I think I will be starting a weekly friday favorites and flops post about what I am currently loving from cosmetics to baby items and anywhere in between.
Purity face wash by Philosophy; Clarisonic- I have been using Purity by Philosophy face wash with my Clarisonic and I really like it. It has softened my skin and brightened it. I use it in the shower because with a baby, time is of the essence.
Herbal Essences Shampoo and Conditioner – I am LOVING the rose scented shampoo and conditioner. It leaves my hair feeling soft and clean with an amazing scent.
Ocean Salt Face and Body Scrub by LUSH– Absolutely love this. It makes me feel like I’m at the beach and instantly relaxes and revitalizes me. Leaves my skin feeling super soft. I use it a few times a week.
Clinique Chubby Stick in #16 Voluptuous Violet– It gives my lips a light wash of color and keeps them moisturized. My go to lip product lately. Easy and fast.
Honest Sunscreen Lotion by The Honest Company– This has been amazing. It is safe for the whole family including my 6 month old baby. I tested it out on his foot two days before using it with no issues. I then put it on his face, arms, and chest when we went to the pool and it was great. No reactions, no sunburn, nothing. I did make sure to have him use a hat and avoided too much direct sunlight just to be safe. It says it is water resistant for 80 minutes, hypoallergenic, non-nano zinc oxide, SPF 30, Plant and Mineral based, and FREE OF: PABA, petrochemicals, silicones, parabens, phthalates, fragrances, gluten, dyes and synthetic chemical sunscreens. No Animal Testing
Alcohol-Free Foaming Hand Sanitizer by Babyganics– This has been a life saver, especially at family gatherings. I make everyone use it before they hold my baby. Yep I am that parent. I am okay with that. I love that it is safe for everyone even my baby. This way they can use it and hold him without me worrying. I also put it on his hands sometimes if he has touched something questionable. It says it is pediatrician and dermatologist tested. Fragrance free, non-allergenic, no triclosan, no parabens, no sulfates, no phthalates, and no artificial fragrances or dyes. Never tested on Animals
Pacifier Wipes by Munchkin– I love these for on the go. With a 6 month old, I spend A LOT of time picking up pacifiers that he had thrown EVERYWHERE. If I’m not able to wash them, I use this to clean them so that he does not scream bloody murder because he can’t have his pacifier back. If he has dropped the pacifier somewhere that I think is really dirty I don’t let him use it just to be safe. It says that it is alcohol free, no harsh chemicals, and natural cleaning with baking soda.
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab– I am currently enjoying this book although it has taken me a long time to finish it with only being able to read a few pages a day. Mom life at its finest. It is a mix of science fiction and fantasy.
