I love a favourites post but I often feel mine are kinda boring because I don't have new products to use each week which is why I just do them whenever instead of religiously every month! Heres my round-up of a few of my most loved products from the month of April...
Antipodes Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream* has got to be the nicest moisturiser I've used for a long time. My evening skincare routine is quite simple at the moment, I double cleanse, tone & moisturise as my skin is having a bit of a funny spell I don't want to overload it with a million different products. The Avocado Pear night cream is not only nourishing but also soothing, I always wake up with fresh, dewy feeling skin in the morning.
I'm a big fan of the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer & rarely steer away from it as I swear by it but change is good sometimes & being a beauty blogger I do love to try out new makeup whenever I get the chance. I've been using the Soap & Glory Kick Ass Concealer* which is a duo creamy concealer with a setting powder. The left side of the pot is the under eye brightening concealer & the right side is to conceal blemishes & imperfections. I can really notice a difference when I use this to hide the dark circles around my eyes, it has a nice consistency which blends easily to conceal the dark tones. I was a little nervous to use it as it's quite orange toned & I'm so pale I was convinced it would be the wrong shade for me.
When I spotted the Essie Retro Revival Collection in Boots, I knew I wouldn't be leaving the stand empty handed, I chose Cabana Boy a beautiful pearl nude shade. This is so pretty on my nails, I've hardly worn any other colours & I've had so many compliments on it too. It's such a dreamy kinda shade with it's pearlescent finish & as you might already know Essie are my all time fave nail polish, they apply so well & resist chips for ages.
LUSH Bubblegum Lip Scrub has been my complete life saviour recently. As I mentioned above my skin is being quite strange, it's been quite oily which is new for me as it's usually dry, however my lips have been drier than ever. They have been so chapped & sore, they looked really really awful, I've been applying lip balms more than ever & trying to increase my daily intake of water. The Bubblegum Lip Scrub is so so good, it removes dead skin gently yet efficiently leaving my lips feeling a whole lot better. I can't resist the taste of this either, a little sweet treat for my lips.
Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh Blush Eau De Toilette is the newest addition to my Marc Jacobs perfume collection, I'm obsessed with the pretty bottles & lovely fragrances, one day I shall own them all... Blush is the perfect fragrance for Spring, it's fresh, light & slightly floral making it ideal for the warmer weather (ha, it basically snowed here in Liverpool last week but hey we are meant to have a heatwave this weekend!!) as it's not at all overpowering. It's beautifully delicate & feminine & has been the only fragrance I've reached for this month.
