Another month has sped on by already, goodness gracious me! And it’s been a month filled with a lot of lovely products – a lot of which are relatively new to my beauty stash.
We’ll kick off with skincare, and the one and only item, the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Serum, which has very quickly become something of a skincare staple round these parts thanks to its brilliant acid exfoliation abilities. It makes my skin oh-so soft and smooth come morning and I love it. Speaking of soft (see what I did there?) I’ve become a big old fan of the Ciate Beautiful Cuticles Marula Oil which makes it so super easy to hydrate my (incredibly) dry cuticles on the go. I just pop it into my handbag and whip it out anywhere I wish, be it at work, on the subway – you name it.
Moving on to the hair, say hello ladies and gentlemen to the John Frieda Beach Blonde Sea Waves Sea Salt Spray. Holy moly I can’t tell you how good this stuff smells – like a coconutty, ocean-scented dream. It, quite literally, smells like holidays and I just can’t get enough. Plus it adds some ruddy delightful texture to my hair which goes down a real treat.
Now for the make up and the L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte 24-Hour Foundation. I have raved about this at length already in the past week, so I’m going to shuddup and just reiterate – it’s great. Seriously. So too is the Milani Baked Blush in Rose D’Oro (that’s rose gold to you and me!) which adds such a beautiful flush to my cheeks, while also giving them a lovely golden glow.
And when I really want to bump up the glow factor, I also turn to the Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow and Mood Boosting Powder, a shimmery – but not too shimmery – bronzing powder which gives that great sun-kissed look to my complexion and makes it appear as though I’ve actually seen sunshine in the past month.
Then it’s on to lips and tips; the KIKO Luscious Punk Lip Liner is working wonders at helping my lipstick to a) remain within my lips and not smudged around them, and b) ensuring my lipsticks lasts a lot longer throughout the day. Two thumbs way up. And for a brilliant budget buy this month, there is my new Claire’s Nail Polish in this great pale mint aqua colour – it’s like the perfect mix of the Essie Mint Candy Apple and the Barry M Sugar Apple. It’s a brilliant apple-y bit of perfection.
So yes, it’s been a brilliant month for beauty. Now here’s hoping April is just as ace!
