Hi beauties! I haven't done a monthly favourite in ages so I thought instead of a routine monthly post I do seasonal favourites whenever I discover a nice product or I find myself going back to a specific item frequently. These are just some of the products I've been loving for the last 2-3 months or so:

Skin Products:


Kiehl's Creme de Corps - I've had this jar since last summer but really started using in late winter into spring. It's the most moisturizing body lotion I've ever tried with a heavenly scent and luxurious feel.

Biotherm Sunscreen SPF 50 - I've been blessed with skin that burns super quick and since becoming pregnant, my skin is even more sensitive. I slather this on in the am under my foundation everyday.

Origins Ginger Body Scrub - I had a sample of this before and loved it so I went for the big size jar. The ginger scent is very refreshing and the scrub is very gritty which I like. I use this once a week on my whole body.

Lush Figs and Leaves Soap - is my latest Lush love. I always have one of their soaps amongst my bath products and I'm loving the smell of this one.

Hair Products:


Macadamia Hair Mask - I actually am loving this more than my longtime hair mask love, Moroccanoil. The texture is very thick and my hair feels very soft after each use. I use this once a week only.

Bumble n Bumble Finishing Shine Spray- this was in my Sephora point gift bag and I know I'll purchase a full size one when I run out. I use this on my hair when it's slicked back and it gets rid of my flyways and holds amazingly well. Not to mention that I adore the scent (so does the hubby).

Beyond Zone Power Lift Spray - Got this from Sally's and have been getting best results with it. It's more of a foam shape than spray but I just use a bit on my roots when I tease my hair and helps minimize the actual teasing and increase the volume, LOVE!

Tresemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo - I've been washing my hair twice a week in winter and three times in summer since last year and my hair has never been healthier. This dry shampoo helps me zap the oilies in my growing bangs in between washes. I also use it when I need more texture in my hair for updos and braids.



Nars Tinted Moisturizer (Alaska) - As it gets warmer, my foundation of choice is the lighter version. This one spreads very well yet offers good coverage. I get up to 8 hours of wear without use of setting powder on my combination skin.

Lancome Rouge in Love in Violette Coquette - I've raved about this Lancome formula on my blog before so I won't repeat it. But I adore the purpley pink colour, especially in contrast with warm smokey eyes that I tend to do a lot lately.

Chanel Illusoire Iluusion d'Ombre -  aaaah this is the best single eyeshadow in my stash! It's so easy to throw on, no need for base and I just smudge the edges with my fingers and go. It's a lovely shimmery purple gray with hints of brown which goes with everything.

Estee Lauder Blackened Cocoa Kohl pencil - I'm loving this pencil as it's a deep dark brown that glides on amd it's smudgeable easily and hence great for smokey eyes. Yet it lasts on me until I take it off!

MAC Florida Cremeblend blush - Got this with one of the LE collections a few months ago and have been hooked to its beautiful rosy glow. Despite the bold shade, it looks a bit translucent and more like a flush of colour on my skintone when applied with a stifler brush like MAC 188. Great product for spring and summer.

Hope you guys enjoyed this post. Do you own any of these products? What are some of your latest favourite products in hair, skin and makeup?
