Favorite Beauty Products Lately: March 2014

I don't really consider myself a product junkie... but I love trying the newest and latest product promising to solve all my problems!  So, I don't know, maybe that means I am a product junkie?  Regardless, sometimes I'm also lucky enough to receive products to test or samples, introducing me to new things I might not have known about otherwise -- and some are totally amazing!  So I wanted to share, monthly, what items I'm really loving from the last month (or in this post's case, the last few months) and why!  Some months it might just be one thing... or like this month, since it's my first of this type of series, there is quite a bit!

So without further ado, my favorite products from the last few months:

BlowPro: I received this product in my Ulta goodie bag from KCFW and might be my new favorite dry shampoo product.  I only wash my hair about 2 times a week, and I'd really like to get down to only once, so dry shampoo is a must that last day or two.  

Jergens BB Body:  I got this smaller bottle in this month's Birchbox, and since I refuse to wear tights anymore (hello, the first day of spring was the 20th), this is THE lotion for my pale, dry legs after a long winter.  It soothes, smooths and hydrates!

Dermalogical Special Cleansing Gel: I also got this in my Ulta goodie bag and started using it right away.  I love a good, clean face wash and this one is not fussy at smells, exfolients, etc - just a good cleanser that leaves my face feeling it's cleanest!

Almay CC Cream: This product I've had for a couple of months and it's pretty much the only makeup I slap on my face consistently.  It's great for lazy people because it sort of acts like foundation, lotion and corrector in one.

Yes to Carrots Exfoliating Cleanser: I use this facial cleanser a few times a week to manage my pores and get off the dead skin.  I've had issues with other exfoliating washes in the past making my skin dry and irritated, but this one is gentle and hydrating.  I originally received this entire Yes to Carrots fascial line for this post, and I've used it all since - loving it!

Olay Regenerist: I cannot get enough of this stuff. I absolutely love the way this feels going on my skin!  It's the best daytime/pre-makeup primer and wrinkle reducer ever.  It makes my skin feel like silk and smooths lines and wrinkles fast.  I originally received this set to review for this post, and I've loved it since.

Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede Lipstick: My friend recommended this to me for how long lasting it truly is (through meals and drinks), the great colors (I love bright lips) and smooth it applies and feels.  This is great for those new to lipstick or that don't like wearing true lipstick. I love the color Muse (shown), but also comes in lighter/more neutral shades.

Revlon Lash Potion:  This is my new drug store mascara go-to.  Under $5, it lengthens and plumps all on it's own (meaning, I don't have to mix another kind/brand with this one like I do with some of my others to achieve the look).  I do have to apply carefully, as sometimes it can clump, but if it does, I use a lash brush to remove it (a toothpick would do fine, too!).

Tangle Teezer Detangling Brush: Ok, confession first. I know you're not supposed to brush your hair when wet, but I do anyways... If I don't, my hair will be a tangled mess, and combs just can get through my post-shower hair.  THIS THING (brush) is amazing because it de-tangles and smooths out my hair without hurting or breaking it.  This will also be key when brushing Nora's future hairs and Liam already has stolen it a few times to brush his own hair with it... so kid-friendly, I'd say!  I also received this in the Ulta goodie bag at KCFW (I'm feeling super lucky to have received so many awesome things)

Ok, now your turn to dish? Any super favorite new products I should try?  
Stay tuned next month for more favorites!
