel and they actually last a pretty long time. I think one of the employees told me that the gel doesn’t contain that much water so the formula is much more concentrated which is why a little will go a long way, and the product can last. I’m dying to go to Lush but for whatever reason I don’t have the same self control that I do when I go into Sephora. When I go to Lush I end up leaving with 4 or 5 things! Maybe it’s all the events that get me. 

What are your favorite products you’re constantly running out of?

I had 2 products that just happen to run out at the same time.

Bumble and Bumble Color Minded Shampoo— I bought this a long time ago. A very very long time ago. My issue with it was that it made my scalp so dry, I couldn’t use it anymore. But recently I began using a T-Gel shampoo on the top of my head/roots and this color shampoo for the mid-shaft to ends of my hair. I thought this was a smart way to finish the bottle but now as I am throwing this thing away I feel like my ends are drier than ever! Not good. No amount of deep conditioning seems to help either. All this being said, I ran out of this shampoo but will never buy this one again.

First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser–I’ve bought this cleanser 3 times now. Sephora offers a dual pack of the face cleanser and their moisturizer which is for extremely dry skin. I found great results using the cleanser throughout the winter and I still love it for the summer. Yes, my skin is that dry! Since I ran out of this I realize I need to get to a Sephora ASAP to buy another.
