My Beauty Faves

Just felt like sharing some of my fave beauty products that I j'adore at this moment

Bath and Body Works is the way to go. They have the most amazing stuff ever, a for a reasonable price. I like them a whole lot better than Victoria's Secret, even though the are part of the same Limited Brands Co. (I used to work there so I know and I used to get a discount there, that's the only part I miss about the job). Some of my faves :
I love the scent of Black Raspberry Vanilla and Sweat Pea. I don't really like fruity scents but this has just the right amount fruityness and sweetness. I more towards sweet smells. Now their signature collection body creams are just $5 each, great deal!!

Body Wash

I just started using this stuff and I'm in love. Ive been using dial as long as I remember, mainly the bar soap because it's antibacterial. The only thing about antibacterial soaps, they sucked the moisture right outta my skin. But regualr beauty bars sometimes would irritate my skin. Now Ive found something that is the best of both, it contains both antibacterial and moisturizing ingredients. I swear my skin has never felt cleaner or smoother and Ive tried alot of other stuff as well. And the smell is lovely. For some reason I have thing with jasmine. Since my name is yasmin(arabic for jasmine flower) I have an addiction to jasmine, weird connection right?

I don't but perfume on a regular basis but a few that I sooo want right now (hint, hint to the hubby) I've been wanting this ever since I smelled it in a magazine last year and for some reason I still haven't got it. But it's definitely on my want list. It's a very fun and playful fragrance. Here are a few of the notes: water lily, lady apple, mandarin meringue, and golden apricot skin are melded with sheer floral notes, accented with dark chocolate, pink frosting accord, amber, warm woods, musk, and vanilla-sounds good enough to eat.


My fave for a long time, Miss Dior Cherie by Dior, of course. I love the very feminine and romatic smell it has. Top notes are wild strawberry leaves and green tangerine. The heart features caramel popcorns surrounded by violets, wild strawberry, and pink jasmine( gotta love that jasmine). The base is created of fresh patchouli leaves and crystalline musk. Don't you just love the bottle. I have a thing for pretty bottles. This is the original one. They have just recently put ot Miss Dior Cherie Eau de Printemps. I don't like it that much, has a bit more of an orangey smell which I don't like. This is more of a fall/winter fragrance but hey in the house, it can be any season you want.

You can buy these frangrances at Sephora, Dillard's, or Macy's.

I just recently decided to change my face scrub and this stuff is like magic in a bottle. My skin is so much clearer and smoother, and less oily thanks to this stuff. I guess those Neutrogena commercials don't lie, because Im surely a believer.
