Best in show: My favourite products from 2015


Happy New Year!

No doubt everyone says this every year, but where did this past year go? It’s truly crazy how time flies by so fast.

Although I’m not that big on making new year’s resolutions, I did manage to accomplish my 2015 one; read a book a month. For 2016, I have two: be more positive (what you put out in the world reflects what you get back) and lose 10 pounds by May. I’m usually not big on the whole weight loss resolution thing, but I’ve been eating way too much these past few months and I can definitely see it on my body.

Anyways, since a new year means new beauty products, a 2015 recap of my favourite products is in order.  Although I don’t have a favourite for every category, I will mention products that are still favourites.

I didn’t mention skincare since I’ve been using a whole whack of things and for the most part, nothing has broken me out.  For the past few months I’ve been using The Body Shop Oils of Life and have really enjoyed it (although I don’t recommend the oil for daytime use if you wear makeup, it makes everything run). Other favourites from past years include the Clinique Three-Step System and First Aid Beauty.

I hope you had a wonderful 2015 (I did!) and also a fabulous upcoming 2016!
