APRIL FAVOURITES // BEAUTY




























So, this is my first monthly favourites!
These are one of my favourite things to read on other Blogs so I was super excited to start compiling my own :)
There is a mixture of Make-up, Hair and Skin products so I hope you like it guys :)!


I was really excited to try this Shampoo (&conditioner) as I absolutely love the Moroccan Oil Treatment . I had high hopes for this as when the Hair Dressers used this on my my hair was transformed.
Trusty old Moroccan Oil did not let me down, this really is an amazing product.

You only need a tiny bit of this Shampoo (even on my thick hair) to work it up into a beautiful rich lather - so it lasts for a really long time. I re-purchased mine when I when to get my 2 monthly trim, so it lasted a good 8 weeks.
At £15.85 for 250ml and £20.00 for 500ml, (the pricing seems a little off) this is definitely one for those with dry or curly hair to try :)


Oh BOY! This Salt Scrub is just too blooming amazing ! Me and my mum have used this for years on and off, and when ever we have an 'off' phase when we come back to this we question why we ever left it.




























Firstly, this product is seriously good value for money. In a tub you get 650Grams, which will last a good few months and the price is £11.50 (although you'll struggle to find a Boots where Sanctuary Spa isn't on a 3-4-2).


Secondly, what I love about this product, is how luxurious it feels. It is a really abrasive exfoliator made up from Rock Salt Crystals , so if you prefer a light exfoliator, this may not be the one for you.  The Salt Crystals are then submerged in the most lovely smelling, rich and just generally yummy oil you have ever tried. It leaves the skin so soft and pampered, just like a Spa experience :)




























I'm always on the look out for new bronzing and contouring products & I really like this as soon as I saw it as it is a Matte Bronzer. This make it great for contouring and creating a natural look as the colour is not orange at all (think Matt NARS Laguna Bronzer), the cute little brush that comes with it is also great from getting into the hollows of your cheeks. I've found I have been reaching for this almost everyday this month which is why it is in here :)


The packaging of all the Benefit Powders is so great! Its made of paper, which I think prevents the product from smashing or the box from snapping & now there is also a handy Mirror inside which is great for on the go touch ups :)


Thank God for Gerualin! I really do LOVE LOVE LOVE it.. 
It is one of those Brands which I think never gets enough hype and can run rings around the likes of Lancome and Clinique.
I picked up this Bronzer last Summer and have used it almost daily, definitley weekly, since. And the crazy thing it is barely looks like I've used it. It was raaaather pricey at around £50.00, but the fact that it is no where near pan proves its worth the money.
 You get 14Grams of this as opposed to 8Grams of Hoola Bronzer.
I use this as an Eyeshadow, Highlighter (cheeks, cupids bow, eye corners and eye brows). I'm not too such if this is still available is shops but on Amazon I'm sure it will be.
This is such a great investment buy and is such a timeless products which you will never get sick of picking up :)


We all know the hyper around these brushes, I'm sure. But if you have no herd about them I will try and do so quickly.
Basically these Brushes are the product of Samantha Chapman who is one half of the Youtube Pixiwoo Team. So really they are make up brushes made by a Make-up Artist :)
They are synthetic brushes which makes them super easy to clean , and much cheaper than real hair brushes.


I've honestly never had one fall out hair from this brush (even when washing them) and this brush just makes apply Foundation sooo quick and easy. It creates an even flawless finish and allows you to built up the coverage by stipelling too.

Hope you enjoyed my first ever Monthly Favourites cause I really enjoyed the processes of picking these products out.

Love Em xx

  13. You have made me want the Sanctuary scrub so bad!! Also the Guerlain Bronzer/Shimmer looks insanely beautiful I can't believe how long it's lasted you. Hoola Bronzer is definitely on my to-buy Bronzer list but I'm far too faithful to my Nars Laguna xx
