April Favorites

I can't believe it's going to be May tomorrow already. The year is going by so fast, and I feel like I haven't even done anything. I haven't really had the chance to try out makeup lately, it's just been too busy, but there are still a few things I wanted to share.

This one is Dim Light, the powder is so light and so fine. You definitely don't need to pack your brush. I just lightly dust this all over my face. This is a light peachy color, looks shimmery, but once you brush it over the face, you don't notice it at all. It's extremely sheer, and just gives a nice finish to your makeup look. I'm so mad though, because just a few days after I bought it, Hourglass brought out the Ambient Lighting Palette! It's going to be part of their permanent collection now, so if anyone wants to try these out, I highly suggest checking out the palette. It's a much better deal, and you get to try three different powders. One of the powders is also exclusive to the palette.

Daisy Eau So Fresh Sunshine

So unfortunately, you can't buy this in stores anymore. It was a limited edition perfume Marc Jacobs brought out last year. Since it's Spring, I wanted something really light and flowery. Just like the name suggests, it's like sunshine in a bottle! The perfume has notes of strawberry, apple blossom, grapefruit, jasmine, rose, violet leaves, oak moss, and amber wood. The only thing I don't like about Marc Jacobs perfumes is how the scent disappears after a few hours. You definitely need to top off using this. 

I expected to like this, but not this much. It's not a heavy oil at all, it's actually quite watery. I use two pumps and it takes off all my makeup, even my waterproof mascara. But I always use another cleanser afterwards. (Double cleaning is your best friend guys)  It has a faint fragrance, nothing too in your face. The Body Shop has 40% and 50% sales all the time, so definitely check it out if this appeals to you. This is the first cleansing oil I've used and I love it.

I've always loved the Vitamin E line, especially the scent of the products. I heard good things about this serum and since I needed one, I thought why not give this a try. I've used this the whole month and I can definitely see a difference in the texture of my skin. My skin is so smooth and not as dry as it used to be. You cannot use this alone as a moisturizer, always use a moisturizer on top to lock it in. The smell is really light and the texture of the serum feels like water when you put it on your skin. I use one pump and it's plenty enough for my whole face and neck.

What items have you been loving this month? :)


  1. i've been really into serums lately so the the vitamin E one definitely caught my eye! i love the drops of youth serum from the body shop, it worked great on my sensitive skin.

    and just wanted to say hi as i stumbled across your blog and nearly drooled over all your food posts haha

    1. hello to you too! :) I wish I actually made all that food!

      anyways, I have super sensitive skin, but the vitamin E one doesn't irritate my skin at all! you should definitely try it if you're interested!
