April Favourites

Now I have to admit, putting together favourites posts is something I have been finding quite hard. I find myself loving a lot of the same products every month, so don't really see the point in posting pretty much the same content each month. That's why this months favourites is looking a little sparse, but I just thought I'd share a few new things that I have been loving - so I hope you enjoy! Also, it's a late one, I do apologise! I was going to post this on Friday but I didn't get round to it as Aaron came to visit this weekend, so here it is today for you. 

Firstly, I have been loving the Simple Kind To Skin Moisturising Facial Wash. This stuff is so so lovely, and really lives up to its name, as it really is so moisturising. I use it in the mornings before applying my makeup, and I find it gives me such a smooth clean base to get started on, as well as in the evenings to make my face feel squeaky clean. It's been especially good throughout April as I've had (and still have) a cold that I can't seem to shift, so my skin has been feeling really dry, especially around my nose, so this has been my saviour to put some hydration back into my skin!

A new purchase, and a new firm favourite, of mine is MAC Patisserie Lipstick. I've been looking for a shade like this for a while. It's a gorgeous pink (with a touch of peach) nude shade. It's a lustre finish, so has a hint of shimmer in it and feels moisturising on the lips and isn't too opaque, so it's absolutely perfect for this time of year. It's so easy to whack on and you barely even need a mirror with this one. What more could you want?

I've also been loving my Real Techniques Contour Brush this month. I have loved this ever since I got it, but this month I've just been really getting into contouring and I've been trying to improve my skills, and this brush is perfect to do just that. It fits into the hollows of the cheekbones perfectly and blends out products amazingly.

And finally, as I mentioned in my The Barely There Spring Makeup Look post, I have been absolutely loving the No7 Triple Protection Tinted Moisturiser. It blends amazingly on the skin and really gives me a fresh healthy glow, which of course is perfect for spring and summer. I'm 100% going to be wearing this to death in the next few months. If you're looking for a lightweight glowy base, then definitely give this a go.

What products did you love throughout April?

  7. I use that face wash religiously & I love it! The matching moisturiser, the rich one, is also one I will never be without and probably use too much of!
