March Favorites!

LUSH Sex Bomb ($6.65)

-This bath bomb fizzes and makes amazing bubbles in the tub. Jasmine and clary sage take your senses to a sensual, exotic escape. It smells like a sultry sweet tart in my opinion.

BLISS Fabulous Foaming Face Wash ($9-$38 depending on  size)

-By far one of my favorite cleansers. It as a sweet bubble gum like scent. It’s primary ingredient is rose hips. It has gentle exfoliating beads and removes makeup very well also. I also want to add I have very sensitive skin, so sensitive to the point that I break out in hives if I use most products. This doesn’t make me breakout and it cleans my face so well without leaving a tight, soap residue. You can get it on bliss’s website , Ulta and Sephora.

Rembrandt Whitening Strips ($22.99)
My sister got me hooked on these. They dissolve which is great and they don’t make your teeth hurt at all. The best part? They make your teeth look amazingly white. Love, love, love these! Highly recommended!
Oscar Blandi Pronto Texture and Volume Spray ($25)
I discovered this gem at a photo shoot. My makeup artist used it on me to volumize my hair that was quickly going flat. WOW. I saw my hair and it looked like sexy bed head. The smell was a heavier, natural smell, but after a few seconds I realized how much I actually liked it. The photographer even commented on how amazing it smelled. If you need some boost to your hair, pick up this puppy.
Clinique All About Eyes Rich ($30)
-This is by far the best eye cream I’ve ever used. I have dark circles and it’s very important for me to use something to help with that. This cream helps lighten and reduce puffiness under the eye area. It’s also great for sensitive skin. I also apply it before makeup and it makes concealer go on like a dream.
Brow Bar to Go by Whitening Lightening ($28)
This is such a versatile product. You can use the colors to highlight the brow bone, use as a transition color for the crease and of course for your brows. I love the colors and how the formula applies.
Urban Decay Good Karma Optical Blurring Brush ($25)
-What to say about this brush? It perfect blends in my foundation. I look like I’m airbrushed! Such a staple for me in my makeup routine!
Rimmel Scandal Eyes Eyeliner ($4.49)
-I use the black scandal eyes liner and it’s such a gorgeous dark black color. This liner is also perfect for the waterline because it actually holds the color. It’s affordable and is very comparable to the Urban Decay’s 24/7 eyeliner and Stila’s kajel liner.
Herbal Essences Drama Clean Clarifying Shampoo ($4.49)
-I believe the Drama Clean has recently been phased out and it’s now called Tea Lightfully Clean shampoo now. I know you can still get the Drama Clean online as well as some Targets and select stores. Essentially it’s just a clarifying shampoo (a weekly shampoo that gets the buildup out of hair). It smells like subtle sweet pineapple/green apple. And it works wonderfully. Did I mention it’s cheap?
Diorshow Iconic Mascara by Dior ($28.50)
-I’m not one to spend tons of money on mascara because I like drugstore ones so much and you have to toss them every 3-4 months so what’s the point of spending money and throwing it away? Well I had leftover money on a Macy’s gift card and had no clue what I wanted so I decided to splurge on this mascara. It’s a wonderful mascara with a silicone brush. It lengthens and volumizes lashes without clumps. Love it!
Stella by Stella McCartney perfume ($20-$90 depending on size)
-I got this in a sample bag and it’s just lovely. The main notes are rose, peony flower, mandarin, rose absolute and my favorite…amber. Normally I don’t like a lot of floral scents, but this one is so different. It’s subtlety sweet, romantic and mature. When I wear it I feel like it’s a beautiful summer day.
Nivea CoQ10 Body Lotion ($10)
-My mom has used this stuff forever, so naturally I liked it when I was younger because it reminded me of my mom. I recently bought it and as an adult, I still love the smell and love how soft my skin feels after using it. The best way I can describe the scent is like an expensive face cream smell. It may not be the ideal smell to most, but I know a lot of people enjoy the smell as I do. It’s just a very luxurious body emulsion without the luxury price tag.
Bath & Body Works Pure Paradise Lotion ($5-$12.50 depending on the size)
-I love to keep this in my purse. It’s not for severely dry hands, but it’s a nice tropical smelling lotion to refresh your hands during the day. It’s like my very own island escape during a cold, snowy day.
Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation ($45)
-Wowzers. Holy grail foundation status. The foundation comes out like a thick whipped lotion and it applies beautifully. I use my Urban Decay Good Karma brush and buff the foundation in using a circular motion. It provides amazing coverage, sometimes I find that I don’t even need concealer when using it. And it doesn’t budge during the day which is very important. It is pricey, but a little bit goes a long way. And this is also a great foundation for brides, it photographs brilliantly and also does not contain SPF (so flash photography won’t create a flash or “white face”).
Bath & Body Works Mahogany Teakwood Candle $20
-This is my favorite candle!!! It smells like Abercrombie Fierce cologne (aka when you walk into Abercrombie minus the obnoxiously strong smell).
Origins Modern Friction Scrub ($39.50)
-This stuff is a difference maker! You use your facial cleanser first, then the scrub. It makes your skin unbelievably smooth while it also brightens your complexion. This is one of the few products I’ve used that I’ve noticed a difference right away. I use this 2X a week to keep my skin young and glowing.
Clinique Youth Surge Night Cream ($52)
-This night cream helps to fight the signs of aging.Obviously I’m in my 20s, but it’s never too early to take care of your skin. It has Sirtuin technology to help intensify skin’s nature repair process. I love the way my skin feels in the morning after using it.
Bath and Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom Hand Sanitizer ($1.50)
-One of my favorite B&B scents. Perfect to have in your purse for on the go!
AIM toothpaste($.99)
-It’s fresh, it’s cheap, it’s AIM!
ELF Pink Passion Blush ($3)
-This blush is comparable to MAC’s discontinued “Pink Swoon”. SO pretty. And only $3! Available online or Target.
-Soap and Glory’s The Righteous Butter ($6-$22 depending on size)
-This creamy body butter is moisturizing and smells very similar to Miss Dior perfume. I love using it after a hot shower, I feel like royalty. Treat yourself to this “righteous” butter!
