The next best thing is linking up with Erika to showcase what I am currently loving right now. I don't know Erika personally but she is friends with Shay so in my book she is awesome! I love reading her blog!
For the favorite things party, you pick one or two things you are loving right now under $10. I had such a hard time picking two but decided to showcase these two:
cost: $6.98 at Wal Mart
Coconut oil is all the rage right now. I have used in many different ways since purchasing this jar last year- yes, last year. I use it on Caylee's super curly hair as a conditioner. I use it as eye make up remover. I have used it as shaving cream (more on that in a minute) and most recently as a body lotion. I must admit it felt weird slathering it on after a bath. I felt like a greased watermelon but the next morning, my skin did feel softer than normal. I don't know that I will continue using it as a body lotion- maybe occasionally. My favorite use for it is to remove eye makeup. It completely removes all of my makeup- even liquid eyeliner and waterproof mascara.
cost: $2.89 at Target
*This is on sale this week at Target- buy 3 at $2.89 and get one free!
If there has been a shaving cream on the market, I have tried it. I have dark hair so the hair on my legs is dark (sorry for TMI); therefore, in the summer, I have to shave everyday. I hate it. My mother in law told me to try the Aveeno shaving cream because it claimed to give you such a good shave you can skip a day. I tried the Aveeno but then when I saw the Target version, I thought I would try it. I have used this stuff for about a year and I love it. I can go a day between shaving even in the summertime, which is huge! I do, at times, use baby oil or coconut oil if my legs or dry or if I just feel like using something else.
I am finding that in some cases, you get what you pay for but overall, I am pleased with the Up and Up products at Target. The only Up and Up product I do not like at Target is the body wash. I cannot get it to lather.
Thanks for stopping by! I am going to go read all the other posts for the favorite things then probably go buy EVERYTHING!
Please take a minute to pray for our neighbors in Arkansas, Alabama, and other areas affected by these storms. CRAZY!
