March Favourites!



 Seeing as April is finally here, I thought it'd be nice to share a few of the products I've been loving for the past few weeks (or longer for some of these!)
Firstly, the Charles Worthington Volume and Bounce Texturising Spray. Dubbed the drugstore dupe of the Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray, at £6.99 this has had me reaching for it daily for at least the last six weeks! I find that this really does hold texture for the majority of the day; if my hair looks a bit flat, like it tends to when its freshly washed I just spritz a small amount into my roots and baaam, big hair. As the day goes on and hairstyles drop like they do, what's great about this product is I can simple stick my fingers in my hair, mess it up a little and its back to being voluminous! I also found that this almost has the affect of a dry shampoo...well I've found myself using less dry shampoo and more of this anyway!

Next up is a toner that I've been re-purchasing for well around a year now upon the recommendation of Caroline Hirons. For me, someone with acne prone, sensitive skin a harsh scrub that has exfoliating beads in is just too much for my skin - I end up with a sore face as well as being as red as a lobster. So when I stumbled across this video and saw that Caroline recommended this product I just new I has to have it. The Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner is a liquid exfoliator that is applied to a cotton wool pad and swept over the face, after cleansing. By using an exfoliating toner, as Caroline mentions in the video, you are not only killing off any bacteria on the face but you're also prepping the skin for the next steps, moisturizing and so on. I stopped using this for a while in favor of testing out another product but found myself reaching for it as I noticed my skin had broken out quite badly and since using this again, my skin really has cleared up!

As I mentioned earlier, I have sensitive skin that can often leave me with red patches dotted all over my face so when proclaimed make up artist Lisa Eldridge mentioned this product I thought I'd give it a go. The Eau Thermale Avene Antirougeurs Jour Redness Relief cream is a thick slightly green moisturizing protecting cream. No need to panic with the pale green consistency though, as it cancels out the red patches of skin. I really like this product, not only does it calm down my red patches but its also got SPF 20 perfect for wearing daily under my make up!

 Now onto lips, as part of a Boot order I was very lucky to qualify for a free gift that included this Clinique Lip Balm, in Black Honey. I really really like this, whilst it may appear dark in the tube, on application it is in fact very sheer. I'm way too scared to go for a full bright red lip so instead I like building this up so it becomes almost like a very faded red shade. It's slick, flattering and leaves lips feeling nourished.

Rimmel Colour Rush Balm 
 Finally, the Rimmel Colour Rush Balm in shade Not An Illusion is fast becoming my everyday, go to lip colour. These have been hyped about for a while now and its not hard to see why everyone think they're great. This shade in particular I feel is one of those 'your lips but better' shades, perfect for everyday, yet is sheer and buildable enough for a night out kinda pout!
