April Favourites



Origins VitaZing SPF 15

 I adore this stuff! I think it has to be one of my holy grail products. This is my second tube and it lasts forever, you only require a tiny amount. I apply it every morning as a base underneath my make up and it gives my foundation a flawless finish. It also looks beautiful on its own but to be honest I don't have the confidence in my skin just to wear it alone. 


Oilatum 

 This is my staple moisturizer which I could not live without. As I'm sure you have heard me mention on many occasions I have skin like a cornflake and it requires excessive amounts of moisturizer and this actually does the trick and causes no irritation. About three weeks ago I noticed the skin on my legs was particularly dry and my normal body cream was not cutting it so I decided to use Oilatum as my body cream and it is fantastic just what my skin needed.


Jemma Kidd Dewy Glow All Over Radiance Creme Rose Gold 02 

I have rediscovered this product in April and love it! I just apply a small amount with my fingers across my cheek bones and pop a tiny bit on my cupids bow. When I am wearing this I always receive compliments about how healthy my skin looks.


Urban Decay Naked 

 I have both the Naked pallets and I have to admit I honestly don't think I needed to buy Naked 2 as I tend to usually reach for the first pallet. This month I have been loving Sin all over my lip and then Smog blended into my crease.


Barry M Fushia 

 This applies like a dream and dries super quick. I love the colour as it reminds me of summer. I have been wearing this non stop with OPI Teenage Dreams glitter polish on top. 


Baking Soda

 This one seems crazy but I have only recently started doing this again. About once a week I put toothpaste on my toothbrush and then dip it in baking soda and then brush my teeth. It tastes gross but baking soda is a great whitening agent and it also is slightly abrasive so your teeth feel super clean afterwards.


My One April Regret 



Garnier BB Cream 

 I really don't like this product. I don't know is it just me or is it just a bad product. It applies really patchy on my skin and although I love the smell I don't know how something with such a strong scent can be doing much good for the skin. I am going to give it to my mum to try out, to see if she likes it. Maybe I am being a little harsh as I am comparing it to Origins VitaZing which is unfair as Garnier is a drugstore product.

What are your April favourites? Do you have any must have products? Let me know xxx

  4. I've been contemplating whether or not to buy the Origins cream, since it seems to be such a cult classic. Would you recommend it for someone who is fair skinned? (NC/NW 15 in MAC foundation)

    The rest of the post was interesting as well! Especially Jemmakid's High lighter seems just like a product for me, haha.

    1. Hiya Thank you for your lovely comment xxx Yes i would definitely recommend the Origins cream. I am NW20 so I am fairly pale myself. There is only a slight tint in the cream and it even appears white in the tube when you rub it in it gives leaves a lovely heathy glow. xxx

  7. Hey just found you through the blog hop! I have to agree, I wasn't blown away by Garnier's BB cream, I find it really thick and waxy feeling, which I hated! I've done a review over at my blog kokeshibeauty.blogspot.co.uk

  8. Sin and smog are the exact same 2 shadows I wear on a daily basis. I need a new sin though as I've hit pan, I love it so much.
