March 2015 Beauty Favourites


The end of March is upon us and spring is here...well, it's on its way at least. Over the past four weeks I've been attempting to calm my skin down after a reaction to something and begin to establish a new cruelty free skincare routine. I'm certainly not there yet but I'm getting there.

Ted Baker Body Lotion*
Ted Baker body products are wonderful. The packaging is very sweet and I love that this lotion comes with a pump. I've been using it everyday on my legs and it sinks in almost instantly whilst moisturising perfectly.

Bomb Cosmetics
This is more of a general brand favourite that a particular product because Bomb Cosmetics have a lot of really wonderful products in their range. I've been particularly enjoying their bath products and for some reason they appeal to me a little more than the bubble bars and bath bombs from Lush, but I'm not sure why.

Heal Gel Face*
My skin had a pretty bad reaction to something at the very start of March and I'm very thankful to past Jennie who stashed away a bottle of Heal Gel Face & a bottle of Heal Gel Intensive* because they helped soothe and calm my skin so much. They're incredibly expensive products but if you're particularly interested in trying one I would really recommend the intensive version. 

Good Things Manuka Honey Daily Moisturiser
I bought this a couple of weeks ago hoping that it would be gentle and not irritate my skin any more than it already was. Thankfully it's a really nice product and I like it, although I can't use it around my eye area because it can make them water a little.

Organic Surge Extra Care Replenishing Facial Oil*
The extra care range from Organic Surge is a little more expensive than their other products, but they're packed full of even lovelier ingredients. This oil has quickly become one of my favourite oils of all time because it's so lightweight. It hydrates my skin brilliantly and sinks in completely. If you have dry, sensitive skin this could be one to try.

Burt's Bees Lip Shine
A sheer lip gloss that is also moisturising = me needing one in every colour, especially when it's smooth and not sticky at all. I'm not huge on the fruity scent, but I'm happy to look past that because the formula is so lovely. 

Soap & Glory Thick & Fast Mascara
Although I'm not really fussy with mascara it has been a little while since I've used one that I really enjoyed and there's something about this one that I really like. It's incredibly reliable and gives my lashes a bit of length, a bit of volume and a bit of definition without leaving them feeling crispy. The wand is quite large which I think will be a bit of a love/hate thing, but I'm a real fan.

Are there any beauty products that you have particularly loved over the past month?

  2. I'm a fan of the thick and fast mascara too :) Although it did take me a while to get used to its gigantic brush! I don't have any bath bombs at the moment but I have tried bomb cosmetics before and really like them :)

  5. I've heard about Bomb cosmetics on a few blogs now and I'm really wanting to try them out. I'm not really a bath bomb person but I've heard that they sell candles as well so I'll have to have a nosy at their website when I get the time.

  8. I've only just become a fan of Soap and Glory after buying their Brow Archery, which I love. My latest mascara is about to run out so I've been on the lookout for a replacement - thanks for the recommendation your description ticks all the boxes for what I'm after! x

  18. I just love your blog photography! Everything is always so perfectly arranged.

    I hope your skin is back to normal soon. That's such a big fear I have, with all the different products people interested in skincare and makeup try, you just never know what could cause an unpleasant reaction.

    I like the sound of the Heal Gel and the Organic Surge face oil in particular. I like to think oils are slightly safer but I have no clue if that's true.

  19. YouTube user CloudyApples made a video about her first impression on straight-up using manuka honey on acne. I'd be really interested to see how that compares to lotion versions. And ahh, Bomb Cosmetics makes such cute products :) -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's
