March // Favorite Little Things
March was an extremely busy month for me work wise and it went by in a flash. This month was really about a lot of simple products for me - not very much beauty wise but I emphasized more on skincare type products.
As this month was busy at work, I wanted to use some products that would be kind to my skin to avoid any stressful outbreaks. I recently picked up the Boscia Little Black Book set, as I had tried some Boscia face masks and loved them. I thought this would b a good way to try some deluxe sized samples of a brand that I've been loving. I've been using the Detoxifying Black Cleanser and Revitalizing Black Hydration Gel to sooth and brighten my skin. I'm prone to pink cheeks and after using these for the past few weeks I can definitely notice that my skin has calmed and soothed itself. The cleanser warms up as you massage this into your skin which gives a nice deep clean feel without the rough abrasion of an exfoliator. The gel is hydrating and does not leave any oily residue, over time it is expected to brighten, clarify, and minimize the appearance of pores over time.
This Lorac Eye Primer came with an eye makeup palette I bought and it is wonderful. It's a lighter consistency than the Urban Decay eye shadow primer but it does a wonderful job of keeping my cat eye in place all day - even through a one hour pure barre workout. Now if that isn't amazing I don't know what is.
I've seen photos of Aesop products just about everywhere on blogs, Instagram, and the Internet in general, and my cracked hands and the lotion junkie inside of me was looking to get my hands on some of this highly spoken about the Resurrection Aramotique Hand Balm. I took the bite late last month and made the purchase - and good thing as this month has been warm with frequent 80+ days, and my hands were cracking and dried. I love the formulation of this lotion as it is extremely moisturizing without being overly oily. The smell is lovely and isn't bad in an overwhelming way. My coworkers at work could smell my lotion when they walked by and commented about how lovely and fresh it smelled!
L-R // Twig, Groundwork
Makeup wise was pretty simple. I pulled out MAC's Paint Pot in Groundwork as it is a great neutral base, adds some depth to my eyes and is great for those early get-out-the-door fast days. I usually like to layer my paint pots over primer just to ensure that they don't crease or get oily throughout the day. MAC's Twig frequented my lips quite often as it is a great neutral, everyday color. The 90's kid in me is still loving it and it's perfect, especially as we are now in Spring. Twig and Groundwork look especially lovely when paired together.
Here's to a fun and exciting April! I'll be going to Coachella (Weekend 1!) for my second time and am extremely excited to see some amazing artists and take a much needed break from work with some of my dearest friends.
I would love to know some things you've loved in March or events you are looking forward to in April!
