Secret Destination Collection -- Paris Romantic Rose

I've been a long time fan of Secret Deodorant, in fact it was the first brand of deodorant I ever used, well I recently came across the Secret Destination Collection Paris Romantic Rose line which caught my attention, enough so that I purchased the Invisible Solid Deodorant and their Body Spray.

The deodorant is amazing, not only does it feel good under the armpits, it actually keeps my armpits dry all day long, even in the hottest days (80 degree weather this Spring so far) it has keep the sweating to a minimal amount plus no funky odors either! I also love that it doesn't stain my clothes unlike so many other deodorants I've tried! The best part is the scent, it smells so unbelievable it's a bit hard to describe. The best way to explain it is very subtle and has a sweet rose smell, it's definitely floral but has a sweet almost like a Hawaiian scent as well.
Their Body Spray is an interesting product, I love using it right out of the shower (in the mornings) just spray it all over my skin (arms & legs) quickly rub it in for an all day lasting scent. The spray dries almost immediately, does not feel sticky, in fact it's very soothing to the skin! It does help eliminate any odors; I take public transportation and you wouldn't believe how much it can stink sometimes in there, so I love wearing this knowing that I smell so fresh all day long! The scent however doesn't quite match up to the deodorant in terms of strength differences, because the body spray is a lot stronger and has a very obvious floral scent. But I do believe they work well together the light sweet scent with the stronger floral scent, which is why I am so glad I purchased both the Body Spray and the Solid Deodorant!

Overall I am very pleased with both of these items, I love the way I smell from the morning to the evening, 10 hours later! There's no touch up needed with the deodorant and maybe 1 or 2 uses with the body spray throughout the day, I usually reapply on my arms/wrists just to freshen up! For less than $4.00 each, these products are amazing and I highly recomend them! If you are interested they have a few other scents, so make sure you check out the Secret website for more details! These can be purchased at any local drugstores such as Walmart, Target, CVS and more!  Have you spotted this collection at your local drugstore? Have you tried any of their other scents?

My Current Beauty Favorites

As many of you know I've been using a lot of products that I've accumulated over the years and in the process I have revisited a lot of old favorites, some of which have become my current beauty favorites that I wanted to share with you all today.

Ponds Dry Skin Cream - this has been a favorite of mine for years, but after I stopped using it last year I am glad I have revisited because it is amazing especially during the winter months. Even during the Summer time I like to use this skin cream at night time for that extra boost of hydration and it simply makes my skin feel super soft and smooth!

Prestige Primed & Ready Eye Primer - this is one of the best eye shadow primer I have ever used, it's really affordable and very comparable to Urban Decay's Shadow Primer Potion. It's long lasting, doesn't crease, and allows shadows to show their true pigmentation!

Elf Mineral Infused Face Primer - another favorite that I stopped using but am glad I revisited it recently. It's comparable to Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer and in fact I prefer the ELF over the high end one! It feels very smooth on the skin, allows my foundation to glide on, and does a great job in oil control particularly my t-zone.
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser - I've been loving this concealer, it blends beautifully, hides dark spots, doesn't crease, blends into the skin, the positives go on and on! I have the color neutralizer which can be a bit too light for me, so I actually just purchased a darker color from the Ulta website (can't wait to receive it and try it out)!

ELF Mascara Primer - I never knew how important a mascara primer was until I used this one! It helps separate my lashes, lengthens, and helps my mascara apply smoothly without any clumps. I do plan on purchasing more because this has truly been a current favorite and I don't see myself using a mascara without this primer!

NYX Cosmetics Dewy Finish Setting Spray - When I ran out of my Urban Decay Setting Spray I wasn't sure if this NYX spray would do the job but so far it's been a favorite and I've been using it every single time I do my makeup! I love using this when my skin seems dry and when I use powder just so I don't look as dry or cakey. This setting spray does a good job in giving me a nice dewy look without looking oily!

NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder - I love this bronzer and I can't believe I totally forgot about it and stopped using it! It is a completely matte bronzer and I love how it blends super easily, doesn't look muddy like some other bronzers, and is long lasting as well!

So there you have it, my Current Beauty Favorites! Do you have any beauty products that you simply cannot stop using? What are your current beauty favorites?
