We went to Colorado and I piled together all my samples for the 5-day trip. Going from Florida — one of the most humid states with subtropical temperatures –to a moderately dry and cold state, I knew my normally oily skin would react differently then how it does a home. So, I looked for anything that would be a good detox mask for the oiliness, but also to combat the recirculated air and junk that is on the plane.
In addition to skin changes because of travel, I also was lucky enough to wake up with a tear duct infection on St. Patty’s day. So I was advised by my ophthalmologists not to wear eye makeup for a minimum of three weeks while using the medicine in order to let my eye heal. So the remainder of the month I went sans makeup all over my face. My view was why bother if I still look tired without any makeup around my eyes. With that in mind, flawless skin became my No. 1 priority. I looked at every item I was using and what I had on standby and found that it was time to change up my routine slightly. I was no longer going to need makeup removing items and switched for more gentle everyday face cleansers. But I wanted my weekly face mask to be doing super duty. I purchased one new herbivore mask and I grabbed a tried-and-true philosophy mask that I know I get results with after just one use.
With a month of no makeup, I wore a lot of lip-gloss and balms to still give a slight hue to my lips without drawing too much attention. My and my Marc Jacobs Pink were staples in my handbag all month.
For movies, we went and saw King Kong and Beauty and the Beast. I was surprised to say that King Kong was phenomenal. I truly enjoyed the storyline and the different plot twists. With Beauty and the Beast, it was visually stunning but I could have done without the added songs and change in the plot line. I think the original song lineup was just enough. The additional songs were just too much, making the movie too long and not adding that much to the story.
That’s all of my favorites for March. Sorry the list was so short.
