March Beauty Favourites




April has finally arrived and although that means the beginning of summer for some, to me it starts the 10 week period of GCSE exams. Because of this through April I have been wearing minimal makeup as I have had a lot of days studying at home and even my skincare routine has dropped down to bare minimum. Despite this I do have some products which I have been using religiously...

Korres Sunflower and Mountain Tree shampoo - Being the first the first product I have bought from Korres I had high expectations and luckily it did not disappoint. It is aimed for coloured hair (mine is Ombre) and claims to 'protect colour and deeply moisturise.' In terms of colour protection I haven't noticed a difference but as for the moisturising, well, it works a treat. The ends of my hair that are usually dry and frizzy have totally calmed down and just feel so much smoother and softer. It may sound silly but the other nice thing about this shampoo is that it really makes my hair feel clean. So many times have I used moisturising products only to find my hair feel greasy after washing. I also purchased the conditioner with this but I don't feel that is particularly special.

Origins Drink up Mask - I feel like a shame to the beauty blogging world this month as my skincare routine has been so sporadic. Luckily I have managed to use this mask every now and then to give it a bit of a boost. Although I sometimes do use it as an overnight mask on my whole face I equally use it lightly underneath my normal overnight moisturiser on dry patches. See a more in depth review here.

Loreal Gentle Eye Makeup Remover - Although this isn't a product I would urge you to run out and buy I thought I would mention it at I have been using it often and it does the job of removing eye makeup very well and is a bargain price too.

NUXE Reve Du Miel Lip Balm - This year I really haven't had dry lips at all and I have this to thank. I pop on a thin layer in the morning and then a thick layer before bed and it keeps my lips lovely and moisturised. A good thing about this balm is that it is matte so you can apply a lipstick afterwards and not worry about it looking like a disco ball.

Loral True Match Foundation 'ivory' - Despite an initial love/hate relationship with this foundation I think I have now firmly fallen into the love category. It offers a good amount of buildable coverage,  the shade range is amazing and the finish is fairly natural. My only problem is that if not applied well it can look slightly cakey Make sure to use a good buffing brush and primer.

Maybelline Brow Drama 'Dark Brown' - This is a eyebrow gel that tames and tinted the eyebrows on a budget. I like the shape of the brush and the formula as it makes it very quick to apply. Most days I have just been wearing foundation, blush and a swipe of this through my eyebrows!

Nails Inc Kensington Caviar Top Coat - I actually got this in a Nails inc glitter set I found for £1.50, my best charity shop bargain to date! It is tough dry within seconds and leave nails super glossy. My only problem with this is the price, £12 for a full size (mine is a mini version).

Let me know what products you have been using through March!
