May favorites!


Late April and May I purchased a ton of beauty and makeup and spent the entire month trying them out. There were a few products that I really like but there were others that I thought was going to love but I found that I did not like them at all. 
NOW Solutions Coconut Oil- I placed an order on iherb.com and one of the things that I purchased was coconut oil because I have been reading up on all the benefits of it. I'm planning on using it on my hair and for oil pulling. I have been oil pulling for two weeks now and so far I have not seen a huge difference but I love the way my teeth feel after I use it. I place one teaspoon of coconut oil in my mouth, let it melt in my mouth if it is solid, I swish it in my mouth for about 10-15 minutes, spit it out in the wastebasket and brush my teeth & floss. The recommended time is 20 minutes but I feel that its way too long for me so I started with 10 minutes and I'm trying to work my way up to 20.

NOW Solutions Rose Hip Seed Oil- I have been using sweet almond oil since January 2014 as a night-time moisturizer and I purchased Rose Hip Seed Oil to go along with it because this oil is great for skin especially for those who have acne. I also like using this on my body- I just mix a couple of drops with my body lotion. I love using this oil because it leaves my skin looking radiant in the morning. I purchased this on iherb.com as well.

Jordana Best Lash Extreme mascara- This mascara is a cult favorite and I finally decided to try it out to see what all the hype was about. I must admit that I love the way that it volumizes my lashes and I love the size of the brush- it is not too long or big in size so application is not a hassle. I don't have to worry about getting product on my brow bone.

Bella Beauty Makeup Sponge- I am not a fan of makeup sponges because I feel like makeup brushes do a better job at applying makeup plus I don't have to worry about replacing them every few months. I picked this up at TJMAXX for $3.99 one day and I did not have high expectations for this sponge but it won me over. I like how it applies my foundation and concealer; it makes blending so fast and simple. I have actually been using it more than my brushes. I was so shocked! One thing that I don't like about this sponge that one the side of the clear plastic box that it comes in says that it contains a chemical known to the state of California to cause cancer so now I don't think I will continue using it. That's the only downside to this sponge.

E.L.F Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder in "Blushed and Bronzed"- I have been incorporating blush into my everyday makeup now because I like the way the pop of color on my cheeks look like. In the pan it looks very glittery but it doesn't transfer onto my face. It looks like a very natural blush color. I only use the blush as I do not use bronzer to contour. Most bronzers have glitter and are warm toned whereas for contouring you need a cool toned brown to define and slim the face.
 

What are your May favorites?

Love,

    1. You buy it on elf's website, they sales all time so you can probably get it for less. it's really popular because its said to be a dupe of nars orgasm blush and bronzer duo.
