Easter Pastels

These are probably the only spring colored items I’m using lately. Anything more feels too soon with the chilly weather.

This blue MERCURYDUO tote is the free item with the latest issue of Sweet. It’s one of the recent freebies I’ve actually liked. Their “Take me to MERCURYDUO” reminded me of Kastane’sTake me to ___” slogan from last year. And their text and choice of pastel color reminded me a bit of the Maison de Reefur shopper.

I’ve been using the Maison de Reefur tote lately on warmer days. The soft cotton fabric is so easy to sling around when running errands. :)






Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration

Thursday March 28, 2013 comments   

This winter I tried out Burt’s Bees new Intense Hydration line and I actually just finished the jar of night cream. I’m almost done with a tube of eye cream and I also used half of the intensive mask all from the same line. :)

I liked this line.

It worked great for my extra dry winter skin without causing breakouts. I used the night cream and eye cream daily and the mask every other week.

The treatment mask is more intense and I did find if I used it multiple times a week it was too thick and I’d get a tiny zit from it. So using it more sparingly prevented that. It’s really incredible for skin that is extra wind burned or so dry that it’s already flaking.

The night cream is really light for being so effective. It doesn’t feel particularly moisturizing right away but it is soothing and cooling and does the trick. Since finishing the jar I started trying something new and my skin is already getting drier. Though I don’t think I would need this cream during the summer I might have to pick up some more just to get through spring.

Lastly I love the scent. The clary sage reminds me of the beach and all these items smell exactly the same.

So yeah… I am super happy with this line especially as a winter hydration fix!
