April Beauty Favourites ☮♥



HAIR
TRESemme Heat Defence Styling Spray
This is actually the first heat defence spray I’ve ever used. I never felt the need to invest until I recently ruined my hair by bleaching it. I actually picked this up at the supermarket and although I haven’t noticed a great difference in my hair, it’s put my mind at ease knowing I’m using something! 

Lee Stafford Hair Growth Shampoo & Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment & Lee Stafford Hair Growth Conditioner
Used in that order, this trio has made my hair thicker. I truly believe this has contriubuted to my hair growth. Again recently I butchered my hair bleaching it, and what a mistake it was. I had huge lumps of hair come out and so I invested in this trio, well worth the money especially for damaged hair. My hair barely grows anyway so this has definitely improved its growth rate! 

SKINCARE/LIPCARE
Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Hydration Boost Night Mask
As mentioned in my previous post this mask has become an obsession. I love love love everything that it does to my skin. Even more I love that its quick because I don’t currently have must time available to pamper myself! 

Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Skin Balancing Toner
I think I have stumbled on the best toner I have ever tried. I never really understood the hype for toners until I tried this. It not only smells divine but it actually feels like it’s doing something. Refreshing and fast acting there truly is a visible difference when using this.

A-Derma Oatmeal Lipbalm
Delivered to me in my April Glossybox I am in love with this lip balm. I’ve been using this overnight as its not scented and I prefer scents/flavours in the daytime. But this is pure nourishment. It’s wet but not glossy; it feels like velvet between your lips. I look forward to going to bed to be able to put this on!

NAILS
Sally Hansen Continuous Nail Treatment for Hardening
As a long time nail biter finally growing my nails meant when they grew they were weak. Investing a pound in this was definitely worth my while. I’ve been using this throughout the month and have seen some serious benefits. My nails are now both more shiny and harder. I also use this as a base coat and it’s still be working. Meaning healthy nails and no restriction on wearing colours! I love this little investment.

Rimmel Last Finish Nail Polish in 705 Tangy Tangerine
This creamy orange/orangey peach colour has been my nail colour of the month. I could barely opt for another choice especially on the few sunny days we had! A definite spring colour, even my mum went and got her nails done this colour for her holiday! 

MAKEUP
Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation
As a lover of matte foundation I am so pleased with this foundation. Its matte but also has undertones of radiance. I have problems with redness and this never fails to cover them up, it’s long lasting without being set by powder. It literally does not move or transfer at all. Its lightweight and you can’t feel it on your skin. I adore this foundation.

Laura Mercier Metallic Eye Crème – Burnished Copper
I love crème eye shadows, especially as a base, but I love that this can be used alone to create the perfect grunge look. The colour is beautiful and it has a slight shimmer to it. It applies wet but you can set it with a power and I have been using the shade ‘faint’ from my naked basics palette to do just that. Once set it blends out and is so beautiful I just can’t get enough. It kind of reminds me of earthy tribal type themes, and I think this is perfect for an edgier take on spring.

FRAGRANCE
Prada Candy
I bought this when I saw it on offer in the drugstore for half price a while back. But this scent really comes into play in the spring. April started with Easter and the scent of candy belongs in no better place. Since using it over Easter its sweet scent has been hard to resist. It’s as addictive as the real thing!
