Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. We have been enjoying our stay at the lake in Michigan. I even got a few post marathon runs in and they didn’t feel too bad!
I wanted to step away from the running chat today and share a few things I am absolutely loving right now. Please note that these are absolutely 100% my own views. I have not been compensated by any of these companies or products. But I certainly wouldn’t be opposed to it (wink, wink).
The first is this Boscia Exfoliating Peel Gel. I have had acne prone skin since I was 4 years old. I also have sun damage in the form of black spots on my forehead and other areas of my face. I got a sample of this stuff from Sephora during a recent trip and immediately ordered a 5 ounce bottle for $34. This stuff is amazing! You simply apply a small amount to your skin and watch as the dead layer rubs off.
I bought this to clear up my acne, but it has almost completely cleared my sun damage spots. It works way better than the prescription medicines my dermatologist gave me.
I then finish it off with the Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser. This stuff feels so good, with a slight warming sensation. It isn’t too harsh and my skin feels so soft when I am done. I also use my Clarisonic with this.
When I am outside and running I use the Colorescience powder recommended by my dermatologist. This comes in a convenient and easy to use tube in various shades and SPF levels. I love this because you can use it over your makeup and it also lasts for up to 2 hours with exercise. You can easily toss it in your purse or gym bag.
Since I am post marathon and trying to be healthy while curbing my runger, I have discovered a few delicious treats. My amazing friend Stephanie gave me a goody bag full of some of my new favorites:
Bare Banana Simply Baked Cinnamon Chips are our new favorite treat in this house. I first tried the plain flavor and Rock wasn’t a fan. I was thrilled to find this out because I thought they were delicious and didn’t have to share. They are crispy like chips and are made of just plain baked bananas. At 120 calories for 1/2 a cup serving, this is a pretty healthy treat. But when I pulled the cinnamon flavored chips out, Rock suddenly was intereste. Now we need to buy these in bulk. They are the perfect crunchy treat when you need a snack.
Figs. I love Fig Newtons but I have never just eaten figs. Thanks to Stephanie, we finally pulled them out of the pantry last night and gave them a try. They aren’t pretty, but we both loved them. We are hooked! It is like nature made it’s own candy for us.
What are your most recent new loves? Have you tried any of these?
