April Favourites

Sorry for not doing a favourites last month but I didn't have any new loves. This month is a different story though. I have lots of new things from the Manchester meet up goody bag as well as a couple of other rediscovered things and of course some new purchases.

The first thing I've been loving is the Skinetica* spot treatment. I was a little skeptical at first because it smells like alcohol but I'm so pleased I gave it a go. It has reduced my exam stress spots so much in a matter of days and they are almost gone after five days use. It is the best spot treatment I have tried, and I've tried a fair few.

Next up is the Dove Summer Glow Daily Tanning Lotion. I've actually never used fake tan at home before partly because I couldn't be arsed and seeing so many streaky orange girls completely put me off. I decided to give it a go though and start easy with a build up tan. This gives such a nice orange free tan and it is noticeable after a couple of applications. It can be a little sticky and I'm not sold on the smell but it's worth putting up with and using a mitt really helps. Not gonna lie, I'm a little streaky at the moment but I'm learning!

This month my Mum bought the Sally Hansen Healthy Cuticles Now Balm because both of us have dry peeling nails. I hadn't given my nails even a days break from nail varnish for about 7 months so after removing all my nail varnish I've been applying this once or twice a day for a week. My nails have stopped feeling and feel so much more moisturised already.

In the goody bag I received the Neal And Wolf Blow Dry Balm* and I was impressed from the first use. It made my hair sleek, frizz free, bouncier, easier to style and kept it's style longer. It's perfect for a polished salon finish. I used the conditioner treatment from the brand for the first time yesterday and that made my hair so silky soft so I'll definitely look into more from the brand.

A couple of make up bits I've rediscovered are the Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in 101 and the Accessorize Baked Blush in Sensational. At the meet up I asked  the lovely Zoe what her lipstick was because it looked gorgeous and when she told me it was the Rimmel one I went straight home to dust mine off. It's a dusky pink with what I think is quite a retro look.  The formula is really creamy and the citrus smell is lovely. I rediscovered the blush because I wanted to use a pink blush other than Nars Deep Throat for a change. The Accessorize blush isn't the creamiest or most pigmented blush but it gives such a pretty sheen that makes up for it. It's really different to any other blushes I own so I will try to appreciate it a bit more. That's the problem with being a make up hoarder- so much make up so little time!

What's been your favourite products this month?

  1. LOVE the skinetica spot treatment. I too was so skeptical of it, but it works so quickly and amazing...and I love that you can wear it under makeup without it looks disgusting. Like hearing your opinion about the Dove Tanning Lotion...with the brief sunshine London got I am realising I need to prep my legs!
