April Favourites



I recently discovered a new blog, the Lip Balm Wrangler. As a fellow lip balm addict it's great to find a blog that is all about lip balm. It's not going to be great for my credit card though!
Healthy Care Super Body Oil - This is one of the oils I'm using to try and prevent stretch marks and stop any itching. I've been using this is the mornings as it's not oily and it absorbs quickly so I can get dressed straight away. It also doesn't leave marks on my clothing.

Neutrogena Naturals range - I was sent three of the new Neturogena Naturals products to try out and I'm really loving all of them. It's great to see a large brand bringing out products that are free of nasties. I'll be doing a review of all three products soon.

Models Prefer All-In-One BB Cream - I know I've mentioned this before but it's so good that I had to mention it again. Out of all the BB's I've tried, this one comes closest to the Asian BB's. 

Red Earth Expert Touch Silky Hydrating Concealer - I was so excited when I found out that Red Earth are back. They were one of my favourite brands when I was a teenager and the new range does not disappoint. I have quite a few of their products which I'll be reviewing soon, however I just had to mention the concealer. It is now one of my three favourite concealers. It's equally as good as my holy grail Bobbi Brown Corrector and Models Prefer Professional Anti-Wrinkle Concealer.

Firebird Almond Milk Perfume Oil - I can't stand perfumes or strong fragrances whilst I'm pregnant and I prefer to use natural products and oils during my pregnancy, so I pulled out some of my perfume oils. Almond Milk has quickly become a favourite, I don't know why I left it sitting neglected for so long. Unfortunately it's being discontinued so I'm going to have to buy several of them whilst it's still available.

Nivea Essential Care lip balm - This is another product that I've had sitting around for ages and not paid much attention to. It's never excited me because it doesn't have a fragrance or flavour and I'm all about flavoured lip balms. When we moved it was the only lip balm I could find (how is that possible?), so I started using it and to my great surprise it's amazing! It's so creamy and hydrating, perfect for winter. I can see this becoming one of my holy grail balms.

Red Earth Lip Nectar - As I mentioned above, all the Red Earth products I got are amazing, I can't wait to try more from the range. Their lip balm is just gorgeous. It smells good and gives a gorgeous wash of long lasting hydration and colour. I'm planning on getting the clear version in my next order.

Models Prefer Pressed Powder - I always struggle with face powders. You'd think it'd be an easy product to find however I rarely find one that I like. I picked this one up when I couldn't find my favourite Dior powder and was very pleasantly surprised at how great it is. It gives good but natural looking coverage so is perfect over tinted moisturiser or BB. On lazy days I'll apply it over moisturiser, with a kabuki brush and it has enough coverage to even out any redness and dark patches.
If you look very closely you can see pan!
