April Favorites!

Well, it’s that time of the month again! NO, not *that* time! Time to tell you my most used beauty items last month!
When the weather turns warmer, I live in flip flops and comfy capris. That means, I need to ramp up my self tanning routine! I’m quite fair, which can prove a challenge in finding a sunless tanner that doesn’t make me look all oompah-loompah-ish.

I’ve recently become hooked on Beautisol self tanning lotion and Tea Tan Glow. The review of Beautisol Tea Tan Glow that I received through iFabbo, can be seen here

I love the Beautisol tanner for the color (nice olive toned golden tan), the fact that it lasts and when it finally does fade, it doesn’t get patchy. Another huge plus in my book, is that it doesn’t smell like other self tanners. It has a fresh scent, thanks to it’s odor eliminating technology. I don’t know how Beautisol did it, but it DOES NOT smell like baked skin! It dries very quickly as well, which is pretty nice!

Next up is Essie’s Apricot cuticle oil. I have very dry hands and cuticles. I normally go for cuticle butters (I like Badger, Burt’s Bees and LUSH) but this comes in handy for daytime use. It is an oil, but it’s a dry oil. It doesn’t smudge and leave greasy finger prints all over like the cuticle balms/butters do.

Finally, a surprising discovery! I had a $10 gift card to Victoria’s Secret, so I grabbed this Sparkling Citrus Lemon & Coconut body cream up on a whim. I don’t tend to be crazy about most of the scents from VS. This scent is very light and layer-able. That’s important to me, as I don’t want my lotion and perfume clashing! This body cream has a nice light scent, and moisturizes pretty well!

What were your April favorites? I’d love to hear about it in the comments below!
