Share With You Sunday: 4/5/15-4/12/15

I want to get right to the chase today, as I've spent the past 2 days doing swatching, editing, and writing. I'm a bit burned on blogging for the next few days! I do have some stuff I wanted to share with you this week though!

Favorite Products of the Week:
Bath & Body Works Twisted Peppermint Deep Cleansing Hand Soap: Yes, it's April, not Christmas time. I love Twisted Peppermint though, and if you're like me you end up having immense excess of Bath & Body Works holiday collection stuff. I love this scent though. It's fresh, clean, and bright. I also prefer the deep cleansing formula much more than the foaming. This gets your hands clean and smells great! You probably can't get this currently at Bath & Body Works, but if you're like me, you probably have one laying around.

ScentSationals Bee Sweet Scented Wax Cubes: Again, with the wax cubes. I love these! One of my all time favorite scents is pure honey scent. This is exactly that, nothing frilly or perfumey added to it. Straight up honey! I stocked up on this one! I found this at Walmart for $2.

Almay Clear Gel Sensitive Skin Antiperspirant and Deodorant: Any name brand deodorant after a month or two of use breaks me out in horribly itchy rashes. I've been told to switch to natural no this or no that. I can't. I live in Florida, it is spring time. We're averaging 90 degree days with 60%+ humidity. I can't go natural without the antiperspirant. I am sorry. I sweat a lot. I'm not one of those fortunate people who do not sweat. I sweat even more in the heat and humidity. It is gross. It smells and I do not want to subject the inhabitants of earth to my sweaty stench. This Almay deodorant works for me. I've been using it consistently for 3 months without any beak outs or itchiness. It keeps the sweat to a minimum, and keeps me from stinking! I purchase this at CVS or Walgreens for around $4-$5. I

New To Me Products of the Week:
Pacifica Coconut Crushed Pearl Bronzing Body Butter: I'd say I have light skin, not super fair. I am afraid of most tanning products in fear of the result, but sometimes I want a bit of a bronze glow to my skin without that commitment. I thought I found that with this body butter. This adds a bronze glow to your skin without tanning it. I do like this, but I live in a humid climate. This took FOREVER to dry on me, and it will stain your clothes. This took in Florida humidity even in air conditioning about an hour to fully dry. It was semi-dry after 5-10 minutes. It wasn't soaking wet on my skin for an hour, but it did not feel completely dry until an hour later. I didn't feel comfortable moving around too much or touching my arms to my shirt in fear of it smearing on my clothes. I so wanted to love this, and perhaps if you live somewhere drier this would be better for you. I also wasn't a fan of the scent. It smells like coconut brownies or something of the sort. It's a delicious scent, but it completely overtakes you. You can't add any other perfume or body spray. You just smell like a coconut brownie all day. There are worse things, but I don't tend to like smelling like a baked good. I purchased this at Ulta for $18.

Wet n' Wild Fergie Shimmer Palette in Hollywood Boulevard: I've been getting into highlighters more as the weather warms up. I'm over matte by now, and want glowing and radiant makeup these days. I've been using this lightly as a cheek highlight and LOVE it. It's a beautiful champagne gold color when all the colors are swirled together. This really gives sa very luminous look without being glittery or tacky looking. You only need a light touch! Super cheap too. I paid around $5-$6 for this at CVS. Check out swatches on NouveaCheap!

The Body Shop Honeymania Lip Butter: I picked this up when it was on sale at The Body Shop recently. I love lip products. I'm sure most of us do. I love the Honeymania scent also. Clearly, this meant I needed to try this product. This is a very luxurious lip butter. It's very conditioning and thick in a pleasant, not gross way. I use this at bedtime and wake up with moisturized and soft lips. This is $6 at The Body Shop, but I'm sure they'll be a sale soon and it will be $3 again.

Happy Sunday!
