November Favorites and Finished Products, and Giveaway

Wow! It's that time of the month, "Favorites and Finished Products." Time sure flies.

November Favorites
b.liv Mask in Sheer Off Crease: This is the third box from b.liv I've used, and I still have one more box to use. Out of the three I've used, I have to say this is my favorite so far. This box is suppose to help with collagen production and reduce wrinkle. I'm sure it's a combination of skin care products and this mask, but I did notice less wrinkle around my eyes and forehead the last several weeks.

Scented Body Butter in Coconut Lime Verbana: The first time I applied this body butter I was not optimistic. It's very light. It did not feel like a cream/butter. It felt more like a lotion which isn't thick enough for this winter weather for my dry skin. Let me tell you I was so wrong about this product! I'm amazed for a light consistency product is better than a lot of thicker products out there. It kept me moist a lot longer than most products I have tried.

Aveeno Positively Ageless Lifting & Firming Eye Cream: This eye cream is on the thicker consistency and it works well for aging skin like myself. It applies smoothly, as well as, melts into your skin. I also like that it comes in a tube rather than a container. It's sanitary safe and it works well!

Revlon PhotoReady Primer + Shadow Palette in Metropolitan: I already reviewed this product. What can I say about this palette other than I love it! If you're not into glitter/shiny eyeshadows, I highly do not recommend this product. It lasts all day and it reminds me of Japanese palettes.

Holika Holika Love Fantasy Blush in Pink: I also reviewed this product. Not only is the packaging cute, it applies smoothly and last all day long. What more can you ask from a blush!


November Finished Product
The Body Shop Body Butter in Jolly Orange: I received this from a friend. She's always giving me The Body Shop Body Butters because she knows I love them. It's very sweet of her! :) In all honesty, it does not smell like orange. If you're looking for orange scent, this isn't it. Even though, it doesn't smell like orange, it smells fruity and nice. The reason why I love body butters from The Body Shop is because it melts like butter, and it's hydrating.

Would repurchase: Yes!

Hi Alyssa I would suggest adding more color to the blogs. I am a fan of colors because they capture the eye, but that's just me. :) I think it would be nice to add color to the titles or headings on your blog. That's all that I can think of. And thank you very much for this giveaway. :)
