In other news.....I've gotten so off track with mentioning my favorites, a lot of my not purchasing any make up has much to do with it. But I thought I would start it up again but only focus on my top favorite for the month. It can of course include make up and skin care, you know the deal but in a more focused to the point review of each item. Let's face it, too many favorites can be overwhelming, so sit back and relax and enjoy my five favorites for the month of April!

Garnier Fructise Full & Plush Root Amp:
Total random purchase. I was browsing for a new dry shampoo to try and ended up getting this. It's not something I use everyday but I do like to use it when I blow dry my hair (which really is seldom tbh), it gives it just a bit more umph! It's extremely affordable at around $3-$4. My favorite part about it though and why I want to mention it, is the smell. So good. Maybe all Garnier products smell like this but it's very summery, very fruity-fresh and it's great!
St. Ives Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin Moisturizer:
I've been using this for about half of the month. My skin is having a bit of a fit with...everything. This has became the moisturizer I have been using under my make up. I had been using Loreal Collagen Moisture Filler for years but after they added sunscreen in it (which was a few years ago) I just hadn't been 100% happy with it. Sunscreen often times burns my eyes when it gets near them and I was dealing with that every morning, it was too much. I also don't feel the need to have sunscreen in all of my products that I use. If I go outside I will add that element to it but just for everyday use, no thank you. So back to this wonderful product. It's no too oily that I can't use it with make up and there's no sunscreen in it which is a plus. Collagen is something I love to use on my skin, it really helps it.
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Eye Gel Cream:
I'm getting up there in years. It's time to get serious about skin care and especially eye care. I honestly don't think you can start soon enough with preventative skin care. I've been playing around a bit with samples of eye creams and found a few good ones (post soon?) but saw a write up about this and purchased it. It got rave reviews from many. It's very light, which is a huge plus for me and it doesn't aggravate my eyes, which is an even BIGGER plus for me. It also reminds me of one of my personal favorite samples I tried, Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream, but it's around $30 cheaper.
Glam Glow Power Mud Dual Cleanse Treatment:
I've recently discovered the wonderful brand of Glam Glow and honestly, I'm blown away with so many of their products I've tried (samples, gotta love em!). I purchased this in a small size for $20, the full size is $65. I like it, it gives my skin a deeper clean compared to most cleansers and while I do like it, I'm not completely sold on purchasing the full size when I run out. It really purges the skin but I think I would prefer something a bit more masky. Hmmm so then why do I like it this month? Well, it is great and I loved adding it to my weekly routine because it does clean deep down and that's something I really do like and need.
BlenderCleanser Solid by Beauty Blender:
Love. This. It really does get my Beauty Blender clean. The cleanest it has been with any soap or cleanser I've cleaned it with. I did use it on my brushes once and it worked okay but not amazing. But if you want to get your Beauty Blender super clean. This is it!
Thank you for reading! Enjoy the month of May! Hopefully a few April showers brought you some flowers!
