March Favourites 2016

It's that time of the month again... no not that time of the month, the time for me to share what I've been loving throughout March. This month was one of the best I've had in a while, mostly because I got married, but also because there were so many amazing beauty releases and new discoveries. I've been using these products daily and I'm still not bored of them. I hope you enjoy and don't forget to share your favourites with me on here or on Instagram!



Makeup





Estee Lauder Enlighten EE Cream
This is my new go to base product. It has less coverage than a tinted moisturiser or BB Cream but has the most beautiful skin like finish. I apply it with my fingers to even out my skin tone and help me look a bit healthier. I love that it has SPF 30 because it gives me great protection during the day and it means I can use exfoliating products before hand. It is a bit pricey at £34 but to me it's worth every single penny. I highly recommend checking it out, especially if you have decent skin and you need some oomph. 



Kiko Milano Cream Crush Eyeshadow - 06
It's fair to say I'm lazy with my eye makeup. I love cream eyeshadows because they're perfect for a 5 minute smokey eye. This one from Kiko is my current fave. It's a burnt copper shade with shimmer. I apply it with my finger or a brush and blend the edges to get instant drama or a wash of colour. I find the staying power to be quite good, after maybe 5-6 hours of wear it does crease, but I don't mind the slightly smudgy look. 


Skincare




Pixi Beauty Sleep Cream
This is pretty much the only night time cream I've used for weeks. Firstly the scent just hypnotises me, it's lavender and it's amazing. I love the texture and the way it absorbs quickly but still leaves a moisturising film on the skin. It's technically an overnight mask so it leaves your skin looking even better the next day. In the morning I'm in shock at how healthy, plump and well rested I look because of this cream. I definitely need to get a back up before I run out and am left without it. (insert crying emoji)



Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturiser
I love this moisturiser! It does everything I need in the morning. It hydrates, softens, smells good and adds radiance. The citrus scent really helps to perk me up and the texture adds a nice base for makeup or if I'm braving the day bare-faced. A little goes a long way so this jar should last me a long time. If you've been looking for a new, solid day time moisturiser you should check this one out. 

Bodycare


Garnier Ultimate Blends Soothing Hydrating Lotion - Oat Milk and White Almond
Most of you will know I have eczema and very irritated, dry cracked skin. That's a nice thought isn't it?
I really struggle to find a cream or lotion that doesn't feel greasy and tacky but this one from Garnier is beautiful. It has a lovely light texture that absorbs in a couple of minutes and doesn't sit heavily on top of the skin. It has a soft scent which isn't overpowering or irritating. Compared to more expensive body creams like TBS Body Butters, this is 10x more hydrating and a fraction of the price!

Fragrance


Jo Malone English Pear & Freesia Cologne
I told you I was becoming a Jo Malone addict. This is my new signature scent. It's fresh and a bit fruity, and slightly reminds me of shloer or champagne... I've never smelt freesias so I can't say if it's true to them. It lasts for a long time and definitely lingers on the body and clothes. If you like clean, crisp scents and maybe orchard fruit smells, you will love this fragrance. Do your sniffer a favour and try it out at a Jo Malone counter. 

Thank you so much for reading guys!
