September Favorites & Fudgeroos!

Hi My Loves!!!

I finally found a tiny bit of time to snap some pictures of my favorites and fudgeroos for last month. Sorry the pictures aren't super snazzy like normal, I quickly took them with my phone instead of the big camera that takes forever to set up :)

I still haven't been wearing makeup ( I think I wore it once so far this month, maybe twice)..... so this is mainly toiletries rather than makeup but still beauty products that we all use, so I hope it helps :)


Lioele Jewel Mix Marble Skin Finish Link!
If you've been watching me for a while you'll know I have quite a few Lioele products that I love. This is something new to me, I got it in August. It's been my go to highlighter for the few times that I have had a chance to slap some makeup on :) It's very soft and subtle but still gives that really beautiful candlelit glow to wherever you apply it. It does have a strong scent of rose or something like that, so beware if you are sensitive to the smells.... I happen to love the way it smells. This comes with a little brush too (I don'tuse the brush though) 

Without Flash

Be A Bombshell Cosmetics Blush in Sweet Cheeks Link!
This is a new item from Be A Bombshell Cosmetics. I've got 3 of their other blushes as well which I love. This is a really soft pink with a tiny weeny bit of shimmer. It's that perfect light pink color that is really beautiful for light to medium skin tones. This has also been the only blush I've been wearing lately. I actually wore this the day I went into labor :) 

Sibu Beauty Sea Buckthorn Exfoliating Scrub Link!
I purchased this a while back when it was on Hautelook. I'd actually never tried Sibu Beauty before but I remeber watching Lisa Eldridge a long time ago and she had shown some products from them, so when I saw it on sale I thought I would pick some up as I had just run out of my normal scrub. I've used it now for just over 2 months. It hasn't broken me out, it gets rid of all the dead skin and I really like it. It's a bit more gritty and more abrasive than the normal Mary Kay Microdermabrasion scrub I use so it does leave y skin a bit red right after using it but it leaves your skin look really clean and almost gives it a nice shine (like no more dead nasty skin shine)..... 

Victorias Secret Sweet Daydream Apple & Raspberry Daily Body Wash 
I got this on clearance a little while back and it was so cheap... I think maybe like $2 or something ( I can't remember exactly).... it's smells like apples, lathers nicely and leaves you feeling clean, not dry and smelling delightful :)


Cadbury Mini Fingers Toffee Crunch
I found this delightful little yummies at Walfart in the cookie section. These are soooooo yummy. Occasionally I need a little bit of chocolate in my life and these are perfect for those moments. Milk chocolate with a toffee flavored cookie inside = heaven in my mouth!!!!

Bolthouse Farms Strawberry Banana Smoothie
We get ours at Sam's Club in a pack of 2 for around $5. They are a good size too so I usually can get about 4 glasses out of each bottle. They are super yummy and so convenient when you are a busy mommy like me and sometimes don't have the time to make yourself a delightful snack or meal.... you can just pour yourself a glass and bam... you got yourself some fruit in no time at all :) I always keep our fridge stocked up with these, plus kids love them too!

Now onto the products that I didn't care for.....


Colgate Optic White Enamel White Toothpaste
I got mine at Target on Clearance. Normally I think it's a bit too pricey for my liking so when I saw it for less than $2 I thought I would see what all the hype was about. DON'T BOTHER!!!! This stuff sucks. It doesn't whiten your teeth at all, I actually felt like it make my teeth yellower. It doesn't leave your breath smelling delicious and it's just not worth the money to me. We did use it all so that I didn't feel like a waster but I would never purchase this again, clearance or not.

Garnier Fructis Pure Clean Fortifying Conditioner
This was on the end display at Walmart a few weeks ago when we were shopping. I had just run out of conditioner and I knew we didn't have the time to go to the beauty supply after grocery shopping so I thought I would pick it up as it was only $2.98. Poo..... it didn't really tickle my fancy but what do you expect for that price. The smell is delightful but it doesn't really detangle very well and it left my hair feeling a tad dry and depressed :( Oh well, good thing it was cheap.

There you have it my little lovelies. Sorry this isn't a video but I figured a blog post would be better than nothing at all, to share my faves and fudgeroos of the month. 

Hope this helps you make a decision on any of these products, if you've been eyeing them.

Have a great weekend!!! Happy Friday!

Any products you are loving that you recommend I pick up?
