Weekly Roundup : Friday Faves #18

Happy first Friday of November! This week has flown by and it's already time for my weekly Friday favorites. Hope you all had a great week!




My first favorite is this pink portable phone charger. The hubs bought it for me when I started commuting so much because my phone wouldn't last the entire day. It's pink and it's shiny. Enough said.


I feel like I had to have used this Neutrogena Alcohol-Free Toner in my younger days because it's Neutrogena, a classic, so how could I not? But I couldn't have because I would have remembered something this amazing if I had. I seriously love this toner, it's so light and fresh and I love that it doesn't contain alcohol, which is really drying for your skin.


I'm throwing it back to an old classic and that's cold cream. Generally I get the Pond's version as my mom has sworn by it all her life, both as a cleanser and a moisturizer, but as I was walking around my local Dollar Tree I spotted this and couldn't pass it up. It works just as good as the Pond's version, but it has no scent. It removes tough waterproof and heavy makeup while leaving your skin super soft and moisturized.


I've been obsessed with charcoal cleansers ever since I tried the Michael Todd organic charcoal face wash and when I ran out I knew I had to purchase another one. Luckily I spotted this at a local drugstore and happily I like this one a lot better. This one makes my skin feel tingly which in my mind is some kind of proof that it's working and really getting down in my pores. Whether or not that's true I really don't know, but I do know that it does cleanse my face and that's what matters.


I have been all about the hand creams since the weather got considerably cooler and this Yes to coconut one is one of my favorites. It's really thick and creamy and, of course, the fact that it smells like coconuts ups the lovability factor. It's also a cuticle cream and mine get really cracked this time of year so I've thrown this in my handbag and use it all the time.

Let me know what you've been loving lately and happy weekend everyone! XO

  13. Pink and shiny = PERFECT ! Hehe , I need a portable phone charger as well, I had one but them I changed my phone and the lead doesn't fit so I'm a little lost without it :) I also really want to try that hand cream, I really want to start looking after my hands and nails a bit more, so getting a new hand cream is definitely up there on my list of things to do ! :)

    Lots of love, Marianne xxx

    1. Hahaha YES! It's ridiculous, but I have to have a portable charger, I need my phone so I don't get super bored on the train LOL. I never thought about my hands until I started blogging. Doing makeup swatches really makes you realize how beat up your hands look, or at least that was my case hahaha. I work with my hands a lot and wash them 50 times a day so I needed a hand cream that would help them not get dry and cracked and this definitely works, it is really good! Thanks for stopping in my lovely friend, I hope you have a wonderful week! XO -Kim
