April Favourites

Here are all the products I have been loving this month!

Models Own 'Pukka Purple' nail polish
The Boots '3 for 2, mix & match' promotion got me again! This time I purchased 3 nail polishes for the price of 2 - and this one was my favourite. It is a a very daring, bright neon purple shade. I just instantly fell in love with the vibrant colour and I received lots of compliments too. Not only was the colour very pretty but the nail polish itself was really good quality and lasted a good few days without chipping as well as only requiring two coats.
Original Source Lemon & Tea Tree Shower Gel
I posted about this product in my 'What have I been buying?' post a few weeks ago and it's made it into my April favourites - possibly even all time favourites. I love fruity scents, particularly lemon - the smell, the taste - anything lemon, I love. I've read posts by other bloggers raving about Original Source shower gels so when I saw it, I just had to buy it. Nothing wakes you up like this zesty scent! It reminds me of lemon curd and can be purchased from most supermarkets and is an absolute bargain, usually retailing at just over £1! I refuse to shower without this now.
Rituals Magic Touch Cherry Blossom & Rice Milk Body Cream
I'm really bad at using body creams or body butters - I just don't use them enough because I don't like how most of them leave your skin feeling sticky and weird all day. In fact, the Rituals Body Cream is the only one I genuinely enjoy using. The consistency is thin and whipped rather than thick and bulky, so melts into your skin rather than sitting on top - (perfect!) The cherry blossom scent is incredible too; it's perfect for Spring and smells fresh and floral. Skin feels moisturised and smells amazing all day.
Glossybox Blusher
I received this blusher in the December Glossybox as a sixth item but have only just started to use it. I used to be shy of blushers but now I won't leave the house without wearing it. I love the shade and believe that it would probably look great on most skin tones. The product itself is long lasting and blends incredibly well - just what Id expect from Glossybox. They should make their own make-up range!
Yves Rocher Vegetal 24h Comfort Nourishing Cream
My favourite product from this months Glossybox is the Yves Rocher Nourishing Cream. Im using it as a face cream every morning after cleansing. Skin feels super soft after using and remains this way yes - for 24 hours (as promised). Yves Rocher is such a popular, well-renowned brand so I definitely had high hopes. It gives my face a warm glow and is the best moisturiser I've ever used. I will be buying the full-sized product for sure.
