Five Loves for May

Another month has flown by, unfortunately! I’ve been thoroughly enjoying my summer vacation, and now in June, I start up my summer job. I’m excited to be more productive again, but I’ve really been liking relaxing and refreshing during the month of May.

Hydrating Primer

Now that it’s summer, I’ve been enjoying a lot of no makeup days, but when I do wear makeup I’ve been reaching for the First Aid Beauty Coconut Skin Smoothie Primer. It’s very hydrating for the skin and leaves the skin with a nice amount of glow. A little bit of product goes a long way, and it smells like coconut and is good for your skin!

Clean Skin

My skin turns very oily during the summer, and once I start working all day I’m sure it’s going to get even worse. I’ve been using the Garnier Micellar Water in the waterproof formula recently. I love the original formula, so I thought I would try the other version to see which I prefer. There isn’t much of a difference between the two, and because I don’t wear waterproof makeup very often either one works great for me.

Acne Free

I picked up a trial set of the Clinique Acne Solutions Clear Skin System. I had previously bought the toner in full-size and liked how it was working on my skin. The stand out product (besides the toner) is the All-Over Clearing Treatment. You apply this all over the face to clear up acne and I think it’s been helping my skin some. I’ve only had a few breakouts since using this system and some my acne scars and blackheads are starting to clear up.

Summer Powders

Although these are products I would use all year around, they have been staples in my summer makeup. The first being the Tarte Blush in Captivating, which is a really pretty matte bright peach. I love how it creates the perfect summer flush, and I’ve realized how pretty peach blushes look on my fair skin! The next product I’ve been reaching for is the Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer. It has one of the best bronzer formulas and colors to create that sun-kissed look.

Candles & Scandal

Scandal has been my new Netflix obsession in May. I’ve already made it through two seasons and I am obsessed! I’ve been a big fan of Grey’s Anatomy and How to Get Away with Murder, so I’m not surprised that I love this show. Now when I’m watching Scandal, I like to light a nice summery candle. I’ve been loving Watermelon Lemonade and Salted Vanilla from B&BW. I’m also obsessed with my candle holders to make my candles even cuter!
