April 2015 Favorites

Another month has come and gone, seriously - as I age, I feel like time flies by faster and faster. Crazy... does anyone else feel the same? With Spring approaching it was time for me to switch up my skincare. In the winter time and colder months, my skin gets super dry and now it's starting to become oily/combo again.

My favorite face wash in the warmer months is the Bliss - Foaming Face Wash. It has a light fruity scent, is oil-free and is a gel-like formula with gentle exfoliating bits inside, gentle enough to be used on a daily basis.

I used to use the Aveda Rosemary Mint Shampoo a few years ago, and I can't remember the reason why I stopped. It's perfect for my thin hair, it adds volume while cleaning out the gunk. I love the mint component of this shampoo, it energizes you and leaves a slight tingle to your scalp.

At the One of a Kind Show, I picked up the LoveFresh - Guava Hand Lotion . For those who know me, know that I am really picky with scents. I can't stand the Bath and Body stuff, or the Body Shop fragrances because they are way too strong and artificial. Once in a blue moon, I'm lucky enough to find something to my liking at BBW, but normally I stay away from them.... Anyways, back to this hand lotion. It is paraben and petroleum free - meaning, NO greasiness. It is rich and super absorbent, and leaves your hands feeling baby smooth. I just looked at the ingredients, and there's Kimchi in it! HOW FUN! however, it does not smell like it at all.. lol.. they only use a component of it as a preservative. I can lather this stuff on, and it doesn't irritate my sensitive hands - I have slight eczema on my knuckles. I highly suggest it. Their Vanilla Bean smells divine as well, however a tad too sweet to my liking. This one is perfection!

The next few items I have mentioned before are my favorites, and they continue to be my recurring favorites - Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, NailKale Superfood Base Coat and a Limited Edition Chanel Polish - Eastern Light.

I bit the bullet and bought 3 of the Makeup Forever Artist Shadows - I decided to get all matte shades, just so that I can create a matte look or use them to buff out any shadows in the crease. I love them, perfectly pigmented and soft like butter but there's no fallout.

Lastly, the Benefit Ultra Plush Lipgloss  is the perfect consistency, not sticky but moisturizing. It gives you a light tint of colour and it smells and tastes like CANDY.. mmm...

What are some of your monthly favorites? Please share! Until next time, XO - M.
