Oh my gosh I can’t WAIT to show y’all my costume for Halloween this year! I always try to do something a liiiittle different than just your usual ghost or ghoul. And this year, I am SO excited because there is a costume contest at work and I am SO ready!
So this month I tried a lot of new products, I went to a few places for the first time (some for the second but after they had remodeled), and I tried a few health products that I have really been loving! But I also tried a couple of things that were…well very much just not as great as I’d hoped. Today I wanted to share two of my highlight new tries this month and one of my not so highlight product try’s. Lets dive in!
TAHNYC (pronounced tonic) Skincare
Okay y’all, this stuff is so easy to use and the results I have seen on my skin already has been incredible! I have been using their bespoke skincare line which is a four step process (read more here) that helps balance skin tone and helps with skin aging. TAHNYC also has some other amazing products in their line up like Rose Milk Moisturizer, Aloe Rose Essence Serum, Blue Butterfly Essence Serum, and Strawberry Nectar Rejuvenating Serum. I am dying to try the Rose Milk or the Strawberry Nectar next! What I love in particular about this brand, is that they care so much for MY skin needs. They don’t generalize and glaze over what we all really need in a skincare routine!
A Denton Classic, J.T. Clothiers Boutique
So fun fact, J.T. Clothiers has been serving the Denton and surrounding communities for over 40 years! They’ve got name brands like free people and patagonia, and even local Denton designers like LJ Artisan Designs! I had the pleasure of attending their after hours happy hour this month and I was BLOWN away at how they have really revamped the store! Normally, I don’t buy alot of boutique clothing because I know it’s generally really expensive. I can never really justify spending that kind of money on one item! But, J.T. Clothiers had really fair prices for what they had in store. I found some things from free people, one item from Elan USA, and even something for Fielder! It was so much fun to shop around after a long day of work, sip a mimosa, and get the real Denton experience thanks to J.T. Clothiers right on the Square!
Fenty Foundation Craze
Okay, so I have had this bottle for a few months, but never used it. So this month I made it my goal to try and use it for at least a week straight before I made an opinion over it. Now that I am done, I am not a fan! I really thought I would be but it wrecked my skin for that week! My skin is not really sensitive, but when it doesn’t like something, it REALLY doesn’t like it and reacts like so. After talking and looking into it more, it looks like for my skin type, there is just a little too much oil that will clog up my pores. Which in turn, caused a not so fun breakout to ensure allll over this little ladies face.
Overall, I had a hard time NOT liking products in October. There has been SUCH a great following in the makeup/skincare community and all the holiday stuff is starting to be sneak peaked and I can’t WAIT to start trying all the holiday goodies! And here in Denton, I have started really looking into participating more with the activities and WOAH! theres a lot to keep up with! Next month I already know of one product I am trying and I have been keeping it a SECRET but trust me loves, its a great one!! Stay tuned for the November edition of Hits and Miss!
