March 2016 Favourites

Hi everyone,

March has been a funny month; I feel like it has gone really fast but then when I look back to my boyfriend’s birthday on the 1st it seems like such a long time ago. Not a lot has happened or changed other than it was my last month working part time before I go back to full time hours next week which is going to be a bit of a shock to the system! I’m just keeping focused on all the extra pennies which of course means more shopping :) Anyway, enough of the rambling and back to today and my March favourites post.

First up this month I have fallen in love with the Clinique High Impact mascara. It’s one that has been in the back of my mind to try more for a while after having a few samples of it in the past and this month I finally took the plunge and bought the full sized version. I have written a full review of it here if you would like to read more about it but it’s safe to say it is up there with my favourite ever mascaras.

I have been using Bio Oil since around Christmas time on my forehead and chin as I have a few acne scars that I would like to try and minimise. I thought it would make my skin really greasy but I apply it in the evening before bed and wash it off in the morning and I have had no problems. Over the last few weeks I have started to notice an improvement in my skin and even my boyfriend has commented on it so that’s when you know it must have made a difference! I’ll definitely carry on using it and would highly recommend it for anyone with scaring that they would like to try and reduce. I know it’s not going to get rid of it completely but it has certainly helped.

I was given this perfume for Christmas by my mum and instantly fell in love with it. At first I only used it on special occasions as I thought it was too nice for every day but recently I have been reaching for it more and more. There’s just something about wearing a nice perfume that gives me a little pick me up and makes me feel more put together. I go into more detail about the notes and things in this post if you’re interested to read more.

I have struggled with really dry skin this winter, a lot more than usual, so have been on the hunt for products to help. The Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion is one of the few products that has really helped keep my skin hydrated and soft and has had more of a long term affect. This tube was only £5.09 (randomly) as well so it’s not going to break the bank.

After seeing the new limited edition Nars Laguna bronzer this month, I rummaged around my makeup drawers and dusted mine off again. Throughout winter I have been using a lot less fake tan and bronzer so it had been neglected for a while and kind of forgotten about. However, I needed to go down a shade in my Double Wear foundation but the trouble was that there is a big jump between the shade Fresco which I was using and the one below. Now my new one is a bit too light and Laguna has been great at adding a bit more life to my skin and also for creating a little contour every now and then.

Which products have you been reaching for this month? I feel a bit stuck in a rut and want to try some new things so please leave your recommendations in the comments and I will check them out :)

Thanks for reading,

  1. I've also been loving Bio Oil and have noticed a difference in just a few weeks!
    One of my favourites this month is the Camomile Eye Make Up Remover from The Body Shop, it removes even waterproof in one sweep :) x

  2. I really need to try more products from the Body Shop. I've heard so much about them recently but they always seem to slip my mind when I'm looking to try something new x
