March Wish List

Originally, I meant to post about my February favorites today but the weather has been so overcast that I wasn’t able to take any pictures yet. So instead I decided to share my March wish list with you a bit earlier than usual. This time around it’s a fairly short one, partly because I would like to save money and partly because not much has been catching my eyes over the past few weeks. I’m ever the more excited about the few products that did make it on the list this month.

March Wish List 2

The Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Fruit & Seed Oil Blend (1 fl oz, $36) quickly rose to the top of my wish list when it popped up on various beauty blogs and being hailed as a miracle worker to heal acne scars. While my overall skin condition has improved greatly over the last couple of months since I revamped my skin care routine, I still have quite a few acne scars that just don’t want to fade and are hard to cover up. Rosehip oil contains a high concentration of retinoic acid which is used in pharmaceuticals like Accutane to treat acne. This oil also contains a high concentration of carotenoids, Vitamin E, and essential fatty acids which have various benefits for the skin. I’m always weary of skin care products that promise the world but this one does contain a host of beneficial ingredients so I’m looking forward to giving it a shot.

Ever since the January Julep Maven box I’ve been in love with silk finishes on nail polishes. I begged Julep to release a light gray silk finish nail polish but it doesn’t look like this wish will become a reality anytime soon. Naturally, I’ve scoured the internet for other companies that produce nail polishes with a similar finish. When I came across the Deborah Lippmann polish in Harem Silks From Bombay (0.5 fl oz, $20) it was like the heavens opened up and I could hear the angles sing. Not really, but you get the point. The color is stunning and the silk finish is spectacular. $20 is a bit steep for a nail polish in my book but since this would be my first Deborah Lippmann purchase I might as well get a color that is as extra special as this one.

Last on my list is the Aesop Control Gel (0.2 fl oz, $23). I don’t often get deep, cystic acne – usually my blemish are of the tiny, annoying mini-bump kind. While I do hate these spots, it’s the major breakouts that really suck. I had one of those a few weeks back and I wish I had already known about the Aesop Control Gel back then. Recommended by no other than Caroline Hirons, this spot treatment fights pesky zits without stripping or dehydrating the skin. This is weapon that I definitely need in my skin care arsenal for the next time that my skin decides to fight me. And who knows, maybe it would even help with my regular spots.
