March Favorites

Posted on April 1, 2014 at 6:55 PM


Each month, I will let you in on my Holy Grails and favorite products for that month. Although I have many favorites, I will try to limit them to fewer than 10 each month. Many of these products I have had for several months and I am barely getting to use them. Yes, I am a makeup hoarder, don’t judge me. I have a habit of getting stuff and storing them away for later. Okay, let’s get down to business.


I narrowed it down to 6 products this month. Only two makeup products this month, one hair care product and the other 3 are skin care.

Chamomile Gentle Eye Makeup remover:

Very gentle and great for those with sensitive skin and contact lens wears (like me). Looks like water, no fragrance and is color-free. It removes my eye makeup with such ease even waterproof mascara without irritation or making my eyes red.

I have tried many different eye makeup removal products and since I wear contacts (poor vision) most of them have burned my eyes or irritated them but not this product. I keep going back to it and I don’t know why I keep finding other eye makeup removal products when this one has been so good to me. I have been using this product since 2010 and love it. I also love the brand, The Body Shop is a great company who uses ingredients that are sourced through Community Fair Trade, plus they are making a huge difference in the world by raising fund and spreading global awareness of domestic violence, prevention, support and protection for abused women and children. This is such a great company!

GLAMGLOW Youthmud Tinglexfoliate treatment

I first tired this in a subscription service in October 2012. It’s a 10 minutes mud mask that leaves your skin smother, brighter and softer. It gently exfoliates and absorbs impurities without removing natural oils from the skin. It does sting a little but it goes away. I love this product.

It has French Sea Clay which absorbs impurities and toxic substances, while minimizing pore size.

Volcanic Pumice Rock which clears dead skin cells and smoothing out find lines and softens skin texture.

Green Tea Leaf Pieces (you will see pieces of this that looks like seaweed on your face after applying the mask) a groundbreaking patent pending TEAOXI™ technology delivers fresh Super-Squalene, EGCG super antioxidants, and Polypenols directly into the mud from the real pieces of tea leaf.

JOSIE MARAN Argan Oil Hair Serum

KAT VON D Shade Shifter Eyeshadow

Shade in Love Letter (purple)

I love KAT VON D products and own two of the shade shifters in the shades Love Letter and On the Road (brown). Supposedly the colors are chameleon-like, color shifting shades when activated by water. I have seen it with On the Road but not so much with Love Letter, with Love Letter it does give it a metallic change when activated with a setting spray that I use. It’s still a gorgeous color and I love it. I like using it alone on the lid and cease followed by a winged eyeliner look. Very pigmented and crease resistant with Urban Decay’s eye primer and it goes on easy.

PRICE: $16

WHERE: Sephora

Too Faced intense eye shadow singles

Shade in Temper Temper.

Temper Temper is a deep merlot shade, very gorgeous color and reminds me of MAC’s eyeshadow in Cranberry. I haven’t applied this wet yet but dry, it resembles the finish of KAT VON D shade shifter eyeshadow in Love Letter wet. It’s very pigmented, long lasting and crease-resistant. Does not feel chalky and very smooth to apply. Both colors listed in my March favorites are bold shades but they are perfect along for a daytime-drama look. I like using Temper Temper with a cat eye liner look.
