April's beauty favourites

Hello, ello, It's monthly favourites time again, yep another month is reaching the end, hopefully May will bring sun to us, the sun starved British, 4 days this year wasn't enough!

April's beauty favourites

So without further ado let's crack on, this month I have added a perfume to my favourites post, sorry in advance, I am crap at describing scents so this is probably not gonna be that helpful but Mugler Aura, was the fragrance I bought for holiday last year, so for me always reminds me of Greece. It's quite a fresh fragrance not to sweet, it just smells Summery to me now and makes me want to fly back to Kos asap, granted this is not a particularly helpful description, but in my opinion worth a sniff next time you find yourself at a perfume counter.

April beauty favourites

A product that comes into its own, once the weather gets warmer, if you have a fringe you will know what I'm saying. Sweaty fringe is not a look I go for so the Batiste dry shampoo is a life saver, well not literally but does save me from having to wash me hair for an extra day, so yeah basically a life saver!!

Last time I ran out of moisteriser I was pretty skint (story of my life), so on a whim picked up a new in product from Garnier, Botanical day cream, and I'm glad I did, I have always been a fan of Garnier's skincare and swear by there micellar water. I got the Rose water for sensitive skin, and it is a lovely lightweight day cream. It does the job my face feels soft and smooth after use, its not greasy or heavy, I like it, and its dirt cheap to, so it's a YES from me.

Too faced sweet peach palette

Makeup wise I'm in Summer mode even if the weather isn't, so that means my Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette, has found its way back into my makeup bag, I loved it last Summer and I think this year is gonna be the same. For me it has just the type of colours I like to wear in the warmer months, with the neutral, pinks and golds, it's a great everyday palette and looks banging with fresh, glowy makeup. Which leads me nicely on to the last product Mac mineralize blush in love joy, I love this product when I want to look a bit glowy and bronzed up and it looks great with tan, as with most Mac products this goes along way, you need a light hand.

Let me know what you've been loving this month, or if you enjoy any of the products I have mentioned.
