Five Favorites: February 2013

Sorry , I know this post is a little late, but to be honest with you this month flew by so quick and I forgot to pick my favorites for the month. I know, I'm horrible lol. Well, better late than never, right? Here are my 5 most used and favorite products from February.


Beauty Blender

I kept hearing so many great things about this product so I first bought a knock off version at CVS a few months ago. I wasn't impressed with it at all so I finally gave in and bought the real thing this month and now I understand what all the hype is about. My foundation is so much easier to apply with this and I can see a big difference in how my foundation looks too. Its really easy to clean and I can't see myself using anything other than the beauty blender to apply my foundation. I purchased the beauty blender set for $35 on Sephora's website. The set comes with the beauty blender sponge and the beauty blender cleaner. It was worth every penny!


Burt's Bees Garden Tomato Toner

I started adding a toner to my skin regimen over the summer and I would try different kinds from drugstores and didn't see much results. So for Christmas my mom surprised me with this product. Mostly every Burt and Bee's product I've tried hasn't disappointed me so I was hoping this would be the same. I've never used any skin products with tomato in it but I guess there really good for your skin. Within a week or two of using this daily I noticed that my skin stopped getting oily towards the end of the day and I also noticed less breakouts. I've read a lot of mixed reviews, some people hate it, some people love it. I guess it depends on your skin type. I have combination skin, more dry than oily and I love it. They sell this at my local Target for around $20.

Remington T-Studio Pearl Ceramic Curling Wand

I've never bought one of those expensive curling wands, for example,the Enzo and after using this curling wand I would never spend that much money on one. This Remington Ceramic Curling Wand gives me really pretty curls that actually last. It comes with a wide variety of temperature settings and one of those heat resistant gloves so you don't burn your fingers. I really like that you can achieve different types of curls; tight ringlets, bouncy curls, beachy waves, etc. If I didn't already know how much I paid for this I would have guessed it cost a lot more than $25! I highly recommend this if your looking for a good curling wand but don't want to spend a lot of money. I got mine at Walgreen's but have also seen it at other drugstores. 


Tweezerman Stainless Steel Clippers

My nails tend to grow very quickly so I need to cut them down almost every 3 weeks. I don't like to use a nail file to cut them down because I feel like it weakens them so I use a nail clipper. I've been looking everywhere for a nail clipper that has a flat straight edge instead of the usual slight curve edge. When I use the regular nail clippers it makes it a lot harder to keep the shape of my nails square. So I finally came across a pair by Tweezerman on Amazon for only $5 that have a complete straight edge. These are actually toe nail clippers but I use them on my nails so I get a nice even straight cut and not a curve. It makes it so much easier to shape my nails the way I want them now.  If you're looking for a pair like this and haven't found them at a store, go on Amazon.


e.l.f Studio Powder Brush


I bought this brush before I bought the beauty blender, but I wanted to add it to my favorites because it really is a great brush. I've used this brush to apply powder and liquid foundation and it works really well with both. I was surprised at how soft and dense the brush was and that it doesn't shed. I have brushes like this that cost way more that shed everytime I use them. Even more, it always picks up the right amount of foundation and deposits the pigment evenly and flawlessly! For only $3 this brush is definitely worth it!! I found this brush at Target with all the other elf products.

Have you tried any of these products? What were your most used products of February?

    1. Once you get the beauty blender you probably wont use your elf brush too much anymore. It is so worth the money!
