It’s the November Edition of the Beauty and Fashion Blog Community and this month’s is Five Products that I am Thankful For which can range from beauty, fashion, and/or lifestyle products and things. I decided to choose a few beauty products and a couple techie products that I am thankful for having in my life.
Starting with beauty first, I’m thankful and glad I had the opportunity to try Sano Vitamin C Eye Cream Gel. I’ve been using this product ever since I received it to review. It really feels amazing when I apply this during the morning and evening after my daily cleansing ritual. It has a cooling and skin tightening affect, which helps lessen the appearance of under eye baggage. I’ll use this underneath my eye cream moisturizer.
I’ve also discovered Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Rich Cream | 48HR Lasting Hydration. I’ve been cutting back on cosmetics and skincare, so I was actually looking for a lesser priced replacement to Lancôme High Resolution Refill-3X and came across Vichy. I’m not saying this is the same thing, but I really love this product. It’s creamy, light, and I can use this during the day and evening – it keeps my skin hydrated throughout the day and it has a great price of $31 for 50 ml compared to $84 High Resolution at 1.7 oz. = 50.275 ml. Now if only I can find the Lancôme Progrès Eye Crème replacement…
The next product I’m thankful for is Lasem’s Fibre Lashxtend. I am so in love with this mascara! 1) It really extends my lashes without making it clumpy, 2) it holds up really well throughout the day, 3) does not smudge – by this I mean it doesn’t give you dark circles on your lower eyelids, which can happen when using oil based mascara or if your skin tends to be oily around the eye area. This mascara is considered a little pricey at $20, but it is so worth it. At least for me!
Now on to the tech products. I love my Kindle Paperwhite, 6″ High-Resolution Display. I purchased this on Amazon’s payment plan and purchased the one without “special offers”. This reader is so lightweight and has kept me company every day I use it on the train to work. It’s much more convenient than carrying a book. Plus, I’ve been trying to get back to my minimalistic lifestyle I once had when I was younger. I seemed to have gotten away from that ever since I had a kid, so this is one way for me to de-clutter and collect books electronically. Side note: Although, I’m not sure how well I’ll do reliving a minimalism lifestyle, considering that I write about beauty products! We will see!

Last, but not least, my 2009 MacBook. This thing is considered ancient! Beyond ancient. At one point, I thought I was going to toss it out the window. This unibody style came with only 100GB and 2GB RAM. Talk about a slow coach. I then upgraded the RAM to 6GB, which runs a lot better, so it makes me hesitant to trade it in – even though I still want to! It still works fabulously, minus that it only has 1.50GB harddrive space left but that’s what external harddrives are for, right? I am so thankful for my MacBook that has been with me for 5 years.
