Monthly favorites : My February Favorites!

March 7, 2014

So it’s the end of a little two week holidays for me. I’m going back to school on Sunday with a load of exams waiting for me. I can’t wait for this year to finally end. I’ve used all my mental capacities by using and abusing my brain. Other than that, a few products have entered the love circle this month.

We have the new Nivea in-shower Body Lotion. I was supposed to mention this about, er, three months ago? Whoever came up with this concept is a pure genius and a very lazy person. I don’t know about you, but every time I get a new lotion/body cream I get excited about it for the first two days and promise myself that I’ll lather my whole body with it everyday. Of course, I never keep that promise because either I hate the sticky feeling of body lotions, I forget or I’m too lazy. How does this genius-ness work? After washing your whole body in the shower, spread this on the areas you want to moisturise and then rinse it off. Voila. Mucho easy and simple. 

Next is the classic fluidline Blacktrack by MAC. This is some sort of rediscovery. I’ve been using this a lot this month. It’s very smooth and easy to apply. 
On my nails is Isadora’s Summer Red. I don’t really care if it says ‘summer’ in the name, I used this during the whole winter (or whatever that breeziness was in Dubai). Ladies and gentlemen, I have found the truest of all reds. On top of that, the quality is amazeballs, comparable to Essie if not better. Now all I have to do is go get myself a new bottle because I can’t work anymore with this little sample that came in my Glambox
Speaking of Glambox, in January’s box was this BB cream by Pond’s. Now I don’t get that much excited about BB creams just because BB, CC, foundation, tinted moisturisers… It’s all the same to me. Of course, there are a few things that change (formula, finish, coverage, shade). Now, I’ve been reaching out a lot for this BB cream. It’s great for everyday use. Plus, I don’t need to powder my face with this. It dries to a semi-matte finish and lasts quite a while. The only problem is that my skin is a bit light for this right now. So I always need to slap a s*** load of bronzer down my neck. 
Finally, the Maybelline Insant Anti-Age Eraser concealer. I have a love/hate relationship with this and now I seem to be in the love phase. Lately, this has been so good to me and I’m scared run out of it knowing that it’s not available in Dubai. You know what they say, all good this come to an end.

Have a lovely Friday 🙂 

What are your favorites this month? Tried any of these?
