Since I quite enjoy reading everyone’s posts about their monthly favorites I thought it would be fun to do something that would allow me to feature the likes and dislikes of some of my favorite people. So that is exactly where the idea for the “Love It, Loathe It: Friends Edition” came from. I plan to make this a regular feature on my site so keep an eye out for more posts like this one and please comment below to let me know what you think.
To kick things off, we’re going to begin with the lovely Carolina who was kind enough to be the first to take part. Not only is she family and a fellow lip balm connoisseur, but she is a wife and full-time mommy on the go living in a big bustling city. Without any further adieu, here are her answers to my questionnaire and accompanying picture.
Skin care product:
Love it: Neutrogena Oil Free Moisture for combination skin – Best
face moisturizer ever (for me at least)! Nice balance of hydration without
being oily or greasy.
Loathe it: Burt’s Bees – Peach & Willow Bark Deep Pore Scrub
smells really weird and when you’re done using it your face still feels
Bath or shower product:
Love it: A loofah – I love loofahs, seriously they make you feel SO
clean. Also, Moonlight Path Body Wash by Bath & Body Works or Yardley Oatmeal
& Almond Bar Soap, both smell wonderful, although my husband says the latter
smells like old lady.
Loathe it: Dove products – They dry out my skin. Soap, body wash
you name it.
Hair product or tool:
Love it: BioSilk Silk Therapy – It makes your hair sleek and soft,
it smells great plus a small bottle lasts forever. You only need a pea
size and that’s for long hair!
Loathe it: Pillow Curlers (I think they’re by ConAir) – I’m a lazy hair
person so I gave these a try, they just made me look like I forgot to brush
Love It: Clinique quick eyes cream shadow in 01 sparkling nude –
I can get away with putting just this and some gloss on. It is my grab and
throw on and run out the door eyeshadow. The applicator is great too.
Loathe It: Colored Mascara – I don’t get it.
Love it: Currently I’m addicted to Palmer’s Dark Chocolate &
Peppermint gloss. It gives the glossy shine without the stick and it gives
great hydration which is wonderful for a chap stick fanatic!
Loathe it: Anything from SoftLips – At first I loved them mainly
because of smell/taste but then it was like my lips built a barrier to them
and they made my lips feel like helmets.
Love it: Clinique Almost Makeup in 02 light – It’s the only foundation
I get along with, it is super light and you don’t feel it. Pretty much a
foolproof foundation once you pick your color. I use a Clinique brush
applicator to apply it evenly.
Loathe it: Sponge applicator – They make me feel like I’m
caking stuff on my face.
Love it: Sinful Colors Professional in 944 Innocent – It’s the
best bright green nail polish. I had it on my toes all summer.
Loathe it: Super long fake nails – They look so unnatural!
Love it: Ops! – It’s a Brazilian perfume I’ve loved since I think
junior hight school. It has a really nice subtle scent, can’t get sick of
Loathe it: I don’t like smelling like food. Food scented
body sprays weird me out.
Love it: Motherhood Maternity Jeans Skirt – I love my dark jean
skirt that fits me while I’m pregnant and after.
Loathe it: Halter Top Dresses.
Love it: Light Pashminas – They go with everything and keep you
warm when needed.
Loathe it: Gladiator Sandals – I don’t understand Roman shoes for
Book, magazine, movie, tv show or game:
Love it: Pride & Prejudice – the book by Jane Austin & the newest
Loathe it: Family Guy – that little baby makes me angry.
Love it: All Angels – I don’t think I’ve heard anything of theirs
that I don’t like.
Loathe it: Screaming music – I know there is a genre title but
seriously they just scream you can’t hear the lyrics or enjoy the music
because they’re screaming!
Love it: My iPhone – I’m addicted to being able to check
