February Beauty Favorites

Can you believe it's already March? We've been getting some crazy weather here in Michigan, and it feels like it's the dead of winter. Spring can't come soon enough, we have so many fun things planned and I'm just itching for sunshine. February was a tough month for us, between being sick pretty much all month and launching a business between it all. There were however, quite a few products I was loving during the month of February!

Multiberry Yogurt Repairing Mask - You guys, this stuff is amazing. I picked up this sample size at Target near the travel section. Not only does it smell like strawberries & cream, but it seriously healed up my dry winter skin. This 10-minute mask, I put on before doing my makeup for date night. I didn't really expect much, but after I washed it off my makeup went of flawlessly and there was not a patch of dry skin in sight! 

Malin & Goetz Mojito Lip Balm - I have been on the hunt for the elusive "perfect" lip balm for. ever. It's like the perfect purse, I don't think it exists... until now. Again, I didn't really expect this balm to do much. It goes on like a thick gloss, but it's not sticky. Since it's so crazy dry right now, I'm not wearing as much lipstick in order to help prevent my lips from drying out further. The gloss wears away throughout the day, but very evenly and never it a chunky or sticky way. Seriously, one swipe keep my lips hydrated for most of the day. 

Mario Badescu Facial Mist - I have been loving this stuff for a lot longer than just the month of February, but with the winter months my skin has been begging for more hydration. This facial mist smells so lovely, it's a treat to be able to apply. I usually mist in the morning and evening before I apply my moisturizer or throughout the day when I feel like a little refresh.

Beauty Protector - This stuff is like a little bottle of MAGIC for your hair. It smells AMAZING. It's a heat protectant, blow dry spray, shine spray... just to name a few. It leaves your hair feeling silky soft and smelling awesome.

Wet n Wild One Step Wonder Gel (in Condensed Milk) - I've been obsessed with this polish. This color is the perfect "milky" neutral color. It lasted at least a week without chipping, I was honestly amazed how long this lasted! 

Covergirl TruNaked Palette in Nudes - This has been my go-to palette for the past month or so. I can't justify forking over the $$$ for higher end palettes, so this one at drugstore prices is a perfect alternative. The shadows are really smooth, blend nicely, and are still versatile. For quick weekday mornings, this palette has everything for a simple and easy look for work.

Loreal Infallible Pro Matte Gloss - On the days I have been wearing lipstick, I've been switching between these. They are amazing. The colors are phenomenal and bonus... they don't dry out your lips. I don't care too much for liquid lipsticks because I find them really drying but these are more of a creamy, mousse-y consistency that is really comfortable to wear.   

Tisserand Aromatherapy Sleep Dreams Rollerball - If you've been following me on social media, you'll know that I love using my oils. I have been using Young Living, but I picked this blend up at TJ Maxx because I've heard good things about Tisserand. I loooove this scent, it's so relaxing. I roll it on my wrists before bed and I really do think it helps me sleep in more of a relaxed state.
