Here I am yet again wondering where on earth the time has disappeared, another month has left us behind & if I hadn't been organised & jotted down products that stood out to me during April I'd be sat here wondering what my favourite products had been! My mind is failing me at the moment, I've got so much going on I'm not even sure of the day sometimes, I've been using my iPhone more than ever recently to document to-do lists, appointments & other important things, I'd actually be lost without it!
I ended up having my hair cut short last month, I'm now sporting a long bob that I wear curly most days. I'm obsessed with the fact a couple of spritz of Toni & Guy Sea Salt Texturising Spray over my hair adds texture & gives my hair a beach wave kinda vibe instead of intense curls. I quickly add in some curls with my straighteners, then use the T&G Sea Salt Spray all over & scrunch my hair I like that it doesn't leave my hair feeling crispy & full of product & it's also got a really nice scent, salty but fresh so it's different but a good different!
Two skincare items I've been loving are the Origins GinZing Moisturiser & the Garnier Express 2-in-1 Eye Makeup Remover. I spotted the GinZing moisturiser at the Cosmetics Company store at Cheshire Oaks when I visited with Stephanie and there was just no way I could leave it sitting on the shelf after wanting to try it for so long. The gel consistency is really refreshing, it makes a great base for my makeup & the chocolate orange fragrance is the best! I'm a huge fan of the Garnier Micellar Water so I bought the Eye Makeup Remover when I noticed it was on offer. Most days I wear liquid eyeliner & quite a lot of mascara & often wake up to panda eyes in the morning even though I cleanse my makeup away. There always seems to be bits of mascara that cling to my lashes or eyeliner thats being stubborn so by adding in another way to remove eye makeup I can feel confident that every single trace has been wiped away! I find the Garnier Eye Makeup Remover to be extra efficient at getting rid of all my eye makeup which is why I love it a lot!
Only one makeup item in this monthly favourites, the MaxFactor Creme Puff Blush in Lovely Pink. It's super pretty & works well as both a highlighter & a blusher. I've also heard these Creme Puff blushes are amazing dupes for the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush, they certainly look really similar anyway but I've not had the privilege of trying the Hourglass ones! I don't know why I didn't include the other shade I have in Seductive Pink as I've been loving them both in equal measures!
I couldn't decide which nail polish to include as I've been wearing both Barry M Speedy Quick Dry in Eat my Dust and Essie Cute as a Button non-stop! Even though they are basically complete opposites, one being a powder blue shade & the other a bright coral colour they both look so nice on my nails that I've been alternating them every few days!
For a change I've included a couple of non-beauty items, my beautiful marble-esque necklace from Next & a jar of Lucy Bee's Coconut Oil. I've been wearing the necklace to work nearly every day but also on my days off too! It's pretty rare for me to want to wear something I consider part of my Uniform on days that I'm not working, but I've been wearing really simple outfits & adding the necklace for detail! April was the month I really got into Coconut Oil & discovered it's full potential, it was one of those things I was apprehensive to try but I'm glad I ended up giving it a go. I've more than one reason why I love Coconut Oil & I'm planning on doing a full post soon but I like how I can use it for so many different things, even Tilly Pug gets a spoonful on her din dins!
