This vs That | First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream vs CeraVe Moisturizing Cream

this vs that first aid beauty vs cerave (2)

Have you ever started using a product just because it was there but then realized it may just be the greatest thing you've ever slathered on? No? Well, that's what happened to me when I reluctantly dipped into a tub of First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. I'd had the tub in my stash for some time (read last Christmas...) I knew a lot of people love it, but just didn't expect to be wowed. I was so wrong. Now, as great as it is, I've also had CeraVe on my radar, as it seems just as many love it. The formulas seem similar, but with CeraVe providing a lot more product at about half the price. What's a dry skinned gal to do?

A few days ago i was reading about this thing wherein people who are knowledgeable on a topic, or even just highly interested, make websites and write about said topic. It sounded so intriguing, yet vaguely familiar to me all at once. They call it.... Blogging. Ahem. Jokes aside, it's been a while, I know. Buuut, I've gotten some of my tech issues sorted out (literally everything I own is dying or in need of some sort of repair) so we can chat up the new OPI Tokyo Collection for Spring 2019. Let's go!

It's 2019! Well, that may not be anything to get excited about, just yet anyway, but at least we can put 2018 behind us. A new year is always a little bit exciting though, as it brings the potential of change, renewal, and better days. Who couldn't use a few more of those? Better skin could also be on your horizons, especially if you jump on the January Pearlesque Box featuring Modicum Skin Care.

It's that time of year again, aka the end. It's about time to take a little look back at the year that was, at least from my corner of the beauty world. I didn't blog as much in 2018, but I still managed to get my hands on some great products. I took a dive into my analytics and have determined my top 18 posts, aka the most popular of the year. Ready? Let's go!

Merry Christmas Eve! I know, I'm cutting things seriously close with this last holiday post, but the OPI Nutcracker & the Four Realms Collection landed at my door Friday afternoon. I've been busy swatching, and have to say that this is a really solid collection if you're still looking for a something-something for your festive manicure. Let's get to some polish, shall we?
