I've seen a lot of bloggers posting about their most used and/or favorites for the month.....and I always find it interesting to see what others are loving at the moment!!! So, I thought I would post about my favorites and what I'm reaching for the most right now. :) I hope you guys find this interesting and not terribly boring haha....
First, I'll start with hair care. Right now, I'm loving Morrocan Oil Curl Control Cream. This stuff is amazing! I have naturally wavy/curly hair and I've most recently been trying to use less heat styling....mainly because it takes wayyy less time! I love my hair straight...but man...I have some thick hair! Blow drying already takes forever, then when I have to flat iron it...ughhh it adds a good 45 mins to my routine. So, I've been letting my hair air dry and letting my natural waves and curls go. The bottle says to apply a generous amount. Honestly, I'm really not sure what one would consider a "generous" amount lol...so I use about 2-3 pumps, work it through my hair with my fingers and then comb it through my hair with a wide tooth comb. I know I shouldn't comb my curly hair, but I do anyway because I like to stretch some of my curls out...I like it more wavy than curly and it is curlier in some spots. Then I just let my hair air dry. This controls my frizz and curls and my hair is soo soft...it doesn't even feel like there's any product in it!! It also doesn't weigh my hair down...anddd it smells wonderful!!! The bottle is 8.5 0z and I paid $30 for it. LOVE it.

Nivea lip care in a kiss of milk and honey
I've been wearing nude polish the most and I'm really liking Quick Sand by Sally Hansen.
The products that I should have passed on were:
UD De-slick makeup setting spray-it doesn't make a bit of difference for me
TooFaced Primed and Poreless makeup primer-I hate this stuff! I've used it twice and had to wash and reapply with my usual primer (Hourglass Veil Mineral primer) BOTH times. It actually turns my foundation a different color too!
Revlon Colorstay Overtime lipcolor-ewww...it peels and flakes and just feels plain gross
Revlon Colorstay lipliner in Natural-didn't like the formula or the color at all
L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black-It's so messy...I wanted to LOVE this mascara
L'Oreal Telescopic Explosion Mascara-I don't know why I bought this haha...I thought maybe it would be good for my bottom lashes or something...I hate the brush and I should've known better lol
Smashbox HD concealer-I even returned this...enough said
Boots no7 Expert Oil Control Lotion-it sounded good and it was on sale but it was an impulse buy!! It definitely isn't suited for my skin type-it broke my face out.
Sally Hansen Nail Polish Strips
