Monthly Favorites : My May Favorites!

June 7, 2013

I was meant to post this month’s favorites a week ago but I was caught up with school and exams (happening very soon!) Sorry!
May has been a month of testing for me. I’ve tried and tested a bunch of new products and most of them have made it to my top list. Before the “product testing” phase, my skin went against me. It dried up, I got bad breakouts and somedays I would end up with an oily T-zone and dry patches around my chin and nose. Ugh, the horror!

I’m going to start off with Urban Decay’s setting spray All Nighter. I wouldn’t leave the house without spritzing a bit of that stuff on my dry patches. It would magically make them disappear. Crazy, I know. It also makes my makeup last all day (for those of you living in Dubai, you know what I mean).

Remember I went to Morocco and got this little bottle of Argan oil? I started using it this month. Oh em gee. Argan oil is the shizzle (to avoid using another word). It’s 100% pure Argan oil, bio and natural. It’s magic! Ever since I started using this, my breakouts started fading away and my skin got way better. I sometimes use it on my hair too after the shower. I’m not a huge fan of applying it to dry hair though. I normally apply it to my face before sleeping to allow my skin to absorb all of the product. Will probably write a post sharing the benefits of this oil.

If I’m not using Argan oil on my hair, then I’ll be using Davines’s Oi/Oil that I got to know earlier in may. I’m not the type who would enjoy hair products for the only reason that I find nothing works on me. However, this oil made my dry-looking locks healthy, shiny and smooth. I’m not going to say much about it now. Stay tuned for a full review 😉

If you’ve read my previous posts you would know that I’ve been enjoying Dermalogica’s Macrofoliant, Rimmel’s Apocalips and Maybeline’s Dream Lumi Touch. I believe the reviews show enough love to these products.

My sister came back to Dubai for a week and got me a rather considerable amount of gifts. Of course, my heart was caught by the white and black shopping bag with the label Chanel in the center, that I intagrammed a while ago. She picked up for me a Chanel Coco Rouge lipstick in Liaison. Best sister ever? I immediately fell in love with the color. I would have, probably, never picked this up from a Chanel counter. Anyway, I’ve been wearing this every weekend. Perfect shade for spring and summer! Will post swatches soon.

I promised a lot of posts and reviews until now. A bit problematic with my my exams at the moment. I’ll do my best to keep this blog alive. Stay tuned!
