FIVE THINGS FRIDAY PART 15!! Here we go again 🙂

We hope you got outside and enjoyed some of this warmer weather if you are here in CT! Well, except for the rain that tailed the end of this week.

As always, we try to bring a good mix of our Five Things Friday. We always like to include something beauty related and something more house-hold.

Five Things Friday Part 15!

Lancôme Dual Finish Powder

Eva here. Beauty is up first! This is one of my must-have powders and it is totally a splurge that is worth it.

This is a dual finish powder foundation that also offers a shine-free and matte finish. I really struggle with oily skin as the day goes on and this is really great for that.

(I also talk about a primer I love for my oily skin here).

a really great Matte Finish powder. Great for oily skin!

Benefits (Source):

  • In dry makeup application, it’s specialized emollients set onto skin seamlessly and condition skin’s surface.
  • From normal to oily skin, dry to combination skin, it’s suitable for all skin types.

Some reviews will say the smell of it is strong; I disagree. I think it’s pleasant and refreshing! With all of this said, this powder really does give a nice and flawless finish. As I really do struggle with breakouts with wearing mask so much, I like that this covers well and helps keep the shine at bay.

Do not mind my dirty makeup brush, LOL. Needs to be cleaned again 🙃

Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets

Dawn here!

Oil absorbing sheets are great to have on hand to remove excess oil and shine from your face. They won’t smudge or disturb your makeup or leave behind any residue.

I have noticed throughout the day my T-zone area gets very shiny, and these silky sheets instantly remove the oil from my skin like magic. I rarely leave home without them.

Oil absorbing sheets that really work and are super easy to use.

They are very easy to use:

Open package and peel off sticker on the panel where there is an adhesive strip that helps to grab the sheets. Gently blot on face where needed and dispose used sheet in the trash.

Clean&Clear oil absorbing sheets are a great solution for oily skin.

I know most of you have heard of them and/or used these, but Eva forgot about these sheets and it reminded me to include them for “FTF”!!

Toilettree Products Water Resistant Nose and Ear Hair Trimmer w/LED light


Dawn here~ As we get older, are hormones cause hair to grow more rapidly! Going through menopause I’ve noticed my facial, nose, and ear hairs are out of control! DARN MENOPAUSE!!

I originally purchased this Toilettree nose and ear trimmer for my husband but I ended up using it for myself. I LOVE IT!!!

A must have and a great, affordable trimmer. Advice to Eva – get ready for when you go through menopause. LOL!!!!


Eva here…. I CANNOT GO WITHOUT THESE MUGS! and the white one is only 13.99 right now.

First off, as you all see on Instagram, I drink black coffee pretty much non-stop. And not just that, I LIKE IT HOT. The second it gets even slightly cold I dump it out and make a new one, and quite honestly, I found that to be so wasteful.

After some research, I almost pulled the trigger on some Yeti Mugs, since I love the Yeti Tumblers (also found here), but was looking for something most cost-effective. The accountant in me lives to save a penny when I can!

RTIC mugs - really hold up to their promise and keep hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold.

The RTIC mugs hold up to their promise and at a really great price point. They keep my coffee hot for HOURS, which says A LOT!! So not only am I able to enjoy the same cup of coffee for a long period of time, I am not wasting coffee.

The company’s details:

“20oz. RTIC Tumblers are stainless steel, double wall vacuum insulated. Keeps your drinks ice cold longer – works great for hot beverages. The included all-new shaded Splash Proof lid lets you know exactly how much drink you have. The flip-top closure resists spills and is straw friendly. Easy to clean.”

Listerine Pocketpak Cool Mint Breath Strips

We saved the best for last because well… coffee breath may require a freshening strip.

A perfectly powerful breath refresher in a tiny package.

I’ve (Dawn) been using the Listerine pocketpak cool mint breath strips for years, and I simply can’t live without them.

These mint breath strips refresh and kill 99% of germs caused by bad breath. They dissolve instantly on your tongue and leave mouth feeling clean and fresh.

listerine breath strips - they work and are GREAT for your mouth!

The portability and convenience of the pocketpaks are appealing to me. Just pop one in your mouth to control bad breath and you are good to go.

NO JOKE, I buy them in bulk from Amazon, that’s how obsessed I am with them.


SO there it is, Five Things Friday Part 15! Another one in the books & we hope you enjoyed it.
