April Favourites - Hair and Skincare


This is actually my first favourites post of the year - oops! I love getting near the end of the month and reading what people have been loving. It often shows me what products people like to use and their opinions are often more powerful and meaningful than any product advertisement, in my opinion of course!

This month, I've been loving more of the skin and hair care products more than make up, as that hasn't really changed for a very long time. Whilst I was at home for the Easter Holidays, I made a point of looking after my skin, managing to cleanse it twice a day!!! It's really thanking me for it - it's the best it's been in a very, very long time. I've also giving my hair a break from all the heat, instead favouring the natural curls, waves and frizz. I've even left my hair dryer and straighteners at home, whilst I'm back in Chichester for the next 4 weeks. 

Here's what I've been loving: 


Garnier - Micellar Water - I've heard so much rave about this on the blog world, that when I saw it in Home Bargains for 99p, I had to pick it up. I already love it and can see where the hype came from! It makes my skin feel lovely and really does get rid of all the makeup. 

Sanctuary Spa - Radiance Exfoliator - I've had this for a while and love it! Mum gave it to me to try over the Christmas holidays and usually I find exfoliators too harsh on my skin but this is quite the opposite. It smells lovely and is gentle.

Origins - Zero Oil Deep Pore Cleanser - I've been having a lot of trouble with oily and spotty skin in the past few weeks (probably to do with my messed up hormones and cycles but that's a different subject!) When mum and I went to the outlet village on mother's day, we found this gem and my skin has loved it! It's really cleared up since using it and I've also found it not too drying for my skin, which usually changes very quickly from oily or dry. Instead, along with the rest of the products I've been using has balanced out nicely!

Boots Botanics - Radiance Concentrate Serum All Bright - My skin, following all the problems, was looking so dull. But since beginning to use this product, it's got its glow back! It feels so nice on my skin and at the price it is, is a complete bargain! 

Estee Lauder - Day Wear Moisturiser - This is my favourite moisturiser EVER! It really does stop my skin from feeling tight and horrible! I have bought the large pot, but I decant a teaspoon of it into my travel pot to keep the main pot germ free! Plus the little pot is easier to take around with you and pack in your bag! I love the cucumber scent to it and it has an SPF25!

No7 - Soft and Soothed Gentle toner I have found previous toners to be too harsh on my skin. But as this one says in title, it's a gentle toner . It refreshers, comforts and hydrates. It leaves my skin feeling soft and not too dry. As you can see in the picture I've pretty much used the bottle - I bought a new one today! It's definitely my go-to toner!

Carmex Original - My lips are always so dry and cracked, but this sorts it out. Makes them feel soft again. 


Nivea - Smooth Nourishing Care Hand Cream - with all the weather changes recently, my hands were really suffering. I picked up this travel size in Primark and have been using it since. I no longer have dry sore hands

Aveeno - Skin Relief - I've been suffering a lot with dry skin all over and a flare up of eczema, this lotion has worked wonders on it and has completely calmed it down.

Baylis and Harding - Royal Bouquet Peach Poppy and Vanilla Shower Creme - As I mentioned in the previous favourite, I have eczema. This means I have to be very careful with what shower gels I use, otherwise I come out in a rash. This one doesn't give me a rash, and smells wonderful! It came in a gift pack to my mum a while back and she doesn't want it anymore so kindly gave it to me. 


L'Oreal Elvive - Extraordinary Oils Shampoo and Conditioner - I absolutely love this shampoo and the conditioner! I love the smell for one, but also the fact that it makes my hair feel so soft and nourished. It gets rid of the dryness of my hair and makes it feel so much better. It helps protect my hair from the damage of straightening. 

Garnier - Ultimate Blends, Coconut Oil - As I've been wearing my hair curly recently, this oil has been great at keeping the curls, curly and less frizzy! It also smells delicious! 

TRESemmé Moisture Rich Shampoo and Conditioner - I ran out of the L'Oreal Elvive whilst I was at home and forgot to ask my mum if she could buy me some more. We did however, have a lot of this product (as they bought ginormous bottles back from their last Costco trip. It does much the same as the L'Oreal and it also smells just as good. I've been using it whilst I've worn my hair curly and it seems to respond well to that.
