Something to Watch Next Time You’re Netflixin’: “The Diplomat” | Some Beauty Things I Bought Recently From CVS

She’s kinda grumpy, and I love it.

I recently binged watched “The Diplomat,” a fast-paced political thriller on Netflix starring Keri Russell as Katherine Wyler, an American ambassador handling an international crisis.

Right after I finished the first season, I watched it again – partly because the story’s really that good, and partly because the dialogue comes at you so quickly the first time around it’s hard to wrap your head around all the details.

I also find it refreshing to see characters who are ladies with big jobs who don’t appear overly polished. Katherine’s character regularly looks like she’s too busy with work to bother running a brush through her hair, and I can appreciate that.

Put it on your list if you’re into dramas!

Not related to Netflixing at all, but I finally used my 30% off coupon at CVS to buy a couple beauty-related things I’ve been wanting to try.

The first is this massive bottle of Cleansing Oil by Bioderma for dry, sensitive skin.

Latest treasure from CVS!

I use it as a first cleanse on my body to remove waterproof sunscreen by rubbing it onto dry skin before getting in the shower. The bottle says that you can also use it on your face, too, which I’m kinda stoked about because I’m all for not having to buy a separate cleansing oil to remove makeup. It has a delicate scent that’s vaguely floral which I don’t hate.

I also purchased an Unflavored Collagen Protein Powder by Vital Proteins. It’s supposed to “help support” (whatever that means) hair, skin, nails, bones and joints, but I mainly bought it because I figured I could use it to sneak more protein into my day.

I use two tablespoons, which has about 9g, in my morning coffee to boost my protein intake at breakfast. I like that it doesn’t mess with the texture or flavor of my drink and that it’s one less egg I need to eat in the morning, LOL! Jury’s out on whether it makes a difference with anything else, though. If helps me with my hair (I feel like it’s so much thinner now that I’m in my 40s), I’ll take it.

Hope your Wednesday is going well!

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
