Fab Five: My Top 5 Must-have Beauty Products, February 2015

Hi my lovelies!

I've gathered up my top five beauty favorites for February - read on to see what I can't live without!


C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve  
C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve, $5.50



This is my lips' saving grace for the harsh winter months. I absolutely love how this smells, and how it feels! I slather it all over my lips at night, and wake up with them feeling so soft and moisturized.  I also take what's left on my fingers after applying, and rub it into my cuticles. It is a multi-purpose product that I buy time and time again.


It Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness Correcting Creme
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness, $32


This little jar of wonderful is a lifesaver for my red winter skin, and I'm sure it will be just as amazing as we work our way into warmer months as well! During the winter I have red areas on my cheeks and around my nose (not to mention pesky acne marks that visit me all year long) that regular foundation and concealer doesn't always cover completely. I decided to give It Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness a try, and I am thrilled with it, as it virtually erases all signs of redness from my skin! I just dab it on the spots I have, and away they go! I've used it both over and under my foundation, and it works well either way. This is a staple in my makeup drawer, and I am sure I will be buying jars of this until one of us is no longer around!


Avon Moisture Therapy Intensive Healing & Repair Hand Cream

Avon Moisture Therapy Hand Cream, $5

Cold winter months wreak havoc on my hands, making them dry and cracked; luckily this super thick cream helps keep those tiny cracks at bay. I'm not kidding when I say it is thick, so I wouldn't recommend it for use throughout the day as it does leave behind a greasy residue; however, it is perfect to massage into your hands right before bed, and maybe even top with some cotton gloves to get the ultimate moisturizing treatment!


 The Balm Brow Pow Eyebrow Powder


The Balm Brow Pow Brow Powder - $15


I use this in the shade blonde, and it has slowly replaced my Anastasia Brow Wiz. Don't get me wrong, I still love my Brow Wiz and will continue to purchase it, however there is just something about this brow powder that makes me do a happy dance every time I reach for it. It is so easy to use, the color is spot on for my brow color, and it looks so natural. I've used it by itself, as well as in conjunction with my Milani Brow Shaping Wax, and I get fabulous results every time!


Lorac Cosmetics Pro Palette 

Lorac Cosmetics Pro Palette, $42

 Ok, so I know this is not a new palette, but I've been living under a rock I'm a little late to the game and only recently picked this up, and - Oh My Goooodness - it is amazing! What took me so long to jump on the bandwagon?? The shadows are so smooth and buttery, and they apply like a dream in a dream. When I swatched this for the first time, I had to stop myself from rubbing it all over my body - it is that velvety! Needless to say, I haven't put this down since I bought it, and I am in love with the looks it creates. It is a definite must-have in my opinion.


That wraps up my Fab Five for February; have you tried any of these products yourself? What are your February must-haves? I'm always looking for new products to try, so I would love to hear what you're loving right now :)

Thanks for visiting - live a beautiful life!

  5. I love the Lorac Pro too - that taupe shade and the cream shade are two I use on a pretty much daily basis. I need that rose salve. My lips are dying. I feel like I apply Blistex like... every 2 seconds and I STILL crack and bleed :(
