March Favourites...

Last month I purchased far too many products, I'm talking five lots of boots 3 for 2 offers and then some. It was also my birthday at the end of the month and I accumulated a few more! Yet it was payday on Monday and you would think I didn't need anymore but I've already made 3 online orders and had a shopping spree! Will I ever learn? Probably not! But at least I have lots to blog about! Is that an acceptable excuse?!

So although I had lots for my birthday I decided only having had them for a few days, that it's a little unfair to already claim them as favourites based on first impressions! So your lucky, this post isn't the waffle it could have been!

Ramble over...



This month I got the amazing opportunity to try out the Magnitone Pulsar and this has already become a firm favourite! I have always suffered with blemishes, however since using this beauty, they have really kept at bay for the first time in a very long time! However after just two days of not using this beauty, due to pure laziness of course, I gained three pimples scattered across my face like some kind of dot-to-dot book! I think it's safe to say this is now firmly back in my skincare routine!

I was on the lookout for a new face scrub when I spotted the Melvita Young Skin Facial Scrub in my local TK Maxx,  I was really happy as I've wanted to try something from the Melvita range for quite some time now. This scrub is quite gritty and rough, so I try to only use it once a week, but I've found that it leaves my skin so smooth and the product actually feels like it works! It also helps to keep my spots at bay and is now also a firm favourite in my skincare routine.

Onto moisturising, I swear this is a monthly favourites and not a skincare post! I have used the Clinique moisture surge for years after I first received a sample in a bonus gift and although my skin is usually combination, it can at times change and become severely dry, especially around my nose, mouth and chin. I love this product as a little goes a long way and it really hydrates the skin leaving it super soft and smooth.

Next up is The Body Shop Eau de Toilette in White Musk Smoky Rose , I have accumulated a little collection of perfumes at the moment but I like to have one or two that I can spritz the hell out of during the day, and this one is one of those. The scent is immediately quite strong but settles quickly to leave a lovely  sweet floral scent, It may be a little sickly for some but I adore it and will definitely repurchase it when it's all gone, which won't be long at the rate I'm going!

I'm one of those girls that barely goes without eyeliner, bottom line, i feel naked without it! So I'm always trying out new eyeliners! I do tend to swap them about a bit and just use whichever I'm feeling that day, but this new Maybelline Lasting Drama Black Shock Pen has really been taking over my makeup bag at the moment. It is a gel like formula in a pen form, meaning it's easy to apply but is highly pigmented, gives good shine and has fantastic durability, even my Garnier micellar water struggles to budge this one!

And last but not least after falling in love with Soap and Glorys matte lipstick in Pom Pom I headed back for a second helping and came home with this Satin Lipstick in The Missing Pink. It's basically my perfect nude! It's long wearing, has fantastic shine and glides on the lips like butter, I'm hooked! 

So there you have it, my March favourites! How quick did that come around? What were your favourites during the month of March?
