April Favourites

April Favourites LtoR: Lush Tea Tree water, Burt's Bees Lip Balm, Urban Decay Naked Skin, Garnier Micellar Water, Mac Creme De La Femme, V05 Give Me Texture Spray and the Divergent Soundtrack.

I can't get over how quickly the year is passing, especially to think we are in May already. Whilst I didn't buy a lot of products in April - I'm trying to be good - I did find myself discovering some old favourites that I have included in this months favourites posts. 

Lush Tea Tree Water

This is a staple part of my skincare routine, I did a full review on this a little while ago here. I love spraying this onto my face as I find it really helps keep bad skin days at bay and if I have missed this in my routine it does help clear any blemishes that may appear. Because you only need a couple of sprays to cover your face the smaller bottle does last ages which makes it fantastic value for money and a skin lifesaver. 

Burt's Bees Lip Balm

Over the past month by lips have been really weird and I have suffered from two patches of dry skin on the upper lip. At first I thought it may have been a reaction to a lipstick or gloss but I wasn't too sure, however applying this onto my lips throughout really helped get my lips back in order and soften the skin again. For me this is my favourite lip balm and don't think I'd ever stray.

Urban Decay Naked Skin

This is an old favourite for me, I kind of forgot about this foundation after hiding it away in my vanity drawer. After using it over the last month I remembered why I fell in love with this foundation,  not only does it look good on the skin I find that because it gives a matte finish I don't need to apply powder - anything that means less steps is always a lifesaver in a morning for me. I find with this also that it seems to last during the day whilst I am at work and don't suffer any oily patches on the skin which is a major bonus.

Garnier Micellar Water

My trusty micellar water is raved about a lot and not only on my blog. This is currently my favourite way to remove makeup on a night, and refresh my skin in a morning. I did a full review on this here, I find that not only does it clear my makeup well on an evening but it stays true to its word and does last around the 200 use mark. I already have another two bottles lined up as it's currently half price in Boots for when I run out. 

Mac Creme De La Femme

Another product that I have popped away and seemingly forgotten about, however when I found it out again a few weeks ago I wondered how or why I had ever forgotten about this little beauty. Creme De La Femme is a gorgeous frost shade that is perfect for the warmer months. Considering the frost formula this lipstick has a great lasting power of around 4-5 hours and I think I will continue to wear during the summer.

V05 Give Me Texture Spray

I have been on the hunt for the perfect texturising spray for quite a while, and I tried the V05 Texture Spray and fell in love. I tend to use this when I have crimped my hair and not only does it add volume and bounce to my hair but I find it has a hairspray quality that helps keep the curls in place all day and don't drop, making this a fab texturising spray for any look.

Divergent Soundtrack

This is the random addition to my favourites list, I couldn't include the actual soundtrack as that was and is currently in my car. However I'm a big fan of the Divergent series and when I saw the film I was amazed by how much I loved the soundtrack and have been listening to it constantly nonstop. As a fan of Ellie Goulding I adore the choice of songs on this album and Beating Heart and Find You are my top tracks from the album. 

I'd love to know what you're favourites are for the month.
