March Favourites

I haven't ever really sat down and done a monthly favourites before so I thought March would be as good a month as any to start. So here we go ...

Dior Nude BB Cream - 02 I'm a sucker when it comes to BB creams but this one literally breaks the mould! I have tried so many and haven't found one that gives just the right amount of coverage without feeling sticky on the skin or too little coverage that I end up applying loads of products on top. Until now :) this stuff is blooming amazing! I'm so happy with it! It does have a high price tag being £30 but I swear its so worth it! A little bit goes such a long way and it evens the skin tone perfectly! It was actually the only thing that I found covered my blemishes whilst having a bad skin week previously, as it didn't make them look too dry or as if I'd used loads of product! New holy grail product for me!

E45 Moisturising Lotion - in the pump version! Ok I have really dry skin, and I do swear by the Body Shop Body Butters, but when I'm eczema flakes up I tend to go for fragrance free products. This moisturiser is pretty standard :) it feels nice on the skin. The scent disappears when applied and it really does a good job of keeping my skin feeling hydrated through out the day! I think it was about £4.99 But I have really loved using this through March.

Dainty Doll - Money Talks Blusher in Bronze I did a post featuring this blusher in my Dainty Doll haul but since then I have used this bronzing powder every day for contouring and I love it! It's the perfect shade on my pale skin and I got it for something ridiculous like £2.99 off Amazon! I really hope they're not discontinuing the range but I'd definitely advice everyone to check it out!

Benefit Fake Up - 02 Medium! I love Fake Up using it on myself and showing to all the lovely ladies that come to the counter! It gives great coverage under the eyes, keeping them hydrated for up to 6 hours with Vitamin E and Apple Seed it really does feel silky soft on application. It costs £18.50 so I'd recommended popping along to your local Benefit Counter if you fancy being matched up a colour to find the best one for you! I picked no.2 for myself as I found the lightest shade no.1 a bit to white toned.

Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream - Sample Size I know everyone and there mother has spoken about this product but it is fantastic. I'm speaking about it from a blemish perspective though. Recently I've had a few pesky spots that just haven't vanished leaving red marks behind and very uneven skin. The amazing 8 hour balm has done wonders in helping put moisture back into the skin and helping reduce this. It's just awesome for everything!

Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Peel and Reveal Revitalizing Mask! I think this retails at £25 'This radiance - revealing facial mask combines vitamin rich Cabernet grapeseed extract with the refining powers of alpha and beta hydroxy acids. It's multi-benefit formula retexturizes and exfoliates as it minimizes the appearance of pores and fine lines'
I'd pretty much agree with all of the above! I love this mask, not only does it smell fab it leaves my skin feeling so soft and even! Plus, as long s you let it dry completely! Peeling off the mask is the most satisfying thing ever!

Well I hope you enjoyed my first monthly favourites! :) I enjoyed rambling about some of my favourite things of the month! I'd love to read about some of yours so if you've done a favourites please leave me a link :)
