Spring Favorites 2014

Spring Winners

Spring has been and gone and so it's the time when I Like to share with you what I have been loving this season...

U Skin Solutions Moisturising Day Cream: I finished this moisturiser on its expiry date, which is such a relief because I don't like using skincare past its use by date. This is a moisturiser that I have really treasured because it has made my skin look so healthy and radiant. I have had no dry skin problems, no overly oily skin, and my skin tone has evened out since using this moisturiser. There isn't much scent to this but it is super light and just the right amount of hydration for my skin. I also have written a review on some of the U skin Solutions Skincare range here.

Blinc Mascara: I have been using this almost everyday this spring because I tend to play with makeup a bit more when the weather gets warmer. This mascara simply doesn't budge until you want it too. If I wipe my eyes, or get a bit teary ( Spring is the season for weddings remember), there is absolutely no smudging. This mascara creates a tube around the lashes so its not as harsh as some waterproof mascaras where you must scrub and scrub with alcohol makeup remover to get it off. No way! I just pop a cotton pad on my eyes with warm water then gently pull with my finger tips and they slide off! Remember I said gently. Read my review here.

Furless cosmetics blending brush: this blending brush is just the right thickness for my eyes. I have another but its too thick and then my eye-shadow just goes everywhere. I am also a really big fan of the long handle that this brush has, I feel that the longer the handle the softer my touch can be on my eyes. Furless Cosmetics do not use animal hair in their brushes so I am very comfortable using them. Read my review here.

Eco Minerals Kabuki Brush: Another Brush I have been reaching for is this Kabuki brush. In fact I have been using it for any face powder I own, weather it be loose powder or baked in a pan. Either way this brush has super soft bristles and doesn't feel abrasive to my skin in the slightest. I absolutely love the bamboo handle and the animal friendly bristles too. Eco Minerals review here.

Lush The Olive Branch Shower Gel: I am pretty sure that I mentioned this in my last seasons favourites but I am still not ready to give it up! Shower gels are so easy to use and this gives such a nice lather. I love that the scent is subtle enough to pop my favourite scented moisturiser on top without it smelling all mixed up.

Headbands: I have been wearing headbands around the house a lot recently. Most of the time I cant find bobby pins to keep my fringe away from my face, the rest of the time I just like the look of something different. The top one I got in the city in a store that sells Indian inspired clothing. The Purple head band I got from a local gift shop that sells an amazing brand called Natural Life and I absolutely love the style of clothes that they sell. This is really stretchy material and it is really comfortable. I'm hoping to get a few more because they feel very Renee.

I hope you enjoyed my list. What have you been loving this Spring?

Have Fun!

  1. I've just bought The Olive Branch from Lush and I can't wait to try it! Also, those makeup brushes look great. I am never good at knowing what brushes to get. I should look into Furless ones :)

    1. Furless brushes are really soft and very reasonably priced. x

  2. Thank you for commenting on my blog! I haven't got a beauty advent calendar this year but I really want to next year! xx

  3. I really want to try the Olive Branch Shower Gel - it sounds so lovely xx
