It’s been so long since I posted, mainly because I was sick for the entire month of May. However, I did discover some new favorites throughout the month that I’m so excited to share!
Vita Liberata pHenomenal Tan Mousse ($54): This claims to provide an even tan that lasts 2-3 weeks. It definitely does not last more than a few days on me, but the bronzing mousse gives nice, even color when applied with a mitt. It could pass for a real tan — no orange finish here.
Glossier Coconut Balm Dot Com ($12): Although this is a great lip balm, it goes beyond that: it’s an allover skin salve that really helps to spot-treat dry skin, rough elbows, and ragged cuticles. Available in 3 other scents, plus an unscented version — but I love this coconut version.
Peter Thomas Roth Mega-Rich Intensive Anti-Aging Cream ($65): I’ve been using this nightly to hydrate while I sleep. Although it does feel a little thick at first, it sinks in quickly and absorbs nicely. It’s really luxurious!
I received this pretty J.Crew necklace ($150) as a birthday gift in April, but never actually put it on until a few weeks ago. I’ve worn it countless times this month, and every time I did, got so many compliments on it. It quickly became one of my favorites because it makes a statement and it’s so versatile. Love.
L.A. Girl HD Pro Concealers ($3 each): These are some of the best contouring and highlighting products — and they’re only $3 each! I love that they’re easily blendable, and you can create sharper or softer contours and highlights depending on how much you buff them into skin. They’re long-wearing and the color payoff is excellent. I can’t recommend these enough for sculpting the face. I bought Creamy Beige for highlighting and Medium Beige for contouring (there are 21 shades total).
Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream with SPF 30 ($24): For years, I’ve been searching for a daytime moisturizer that contains SPF and doesn’t feel heavy and sticky on my skin. I’ve tried expensive products, and finally turned to the drugstore. I’m kicking myself I didn’t do that sooner, because this is a gem. I apply it right after I wash my face in the morning and it sinks in immediately. My primer lays down beautifully on top of it without getting gunky. This is a staple on my vanity.
Did you have any go-to products this month? Would love to hear!
