February Face & Body Purchases

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.

I've been curious about that Olay Pro X face brush since it hit shelves a long time ago LOL glad it works well for you!

I don't know if it's just me but I used this St.Ives scrub only once and it was soooooo harsh and left my face super irritated and swollen... I thought I might have had an allergy but it's not the first product I have used with apricot in it... weird!
