March Favourites 2013

I don't know about you guys but March was a crazy busy month for me, it was the good kind of busy, weddings, work, catching up with friends etc. But nonetheless, I found it hard finding time to take a break, let alone catch up with my blog. So for that I apologise, but I thought a fun way to remind you all that I am still around was with some monthly favourites, I have a variety of products to tell you about this month, and I really love all of them! Alright, let's get into the fun stuff...
Michael Todd Blue Green Algae Antibacterial toner- I had heard to much blog/YouTube hype about these products that I just couldn't resist giving them a go... I've been using this for a few months now and I really like it. I have dry skin so am wary of any toners because they tend to make my skin feel tight and uncomfortable, this one doesn't at all and I think it has really helped with the condition of my skin, although that could be a number of products, I'll be doing a kin care post soon to tell you about what's working for my skin type and how I am readying myself for Winter...
Burt's Bees Body Wash- I love all Burt's Bees products! This is a new favourite, it is mostly made from natural ingredients, smells great, and doesn't leave my skin feeling dry at all. I got mine at because they have a good selection and free international shipping, love it.
CoverGirl clump crusher mascara- I am not such a huge mascara lover but this one is pretty fool proof! As the name suggests, it is a very clump-free mascara, it separates my lashes well and doesn't smudge, it's also easy to take off at the end of the night, always a bonus.
Revlon Smoky Shadow stick in Torch- This cream eyeshadow stick is dual ended but I mostly use the light end as an eye shadow base, it is easy to apply and doesn't tug on the eyelid as some cream shadows can. The colour is a more shimmery version of my eyelid colour so it works really well as a base, doesn't crease on me, and lasts all day. Well done, Revlon.
Rimmel ScandalEyes nude eyeliner- There once was a time where if you wanted a nude eyeliner you would have to head to a department store to fork over quite a few hard earned dollars, but thanks to Rimmel those days are over. I am not against spending money on good quality products, but I do love when things like this become available at a more reasonable price. Nude eyeliners are great for putting on the waterline to get rid of any redness and make the eyes look brighter, I also find this one quite nice for putting in the inner corner to brighten my eye area without putting anything too white or shimmery there.
Voluspa candle in Santiago Huckleberry- Oh my. This candle is amazing. This is probably my favourite favourite this month, its just beautiful. I can't even describe the scent, so if you come across any Voluspa candles, give this one a sniff, it's sweet but not too sweet and makes my room smell amazing. It's burning next to me right now and it just makes me happy!
Trilogy Everything Balm- Last but not least is this little gem from Trilogy, it is sold as an 'everything balm' which seems pretty accurate to me. The reason it has been a favourite this month is because something very sneaky bit my foot while I was out earlier in the month and my skin seemed to react to it a little, I tried various products and in the end this is the things that seemed to calm the redness and irritation, I was quite pleased!
I hope you all had a lovely March and enjoyed the long weekend!

  1. I haven't come across the Voluspa candles before, but I'll keep an eye out. I usually find one that I love and stick to it. I've had the L'Occitane Cherry Blossom ones for over a year and a half now! As for new products. I picked up the Napoleon Off Duty Tinted Moisturizer and I LOVE it! I've culled my everyday beauty products to three! I hope April is a wonderful month for you :)

  2. I've also been loving the Clump Crusher mascara. I hated the original Lash Blast but this one is a winner!

  3. My favourite beauty product this month is Burt Bees mango lip balm. I think it's their best one so far! I thought I lost it the other day and I was looking everywhere for it. Turns out it was under the bed (along with a LOT of dust, haha).

    x Jasmine

  4. Um you are putting algae on your face? Wow you thought my clear shoes were bad haha. I need a new mascara - will give this one a go!
