Recently, I have become slightly obsessed with shopping for some new beauty and skin care products. When I hit the big 30 a couple of years ago I noticed my skin changed and my normal beauty routine had to change so I have tried a few new items over the last couple of months and wanted to share my beauty favorite must haves either each month or every other. Sort of like a mini review about my new beauty favorite finds.
May Beauty Favorite Must Haves
GRAVITYMUD™ Firming Treatment – $69.00
I am a HUGE fan of the GLAMGLOW brand and when the new GRAVITYMUD one came out I needed it in my life. These are alittle pricey but well worth the money. The GRAVITYMUD mask is an instant firming and tightening, silver peel-off treatment.
It looks really cool when you apply it too and comes with a little brush to help apply which really comes in handy. I instantly saw results when I used this mask, my face seemed a little tighter and over the course of 3 weeks I notice a pretty big change in my fine lines. This mask is for all skin types. I tend to be on the sensitive side and it does leave my face a bit read after I take it off but it is not long lasting about 30 mins later my face goes back to its normal color.
Take The Day Off Makeup Remover For Lids, Lashes & Lips – $19.00
I had to include this in my My beauty favorites. I think this guy is here to stay for the long haul.
This is by far the best eye makeup remover I have ever used! Even after washing my face I noticed some mascaras and eyeliners never came off completely and I was left with black circles under my eyes. In the past I have used wipes for my face to remove my makeup but they always bothered my eyes.
This CLINIQUE eye makeup remover is so gentle and moisturizing. Its a bit like a dry oil so it feels so good under my eyes especially leaving them smooth and clean.
Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup – $40.00
I went back and forth on the Naked Skin foundation for a few months for its price. I just couldn’t justify it in my mind but I love Urban Decay products so I figured it was worth a try.
The Naked Skin foundation is AMAZING! Its medium to full coverage and creates a demi-matte finish. My face glows when I wear this foundation but not in a shiny kind of way it just looks so natural on the skin. I apply it with my beauty blender and it looks flawless.
The only issue I have is the smell. At first its a little strong but does disappear after it is applied. I can not really describe the smell exactly but its on the chemical side even though it states:
Not made with:
– Synthetic Fragrances
There is something about that initial smell but since it looks amazing on my face and I get complements when I wear it I don’t seem to mind.
TONY MOLY Collagen Mask Sheet – $4.00
I will do a whole post on my other new obsession – sheet masks but this collagen sheet mask by Tony Moly needed to be included in my beauty favorites for this month! I can not live with out this little guy!
It says “One-hundred percent soft cotton face sheets provide moisture and nutrition to damaged skin, soothe stressed skin, and give a rich glow to skin.”
No joke ladies it does just that! My skin looks so refreshed after I take this off and next day I notice a HUGE difference in my skin and how my makeup applies.
Pond’s Rejuveness Anti-Wrinkle Cream – $1.00 – $8.00
This Pond’s anti wrinkle cream I picked up at Target one day in their travel section on a whim. I have been using it for a few months now and I have noticed a difference in the tiny wrinkles in my forehead. I normally stay clear of creams like this since I do not like the greasy feeling that some leave afterwards but I was so happy this one does not. It is a thick consistency and sinks into the skin, dries pretty quickly but leaves my skin feeling hydrated at the same time.
I have seen a few reviews that say some people have a problem with the scent and yes there is a slight scent. Its a little overpowering in fragrance but I think it smells nice and it does not really bother me.
It did not really do much for my larger wrinkles like I had hoped but I no longer see new ones developing so I will continue to use it as part of my night time beauty routine.
And there it is, my beauty favorite must haves for May! Did you try any new beauty products this month? I’d love to hear if you have any for me to try out.
