If you follow my blog you would have seen me post a few “trying out my beauty” posts. I didn’t do one last month but I really missed it so I decided to find some more gems in my beauty stash to try in April. I love hoarding beauty products and forget what I have in my treasure box but these posts make me venture into the unknown and make me discover some great products! I totally recommend this if you are trying to save a bit of money and half the time you have some great products you had forgotten about anyway!
So, without further ado let’s get started!
I bought palette this last year and used it quite a lot last summer but I had forgotten about it so I have put this into my everyday makeup bag so I remember to use it. It is great for travel as it has eyes and cheeks covered and the shades are so delicate for that softer makeup look I enjoy. The palette is also stunning so I will definitely be reaching for this regularly in April!
I bought this spray a while back spontaneously. The shopkeeper sold it to me by demonstrating the ease of using this for a quite top up clean in between thorough makeup brush cleaning. To be honest I haven’t used it because I just clean them properly each time instead. However, I thought let’s change this and make use of this gorgeous product. All you do is spray a little onto a piece of kitchen roll and swirl the brush in the formula until the brush is clean. I tried it today and it worked wonders! I won’t be replacing my cleaning routine but this is great for a mid-week top up which I will do from now on! I also think it would be great to take away on any trips where cleaning makeup brushes can be tricky! I love the gentle alcohol-free formula of this.
I’ve heard so much hype about the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish but have never tried it! I treated myself to a discounted Liz Earle beauty box at Christmas and I think it’s time to try it! I usually just use my drugstore face wash to cleanse my face but I think April calls for something a bit more luxury! It is enriched with cocoa butter and calming ingredients such as chamomile so this sounds amazing. I can’t wait to remove any London grime and makeup with this product!
I’ve recently become a fan of Ren and their global protection face cream. So, what better time to try their Evercalm mask? It’s designed for sensitive skin and sounds a perfect mask to pack some moisture into my skin. I love nourishing face masks so could this be my new go to? I am looking for a new face mask after all! It claims to strengthen the protective moisture barrier and help skin cope with stress – amazing!
I’ve wanted to try this product for a while but I was trying to use up my other products first. I can’t wait any longer so I’m going to be adding this to my routine in April. I have already tried it and I love the refreshing peppermint flavour. It instantly wakes me up! The Beeswax sounds lovely and moisturising too. People rave about Burt’s Bees and I just love the brand. I also prefer lip balms in a stick form as I hate having to wash my hands after applying one from a pot.
I normally wear a waterproof mascara by the brand Seventeen. However, after discovering they have stopped selling my go to mascara I thought I would be brave and try a new one. I’ve had this Benefit mascara in my box for a while now and opted for Brown for a more natural look. Let me tell you, I love this! Although it’s not waterproof, it doesn’t smudge as much as my waterproof mascara! And it makes my lashes look heavenly. I can see why bloggers love the curved applicator and I am sold.
I’ve recently been concerned about making sure my face is protected from the sun to prevent any premature ageing. I received this face sun protection cream in my Beauty Advent Calendar last Christmas. I thought I would try it out now as we are getting more hours of sunlight a day at the moment. It is a tad greasy but it absorbs quickly and I can put up with that for piece of mind. I also love the fact it is geared towards sensitive skin.
This little sample came in an online order and it is a BB Cream that’s supposed to reduce redness. Sounds good to me. I do love a good BB cream so am looking forward to using this one. Have you used this product before?
