Julia’s April Favorites

julia-favoritesL’Oreal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Blow Dry It Quick Dry Primer Spray ($4): Cover damp hair with this sweet spray (the scent goes away once your hair is dry, which is unfortunate for me who loves it and fortunate for those who don’t) and blow dry as usual. Except better, faster, stronger, in the words of Kanye. Well, mostly just quicker. It actually does shorten your drying time + it has heat protectant which is something I always forget!

AHAVA MINERAL BOTANIC BODY LOTION – PINEAPPLE & PEACH ($28): There is no scent I like more than summer. I hoard Bobbi Brown Beach oil and perfume (review here), am constantly ordering monoi oil (full breakdown here) and even wear sunscreen all year round just because I love the smell THAT much (or this on point scent works too). So AHAVA’s lotion has earned a new spot in my summertime sadness smell section of my beauty products. It’s fresh but not overly fruity and just a tiny bit sweet. My love for this brand has no bounds, honestly I’ve never tried anything from them I didn’t adore.

L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara, Blackest Black ($7): When someone notices your new mascara, you notice. The first day I used it my friend (who also works in beauty) told me my eyes looked “like a totally different shape”. But it’s actually wild how crazy good this mascara is. I haven’t had an OMG mascara moment like this since Benefit They’re Real, 4 years ago!

W3LL PEOPLE Bio Brightener Stick ($33): Inspired by this great video from Deepicam, I started using the last step (the highlighter) in my daily routine because it’s so fast and easy to use and leaves the perfect pearly highlight behind.
