Christmas Wishlist

Untitled #2
As you can probably tell from my wishlist, 3/4 items are skincare. I do own a good amount of makeup but skincare is something that I should get a bit better with. With saying that, I am an avid face washer. I can't even imagine going to bed without washing my face! I worked at a camp as a counselor the past four summers and even if I wasn't going to bed until 1:30 or 2:00 am I would make sure to peel myself away from my comfy bed and walk to the nearest sink just to wash my face and brush my teeth. What I mean with "get a bit better with" for skincare, is doing the extra steps. It's a routine for me to use my Origins Zero Oil Deep Pore face wash morning and night then follow up with one of my Olay moisturizers, but something I often skip out on is a mask. Before I begin, I wanted to thank the lovely Victoria for telling me how to create an online photo wishlist!

Here are the items that I have put on my Christmas Wishlist, which are not in any order:

1. Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask is a $28.00 mask that I've heard tons of good reviews on. I've heard that it really calms down your skin, reduces the redness in your spots, and clears out any impurities that you may have. Sounds like heaven to me!

2. I've heard a lot about this next product via YouTube. The Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm is a hard balm that you apply on to dry skin to massage all traces of your makeup away. It can take off face makeup and eye makeup, including mascara! I would love this balm because then I know for sure that all my makeup is off and I'm not going to sleep with traces of foundation on. After using this, you still do go on and wash your face with your usual face wash. This product can be found at Shoppers Drug Mart or Sephora for $35.00. I have heard that it is hard to spot on the shelves as it doesn't come with a box or anything, just comes as is!

3. The only non-beauty/skincare item on my wishlist this year are Mason Jar Candles by Bath and Body Works. There is currently a sale going on for 2 candles for $15.00 which is awesome. The candle photographed isn't necessarily the candle I would like to receive from Santa, but simply just a photograph of the Mason Jar style. I am pretty easy with scents, I love the Cranberry Pear Bellini candle they sell that I still haven't burnt through from last Christmas. I just love the scent I don't want to finish it! I like the Mason Jar style as they are smaller then the 3 wick and I don't burn candles enough to need the larger more pricy ones.

4. The last thing on my Christmas wishlist this year, is another mask by Origins. This one is the Drink Up 10 Minute Mask. This one is also $28.00 from Sephora and I would love this mask because although my skin can get a little shiny though out the day, it could definitely use some extra moisture. I tried to find the overnight mask that Origins sells, but I can't seem to find it on the Sephora website so I wonder if it has been discontinued.

Everything added up PRE tax comes to a total of = $108.00
Not bad Kyra...not bad.

That is all on my Christmas Wishlist this year! What's on yours?
