♥ March Favourites

I don't know how April has crept up on us so quickly. The year is really flying by and I keep on getting stuck into so many different things I can barely keep up with them all, but here are a few of the things I've been enjoying throughout March!

L'Oreal Lumi Magique Light Infusing Foundation
L'Oreal's True Match has been my go-to ever since I purchased it, but I'm coming to the end of my bottle of that and after buying this with a gift card just after Christmas, I've been reaching for it more and more this past month. The packaging is beautiful, gives a lovely dewy finish and I really like the consistency, it's a bit thicker than True Match but blends just as well.

Neutrogena Nourishing Body Lotion
I've been slathering this all over my body every day after showering and I've been using it on my face, too, just to give it an extra boost of hydration. It's really creamy, smells divine and leaves my skin feeling super soft and doesn't feel sticky at all. The packaging states that it keeps your skins hydration levels up even seven hours after application, which hints that it keeps your skin healthy looking and hydrated all day long.

Halzephron Garden Mint Lip Salve
I wasn't getting along with my Carmex lip balm so when I picked this up in a local produce shop in the tiny Cornish town I live in, I was really intrigued. It's completely natural, cruelty free and obviously contains no nasty chemicals. It's just coconut oil, olive oil, spearmint oil beeswax and almond oil. It was costly, at £3.30 for a 15ml tub but I love that its a local product and from a smaller business that can thrive off every sale. They have a bunch of 'lifestyle' stuff on their website and has a few other bits in store so I'm definitely going to try more!

Monu Hydrating Moisturiser
I love how thick it is and it really helps to hydrate and keep my skin feeling soft and smooth. I hate that this is such a small sample and I think I'll purchase the full size the second it runs out. It feels that good on my skin! Also, its SPF of 15 will be perfect as we're going into spring.

Garnier Micellar Water
This is a bloggers favourite. I kind of neglected my L'Oreal alternative for a really long time as I've just been trying to stick with a strict cleansing routine of an evening to remove all my makeup, but now I'm back at work it's perfect for when I get home and want to remove all the makeup, food and grease that's built up in my pores over a day at McDonalds! It's so refreshing and soothing and really soft on the skin and eyes - which I love!

Real Techniques Bold Metals 201
I mentioned this in my Everyday Makeup in March post. I love how easy the dense, pointed end of this brush builds up colour in the crease of your lids and it's made it so much easier for me to wing out my eyeshadow to a really nice smokey finish. I'm not very good with eyeshadow application at all but this has really helped me improve and find a good technique. Plus, it looks so so beautiful on my dresser.

Other Stuff:
I've got right back into Pretty Little Liars again. I lost interest throughout series three and four but damn, has series five played with my head. I do think the plot is a bit naff, but Caleb is so gorgeous and I really don't know how it's going to all end now so I have to keep watching. I've also been loving Jamie Oliver's Food Tube to get quick little snippets of food inspiration. I'm a massive fan of his and it's a brilliant platform to share really simple easy to follow recipes. He's definitely worth subscribing too. In terms of books, I Am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes is blowing my mind. It's a book a good friend bought for me after being totally caught up in it himself and boy, am I pleased he shared this with me. It's a really long book and I rarely find time in my days to actually pick it up and start reading, but when I do I can't put it down. So it's a good thing its 900 pages long, really!
