Happy (almost) October everyone!
These early Autumn days are so magical! I am already in love with the crisp air, pumpkin spice lattes and hot coco 🙂 I just can’t wait to see the leaves changing colors now.
Having said that, here I am, back with another Monthly Favorites post. The things I’m mentioning in this post aren’t entirely beauty related. These are rather the random things that I’ve loved using the entire month!
Let’s begin! Please keep scrolling for more.
1. Pond’s Cold Cream Cleanser
The very first thing that I’ve been loving this month is the Pond’s Cold Cream Cleanser. Since the weather has changed and skin has started acting weird already, I felt its time to move on from liquid makeup remover solutions to cream based products.
It is a moisturizing deep cleanser & makeup remover. I used this cream cleanser last year in winters for the first time and now it has become an essential part of my autumn/winter skincare regimen.
2. Vaseline Intensive Care Healthy Hands Stronger Nails Lotion
Honestly, I don’t use hand creams in summers other than sunscreen. But in cold drier days, this is the only hand cream I’m using from last 2 years. I really love this product. For better results, I use this cream at least 4 to 5 times a day for keeping my hands softer and smoother.
3. Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser
I tell you, I have a ‘Thing’ for charcoal based skincare products :D. And for this one, since it is an oil free formula, so it was the best cleanser for my combination skin in those humid days. It would be one of my top 5 summer cleansers and I definitely see myself continuing this one, next summers too!
4. L’Oreal Paris The Super Slim Eyeliner by Infallible
I have been using this eye liner most of the days for about a month now and have to say I’m very impressed with the results. It took a little practice at first to get the line nice and straight, but I soon got the hang of it. It goes on really smoothly and leaves a really dark, definite line. But I’ll not suggest to use this product in summertime, because It is not waterproof and smudge proof!
5. Choker (Black)
Yess… I know I am a little late to ‘Chokers’ party but in my defense, I wasn’t very comfortable wearing them initially. But once I started, I coudn’t get enough 😀 This one piece I got from Forevere21 way back in summers, I loved styling it different ways most of this month!
6. My fitness pal App
Okay… so last Favorite from this post (as you can see) is an App. I’m sure you already knew about MyFitnessPal App. So did I. But what I didn’t know until a month ago, was that It could track my footsteps for entire day, automatically!
It is usually recommended to take at least 10,000 footsteps a day, for a healthy routine. And if you’re someone (like me), who finds it difficult to stay motivated and on track, then I must tell, if you haven’t tried this tracker already (and you don’t own a Fitbit), do give it a try. Just make sure to take 10,000 steps everyday, which will help keeping you on track, even if you’re missing gym or workout routine. I’m so excited to discover this. All you have to do is to hold your phone the entire time you are walking from one place to another… but… aren’t we doing that already? pff 😀
This is all I have for today’s post. I’d really love to know your thoughts on these favorites of mine.
Also, I want to mention that the festival of ‘Navratri’ is beginning from tomorrow. And I’m sending my warm wishes to all of you who celebrate this festival, and hope ‘Maa Durga’ brings all the happiness and brightness in your life!
One more thing I’d like to share that my blog has been nominated for Versatile Blogger Award! I’m really excited about it (although I don’t know much about it 😦 ) but I’m going to post everything regarding this in my next post which is going live tomorrow (off the schedule). Don’t forget to stop by. I would need your support 🙂
With all this, I hope you all had a very good September and I wish y’all an amazing October !!
See you soon in next post 🙂
