May Loves

I can't believe the year is already half way through!! I still feel like it was just New Year's Eve...then I go outside and think 'Freak me, it's HOT' and I remember it's June.

In an effort to be a more efficient blogger, here are my May favorites, right on time! 

 Virgin Coconut Conditioner, 17 Wild Curls mascara, Nivea Mattifying Day Care cream, Essie Good to Go top coat, Secret Platinum Protection deodorant, Illamasqua Glint & Writhe Bronzing Duo 


I bought this conditioner in Manila last year. It's got pure coconut oil in it and it really makes my hair soft. I've been using it as a leave-in conditioner and loving it! 
It's summer now and starting to get very, very hot and humid over here (averaging 38 degrees) It's time to switch to my super-strength deodorant. I've used Secret almost religiously since high school. The Platinum Protection range is my summer favorite. Unfortunately, it can be hard to find here so I have to stock up when I see it!

I bought the Nivea Mattifying Day Care Cream because my skin was dry, but not as dry as it was a few months ago. This doesn't make me break out, despite being thicker than I anticipated. It has an SPF of 8 (I believe) but I don't like relying on sun protection that is mixed in with creams or makeup, so I apply my regular SPF 30 on top of it. I'm not too sure of the mattifying effects, but this doesn't make my face any shinier than usual.

17 Wild Curls Mascara is super cheap (25 dirhams at Boots) and it does a great job. It doesn't provide the most dramatic results, but it really defines my lashes. I can't say much about 'curls' part because I didn't notice that my lashes were curlier than usual, but it does lengthen them quite well and doesn't smudge.

Essie Good to Go quick drying top coat has been a life saver for me. It smoothes out any brush marks on my nails and helps my nails dry super quickly. I love using this because I can paint my nails right before I leave the house and they'll be dry to the touch by the time I'm out the door.Which is great if you have time-management issues like I do!

I've been using this bronzer duo a lot, recently. It's great for day time because there aren't any glitter flecks in it, so you just get a gorgeous, shimmery glow. The bronzer is just dark enough to really bring out my tan and it is very long lasting as well. I don't have to worry about sweating through it, which is surprising for a bronzing powder!

What were your favorite products last month? :)
