It has been a whirlwind of a month for us, and I am sad to see the first month of 2017 already go. The highlight of our month was definitely Madeleine turning 5! I still can’t believe it. Although it has been busy, I still managed to find a few monthly favorites to share.
Sigma Brush Cleaner Mat: One task that I don’t like doing and usually put off as long as possible is cleaning my makeup brushes. This little mat helps make the job easier and faster! You secure it to the bottom of your sink using the suction cups on the back and then swirl your brushes over the textured areas after wetting them and adding cleanser. It was both satisfying and disgusting seeing how much makeup came off my brushes. I don’t think my brushes have ever been this clean after washing them. After using the mat it is super easy to clean, just wash with a little more brush cleanser, rinse, and air dry. I hang mine in the shower.
Foreo Luna: For years I have been using the Clarisonic Cleansing Brush which I have loved. I had heard so many great things about the Luna that I put it on my Christmas wish list. The highlights of the Luna for me are that it is easy to clean since it is silicone (no brush heads to replace monthly!), one charge lasts over 400 uses, it is completely waterproof, and it leaves my skin feeling super soft. It does a great job cleansing the skin. I always remove my makeup first with a face cleansing oil and then I like to use a foaming cleanser with the Luna. The bristles are very delicate that my sensitive skin doesn’t even get red when I use it. This has been a great addition to my cleansing routine.
Clip on Strainer: My sister brought this to our Favorite Things party and it is pretty genius. You just clip this little strainer on to the side of your pot and you are able to pour off the liquid. Brilliant!
