April Favourites 2017

April has come and gone (far too quickly for my liking), and this month I have been trying out and loving bunch of new products. I've never done a favourites before, but I love watching/reading them on youtube and blogs, so I decided to give it a go. Here is everything I have been loving throughout April:
I have been using the Too Faced Natural Matte Eyeshadow Palette pretty much non-stop this month. It is so easy to use, and because the shades are all matte they are very wearable on a day to day basis.
The Rimmel Brows This Way Eyebrow Gel has been my go to for school because I don't generally wear any foundation or bb cream to school, so I like a very natural brow. This gel is great because it tidies and defines my eyebrows without making them to bold or in your face. I use the blonde shade.
I am obsessed with this Rimmel Lipstick! This shade is 'Rock 'n' Roll Nude' from the Rimmel Kate Anniversary Collection. It is a gorgeous nude-pick, and I pretty much live in it.
April, being a month of sudden weather changes, has cause my skin to freak out a little and dry out a lot, particularly around my mouth and nose. I have been reaching for the Herb Farm Rose Face Cream at these times, and it has been a life saver! I generally only use the face cream at night however, if my skin is particularly dry I apply some after my moisturizer in the morning. It makes my skin feel so much smoother and softer, and I love that it is made in New Zealand.
Another NZ brand (New Zealand represent!) that I have been loving is Skinfood. I'm a weekly face mask kinda gal. I really enjoy taking one night out a week to have a bath, pop on a face mask and watch a chick flick. The Skinfood Mud Masque is super refreshing, and cleansing. Made with Rotorua mud, apricot oil, spirulina, aloe vera, and jojoba oil, the mask always help diminish the size of my pores and my skin feels SO soft after using it!
Anyone who knew me last year knows that I could not go a day without my trusty Body Shop vineyard peach body spray. I was obsessed! It was limited addition, however, and so when I ran out mid September I thought that would be the end. Luckily the brought the vineyard peach range back for a limited time this year and I managed to get my hands on not one, but two body mists! It is, unfortunately, no longer available in NZ anymore. Fingers crossed they bring it back next year!
Finally, and my personal favourite, The Escapist's Dot to Dot. I was given this book for my birthday this year. Whenever I'm stressed, bored, or being lazy I go into my room, light all my candles and do a page out of dot to dot book. It puts me in such a good mood! If you're anything like me, a.k.a. a highly stressful human being, I recommend purchasing something like this, whether a colouring book or dot to dot book, because it is so relaxing! I love this one because each page is a different famous landmark, and its so exciting finding out what is what.

That is everything I have been loving recently! Let me know if you have tried any of these products and what you think.
