This one took a lot of thinking about! It doesn’t seem that long ago that I was doing my March favourites!! You know the drill by now, so here we go!
Dark Angels Cleanser by LUSH – It’s no secret that I have become a HUGE fan of LUSH and I always have a stock of their bubble bars. My ‘go to’ cleanser is their Angels on Bare Skin which can only be described as divine and I always have a fresh face mask in my fridge for when I need a pick me up. I have always had a problem with blackheads on my nose and nothing seems to shift them – even pore strips are useless! But this month I purchased Dark Angels, which was recommended to me by my sister. Now, I have previously avoided this cleanser because it is supposed to be used by people with more oily skin, which I thankfully do not suffer with but it’ such a good exfoliant that I decided to try it just on my nose and chin. AND ITS AMAZING!!! It really made a huge difference to my nose and lots of those pesky blackheads disappeared. The surface of my nose is a lot smoother and although you can still see some blackheads, the difference is immense. And I am super happy with the result! So now I use a mixture of both Angels to help me get the perfect combination for my skin!
I used to be a big Soap&Glory fan but I started to stop using their products when I discovered LUSH. But then I saw this in Boots recently and just had to get it! It’s the (wait for it….) Total Drama Clean, 5-in-1 ‘Magnetizing’ Micellar Make Up Remover. It’s promises to cleanse, tone and smooth skin and remove make up with ‘no rubbing required’. And it doesn’t lie. Micellar water is supposed to be one of the best things to remove make-up and I have tried several types in the past. But this one is by far the best. It takes very little effort to get rid of even the blackest smoky eyes and the natural cucumber juice and peach fruit extracts make it smell amazing! Literally good enough to drink! I think this one is going to stay in my skincare routine for a long time!
So I have to make-up products for you now and they have both been used lots over the past month. The first is Bourjois’ Colour Boost Lip Crayon in Red Sunrise. It has a lovely glossy finish and is a great colour to wear now it’s getting sunny. What I like most about this product is that it is really easy to work with and can literally be swiped across your lips with little thought and without the bother of using a lip brush which you tend to need to use when working with red lipstick. I throw it in my bag and use it to brighten up my look as and when I feel like it. A true winner!
I am not a fan of the matte look at all and always prefer my foundation to have a dewy finish. When I came across Revolution’s Radiance Palette I just couldn’t resist. It’s honestly beautiful! With three different powdered highlighters, there is something both day and night time looks and the darker colour works great with bronzer. The colours are pigmented but not too glittery and really help add definition to your face. I got mine from Superdrug for a really reasonable price and I will repurchase this in the future without a doubt!
Lastly, I have got back into reading and am making more time to delve into some books! I absolutely loved The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North and thought her story about a man who lives multiple lives was a brilliant concept. It was truly gripping and it’s been a long time since I found a book I simply could not put down – but this is certainly one of them! I’ve also been getting back into my magazines and found myself flicking through Cosmopolitan, Women’s Health and Health and Fitness this month!
What have you been reading recently? Would love to get some books together for my summer reading list! As always, please leave a comment with a link to your favourites post – I love to eye-spy new products to try myself!
