Hello lovlies! I’m back and out of that funk I found myself in all last week – THANK GOD! I missed my regular Sunday posting again >.< so I will be delivering to you something I’ve been dying to do for a few months but haven’t because I wasn’t sure how it would go over. Now that I really just don’t care about what everyone thinks, I’m going for it.
I know it’s already the middle of April, but I really wanted to do my March product favorites and figured better late than never. These products I’m going to be talking about are products that I’ve used all throughout the month of March and LOVED! If you use any of these or try any of them let me know what you think in the comments below!!!
1. CoverGirl’s Ready, Set Gorgeous Fresh Complexion Oil Free Foundation
I love this product! I was introduced to it by Stephanie and Tracy from their YouTube channel, eleventhgorgeous. They were raving about this foundation in a video and they convinced me to go buy it. Now, let me start by saying I am not a foundation girl. Normally, I use Bare Minerals because my skin is very sensitive. I was skeptical because I thought this foundation would give my skin break outs and irritate it. I’m pleased to say this foundation didn’t do any of that and was absolutly beautiful on my skin. The only thing I didn’t like was that I couldn’t test the shade selections in the drugstore, however, I picked shade 110 and it was a perfect match for me. My favorite thing about this foundation is the coverage it gives because it’s not cake-like but it covers very well and also adds a beautiful glow to my face. This product gets five stars from me!
2. NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder
Up until this year, I never did my eyebrows with makeup. I would keep them tweezed but that was it. Again, after watching some YouTube videos, I noticed how many of the gals would fill their eyebrows in. After looking all over the place for a drugstore product that would work with my eyebrows. I stumbled upon the NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder in the shade ECP06 Blonde. It comes with a lighter powder and a darker powder, along with some brow gel, a spoolie brush and a small applicator brush. I use the lighter of the two shades and it really blends well with my root hair color. I never knew the importance of how your eyebrows can pull your entire face together.
3. Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer
So this is a bit embarrassing, but hey, we’re all friends here. I have a few small patches of very tiny spider veins on my thighs and calves and I was on the hunt to try anything to get rid of them. I even called a few places about getting injections. However, after a few rude people on the phone, I decided they weren’t bad enough to go that route. I wound up picking this product up totally by accident because I couldn’t find what I was looking for. After using it just one day, I noticed I wasn’t so pale and it made me ready for the sunshine. If you know me, then you’ll know I am not about the fake tan from tanning booths and would rather get some sun the good-ol’ fashioned way by being outside. I look at this product as preparation for shorts and skirt weather because honestly, my paleness was always something people would make fun of me for. This year, all they will be commenting on is my healthy glow.
4. Vita-K Professional for Spider Veins
If you read the above paragraph, you’ll know why this is here. I bought this to minimize the appearance of my spider veins and I am so impressed with the results so far. After I use this product more, I plan to do a full review on just this product. The product’s directions says to apply it twice daily to the areas where the spider veins are prominent. I haven’t been following these instructions and have been using it once every-other-day so I don’t experience any irritation since I do have sensitive skin. The best thing about that, is that I’m still seeing results. I will recommend this to anyone looking to minimize the appearance of their spider veins.
5. Vaseline Lip Therapy in Creme Brulee
This is a product that I have been using for a long time. During the winter, this SAVED my lips. I put it on every night before bed and I wake up with the softest, most luxurious feeling lips. It also looks nice under lipsticks. Some chapsticks make matte lipsticks look glossy, but I haven’t found that with this product.
6. Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet
I’M IN LOVE WITH THIS PERFUME!!!!!!!!!! This is the perfect perfume for spring or really any time. It’s so luxurious and fabulous – I can’t even describe how it smells with anything other than elegant. The box describes it as this: “A Peony enveloped in velvety notes of White Musks. The caress of a sparkling floral.” It’s just absolutely beautiful. And the bottle is adorable also. So happy I splurged on this item because it was quite expensive at $75 for 50ml, but worth every penny to me.
7. DoTerra Deep Blue Rub
This product was a gift from my mom along with a doTerra oil set. I have been using oils for a long time, especially peppermint for my headaches, and fell in love with this product. It’s a muscle rub infused with the doTerra Deep Blue essential oil. Any time I have any kind of pain or tension I rub this on and let the magic of the oils do their thing. I’ve used so many other muscle rubs over the years, but this one is by far my favorite. I especially love when I put it on a few hours before yoga class because after it wares off and I go to hot yoga, the heat re-activates the rub and it feels great! If you suffer from pain and have tried a bunch of muscle rubs and aren’t happy with them, I recommend you try this product.
