What's in my "beauty" drawer!


this is what you'd see if you opened up my drawer to the left of my sink...
it has all the goodies I use on a daily basis...
to smell yummy
be moisturized...
and clean! ha ha ha
MY DAILY ESSENTIALS are:
from the bottom left...
(you can click on all the names of thinks....I made them into links for you!)
SHIKAI Dry Skin Therapy (super body lotion...doesn't really have a scent to it though!)

above that is my EMPTY yellow and gold jar of L'Occitane DIVINE CREME moisturizer
I got this jar when I went won the CoverGirl video star contest... and got invited to go to the ELLE Magazine offices...I. had no idea how much it cost then, I was slathering it on my elbows and hands...it makes any part of you that's dry....absolutely amazing!!! Then I found out how much it cost! I should've saved every tiny bit of it for my face! ha ha ha

Next someone gave me this Arbonne Star Jasmine Tubersose lotion....that smells soooooooo good, I wish it was a perfume!!!
my "fountain of youth" secret....I slather this on over my moisturizer at night! ALBA Un-Petroleum Jelly... Rich in fatty acids, coconut oil is anti-microbial, deeply moisturizing and soothing to the skin.
Incanto Shine Perfume....I mix this with my vanilla perfume sometimes to make it more "unique"! ha ha

SUD PACIFIQUE Vanilla Extreme Perfume - my ALL-TIME FAVORITE PERFUME that I've been wearing for years....I love this perfume...and I get asked what I'm wearing all the time! yay it smells like cake! (ha ha..notice how I even have a back-up bottle of it too!)



Mama Mio Boob Tube- bust and neck lifter and firmer...and my boobs need some support after swelling to Dolly Pardon like size while pregnant! And I have the Tummy Rub Cream cream to help with the stretch marks prevention!

and my body odor fighter...
SECRET SCENT EXPRESSIONS DEODERANT I only like the invisible solid one...the gel just feels slimy under my arms...yuck

little others things peeking out in the picture... (can you tell I'm a moisturizing fool! ha ha ha...I love me some lotions!)
ivi Scents - Icing Body Frosting in BIRTHDAY CAKE - this smells so good I want to try to eat it!!! And it is SUPER moisturizing....the only problem with this is that is doesn't come in a big enough jar! ha ha ha...I want buckets of this stuff!!! I love it and the soap too!!!


THE BALM hand lotion from GLOWOLOGY...organic and smells delish!

Dylan's Candy Bar - Candy Butter Cream in Strawberry Licorice - my sister first got me some of this for my birthday...and not only are you super soft...but smell good enough to eat!

Clementine Perfume by Melissa Flagg - this smells like a citrusy grove of California oranges...yummy with the Vanilla lotion...this stuff is super potent...you only need to use a little!

Earth Mama Angel Baby Body Butter - organic, all natural, vegan, cruelty free...and soft and moisturizing!

so that's what's in my "gettin'-ready" drawer...a huge amount of lotions and a mini tube of Colgate...ha ha ha

off to go put some more lotion on (ha ha ha...jsut kidding)...
your vanilla, cake,  star jasmine, and strawberry licorice scented friend Kandee!

I'm surprised you don't have a hu-mongo vat of cocoa butter in there. That stuff is pure magic. It got rid of scars for me, smells like chocolate and moisturizes. Basically all of your drawer in one :)

I love the Arbonne too, and the glowology products. I know so much about boobies swelling as I had my lil boy 8 months ago and I used Mama Mio Boob tube as well. Hugs.

lorintorrey said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE this one!!!! great post kandee:)

hope your day is as beautiful as you are!!!!

Bridget said...

I LOVE the Alba Unpatrolium. It takes just a TINY amount to cover the whole face and leaves it smoother than anything I've ever tried. Then during the day when it's extremely dry out, I put a tiny bit on my finger to use as chapstick!

Samantha said...

I really adore you kandee...Thank you for sharing all the things you use on a daily basis. I love it

missjanet79@yahoo.com said...

Hi Kandee - I've been wanting to send you something to your PO Box address, but I can't seem to find it when you gave it out last year. Can you please post that info or send to me? Thank you!!!!! Love your lil cupcake pics! She's a DOLL!

twilightballet said...

I LOVE incanto shine =) I use it all the time! It's my favorite scent!

Beba said...

Hi Kandee? Do you know Secret ( and other anti prespirants ) deodorants consist aluminum that is very dangerous ingredient causing cancer? It is also not recommended while breastfeeding. Be careful with such a things. My mother in law has lymphoma, anti prespirants were the first things forbiden to use.

jen said...

iam also a new mom, very much sleep deprived.....i can not find a good under eye conceler that works.....i have such dark circles under my eyes........

Hannah said...

I LOVE this entry :) :) No doubt by the end of the week I will have got all of these products!And I'll feel more Kandee-esque than ever haha. Do you use a face wash as well as the Burt's Bee's exfoliator? Loving you as always Kandee. Love to the kiddies too <3 xXxXx

Jessica said...

Please can you do a video on your makeup kit? I know you did kit essentials but I'd like to see how you set it out etc? PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE pretty please! :)

Your whole kit :)

Xxx

Katrina said...

I loved this post! I love 'whats in my' blog posts or videos. Can you do a what's in my shower and a what's in my fridge? Or anything else you can think of haha. I think those would be great.
Best wishes for you and your family

Fun post but i dont know where to get the SUD PACIFIQUE Vanilla Extreme Perfume. When i clicked on the link 2 websites came up but they had very bad ratings. I wouldnt feel comfortable ordering from a sites that have so mayn complaints. Is there a drugstore that carries it or a specific website you purchase it from???

Brittany said...

Do use the ALBA Un-Petroleum Jelly... on your face too? It sounds wonderful! I think I'm going to have to get some :)

Penny Pincher said...

**KANDEE**
Hey doll! :)
So nice to get a peek into your drawer, you have some yummy sounding stuff! ;)

I wanted to tell you in case you didn't know, I know you adore natural and healthy items for you and your babies so I just couldn't NOT say anything in case you weren't aware of the dangers...

Please try and use more natural deodorants without the cancer causing ALUMINUM in them! :(
I know they don't work as well because they don't block your pores up with gunk but they do work pretty well (some of Tom's long lasting ones work great!-I'd go for unscented though)
Also there is something called Clay Dry that helps keep you from sweating and works great! It smells very botanically ;)
Also there is something called Pit Powder by Muddy H2O that works BEAUTIFULLY!!! It wont keep you from sweating but it keeps any smells away!
So I use this when I'm not using Clay Dry since Clay Dry keeps you from sweating.
Your body needs to sweat, sweating is one of the most important ways to keep your body detoxed. ;)

Also, please don't use fluoride toothpaste or drink fluoridated water.
Fluoride is HORRIBLE for you! :(:(:(
It causes so many problems for your body and children can get dental fluorisis from it as well as the health problems.
Do your research on the dangers of fluoride, find out the TRUTH about it~you'll be so glad you did!

I love ya Kandee and just want you and yours happy and healthy! ♥

Penny Pincher said...

OH and I forgot! If you decide on the Pit Powder go sparingly on it.
Don't use much each time and try to alternate between it and another one or two natural deodorants because Pit Powder has been known to cause skin irritation if used a lot because of the baking soda in it.

It RULES but I only use it a couple/few times a week.
I use it and the Clay Dry and also alternate with Tom's unscented long lasting. ;)

Good luck!!! :)

gaellemat said...

MamaMimi said...

Thanks for sharing all your goodies! I have a BAZILILON perfumes that I kind of like, but you just totally inspired me to MIX them! One is cakey and really sweet, and one is sunshiney...and I think the two together would be DIVINE! I think I'll try it today! And I totally think I want that vanilla one! =)

Beata said...

Bre said...

I LOVE that you use and featured mineral oil free products. I love Unpretroleum jelly too! It's a must for dry lips, feet, and hands.

Pamela said...

Hey Kandee
Could you do a quick video or blog on how to get rid of blemishes and what you should do to not look so nasty if you break out!! And any make up tips that wont make your blemish swell 10 gazillion times bigger! And how to care and wash your face properly. I know you have the lemon video or the Microdermabrasion one also. But just quick cheap or organic ways to care for your face when it goes through a "freak out" period. Thanks so much! xoxo

Angie D said...

I LOVE Vanilla too!! My favorite scent! I also love moisterizers, so I will be clicking on your handy links to look this stuff up too! Thank you Kandee! :)

hey, could you tell me what face moisturizers are good, I know you use the un petroleum over your moisturizer which I'll definitely try but I'm 19 and would love to start with a great skin care routine so I can maintain my skin for as long as possible ha ha xx

bloginista said...

Vanilla is one of my favorite scents. I wear "The One" by Dolce & Gabbanna and it some vanilla undertones in it :) So yummy!

The Observer said...

Dear Kandee,

Today at my school in the girl's bathroom I saw postit notes everywhere that say "you're beautiful" "you're gorgous" "Smile!" and things like that and the website operationbeautiful.com at the bottom. It's a movement that spreads beautiful messages through anonomyous postit notes in public places. They're even been featured on OPRAH!!!! I think you should take a look at the site and write a blog on your kandeej site :)
Lots of love
-Cassie

Estrella said...

Very nice:) Thanks for sharing, I really love Vanilla:)

Zozed said...

The last item was vegan AND cruelty free...
I wish you could blog about all the cruelty free products that you use, it'll be great :)

Teann said...

What do you use as your face moisturizer before the un-petroleum stuff?

Thanks Kandee

K said...

Kandee! This is crazy- I read this blog last tuesday, and two days later, received the ARBONNE jasmine tuberose mist spray! I am a consultant for ARBONNE and in my last order, they sent me a surprise bag of items that they DO NOT MAKE ANYMORE! I am new with the company, so I didn't even know there ever was this product!! And then, after seeing it on your blog- surprise- I got it myself. If you want the mist, I'll send it to you! I think there is another consultant looking to get it, but I don't believe it is available anymore- so, if she can't get it to you- let me know!! As for the other Arbonne consultants- YOU ALL ROCK xox
Love you Kandee
xo Kristy

K said...

Another note on aluminum- I am in total agreement with the other ladies who posted about the dangers of this metal. Being in the health and wellness industry, and having a business with Arbonne, a company committed to pure, safe, and beneficial products, I am ALL ABOUT safe cosmetics and personal care products!! Your skin absorbs whatever you put on it within 26 seconds, and it goes directly into your bloodstream. (Think about the way patches administer medications i.e. birth control and nicotine patches). Women especially should be aware of the dangers of aluminum- we shave under our arms, and typically apply deodorant after we shower which leaves our skin even more susceptible to absorbing chemicals! Aluminum in deadorant (especially the extra strenght and clinical formulas) have high levels of this metal and it is toxic for our bodies and does not belong!! Also, I believe there is mineral oil in it as well. Mineral oil totally distrubts your skins ability to do it's job (breathe and detoxify), not to mention that it is a by-product of petroleum and is on the American Cancer Associations list of carcinogenic ingredients. No good!!I know you are super interested in this kind of stuff, so please please get off the aluminum- all of you!! haha!
Wishing you all much health and wellness!!

Devy said...

Now I've finally ordered the un-petroleum jelly, and I'm SO looking forward to trying it out!! :)

Victoria said...

I thought a make up artist would probably be the best person to ask, and since I like your blog so much (just recently started following), decided to ask you:

I have heard that Make up brushes can be cleaned, but am unsure of how to do this in such a way that the brush does not end up all clumped together and falling apart. Is there a secret?

Livia said...

Comptoir Sud Pacifique make some gorgeous perfumes! I own two of theirs - Matin Calin, which is a really vanilla-milky scent, and Vanilla Peach, which smells like it should - peach & vanilla!! And neither of them are in production anymore - but I'd love to try the Vanilla Extreme. Apparently they come in glass bottles now and they're come as an edp as well as an edt, so it lasts longer on the skin.
I'd love to try both the Strawberry Licorice & the birthday cake-scented body butters. They sound yummy!! :)
