February Favorites

Seriously, how is it already time for February Favorites? For most of the month, I was keeping my makeup quite minimal, so most of my favorites of the month are new skincare discoveries. I've got a couple old favorites in here as well that I've fallen back in love with.

Anese Hydrating Body & Hair Elixir* | I have a full review of this beauty here. It's the only fragrance I've been using all month - I absolutely love the marshmallow pine scent, as it's so unique. It's also not a super strong fragrance, which I like, so I know I won't be causing my labmates to suffocate throughout the day. Remeber you can use the code KELSEYANESE to get $5 off as well!

Pixi Rose Oil BlendI mentioned that I picked this up in my Beauty Haul, and it's been love at first use. It smells and feels divine - it definitely feels so much more luxurious than the price point lets on. I've been reaching for it almost every night at the end of my skincare routine because it leaves my skin so hydrated and radiant.

Skinfix Daily LotionI had been toying with the idea of using a thinner lotion rather than a body butter for awhile, and I finally took the plunge and picked up this baby from Skinfix. It contains really lovely oils, like sunflower, grapeseed, and jojoba, so while it's super lightweight, it delivers lasting hydration. My secret weapon against dry winter skin has been applying this straight out of the shower onto wet skin, and I haven't had any of my usual itchy leg dilemmas since.

Valentia Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask* | I was sent this mask to review early in the month, and again, it was love at first use. It's got the loveliest ingredients, like hyaluronic acid and sea buckthorn oil, so it's wildly hydrating. It truly lives up to its name, and it's one that I've been continuing to use multiple times a week.

MAC Strobe CreamThis is an old favorite - I think it first appeared in my July Favorites last year. I've been trying to ramp up my skin's glow this month to combat that winter dullness, so this has been essential. It's quite moisturizing and gives the skin the most beautiful glow. I've been mixing it into my moisturizer in the morning to give my skin a much-needed radiance boost.

rms beauty Living Luminizer | Speaking of glow, I've fallen back in love with this little wonder. This pot of cream highlighter is actually good for the skin, containing mostly organic coconut oil, and gives you the most believable sheen of them all. There's no glitter at all in this, so it's the perfect pick for daytime.

NARS Dolce Vita Lipstick & Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Ex-Girlfriend LipstickIf you read my Sheer Nudes post, you'll know I've really been into a more low-key lip this month. These two have been on rotation all month long, as they look so flattering on and go with anything. Dolce Vita is a little rosier, so it's perfect if you're going for a more "flushed" look, and the UDxGwen lipstick is a stunning pinky nude with fine pink and golden shimmer that really enhances the lips. I can't pick a favorite of the two.
