Monthly Favorites: February 2024 Edition!

Monthly Faves February 2024Monthly Faves February 2024

I hope this month has been treating you well, BIC, because this year we get an extra day to celebrate our February favorites! 💞 I’ve been feeling a little adventurous lately and testing out some new (or new-to-me) products, as well as some new shades of products and brands I already know and love. I’ve been manifesting sleek hair, smooth skin, and natural-looking makeup this month, and I think I found the right combo of products to get me there – or at least try! 😉

 

Here are the beauty goodies I’ve been reaching for the most this month:

 

 

Take it away, Community! Tell us what your favorites have been this February. Be sure to tag any products you mention with the “#” symbol (hair, makeup, fragrance, wellness, skincare, etc.)!

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2024 Edition!

I’m wondering that too @itsfi . I used some other drugstore spray oil years ago and can’t recall brand but it was tricky and I stopped. This looks so nice! 

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2024 Edition!

It has a nice, light scent to it too @Sunnysmom - fresh, clean, maybe (?) ever so slightly, floral. 

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2024 Edition!

@itsfi Amazing Favorites for February. I can't beleive how quickly the month went by!

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2024 Edition!

@Mellmars1185, it seems like days fly by! Thanks! I’ve been shopping my stash more and it’s been a lot fun. It’s also a given me a chance to really put some new-to-me treats, like a few of this month’s favorites, to good use. 😊 

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2024 Edition!

@itsfi  How is today the 29th already? Or as my little guy calls it leaf day 🤣 soooo I see so many new items here!!! I was curious about the Rare beauty and sounds like an awesome product!! What is Hanni!!! I need to check it out asap!! And the Ami Cole looks beautiful 😍 great favs!! 

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2024 Edition!

Oh my gosh, your little guy is so cute @ather🤗 I wasn't so sure about the Rare Beauty by Selena Gomez Find Comfort Stop & Soothe Aromatherapy Pen 0.16 oz / 5 mL when I first picked it up at the beginning of the year, but it's such a good product to have on hand for a little pick me up or a destressor. It isn't going to make all the stuff that weighs on me go away but it does help to make me feel a little less ... tense? Overwhelmed? Both? I know that the physical act of dispensing the product, rubbing my palms together and then inhaling the scent from my palms gets me into the mindset of breathing in and out more deeply. Even if it's for a short period of time, it's a good reset. 

 

Oh, definitely check out the Hanni Water Balm Custom Hydration Body Moisturizer Mist 6.76 oz / 200 mL - I can tell my legs are less dry since I've been using it. It's really easy to use too and absorbs really quickly. The packaging has it's pros and cons - love the sturdiness and sustainability aspect of it being a glass bottle, but that also means I have to be extra careful with it so it doesn't fall off the counter or out of hands. The spray / mist on it is good too - convenient, though there are, of course, times when I have to angle it a certain way so I can get product out - holding it upside down isn't going to work. 

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2024 Edition!

@itsfi  You always take the best pictures! 📸 I have not tried those caffeine eye masks yet! Will definitely have to now! I really loved The Crème Shop Caffeine Masquerade eye mask, but I think it's discontinued now? - so I need to find a new favorite 😉 Do they have a scent?

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2024 Edition!

Awww, thank you @Shosh85 for saying that; very kind of you. I'm trying to find what works when I don't have natural sunlight, or when it's gloomy outside. 

 

These caffeine eye masks are fabulous! There's a very, very soft coffee smell; it doesn't last long, but it's nice little treat, fleeting though it may be. Ohhhh, I loved those masquerade eye masks from The Creme Shop. These are not as large as TCS ones - I did appreciate how they covered such a large area - undereyes and part of the cheeks, areas where I am prone to a lot of dryness. Sadly, like many good masks, it has been discontinued. 😫 The caffeine eye mask from The Creme Shop, the coconut ceramide mask from Too Cool For School and the honey banana (or was it banana honey?) sheet mask from Secet Key - all faves and all discontinued. Le sigh

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2024 Edition!

Great faves @itsfi , the Ami multistick is slept on IMO, so I am glad to hear you and hibiscus hit off this month.

 

Also, desperately awaiting the arrival of the Harlem Perfume Co., hoping their speakeasy candle becomes available.

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2024 Edition!

@danielledanielle  If you have a local Nordstrom, check their Home department for Harlem Candle Co. candles. Some scents are available at Nordy’s site, but my local store also stocks 4 or 5 in-store, including Speakeasy, Josephine, and Langston. Now that I’ve smelled those in person, I’ll probably buy Langston next. (Only reason I left it behind is the order I’ve got coming direct from HCO in a couple days. I’m trying not to buy too many candles til I’ve finished more of my existing ones.) 

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2024 Edition!

Oooh, thank you for the tip @WinglessOne 

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2024 Edition!

@danielledanielle, thank you. I’m actually surprised more people don’t know about the multistick - one of the best ones around, in my opinion. Their shade selection is limited but hits some major shades. I can see adding a few more to round out the range.

I am hoping that there is a sampler candle set available, maybe a mini, or I could do a full size. They have a really nice selection. 

 

@missjeanie @ather  here’s what all the shades look like

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2024 Edition!

@itsfi Thanks for enabling I mean… swatching for us! I do enjoy a great berry blush!! — added to list!! 

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2024 Edition!

Thick lines of the blushes for you @missjeanie

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2024 Edition!

Lol... @itsfi I've got one on my list!  I'll do some lines when my sale purchases roll in!  

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2024 Edition!

@itsfi  Oooooo these are beautiful!!! Thanks for sharing the swatches! 

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2024 Edition!

@ather, thank you. I haven't had a ton of multisticks but these apply beautifully. The formula is less dry than the Westman Atelier.

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2024 Edition!

@itsfi  How does it compare to the Merit blush? I know the Merit one isn’t a multi stick. 

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2024 Edition!

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you on this one @ather! I would say the Ami Cole is between the Westman Atelier and Merit blushes in terms of consistency. Merit's is also more sheer in its application. Ami Cole is more pigmented in color but can be adjusted to be more sheer or vibrant. The Merit applies more sheerly initially but can be built up to yield more color. Consistency-wise, Merit will be lighter, more ... bouncy, if that makes sense. I'd say Ami Cole wears longer, in large part due to it not being as light or sheer as Merit. Merit has a wider range of colors. For blush, I like them both. For lips, I find the Merit one to be better hydrating for me to wear - the AC I love the color but I stick to it as a stain or just blot it on lightly and add a gloss over it. 

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2024 Edition!

@itsfi  Sounds like they both are good!! Longer wear time is nice for sure! 

Re: Monthly Favorites: February 2024 Edition!

Which Merit blush(es) do you have @ather?
