Beauty | Products I Will Be Re Buying

As a beauty lover, I get through a LOT of products. Whether it's new makeup, skincare, fake tan or beauty accessories, I seem to always be trying something new, and needless to say my bathroom cupboards are bursting. 

I do occasionally come across the odd product that doesn't make the cut or live up to my expectations or its own hype, but the beauty market is booming at the moment, and there are so many amazing brands out there offering game changing products that it's rare I come across a really bad one. On the flip side of this, as much as I seem to like the vast majority of the products I review, I don't always buy them again. With that in mind, today's post is all about the products I have recently run out of and will be re buying, and the reasons why- to me, this gives them a really big stamp of approval as it proves I've loved them enough to use them up completely, and re buy, rather than move onto the next 'must have.'

April's Beauty Favourites

It's been a while since I've posted a 'monthly favourites' round up. I've been pretty boring when it comes to my product choices and there hasn't been anything that I've loved enough to write about up until now, but thankfully there are a few new additions to my beauty routine which have made the cut, and I'm excited to share them with you all. 

My favourites for April are a mix of products I've bought myself and gifted products, but as always I only ever feature gifted products in a favourites post if I absolutely love them. The rule for me is if I like them enough to re buy them, they make the cut! I've got some skincare, haircare, makeup, and even a new teeth whitening product (and discount code) to talk about today, all of which I've been using and loving over the past few months.

Skincare | My Top Picks For Spot Prone Skin

Now don't get me wrong, I love makeup, and am always adding to my every growing collection, but I also have a real soft spot for amazing skincare as well. Having suffered with my fair share of breakouts throughout my teenage years and twenties, I guess you could say I'm always conscious of how my skin looks underneath makeup, and as a result if my skin is bad, I feel bad...No matter how much of it I'm wearing.

SkinnyTan | 7 Day Tan & After Glow Gloss Review

I'm a big believer that a good tan not only makes you look better, but can also make you feel more confident in your own skin, and apparently when it's applied correctly, can even knock few pounds off as well. Needless to say I'm a big fan! 

Skinny Tan* is a brand that I only started using only about 6 months ago, and previously reviewed their Tan & Tone Oil on the blog (read the full review here, but clue: it's really good!) Last month I was lucky enough to receive a bottle of their 7 day tanner, as well as their After Glow Gloss, and couldn't wait to try it out.

Makeup | 6 Of The Best Dupes

When it comes to makeup, as much as I do love Instagrammable, high end products, I’m also a sucker for a dupe. You can’t beat discovering a product that is pretty much identical to a high end one, but a snip of the price, especially if you get through products at the rate I do. There's been some controversy recently on social media about dupes, with some higher end brands getting annoyed at our high street faves copying them, but in my eyes it's a total compliment to the popularity of the product. Plus, only a small percentage of people can afford to spend a small fortune on cosmetics, so I think it's great that more affordable brands are offering versions of our favourite 'hero products.'

Skincare | The Ordinary Review

Today's skincare review has come from another social media inspired purchase- I just can't seem to resist when it comes to hearing about much hyped products on Twitter and Instagram! Much like what happened with the Violet Voss Holy Grail palette (read more about that here) I heard that The Ordinary Skincare had taken the beauty industry by storm, and that products were flying off the shelves, so I had to get involved and bought three products from the range.

Wash & Dry Your Makeup Brushes In Seconds With StylPro

Cleaning and drying my makeup brushes has to be one of my least favourite things to do. Not only do I find the cleaning part such a long chore, but being an impatient person, I also hate waiting for them to dry. I heard about the StylPro makeup brush cleaner on social media, and didn't quite believe that it would not only wash but also DRY my brushes in seconds...So, does it actually work or is it too good to be true?!
