Its mid-April already, and spring FINALLY seems to be making an appearance – I’ve definitely enjoyed some sunshine this week!
Here’s my first ever favourites post, sharing some of the products I’ve been enjoying the most this year so far. In the past I’ve always been one to stick with the same products, but this year I’ve tried to use different products to find what is best for my skin.
1. Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream
So I’ll admit, I’ve never tried this before. But seeing so many people use this product, I thought I’d get myself a little tube to try, and I will definitely be going back to get the regular sized tube!! This cream is AMAZING. I’ve found that it is brilliant on my lips, and on any blemishes on my skin that aren’t clearing up. This cream is worth every penny!
2. Sephora Lotus Face Mask
I’m a sucker for a face mask. After a stressful day at work or studying, I find nothing more relaxing than putting on a face mask to feel refreshed and revived. On a recent trip to Venice I went into Sephora and found some sheet masks I thought I’d try, and they are AWESOME. I leave them on for about half an hour, and they leave my skin feeling hydrated, moisturised and refreshed. The scent is beautiful, and as well as the ‘Lotus’ scent, I also tried an algae and a pomegranate scent, and all were brilliant for my skin. I will definitely be purchasing more!
3. Avon Anew Clean 3-in-1 Cleansing Water
I have started to use this products as a cleanser after I have removed my make-up, and I love it. It leaves my skin feeling clean and hydrated, and removes any excess product left on my face. It is incredibly affordable, and a great alternative to other cleansing waters on the market.
4. Lush Grease Lightening Spot Treatment
This month, my skin as suffered with lots of spots! I’m not sure if they are stress related, or just a result of the changing weather (or the easter chocolate – guilty!!), but this lush product has been my saviour. This small pot lasts as only a small amount of product is needed at any time, and I’ve found that by the following morning my spot has halved in size and clears up incredibly quickly – I couldn’t recommend this enough!
5. Bath & Body Works Super Smooth Body Lotion 24hr Moisture in ‘Beautiful Day’
Having recently visited America I was lucky enough to be able to treat myself to a few products from Bath & Body Works and I am already regretting not buying more! This moisturiser smells DREAMY! It leaves my skin leaving smooth and silky, as well as smelling divine, and is my new favourite post-shower product. I use this EVERY DAY without fail, and can’t wait to try other scents of this product in the future.
So there we have it, my skin care favourites in 2018 so far.
I hope you enjoyed this post, and please feel free to comment with any feedback!
