April Favorites: Beauty

April Beauty Favorites - Pai geranium thistle cream YULI cell perfecto pm me skin fuel Badger sleep balm Sweet Almond oil cold pressed Dr Alkaitis eye cream Missha bb cream OCC lip tar neutral trio Shu Uemura lash curler - Joelle Chan make-up artist Calgary Canada I skipped out my on March Beauty Favourites because I had so many things I was trying from my Fresh Faced haul, I didn’t have a set routine. This month Spring is finally showing her pretty face – kinda. It still snowed like mad, but at least it’s warming up and we had our first spring shower about a week ago – woohoo for green grass! Sweet Almond oil body moisturizer - natural skincare cosmetics - April Beauty Favorites - Joelle Chan make-up artist Calgary Canada The brunt of winter is gone (hopefully, you can’t be too sure with the winter we had this year), so I don’t feel inclined to slather Glysomed all over myself after a shower. Over the last little while, I’ve been using Sweet Almond oil as a body moisturizer and it’s been great. I used to use Jojoba oil but I thought I’d switch it up. I’ve loved using oils for the last 4 years, and I wonder why I didn’t discover it sooner. It’s inexpensive, hardly has a scent, goes on smoothly, and does NOT leave you looking like a disco ball. Believe me if you have never tried oils, they really do absorb quick and leaves your skin looking alive (as opposed to drab and parched). I find that they perform better than most body lotions.

Badger Sleep Balm lavender bergamot - natural skincare cosmetics - April Beauty Favorites - Joelle Chan make-up artist Calgary Canada I bought Badger’s Sleep Balm in March. It smells wonderful and my husband even likes it. I apply some under my nose, behind my ears and on my wrists before I go to bed. It’s not made to make you sleepy; it’s relaxing and gives you a nice smelling journey to dream land.

Missha Perfect Cover BB cream No 27 in Algenist bottle - Korean skincare makeup cosmetics - April Beauty Favorites - Joelle Chan make-up artist Calgary Canada I’m still using up my Missha Perfect Cover BB cream. The same tube now for over 2 years. Technically I should have tossed it, but I only use it on myself and the way it’s packaged keeps it relatively air tight and sanitary. Eventually I couldn’t pump anything out of the tube so I cut it up and found loads of product still inside, unable to be extracted by the pump. Thankfully I’m a bit of a packrat and I scooped the rest into an empty and sanitized Algenist deluxe sample bottle. I have a bit of an issue saving bottles, containers and boxes, but see? It comes in handy once in a blue moon!

Dr. Alkatis eye cream - natural organic skincare cosmetics - April Beauty Favorites - Joelle Chan make-up artist Calgary Canada Yuli Cell perfecto PM - ME Skin Fuel - serum acne combination skin - natural organic skincare cosmetics - April Beauty Favorites - Joelle Chan make-up artist Calgary Canada I’m really happy with my Dr. Alkaitis organic eye cream purchase and will write a full review on that soon. I use Yuli’s ME Skin fuel as a moisturizer during the day, and her Cell Perfecto PM at night. More on those to come in the future.

OCC Lip trio Neutral - Memento Hush Clockwork - natural organic skincare cosmetics - April Beauty Favorites - Joelle Chan make-up artist Calgary Canada JoelleChan_april-beauty-faves-08 I bought a few things this month that I’m excited to try, such as the OCC Lip tar trio in Neutral from Sephora’s 15% off sale at the beginning of the month, and a Geranium & Thistle Rebalancing cream from Pai. I had to replace my eyelash curler and treated myself to a Shu Uemura. It curls your lashes faster than you can snap your fingers. It is that efficient and painless.
