Beauty Faves For May


Are you guys team light & airy, or dark & moody?… Today I thought I’d mix it up and give my photos a slightly different feel. I’ve been editing my pictures the same way for years and thought it was time to mix it up. I also hope to be back later this week with an outfit post and chatting on creative burnout and how I’ve been recovering.

But today, I’m diving in and sharing my fave beauty products for the month of May. Yay! Recently I asked what kind of content you were loving, and beauty received a unanimous vote, and I was absolutely delighted to hear it. Skin care has always been a huge part of my life and I love trying & reviewing new / new-to-me products. Let’s jump in!


Stila Lingerie Souffle Skin Perfecting Primer - I was so excited to try this one and it’s been a lovely addition to my make-up routine. I chose the illuminating finish, however it’s also available in a bronzing effect. The primer is made of natural botanicals, and over 70% water, which gives a refreshing feel to the skin when applied. I typically add mine under foundation, or wear it on its own for a dewy look. The light-refracting pearls add a natural glow and help blur imperfections.

Korres Wild Rose Spotless Serum - This has been such a popular item in our home. Last time I checked, my hubby nabbed it and I found my serum in his bathroom! ;) The serum is made of wild rose oil and 15% vitamin C, both of which do a great job with brightening and evening the skin tone. The product is also very light and doesn’t leave much of a film, or oil on the skin, and I love that it’s vegan and cruelty-free.

Wild Rose Vitamin C Brightening 24H Moisturiser - Because my skin tends to be extremely dry, for me, this cream wasn’t moisturizing enough. But I love it anyway and typically apply a richer cream once this one settles into my skin. The more anti-aging creams the merrier + I feel like this cream has so many benefits. From the beginning, I noticed my skin was brighter and took on a healthy glow & colour. This gem of a cream also contains super vitamin c, turmeric extract and hyaluronic acid, all of which my skin is loving.

Pixi Peel & Polish - Obsessed!! This is my go-to before any event, or special occasion. My skin always looks incredible and like I just stepped out of the spa + spent my morning at the gym. Hello, glow city. Sold! Also love that Pixie products are cruelty free.

Chanel 1932 Eue De Parfum - While some find this perfume a little too heady and strong, I love it. The composition is a powdery floral with a focus on jasmine. You’ll also find notes of rose, ylang-ylang, lilac and carnation. If you’ve tried it, I’d love to know what you think!

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Lip Balm (in medium) - This is my new go-to, and come to think of it… it’s all I’ve worn since I bought it. The balm is meant to hydrate and revive the natural lip colour and it’s enriched with vitamin E and moringa butter. I absolutely love the hydration it gives my lips + I love the tint of colour too. I’m never heavy handed with my lipstick application and prefer a more sheer colour whenever possible. So for me, this is the loveliest addition.
