March Favourites


Avene Eau Thermale Thermal Spring Water 150ml - £6.50 
I bought this on a whim in the sales after seeing glowing reviews then never really used it. For some reason my cheeks have become sensitive (I love combination skin) so have been spraying a small amount on my face after cleansing. This spray, as claims, soothes and calms skin and is also great for freshening up make up. I'm going to start making more effort to use this from now on.


Some times I get so caught up in the array of bright lipsticks available I tend to forget about natural shades then complain about not having any so decided to buy a nice sensible "nude" type colour. I picked the colour Please Me which is a matte soft dusky pink that is very subtle as long as it isn't layered. This is a perfect everyday colour and beats all of the washy out nudes everyone seems to love. The only downside to such a pretty lipstick is it's very drying like most mattes but as matte is my favourite texture, I can deal with using a little more lip balm.


Philosophy The Microdelivery Purifying Peel - $42.00 
This one minute enzyme peel is a wonder product for me and has been for some time. This gives skin a good shake up when it's looking a bit dull and dreary and as it contains Salycic Acid gives acne the boot. As much as I love it, it stings/burns so can be a little over powering depending on how sensitive your skin is.


DHC Deep Cleansing Oil - £4.50 
I had this little bottle in a Glossybox and initially dismissed the idea of using it as a cleanser. As I have Oily/Combo skin I didn't think it would be right so used as a gel eyeliner remover. When I decided to give it a go I was surprised at how soft my skin felt with out any greasy residue left behind. This would be perfect as a night cleanser during harsh weather when your skin needs that extra TLC.


Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream - £14.00/£20.00 -
Another Glossybox sample I've started using through March. This is the only the second eye cream I've tried and liked. It's light, sinks in straight away and leaves the eye area feeling nourished without that thick and heavy consistency.
