I don’t do favorites posts every month, but sometimes it just feels right and now is one of those times. My April 2015 Favorites are varied in type of products. I have included everything from lipsticks to baby sunscreen. Yep. Random. So let’s just get right into it.

The Rituals Zensation Organic Rice Milk & Cherry Blossom Foaming Shower Gel is amazing. I have reviewed these Rituals shower gels before (long time ago) on my blog, but I have been loving it again recently. Get it online!
Unique gel-to-foam technology. Squeeze a small amount of gel into your hand – contact with water transforms the gel into a rich, relaxing foam. Zensation combines Rice Milk, a natural ingredient that nourishes the skin and leaves it silky soft, with Cherry Blossom, the Japanese symbol of purity. Enhance your showering ritual with Zensation shower foam by following with Magic Touch body cream to experience the same fragrance sensation.
Since moving to the state of Washington I have found myself outside allll the time. If I am outside then so is my daughter. Her skin is so pretty and perfect and I don’t want her to fall prety to sun damage so I have been slathering the Aveeno Baby Continuous Protection lotion all over her. It boasts a coverage of Broad Spectrum SPF 55 which is awesome. I love Aveeno because it doesn’t bother her sensitive skin and in fact, it has oatmeal in it to soothe! YASSSS! Get it at Target!
Makeup removal sucks but I have been loving The Gnarly Whale Make-up Remover to get the job done. I have been pouring a little onto a little cotton pad and then swirling it all over. Sometimes I go in with a makeup wipe first and then to make sure I got everything I use this as a follow up. It is truly amazing. Get it at Urban Outfitters!
The Tula Exfoliating Treatment Mask is UH-MAZE-ING. In case you aren’t familiar with the brand, check out my Tula Probiotic Skincare review. The Exfoliating Treatment Mask is really fantastic because it is a dual phase treatment that provides both a chemical and physical exfoliation. Lactic acid works to gently peel away dirt and debris while Bentonite Clay and microencapsulated beads containing jojoba oil, volcanic sand and Vitamin E work to gently slough off old, dead skin cells to reveal a polished, hydrated, glowing complexion. And I love that it is blue. Also, the packaging is to die for! Get it at tulaforlife.com!
The Besame Cosmetics Brightening Vanilla Face Powder is awesome. You may (or may not) remember my review on the Besame Brightening Violet Powder, so go visit or revisit that one for sure. The Brightening Vanilla Powder is the exact same AMAZING packaging, but has a few small differences. Vanilla Brightening Face Powder is a velvety soft powder for all skin types that features a yellow tint that works to control redness. Ideal for light to medium skin, it can be worn around the eyes to brighten dark circles, or overall for a velvety soft matte finish. It’s perfect for wearing over foundation or alone, and it is formulated with vitamin C, squalane, and lecithin to soothe and hydrate skin while leaving a subtle, vanilla fragrance.
The powder is so finely milled and is absolute perfection. It does what it says and it feels good at the same time. You can now buy Besame products at Sephora.
A product that I am obsessed with, YES OBSESSED, is the Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil. I am so sad because I think it was a limited edition product that is no longer available, but I am mentioning it because I NEED THEM TO MAKE THIS FOREVER. I had no idea it wasn’t being made anymore until just now when I was going to look for a link. WAHHH!!
Last but most certainly not least is the Gerard Cosmetics lipsticks in Berry Smoothie and Rodeo Drive. HELLO PERFECT MAUVE PINK SHADES! Both of them are gorgeous for all year long, but especially during the warmer months. They are both bright enough to stand out and become go to shades. I also feel like they are neutral/wearable enough that anyone can pull them off. You can find these on the brand’s site.
I know that got into being a lengthy post, but these are a lot of products I have been loving and I hope you get a chance to try out some of my April 2015 Favorites!
