Last year I decided that I wasn’t going to continue doing a monthly favorites post; however, I’ve been thinking about bringing it back. I thought it would be fun to go back and revisit some of my favorites from last year and see where they stand now. I’ll link of all the products and the original blog post in case you want to read why I fell in love with them to begin with.

Let’s start with my very first ‘favorites’ post in October 2018.
Non-stick toaster bags – Yes, I’m still using them and I still love them. Basically, they make putting together a grilled cheese sandwich quick and easy. Let me repeat that last part, quick and easy. 🙂 And no, it doesn’t take hours in the kitchen to make a grilled cheese sandwich, but these save you the time when cleaning the pan afterwards! Wow, that makes me sound so lazy. LOL!
P&J Trading Spice set of 6 Premium Grade Fragrance Oils – Still love these! I have used the oils throughout the fall and winter months. I still can’t believe that none of the fragrances are overwhelming or give me a headache! I love them and recently purchased the Spring/Summer oils! I’m excited to try these as well.
Deep Steep Coconut Oil Sugar Scrub – I love coconut and this is still a favorite! Obviously, I love the way it smells, but the way it makes your skin feel after you’ve gotten out of the shower is amazing. Your skin will not only smell good, but it does a great job of exfoliating and leaving your skin feel so soft.
CeraVe Hydrating Facial Cleanser & Moisturizer – I’m still using them every day and I haven’t found any others that work for me as well as these two products. I love that the cleanser leaves my face clean and soft. The moisturizer contains hyaluronic acid and ceramides, which is perfect for my dry skin. I know there are a great deal of products to choose from, but I’m not tempted to try any of them. I’m sticking with these two.
Monthly Favorites post – November 2019
BareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream, Natural 05 – I think I’ve lost count of how many I’ve been through, but my guestimate is that I’m starting on number 7 of this product. I still use it consistently, especially during the spring and summer months. It’s very hydrating, gives a light coverage and makes my skin look healthy. I love that it also has a sunscreen. If you don’t like to wear a heavy or even medium coverage foundation, I would suggest trying this one. It’s very lightweight and makes your skin look so smooth and natural.
Milani Color Statement Lipstick, Dulce Carmelo – My favorite hands down! I wear it every day and I recently bought an extra one to keep on hand. It’s just a beautiful light pink/nude shade with a very pretty sheen to it. It doesn’t fade and it’s comfortable to wear.
Monthly Favorites post – December 2019
Bath & Body Works Hot Cocoa Candle – I’ve purchased this candle two more times since my original post. I guess you can say it really is a favorite! It’s a perfect candle to burn during the fall and winter months. It smells delicious and let me give you a fair warning – you’ll need to keep hot cocoa on hand because you will be craving it! I will continue to purchase this for next fall and winter!
That’s it! That’s all of my favorite products that I’m still loving and using. Do you have any tried and true products that you always reach for? I’d love to hear about them in the comments below.
