I received a little bit of spending money for my birthday (which kind of makes me feel like a 13 year old), and I decided to spend some of it yesterday.
There a lots of cute spring dresses out right now, but since I didn’t get invited to the royal wedding, I decided to spend my dollars on beauty products.
Something about buying cosmetics and beauty products makes me so happy to be a girl. I just loving being a girl. Of course, I don’t know any different, but still… Being a girl is fun (for most of the month anyway).
Ulta sent me a coupon for 20% off my entire purchase, and this marketing technique was enough to lure me into the store. I like shopping there because they carry 100% Pure, Burt’s Bees, and Tarte Cosmetics (which are all natural brands in line with The Toss the Junk Project).
My stash includes:
- 100% Pure Vanilla Bean Nourishing Cream
- Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer in Rhubarb
- Burt’s Bees Peach and Willowbark Deep Pore Scrub
- Tarte Cosmetics Travel Kit (including cheek stain, lip polish, makeup brush, eyeliner, powder, and mascara)
- Aromafloria Sugar Salt Glow Body Scrub
All of these products have proven to be wonderful so far. The body cream feels so indulgent. It contains cocoa butter and avocado butter, so it’s no wonder that it is so silky. The facial scrub made me feel invigorated and the lip polishes are so smooth.
Maybe it is my imagination, but natural products make me feel better. My skin seems to be thanking me today for not lathering it up with chemicals and gunk.
Are you a fan of more natural cosmetics and beauty products? If so, which brands are your favorites?
I’m really excited to experiment with more brands and to play a little bit more with my new purchases (possibly while wearing a tiara and singing, “I Feel Pretty” to myself).
Have a great day!
