For the month of May I really want to concentrate on the information I’ve gained all throughout April. Although this first post’s assortment of products came from my April Birchbox, a lot of these products were ones I wanted to take some time to really test out and see exactly how much result would be accumulated throughout the month of April.
Needless to say I wouldn’t be talking about them to some degree if I wasn’t pleased. So I want to get straight down to business.
BB and CC Creams are something I have been really pushing hard in my daily life the more I become familiar with their multi-functional benefits. (Another more in depth post on that this month) The first CC Cream I sampled was the one pictured here from Supergoop! and there were a few things I noticed immediately. Upon reading the back contents I realized the concentration of ingredients was much higher than that of a BB Cream. Making it’s skin regenerative properties much more likely to produce some results. I also noticed a difference in what it actually did for my skin. My tone has become more even especially when not wearing makeup and my skin always feels more supple and less dry throughout the day while substituting a CC Cream for a foundation. This particular self adjusting CC has been my go-to for a quick flawless face. Plus CC Creams are great for beach weather with their ease of use, look, and high concentration of sunscreen. All in all I have found my CC Cream to be my most useful thing in my entire assortment of skincare and makeup products alike. Two Other CC Brands with great rep that I personally recommend would be Dr. Peter Thomas Roth and Smashbox who I am deathly loyal to. So if you haven’t gone CC before summer goes into full swing please by all means shake a leg.
Normally I’m not one to change my shower or bath time procedure all that much. I’m pretty low maintenance in that category. The Sicilian Body Gel was a treat more than anything. Especially with my hispanic roots making elbow and knee regions a pain to upkeep. I usually apply this body gel right before hopping out of the shower. When doing so it immediately makes your skin much softer and lasts up until the next day or so. Great for a day when you don’t feel like applying lotion but just need a little extra something for your skin to drink from. Plus it does give off a nice subtle moisturized glow.
This product is one that I found to have not only great results from myself but many many others. This high concentration eye cream focuses on ridding you of wrinkles, brightening your dark circles, reducing puffiness, and all that good orbital area stuff. I have struggled with dark circles specifically and haven’t found much to actually help them at their source. After using this product almost every other day or every day for one month I have definitely noticed real results. Overall my circles are about 5-8% darker and continue to progress as I use the product. I remember noticing a huge difference when I came out of the shower one day and noticed my face almost had a completely even tone. This was shocking. So take major note.. this product is very much worth giving a try. But remember, never rub it on when you apply always dab it on lightly. It does have a slight burning sensation if you don’t apply gently.
It’s unfortunate I sampled this before I ended up getting my hair colored. But then again not so unfortunate. Even though I didn’t get to see it’s pigment protecting benefits, I did get some very shiny hair out of the ordeal. Overall it made my hair feel much more manageable in the styling process as well. My hair was very dull from being colored previously and it gave my hair a bit of a boost regardless. So I can only assume it’s color care properties are at least up to par. I have one more sample left so I intend to use it while I’m still fresh with new color.
