March Favourites

I'm sure favourites time comes round quicker and quicker every month! Favourites time also means payday time so it's definitely welcome!

This month I have been loving a selection of new products and forgotten favourites. First up is Philosophy's Granny's Apple Pie shower gel, which I picked up in the Boots Christmas sale. I like to use up my products before I start trying anything else and have been using Lush's Snow Fairy shower gel since Christmas but I was really excited to use this. It really does smell like apple pie and I love getting faint whiffs of it during the day. It's the perfect way to pick up me up in the morning as I am not a morning person!

Next up is Rimmel's Match Perfection Foundation in Ivory. I've been searching for a new foundation since my Benefit Hello Flawless ran out a few weeks ago and I couldn't afford to repurchase it. I picked this up in my latest Boots 3 for 2 haul and am quite impressed with it so far, it's light but gives great coverage. It's definitely far better that the L'Oreal one I picked up before it which I didn't get on with at all!

This month's saviour has been my Ginger & Co Hand It To Me hand cream. Since I started my new aerial fitness class my hands have become very sore from grabbing onto the hoop and pulling myself up. I've got blisters just underneath all my fingers on both hands so using this every day has definitely helped make my hands feel soft and smooth again!

This month's polish of choice has been Essie's Mint Candy Apple, which has popped up in several posts recently. It's the perfect spring colour, I love how it applies and it lasts several days without chipping (as long as you do minimal washing up!)

  Finally, I have rediscovered my love for Sleek's Mirrored Pink Blush after having a make up spring clean session. I had completely forgotten I had it and have been using it every day since it made it's way back into my make up bag. It's very pigmented and I have to be careful not to use too much and end up looking like a rosy cheeked doll but its got amazing staying power!

 What are your favourites this month? Have you tried any of mine?

  3. I stumbled upon your blog today and it is just lovely :)

    Everyone always talks about Philosophy so I recently tried the Frosted Animal Cracker gel and mmmm it is so good! I will have to check out the Granny Smith Apple one because I love fruity scents.

    Also, what a pretty nail polish! You're right, it's perfect for spring.
