           Can't believe it's May already, seems like only yesterday I was tucking into my christmas dinner! Generally, April has been a good month for me but I can't say the same for my poor bank account. I know I did a post a couple of weeks back of my favourite products at the moment, but they weren't my all time favourites for the month, but this is!

So my favourites this month are a bit random. All the products this month that I overused to the extent that I'm pretty much running out of them already (I brought majority of these products under six weeks ago!)

Nivea Anti Perspirant 48hr deodorant
Batiste Dry Shampoo in Paisley 

These are two products I've relied on heavily this month.
Nivea Anti-Perspirant 48hr Deodorant
I have really sensitive skin, so 'spray' deodorant usually irritates me and I'm not a massive fan of 'roll on deodorant' but I've found this product actually worked for me! It smells really nice, doesn't irritate my skin and stops me from sweating, and lets be honest that's the most important bit. It's actually on offer in Boots at the moment for about £1.50 so I've stocked up!
Batiste Dry Shampoo in Paisley
Dry shampoo has to be the greatest thing ever invented and I personally don't think there is a brand out there of dry shampoo as good as Batiste. I use it in between washes just to make my hair look 'fresher' and I usually go for tropical scent, but I picked this bottle up purely because I liked the packaging, and I'm glad I did because it smells like strawberry laces (as in the sweets!) Long live Batiste!

MaxFactor MASTERPIECE Colour Precision Eyeshadow in Pearl Beige
Inglot Lipstick in 230

MaxFactor MASTERPIECE Colour Precision Eyeshadow in Pearl Beige
I love this product! When I was in Boots the other day, I was speaking to the woman on the MaxFactor counter about different products and how I wanted a face highlighter, and she suggested that I should use this eyeshadow. I would have never chosen this item myself, but it does the trick perfectly. It's really pigmented but subtle at the same time, so it truly helps in my attempt to look more awake in the mornings! 
Inglot Lipstick in 230
I usually prefer nude lips but when I saw this shade I just had to have it! It is the most vibrant red lipstick I have ever used or owned in my life and the great thing about it is it literally lasts for hours, so its a steal at only £10! Plus it leaves my lips feeling really nourished despite being a matt finish lipstick. This is the only Inglot lipstick I own and I need more! I love so many of their products and I really can't fault this lipstick.

MUA Nail Lacquer in Lush Lilac
Essie Nail Lacquer in Rosebowl

MUA Lush Lilac
I know there has been a big hoohar lately regarding MUA lack of originality with packaging making it look rather suspiciously like Essie Nail Lacquers but it doesn't bother me. I know it's a bit unfair on Essie, but I really like their packaging anyways so for me it's a bonus. I really like MUA nail lacquers because they dry quick and look like an expensive brand when in reality they're only £1 each! What a bargain! I love this shade because it's so versatile and perfect for summer!
Essie in Rosebowl
This colour is just perfect! As you know I received this colour in Aprils glossybox and I've been in love ever since. Essie are notorious for brilliant nail lacquers and they definitely didn't let me down in this colour, it stay bright, it's long lasting and goes on with ease.

Original Source Shower Gel in Chocolate and Mint
Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel
Primark Sultry Lashes

Original Source Chocolate and Mint Shower gel
Shower gel leaving me smelling like After Eight chocolate mints, need I say more? Loved this shower gel so much!
Clarins Cleansing Gel
I've mentioned this before but I really don't think I can stress to you how amazing this product is! It leaves my skins fresh and soft every time I use it, guaranteed. It has to be the best cleansing gel I have ever used and I would recommend you go buy this immediately. The bottle I'm using at the moment is smaller than the regular bottle as I got this in a set, and the original sized bottle is around £19 (I purchased it the other day!) and it is so worth that. Honestly you cannot go wrong with this product and I mean that!
Primark False eyelashes
These have to be my favourite false eyelashes and needless to say I have stocked up this month! I would say you can wear each pair about three times which is definitely value for money considering they're only a £1 per set. The glue they come with is surprisingly good, but I always like to wear  them with my own eyelash glue just to be on the safe side.

That's it for this months favourites, and hopefully next month I'll have some new exciting products to show you!
So what are your April favourites? Do you like/dislike any of these products?


  1. I have wanted to try the pure melt cleansing gel for a while now as I have read it is very very good. I am a massive fan of Essie nail polishes too :)

    1. I definitely recommend you try the Pure Melt Cleansing Gel, it's honestly a dream I can't rave about it enough!

      I love your blog! :)
