April is over, where on earth has that gone?? At least we’ve had a bit of sunshine and good weather here in England, which has made for a lovely spring month. It’s felt like a really happy month. Because of this and I haven’t used a lot of new products this month as I’ve been so busy with work and then enjoying the sunshine, but here are my top 3 products for the month of April.
Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Sun Lotion
The sun has been shining on us for a lot of this month, so being on the paler end of the skin tone spectrum I’ve been using sun protection when I've been out and about. I picked this up at the end of last year in a sale in the hope of a bit of winter sun, but alas life got in the way and I didn’t get the chance. I cracked this open at the start of the month and I love it! It has a fantastic coconut holiday smell, although not the usual sun lotion smell, a lot more like a body lotion scent. It goes on like a dream, it's not sticky, more creamy and is very easy to blend into the skin making it easier to not miss any bits. It also absorbs very fast so as not to leave the usual sticky residue that slot of sun lotions leave, plus its factor 30, bonus! It also leaves a lovely subtle sparkle/sheen on the skin that I really liked. I would highly recommend this if you are looking for a new sun lotion to try this year. Lets hope for a bit more sun so I can keep on using this!
L'Oreal skin perfection - miracle cleansing oil
I have been a big fan of cleansing oils for a few years now. I started with the MAC cleanse off oil and loved it, but then I tried the Emma Hardie cleansing balm after receiving a sample from a beauty box and have been using that ever since. However I sadly ran out at the end of February and was unable to repurchase at the time due to wanting to save a bit of money (it's amazing but very pricey!), so I needed a quick fix. I saw this on offer in Asda for a few pounds, so thought I’d give it a try. I was very pleasantly surprised! It easily gets rid of all my makeup (especially water proof mascara!) and feels nice and light on the skin and nourishing. I would say it is a good cheaper alternative to the MAC cleanse off oil and I have used it every day since I purchased and am really impressed with it! I will defineatly keep using it until it runs out and then decided whether to splurge again on the cleansing balm or just save my money and repurchase!
Balance Me revitalising hand and body wash
This was one of the items in my lookfantastic.com April beauty box. I wasn’t overly excited about using this but popped it in my shower anyway to give it a whirl. The smell is amazing, so refreshing, a great pick me up first thing in the morning. It lathers really well which I was pleasantly surprised at as it is sulphate free and I have struggled in the past to find a sulphate free wash that give a good amount of foam and bubbles, but I had no bother with this. It left my skin feeling soft and very clean and smelt fabulous for a good few hours. Overall I really enjoyed using this product and it has inspred me to look at other products from Balance Me. A big thumbs up from me and by far the best product to come out of my April beauty box.
Well thats it for another month. May is a another busy month for work but I do have a holiday coming up in May as well so hopefully i will get to try a whole array of new products, as love to try new things for holidays that I wouldn’t always use at home.
