March Favorites

Blogathon: Day 1 (Blogging every day of the Easter holidays)


First and foremost, Happy Easter! March seemed to come and go incredibly quickly and the time has come to complete my March favorites. Over the past month, I have tried out many products, ranging from bubble baths to moisturisers- some of which I loved and some which made me never want to go near again! Furthermore, I've been addicted to favorites videos on YouTube channels such as Zoella and Sprinkle of Glitter, so they are my inspiration for this post!



MARCH FAVORITES





 SOAP AND GLORY HAND FOOD (BOOTS)
I got this hand cream ages ago but never really got into it, but in the past month I've really been loving it! I'm trying to use it all up as I've had it for such a long time. It is perfect to use before a manicure or when your hands are feeling dry; I'd recommend it to anybody who likes sweet smells!


L'OREAL PARIS STUDIO MATT AND MESS SALT SPRAY (BOOTS)
I bought this salt spray from L'Oreal recently because I really wanted to see what all the fuss was about. I picked this up with a heat protection spray from Boots for only £4 which I think is very good! I only think this product is good when you've curled your hair- it really helps the curls stay in place and adds extra volume.


BARRY M NAIL PAINTS- GELLY HI-SHINE NAIL PAINT IN LYCHEE AND NAIL PAINT IN HOLOGRAM (BOOTS)
When I heard that the gelly nail paint range had been released at Barry M, I was hesitant to buy one in case they were a waste of money. I ended up buying one when I bought a nail paint for my friend's birthday and decided to get one for myself. I bought one in the colour 'lychee' which you'd expect to be very pale, but in fact is very noticeable and I would say there is a big difference between the ordinary polishes. I put the hologram polish on top, which is very tricky to apply evenly- but once done, looks gorgeous!


VICTORIA SECRETS RAVISHING LOVE PERFUME IN POMEGRANATE, BLACKBERRY AND LILAC (VICTORIA SECRETS)
I received this perfume for my birthday last May from one of my closest friends and wow, it smells absolutely amazing. It's really hard to describe, but it is so refreshing and reminds me of summer. I've been using this perfume for school over the last month to put me in the summer spirit and hardly needs topping up throughout the day!


AUSSIE 3 MINUTE MIRACLE DEEP CONDITIONER (BOOTS)
I bought this mini conditioner for my trip to Germany in February and have continued to use it throughout March. I use it once a week to help restore the dryness of my hair and give it a much needed boost. It is incredibly good in making my hair feel soft and silky and has a lovely smell!

NEUTROGENA OIL-FREE MOISTURISER (BOOTS)
I never ever used to use moisturiser and then I bought this stuff. It was my first skin-care brand moisturiser so I don't have much to compare it to, but I would say that it is really good at hydrating my skin and refreshing my skin before applying makeup. Although one thing I have found is that you have to wait a long time for it to sink it before applying foundation.


 LUSH BUBBLEGUM LIP SCRUB (LUSH)
I got this from my grandparents for Christmas and oh my goodness, this stuff is heavenly. It does a miracle and buffing my lips and making them soft and ready for lipstick, but it also smells AMAZING! I can't stop eating this sugary treat!


There we have it, all of my favorite products from the last month. I will be hopefully doing an April Favorites this time next month! See you tomorrow for another post!
