Before I even begin I want to say that my March Favorites are still my favorites in April, so take a look at that post if you want to be enabled even further. The roundup I’m sharing today consists of products I discovered or re-discovered in April, so this is more of an addition to my March list rather than a replacement. I suppose that explains why there are fewer products, too 🙂
Finishing up skincare I love is my ultimate goal, because as a blogger I tend to neglect my favorites in lieu of testing the newest products I receive from companies. In April I discovered a new drugstore must have as well as re-discovered a hand cream that I adore, and yet it was found in the very back of one of my IKEA ALEX drawers.
Words cannot describe how in love I am with the new PIXI Hydrating Milky Mist [$15, available here] right now. It was released very recently as addition to the brand’s existing lineup of beauty sprays [Glow Mist and Makeup Fixing Mist]. This mist feels like a liquid lotion that hydrates and refreshes the skin without making it all sticky – a perfect solution for very hot days when a moisturizer is just too much. The consistency reminds me of a much more expensive Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist, which I like for the same reasons. Full review coming soon!
I purchased La Mer The Hand Treatment [$85, available here] on a friend’s recommendation and didn’t regret that purchase one bit. It’s pricey no doubt, but every time I use it my hands simply look amazing and feel oh so soft. Honestly, I don’t feel an ounce of guilt for buying expensive beauty products! While many of my friends spend their tax return on designer clothes, shoes, and bags, I prefer to use mine on skincare and makeup, because they make me just as happy 🙂
MAC Otherearthly Mineralize Skinfinish [$32, available here] was the standout in the Future MAC collection, and I just had to have it. The finish is absolutely gorgeous! I love that I can customize the final shade to my liking and make it look more bronzey or more pink depending on the look I’m going for. Review coming soon!
I shared my love for Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup [$40, available here] a couple days ago, and I want to bring it up again. This foundation is amazing! I love how weightless and airy is feels on the skin, and it really does stay all day.
One day I was looking for a bronzer to use and stumbled upon Vita Liberata Trystal Self Tanning Bronzing Minerals [$55, available here]. I remember using it briefly and then putting it away, creating an unintentional out of sight – out of mind situation. Today it’s sitting proudly on my vanity table, reminding me to use it daily. The finish looks incredibly natural even on fair skin!
Only one haircare product to share with you this month, but it’s a good one! How many of you use scalp exfoliators? I remember using and loving one from Aveda, and now Madam C. J. Walker Beauty Culture Wonderful Scalp Exfoliator [$32, available here] is my new favorite. It makes the scalp feel fresh, giving extra volume to the roots. It almost feels like opening all windows in a stuffy room.
