April Favourites


I filmed my favourites video in almost complete darkness this month (sorry) but when I came to take pictures for my blog the most amazing light appeared.. if only I could control the sun.. maybe one day. For once I feel like I have a bunch of new products to share in my monthly favourites post, I try a lot of new stuff all the time but tend to migrate back to my usuals and so every month it seems like the same old products. This month however I have discovered some amazing things, not all of which are new launches and rediscovered some old favourites. Seche Vite is an absolute must have for any polish addict, I’ve tried lots of similar formulas and tried to tell myself they’re just as good but they’re just not.. this stuff is amazing! I’m going to have a whole post dedicated to a rave review very soon. Organic Surge’s Fresh Ocean Lotion is lovely for the warmer (who am I kidding?) weather, as the name suggests it feels really fresh on the skin and absorbs quickly. Unlike winter when I’m happy to leave a thick butter to soak in to my dry skin in summer I prefer a lighter formula and this is ideal. I’ve been really into hair colour this month, I’ve dabbled with ombre, streaks and even all over colour and so the dyes I’ve tried had to make it in to my favourites. My preferred brand is Directions as they are conditioning, vegetable dyes so they’re not at all damaging and fade fast so if like me you don’t want to commit but want something a little crazy for a change they’re perfect. They last longer if you apply them to dry hair but if you use them as a conditioner (as directed) they fade within a couple of washes for me. The Crazy Color seemed to last a little longer but either way it’s a great way to experiment if your hair is light enough. My last standout for the month has to be the Nicki Minaj perfume which I don’t think I’ve featured at all yet.. shameful! The fragrance is floral but very sweet and summery so don’t let that put you off.. I’m the last in line for flowery scents but this is lovely and an absolute bargain.. and it has pink hair!!!

    I love both directions and crazy colours hair dyes… got quite a collection which has been staring at me since I got a bit bored of being brown… hehe

    Also your list has some products I’m loving, too. The loreal micellar solution is going to be on my April favourites, too, it’s soo good and so cheap compared to other products

    Also seche vite, finally used it and wow! Won’t be in this months favourites, though as I’ve not had it for long, same with the loreal rouge caresse in tempting lilac, loving it but only had it a few days (worn it obsessively since then though!)

    Looking forward to watching your video later, see what you say aboit other products. I wanted to get the elf maximum coverage concealer in my recent order but it was out of stock, the one I got instead hasn’t beem great, but never mind 🙂

    I love your new hair colour, I was just wondering how many washes does the directions colour last??
