things I love

2018 Favorite Things List:

Moogoo Skincare— I really appreciate this Australian Company! Their Oncology Care Pack is wonderful and so is their Irritable Skin Balm. I also really enjoy their regular skin care products such as the Oil Cleanser for dry skin, the Full Cream, and their Anti-Aging Face Cream. I wish they packaged their products in glass, but I still really like them for their mission to use quality ingredients and to be totally transparent about what those ingredients are. I also love the price of these products. Most are under $20. Every order you place comes with samples, and every box I receive smells like sweet milk!

Ann Marie Gianni Skincare— I love this line so much! Their handcrafted skincare products are made with organic and wildcrafted ingredients that are free of chemicals, colors and fragrances. They also bottle most everything in glass. I really appreciate this as I and my family are trying our best to purge plastics from our home. I also think these products are well priced for the amazing quality of the ingredients. I would call them mid-range-most products falling between $30 and $75. A few items are a little over a hundred dollars, but most are not.

Dental Lace Refillable Dental Floss— I really love this this product! For quite a while I had been looking for a plastic-free dental floss. I tried different ones, but none worked so well as this one. The package comes with two spools of silk floss and an adorable glass holder that fits right in my makeup bag. The floss is waxed and has a mint flavor. Also, the little glass holders come in gray, blue and pink (I bought the pink). And, finally, refills are easy to slide right into the small jar. Love it!

Simple Ecology Reusable Organic Cotton Mesh Produce Bags— These bags are great! Easy to throw in the washing machine and, because they're mesh, easy for the checker should he/she need to count the items in the bag. I particularly like these because they don't have any plastic toggles. Just synch closed and they hold.

Penhaligon's—I love this British fragrance line! Their Orange Blossom invokes Passion, and their Gardenia brings memories of Patience to mind. For years I wore their Amaranthine. Sadly, it was discontinued and I recently used the very last of it that I had stockpiled. I'm thinking of trying their Peoneve as it was recommended for me when I did their fragrance profiling (I adore peonies!). They also have sample selections. This company is cruelty free.

Beauty Creations Long Wear Matte Lip Gloss— I found these glosses in a little basket at a local salon. I picked one up because I'm a fan of bold lips and matte lipstick really stays put. Anyway, I bought a bright pink called Pink Angel. I love the color and it is really long lasting! The tube is a good size and they are a great price at $5. Also, this line is cruelty free.
