Best of February

February has come and (almost) gone – I feel like it is a filler month between finally coming down from that holiday high and heading into spring. Spring is my least favourite season *gasp* what kind of monster am I?! I just cannot dress for it, I cannot wear pastels, I am always too hot or too cold – I hate it. I also don’t get the ‘new beginning’ thing. for whatever reason I associate the crispness of fall with new beginnings – maybe because of the back to school memories. Spring smells like dog poop in MN, not even lying. But anyway, I had a few favourites this month but lots of products that I have already been using all winter so I will just stick to the new favourites.

To start we have this amazing Make it Last Setting Spray, it smells so pleasant and the spritzer is one of the best I have used on bargain or luxury beauty products. I use about 3 sprays and it keeps my makeup looking fresh all day. Does it last 16 hours? No idea, I have never left my makeup on for that long but it is very nice.

I blew through the smallest size of Prince Charming and immediately purchased the biggest size. This shower cream smells like vanilla and something else – not pomegranate like it claims but something citrusy. The bubbles are pink too, I like to add a few dollops to my bubble baths and sit in charmingly pink foam.

My skin was mostly pissing me off all month, the changing weather never ceases to irritate it but this new Aloe, Cucumber & Green Tea Facial Spray has been amazing. It delivers the perfect moisture pick me up when I am feeling bleh and it doesn’t irritate whatever I’ve got going on. I like to be extra, extra and do 2 spritzes of this and 2 spritzes of the rose one 😛

My first ever cushion product is the Wet ‘n Wild Highlighter – this stuff is glorious and super easy to use. I apply it under foundation for just a little dew or over foundation for high shine – the formula is really nice and you get a lot of glow.

While I was wearing a lot of lippies all month, I was also loving this Vaseline balm in the rose tin. You get a little colour and rosy scent, it feels fancier than the OG but you still get all that glorious moisture.

Honestly, with all of the new releases recently – I just don’t recall many products blowing my mind. And that’s OK, I am using a lot of old products and culling my collection which is making room for new stuff 😀 What were you loving this February?

Thanks for stopping by ❤

  1. Great favourites 🙂 I agree, there are so many new releases but not much that catches my eye lately. I love the shower creams from lush!! They really make the whole experience so much more spa like. xo J

    • I’m glad I’m not the only one, I just feel like nothing really new and original is coming out 😞 Right?! They seem so decadent, thanks for reading 😘

    • I haven’t run into yet but have been keeping an eye out! The formula of the highlighter is nice so I bet the bronzer is too. I know, that spray is amazing!!

  2. I’ve heard so much about that Wet n Wild cushion highlighter. It looks stunning on all the pictures I’ve seen! I hope I can also try it out soon :-). Loved reading this blogpost girl, xo Anne ♥

    • It is fabulous – I am a cushion product skeptic but this is really nice and so affordable!! I hope that you can find it too. Thanks for reading ❤
