May Favorites! (Warning: A lot!)

Hey everyone,
so this is my first post on monthly favorites & I'm excited to share them with you all. I don't normally do monthly favorites because I never really have that much favorites. This month I have a good amount of favorites, so here they are:

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Lacey Lilac:
For the past month or so, I've been loving pastel colors, especially in nail polishes. I had no problems with the consistency of this nail polish, the application was smooth & easy. If you haven't seen the swatches of this nail polish yet, you can find it here.
Price: $2-$3

Bench Facial Absorbent Paper:
If you've read a few of my posts or my "About me" tab, I do have oily skin and blotting throughout the day is a must for me. These blotting sheets work very well for me. It does what it says & one sheet is all I need to blot my whole face. I'm also giving one of these away in my summer giveaway so don't forget to join.
Price: $1.99

Softsoap rich moisturizing Shea Butter hand soap:
I love this hand soap! I'm already on my second bottle. It smells so good; it has a sweet scent & I love sweet scents. The thing about me is that I have bad habit of forgetting to put on lotion. As most of you know, moisturizing your body is so important, especially your face, neck, & hands because that's where you can see the signs of aging the most. So since I forget to moisturize my hands, let alone my whole body, this hand soap is great for me. It moisturizes my hands while washing them at the same time. So if you ladies are like me, definitely grab a moisturizing hand soap.
Price: $3-$4

Bath & Body Works cucumber melon anti-bacterial moisturizing hand lotion:
As I mentioned earlier, I have the tendency to forget to put on lotion. This is another great product that keeps my hands moisturized. I was actually looking for a good hand sanitizer to throw in my bag & take with me wherever I go, but I ended up finding this. The fact that it's an anti-bacteria & a moisturizer in one really lured me into getting it. Oh, & it smells great!
Price: $5.75

Gillette Venus Breeze 2 in 1 shave + gel:
This 2 in 1 razor plus gel glides smoothly on my skin. It doesn't cut my skin at all. In my photo above shows the cartridges/refills next to my Gillette razor; I actually threw away the packaging of my razor already.
Price: $10

Degree Sexy Intrigue Body Mist:
I went through so many bottles of this; this is by far my favorite scent. "It's a seductive fragrance with a touch of jazmine, rose, and subtle hints of vanilla." -Degree
Price: $4.99

Carmex original moisturizing lip balm:
This is the only lip balm that I've tried that actually helps treat my chapped lips. I also love the fact that it gives that tingly menthol feeling on my lips.
Price: $1.89

Revlon Super Lustrous (creme) Lipstick- Pink in the Afternoon:
I just really love the way this looks on my lips. It applies smooth & creamy. You can see my swatch of this lipstick here.
Price: $7.99

Wet n Wild Mega Eyes Creme Eyeliner:
This is such a nice creamy eyeliner that applies on smooth. It's also very affordable compared to other gel eyeliners. It also came with a small angled brush, so that's a plus.
Price: $3.99

Revlon Grow Luscious mascara:
You can read my review on this mascara here.
Price: $7.99

E.L.F. eyelid primer:
This primer helps my eye shadows look vibrant & stay on for hours. For its quality & price, this is a must have.
Price: $1.00

Maybelline Dream Mousse Concealer:
My review on this product here.
Price: $6

Neutrogena oil-free makeup remover:
This removes makeup as well as olive oil does but without the blurry vision.
Price: $10

L'oreal True Match super blendable makeup:
This gives medium to full coverage. I use it both as a foundation and concealer because the coverage is just that good. I have oily skin and this dries matte on my face. Also, a little goes a long way.
Price: $10

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder:
I use this to set my liquid foundation & since it's compact, I take it with me in case I need to touch up.
Price: $8


Clinique acne solutions clear skin system:
I'm not going to go into much detail with this because I will be making its own separate review on another post. This system basically saved my skin. I have sensitive acne prone skin so a lot of skincare products break me out, but this really works for me. I strictly haven't used any other skincare products on my face because I wanted to see thorough results. I didn't want to affect the effectivenes, if that makes sense.
Price: $26

Okay, so that's all for the cosmetics part of my favorites. Now onto my monthly favorite snacks:

Sunsweet Ones California Prunes:
Eversince I saw the commercial for this, I wanted to try it. Those people made it look so delicious. I finished this whole thing in a day. I'll be sure to pick up another one when I go to the store again.

Cadburry Dairy Milk with Crunchie:
This is so delicious! My boyfriend introduced me to this bar & I fell in love. Haha! In the photo, it looks like it has nuts but it's actually honeycomb pieces. I need another bar.

Right now, I'm trying one of their other flavors:
Now onto my favorite song of the month:

Beyonce - Broken Hearted Girl:
I know this came out last year but I only heard it this month & fell in love with it. When I listen to the lyrics, I've personally felt this way in the past. It' a lovely song.

That's the end of my May favorites. Thank you so much for having the patience and taking the time to read my blog. If you have May favorites, please feel free to share. & if any of you lovelies want me to make a more detailed review on a certain product here, let me know & I will post its own separate review.
