It’s time again for another monthly favorites segment article! This month I have combined April and May together thanks to finals week preparation kicking my butt during the end of April I wasn’t able to purchase many new products. Within the past two months combined and finals week behind me, I was able to gather up some great new items to review and I’m excited to share them with all of you. Here were my favorite and least favorite products of April and May.
Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer: I purchased this concealer while I was on the hunt for a concealer that had excellent coverage. I tried out this product and I loved it! I have naturally dark under eyes and when I’m tired they get even darker. I wanted something that would completely cover them and more, and I found it in this product. This concealer isn’t cakey or oily. It’s a perfect consistency and stays true to the name by being weightless and giving my face full coverage. I would recommend purchasing this product.

Cutex Advanced Removal Nail Polish Remover Pads: Unlike many products I’ve reviewed in the past, I received this product and a few others complimentary from Influenster. (If you are interested in receiving complimentary products too, check out my referral link at the end of the article.) This product contains ten nail polish remover pads. Each pad removed all of the polish from both my fingers and toes without drying out or leaving behind any polish. These work excellently and I don’t have to worry about purchasing cotton balls or bottled nail polish remover ever again.
Availability: Drugstore.com Price: $3.99
Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser: I recently tried this product wanting a facial cleanser that would refresh my face after a long day of makeup and stress. This product did the trick! Every night after I remove all of my makeup I wash my face using this cleanser and it leaves my face feeling soft and refreshed. This product clears all of the toxins from my face and I can always see and feel the difference after I’ve used it. I would recommend purchasing this product.
Availability: Philosophy Price: $36
Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil: This was another product I received complimentary from Influenster. This product can be used on your face, body, and hair, but I choose to use it on my hands. My hands, nails, and cuticles tend to get dry a lot so I apply a nickel-sized amount to my hands often. This product leaves my hands feeling smooth and soft after each use. The oil has a perfume-like scent which makes it even more enjoyable to use.
Availability: Ulta Price: $45
Philosophy The Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash: I use this wash in the shower to exfoliate my face. It has exfoliating beads in it to effectively wash and clean your face. This product has prevented any breakouts or blackheads that could occur on my skin. It leaves my skin feeling soft and refreshed after each use. The only issue I have with this product is that it has an ointment scent instead of a fresh scent. I usually lean more towards exfoliating washes that have a fresh and clean scent.
Availability: Philosophy Price: $42
Sally Hanson Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Color: I don’t paint my nails often due to the fact that I’m an impatient person, and I don’t like sitting and waiting for them to dry. I always feel helpless just sitting there with my hands laying on the table, air drying. Recently, I started using this product and I fell in love. This nail polish drys almost instantly after applying it, and I no longer have to sit and wait for my nails to dry. I would recommend this product if you dislike waiting for your nails to dry as much as I do.
Availability: Ulta Price: $4.99
Not Your Mothers Plump for Joy Thickening Hair Lifter: I also received this product complimentary from Influenster. I enjoyed the scent of this product and that it didn’t weigh down my hair. However, I didn’t see much of a difference in my hair before and after use. This product is supposed to be used on fine/thin hair and is intended to increase volume and body. As someone who has thin hair, I didn’t notice any increase in body or volume from this product. I would not recommend purchasing this product if you have thin/fine hair and are looking for a product to increase body or volume.
