It’s monthly favorites time again! March is always my favorite time of the spring for beauty as Ulta tends to have big discounts and the 21 days of beauty event. I picked some stuff up lately that I love and I had enough of a round up for a March favorites post. So let’s dive in, shall we?
When it comes to makeup and skincare I try hard to find products with good ingredients that will benefit my skin in the long run. I’m someone who favors good skincare over makeup, but the makeup that stays on my skin all day needs to be just as good. That’s where It Cosmetics comes in. This is one of my favorite beauty brands as they offer worthwhile skincare alongside some of the best makeup I’ve ever used.
We’re in the peak of winter, and while the cold never bothered me anyway (I’ll see myself out now) it definitely bothers my skin. Having sensitive skin in cold weather can lead to painful chapping, dry patches, and misery all around. Certainly doesn’t help when I get breakouts and makeup will not lay right to cover them. However, I think after a few years of being into this skincare thing and some trial an error I’ve found a routine to beat those dry-skin-scalies.
First ever monthly favorites! Woo! I always love watching favorites on Youtube or reading about them in people’s blogs, so I thought I would try my hand at one this go around. I haven’t tried too much this month, as I tend to be a creature of habit, but I think I have some bits and bobs that would be nice to share.
I have suffered from acne for as long as I can remember. I had a really nice period between eighth and ninth grade where my skin was completely flawless, and then it just went downhill from there. I’ve tried acne creams, gels, pills, face washes, scrubs, pore strips, you name it, I’ve probably tried it. They’ve helped, for a while, but with all of them, my skin is always left dry, irritated, and stupidly sensitive. I’ve been on the never-ending search for a moisturizer that wasn’t going to make my face greasy but was going to do the job I needed it to.
