Hey everyone, happy March! I thought it would be fun to start a new series on the blog highlighting my favourite products of the month. These will be my most used, newly discovered, (or rediscovered!), beauty and makeup products of each month. I might even throw in some cute fashion finds, great books or yummy food items from time to time. So without further ado, and only a few days late, (#momlife), here are my favourite products from the month of February…First on the list are these super hydrating Face Masks by Karuna. Sheet masks have been all the rage lately with every beauty brand coming out with their own version of one. I love these ones especially because they’re made from 100% natural fiber, drenched in hyaluronic acid, and peptides, and the best part? They’re only $10 each! So sit back with a sheet mask on, relax and watch your favourite Netflix series. By the time you’re done, your face will feel as smooth as a baby’s bottom. My idea of a good night!
The next favourite of the month are these 3 in 1 Facial Towelettes from The Honest Company. I don’t often use cleansing wipes, but this month we had a mini reno at home and being without plumbing for a few days these wipes came in very handy! They aren’t drying to the skin, and remove all traces of makeup including around the eyes. They contain olive oil, aloe and chamomile are so gentle I’ve even used them on my baby girl. Now I’m hooked and will be throwing a pack into my diaper bag, travel bag and yoga bag!
OK, can we talk about this next product for a moment?! Prep Rally by Drybar was probably one of my best beauty finds this month! The first time I used it I fell in love with the scent and it’s performance didn’t disappoint either! It’s basically a leave-in conditioner and heat protector all in one. It contains Biotin and B12 which means it’s perfect for the dry winter weather we’ve had (goodbye static hair!), and will also come in handy during the summer months or on vacation because of it’s UV protection. Trust me, this one is a MUST-HAVE!
This next item was a bit of a splurge but in the end I’m SO happy I finally purchased it. My hands have been ROUGH this winter, with the cold dry winter and constantly washing my hands with a baby at home, my hands needed some TLC. After seeing the Aesop Hand Balm all over social media, I finally pulled the trigger and bought one. Now I understand what all the hype is about. Soooo luxurious feeling, not greasy, lightly scented (no old lady scent here), and super moisturizing. Not to mention this tube will last you a good few months at least. Do yourself a favour and just get one! You can thank me later.
I really lucked out this month with lip products! I had no expectations with this Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask, other than loving the name of the shade (Champagne – duh!). Well, OMG this stuff is amazing!!! It’s 99% natural, full of antioxidants including the powerhouse Resveratrol, jojoba and organic agave nectar, OH and it tastes deliciious!!! It hydrates FOR DAYS!!!! Plus it leaves just a hint of shimmering pink colour behind. I have used it everyday since I purchased it and will likely pick up another one for on-the-go.
The second lip product is the new Charlotte Tilbury Revolutionary Matte Lipstick in PillowTalk. Just as good as her infamous lipliner of the same name, this lipstick works on every skintone, giving that YLBB (your lips but better) look. It’s called a Modern-Matte finish which means it isn’t a dry formulation (nothing worse than cracked matte lips in the winter). This really is the perfect nudey-pink hue that’s wearable everyday.
The last favourite of the month is not a new product, but a new discovery found in the back of my makeup drawer. It’s the Highlighting Duo pencil from Anastasia. This thing has literally given me life this month. With both a matte and shimmer side, it’s perfect to highlight the brow-bone and inner corner of the eyes in a flash. No brushes needed, no messy powder or liquid, just a quick swipe and blend with your fingertip. It makes me look like I’ve had a full nights rest (NOT!) and brightens up the entire eye area. I don’t know where this magic pencil was hiding but I’m so glad I found it. It’s a new mamas secret weapon!
So that rounds up this month’s list of favourites. Hope you enjoyed it and found something new to try out for yourself!
