April is finally here! One of my favorite months, and for many reasons! One of those reasons is this is my anniversary month with my life partner Yusuf. April is also the month that finally kick starts spring here in Texas. Texas will start to have cooler weather, pastels are in season, the wildflowers are popping up everywhere! It’s just a fabulous month! I wanted to type up some of my beauty and skin care tips for this month to share with you guys. I hope you enjoy! I have attached links to each product at the bottom of the blog for you!
Skin: Currently I have been loving the Tarte cosmetics Frxxxtion stick 3-in-1 exfoliating cleanser. I use this product about twice a week and a little goes a long way when you use this just for cleaning & exfoliating. The bonus part about this product? You can also apply a thicker amount of product to your face and neck then allow the product to sit and you have a mask! I usually leave mine on for about 10 minutes and then I rinse it off gently and pat dry with a face towel. I instantly have this super soft and glowing skin. This product sells for $22 and it is 1.0 Oz! Let’s be honest now, we have all spent way more money on 1.0 Oz of skincare. At least I have, shh don’t tell Yusuf.
Makeup: This may not be entirely what your expecting as far as makeup goes, BUT it is an amazing product. I am currently in love with taking my makeup off with Clinique “take the day off” makeup removing wipes. This product made me breakup with my old makeup remover (Neutrogena wipes 25 per pkg and cost $8-$9 at CVS, Walmart, Target) AND it cost more! Wait, don’t keep scrolling! Let me explain. The Clinique face wipes are much more soft on my skin and eyes. I no longer feel like I’m irritating my eyelids and lash line from a rough cloth. I can use one wipe to remove a full face of makeup! (not including a liquid lip) The wipes are unscented, so there is no harsh smell that is overwhelming or makes your eyes burn! I love this product and will continue to use it as long as Clinique continues to carry it. The price is $15 and I purchase mine at my local Sephora. They are also carried in Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus. It gets better though! There are 50 wipes per package and you can actually reseal the package so your wipes wont dry out! This means you won’t have to drive to the store to pick up more as often.
Hair: LIVING PROOF Perfect Hair Day night cap overnight perfector. Cost is $28 for 4 FL oz. That’s a lot of product for $28 in my opinion! We all know the hair rule and if you don’t then spoiler alert. Its best to wash your hair once to twice a week. Yes, you still shower just wear a hair cap and blow dry whatever gets wet afterward! This product will help your hair look its best in between shampoos. I use this product after I wash my hair applying a dime size amount in my hand, rub it together and then through my hair. Ill then tie or braid my hair back and then go to sleep. This product will help your hair be more manageable during the week as well as putting some shine in those locks!
