February 2016 FabuFinds
Every month, I review my empty products. Some products are not worth thinking about once the month is over. Others are wonderful and seem like they’re made for me. Those are FabuFinds, and I generally devote a little more time to discussing them. They are items I have repurchased and will continue to repurchase even at full price if I could not find a good promo code.
To eventually spotlight all of my FabuFinds, I will never repeat items already mentioned in a past article. That does not mean they lost their magic. It is also possible an item not spotlighted in a past Empties article may get promoted as I try it more and fall deeper in love. Other times, it is because I had a lot of FabuFinds in a previous month and had to condense the article. There were five products I consider FabuFinds in my February Empties that I have not discussed yet.
When it comes to drugstore moisturizers, Eucerin is king. Rarely do I try a Eucerin product that does not blow my socks off. The cheap 1oz lotion I’ve picked up from Target, and Ulta is an exception. That one is thin and does not moisturize deeply. Eucerin Intensive Daily Repair is another stand out product. This is the best body lotion I’ve tried (with a pump). It is intensely moisturizing, but it spreads easier than the incredibly thick one in the jar. Both of my boys have eczema and Eucerin is the product their pediatrician recommended to keep it at bay. If an eczema patch does pop up, the product below annihilates it quickly.
Egyptian Magic is more than a February FabuFind. It is one of my favorite beauty products of all-time. I love this product so much that I dedicated an article to this amazing multi-purpose balm. There are so many wonderful uses for this magical product I go over in the article. My personal favorites are eczema patches and cracked heels. It usually heals my boys eczema patches within 3-4 applications. Other people like it for tattoo care, makeup removal, facial moisturizer, hand cream and more.
Part of the reason I initially tried this line is Jennifer Anniston, who has seriously beautiful hair, was so impressed by this line she invested in it. Everything I’ve tried from the line so far has been good or better. Every line has duds, so I am sure I will find them with time, but that day has not come yet. The Living Proof Restore Mask Treatment is another winner. My hair saw instant results with this. It looked smoother, less frizzy, and felt softer. There is only one other mask I’d say is better. This is wonderful in its own right though, so it definitely deserves FabuFind Status. Where the other mask does add more shine, I notice my hair sheds less with this. For someone who sheds a lot, you notice when less hair than usual falls out.
The AHAVA Mineral Hand Cream uses deadsea water. Although I am unsure water from the dead sea is the reason this is so moisturizing, I know my hands always feel instantly soothed when I use this. It penetrates deeply to moisturize from within. The scent is not my favorite, but it fades quickly. This is a moderately thick cream does not leave behind a greasy feeling, and it makes my hands soft (which is not their usual state). A small amount is enough to take me from one hand wash to the next. I generally like to slather on products, but I love when I can use a cream that does not need a lot.
The Julep Konjac Sponge is the face version of It’s Fun to Exfoliate, a previous FabuFind. It helps with lather, so I use less cleanser. Between uses, it dries out. To let it completely dry out, I’ve been alternating cleanser with a cleansing balm that uses a muslin cloth. By the second day, it is completely dry. Less germs and bacteria live in a dry sponge versus a wet one, so I love that this does not stay wet. This is a gentle exfoliator that feels so soft, you barely feel anything at all.

I'm Kimberly. Shopping is always more fun when I've found the best deal available, so I am always on the hunt. My father instilled that in me, and I love that I carry a piece of him. Sometimes, my husband and sons (13 and 8) let me shop for them, too. They do not use as many beauty products as I do. We can all benefit from nice products, even though their routine ends with moisturizer. That is when I can convince my 13-year-old to apply it.
