Minty Motivational Mondays


I stand here waiting for you to wake me up this Monday with some motivation. With what, you ask?! Mint, of course.

Also let it be known that Gaga's audio for "Do What You Want" dropped today as well as Justin Bieber's "Hold Tight" audio. Currently, Justin is promoting the hashtag #MusicMonday & will be releasing a new single for 10 weeks in a row leading up to his "Believe" Tour filmed documentary. Currently we're on week 2 or 3. "Do What You Want" is eloquently titled since Gaga paired up with R. Kelly on this collaboration. We all know that R. Kelly does what he wants with teen girls and yellow colored bodily liquids. ;o) Sorry, couldn't help myself. Wait! I know. Maybe R. Kels can borrow Justin's mop bucket instead. Sorry, couldn't help myself again, y'all. If there are two guys in the universe that I can't look at the same since such captivating news broke, it would totally have to be him and Bill Clinton. No more polka dot dresses, por favor. Can I get a Beep, Beep?! Holler. 

Tarte's Pure Delights LipSurgence Set, $34
Get it here.

Ummm, yeah....

Switching topics, invigorate your lips with some peppermint oil & Vitamin C. As you look to your left, you'll notice an 8-pc. awesome limited edition holiday set from Tarte. Your lips needed to not only smell great, but look great as well... like yesterday.

Four LipSurgences are matte & the other four in the set are a little more glossy. One can practically try out the entire stinking line of LipSurgences by purchasing this set. Did we mention that they're tiny enough to tuck in your pocket?! Pick them up soon as these no-need-for-sharpening wonders will be gone probably even before Black Friday.

L'Anza Mint Revitalizer Conditioner, $12
Get it here.

Moving on...

If you've never tried L'Anza Healing Haircare's Mint Revitalizer Conditioner, whoa buddy! It's a daily conditioner that wakes me up about as much as my hazelnut coffee does. It's infused with peppermint & tea tree oil. Personally I leave it on while washing my face, body or whatever. Finally, when I do rinse it off it's like someone gave me a bottle of Herbal Essence shampoo or conditioner in an airplane bathroom. Furthermore, go ahead & cue in O Face guy from Office Space the movie.

This conditioner also contains keratin bond system 2 (KB2) to heal each strand from root to tip. It's extremely weightless & has a pH of 5.5, which is also awesome sauce. I had heard that it got discontinued, but am not 100% sure of this fact. It is still available online & at some Ulta Beauty stores for sure.

Philosophy "Peppermint Stick 3-in-1, $16.50
Read more here.
What else do I love?

Philosophy Peppermint Bath & Body stuff! Some holiday sets of theirs are dubbed "Candy Cane", but this year we're 90% certain they'll be called "Peppermint Stick".

Any who, the point is that they're all refreshing and even my kiddos love them to death. If and when this set hits the bathtub in my house, the kids are trying to take baths like three times a day. For real.

Check your fave Philosophy counter around Black Friday time. Philosophy has zero info up on their site about it yet.

Deep Clean Cream Cleanser, $4.99
Get it here.

Two more faves come to mind if you need to immerse yourself further in minty goodness.

Neutrogena's Deep Clean Cream Cleanser is highly notable right up there with Clean & Clear's Dual Action Moisturizer for the face. Both also contain salicylic acid to help refine pores and treat existing blemishes. They're both also oil-free. Sham wow!

Clean & Clear's Dual Action Moisturizer, 2 / $10
On sale now at Walgreens. Stock up!

Both are available at pretty much any drug store known to man. Homo sapiens unite!
