March Favourites

Hello Beauties

I'm back again with another Favourites post. This is just a list of the products that I have been loving through the month of March and have been using a lot.

1) Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate (£36) - I am writing an in depth post on this aswell, but in brief, I have fallen in love with this product. It has really helped my skin in looking fresh and bright. I use this at night and in the morning my skin looks a lot brighter and healthy. It sounds cliche, but this really does give you a glow overnight and you dont need a lot of product at all.

2) Barry M Speedy Dry Nail Polish (£3.99) in Eat My Dust and Pit Stop - I featured Eat My Dust in my current nail faves, but I have also been loving Pit Stop. I have swapped between these 2 colours through the month and nothing else. Eat My Dust is a baby blue and Pit Stop a muted grey/taupe with purple undertones. I have been really enjoying wearing these for the transition into Spring where the weather's been a little brighter but still cold.

3) Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm (£9.50) - I have mentioned this in my Lip Faves and Morning Skincare Routine. It is honestly the best lip balm I have ever tried and I am so glad that I discovered it. I don't think I will ever buy another lip balm again.

4) Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel (£20.50) - This was another discovery in March and another one I am so glad for. I was looking for a morning cleanser, but not an exfoliator and had heard so much about this that I thought I would give it a go. It's a really nice cleanser for the morning, leaving my skin fresh and clean without feeling dry or tight. For more information see my post here.

5) Barry M Chisel Cheeks Contour Kit  (£6.49) - I posted this on Instagram when I got it and it got so many likes, so I'm guessing it's popular with a lot of people. I love this contour kit. It has a warm brown, cool brown and highlight shade. For everyday, I use a mix of the warm and cool browns as seen here. For an evening look I will use the cool brown with the Real Techniques Bold Metals 301 Brush and then blend out with the warm brown.

6) Rosie for Autograph - EDP 30ml (£14) - This is a bit of a strange fragrance for me. When I first smelt it, from the bottle, I loved it, so I sprayed it on me. As the day went on, the different scents were really coming through. It's made from Rose Oil and this is the fragrance I dislike. I am not a fan of a heavy rose scent at all, so it might seem like a bit of an odd choice for a monthly favourite but it really is lovely. It definitely has a rose, floral scent but it's mixed with a light, fresh, sweetness at the same time. I'm not very good at describing scents at all but you should definitely have a spritz and let it sit on you for the day before buying.

Non-Beauty Favourites: First up are the Nakd Cashew Cookie Bars. I can't even describe how delicious these are. I have one everyday after lunch as it's really sweet and fills that sugar craving. It's made up of only cashew nuts and dates and therefore is not unhealthy for you. I have also gone back to loving music from the artist Banks. She has such a lovely voice and it's one I've been playing on my spotify through the month. Lastly, I have been loving the Jelly Belly Bean Reed Diffuser in Mango; the scent is amazing and fills the whole room.

What have some of your favourites been in the month of March? I'd love to know.

Thank you for reading

  1. The Barry M polish seems to be quite a popular one this month, I need to get my hands on some for cute spring nails! Rebecca | Rebecca Marie: UK Lifestyle & Music Blog xxx

    1. Oh, you definitely need to have a look at the Speedy dry range, they have some really great colours. I have so many baby pinks so I went for the baby blue colour and it is so lovely! x

  2. I've been loving the Contour kit too! It seems to work regardless of skin tone which may be why it's so popular (great price too!) x

    1. I'm so glad you like it too! It hasn't been in stock at my Boots since I got it so I'm really happy :)

  3. I've heard so many amazing things about the Khiel's midnight product - sounds like a miracle product! Love the nail polish shades!
