March Favourites

Nivea Caramel Cream Lip Butter - This is a new release and I'm in love with it. It's always exciting when new lip products are released, even better when they are caramel scented as foody scents are so difficult to find. As you would expect from a lip butter, this is super hydrating, creamy and lovely to use. You can read my full review here.

Subtle Energies Pure Indian Rose Hydrosol - Even though it's March, it's still been really hot here in Perth. I keep my face spray in the fridge for a refreshing burst when I need it. This one is a favourite because it smells like roses and that's always a winner for me.

MAC Syrup lipstick - I've repurchased this at least three times, it's one of my favourite lipsticks. It's been sitting neglected in my collection for a while now, but I pulled it out again this month and remembered why I love it so much. Syrup is the perfect MLBB shade, it brightens up my face and looks very natural.

Make-up Artist Michael Brown - He does amazing work and is so friendly. Even though he works with celebrities he's down to earth and if you ask him a question on Face Book, Twitter or Instagram he gets back to you (usually within 1/2 an hour too)! I wish he'd start a blog.

Australian Bushflower Essences Body Love moisturiser - This smells amazing. I've been using it as a night cream and it's lovely. Once I've finished P100P I'd like to try more of the range as it's made by a naturopath and it all sounds lovely.

Audra James Reflux Blend -  I have yet to meet an Audra product that I don't love. She custom makes everything and it's all amazing. The latest Audra product I'm in love with is the special reflux blend that she made up for me. I only suffer from reflux when I'm pregnant, thankfully, but it's an awful feeling. I had no idea that aromatherapy could help reflux, but when I mentioned reflux to Audra she said she could make me a blend, and it works! I just rub a little bit on my upper chest and within five minutes my reflux is gone. Amazing.

Glasshouse Tahaa Candle - Vanilla caramel. What more is there to say?

Maternity Clothes - I pulled my maternity clothes out of storage this week and suddenly have a whole wardrobe of clothes to wear again. Some of them are too big as I'm much smaller this pregnancy, but it's so nice to have choice again. I've been wearing the same two skirts for over a month now so am loving being able to choose from several different things.

Manicare Glass Nail File - If you haven't tried a glass nail file, get one now, it'll change your life. As long as you don't drop it, it will last for years (I've had mine for about five years) and it's very gentle on your nails.

Models Prefer All-In-One BB Cream - This is as close to Asian BB creams as it gets. It gives good coverage and makes my skin look flawless. I don't even need to use powder over the top as the coverage is enough to cover up my redness and even out my skintone.

Clinique Even Better Eyes - I haven't been using this for long enough to say if it is helping my dark circles, however so far I really like it. It has a wide, metal applicator that feels soothing to apply, it doesn't irritate the sensitive skin around my eyes and it's hydrating enough to keep my hayfeverish eyes from being dry.

Lush Ro's Argan Body Conditioner - I haven't been wearing much perfume lately and use this in place of perfume as it smells amazing. I wish they made it in perfume form. I'm seriously considering sending it to Audra and getting her to make me a perfume version.

Blistex Intensive Repair - When we were down south a few weeks ago I had sore, cracked lips and didn't have my Carmex with me. I went to Priceline to buy some but they didn't have any (the horror!) so I bought the Blistex version instead. I'm really impressed. It's a lovely, hydrating balm that makes my lips feel very soft. I've been using it as a night balm and my lips haven't cracked at all. 

1 Skin Solution Tinted Lip Butters in Guava Lemonade and Coconut Plum - Recently I was lamenting the fact that I don't own any plum coloured lip balms and then I happily rediscovered my Coconut Plum lip balm. It's the perfect wine colour and the smell is heavenly. 
I've also been using my Guava Lemonade lip balm a lot, the colour is so pretty. 

YSL Shiny Lip Plumper - This doesn't have a shade name on it but as you can see it's a plum colour. I'm not sure if they still make these, if they don't it's a shame cause they are gorgeous glosses. I don't get a plumping effect but I find it to be very hydrating and it smells like mint.

Tangle Teezer - This is the best brush I've ever used. I've spoken about it before but just had to mention in again. You can read my full review here.

WotNot Travel Wipes - My favourite wipes now come in a travel size. But this isn't just any travel case, it's a special one. The case is made of hard plastic and it has a mirror on the back, awesome. It could easily be re purposed to house other fragile items you didn't want damaged whilst you were travelling.


  1. I have about 6 different brands of wipes and Wotnot is my absolute fave! I would love to try Audra James some day; you mention her products heaps. I should do a Fave post soon.. Got lazy with it after a couple of times. And hurray for tangle teezers!

    1. Isn't WotNot amazing? I try other brands but they just aren't the same.

      Audra products are so good, once I finish up the skin care I have I'm going to get her full skin care range.

      Do a favourite post, I love to read them. You don't have to do it every month.

  2. Thanks for the mention. Glad you are enjoying the lip butters. coconut plum is great for winter. :)

    1. They are one of my all time favourite balms, sooooo good :)

  3. omg if you get a perfume version of ro's argan please let me know so I can buy a million of them
