Benefit The Overnighter Gift Set for Late Nights

Benefit The Overnighter Gift Set ($38.00) is the classic Justine Case, plus their “hanky panky thong.” The Overnight Set includes California Kissin’, Eyecon, Benetint, and Some Kind-a Gorgeous. All of these products are designed to help make you look flawless even when you’re not feeling your best. Benetint is a classic lip tint, but it’s also great on cheeks, too. Eyecon helps to reduce the appearance of dark undereye circles–perfect for that late night out. California Kissin’ is a “smile brightening lip shine.” Some Kind-a Gorgeous is a foundation “faker”; it’s a translucent powder that helps to brighten your complexion. All in all, it’s a cute set, but you can grab the Justine Case set for $32 and save $6. It seems like you’re just paying for the thong. Of course, if you need a lacy pair of panties, then maybe the set is up your alley 😉 ** Edited:  Looks like a few of you have purchased the panties alone for $18, so then this is a deal if you like thongs!

Lush Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser is Perfect for the Morning!

LUSH Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser ($9.95 for 3.5 oz.) has been my go-to morning cleanser lately, because it’s a mild exfoliating cleanser that’s perfect for both sensitive skin and everyday use. If you’re new to Lush, this might be a little more adventurous product type than other products they offer, just because it feels very natural/organic.

By Terry Bronze-Expert: Brush On the Radiance!

By Terry Bronze-Expert ($48.00) is a creamy, gel-based bronzer that clicks up and onto a brush. It comes in three shades Sun Beach (light), Sun Desert (medium), and Sun Tropic (dark). All three are on the sheerer side, so if you’re not sure about your color, don’t worry so much. Even the darkest shade is sheer enough to work on medium skin tones. What I particularly liked about this formula is how buildable the color is, which is what a bronzer should be. It is often too easy to go overboard with bronzer, which results in a fake-looking color that can be too orange or too dirty. The formula is very much like a gel, which gives it a great weightless feeling when applied and smoothed over skin. Traditionally, you’d use this on the face, but it can also be used to bronze cleavage and decolletage, too.

Origins Modern Friction: Fab Skin Results, But…

The product leaves me a little torn, because sometimes I find it seems too acidic that my eyes tear/sting a little just from the scent (because I definitely don’t use this near my eyes–at least not deliberately!). I think I must be particularly sensitive to an ingredient in there that causes that problem, so it probably isn’t something the average person would experience. Also, I do find it can be too harsh/abrasive when used dry (I find myself having to use water to soften it a bit). Origins says it is “nature’s gentle dermabrasion,” but it doesn’t feel that gentle to me. I love to exfoliate–and I have a whole slew (err, bin) of exfoliants and scrubs for face and body–so I’m no stranger to the feeling!
