These are the products I polished off in April!

1. Shiseido Bio-Performance Advanced Super Restoring Cream: This is not the first time this product has been on the blog (see here). I've been using this product as my a.m. and p.m. moisturizer for the last 4(!) years - how is that even possible?! I love it so much. It keeps my super dry skin super hydrated. 

2. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation: The bloggers and the magazines and the best seller lists aren't lying - this foundation is simply the best. Worth every penny - a half pump goes a long way but I love a full pump for super sheer coverage on my face, neck, and ears. Sounds weird, but its the best way to apply your foundation. A bottle lasts me nearly a year, and I wear it every. single. day. of my life. The bottle in the above photo literally looks crazy because I scrape out every drop with a q-tip at the end there. Haha!

3. Lush Helping Hands Hand Cream: I accidentally discovered this stuff when a former coworker left an unopened container in their desk after they quit, and I nabbed it (because I am insane, and that's the kind of coworker I am). But I am so glad I did, because what I lack in office shame, I make up for in new beloved beauty products (go with it, ok?) This the best hand cream I have ever used. It's thick and feels so nice and keeps hands so moisturized during winter months and after harsh office bathroom soap. The texture is more like a thick silky lotion and less like vaseline like other heavy duty hand creams. 

4. St. Ives Oatmeal and Shea Butter Body Wash: This is weirdly my favorite body wash. I started buying it in when I was like 23, because it was cheap and I was poor (a perfect early 20-something combo). But I've stuck with it because the lather is so good. Like I am in a body wash commercial every time I use this stuff. The lather! The suds! Can't beat it! (Kinda funny how I ragged on Aveeno in this post for smelling like oatmeal when the scent of my body wash is.... oatmeal.......)
