Faves In Five | February 2016

I watch a lot of monthly favourites videos on YouTube because it's usually - gotta say usually since some folks are paid to mention/show things in those videos - a good way to discover products that actually work. I hope these posts will do the same thing for you.

Wayne Goss Brush 19

The softest brush that has ever graced my eyelid as I mentioned here.

I got one of these for The Wife recently and she gave it high marks so I had to go back to Pure Source and get one for myself.

Benjabelle Sunflower Brush Tree and Brush Tree Spinner

This is something I wish I had made. Makeup brush drying made a whole lot easier.

Perfume samples

I really appreciate the ability to try new scents without the full on purchasing commitment. Especially since social media might hype up a scent that's totally not for you. The best of this lot was the one from Tory Burch.

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

Summer Standouts

It feels strange to talk about beauty products with all that's going on in the Caribbean. Our neighbours are going through some seriously trying times and I implore you to give whatever you can. 🙏

I didn't even realise that this was a running theme. Last year's was especially good since it featured some of my favourite combinations. Like last year, makeup seems to have taken a backseat this Summer.
