I got out of the habit of doing monthly favorites, because I wasn’t using new products! At the beginning of the month I ran out all my skincare and a lot of make-up I use daily. I picked up a few new things that I have really loved!
I picked up the Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado. I have super dry under-eye’s and this stuff works! It’s one of the “cheaper” eye creams I have used ($26). It is so hydrating, and my concealer applies so smooth and flawless! Dare I say it, but this Kiehl’s eye cream is better than the Bobbi Brown eye cream ($50-$70) I’ve used for years!
The sales woman at the Kiehl’s counter talked me into picking up the Kiehl’s Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturing Serum Concentrate. I don’t know how she did it because I always do my research before going into a department store so I cannot get talked into buying things! But I think this is a fairly new item because I’ve never even heard of it before! Maybe it’s just new to me! It has a weird texture, it’s not thick and oily like a normal serum, it feels kind of watery, yet effective. I pat this on my skin morning and night before I apply my moisturizer, which I found is the best way to use this. It really evened out my skin and faded a lot of my dark spots!
I picked up the Maybelline Fit Me! Matte and Poreless foundation. I love the original Fit Me! foundation so I was super excited when I saw they made a matte version! This formula I wouldn’t say is matte, but I would call it natural! It doesn’t make me super oily after a couple of hours, but it does leave me with a very natural skin-like finish that I love!
I’m still obsessed with my Biggs & Featherbelle Belly Balm! It is very thick and oily but is so moisturizing and nourishing, especially in this cold weather! I just use this on my stomach, back, and chest area. I use my daily Vaseline body lotion on my legs, arms, and feet. I’m trying my hardest to prevent stretch marks and so far, I don’t have any! (knock on wood!). I got this item for Christmas so I’m not 100% sure where you can buy this in store, but you can grab it on Amazon!
I am OBSESSED with the Motherhood Maternity Seamless Tank Top. It’s seriously the most comfortable tank top I have ever worn! It’s long so it covers my entire belly and stretchy so it will grow with my growing tummy! I wear one of these tank tops everyday!
Being pregnant, I’ve had a hard time sticking to an exercise routine. The most cardio I can personally do is walking and any kind of squats are out the window! I’ve been using my resistance band for some simple arm and leg workouts and it’s made me feel a lot better about myself! I have always been pretty good to sticking to a daily workout routine but being pregnant, I can’t do a lot of the workouts I was doing before. Who would have thought a simple $10 resistance band would have made me feel a heck of a lot better about myself!
So that’s it! Hopefully I’ll try more things in March so I can get back into the habit of doing monthly favorites again! Let me know if you have tried any of these items! 🙂
