Happy Friday and here we are with Five Things Friday Part 6!
It is also September 11… a day to #neverforget. Where were you on this very day? We both grew up in Fairfield County, CT (New Canaan & Norwalk) and so many lives were directly impacted. Being in an area where a lot of people live and then commute to NYC, we both know many who passed and had friends who lost loved ones. Very tragic.
On a more positive note, let’s discuss our Five Favorite Things this week.
This may seem odd and a weird one to talk about OR we are just behind the game and you’ve heard about these for years, lol!
It is not a typo.. it is “tinkle” and not “twinkle” (ha-ha).
These razors are more than just for your eyebrows…. we both use them on our whole face (yes, you read that right).
Please be careful THEY ARE SHARP!
Eva – my bestfriend Alicia introduced these to me a few years ago. She discovered them through a blogger. No joke, I think my other girlfriends and I ordered them right on the spot from Amazon. I use them mostly for the peach fuzz (like Dawn below) off my face. It also is so great to exfoliate! My skin feels so smooth after and my makeup goes on effortlessly.
Dawn – I’ve noticed that I get awful chin hairs since I’ve been going through menopause, which is extremely embarrassing!! Running the Tinkle razor quickly over my face in the morning helps remove those chin hairs and peach fuzz hairs which allows for my makeup to apply smoother.
Super easy to find and purchase from Amazon.
Next to #2! Dawn here. You will often hear us say this is a “staple product” the Too Faced Bronzer is one of them.
A few years ago I gave Eva for her birthday a gift bag filled with my favorite products. The Too Faced bronzer was one of the items in the bag, and it is now a “staple product” of hers.
We both use it everyday! Love the matte finish and it’s easy to apply. Very natural looking (not orange) and it’s long lasting.
Yes, I (Eva) absolutely love this bronzer. For me, I am all about the matte finish (I have oily skin). I was really impressed with how easy it goes on and how long it lasts. It is GREAT for contouring, too. I’ll show in a video soon how I use it for that.
It comes in 3 different colors:
- Milk Chocolate (light to medium)
- Chocolate (medium to deep) *this is the one we have
- Dark Chocolate (deep to tan)
**DEFINITELY WORTH A TRY! We both get it from Ulta.
Number 3 and another beauty product coming at you is a face mask.
Dawn here – You’ll feel like you just stepped out of a Day spa after having a very expensive facial. Your skin will feel rejuvenated, hydrated and glowing like a movie star getting ready to walk the red carpet in just 15-20 minutes.
The mask adheres to your face like a second skin.
I highly recommend that you have some alone time when wearing the mask so you don’t frighten your family members. My husband said I looked like Michael Myers from the Halloween movies! I literally scared the you know what out of him. Lol!!
All are available at Nordstroms. $10 each. Trust me your skin will love you!
Bringing you now some home products for #4 and #5.
So am I (Dawn) the only one who has spent hundreds of dollars trying to find the perfect pillow?!?!
I can’t tell you how many pillows I have under my bed (why I’m saving them WHO KNOWS?) that I am so disappointed with!!
My best friends Sandy and Timmy were randomly telling me about how well they sleep on their boat because of the awesome pillows they have. On a side note they liked them so much they bought them for their house. I took them on their word and ordered them. SO HAPPY I DID!!!
They come in a vacuumed sealed package. It was quite amusing watching them expand to full size. I ordered queen size pillows which fits a standard size pillow case.
The pillows are:
- 100% cotton
- very high quality
- comfortable (soft, yet firm)
- dust mite, mold, and mildew resistant
- machine washable
- super cooling (helps with my menopausal night sweats)
- perfect if you suffer with neck and back pain
They feel like you are sleeping on a cloud!
MANY, MANY, MANY thanks to Sandy and Timmy for recommending them!
Last but not least, we bring you another home product!
Mr. Clean keeps coming out with amazing products to make cleaning quick and easy. I (Dawn) will tell you that I do ENJOY cleaning. I owned my own cleaning business for over 35 years. I’ve used so many cleaners over the years that just don’t work, and this won’t disappoint you.
Clean Freak is my everyday go to cleaner. It works great on all types of surfaces. But please always read the instructions first before using.
The misting sprayer is fun to use and gets into hard to reach areas. The smell is fantastic and it works like a charm. As you can see in the photo below I have stocked up on spray and refill bottles. Lol!
Best multi surface cleaner I have ever used!!
Give it a try, you won’t be sorry!!
You may have to search a little to find this, but notably Walmart seems to have it.
Well there are our 5 things for “Five Things Friday Part 6” on this 9/11. See our previous 5 things post here. Hope you all are healthy and safe.
XO, the cousins.
