Excuse me whilst I have a mini freak-out over the fact that it's April yet it feels like the end of the first week of January when you're blissfully revelling in that slightly smug, satisfied feeling you get when you're still totally on top of your new year's resolutions...
...and we're back in the room. Let's leave the 'seriously, it's April already? APRIL?!' feelings at the door - because let's face it, those occur at the start of every new month/day/afternoon - and commence with some of the things I've loved throughout the month of March, shall we?
It was a time of great discovery when it comes to skincare, as I found a new favourite cleanser that - stop the press - is the only one that has ever rivalled my beloved Emma Hardie Amazing Face Moringa Cleansing Balm. Say hi to Temple Spa In The Beginning Facial Cleansing Melt, a rich balm containing exfoliating beads that melt during facial massage - they describe it as a "facial in a jar" and I'm on board with that. I've been using it as my second cleanse and am addicted to the impeccably soft yet intensely nourished way it makes my skin feel. I've also got a new obsession with the Ole Henriksen Truth Sugar Glow Polishing Mask, which essentially feels like coating your skin in honey and sugar (you'll love it or loathe it, I'm a lover) and gives some serious glowy, healthy radiance to the skin. I've also been treating my complexion to my new favourite thing; sheet masks! Perfect for a pamper session and incredible if you're in need of a timeout, Maskeraide Detox Diva has been my go-to for tired skin and Skin Republic CoQ10 + Caviar works wonders for dehydrated skin and making it feel 10x plumper.
Moving onto makeup, I feel like I've found the perfect combo for the most long-lasting, easy and gorgeous champagne eye ever - hats off to the Charlotte Tilbury Eyes To Mesmerise Cream Eyeshadow in 'Jean' which delivers just the right amount of shimmer, and give a round of applause to KIKO Water Eyeshadow in '200 Champagne'.
I'm into haircare in a way that I've never been before at the moment, and I've been really impressed by the Mark Hill Kerasatin Shampoo and Kerasatin Conditioner. With its keratin-enriched formula, this duo has made my hair that much more sleek and shiny that I haven't been able to stop running my hands through it. You probably already know about my addiction to the Smoothie Star range from Soap & Glory also, and I've been covering myself in either the Body Buttercream or the Deep Moisture Body Milk on a daily basis.
Those are the skincare, haircare and makeup bits and bobs I've been using non-stop - how about you? If you'd like to see me talk about these products in more detail along with my lifestyle favourites of the month, watch my March Favourites video here!
