March………ing! Into Spring with My Favourites.
Spring is here, Yay! It’s been a nice month too and i had a week of it off work. Time once again for my monthly favourites.
1. La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo (+)
I went into Boots last month and the rep for La Roche- Posay was there. She was lovely and gave me a great deal of interesting facts about the company and how they prefer to use most of the profits to work on new products and improve existing ones rather than advertising campaigns. She gave me a free seven day sample of the new Redermic moisturizer, (which i love, by the way) and as i tend to get hormonal breakouts occasionally, i thought i would try the darling of the blogging world, Effaciar Duo +. It is amazing and takes that horrible angry throbbing and redness straight out of any spot within a couple of hours. A great product.
2. Guerlain Météorites Perles Light Diffusing Perfecting Primer.
I did feature this one in a bad buy category on my website because the nib had broken off when i pumped out the product. I was annoyed because it cost’s so much; however, i still like the product very much. It does give that ‘glow from within’ on the face and makes pores appear a great deal smaller too. A tiny pump is all that’s needed for the whole face. I have been using this for over the month under my current foundation, featured next.
3. Chanel Vitalumiere Satin Smoothing Fluid Makeup. 30 Cendré.
I did a swap with my mum. She got my Guerlain Parure Foundation and i got this one. I normally opt for 20 light beige but mum had this slightly darker shade. It does add a bit of warmth to my skin and that’s needed at the moment because i still have the paler winter hue going on. I haven’t had to use my bronzing powders as much while i have been wearing this either. If you have drier skin, this is ideal for you as it has an oil base. I normally prefer Vitalumiere Aqua, which is the holy Grail foundation for oilier skins like mine, as it contains more of a watery base. This one is nice and stays on for hours too.
4. Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush 65 Espiègle.
Sorry because i believe this one may be discontinued now. I just love the pale coral/pink. It makes it such a unique colour and is ideal for Spring too. I wear it with Rouge Coco lipstick, Jersey Rose and Dior Rouge lipstick, 757 Souveraine.
5. Garinier Micellar Cleansing Water.
I have written a whole post on this here. It is great for the price, (£3.99 in Tesco) and i’ve already bought a back up. Will be using this one for quite sometime i think.
6. Avon Soft Musk Perfumed Body Spray.
I still buy Avon products occasionally and Soft Musk body cream and sprays have been my fav’s for many years. I love the bath and body ranges Avon do and i have been using this spray for past month. Can’t go wrong with it really.
7. Kérastase Resistance Volumactive Volume Expansion Spray.
I use this at the roots of my damp hair. Has a lovely fragrance, which all the resistance range does and it really adds volume to the hair once blow dried. It is neither weighty or greasy and a couple of sprays is all that’s needed.
8. Dior Bronze Face & Body Self Tanning Oil Spray.
Love this. It’s so easy to use and never streaks either (I do moisturize first though). I always use tanning products during the winter months because my skin is so pale. This has a very mild odour which is not unpleasant and disappears within minutes. It gives a golden glow to the skin within a couple of hours and i’m now on my second bottle. I get it at http://www.escentual.com because it’s so much cheaper from them.
There you have it. What are your favourites for March? I would love to know. Have fun and i will see you all soon. 😉
