April Favourites

I can not believe how quickly this year is going, May already - unreal.  Here are some of the products I really loved during the month of April .


For my hair..

Organix - rejuvenating Cherry Blossom Ginseng Shampoo & Conditioner
My hair has been very temper mental recently and I have been quite stressed out with it, it has been very limp and almost thinning.  This Cherry Blossom Ginseng by Organix has done wonders for it.

For my nails...


 Rimmel London Salon Pro by Kate 
This is a beautiful purple from the new Kate Salon Pro range it is called Disco Fever

Nicole by O.P.I Drying Drops
This is a new product to me and I am so glad it has arrived in my life, a couple of drops of this on top of your mani and it is dry in seconds - what a time saver.

Bourjois Paris 1 Second Magic Nail Polish Remover
When it comes to removing nail varnish.  I would not use anything else - enough said

For my face . . .

Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation
I recently attended the launch of the Urban Decay counter for Debenhams Aberdeen and I could not resist buying their Naked Skin foundation.  This is shade 2.0 which is one of the lighter shades as I am very fair.  This foundation makes my skin look very natural it gives great build able coverage - very easy to work with.

GOSH BB Skin Perfecting Kit - Highlighter & Concealer
This BB Skin Perfecting Kit by GOSH is the first product I have bought from the GOSH cosmetics range.  It is perfect with 3 subtle shades - light conceals, medium gets rid of dark circles and the white shimmer gives your cheeks a radiant glow under your foundation - even with setting powder it subtly glows through. Handy sized compact with mirror.

For cheeks. . .

L'ORÉAL Paris Nude Magique BB Blush
I don't know about you but I am loving the Nude Magique range by L'oréal at the moment and this BB Blush is no exception.  This rosy blush glides on to the skin and gradually gives a rosy glow to your cheeks.  I apply this BB Blush on top of my foundation (liquid on liquid for best results) and then I put my setting powder on top. It is very pigmented so only use a small amount.

Finally for lips...

Revlon Lip Butter 035 Candy Apple
Utterly obsessed with the Revlon Lip Butters this season and my favourite shade is of course Candy Apple which is a lovely red shade.  These are very pigmented and really moisturising.  I am going to have to replace this shortly.

What were your favourites this month and what did you think of mine?  I will be reviewing each product individually soon.
