February Favourites

February Beauty Faves

Physicians Formula: Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Blush in shade Rose. This paraben-free, hypoallergenic blush is highly pigmented & long lasting which is perfect for those long work days.  I find the packaging a little teen-like looking but I love the product so that's what counts! Claims to have "Happy Boost Blend" to promote happy feelings, not sure about that but am sure about the great shade for flushed, healthy radiant cheeks!

Neal's Yard Remedies Power Berry Facial Wash Cleanser
Oh what a find this product was at Winners!! Being a fan of Neal's Yard but not the price, I've been wanting to try this cleanser which has ingredients such as acai, wild rose hip, bilberry and more. Very gentle, doesn't strip my combination skin type, not the best for eye makeup remover so seperate product needed. Would be great for sensitive types.

Almay Clear Complexion Foundation in shade Sand
Hands down this foundation has been added to my "best drugstore finds", especially considering that I'm a drugstore foundation snob. Bought this on a recommendation from a co-worker after I asked her what makeup she used. I admit I never look at Almay products, displays just don't attract me neither does their packaging. This foundation not only comes in a glass pump dispenser (my fave) but contains salicylic acid which is great at reducing clogged pores, not sure how effective really in a foundation but my skin is left looking smooth and doesn't even look like I have foundation on.

Clinique Almost Lipstick
If you haven't heard of Clinique Black Honey lipstick (a cult beauty favourite) than your not that well-versed in beauty products. One of Clinique's most famous lipsticks because of its "almost there" barely there stained lips. Hands down all shades are perfect for Spring, for that natural "I didn't try" makeup days!

Vichy ProEVEN Daily Dark Spot Corrector
Gentle, non-irritating, brightening skin lotion. Can be used with another moisturizer for drier skin types but I found hydrating enough on its own. Skin is luminous + the Vit C is added bonus.

All Natural Skin Cream by Hans Martin
This all natural cream made with olive oil, well water (from Martin's backyard), beeswax, is AMAZING!! First, let me add that my fabulous hairdresser Eva has the best skin I've ever seen & she's a wealth of knowledge with regards to natural products for hair and skin. So when she told me her uncle Hans has been making this cream for over 30 years I had to try it! Truly an amazing cream that can be used on face and body, just a little goes along way. I'll be posting more about this cream in a later post!
