May 2017 - Monthly Favorites!

Here is a look at what I have been loving in May:

Real Techniques Miracle Sculpting Sponge (Finish) ~ $10.49. Dewy Highlight + Contour. Designed to help create shadows or highlight your favorite facial features. Use damp for a dewy glow or dry for a full coverage finish. Ideal for powders, creams, and liquids.

This sponge features:
  • small side for precision highlighting
  • large side for controlled contouring
  • 6 Surfaces to complete your sculpt

I was really impressed with this sponge - it has 6 different edges to cover all areas of the face and get different applications and in to smaller areas. It is just a really precise application. I have never considered not using my Beauty Blender until I tried this sponge! And, real techniques is very affordable! If you are interested in seeing it's application on me, check out my full review here

Eyes by ToGoSpa - Green Tea Eyes ~ $15.00 for 3 sets. Green Tea Eyes - The Energy Drink For Your Face.Taurine and Green Tea Extract promote circulation for that extra tingly stimulation. Excellent for dark circles. 

This past month I certainly have not been getting my regular 9 hours of sleep per night as I was getting pre-baby and it is pretty visible on my face some days! These green tea eye masks are specifically for dark circles! These are great - I used 2 of the 3 eye masks last month after long nights or before an event! (I posted a Mask Wednesday review on these here!)

Weleda Calendula Intensive Skin Recovery Cream ~ $19.99 CAN. Weleda Calendula Intensive Skin Recovery Cream is highly concentrated and calms sensitive skin. It’s formulated with a high percentage of biodynamically grown calendula, handpicked from Weleda's own gardens in Germany. This cream is free of GMOs, synthetic preservatives, fragrances, colorants and raw materials derived from petroleum.

This is a really great cream - I love it for using on my eczema, keratosis pilaris, and stretch marks. It is super calming and is recommended to use after sun exposure and shaving too. This is a really thick cream so it takes a bit to absorb in to the skin but works so well - a little bit goes a long way. I also did a review on this cream - you can check it out here

Rodeo Drive Highlighter by OFRA Cosmetics ~ $35.00. Soak up the summer sun day or night with OFRA's Rodeo Drive Highlighter! This radiant product captures the luxury and glamour of the famous street in sunny California.

This highlighter is crazy bold - the littlest bit goes on and is the perfect universal shade. It is a light gold and the pigmentation is amazing! Love this highlighter - perfect for going in to the Summer months! 

Bioderma Sensibio H2O - Micelle Solution ~ $19.00. A cleansing and make-up removing water that respects the fragility of sensitive skin.

I don't usually repeat my favorite items - once I love them, I keep loving them! But up until this month, I had only every used this really as an eye makeup remover, (which it is my holy grail!) I would maybe once in a while use it all over, but not often enough to see the whole benefits of it as a cleanser! This made my favorites in August 2015. But in May, this was my go-to full face cleanser - I felt  It was so gentle, it calmed my acne and was overall was an amazing cleanser - I can't believe I haven't done this before! I did a review on this a long time ago, you can check it out here
