It's so hard to believe that June is already here! This year has been flying by so quickly.
So let's get to chatting about my favorites beauty goodies for the month of May!
With summer being upon us, I decided that it was time for a little bit of self tanner. I am a huge advocate of sunscreen, and bug everyone to use it. As a fair gal, SPF is always part of my beauty routine. However, my level of paleness does not look great in summer dresses and shorts; so Malibu Tan Hemp Golden Tan comes in to play! This self tanner moisturizer is amazing. It makes my skin feel so nice, and adds just a touch of a glow without all the streakiness that traditional self tanners can. The scent can be described as a light floral banana smell. This lotion has a very minimal self tanner odor as well which is a plus. I'd say this self tanner is best suited for the porcelain to fair skin tones. To up the bronzy glow factor I have been loving the Elf Baked Bronzer in Pinktastic too! It gives an amazing highlight to the cheek bone, cupids bow and nose. Just love it for summer! Both items can be purchased at Walmart.
Can we just take a moment to talk about how darned pretty this lipstick color is?? This was my first Anastasia of Beverly Hills lipstick. This is one of their liquid lipsticks in the color Craft from the Summer Collection. I also grabbed one of their shadow singles in Hot Chocolate, as I'm always looking for a great matte dark brown shadow for my make up looks. This shadow is so pigmented and blends like a dream! These can be purchased at Macy's or the Anastasia of Beverly Hills Website.
Let's talk about that Charcoal and Black Sugar Polishing Mask by Freeman, shall we? I know, I know, a hilarious face mask picture. But let me tell you, this stuff is NICE, even for a drug store beauty product.
I usually apply it to my face when dry, it instantly begins to warm my skin, I leave it on about 5-7 minutes, while avoiding my eye area. Then before rinsing it off, I add a bit of warm water and gently scrub my face with it. Rinse it off thoroughly, and voila! Nice soft skin. In my experience, it did break me out slightly in the beginning of use, but after 2 times of use all of that subsided and now I am using it about once a week with no other issues. I found this mask at Walmart in the skin care section.
Here's an example of the Malibu Tan, Hemp Glow. As shown, this is one application. I do not typically use it on my face, but match my foundation to my neck.
That wraps up this month's beauty finds! Have you tried any of these products, or have any favorites that you want to share with me? Drop me a quick line below!
