Leaving on a jet plane.....

.

So my flight takes off in a couple hours and I thought id leave y'all with a post since I'll be stuck on the plane for 5 hours and oddly enough when I get off it, it will be 10pm Eastern time!

I will try and answer all your questions/emails as soon as I get there!

Here is my recent TINY haul from Walgreens as I needed to get some things to take on my trip:


I got the Monistat Chafing-Relief Gel, someone asked if it was different from what I mentioned before in which I said "anti-chafing" gel but it's the same thing...anti of course meaning "against" so it's a preventative gel for chafing, hence chafing relief. Sorry for the confusion. :)

I got the Humectress Leave-In Conditioner Spray, so far I love it and will do a formal review of course later.



The ingredient is dimethicone which is found in many primers (or other ingredients ending in 'cone'). The texture is the same as the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer, as well as the Camellia Rose Skin Soothing Primer in which I also did a review. I've used it for close to a week now and it works; it's definitely a nice cheaper alternative to expensive primers and of course, easy to find in any drugstore.

Some people may have a reaction to certain ingredients so use caution when purchasing products, I for one don't experience any problems with many ingredients, including talc, but of course you should limit the amounts of use with those ingredients.



I also nabbed a couple NYX Lipglosses, "Tea Rose" and "Cady Shop" which I think they meant to say "Candy Shop" but the label says "Cady"....(swatches coming soon)


I am going to miss my bed...my room...YOU GALS, and of course the BF. :(

I will try and update as soon and as often as I can, of course pics of my adventure!

I love Tea Rose gloss, it's gorgeous, hopefully you'll love it too! Crazy to think that 5 hours just has you going across your country.. 5 hours from here in the UK would get me to the middle of Europe :D xx

i'm confused! this might sound ilke a silly question, but, do you guys use the chafing gel as a primer for face?? or do you use it for chafing?

Safe and fun trip! Hope you didn't forget your camera!

Ethereal Prey said...

Have a fun trip! I may check out the monistat as a primer being that the smashbox one is a wee bit pricey. Take pics, check out the pro store! And if you have time maybe you can do my makeup while ur in nyc hee hee! Check out the flip bbq restaurant!

ladystarr said...

have a good trip vanessa! I got my monistat a few days ago, but I haven't used it yet. I'm glad it worked for you! I'm excited to start using it!

Have a great trip sis! :)

Hope you have a safe and fun trip!

Hey love,
about the monistat chafing-relief gel isn't it specifically made for the body not the face? Since the face is very dedicate would you say it is safe to put it on? I just purchased the smashbox photo finish and i was amazed how it blend flawlessly on my skin. Will the monistat will me the same results? Thanks a bunch and hope you have a safe trip.

Hi Nessa,

how you doin?
I've been wanting to ask you this question about NYX lippies. Since they cost very very cheap/ very affordable let's say. Do they taste funky at all? Do they really really keep your lips creamy (not overly creamy). Thanks!! still loving reading your blog!! peace!

mandilicious said...

i miss you already!..have fun at the pro store!

MakeupByRenRen said...

hey honey buns..stay safe in the NY! I can't wait to hear about your trip...i'm going in the end of may and you have to tell me how to get to the pro store!

jeannie said...

Hey Vanessa!
Just wanted to share my first review with you! Thanks for all of yours - you inspired me! I'm going to start updating a lot!=)

Naomi:) said...

I have never heard of using monistat as a primer. Maybe i'll try it one day. I love NYX!

Nikki of Vox said...

Great swatch of putting the Camellia Rose and Monistat side by side. I've used Monistat a few times too and it's okay. I'm still waiting for my Camellia Rose samples though. Have a great trip!

(g)ezebel said...

i was just wondering what section at walgreens you found the monistat chafing-relief gel. like was it in the make-up section? face cleansing section? or bodyy?
hahaha.
thankssss!

Vanessa said...

hi anonymous, next time please leave your email so I can contact you directly! :)

monistat is obviously for women's needs so it's located where the tampons and maxi pads are...

joann said...

oh i see.. thanks for getting back to me so quickly.
hmm.. well im planning to go to walmart or walgreens todayy..and im hoping i'll be looking in the right area. hahaha.
is it near the other lotions at all? or is it just near the tampons and maxi pads.

sorry for the many questions...
umm. yea i don't think the email thing is working for me. haha

jomama said...

I just found you're blog and I'm loving it! That's a great idea about the Monistat...could save me lots of money. Does it keep shine at bay? Has it broken you out at all?
