Beauty Favorites | March 2014

Have you found yourself reaching for some beauty products more than others lately? Are you switching up items in your beauty arsenal because of the refreshing weather change? I must admit that I have. I purchased some new items and even shopped my stash for what I've considered my go-to products for last month. And you know I had to share my thoughts with you all here on the blog, right? Check out my March Beauty Favorites below.

Skin Care + Body Care

Acqua di Gioia Fragrance for Women may be my all-time favorite fragrance. I especially love to wear Acqua di Gioia in the spring and summer months. Taking a whiff of this scent instantly takes my mind to sandy shores and the beautiful ocean!

Sweet Lavi Soap by Creamed Gourmet Body Treats is a gem, indeed! I won this soap in a giveaway hosted over on Marie Young's blog GoodLooknOut last month and have enjoyed getting "creamed" every since! The Sweet Lavi Soap, like all the others sold by Creamed Gourmet Body Treats, is hand-crafted and all natural. This bar is so rich and moisturizing! It lathers well and keeps my shower smelling like lavender. I love it! Good looking out, Marie and Amber!

Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer was meant for me to own, you guys. I was browsing the skin care aisle at Walmart on an ordinary day and saw this moisturizer for only $3. Yes, $3! And though cheaper is not always better, the low price point gave me just cause to try this product. It's oil-free and is formulated for clear, even skin tone--just what I need in a moisturizer. It's too early to tell if Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer is evening out my complexion, but it has given my face a smoother texture. Too bad there were only two bottles in the store that day, though. This moisturizer sells for $17 everywhere else. I guess I got lucky this time!


MAC Matte Lipstick in Flat Out Fabulous is a lipstick lover's dream! If you follow me on Instagram, you already know how much I love this lipstick. It's from the Retro Matte Collection and is the most beautifully bright plum shade you'd ever want to wear. And it lasts forever, as my lips stay stained even after I wipe them clean.The name says it all--this lippie truly is Flat Out Fabulous.

MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Shy Girl has been my go-to nude lippie as of late. This lipstick has a nice, creamy formula, making it a breeze to apply evenly (even without a mirror lol). I tend to pair this lipstick with various lipliners to change its overall look, making it a very versatile lipstick choice.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil in Whiskey is a great eyeliner for everyday wear. It's not as heavy as a black liner, and can easily be used along the lashline for a subtle look. And no worries, it's waterproof so it won't budge! 

e.l.f. Conditioning Lip Balm in Nice and Natural is a great conditioning lip treatment for the low! I love how smooth and moisturizing my lips feel after applying this balm. And though the color says "nice and natural," this shade may be a little light for most skin tones. I'll line my lips if I wear it alone without gloss or lipstick. But I use this lip balm mostly before bed to condition my lips as I sleep :) I guarantee after using, you'll wake up with soft, supple lips! 

Hair Care

OGX Hydrating Conditioner has been used a lot around my way on wash day. I just love the way this conditioner smells! I've been using it to add moisture to my hair after protein treatments and my hair loves it. It's a great instant conditioner that I'm sure I will be purchasing again and again--especially if Walgreens continues to run that BOGO Free sale!

OGX Nourishing Anti-Breakage Serum is becoming one of my favorite hair products. I've been applying this serum to my hair every other night after moisturizing and sealing. It smells divine and it helps lock in moisture. And a little goes a long way with this product. I promise only using a tiny drop or two will be plenty!
