Welcome back to Three Things Thursday; let's check out the three things I'm currently loving:
Ardell Individuals Lashes

|Please excuse the stray eyelash...|
I had always wanted to try individual false lashes, but they intimidated me a bit. I purchased both the Flare Short and Flare Medium, along with the glue, and they sat in my drawer for about 3 months before I finally decided to try them out. Let me tell you, I am so happy I did! While they are a bit tricky to apply - you have to finagle them to lay the way you want them to, something that I'm sure will become easier with experience - they last for quite a while! I use the semi-permanent glue, and the lashes lasted me almost a full week! Some people may not like the permanency, so you can use regular strip lash glue if you would like, but I prefer them to stay on for as long as possible (the website says they can last up to six weeks, but I have yet to see that happen). I apply 4-5 of the medium length lashes on my outer eyes, and then 4-5 of the short length lashes towards the center, leaving the inner corners natural. It really enhances the look of my eyes, but is not over the top. I find that when I have the lashes on, it eliminates the need for me to apply mascara to my top lashes, which saves me a few minutes when getting ready. I was at Sephora the other day, and I was asked by a cast member if my lashes were real, or if I had gotten extensions. When I told her they were individual falsies, she was floored! Needless to say, these lashes will become a regular part of my beauty routine.
Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion
This has been such a time saver in the morning! You simply shower as usual, and then rub the Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion on and rinse it off. Voila - instant moisture! I usually apply this right before rinsing out my conditioner, so then all I do is rinse off from head to toe, and I'm done with my shower. You may be wondering how it saves time, since I still have to apply it as I would regular lotion. Well, it only takes about one minute to incorporate the in-shower moisturizer into my routine, and about 5 minutes to apply lotion after the shower with the dry time and what not. 4 minutes may not seem like much, but I can use every minute I can get in the morning! Also, the Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion smells so nice and fresh, and leaves my skin so soft, it's a win for me!
