March Favourites

I am very behind with my blog posts so I sincerely apologise for this blog post being two weeks late, trying to work full time with multiple chronic illnesses is truly kicking my butt but here we are eventually with my favourite things during March.

LilSpa Regenerating Hemp Seed Face Oil
I have been using this face oil from Lilspa on and off since before Christmas and honestly my skin just loves it. I have more drier skin with some oiliness around my nose and chin at the end of the day and I've really loved using this face oil in my evening skincare routine with my LilSpa Gua Sha as a little pamper, I've even been using it in my morning skincare routine on the days when my skin just looks and feels super dry. I love that even though this is a more intense face oil, my makeup still layers really nicely over the top and I don't find my skin being any extra oily towards the end of the day. After speaking to Suzanne who owns LilSpa, she actually told me that this face oil can actually be a multi-use product so you don't just have to use it on your face.

Bubble & Raar Wax Melts
We all know that I am such a Bubble & Raar addict so it's no surprise that her Jar of Hearts wax melts are in my monthly favourites, particularly the Strawberry & Rhubarb scent because it is literally the most gorgeous, uplifting scent I've ever tried for my home. You get 50g of wax melts for £6.50 and you only need a couple of hearts every time you burn them, I generally use about 4/5 hearts with each melt and that works perfectly for my wax burner. I love that Dani sells these jars of wax melts with the cutest little scoops for you to use too.

Pixi Beauty Vitamin Wakeup Mist
I'm fairly new to Pixi Beauty but I got this Vitamin Wakeup Mist in a subscription box I think and recently starting trying it out during March. I use it as a post-skincare mist and as a bit of a makeup setting mist once I've finished my barely there makeup for work as it's so refreshing and leaves a lovely glow to the skin. I love that it can be used anytime during the day that you want whether you need a skin refresh, to help hydrate or to add a protective veil to your makeup. 

Dermalogica Breakout Clearing Booster
I have been a huge fan of the Breakout Clearing Booster since I received it and this month is no surprise. I've had a couple of really annoying breakouts and this booster has tackled them without drying my skin out which for someone with dry skin is an actual game changer! It's filled with salicylic acid and niacinamide so it'll tackle the most stubborn breakouts and it's only £21. You can either use the Breakout Clearing Booster as an all over serum or as on the spot treatment (I do the latter) and it works perfectly for me, plus it lasts even longer if you use it as a spot treatment. I've even tried it on those stubborn breakouts that are like a bump under your skin and it even tackles those without leaving your skin a dry, flaky mess.

NYX Bare With Me Concealer Serum
I picked up this Bare With Me concealer after my favourite from Makeup Revolution ran out and I was just finding it too heavy. Thankfully this concealer comes in 13 different shades so there's one pale enough for me, it has a vegan formula and gives undetectable coverage with up to 24hrs of hydration. You literally need the smallest amount of concealer to do your whole face and I've actually noticed that when I get visibly dry skin around breakouts, they actually start showing through my makeup mid-way through the day but thanks to the Bare With Me concealer I don't notice that happening from the moment I apply it to the time I take it off.

Hourglass No.28 Primer & Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick
I got the chance to try out Hourglass for the first time last month (keep your eyes peeled for a blog post all about my experience on my blog very soon) and since then I've tried the No.28 Primer and the Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick because they kindly gave me a little sample of each to test out. I can honestly see the hype behind Hourglass makeup and I've quickly become a huge fan.

As I've already mentioned I have really dry skin no matter what the time of year it is so when they recommended trying their No.28 Primer which is perfect for drier skin types as it's a ultra-hydrating primer and serum all wrapped up in one (perfect if you're travelling and don't want to carry too many products). It helps to soften fine lines and wrinkles whilst also extending the wear time of your foundation, it even repels water which I didn't know till I came to write this post which helps keep your makeup looking fresh. This will be even more handy for me as we're getting into hay fever season so my eyes always water and I can never keep makeup on around my eyes so this primer will be perfect for it. I'll definitely be purchasing the full size once I run out of this sample and I'll be sure to write a full review on it including some wear test photos.

Because of my dry skin, I usually shy away from stick foundations but my ways were changed when I tested out the Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick as this foundation stick allows you to get a full coverage base without having to wear layers and layers of makeup. It's designed to be a foundation and concealer in one, giving you 12 hours of coverage. The formula is also designed to adjust to your body temperature to effortlessly blend into your skin. I have used this foundation stick as an all over foundation but also for work I've been using it to conceal under my eyes and on a couple of spots/areas of redness and it works perfectly each way. I was surprised at how lightweight the Hourglass makeup, like I genuinely forgot I was wearing makeup and almost rubbed my face as if I wasn't wearing anything on multiple ocassions. 

What have you been loving this month?

Speak to you next time!
