The Good Stuff: Five Things I'm Loving

Moroccan Oil
I know I'm a bit late and everyone goes on and on about Moroccan Oil now but I've been using this stuff for about six months and I can honestly say I really do think it lives up to the hype. I use about the amount of a ten cent coin (I have a lot of hair) on damp hair after the shower. I find that when I use Moroccan Oil my hair dries faster, looks shinier, healthier and feels softer. Honestly, what more could you want? Also, I'd be interested in using other oil treatments, anyone know a goodie?

OPI: Black Cherry Chutney
So everyone knows my favourite nail polish colour is OPI's Mod About You, but with winter creeping up over here in Australia soft colours just aren't cutting it anymore. Black Cherry Chutney is a gorgeous deep burgundy. From far away it almost looks black. It is similar to OPI's Lincoln Park After Dark but it has more burgundy tones and a tad more shimmer. It really is beautiful and perfect for winter.

MAC Lady Gaga Viva Glam Lipstick
I admit that I bought this lipstick because it was sold out in the US at the time and because I have a soft spot for Gaga but I honestly love it. It's a light blue based pink and it's a lustre. Usually I hate lustres because they can be chunky but this one is smooth and the colour payoff is perfect. I rock it with dark smokey eyes when I'm going out or just black liquid liner on my upper lash line.

Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel
I always come back to Dermalogica and I always feel like my skin has never felt better when I use it. I've been using it again for the last couple of months after running out of my cetaphil and It's just reminded me of why I always come back to it. My skin always feels so clean and smooth after I use it and that's what I want from a cleanser.

Benzoyl Peroxide
I know some people are crazy anti using Benzoyl Peroxide to treat acne but I find that if I get a spot that I know will take forever to heal, a little BP goes a LONG way. It basically just dries out the spots but I've found that it really works for me and it's cheap! Pick it up from any chemist. There's tonnes of different types, I've been using Benzac AC 10% but honestly I think there all as good as each other.

Hope some of that was interesting to you guys, let me know if you enjoy this type of post!
