April Beauty Favourites

I cannot believe April is already over and we are now into May. Summer is just around the corner! April was a month where I tried tons of new products and they’ve quickly become apart of my monthly favourites. 

I’ve decided to start adding in a few other items other than beauty related products. These will include articles of clothing, accessories and my current favourite songs!

So without further ado, here are my April favourites!


Elf – Aqua Primer Mist – For starters, I love facial sprays/mists. Whether it’s a setting spray or a mist infused with antioxidants, it has my name all over it. This product is no different, infused with vitamins and cucumber this is very refreshing on the face. I use this as a primer for an extra layer of hydration. My only problem with this facial mist is how horrible the nozzle is. When you push down on the nozzle the product comes out too fast and way too harsh. It ends up leaving droplets of product all over my face. Overall, I still would recommend this facial mist!


Yes to Coconut – Ultra Light Body Spray – As I have mentioned before in previous posts, I have extremely dry skin. Doesn’t matter what season of the year we are in, my skin is just always dry. This stuff however works wonders! I’ve been using this several times daily as it seems to be very hydrating. Also, the fact that is comes in a spray bottle makes the product itself even more worth it in my books! This body lotion will leave your skin feeling super hydrated with a non-greasy feeling. 


Life – Face Masks – For all my Canadian readers out there, these face masks are available to you. You can find these at your local Shoppers Drug Mart and they are super affordable! ($1.99 ea. or 3 for $5) They have a variety to choose from varying by skin type and certain skin targets (hydrating, brightening, detoxifying, etc). My two favourites have been the Purifying and Detoxifying masks! I will usually apply a face mask 1-2 times a week. Definitely a hidden gem at the drugstore! 


NYC – Smooth Skin Loose Face Powder – I finally gave this product a try thanks to KathleenLights, as she constantly raves about it. I dust this translucent powder all over my face to set my foundation. It keeps me looking shine free all day! Also, this product is incredibly inexpensive and does exactly what it’s supposed to do. Definitely worth the hype!



Garage – Mesh Panel Hoodie – This has quickly become my go to hoodie! With it’s fun mesh paneling detail running from sleeve to sleeve, this hoodie combines the best of sporty comfort and cutting edge flair. I’ve been wearing it with ripped jeans or with leggings and sneakers for a more comfortable look. Available in both white and black!


Black Velvet Choker – I bought this from Forever 21 a couple months ago, so I unfortunately could not find it on their website any longer (I believe I payed around $10 for it). The past month I have been getting a ton of use out of this choker! I use it to dress up my more casual outfits for a fun element of surprise. You could say my choker obsession is starting to take off! 



My taste in music is really all over the place. I listen to everything from Pop, Country and even down to Rock. This month I have been loving: 

Song Artist 
Stay Zedd & Alessia Cara
Lights Down Low MAX & gnash
Beautiful Freakshow Dean Brody
Craving You Thomas Rhett
