Emma's April Favorites
Hi everyone! Time has truly been flying these past few weeks. It feels like only yesterday I was writing about my monthly favorites for March. Even though time is passing, not even the speed of light could stop me from shopping online and finding new products to test & share with you all.
So, what’s been going on in my life to inspire this month’s products?
Unfortunately, I (along with many others) have been suffering from the dreaded “maskne.” Maskne is a new term coined from the worst year of all our lives, 2020. Maskne is acne that is caused by wearing masks all day. So, I have been doing lots of research on the best solutions and reaching out to my derma for products she recommends. In the meantime, I have been working on making new music on my CDJ, writing for all of you about home decor, and dealing with the bipolar weather of New York City. I online shop till I online drop, chill out with Scooby and Meg, and learn new recipes to cook for dinner.
Dr. Barbara Sturm Maskne Set
This set features the Sturm Nano-Silver Mask, a reusable, lightweight, and breathable anti-microbial face covering, anti-pollution drops, calming serum, clarifying spot treatment untinted, and a complimentary clarifying mask satchet. These products help to protect, soothe and calm the complexion, reduce the appearance of redness and irritation, boost the skin barrier function and provide essential hydration.
MASKC Anti Mask-ne Face Mist
Designed to soothe your skin while combating acne, the MASKC mist has a rich blend of green and black tea as well as natural-based fruit botanicals. Spray 2-3 pumps onto clean skin, pat or rub into skin gently if desired, and apply when needed or after cleansing.
Blue Light Blocking Glasses
If you happen to be staring at a screen for long periods, like me, then it’s time to buy blue light blocking glasses. These glasses help to filter out a percentage of blue light and lessen eye fatigue.
I thought laptop stands were used for only particular jobs (like djing), which is why I had originally purchased one. Now, I use it every day for work. The laptop stand has helped my posture and, oddly enough, improved my typing speed.
Impressions Vanity Touch Pro LED Makeup Mirror with Bluetooth
My old vanity mirror has left this world for a better one. Meaning it was time for an upgrade (my favorite word). So after doing some research, I purchased this mirror and am obsessed with it. This mirror has Bluetooth, so you can take calls or listen to music. It also features different lighting options, a USB port for your iPhone charger, and distortion-free mirror tilts and swivels.
Pet Food Can Cover
Here’s another invention that’s so simple yet SO necessary. Every day I give Scooby a few green beans for breakfast mixed in his kibble (we’re on a little post-holiday diet). I used to cover the top of the can with aluminum foil, which seriously sucks. The fridge smelled, and the beans were no good after a few days. My mom, a connoisseur in all things kitchen, suggested using can covers, and I couldn’t believe it. These are definitely a must-have.
3.1 Phillip Lim Kate Lug-Sole Leather Combat Boots
I have completed one of my many life missions: I have found everyday boots made from a high-quality brand, are incredibly comfortable, and are in the exact style I have been searching for.
Tangle Teezer The Ultimate Detangler
Thanks to Tik Tok, my hair has become my latest project. I recently went to the salon, chopped off five inches of dead hair, and decided to embark on a journey to achieve shiny and voluminous hair naturally. One of my favorite new products that have become my partner in crime is the Tangle Teezer hairbrush. It’s very similar to the WetBrush, which I love, plus it is one of the best brushes to use on wet hair.
Brigeo Scalp Revival Stimulating Therapy Massager
As previously mentioned, I am on a mission to achieve silky smooth locks. Part of my routine now includes massaging my scalp for five minutes with this scalp therapy massager. This massager is great for hair growth stimulation, enhanced efficacy of my other products, and it feels incredible.
