Here are my May beauty favorites! I have been using these for the last few months and are absolutely addicted. For anyone looking for some new products, give these bad boys a go.
Patchology Lip Renewal Flash Pack Lip Gels
Kiss dry lips goodbye. Quickly moisturize and soften your pout. You’re left with perfectly prepped lips, ready to apply your favorite lip liner or lipstick. I preferably love to put these on before going to sleep at night and I wake up with fresh, hydrated lips! Purchase them at patchology.com
Perricone MD Pre:Emt Series Oil-Free Hydrating Cream
Having naturally oily skin, Perricone’s Pre:Emt moisturizer has been a lifesaver. The whole series is focused on youth anti-aging. The cream preserves more youthful-looking, hydrated and conditioned skin in a lightweight, oil-free texture. Purchase it at perriconemd.com
Cosmedicine Night Duty and Honest Face
Night Duty is my absolute new obsession! It feels like velvet when it touches your skin, and makes you wake up feeling so smooth and rejuvenated. I feel a lot of my sun spots have gone since using it each night, and it is also known to increase the protection against free radical skin damage (as compared to beta- carotene), which is known to cause premature aging, fine lines and wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. Honest Face is also my current go-to tinted moisturizer, the SPF 20 antioxidant-rich sheer moisturizer gives a natural radiance that I can’t get enough of. Buy them at cosmedicine.com.
EVO WATER KILLER DRY SHAMPOO
I don’t know if I could go back to using another dry shampoo after water0killer. This is a two-in-one dry shampoo and styling spray that makes my hair feel and smell fresh again. Benefits? It helps prevent damage to hair through washing and blow drying, saves time, saves water, can be used anytime, anywhere, and can also be used as a texturising styling spray. Buy it at evohair.com
NARS Blush in Orgasm
The ultimate authority in blush, NARS offers the industry’s most iconic shades for cheeks. Natural, healthy-looking color that immediately enlivens the complexion. A light application of even the highest-intensity hues delivers a natural-looking flush. Buy it at narscosmetics.com.
ZOYA NAIL POLISH
I’ve always been such an OPI fan until discovering ZOYA. ZOYA is a Big-5 free brand which if you didn’t know, means its free of a) animal testing and b) contains no toluene, camphor, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin and DBP in its polishes. Buy it at zoya.com
JAMES READ OVERNIGHT TAN
My most LOVED face tan of all time. A conditioning non-aerosol mousse that creates a light golden glow in an hour, a medium tan in two hours, and a deep bronze shade after three hours. Even better is it’s fragrance free and contains no parabens, sulfates or phthalates. Buy at sephora.com
AESOP – RESURRECTION HAND BALM
The only hand cream that I have found to significantly strengthen my nails! This balm is a miracle worker. $27 later but this sublime product contains a blend of fragrant botanicals and skin-softening emollients that deliver the most insane hydration to my hands and cuticles.Buy it at aesop.com
Too Faced Natural Eyes
CHANEL COCO MADEMOISELLE FRESH BODY CREAM
I may love it because it’s Chanel or because it seriously hydrates and softens skin, and is lightly scented with my favorite Coco Mademoiselle scent. The non-greasy formula glides on smoothly and absorbs quickly. Ideal after bath or shower. Buy it at nordstrom.com
