Beauty Favorites May 2016

  1. Neutrogena Healthy Skin Boosters Gel Cleanser

    I love this stuff! I got a sample of it a few months back and fell in love with it. I’m usually pretty picky about my cleansers, because I have fairly sensitive combination skin, but this one is awesome (and affordable!).

    It makes my skin feel really clean, but not that soapy “squeaky clean” if you know what I mean, and seems to be the perfect combination for my oily spots and dry spots. You should definitely check this one out if you haven’t already!

  2. Maison Martin Margiela ‘Replica’ Beach Walk perfume

    My favorite perfume in the whole world and it’s just about time to break it out again now that summer’s almost here! I think this might be the perfume I wear on my wedding day. It’s not necessarily a typical “wedding day” perfume, but I just love it so much!

  3. Anastasia Beverly Hills “Crush” Liquid Lipstick

    Finally!!! After literally an entire year of searching, I finally found THE PERFECT WEDDING DAY LIPSTICK!

    My goal was to find a romantic nude-pink and finally I found one that I’m totally in love with! I must have bought about 20 pinky nude liquid lipsticks trying to fine “the one,” but they were all too light, too dark, too purple, too nude. Ugh! But I’m so glad to say that, just in the nick of time, Anastasia Beverly Hills’ spring collection came to the rescue!

    I definitely recommend this shade if you’re looking for a classic “my lips, but better” color to add a little something extra to your look. Brent prefers natural makeup, so I really wanted to go for a more muted shade that was still flattering and pretty. This is definitely it!

  4. Olay ProX Advanced Cleaning System with Facial Brush

    For years, I’ve been dying to get one of those Clarisonic Mia face brushes, but never indulged myself because of the hefty price tag. Last month, totally on a whim, I decided to try out a cheaper alternative from Olay that I surprisingly have been loving!

    I’ve used it about 20 times and, honestly, it does a really good job. I wouldn’t say that it’s amazing at actually removing makeup (if you’re like me and apply a setting powder and a setting spray!), but as long as you do a quick run with a makeup wipe before using this brush, it’s great!

    The cleanser that it comes with was totally a throwaway in my opinion. I actually use the Neutrogena cleanser (mentioned above) with it every time and I just love the combination! It really makes me feel like I’m getting my skin clean, and it always leaves me feeling super refreshed. I’ve also noticed a big decrease in random pimples on my face, so that’s another plus!
