Monthly Favorites: May 2021 Edition!

 GeorginaBT May favorites 2021.jpg

 

 

End of May already, BIC – hope you are all getting as much sun as we have in the Bay Area. 😊 Now that the month is almost up, you know what that means: it’s time to share our monthly faves! Recently I have revisited and slowly revamped my personal self-care routines, and I feel that my current favorites reflect that. Now, the rest of the Beauty Insider Community and I would love to know: what beauty products have you been reaching for most this month? All skincare, hair, makeup, fragrance, and wellness recos welcome. πŸ‘€

 

Here are my May favorites:

Re: Monthly Favorites: May 2021 Edition!

@GeorginaBT The Tower 28 Beauty BeachPlease Lip + Cheek Cream Blush Power Hour must look great on your skintone!  Those blushes (and their bronzers!) are amazing and some definite favs for me as well :).

Re: Monthly Favorites: May 2021 Edition!

Aw, I gotta snap a photo next time I throw it on @CookieGirl1 πŸ˜Š Always love a terracotta shade when it comes to blush or lip product. 

 

Need to try out their bronzers next! 

Re: Monthly Favorites: May 2021 Edition!

@GeorginaBT  Great choices!!! I also always use my Sephora Collection rose quartz roller!!!

Re: Monthly Favorites: May 2021 Edition!

@ather YES, it's so good! I keep mine cool in the fridge (which I believe @WinglessOne suggested to me a while back? 😊) and it feels great on the skin. I've had it forever and would use it for periods at a time, but after buying a gua sha I'm more inclined to incorporate it into a regular facial massaging routine.

Re: Monthly Favorites: May 2021 Edition!

@GeorginaBT I'm really loving my T3 Lucea ID 1” Smart Straightening & Styling Flat Iron with Touch Screen .  It glides through my hair so easily, and leave is straight, sleek and shiny.  I just need to figure out how to use the touch interface component more easily!  Happy I found it!

Re: Monthly Favorites: May 2021 Edition!

Oooh, I'm always intrigued by good reviews on hair tools @greeneyedgirl107! Glad you're liking this one - I'm a regular flat-ironer so I'm taking note. πŸ‘€

Re: Monthly Favorites: May 2021 Edition!

I really wanted to try this but wasnt sure it was worth the hype.  Thanks!

Re: Monthly Favorites: May 2021 Edition!

@GeorginaBT   I have that Glow Recipe cream but haven't tried it yet; glad to hear it's a nice one.  It seems so thick and luxurious!

Re: Monthly Favorites: May 2021 Edition!

@Ispend2much6 Oh yeah, of all my faves this month I think this is my holy grail! I've been a fan of how Glow Recipe's watermelon skincare smells for a long while, and was so happy to find out they incorporated the watermelon goodness into a body lotion. It's a creamy consistency and absorbs quickly when I apply it after a shower. Love that it has hyaluronic acid built in πŸ˜Š

Re: Monthly Favorites: May 2021 Edition!

@GeorginaBT that Tower cheek must be good stuff; it seems to be a huge hit here! May Favorites are all about sharing the (beauty) πŸ’• love!

Spoiler

Skincare loves this month include the Tatcha The Dewy Skin Cream Plumping & Hydrating Moisturizer 2.5 oz/ 75 mL (πŸ₯° @sprocketta), Violette_Fr Boum-Boum Milk, and Leahlani Tropical Enzyme Cleansing Oil in Pamplemousse. The cleansing oil is extremely gentle and has a sweet grapefruit scent. The Boum-Boum has been solid in terms of fulfilling its 3-in-1 toner/serum/moisturizer claim. I am going to decant a small spray bottle for my purse, as it will make a great little travel companion!

The wand on the ILIA Mini Limitless Lash Lengthening Mascara After Midnight is like having all of my favorites blended into one; it’s so easy to use and lengthens & separates beautifully. Finally, the Violette_Fr Avec Amour Perfume Oil has the most unexpected scent. Initially I could only detect a bit of play-doh, but as I’ve worn it, rubbing my wrists together to warm it up, it takes on a soft, warm and subtle coziness. Maybe even a Commodity Velvet Extra-Light or hint of nag champa, without the musty-ness. It’s not the kind of perfume others might notice, unless very close to you. I appreciate that very much, since there are many who are sensitive to fragrance, even in my own family. 

 

Re: Monthly Favorites: May 2021 Edition!

Love these faves @eshoe! The Tatcha moisturizer really seems to work well for so many folks. The Ilia mascara is amaziiiing β€οΈ

 

And yes, the Tower 28 blush is a great formula, with really pretty shades to pick from! It wears for quite a while on me, mask and all. 

Re: Monthly Favorites: May 2021 Edition!

Well, it sounds like I need to choose a shade in those blushes ASAP, @GeorginaBT πŸ‘πŸΌ Tower 28 Beauty BeachPlease Lip + Cheek Cream Blush Golden Hour looks like nothing I have so it might be a good bet!

Re: Monthly Favorites: May 2021 Edition!

@eshoe One of these days (when I run through some of my other moisturizers) I really want to try the Tatcha The Dewy Skin Cream Plumping & Hydrating Moisturizer because I feel like EVERYONE loves it and I'm definitely having FOMO.

Re: Monthly Favorites: May 2021 Edition!

@CookieGirl1, I can’t believe you haven’t tried it yet! It is definitely worth a sample, just to see how it looks and feels on your skin. But I know how it feels to be overrun with skincareπŸ˜† 

Re: Monthly Favorites: May 2021 Edition!

@eshoe Yeah, I'm the last one on the planet to try it but I'm trying so hard to be good about finishing what I have first.  Sometime when Sephora offers it as a point perk I'd love to try it, though πŸ™‚

Re: Monthly Favorites: May 2021 Edition!

I was thinking that, too @CookieGirl1 - or if there is a Tatcha set of minis with another product you liked. 

Re: Monthly Favorites: May 2021 Edition!

@eshoe  The ilia limitless mascara has been my yearly fav!! And the tatcha 😍 great choices!!

Re: Monthly Favorites: May 2021 Edition!

@ather YES!!! I remember talking about it with @quspork too! I just love how multidimensional it is.

Re: Monthly Favorites: May 2021 Edition!

@eshoe  Oh, that perfume sounds great!  I'll have to check and see if any of the perfume sample sites are offering it.  I wonder what makes the "play doh" scent; I've encountered it in many varied products.

Re: Monthly Favorites: May 2021 Edition!

Isn’t it bizarre, @Ispend2much6@Shosh85 just mentioned the Melt blush has a play-doh scent. I know that I have used sheet masks that remind me of it, too. I wonder if it is due to a type of preservative, as I can’t imagine it being an intentional scentπŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Re: Monthly Favorites: May 2021 Edition!

@eshoe  This isn't the same thing, I'm sure, but I can always tell when my wheat kernels or rice has gone bad when it starts to smell like crayons.  It's a similar scent.
