May Favorites

It's been a while since I did a monthly favorites post.  It hasn't been because a lack of products that I am enjoying.  In fact, I have been using a good deal of products that I really like.

Bioderma - This cleansing water cleans, removes make-up and soothes the skin.  I usually use it as a make-up remover/precleanse before I wash my face, however it can also be used as a stand alone cleanser.  And the non-rinse formula makes it perfect for those mornings that you are in a rush, or those late nights when you just need to wash your face and go to bed.

Bioderma is not available in the US, but you can find it on Amazon.  I bought it through this seller.

beautyblender blendercleanser - I can not live without my beautyblender.  It is the only tool I have been using to apply my foundation, but it gets FILTY.  I usually just use brush cleaner to clean my blender.  I had received a sample of the blendercleanser a while back in my birchbox and really liked it and found that it cleaned by blender better than brush cleaner.  I just never got around to buying it.  I then received a bottle (along with a replacement beautyblender) in my PopSugar Must Have May box and my beautyblenders have never been cleaner!

Pink Chiffon Hand Cream, Bath & Body Works - This smells amazing!  I have had the Pink Chiffon Triple Moisture Body Cream for a while now and just had to buy the hand cream when I spotted it at the store.   I only wish this scent came in a candle.

LypSyl Intense Protection LypMoisturizer - My lips tend to get really dry.  I was using EOS lip balms, but they seemed to make my lips even drier.  LypSyl is a great when my lips need instant moisture.

A Great Kisser Lip Moisture Balm, Soap & Glory - This keeps my lips soft and adds a pretty coral gloss.  

Microplane Foot File - This is hands down the best foot file I have ever used to file off dead skin. Microplane started as a wood working tool, until a Canadian housewife started using her husband's Microplane in the kitchen.  Now, Microplane uses that same quality steel to create a line of foot files. 

Concealer Stick, NYX - This glides on smoothly, is very creamy, is waterproof, and lasts longer than most high end concealers that I have tried.

Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder - There is a reason why this product has been a cult classic favorite since it hit the market in 1935.  It keeps my face shine free for at least 10 hours.  I use just a tiny amount to set just the spots where I use concealer because it can be a little too full coverage/cakey but my make-up is not going anywhere under this.

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder - For the areas that I don't use the Coty Airspun Powder, this is a great setting powder. 

Watt's Up, Benefit - This is just a deluxe sample size that I received from Sephora as my birthday gift this year.  The smaller size is perfect to highlight my brow bone.  

Garnier BB Cream & Boscia BB Cream - I have mentioned both of these BB Creams in the past as they are my favorites.  I have be using both a lot on the weekends during the days when I am running errands or even just out and about.  I get a really nice finish when I layer them, using the boscia cream on the bottom and then applying a small amount of the garner cream on top.

  1. I think I've said this on your blog before, but I am in love with Watt's Up from Benefit, I have it in the small size and got it for the bday gift from Sephora and I'm planning to buy the large size when I'm out. It's the perfect way to brighten eyes and eyebrows!
