For the month of January, I found myself reaching for the same beauty products that have become my favorites for the month. This being my firstofficial favorites post, I’m excited to tell y’all about them.
I’ve been using these products religiously throughout the month and I cannot get enough of them.
This post will consist of favorite makeup and skin care routine I have followed for the month, enjoy!
Honeybee Gardens Pressed Mineral Powder
As a stay at home mom, I am aways on the run with my little ones and don’t always have time to apply a full face of makeup. I learned about this product from my fellow green community and decided to pick it up from my local natural store. The mineral powder comes in 5 shade colors, my foundation color is in Supernatural and it has the perfect tones of yellow and pink.
Honeybee Gardens pressed mineral foundation product description consist of:
– Talc free, paraben free, fragrance free, oil free
– Evens out skin tone leaving a natural, silky finish
– with soothing vitamin E and gentle botanical extracts to calm skin
– adjustable even coverage; never heavy or cakey
– can be worn over foundation or directly on bare skin for a radiant finish
– refines complexion and reduces shine
– use with our eco-friendly compact and help save the planet
– use with cotton puff or kabuki brush to customize your finish
Coverage: The coverage is medium to full. I like that you can build up coverage and it does not make you look cakey as described. I do not feel like I am wearing anything on my skin and it does not settle into my fine lines like other heavy powder foundations. My skin can breath with this powder and it really balances out my skins pigmentation.

The All Natural Face Kissed by an Angel Highlighter and Peachy Rose Cream Blush
Kissed by an Angel is a very beautiful shimmery sun kissed golden color that is very pigmented to use as a blush. I like to apply the highlighter to the top of my cheeks and blend upward for that extra glow. It can also be mixed along with other blush colors to add a touch of gold. I also apply the highlighter to my brow bone for that extra highlight.
Peachy Rose Cream Blush is the perfect blend of peach and rose mixed. I love to apply the cream blush with the highlighter to give my skin that perfect glow. If you have dry patches on your face, this cream blush adds hydration which is a plus while making you look beautiful.
Ingredients: Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Argan Oil, Candelilia Wax, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Boron Nitride, Oxides.
Final thought: I loved the glow these products gave me and I will continue to repurchase the colors along with the other 27 other colors The All Natural Face offers.
Wee Bee Raw Honey
I have been reading the many benefits raw honey does for your skin and I decided to give it a try. I picked up a jar of Wee Bee Raw Honey at Marshall’s. Information listed from the jar, “Wee Bee Honey is an American family owned and operated apiary, coming from generations of beekeepers, since 1892. We strongly promote ORGANIC methods of raising bees, utilizing essential oils instead of pesticides. Wee Bee is rich in vitamins, minerals, enzymes and antioxidants.”
Experience: The jar contained pollen, propolis and honeycomb. After removing my makeup, I applied the honey with wet hands and oh my goodness, this honey applies so smoothly and the particles did not irritate my skin at all. Many claim they see a difference after one application but I did not. I did not get discouraged and continued using it and after a week my skin has never felt so soft and moisturised especially in this cold winter months. This is a product that I will continue using in my nighttime routine.
Cost: Marshall’s $7.99 elsewhere, $12.00
