50 Words or Less Reviews: Some Things I Like

Happy 2020!

My first post this year is a shorter one. Just some items I like.

Thick, gives hair a lot of moisture without feeling oily. My fine hair takes on a surprising amount of volume with this. Vanilla/amber signature Amika scent.

Energy M102, ~$10

This large weasel hair brush has a lovely curvature, it's far from the flat mops you typically see with large eye shadow brushes. It hugs the eye, I get nearly as much enjoyment as I do out of Energy's weasel as I do Kolinksy.

Side view.

One of the best brushes you can get for under $25. Chubby pencil that comes to a proper taper. Dense. I use both the sides and the tip. 

The Ordinary 30% AHA + 2% BHA Peeling Solution, $7.20

Technically not something I like (I've sworn off The Ordinary) but something my spouse likes. He doesn't exfoliate much but on weekends he's been using this treatment. Effective and a pretty blood red color.

Urban Decay Fireball Eye Shadow, $20

I fell back into love with this shadow in 2019. Great as a blush topper and a very pretty eye shadow. It's peach with a pearly pink flash.

Bioderma Atoderm Moisturizing and Cleansing Oil, $~20

Nice mild oil body cleanser that doesn't strip skin. Has a strong floral-green scent though. Doesn't emulsify very much. The value size will last you a long time.

Nooni Marshmallow Whip Maker, $6 and Purito Defense Barrier pH Cleanser, ~$10

Eczema on my hand is acting up with the frequent washing I've been doing and it's nice to have something to make my suds in one place and spare my hands. A tiny bit of water will suffice, plunge up and down for a thick cushiony foam.

Purito's cleanser is inexpensive and functional. Less drying for me than Cosrx's gel cleanser. Barrier friendly with a pH of 5.5. Has a citrus + tea tree (natural) scent. Liquidy clear gel. This is my 4th tube.

That's it for this round up! What are some things you've liked lately? Have you tried any of the things mentioned?
