5 Things I’m Loving Right Now

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these posts.  Consider that I just fell in love with a few of them, I thought it was time to share the love.

Huggable Hangers

I found these a while back.  I love how much thinner they are than my typical plastic hangers and how they don’t seem to leave those hanger bumps on the shoulders.  But more importantly, I love how things actually stay ON the hangers (now I can cut off all those damn plastic strings and not worry about it).

Shu Umera Eyelash Curler

I asked a make up artist friend what to do with my lashes since they just didn’t seem to hold their curl any more.  She suggested I get a new Shu Umera curler – something about the springs not lasting and therefore not curling as well.  Turns out the new curler is exactly what I needed.  Thanks Tara, you’re a genius!  If you haven’t yet invested in a curler (the Shu Umera is a cult classic) I recommend doing so.  The way your curled lashes open your eyes will amaze you.

Dermalogica Soothing Eye Make-Up Remover

I first learned about this product when we were at the Ladies Who Launch LIVE event at the Dermalogica headquarters back in May.  We didn’t get a sample, but everyone around me was raving about this product so I ran out and bought it.  This removes everything from your eyes and is so gentle, you can open your eyes even with the product all over them.  Seriously.  And it washes right away without any film left on your eyes like some of those other products leave behind.

DDF Fade Gel 4

I found out about this product when I read Nadine Haobsh’s book, Beauty Confidential.  She raved about it for reducing hyper-pigmentation spots.  Considering I had a relatively largish spot right on my cheek, near my eye (where my sunglasses rest – gee, I wonder how it got there?!?!) I thought I would give it a try. Granted, it’s not completely gone, but it reduced the pigmentation by at least half.  Made me quite happy and I’ve been raving about it to all my friends since.

Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Surface Scrub

This is the product that actually made me sit down and right up this list I was that excited.  As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve decided to go green in the house (I’m still working on the health & beauty products, but that seems a bit more challenging and another story all together).  Yesterday I tried the scrub on our tub and it worked great!  All the stains (damn that tinted shine stuff!) and sugar scrub residue is gone.  It really surprised me.  I also use their shower spray and the toilet bowl cleaner and like those as well.  But this, this one I’m loving since I can actually breathe while I scrub.

So what are you loving right now? What do you recommend we all run out and try?

    I love my Shu Umera Eyelash Curler!  It’s the best $16 I’ve ever spent on a makeup tool.

    Something I’ve been loving is my new Cover Girl Lash Blast Hydrofuge (waterproof) mascara.  Regular mascara doesn’t work for me, so I buy waterproof mascara to keep the shape from the eyelash curler.  I’ve gone through at least 10 tubes of mascara before I discovered this one.  The only other brand I trust is Maybelline Great Lash, a classic.

    Katelin – I just picked up a few more of those hangers today.  I really like them that much.

    Miss A – I’ve seen the hangers at Target, Linens and Things and today at Marshalls (not really any cheaper).  They’re so worth it.

    Speedy – I just replaced mine when I wrote this post…world of difference.  My make-up artist friend suggests to keep the curl to use a mascara primer and a silicone-based mascara (she recommended the high end stuff and I’m still looking for a drugstore version).  I will check out CG’s Lash Blast.  You really think the waterproof makes the difference?
