I can't believe that another month has flown by, mind you I have been so busy that I have hardly noticed the time pass.
This month I have been loving quite a number of different products. April is always a good time of the year as for us student it means that our loans go in, which of course means that I went shopping..oops!
Starting with make-up products, I have been obsessed with Soap and Glory lately. The great thing with this brand is that their prices are affordable, good quality and usually on a 3-2 offer!
The first product which I think is an absolute god-send is the Brow Tint & Precision Shaping Pencil. I have been using this on a daily basis and I think it has absolutely transformed my eyebrows. One end has a felt tip and this is what I primarily use to shape and fill in my brows & the second end is a waxy type of pencil which is great for blending any spots that the felt tip has missed. It retails in Boots for £10.00 and I wear the shade Brownie Points.
The second product from Soap and Glory which has become another staple in my make-up routine is the Kick Ass Concealer, in the shade Light. This concealer is brilliant as on the left side is an under eye brightening concealer whilst the right is perfect for blemishes and redness. It also comes with a little powder too and is a great all in one to keep in your handbag. It retails in Boots for £10.00 also.
Delice de Poudre bronzing powder. As I have such fair skin I have never found a bronzer which works well with my complexion however I have been loving this product this month. I use it with my Real Technique's Stippling Brush which is the other beauty fave that I have been loving. I am a super lover of the Real Technique's brushes and have been dying to get my hands on this one for ages. It is the perfect combination and buffs the bronzer into my skin with no problems at all. I wear the lightest shade and it retails for around £6.99 and the brush at £11.99
My last beauty item is the lipgloss Aurora from Tanya Burr's Lips and Nails collection. I have never been a lipgloss fan until I tried this and boy did my opinion change! It is such a lovely pink colour with flex of sparkles throughout, it is also easy to apply, long-wearing and smells amazing. If you haven't heard of Tanya Burr which i'd be shocked if you hadn't!) then I'll link her channel so you can check her out. This can be picked up in Superdrug or from Feel Unique for £6.99.
Herbal Essence's Bee Strong hair mask. If you have dry and damaged hair like mine then I fully reccomend looking into this product. I use it once a week instead of my conditioner and leave it in for up to 5 minutes and it leaves my hair feeling super soft. I have been using the shampoo and conditioner along side of it which I also adore. Also it smells super amazing! It retails for £4.79 in Boots.
For skin care I have been frequently using this Tea Tree Spot Wand from Boot's own range. This product states that it "fights spots and instant action" which I love the sound of. My skin thankfully doesn't get an awful lot of spots but I get the odd one now and again which often scars. This product has one end for use in the day and for the night and is a cheap £3.59
One Tree Hill. I absolutely LOVE this show and was so gutted when it finished for good so I bought the complete boxset. If you haven't seen it and you are interested in American soapy kind of shows then I'd suggest this. My favourite character is Brooke but I am also a big lover of Peyton too.
So that is it for my monthly favourites! I hope you have enjoyed reading about them as much as I have enjoyed using them.
Let me know in the comments what you have been loving this month or if you have used any of the products I have mentioned and your opinions on them.
Thanks everyone, I hope you're all well and have a lovely week :)
