May Favorites

Somewhere in the middle of trying to remodel our new house/workspace & pack up all our belongings, I have lost an entire month. If you find it, I would like to have it back!

Here are a few of my favorite things from the month of May!

may favoritesClarisonic. Of course. I won’t spend much time on this except to say I love it and if you are thinking of trying it, read here for my review.

NYX Brow Pencils. These may be one of the most overlooked items in my kit. They are one thing, however, that I use everyday without fail! So similar to the MAC eyebrow pencils it’s not even worth a debate!

Hautelook. I have found so many good deals on here! In fact, the first piece of official furniture we purchased for our new place came from here. You can find just about everything at great prices here. In fact, I would strongly recommend hopping over there right now as they have Crown Brushes up today!

Sibu Facial Soap. This is a great simple cleansing bar. It smells clean and lovely, it contains powerful ingredients like sea buckthorn and it’s inexpensive. I like to use this cleanser on days when my skin is feeling a bit oily. It takes care of oil without making your skin feel TOO dry.

MAC Pro Longwear Foundation. I’ve talked about this foundation before. My skin has the tiniest bit of tan to it so I’ve had to switch back to this foundation because it’s my closest match. I’ve totally fallen in love with it again!

The Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Boost. This is a bit like a serum/primer and works perfectly when applied just under makeup. It gives skin a bit of an evening-out and feels very similar to Smashbox Primer with the added benefit of vitamin C.

The Body Shop Strawberry Body Polish. I’ve been a bit on a Body Shop kick recently. They’ve had some amazing offers and I’ve found some products that I actually really like. This body scrub is actually quite gentle and smells like a strawberry fruit roll up! I have seriously considered eating it!

Nature Valley Granola Thins. Yes, these are a random addition to my list. They have, however, been a constant go to snack when I haven’t had time to eat during these busy few weeks. They are so tasty and quite satisfying. The peanut butter flavor is my favorite!

Boyfriend eau du parfume. Very often I prefer a man’s fragrance over a floral scented girlie one. This perfume is the perfect blend of both. I bought the roller version so I can have it in my handbag at all times.

Lorac Box Office Hit Palette. This palette is one I would highly recommend for those who like to have all your favorites in one place. Usually, in palettes like this, there is a dud (usually bad cheek or lip colors). I have to say that the Lorac palette has some of the nicest lip colors, plus you get both a black and a brown eye pencil along with some really beautiful eyeshadows!

That’s all for the moment! Let me know what you’re favorites this month have been!
