March Favorites (with a few from Dec-Feb)

I did a lot of shopping during the month of February and March and have come to really LOVE many of my recent purchases as well as a few long term ones.  Lets get started.


GlamGlow Duo Holiday Gift Set


I purchased this duo set after Christmas.  The black container (small) helps to exfoliate and the white container (large) is for acne and skin problems.  I must say I really like the white container.  It helps "diminish" and minimize unwanting acne.  Both products dries very quickly and smells Ok (no funky smell).  You leave this on for 5-15 minutes and then remove it with water.  You can use the white container overnight.  This retails at $69 and can be purchased at Sephora - GlamGlow.

Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge

I also purchased this after Christmas to help remove the GlamGlo mask.  I love this sponge, but not the price ranging at $18.00.  This is super easy to use.  All you have to do is run it under water until it turns soft then sweep it gently on your face to remove the mask.  It feels so nice on the skin.  Once you're done, hang the sponge in your bathroom using the string attached so it can dry.  This can be purchased at Sephora - Boscia
*EcoTool recently launched a new sponge similar to the Boscia's sponge for only $5.99. Ecotools.  I just picked it up the other day at Ulta.  If you have it, please let me know how do you like it.

Boscia Cleansing Oil Gel

I love using my Mario Badescu's Acne Facial Cleanser, but my youngest son decided to fill it up with water and completely ruined it (and it was a new bottle).  Since I was so happy with my Boscia's sponge I wanted to try a cleanser.  This is weird because it's a pink and thick "Oil-Gel" texture, but it really does a good job.  It has a pump, which is always great and it helps remove makeup and impurities leaving the skin very soft.  It retails at $28.00 and I purchased it at Sephora.  Boscia Cleansing Oil Gel

Clarisonic Replacement Brush Head
This retails at Sephora & Ulta $27 for an Individual and $44.00 for a duo.  However, Groupon was having a great deal for a duo replacement head for only $11.99 each.  I purchased a duo Deep Pore and a Duo Acne under $30.00.  Now that's a STEAL!!! Groupon

Soap & Glory 'Flake Away'

OMG, I LOVE this scrub!!!!!!   It smells so good and leaves the skin so soft.  I bought this back in December as a x-mas gift for my friend and she spoke so highly about this product.  When I was recently shopping for LUSH'S Sea Salt body scrub, I first stopped at Sephora and it was a wrap.  Flake away has almost the same ingredients as Lush's Sea Salt Body Scrub except it's a few dollars cheaper and this has shea butter, sweet almond oil, peach seed powder, sea salt and sugar for a formula that eliminates dry skin.  I LOVE how the smell remains on your skin throughout the whole day even if you apply body lotion over your skin.  I highly recommend this product!  It costs $25.  Soap & Glory


Marilyn Hair Moisturizer

BIG Shampoo
I have really dry scalp and I was reading into these 2 products from LUSH that would help.  I love it!!!  BIG has sea salt, which works great to exfoliate the scalp and Marilyn is a moisturizer that leaves the hair shiny, frizz free and helps lighten Blonde hair.  Both products smell GREAT!  I like the fact that neither product leaves a residue or feels slippery on your tub.  I have straighten my hair after using both products and without adding any hair products to my hair it would look healthy, shiny and beautiful.  Marilyn retails at $22.95 and BIG at $26.95.  Lush
