I Picked up a few things at Walmart and Lush the other day. I mainly just needed the face scrub. I usually purchase the equate brand of the apricot scrub, but since the St. Ives brand was only a few cents more since it was on sale, I got this brand instead. It's pretty comparable to the Equate brand except I find the little scrubers in the St. Ives brand to be a little more gentle.
I also got the Olay Pro X face brush. I have to admit, I wasn't expecting a lot from this brush. It doesn't feel heavy duty or strong enough, but It does help to remove makeup better. I washed my face with my usual cleanser, rinsed and then went over my face again with the brush and a little more soap. I was pretty impressed with how much more makeup came off on the brush.
At Macy's I stopped by Lush to get my all time favorite product. The Buffy Body Butter. You can check out my review of it here if you would like.I Really didn't need another self tanner, but I've heard a ton of good things about the Banana Boat Summer Color self tanner. I've only used it once so far but I really like it. It's creamy and easy to blend in and since it's really dark it's easy to see where you're applying it. I also heard that this fades gradually instead of coming off patchy (I'm looking at you L'Oreal sublime).
Before and after. 1 application.
Since I like my tan to be dark I will probably do 2 to 3 back to back applications next time.
Have any of you tried these products? What's your favorite self tanner?
P.S I thought I would share with you guys that I'm having a myomectomy on the 20th. (Here's a link if you want to see what it's about). Recovery time is 4-6 weeks so I probably won't be posting much, if at all till I get better. If I do post it will probably be surgery updates and pictures if it doesn't look too gross lol.
