TGIF everyone! Can you believe it’s already May? We are almost half way through this year, and I’m not sure I’m ready for it. …

Well hello there! Things have been a bit slow around here, but I am excited because I have a lot of fun posts coming your way in the next few weeks. I am so excited to bring back my beauty hits and misses today! I didn’t post one in February because pregnancy exhaustion is so real guys! I honestly did not have the energy, so I figured I’d combine the last 2 months. Today I am bringing you some products I tried in both February and March, and most of them were hits!
The first product I am excited to finally have jumped on the bandwagon for is the Chi Paint Party Flat Iron (c/o). I have never owned one because #straighthairproblems, but had always wanted to try one to curl my hair. I’m so glad I finally did! It helps create the most beautiful waves that stayed in tact all day long. This exact iron is currently on sale for under $80, which is such a great deal if you’re looking for a new straighter!
I have been trying out two new nighttime moisturizers, and have fallen in love with both. First is the E.l.f. Hello Hydration cream (c/o), which happens to be only $12. At this price this moisturizer is an absolute must have! It feels so silky, and is absorbed into the skin quickly. I have also been loving the DermaE Advanced Peptides & Collagen Moisturizer (c/o). This one has stronger scent to it, but is equally as moisturizing and luxurious feeling.
If you’re looking for a good body moisturizer, the Purlisse Coconut Oil + Orange Blossom Body Butter (c/o) smells and feels like a dream. If you like the scent of creamsicles, you’ll love this! I have been using it every day, and have even been using it as a belly moisturizer for the bump. The last hit is the Glo Skin Beauty Power C Serum (c/o). I have been using this every morning after I get out of the shower. This product is definitely a splurge, but has made my skin feel so much brighter. I have also noticed some of my dark spots/acne scars are lighter, which makes it a huge hit in my book!
As always, I’m super sad that a few products made it to my misses list. I really wanted to love both of these! I actually purchased the Pravana The Perfect Blonde Masque at the recommendation of my hair stylist. It was something I really wanted to love, but have just not been that impressed. My hair feels only slightly less brassy after using it, but not as much as I had hoped for. Another miss was the Pixi Rose Cream Cleanser (c/o). It smells great, however for some reason my face doesn’t feel super clean after using it. I don’t feel like it’s great at removing makeup, which is what I look for in a cleanser (especially if I’m using it at night!)

As soon as the temperatures start to rise, I usually get the itch to go through my makeup drawer and add some new products. Glowing, dewy skin is always a good idea, but for me, spring is the ideal time to incorporate this look into your makeup routine. I recently had the chance to try some of the new Physicians Formula products that are exclusive to Walgreens, and wanted to share how I used them to create an easy glowing makeup look for spring.
Any beautiful makeup look always has to start with skincare! I am loving the Rosé All Day Tri-Phase Beauty Elixir because it instantly preps, brightens and hydrates the skin. It feels a bit sticky at first, but dries down quickly and is the perfect base. I then follow that up with one pump of the Softlight Blurring Primer. I’ve been talking about this primer on my IG stories since I got it because I am SO impressed! My skin looks so much smoother, and it helps reduce the look of my fine lines and wrinkles. I have never really found a primer that I feel like makes a difference, but this stuff is truly a game changer. For today’s look I used The Healthy Foundation SPF 20 in the shade Light Neutral 3. This foundation is super lightweight, and offers a nice medium coverage. Since I am still pretty pale from the winter months, this shade is perfect for me. Throughout the spring and summer, when my skin gets a little darker, I love the option of using the Shade Adjuster Foundation Drops. It comes with both the light and dark drops to adjust your foundation as needed.The Mineral Glow Pearls Highlighter is the perfect way to finish off your look and to achieve a gorgeous glow! Highlighters can be tricky for me – sometimes they’re way too pigmented and other times not pigmented enough. I’ve always loved the Butter Highlighter, but am now finding myself reaching for the Mineral Glow highlighter instead! It adds the perfect amount of iridescent brightness to the skin, and can easily be built up to achieve the perfect glow for spring!
