April Favourites

Here are the products I really enjoyed using throughout April. Some were new finds in April, and a few are things I've had for a while.


Skincare

Dr Organic Organic Moroccan Oil - Facial Oil
Holland and Barrett

This facial oil was my staple this month. I used it almost every night as my 'moisturiser' step. It instantly gives you a lift of moisture and leaves the skin glowing in the morning. It is crammed with essential fatty acids, which have worked to give my face a boost. Full review posted.


Indeed Laboratories - Hydraluron
Boots

I finally picked this up in April and I'm so glad I did! After the rave reviews and strong influence from Caroline Hirons, I knew it was time to try it. The hyaluronic acid boosted and hydrated my skin straight away. It will give you beautiful, plump, perky skin. I will never be without it. If your skin is dehydrated, just try it! 


Nivea Lip Butter - Coconut
Boots/Superdrug

Also a new find recently. This is one of two new additions to the lip butter range from Nivea. It really helped soothe and soften my lips, which were still recovering from winter. Smells beautiful, so if you love coconut, you will love this.

Haircare

Lee Stafford Argan Oil - Ultra Hydration Lotion
Boots

This is a leave in conditioner that I found a couple months ago but have been loving it recently. A lot of products can feel heavy on my hair but this doesn't. It's lightweight texture but still rich and hydrating. I apply it to towel dried hair and leave it to absorb, when my hair is dry it feel lovely and soft.

Body/Hands

Garnier Hand Repair Cream - with maple sap extract.
Boots/Superdrug

A couple of months ago I got pompholyx eczema, which left my hands feeling sore, dry and itchy! I found this hand cream and it saved my hands. It is rich without being too heavy, soothes, softens and moisturises. Has a very light scent.

Fragrance

Zoella Beauty Blissful Mistful - Fragrance Mist
Superdrug

I have been loving this through April. It has been my day to day fragrance, perfect for transitioning into spring and summer. The best way to describe the scent is to say, to me this a inexpensive dupe for Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume. One to try for those that like, light floral scents without being too strong.

Make-up

Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation - shade 0.5
Debenhams/Selfridges

I've had this for a long time and forgot about it. Then early April I tidied my make-up draw and found it and used it the next time I did my make-up. I fell back in love with it. It gives a lovely medium coverage, natural finish, on my normal-combination skin. The shade is a bit too dark for me but blended in well it's not noticeable. A good foundation for spring and summer.


Lush Skin Tint - Feeling Younger
Lush

Everyone knows I'm obsessed with having a glow, and this gives the glowing from within look. It's a cream highlighter that I've been using under foundation on the high points of the face, it's really good if your skin isn't looking great because this can cheat, giving you healthy looking skin. Great for coming into spring and summer.This shade is a pearlescent white. Try out in store to see the colour on your skin.


Eylure Brow Pencil - No10 Dark Brown
Superdrug

This has become my new go to product for my brows. It gives them that perfect balance of groomed and polished but strong enough. It's not too hard but not soft/waxy, perfect medium texture. Colour works great on my dark brows. A great option for fuss free gorgeous brows.


Urban Decay Make-up Setting Spray - Chill
Debenhams/Selfridges

Finally this month, I have been loving this setting spray from Urban Decay. It's prefect for those who need/want a more fresh, hydrated finish from a setting spray. Which is exactly what I want for this time of year. Thank you for reading.
