April 2015 Favorites

Hello Fellow Goo Horders!

Look at me bein’ all up on the Blogage this week! Awwwwww Yeah!  (I’m so hip and street, yo!)

Today, I have a round up of Favorite Things of the last few weeks. I wasn’t trying to have the theme, it just happened.


Equate Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover –  File this find under: Mom know Best! A couple of years ago, I found this in my mom’s medicine cabinet. This eye makeup remover rocks the hizzouse! It removes Benefite Push-Up Liner without even thinking about. I know that no matter how much eyeliner and mascara I pile on, it’s ok. It all will be dissolved and cleaned away without any fuss. We have pretty sensitive eyes, this ish doesn’t sting at all!This is a dupe for Neutrogena. Neutrogena is a dupe for Lancome’s Eye Makeup Remover. (You know the one, it’s a 100 point Sephora gift right now.) The Lancome one is $39.00 for 6.8 ounces. Neutrogena is about $7 for 5.5 ounces. This Equate one from Wal*Mart is $3.97 for 5.5 oz. There’s no question. I have been thru 3 bottles over the years. I know my mom has been through several bottles. This is a HG item.


e.l.f Zit Zapper Acne Treatment – Even though I’m a woman in my……. Let’s just say, I remember when phones had cords and you had to get up to change the TV channel. I still get acne, granted it’s just random homies that show up ever so often. I’m so glad that e.l.f makes this product! I have several tubes around my house. One tube by my bedside, one in my office and one in the bathroom. Why not, they are $2! I’ll apply it a couple times in a 10 minute time period and forget about the spot. By the next day BOOM, it’s like 85% better. e.l.f always has huge sales, too. I stock up then. Heck, I’ve been known to pick them up at Target and Wal*Mart. *It seems that they might have changed the name to: e.l.f. Essential Acne Fighting Spot Gel with Aloe*


St. Ives Blackhead Clearing Green Tea Scrub – Another find from KathleenLights from YouTube. I use this in the shower. It’s gentle. It feels good. It makes my skin feel clean and soft. I really think that this is helping with blackheads (in conjunction with the Atzec Healing Clay Mask). The scent is minimal and clean. I got the travel size at Target. I’ll be going back for the full size. I’ve been having issues with strange allergic reatcions to things. This has not bothered me once!


Pink Sweatbands – You are probably wondering why these are on a beauty favorites blog, right? I have a secret. I hate washing my face. I hate the water dripping down my arms. I HATE IT! I had an Ahhhh-Haaaa moment last week. Sweatbands!  This is a game changer for me. Done and Done!


The Collection by Chesapeake Bay Candle in Blood Orange – I have a favorite VoluSpa Candle in the scent Goji Tarocco Orange….. and it’s a special occasion burn, since it’s a pricer candle. This Blood Orange candle has some of the same scent notes. It’s almost the same cost as my tiny fancy candle but 4 times the size. It’s normally $12.99. I got it on sale for about $10 something and used by RedCard. This candle can be burned in Summer… it’s such and bright and clean scent. Full of citrus goodness.


Replica Beach Walk by Masion Martin Margiela – YoungWildandPolished on YouTube talked about this.  And this was a splurge. This perfume makes me smile. It smells like my early summers in Maine and hanging out at our pool in my teens. It’s the best Coppertine coconutty goodness, salt air, somehow clean air and sun. I’ve been a little obsessed with this, spraying randomly around my house….. and on me.  If you want to smell like summer, go smell it at Sephora. To try it out you can get a rollerball. I found my big bottle on eBay, cuz dood it’s tres cher, mon ami!  Here are the notes: Bergamot, Pink Pepper, Lemon, Ylang Ylang, Coconut Milk, Heliotrope, Musk, Cedarwood, Benzoin. 


Did you figure out the theme? Clean. For some reason clean smells and skin cleaning things have been on my radar.

What have been your favorites? Let me know!

Stay Awesome!
