APRIL FAVOURITES




lush prince charming shower gel - £4.75
i know this is a bit cheeky of me to include, because it was limited addition for valentines day, but only this month did i find it hiding in one of my bathrooms draws. i have a serious hoarding problem, i think a general cosmetics clear out is in order! anyway, back to this shower gel. i have to admit, at first sniff, i really wasn't sold in it at all! i thought it smelt quite tart and just a bit off. but i wanted to give it a go because it reminded me of my beloved rose jam, so i brought a small bottle. and i'm hooked on it now! it's very uplifting and almost has a sort of sherbet smell to it if you ask me! i also like that the scent lingers on the skin after using it. it's got marshmallow root, vanilla and pomegranate juice in it, they all work very well together to make a sweet, fruity smell shower gel.

the body shop white musk sun glow eau de toilette - £???
this is again a now discontinued product, which makes me so sad as this is one of my all time favourite perfumes and this is the last bottle i have, boo! i've featured this on my blog before a long time ago! this is just the perfect perfume for me, one of my favourite scents is musk, but this is made a bit lighter and summery smelling with hints of peony and lemon in it. it's so pretty, lasts a long time and i love it. i'm so gutted you can't get hold of it anymore, please bring it back body shop!

i tend to chop and change my moisturisers quite a lot, as i'm yet to find the perfect one, but this one comes pretty close! as the name would suggest, it's tailored for oily skin, it helps keep grease and breakouts at bay. it's a very light texture that sinks into the skin quickly, leaving it smooth and hydrated, but not tacky. it makes an excellent base for make up and it definitely helps hold the oil at bay beneath my make up. i think i'll definitely be repurchasing this one!

i don't think it's a surprise to anyone that i've included this in my favourites, i've raved about it on my blog and i'm pretty sure it's been in a monthly favourites before! i think this is my all time favourite mask, it just works wonders for my skin. it draws out any nasties, helps absorb excess oil and heals breakouts. if you have oily, spotty skin, i can't recommend it enough! it smells minty and refreshing too! if you struggle with body acne, you can also use this mask on that too.

a bright, coral lipstick? i know, i'm just as shocked as you are! if you've been reading my blog for a while now, you'll know my go to lip colour is a pinky/mauvey colour and my preference for a coloured lip is either something on the red spectrum, or dark purples. but, as we're now going into spring/summer (allegedly, someone needs to tell the british weather that!) i thought i'd better attemtp to inject some colour into my make up, enter this lipstick. i found it in my stash and remembered how much i loved it a couple of summers ago. i still can't believe how well it actually suits me, i often have trouble wearing bright lipsticks, they wash me out or look odd! but this ones a winner, it's a beautiful matte texture and, as the name suggests, it last for hours without needing any touch ups!

this little brush was sitting unused and a bit unloved among my other brushes. that was until i was watching one of gracie francescas videos the other day and she used this to blend in her under-eye concealer. and oh my, it was amazing! one, it blended it in SO quickly and two it looked amazingly flawless, no creasing or anything! so ever since then i've been using this brush for concealer and it is now very much loved! as i said it blends everything seamlessly and gets the job done quickly and efficiently.

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