May Favorites

The Body Shop Body Butter in Almond Milk & Honey: I received this from The Body Shop Almond Milk & Honey Event. It's a very light-weight moisturizer. It's not like their normal body butter where it's thicker in consistency and you have to rub to moisten the product. For that reason, it's good for oily skin individuals. The doctor who created this product also recommend for sensitive skin as well. I'm neither but on the other side with dry skin. Even though it's light-weight, it still moisturizes me and it's light for this spring/summer season. The smell is also very light not like their normal scent where's it's strong. I didn't think I would like the scent but I actually do.

Radical Skincare Skin Perfecting Screen SPF 30: I received this product and it's something I try to use in daily basis. It's really good to protect yourself everyday but I get lazy. This is another thing (I have a lot) that I need to work on. With that said, it's light-weight and protects from inside out. It's also not greasy, doesn't leave a white cast, and it's extremely easy to apply.

Kevyn Aucoin The Eyelash Curler: I bought this and use it every time I wear makeup. I have super straight lashes and need a good curler that curls all my lashes. I haven't had an issue with eyelash curlers that doesn't curl my lashes. It's the outer lashes. The curlers doesn't grab them. For that reason, I have been looking for curlers that have wide band to reach the outsides lashes. This curls the outside, as well as, separate the lashes.

Models Own Lix Matte Liquid Lipstick in Coral Fresh: I received this product and I was blown away! The color is pigmented, extremely opaque. It's easy to apply, and there's no mention about it being transfer-proof but it lasts all day. It lasts longer than a lot of liquid lipsticks that are transfer-proof. The best part even with the grease from the food, it doesn't weaken the formula of the lipstick.

Leaders 7 Wonders Tundra Cranberry Anti-Aging Mask: While shopping at TJ Maxx, I found a box of this particular mask. I already reviewed this product even before purchasing this box and knew how much I loved it. It's one of my favorite masks. My friend who has normal skin said it's too strong for her. For me, my skin loves this product. It's hydrating and I see results right away. I definitely don't regret purchasing it. I just wish I bought more.

May Finished Products
Nature Republic Collagen Dream 70 Emulsion: I received this sample with purchase. This is a great emulsion or should I say serum. It feels similar to the emulsion from Asian sheet masks. Since it came in a small sample container, it's hard to say what is the results long term.

Would repurchase: Yes.

Dr. Jart+ Water Drop Hydrating Moisturizer: This is a deluxe sample I received in my Play! By Sephora September 2016. I first loved the moisturizer. It was hydrating and felt great on the skin. It felt like I was applying water onto the skin and made my skin looked youthful. I don't know why but my skin is more drier than it was during the winter season. This moisturizer wasn't doing much this last several weeks.

Would repurchase: No.

The Body Shop Body Butter in Frosted Berries: I received this as a gift from a friend. She knows I love the body butter from The Body Shop. It's thick and moisturizing. It might be too thick for oily skin individuals but for myself, it's perfect. It's the first moisturizer I reach for during the winter season. It makes me feel good and I get no static when I wear this. Not only that, this smells great. It's on the fruity side which is my type of scent.

Would repurchase: Yes!

Victoria's Secret Ultra Moisturizing Hand and Body Cream in Mango Temptation: I bought several, I cannot remember if I bought six or seven, while it was on sale. The last time I used Victoria's Secret lotion was back in college. My co-worker said it's the only lotion she uses and it's changed. In her opinion, it's really good. I decided to give it a try and this is fifth/sixth lotion from my purchase. I wasn't a fan back then and I'm still not a fan now. It's not moisturizing for my dry skin. This is good for normal to oily skin. I didn't like the smell as well. It's not fruity or floral. I'm not too sure what it smells like. It's also not strong and doesn't last long. I prefer my body lotions to be strong and long lasting.

Would repurchase: No!

RGB Nail Color Remover: This was one of the products in my Lucky Bag 2017 from Beautylish. I'm glad I got to try this product out. I love trying new brands, as well as, products I didn't know existed. With that said, I doubt I would purchase this product. It's on the healthier side but it takes a lot of work to remove the polish. It's a lot of rubbing, time consuming, and there's oil all over the fingers. I'm just lazy and want the easiest method.

Would repurchase: No.

London Brush Company Brush Shampoo in Lemon: I bought this and have to say it's the best brush soap I have used so far. It's easy to use and cleans my brushes well. It also cleans my beauty sponges without the hard work.

Would repurchase: Yes.
