It’s now March, and it is still way too cold. They say it comes in like a lion and what not. I guess that’s true… More not so great things at work, we’ve been through worse so I’m sure everything will work out. I guess I should share some of my favourite things for February. It was a short month and I have been brainstorming for a few days trying to come up with some thing to talk about. So here goes!
1. Fresh Soy Cleanser – This stuff is great! It smells like cucumbers, not unlike most of the Fresh products that I have tried recently. This face cleanser is calming, cooling and very refreshing. I have been using it with my Clarisonic for a couple weeks and I really like it. The only down side is the price, it’s expensive, and for something that I use twice a day I can’t justify spending $38 for a full size. Especially not when I am very happy with the Neutragena cleanser I have been using for a couple years and more recently with my Clarisonic. Maybe if I win the lottery, or get a big promotion at work. And I spend too much on beauty products and skincare, but I can’t with this. It’s offered is the 1.7 oz size in stater kits and offered as a sample frequently at Sephora so I know I can revisit it.
2. Fresh Rose eye gel – I have been using this eye gel for weeks now, I love the strong rose smell and my eye area is smoother and brighter. Yes, it’s $40.00 fr a full size, and this is my first purchase and I have no clue how long it will last and I feel like I put too much on when I use it, but I really like it. I think it addresses what I need it to right now. I know that once I start to age more and I get deeper lines and my skin looses elasticity I will need some thing stronger. I have only been using this eye gel at night because I find that the consistency is not conducive to putting primer, foundation, concealer and then powder on top.
3. Fresh Seaberry Restorative cream – I have also been using this for a few weeks. I love the scent and the consistency. I mainly put it on after my showers after shaving my legs and on my hands and elbows. It has a sort of lemony refreshing scent not like most Fresh products I have tried. I really like it, but I probably wouldn’t purchase this again because of the price. I have been using Aveeno for a couple years and for the money this for full size from Sephora is $26.00 I can get the same result for $11.00 for a two pack at Sam’s club and no fragrance (again I don’t mind, but Husband does).
And I am also loving home made pizza! Husband and I make some at least once a week. We make all different varieties. My favourites are chicken Cordon Bleu and Buffalo Ranch. We have not yet ventured into making our own crust. When I find a recipe I like we will. Right now we buy store made whole wheat crust and add what ever we have on hand. We then use our pizza stone to cook the pies (sometimes it is more than one in an evening!) Please share what your favourite pizza varieties are, I am always open to trying new foods! And on that note it’s time to end.
All for now,
