Hey doll hey!!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. Sorry I’ve been off the grid for a while. I needed to concentrate on some self care for a bit. I took a month off from playing with my makeup as well just to give me time to research some looks I want to try out and to research makeup through the ages as I want to do a makeup era series.
I took sometime to allow my body to adjust to all of my new meds, I had to take sometime to research healthier eating because I found out I have Stage 3 kidney disease, I also had my biannually Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA) treatments so that took a little down time, and I concentrated on redecorating my makeup room (a post will be coming on that later this week) which took sometime because I hand made some items for my room.
I also had been feeling extreme fatigue for many days over the past month so I needed to rest as much as I could.
I’m back now and feeling stronger (emotionally, physically, and spiritually).
I decided I would start it off with my last haul from the month of March 2021. I did not make any makeup purchased because I chose to use my beauty budget for the month of April 2021 to purchase stuff to revamp my beauty room (more on that on the beauty room tour post coming soon).
So let’s dive into the last of my March 2021 purchases… Starting with the items I did not swatch (either because it’s a back up or a swatch wouldn’t do it any good).
*As always… All products listed I purchased myself, all links provided are purely for convenience purposes to help you find the product quickly and are in no way affiliate links. The swatches are done on clean bare skin with no primer and are done in 1 swipe, pictures to the left/top are taking without flash and the right/bottom with flash*
The first 2 times are backup purchases…. #1. Good Molecules SILICONE-FREE PRIMING MOISTURIZER ($14 for $50 ml/1.7 ounces), is billed as being able to smooth, hydrate, and prep your skin for makeup with this primer that is formulated with macadamia seed oil, shea butter, and a naturally derived silicone alternative, this lightweight daily moisturizer works to strengthen, condition, and protect skin from environmental stress—all while creating a smooth, plumped-up canvas for flawless makeup application. #2. BECCA HYDRA-MIST SET & REFRESH POWDER ($39 for 0.35 ounces), is billed as an ultra-translucent, refreshing powder that dusts on like a mist and sets makeup to help extend wear. This weightless powder sets, perfects & refreshes makeup for a silky smooth, invisible finish.
The next item is Good Molecules ROSEWATER DAILY CLEANSING GEL ($12 for 120 ml/4 ounces), is billed as your new daily cleanser for comfortably clean skin. Infused with antioxidant-rich rosewater, this pH-balanced gel face wash soothes and balances all skin types. Good Molecules Rosewater Daily Cleansing Gel gently purifies skin of dirt, oil, and makeup without disrupting its natural moisture balance. (I’ve been using this one for the past month and I really like it, gentle and leaves my face feeling less tight than the HoliFrog one I normally use.
The next item is Good Molecules INSTANT CLEANSING BALM ($7 for 0.81 ounces), is billed as being formulated with sea buckthorn oil, camellia oil, and shea butter, this cleansing balm melts on contact with skin to dissolve makeup, dirt, environmental pollutants, and other impurities.

Lastly, Sol de Janerio BRAZILIAN BUM BUM CREAM ($45 for 240 ml/8.01 ounces), is billed as a Brazilian cult favorite, this brightly colored jar holds the secret to a tight and toned physique.

(I’ve been using this cream for a month and have repurchased it. It’s buttery and the scent is amazing! I get so many compliments anytime I’m slathered in this cream and it has become hubby’s favorite scent… so naturally I will be purchasing the perfume as well soon.)
