November Favorites: Old And New Treasures


And just like that, Thanksgiving weekend and Black Friday sales are over, and we are saying goodbye to November. A day after Thanksgiving, Christmas trees are out, lights are twinkling through the windows, and we are indeed in December. I cannot believe that 2021 is almost over.


And like with any other month, I am here to chat about my November favorites which range from skin care tips to underwear.




Skincare


I recently discovered a fantastic yet straightforward skin care tip that I could not believe I had never used before. I think adding this step to any skincare routine will yield excellent results. The secret is face oil and massage. So simple, right? And yet highly effective!


I add 5-10 minutes of self-care during my evening routine to massage my face with Luna Sleeping Night Oil by Sunday Riley or Renew Pure Radiance Face Oil by True Botanicals. They both are lovely products.


I do not have a strict routine or step-by-step massage plan. I use small circular motions to massage my face and neck. After the massage, my skin looks refreshed and has a healthy pinkish glow. I feel like the skin retains a healthy appearance and looks more revitalized in the morning.


I do not understand why I haven't done this before. The effort is very minimal, but the payoff is excellent!


Olive & June Nail Polish


A few months ago, I saw an Olive & June nail polish ad, and I got curious. The color selection was enticing, and I purchased a few colors. I did not have high hopes because many nail polish brands do not deliver on their promises.


However, I have to admit that I fell in love with the Olive & June products. I like them better than the Lights Lacquer ones. Depending on the polish type, the Olive & June nail polish lasts at least four to five days without chipping. The sparkly polishes last longer than matte ones. Overall, they hold up beautifully without losing color or shine throughout the wear.


A quick note about Lights Lacquer polishes: recently, I have been disappointed with the Lights Lacquer products. I noticed that polishes do not last; especially bold colors, they tend to chip on the next day. Sadly I have to report that I no longer purchase Lights Lacquer. And I know they were my favorites at some point, but no more.



MeUndies Racerback Bralette


I am always on the hunt for a great supportive and comfortable bra. About a year ago, I discovered a Racerback Bralette by MeUndies. I knew the brand primarily for their underwear, but something made me try their bralette. And ever since, I have been hooked. It is my absolute favorite to wear around the house or on chill days under sweaters or loose tops.


I do not feel comfortable wearing it under more fitted tops since the bra does not have build-in cup inserts. But other than that, I think this is the comfiest bralette made with the softest material that hugs me in pure comfort.


New Balance Sneakers


Now, let's talk shoes, more specifically sneakers. Recently, I was looking for a new pair and noticed New Balance Classics Sneakers in purple. I have many purple items in my wardrobe, so I decided to try these out since they would work with many of my outfits.


Since I got them about a month ago, I have worn them almost every day; they are comfortable and stylish. I pair them with jeans most of the time, but I sometimes mix them with a skirt or dress. There is something cool and unexpected when a delicate dress is paired with sneakers. It is most definitely a statement look.


Merit Beauty Flush Balm


Merit Beauty is my most recent makeup discovery. The brand focuses on minimalistic makeup that is affordable, practical, and nonsense-free.


I fell in love with their Flush Balm in Cheeky. It is a soft pinkish-red color that complements my skin tone perfectly. The color is buildable but sheers out easily. I also like the formula because it seamlessly melts into my skin, giving my cheeks a natural healthy glow.


I am also testing a few other Merit products: foundation, mascara, and lip oil. I will keep you posted if any of them become my favorites.

 

So that is it. Short and sweet. I hope you enjoyed going through my November favorites with me. I love the Favorites Posts because they clearly spell out what I genuinely love and wear/use almost every day.


I hope to see you again soon!
