Monthly Favorites: February 2021 Edition!

monthlyfavesFebruary.jpg

 

As we march toward the end of February (see what I did there?) it’s time to salute our favorite products of the month! You know the drill. 😉 This month, I set out to do a major purge of my beauty collection, given all the products I’ve accumulated while in quarantine, but instead ended up with a bunch of new goodies to add to my ever-growing stash. Does anyone else’s beauty shelves “magically” replenish themselves after a big clean-out sesh? I know it’s not just me… I’m always in good company here on the BIC!

 

Here are my February Favorites, including some newbies, some new-to-me BIC favorites, and some trusty shelter-in-place standbys:

@eshoe Omg that Hourglass sparkle. I totally have that, yet it still made me gasp in your photo! 🎇🌟

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2021 Edition!

It is so pretty in person, isn’t it @AlexBT 🤩 💖

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2021 Edition!

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2021 Edition!

@adrianamancini  I need to try the wave spray!!

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2021 Edition!

@ather It smells heavenly! I cut my hair shorter recently, so I will try using it again to create beachy waves. When you try it, let me know what you think! Have a wonderful afternoon ❤️

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2021 Edition!

@adrianamancini  Thanks I’ll definitely let you know. I’ve been using Bumble and bumble Surf Spray 4 oz/ 125 mL  and Bumble and bumble Surf Styling Leave In 5 oz/ 150 mL  I like the leave in gel but I don’t find the surf spray is helping. I’ve heard good things about Ouai wave spray! 

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2021 Edition!

@ather I heard about those products! I am sorry you don't like the surf spray; I am happy you like the leave-in. OUAI Wave Spray 4.9 fl oz/ 145 mL does not have salt as an ingredient, leading me to try it. 

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2021 Edition!

@adrianamancini  Do you use the ouai the second day to refresh the style?

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2021 Edition!

@ather Yes- I tend to use that or OUAI Texturizing Hair Spray 4.5 oz to freshen up my hair.  

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2021 Edition!

@adrianamancini @ather I like the OUAI Texturizing Hair Spray 4.5 oz to give my hair beachy waves. Do you find it does that for your hair as well? 

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2021 Edition!

@adrianamancini What is your hair type?? You mentioned the Ouai Wave Spray (sorry can't get the name right atm!). Looove the smell too but it did nothing but make my hair look greasy & didn't produce waves. I'm wondering if I misused it or something. Im 2a/2b wavy and usually don't have trouble getting curls/waves! (Except now bc of quarantine my hair is so long its losing it a bit but that's an easy fix ... in the future! LOL!) I wanted to love that spray but just didn't. 😭

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2021 Edition!

@BaseballJen I had the same result when using the OUAI Wave Spray 4.9 fl oz/ 145 mL. My hair follicle is wavy, but when I style it, it is pin straight. I sprayed it in my hair, scrunched it, and tried to let my hair produce waves. I also tried using a diffuser (folding my hair into the diffuser like an accordion) after spraying it on my hair. I usually don't air dry my hair, so I used it on dry hair (I read it can be used on wet or dry hair). I think that's why I had issues using it on my hair. I was bummed because I love the smell 😭 But, with summer in a few months, I will try it again to create beachy waves.

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2021 Edition!

@adrianamancini The wave spray has become my new air-dry holy grail this past year! Working from home has really elevated my no-heat styling game. 🙂

I've been eyeing the Dew Drops! Might have to take the plunge soon...

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2021 Edition!

@AlexBT You will love the dew drops! My favorite way to use them is as the last step of my am skincare routine to create a “no-makeup” look 🙂

 

I am also super excited to try out the wave spray again! Do you usually apply it on wet or dry hair?

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2021 Edition!

@adrianamancini Yes! My current "recipe" is Christophe Robin Luscious Curl Cream with Flaxseed Oil 5 oz/ 150 mL + a LOT of wave spray, scrunched into my hair while my head is upside down, fresh out of the shower wet. Usually I'll squeeze some excess water out first with my Aquis Waffle Luxe Long Hair Towel, but for the most part, still wet! And then I just let it do its thang... results definitely vary (ha!), but it works for me in quarantine!

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2021 Edition!

@AlexBT Loved reading your "recipe!" I heard great things about Christophe Robin products, so I will have to check out their curl cream! 

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2021 Edition!

@adrianamancini @AlexBT the smell of the OUAI Wave Spray 4.9 fl oz/ 145 mL is what made me splurge on ultimately purchasing the OUAI North Bondi Eau De Parfum 1.7 oz/ 50 mL when it first came out :).

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2021 Edition!

@CookieGirl1 Same here! I love their North Bondi fragrance!

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2021 Edition!

@adrianamancini What do you like about the Gucci Mascara L'Obscur 1 Eve Black? I have a mini and I am excited to try it!

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2021 Edition!

@eshoe Gucci Mascara L'Obscur 1 Eve Black volumizes and lengthens lashes, so it is like using two mascaras in one. I find that it makes my lashes look fanned out, and I instantly look awake after applying one coat. This mascara is also buildable- you can create natural or dramatic looks by adding more coats. I also have sensitive lower lashes, and this is the only mascara I can use that doesn't irritate them. 

 

Long story short- you will LOVE IT!

 

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2021 Edition!

Ooooh love that it is gentle on the eyes, @adrianamancini! That is a plus. And fanning the lashes, yes please🤩

  • That COSRX bottle is empty: I just ran out, so I need to go open a new bottle now.
  • Why yes, I did rotate through all of these in February.
