April's Love It or Leave It.

Hi Everyone!  It's that time again!  Am I lovin' it or leaving' it?

I'm absolutely LOVING IT!!!  I have three items that I couldn't do without this month.

Sephora's Precision Pore Cleansing Pad.  It's this pink little skin cleaning delight!  Now, i've owned the Clarisonic and it did nothing but damage to my skin.  Yes, I had the sensitive brush.  Let's just say that I'm VERY thankful for Sephora's awesome return policy.  But this little guy was so pink and so cheap, that I didn't mind if things didn't work out between us. Oh LA!  Things have been going strong for a month, now and I can really see a great future for us.  LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!  I think that my husband might love it too because I think that he's been using it (his skin has been looking awfully nice lately!).  All that I can say is that it's really helped clear up my skin and just overall, it seems less dull and feels smoother!

The Body Shop's Lychee Blossom Eau de Toilette.  I picked this one up because it smelled okay in the store and I needed an item to bring my total up to $40 so I could receive $15 off my purchase.  I remember when The Body Shop's "White Musk" was all the rage in my poor University days.  So I was pleasantly surprised that I really liked this perfume.  I think that it's a special edition or a seasonal fragrance, but don't quote me on that.  It has the right mix sweet fruity scents and a light floral scent.  








Third and last item is.....Bed Head's "After Party".  This is a smoothing cream for silky, shiny, healthy looking hair.  It's AAAAWWWWEEEESSSOOOMMMMEEEEE!!!!  I've tried sooooo many smoothing drops/creams/hair crack that I don't even care to mention.  This by far is definitely THE one.  I have long slightly wavy hair.  Yes, being asian, I'm expected to have stick straight hair, but unfortunately, my hair has a slight curl to it.  This stuff totally smooths my hair it out.  I straightens it like nobody's business (and it's really light!)! It also smells fantastic to boot!


For such a picky person, these products definitely came out to impress!  I'm just sad that the Lychee Blossom is a special limited edition perfume because I wouldn't mind having an extra one on hand for the in between perfume times.

    1. There's this little nubby thing in the back that you put between your index and middle finger (or at least that's how I grab it). You add your cleansing product straight on to it and gently, in a circular motion, rub it against your skin. Depending on whether or not you want a deeper clean, you either use the larger area or for a lighter, gentle clean, use the smaller area. I use all areas! LOL! It's really bendy so you can really get into those no man's land crevices! I think that it's a fantastic $7 investment. Oh, and because I'm crazy, I add product to my face AND the cleansing pad. Hope that this helps! :)

  12. I have wavy hair too..and not a nice wavey. Bed head wavy. I can't ever just let my hair air dry..it looks like I was struck by lightning. SO sad. I plan on going out to purchase this product, who knows if it will work for me, but it's worth a shot..I too have gone through tons and tons of products to smooth my wavy frizzy hair! I want to try that pad so badly too! :D
