March Favourites

The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter

This is my all time favourite body butter. I have been waiting to use it for ages as I got it before Christmas but I needed to use up all my other moisturisers and butters before I used this. It’s so luxurious and thick and melts into your skin like a dream. I use it once a day and my skin smells amazing! Coconut is my favourite scent but all of the butters are gorgeous, I do like the Strawberry and Satsuma ones too. I’m pretty sure they have changed the packaging on this now but I’m sure the butter itself is still as amazing.

The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector

Again this is another trusty body shop product. I first learnt about this as my brother uses it and he is a racing car mechanic and his hands are so dry and well battered really. My hands have been really dry recently, probably due to the horrible British weather we are experiencing. I do have really bad eczema between my thumb and finger on my left hand and this cream helps to soothe it so much. It’s a very thick cream which I shall probably do a review on as you can tell from the bottle this is a firm favourite of mine. It’s not a very pleasant smell but it’s so moisturising and thick, probably only good for you if you do suffer from very dry hands. This has been a saviour for me, thank you body shop.

Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Cream

This foot cream is from the Burt’s Bees tips and toes kit but you can buy a full sized product which I think I may have to as this one is now empty. My feet have been feeling rather neglected this year as I have been rushed off my feet teaching and just being a busy bee! So this product is such a saviour for my run down feet. I wouldn’t call it a cream it’s more of a yellow thick gel. I rub this into my feet then I pop on some moisturising cotton socks to help it sink into my feet. This seriously smells amazing, like coconut but with a subtle minty smell too.

Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter

The first make-up product in my March favourites is the well known Revlon lip butters this one is in tutti-frutti. I’m not overly keen on the shade of this as I’m pretty pale right now and in desperate need of a tan. Although I know this will be the perfect colour for Summer. It’s an orange colour but these lip butters are so glossy and super moisturising on your lips. The packaging is also so lovely and the colours of the tubes represent the colour inside, which is helpful. I want to pick up some pink shades and I really like the look of the watermelon one. I can see a spending spree coming up, eeeek.

Opi Nail Envy Original Strength

I have this nail strengthener in the original formula and also the matte. I got the matte first and wasn’t overly keen on it. Then I saw both of the polishes up for grabs on buyapowa for like £13.00 and had to snap them up! I have been using this original formula and have been enjoying it much more than the matte one. It’s lovely and glossy on your nails and you can also use it below nail varnish as a strengthening base coat. It has helped strengthen my nails up and I had a problem with brittleness and peeling which this has also really helped with.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation

I got this foundation from boots in a 3 for 2 just the other day in shade 52 which is vanilla. This is a pretty light colour but I don’t seem to have any foundations which are light enough for me to wear when I don’t have a tan or any fake tan on my skin. The first thing I noticed when I swatched this was the smell. Wow! I have never smelt a foundation like it, it’s really fruity and just amazing. It also gives a really lovely natural coverage. I don’t want to reveal much more about this as I’m going to do a review on it but just an amazing foundation which sits firmly in my favourites.

La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo

I have been using this for a few months now. I originally got it from some pharmaceutical website but not too sure on the name, but you can get it from boots. This has really helped to clear minor imperfections on my face. I have like small blackheads on my nose and chin and this has really smoothed at my skin and they’re barely visible now. It’s not a quick fix product but you can tell how much I have been using it as I have lost the lid oops. It is on it’s last legs but has lasted me like 3 months. I shall do a full review of this product as I most certainly will be repurchasing!
