Current Favorites | April-May

I wanted to share with you a few products that I have been loving lately. So here they are:

 

I have recently switched up my skin care routine and have been very happy with the outcome. I have sensitive-combination skin and wasn’t happy with what I was using before, so did my research and came across these two products.

Whether it was my friends or people on the internet, everyone seemed to be obsessing with Philosophy’s Purity 3-in-1 Cleanser. Since picking up this product I have been loving how fresh and clean my face feels after each use and have noticed how much my skin has cleared up. Other than the occasional “time of the month” break-out, the texture on my forehead has disappeared and I haven’t had many extra blemishes.

I’ve always had bad experiences with face moisturizers. I found they would always break me out, add texture to my face and/or cause my face to become too oily. That being said, since I have been using the First Aid Beauty’s Repair Cream I have had nothing but a good experience. It has helped out my dry patches and hasn’t broken me out, knock on wood.

Being a huge fan of Jen Atkin, celebrity hairstylist, I have wanted to try some products from her professional hair care line, Ouai.

These two products have given my hair life. I have been on the hunt for a hair product to give my flat hair volume without the dirty texture that most dry shampoo do. After some research, I came across the Dry Shampoo Foam. At first, I didn’t like the idea of putting a mousse in my dry hair but so i’m glad I did. This product gives my hair a nice lift without it feeling dirty and dries up any oils that I might have after a day… or two… Which is exactly what I wanted!

As for the Texturizing Hair Spray, I am so happy I came across this product in the Sephora line-up. Literally. I was in line one day waiting to purchase some items and came across the travel size Texturizing Hair Spray, sprayed a little in my left over curls from that day and right away knew it was a product I wanted. I don’t usually use hairspray in my hair but I love the way this product adds texture and holds my hair throughout the day.

I feel like everyone and their mother owns this next product, but I finally caved and purchased it.

I’ve been admiring the berry-neutral tones the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance eye shadow palette has and am surprised I hadn’t bought it sooner. I love how buttery and smooth the eye shadows are and how well they blend out. Not to mention how pigmented it is! Very pleased with this palette and happy I finally found the perfect pink eye shadows.

Last but not least! My all-time favorite foundation.

I have re-purchased this foundation multiple times, so it’s safe to say that the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation is my favorite. I’ve been back to wearing it almost every day. I love how long lasting this foundation is. It can last through a long day at work, a night out or a hot summer day. It’s light weight on the skin, full coverage and not drying. Love, love, love it!
