APRIL FAVOURITES




st ives apricot invigorating scrub - £3.99*
this is an oldie but a goodie. i'd used this scrub for years until i discovered the nspa brightening micro-derma scrub which i love, but when i received this in my #OXMEET goodie bag i rediscovered it. it's a very nice gentle exfoliating scrub, the particles in it are very small meaning it doesn't feel sandpaper-like on the skin. it leaves your skin feeling very soft and clean. for my skin type, oily, it's actually gentle enough to use everyday and helps keep oil and open pores under control. it's also compiled of 90% natural ingredients and of course there the lovely, uplifting apricot smell it has.

this is another old favourite of mine that i dug out of my stash this month. i was using the max factor creme puff powder, but as i got a tan during my recent trip to las vegas i needed a powder with a touch of colour in it to help warm up my complexion to match my foundation. this powder is really lovely. it's so lightweight on the skin, sets everything in place and controls oil throughout the day. it's a matte finish, but doesn't leave your skin looking flat or dull, just adds that finishing touch.

i brought this on a whim as i was looking for a replacement for my beloved nspa hot cloth polish, as it is apparently being discontinued, boo! but i actually really like this and i know a few other beauty bloggers, including kate from gh0stparties, that are a fan of this too. it's very gentle and soothing on the skin. it quickly and easily melts away make up, including eye make up and leaves the skin feeling clean and soft. it's very nourishing for your skin too as it contains vitamin e and antioxidants. it's also so reasonably priced and always on offer in superdrug.

as you can probably tell for the amount i've mentioned it in this post, i'm a huge fan of the whole nspa range, particularly the products that have this scent. i picked this up because when it comes to body moisturizing i'm very lazy and forgetful, so decided to make a conscious effort to do it daily. so i though a quick and easy dry oil was the way to go. this is very light, non-sticky, sinks in quickly and leaves your skin feeling silky soft. the pretty scent of this lingers on the skin for a long time too.

this is yet another old favourite i found hidden away. this is one of my all time favourite lip balms. firstly, it smells delicious, like chocolate. secondly it's so thick and nourishing on the lips. thirdly it last a very long time and even after it's sunk in, your lips stay moisturized for a long time. the other thing i like about this is the shape of it, it's the perfect shape to fit just on your lips, meaning you don't smear it all over the outside of your lips leaving that greasy film, does anyone know what i'm talking about here? anyway, all in all this is an excellent lip balm, i highly recommend it.

i've just written a post about this here, so i wont go on about it too much! this stuff is just so pretty. it's the perfect highlighter if, like me, your not a huge fan of them. it's very subtle but just adds that extra little glow to you skin. it makes you look very healthy and put together. it really is my perfect highlighter and i'm using it constantly. i just wish it wasn't so hard to get hold of!

what have you been loving this month? have you tried any of the products i've mentioned?
