2018 Favorite Things

Well, ladies, this is the last Friday of 2018! I’m always telling my daughter, “the days are long but the years are short” and isn’t that true? I feel like I blink and another year has gone by.

Today I’m sharing some of my 2018 Favorite Things. These are products that I use over and over again.

2018 Favorite Things

1. Urban Decay Subversion Lash Primer | I like using a lash primer. It thickens and lengthens your lashes. I have tried several, but I always go back to this one.

2. Sara Happ Lip Scrub & Lip Slip | I was given this product to try from QVC, and it has become one of my favorite lip scrubs and lip balms. I love to put the lip balm on at night before I go to bed.

3. Tinkle Razors | If you haven’t jumped on the dermaplaning bandwagon, you might want to give it a try with these razors. I use these on a dry clean face (preferably at night). It exfoliates and takes off peach fuzz.

4. Colleen Rothschild Retinol Eye Serum | This is my favorite eye serum, and I use it morning and night. It helps to keep my undereye area soft {20% off with code BYE2018}.

5. Olaplex Hair Perfector No 3 Repairing Treatment | I recently mentioned I had some hair breakage. I think I was using too much heat on my hair. I started using Olaplex, and it has helped!

6. Radiant Cleansing Balm | I’ve shared this before, but it’s my favorite product to remove my makeup. I use it on my eyes too {20% off with code BYE2018}.

7. Aquage Uplifting Foam | Always on my favorite things list. This is a weightless volume-building styling product. Pinpoint delivery system concentrates the spray pattern at the root area for maximum volume.

8. Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge | If you love a beauty blender but don’t want to pay the high price, these are a great alternative at a much lower price.

9. Coconut Water Based Long Lasting Self Tanner Foam | I have found a new tanning product that I really like. I got a sample earlier in the year, and I’ve ordered the full size. I use a glove to apply it, and it goes on great.

10. TARTE Shape Tape Concealer | I have mentioned this product, but it’s my favorite eye concealer. I can put it on in the morning, and I don’t have to reapply it. My second favorite eye concealer is Nars Creamy Concealer.

It’s fun to look back at 2018 and see all the products I used over and over again. Tell us one of your favorite products!

Thank you for taking time out of your day to stop by my blog. I’m also on FacebookPinterest, and, Instagram.

  1. Is there a place I can get the recipe for the Chex Mix with M and M’s and such…and then I’m done with sugar!!!

  2. A while back I tried the soup recipe but tweaked it to suit my tastes, adding fresh sage and rosemary, lots of pepper, and some chili flakes. It was really good, and I’ve made it a few times since.

  3. I also discovered Olaplex this year and love it. FYI, if you are a Costco member, Costco.com has a much better pricing. $34.99 for a package of two 3.3 oz.

  4. I love the soup recipe and have made it often. I must be very late to the party also because I have never heard of celery juice. Curious how you actually do this – like how many days? Just in the morning? and what kind of juicer do you use. I would like to not have to buy one more kitchen appliance and use my vitamix if this is a juice that works. It’s been a long time since I read a comment by Charles Stanley…and this is another good one.

  5. Hi there! Longtime follower- and I’m very curious about FASTer Way. If I have a gym membership will it fit in with the program? Also, how easy do you find it to follow meals when there are other family members who might not be doing the program?😉
    How time intensive is it (food prep, fb posts, workouts)? What is the firs week? I’m sorry if this is asking way too much, but I’m truly intrigued!

  6. One of my favorite go-to products on a nightly basis is Mary Kay Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover. I’ve tried other eye makeup removers but have found none better than Mary Kay. I’m religious to it! It completely removes my mascara and shadow without pulling on my lashes or the skin around my eye area. It’s so gentle yet removes all my eye makeup easily.
    I’m super curious about the Tinkle Razors and read from another Blogger that loves them too. Please, please tell me, will they make your facial peach fuzz grow back as whiskers and it ends up being something you have to keep up with indefinitely? That would be a nightmare for me.
    I pray God leads you into this wonderful Gibson opportunity you’re considering. I just read this in a devotional this morning and I love it:
    “I have learned that faith means trusting in advance what will only make sense in reverse.” ~ Philip Yancey

  7. I use aquaphor on my lips, it works really well. Bombas socks, specifically the women’s ankle performance, are the best!

  8. Thx Cyndi. Have you heard of Sengence? They sell a lot of cosmetic products.. their lipsense stays on all day!! Yes, ALL DAY! I really like them. Have also started using their CCTM, (light foundation) their blush and I’m moving into to their mascara. Their products last a long time too. Have a blessed day 😊

  9. Thanks for sharing! In my area, people make a very similar soup; serve it over some brown rice and call it Cabbage Roll Bowls. Yummy!

  10. Hi Cyndi. I see under the things you list that you are currently loving there is a picture of a Nuface device. Do you use that and have you done a post on it? If so, I must have missed it and would love to know how to find it. I have done research on the Nuface device and I’m still on the fence. I would love to know your experience using it.
    Thanks and sending wishes to you for a blessed 2019.
