Hey everyone! Whoa I just realized that I haven't done a monthly favorites on my website. Its just always so hard to keep up with and most of the time, my favorites are usually the same. LOL I don't know if its a good thing that a makeup product can take you forever to finish up or if its a bad thing. Haha, all you makeupaholics and makeup hoarders know what I am talking about! So since I have been loving so many favorites this month, I decided that I wanted to share them. Plus I wanted to start doing these kind of posts on my makeup blog as well. I have been loving posting on my makeup blog and thank you to all of my gorgeous followers out there! I really appreciate all of the support!
Okay onto my FEBRUARY FAVORITES!! I have a bunch of products that I would like to show you! I have stuff ranging from makeup to skincare products. Plus I also have a random non-beauty favorite as well and its two books that I just finished reading. I didn't take any pictures of them because well, I forgot too. LOL The two books that I loved reading in February were the The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks. Nicholas Sparks is one of my favorite authors and its been so long since I have read a book by him. Plus The Hunger Games has a movie coming out and I wanted to see what all the hype was surrounding the series. I pretty much finished the book in two days and can't wait for the movie to come out and also to read the second book in the series. If you have read any of these books, please let me know what you think about them!
Okay now, onto my actual health & beauty favorites! I have a bunch of favorites ranging from skincare to makeup products. The products that I have been loving in the month of February and probably onto March as well are (split into categories):
LOTIONS & PERFUMES:
(L-R) BBW Japanese Cherry Blossom, VS Noir Tease, VS Ravishing Love
BBW BODY SPRAY IN JAPANESE CHERRY BLOSSOM
I love this body spray. It smells so good. I have been using it a lot and it barely looks like I even made a dent in it, judging from the pictures. LOL According to the BBW website, Japanese Cherry Blossom is "a seductive and mysterious floral scent inspired by the exotic gardens of Japan. The top notes are Asian Pear, Fuji Apple and Ume Plumb. The middle notes are Japanese Cherry Blossom, Butterfly Lily, Kyoto Rose, Mimosa Petals. Last but not least, the dry notes are Vanilla Rice, Imperial Amber, Silk Musk, Cinnamon Incense, Himalayan Cedarwood and creamy Sandalwood. All-in-all, Japanese Cherry Blossom smells so good! If you haven't smelled this before, definitely go to your BBW store and give this scent a whiff.
VS SEXY LITTLE THINGS NOIR TEASE
I have this scent in the set. I bought it a couple of months ago and I love this set. It smells so sexy. Plus I just love the packaging on the Tease. I also have the full-size of this but I haven't touched it yet. I have been mainly carrying the mini version in my purse and using it during the day. According to the description on the VS website: "Flirt. Play. Tease! Show it off in this thrilling twist of juicy fruits and seductive florals. It’s an enchanting blend of black vanilla, frozen pear and blooming gardenia."
VS ULTA MOISTURIZING HAND & BODY CREAM IN RAVISHING LOVE
As you can see from my pictures, I have the old packaging of this scent. I bought it during one of VS Semi-Annual sales a while back. I use it to moisturize my body after getting out of the shower. Its been great during the cold months. It really keeps my body moisturized during the day plus this scent smells so good. On the actual packaging, it describes the scent as "promegrante, blackberry and liliac."
FOUNDATION & BRUSH:
Almay Clear Complextion Foundation, ELF Studio Powder Brush
ALMAY CLEAR COMPLEXTION MAKEUP WITH BLEMISH HEAL TECHNOLOGY IN 220 NEUTRAL
I have been using this foundation almost everyday in February and I am still using it in March. It is such a great foundation. I also have this in the old packaging. The ones in the new packaging comes with pumps, which is even better! This is a great foundation for when I have active pimples on my face and I don't want to wear any heavy foundation that might irritate them. This foundation has 0.6% Saliclic Acid, which is great because its helps treat acne. I feel like with this foundation, my pimples go away faster. I will try to post a separate review on this soon.
ELF STUDIO FOUNDATION BRUSH
Oh my goodness, I love this brush! I have been using this brush for over a year now. Its such a great brush to apply liquid foundation and powder foundation. Plus its only $3USD plus tax, which is super affordable. This is the only brush that I ever use to apply my foundation. I have tried other brushes but nothing can ever compare to this one.
(L-R) Physicians Formula Blush, Rimmel Blush
PHYSICIANS FORMULA HAPPY BOOSTER GLOW & MOOD BOOSTING BLUSH IN ROSE
I bought this last year when it first came out because of all the hype. I just started using it again in February and I love it. It gives my that perfect color on my cheeks for the winter. Its very pigmented so I always need to be careful when applying this. This used to have a smell that was supposed to make anyone happy whenver they apply it to their cheeks but the scent went away on my blush. I just love the hearts on this and I love the hot pink packaging!
RIMMEL LASTING FINISH BLENDABLE POWDER BLUSH & HIGHLIGHTER IN 006 AUTUMN CATWALK
I just love how there are three shades that I can either use separately or all together. Its just such a pretty shade. Plus I love how it has shimmer in it, which is great for those times when I feel like my face is looking somewhat drab. LOL I also did a review on this with swatches.

(L-R) Rimmel Lash Accelerator, Almay Intense i-Color
RIMMEL LASH ACCELERATOR IN 003 EXTREME BLACK
I love this mascara. I always end up going back to this one. It makes my lashes so long. I wouldn't say that it makes my lashes grow long because I haven't noticed any difference but I love how black it makes them look. Plus it holds the curl all day.
ALMAY INTENSE I-COLOR LIGHT INTERPLAY TECHNOLOGY MASCARA IN 031 BLACK FLASH
This mascara gives my lashes volume, which I really like. Its meant for people who have brown eyes but its just a regular black mascara, so I think it can pretty much work for any eye color (but don't quote me on that LOL). It doesn't give me that much length so sometimes I would like to use this first and then top it off with Rimmel Lash Accelerator.
ELF STUDIO EYEBROW KIT
ELF STUDIO EYEBROW KIT IN DARK
I love this! I use it everyday and can never leave the house without this on. I feel like this product really makes my eyebrows define my face way better. I have a review on this product, as well as swatches.

(L-R) Clean & Clear Makeup Disolving Foaming Cleanser, ELF Studio Makeup Remover
ELF STUDIO MAKEUP REMOVER CLEANSING CLOTHS
These are the best makeup remover wipes ever! I have a bunch of these in my bathroom. I always buy a bunch whenever ELF has promotions online. I have gone though so many of these. I have tried a bunch of other makeup remover wipes and I like these more. These are $3USD for 20 wipes. They don't irritate my eyes or anything.
CLEAN & CLEAR MAKEUP DISSOLVING FOAMING CLEANSER OIL-FREE
I bought this one at Big Lots a while back and have been using it everyday. I have tried looking for these everywhere but I can never find it. I think its discontinued and the only place where I have seen these are at Big Lots. I haven't seen it anymore but hopefully they will restock them because I love these. It has a pump and it comes out as a foam, which I really like because I feel like it cleans my face better and helps get the makeup off more.
(L-R) Yes To Tomatoes Daily Balancing Moisturizer, Clean & Clear Persa-Gel 10
YES TO TOMATOES CLEAR SKIN DAILY BALANCING MOISTURIZER
I use this everyday as my day moisturizer. I always apply this onto my face in the morning right after I wash my face. Its the perfect moisturizer for me. Plus it smells really good. To me, it smells like cinnamon. I also have a review on this.

CLEAN & CLEAR PERSA-GEL 10
I use this for when I have a pimple or whenever I feel one coming on. It makes my pimples go away faster. It has 10% Benzoyl Peroxide, which is the maximum strength for acne medication. It says that you can use it during the day under makeup but I would never do that because when it dries, it leaves flaky white particles on where you applied it. I only use this at nighttime right before I go to bed and wash it off in the morning.
So I hope you all like my February Favorites! It might be a lot of products but trust me, there was a lot more before I reduced it down.
