April Favorites

Well the month of April came and left right away, I think it's because I had a really busy month but you know what that means right? Its time for my monthly favorites!

The first item in my monthly favorites is the Dead Sea wash-off mask by Global Beauty Care, which I talked about in my March Ipsy Glam Bag post. Like I mentioned before, this mask contains salt and minerals from the Dead Sea. It is a deep cleaning, mud based formula mask made for all types of skin. I immediately like it after the first try but I wasn't sure if I was going to see changes in my skin. But now after using it a little bit over a month I can say I am in love with this product. This mask made my skin so smooth. I loved the way it felt and smelled. It became a ritual mask during my bath time. 

I recently started becoming more obsessed with facial care products. I've been trying out a lot of masks, scrubs, and facial cleansers. I have realized that I really enjoy muddy products that contain either mud, charcoal, or lava, yes I said lava but I'll talk about that another day. This brings me to my next monthly favorite which is the Michael Todd Jojoba Charcoal Facial Scrub. This is a polishing facial scrub combining Jojoba wax beads and activated charcoal. It specializes in removing dead skin, impurities, toxins and leaves the skin feeling smooth and refreshed. Whenever I was going to have a long day, I made sure to use this in the morning. Not only did it make my skin glow but it felt incredible after. In addition, normally during this time I suffer from season allergies and the skin around my nose gets really dry and you can usually see dead skin around my nose. However, lately my nose has been looking very smooth this allergy season thanks to this scrub. I'm just about done with my current container and I'll definitely be buying another one soon.

About two weeks ago when Ricky and I were in San Francisco we ended up staying over at his parents house after he got out of the ER. Since I wasn't expecting to spend the night, I didn't bring any make-up with me and I normally don't like getting out the house without mascara or eyeliner. I ended up going to Walgreens to get some eyeliner, since we decided to spend the day with his mom. I quickly picked up the Rimmel Scandaleyes Gel Eyeliner in the color Black. At that moment, I really didn't care much about it since I just wanted some life to my eyes. However, if you are use to gel eyeliner like this, or such as the MAC Fluidline which I love, then you will like this eyeliner. I have been using the MAC Fluidline for a long time, and was really pleased when I tried the Rimmel's version. I think it stays on for a really long time, especially for the price. I thought it would have smeared or creased on my eyes but it didn't. This gel eyeliner also comes with a brush, which wasn't bad at all. I been applying the eyeliner with the brush it came and I really like it. You just have to make sure to clean your brush after every use so it doesn't dry up with the eyeliner. Overall, it's a great eyeliner at a great price!

The last product I have is Flonase, an allergy relief spray. When I went to visit my parents in my hometown, I got really bad allergies and couldn't stop sneezing. So my mom picked me up some Flonase, she had been highly talking about Flonase for a while, but I had yet to try it. I normally like oral medicine or no medicine at all but since I couldn't handle my sneezing I decided to give it a try. After trying it out I quickly felt so much better. I stopped sneezing and I was finally able to breathe through my nose. It was almost like I didn't have allergies at all. It also smelled so pretty like a nice bouquet of flowers. The best part is I only needed to spray it once on each nostril and I could be good for couple of days or even a week or two.

Hope you enjoyed my April Favorites, looking forward to Magical May.
