April 2017 Favorites
I wasn’t particularly busy this month, but it sure did zoom by. I can’t believe a third of the year has already passed! I haven’t done a Favorites post in a long while, so here are the things I’ve been loving for the past few months.
The Body Shop Vitamin C Microdermabrasion • A skin issue that I’ve been working on recently is improving dull skin. Lately, my face has been feeling rough and I’ve noticed that my usual scrubs and peel-off masks don’t leave my skin as smooth as I’d like. This microdermabrasion product from The Body Shop seriously changed the skincare game for me! The tiny exfoliants are gentle, yet effective, on the skin. As I was using it, it almost felt like nothing was happening, but I could tell my skin was tenfolds smoother and softer once I rinsed it off. It didn’t leave my skin feeling dry at all, which caught me by surprise considering this product did such a good job at sloughing off all of my dead skin cells. If you’re wanting to improve the texture of your skin, definitely give this a try!
Bonvivant Botanical Pure Rose Toner • This is a hydrating toner that consists of two parts– rose water and rose oil. If you love anything rose-scented, this toner is going to be a dream for you! Since I have oily/combination skin, I only use this at night. It’s especially soothing to use after the microdermabrasion scrub! On the Memebox website (where I purchased from), they say you can use the rose oil as an oil cleanser or serum by keeping the bottle unshaken and use as necessary. I haven’t used this product that way, but it’s nice to know how versatile it is!
Skin79 Rose Waterfull Mask • If you saw one of my previous #MASKMONDAY posts, you already know how much I love this mask (check it out here if you haven’t already). To put it shortly, it’s a super hydrating sleeping mask that you apply at the very end of your skincare routine and wash off the next morning. If you’re experiencing dry skin (to the point where it’s cracked and bleeding), this will bring your skin back to normal in just a night’s sleep.
Eucalyptus Candles • Eucalyptus is one of my favorite scents. It instantly puts me at peace and I like that it’s a scent that works anytime of day. I love the Eucalyptus Spearmint candle from Bath & Body Works, but when I can’t get them on sale, I’ve found that T.J. Maxx and Marshall’s carry affordable candles as well! Who else is a candle lover?
The People vs OJ • I feel like I’m late on watching this series, but I finally got around to watching it and finished it early last month. If you haven’t heard about it, it’s a series based on the book The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson, which goes into what happened behind the scenes of the O.J. Simpson trial. I was really little when all of that was going on, so to watch the whole experience as an adult really made it clear to me that it was more than just a murder trial. I liked all the topics the show touched on and I also really loved how perfectly casted the show was. If you haven’t seen the show, you can catch it on Netflix!
What were some of your favorite things last month? I hope you all had a wonderful month and I’ll see you in my next post!
