Sniffles on Sunday

It seems like cold/flu time has come early this year, because literally everyone has been getting ill. So went I woke up this morning with the sniffles I was not surprised to say the least. I know beauty products can’t cure colds but I’m actually feeling much better. So I thought I would show you my stash of products that make me feel better.

Philosophy’s Eye’s Wide Open Eye Gel
If you wake up hung over, tired or sick this is a great emergency product to have. This gel feels refreshing once applied and doesn’t leave a greasy residue like other gel eye creams I tried. Also the caffeine in this product helps de puff tired eyes making you instantly look more awake. It’s a perfect product to keep around for morning makeup emergencies.

Pocket Bac’s
I love these mini antibacterial gels and always leave one in my purse. When I’m sick I always like to have one close by, especially when you’re coughing into your hands and sneezing. YUCK. I just opening Montana Morning Air and I can’t tell you how it smells because to be honest my nose it plugged.

Clinique Airbrush Concealer
I just love this lightweight concealer, because it’s both lightweight and illuminating. There is nothing worse then when you feel sick and then you go look in the mirror and you look sick too. This might be unnecessary to some but even though I’m not going anywhere it makes me happy.

Avene Cold Cream Lip Blam
This is one of my favorite lip balms. It’s ultra moisturizing which is perfect for days where you feeling a bit blah. Is it just me or to chapped lips and colds go together?

Some non-beauty cold time essentials
  •       Cough candy
  •        Fuzzy blanket
  •        Tea
  •        A book, right now I’m reading one on vintage cakes. The whole book is filled with beautiful pictures and scrumptious recipes.
  •        Tylenol cold and sinus!!!
