So it has now been almost a month since I started blogging and I am so overwhelmed by everyone’s support for me and my blog’s development! Sadly, however, I can’t write an April Favourites about you all (purely because pictures of you would be super hard to get haha!) Instead I’m going to share a few of the products I’ve been loving lately – you also get a lovely panoramic view of my room if you look at the lid of the Daisy Dream, so enjoy that!
First up is my absolute favourite moisturiser – Good Things Face the Day SPF15 Moisturiser (£7.99/100ml). I love it so much that I went out and bought a whole new tube before I’d even finished half! At first I was a little skeptical because I don’t normally go for a scented face product, especially if I’m going to be using it every day! That said, I’m a sucker for anything with SPF and it is suitable for vegans so I was sold pretty quickly. I have used this moisturiser every day for almost a year. I love it. I can’t get enough. Seriously I can’t image my skin-care routine without it! And the scent? Heavenly. Truly heavenly. Seriously, now that summer’s round the corner its the absolute bomb diggity!
So what’s next? Obviously Marc Jacobs’ Daisy Dream! (£38.50/30ml) I’ve had a bottle of Daisy sitting on my dressing table since I was 13. It really is my signature scent (as it is a lot of people). When Daisy Dream was released I was so excited and dropped a million hints – luckily Ollie picked them all up and bought me this gorgeous little bottle for my 20th birthday last September. With the warmer weather, I’ve been feeling a lot more summery and floral. Daisy Dream has been an absolute staple. A squirt in the morning to wake me up, a squirt in the evening to calm me – its fabulous. Truly a wonderful little scent and such a gorgeous bottle!
A relatively new addition to my makeup bag has been Rimmel’s Radiance BB Cream in Light 1 (£6.99/33ml). I’ve always been a little skeptical of BB creams or tinted moisturisers, mainly because I don’t believe in putting things on your face that aren’t necessary – I’d have chosen a foundation over a BB any day. Lately, however, I’ve had a change of heart. This little BB truly is excellent and acts in much the same way as a light foundation – it really does cover blemishes and blends skin tone, but is light and airy and really does give me a little glow. I’m trying to get more and more into letting my skin breathe and this is an excellent first step. And, as I say, I’m a sucker for anything SPF!
This last one is a biggy: Superdrug’s B. Pure Micellar Water (£2.48/150ml). I jumped on the Micellar bandwagon completely by accident (I’m such a skin-care hipster…) and I 100% agree with all the hype around this little cleansing water. Skeptical as I was about how a water could cleanse – and I’m still not quite sure how it differs from a toner – I’ve come to really appreciate everything it does for me and my face. My makeup removing routine usually consisted of a face wipe, followed by a cleanser, followed by a basic moisturiser. Having now been converted, I’ve realised how much makeup I was leaving on my skin, even with washing! Seriously, you could put all the foundation back into a bottle and sell it for how much of it was left! Since then I’ve used this twice a day, every day. It’s perfect for mornings to freshen and cleanse without drying your skin with a cleanser, and is perfect for removing makeup at night. (And it makes an amazing brush cleaner too!)0
