2016 is quietly lurking around the corner. Can you believe it? As a kid, the days went by slower than a snail on a sloth. I remember feeling as if each class & year & subsequent summer would last forever. Then high school came, then college, then life after university. Now we're here. It's December 2015. I don't really know how it happens.
As I age, my beauty routine changes. Since I'm in my mid 20s I've come to focus on funky lip colors, SPF, & perfumes. Some of my December favorites include the drop in temperature, the occasional gloomy day, & these beauty products. Let's take a look, shall we?
I have oily skin but my face is oddly dry this season. The Rose Geranium Face Moisturizer (similar) from HollyBeth Organics is incredibly rich & works wonders for my skin. I talked about it in my HollyBeth Organics Review from last year. The moisturizer is so thick I believe even those with the driest of skin can get some use out of it.
The Modere Antioxidant Gel (similar) is such a delight. It primes my skin, making it feel as smooth as a baby's butt. The gel comes as part of a beauty box but you can always purchase it separately. I reviewed the Modere Beauty Box last year. Packed with vitamin C, the antioxidant gel smells like a piece of citrus heaven.
CC Creams are new to me so I took the leap & bought the Alba Botanica Even Advanced CC Cream with SPF 15. I mentioned it a couple months ago in my New Face Products I'm Excited About post. This just in: I'm still excited about it! After blending into my skin, I can immediately notice my complexion is brighter & more even.

The subtle glitter & the invigorating scent of the Winter White Fresh Roll On Perfume from Bath & Body Works tie in well with the holiday season. Admittedly, this shimmer roll-on is several years old; I found it in the back of the cabinet one day. Oops. It still smells lovely so I decided to use it. I don't think it exists anymore but this one is somewhat similar.
Autumn is all about those moody, dark lip colors but I adore the Italia Deluxe Lip Liner in Dusty Rose. I bought 12 shades for under $10!!! I'm still impressed at the bargain. Dusty Rose is a soft, pretty shade of pink. Check out the other colors I purchased in my review.
My autumn beauty routine involves a lot more moisturizer than normal simply because my face gets so dry. I always moisturize but the past couple months I needed to moisturize in multiple layers. Is your face dry this season? Have you tried any of these products? What are some of your favorite items for December? :]
