I had a little cash to spend so I finally got the scent I have been wanting for sooooo long!! Philosophy's Pure Grace. Love this scent!! So clean and fresh and almost like a clean soap scent. It reminds me of how I think everyone should smell right after getting out of the shower. It is light and just so fresh. It lasts too. I never need to reapply.
I also bought the L'Oreal Paris: Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. cream. It is so nice! It is comes in a couple different shades. I got the medium. When you first open it and put a dab on your finger it is a white cream. I was a little surprised because I didn't get the light shade. I looked closer and the cream has a bunch of teeny brown pigment dots in it. when you apply it to your face the pigment dots break open and add the color to your skin. It is so very subtle but it literally is magic on your skin! I have a lot of sun damage and I am currently using the Murad products to try to correct this as much as possible (will post about that soon). When I applied the B.B. cream it just made my skin look so much more even in tone. It made shine go away and it just made my skin look beautiful without any other make-up on. I could have just added some mascara and walked out the door. I love this cream! It is very light and you don't even notice it is there. It also hydrates. The front of the tube says that it hydrates, corrects, primes and perfects. I think that this is all very accurate. I will definitely be purchasing this again!! I paid about $10 for the tube. Amazing stuff and I highly recommend you get it!!
The last thing I got was It's A 10 Miracle Leave-in Plus Keratin conditioner. I was searching for a leave-in and this is what one of the Ulta employees recommended. I am so glad he did!! I love this! I live in the south where it is humid and wet. I have gotten frizz since we moved here. I am also finding that since coloring my hair more often, I am getting hair that feels drier and getting more brittle. I have long and fine hair. I do love my hair but I need to take special care of it to keep it looking nice. This conditioner works great! it is thicker than most leave-in's I have used. but, my hair does not look or feel greasy after using this. It just feels soft and free of frizz. Here is what it says the product does on the back of the bottle.

I do have silkier hair and it is so much easier to comb through it now while wet! You don’t even know how happy that makes me. My hair now looks so young and healthy again!
