April Favourites ♥

Is it already that time again? Really? Wow time is going so fast these days! Month favourites are one of my favourite posts to write as i get to blab on about how much i love products, which is a specialty of mine.  I've loved this month as I've been on Holiday and I've worked lots of hours. And best of all? Spring Weather has finally started! I can't explain in words how happy i am the weathers getting nicer (well, better weather than we normally have!). Spring just makes me feel like wearing brighter, bolder colours and rocking the pink and coral tones! 

This month I've been absolutely loving my Essie Nail Polish in "We're In It Together" which i received in my GlossyBox this month. Its a gorgeous light baby pink. This is only my second Essie Polish and i can already tell I'm going to develop an addiction to them! Its only the last few months I've even been doing much with my nails as before i never bothered as they always get ruined as work. This colours just too cute and 4 days in, still no chips (Which for me is fantastic as i always seem to chip my nail polish!).

Almost every day this month I've been reaching for my "Rimmel Wake Me Up" foundation over all my other foundations. I normally have a bit of trouble finding foundation light enough for me on the high street/drugstore but this foundation works perfectly for my skin. As i work very early mornings, this foundation has been a lifesaver by changing my dull skin into something glowing and pretty! Decent coverage and easily build able too!

Earlier in the month, i did a *ahem* little haul from Boots and by little i mean, i went in for one thing and ended up spending £40 and leaving without the product I'd gone in to buy! Typical me, that is. But I love Soap and Glory products, their Bath products and body lotions have always been my favourite so i thought I'd give their cosmetics line a try as I'd heard some good things about the products. They had a deal on where if you spent a certain amount you got a free eyeshadow quad and well, I'm a sucker for deals! I just can't help myself! I picked up the Supercat eyeliner pen in Carbon Black and i think I'm in love. Its beyond pigmented with a great brush that you can get any thickness line you'd like. It dries quickly and doesn't smudge and even better? The staying power. I swatched it on my hand in store at 10am and by 10pm it was still there and i had to scrub it off in the bath! Big thumbs up from me!

As I've just said, i love Soap and Glory Body Butters and Lotions but i think my favourite would have to be the "Sugar Crush Body ButterCream" for its beautiful scent. I love anything lime scented, it's my favourite scent and the fact the product works so well at moisturising my skin just makes it into one of my must have products. And its so thick and creamy, a little bit goes a long way!

And last but not least is the Garnier Summer Body Moisturising Lotion. As many of you might know i went on holiday earlier this month and picked up a very slight tan. When i came back i went in search of a "gradual tan" lotion that can help moisturize my skin and i found this. I'm extremely pale so despite the fact the bottle says "gradual and subtle" the first time i used this product i saw a difference. Not a bad difference, i wasn't orange or anything but i had a slight sun kissed colour to my skin. It smells beautiful like Apricots and that's just the icing on top of an already amazing cake to me!

What products have you been loving this month? Tell me in the comments

Lots of love,

  1. Hey sweetpea, i'm actually doing my post on this later. one of my fav products of the month has been Organix Cherry Blossom & Ginseng Shampoo and Conditioner. Amazing. I love Garnier Summer Body, it is lovely, gives you a nice glow doesn't it. Better dig mine out. I also like RImmel Wake me me up, it's a great high street product - have you tried Revlon Nearly Naked? It is great too. Thanks for sharing . Love L xx A Scottish Lass

    1. Hello lovely!
      Oooo cherry blossom? sounds lush!
      Yeah i have a glow at the moment, which is funny as i normally look like Casper the Ghost!
      I haven't tried Nearly Naked, as i tend to prefer a bit more coverage but i'm very tempted!
