Recent favorites for fall

I’ve taken an inadvertent break from the blog but wanted to mention a handful of things I’ve landed on and have been really enjoying.

I received a deluxe sample of the Orlane Extreme Line-Reducing Lip Care in my January Sample Society subscription box, and when I took a look at the price for the full-sized version, I had to chuckle. Don’t get me wrong – I was definitely excited to try out a luxury product like this, it’s just that I was highly doubtful that a product like this, especially one for the lip area alone, could possibly be worth that kind of price tag.
