Hi all, I'm am sorry I haven't been posting very often now I have been busy with my Gran's funeral, going on holiday, starting my new part time job and a mountain of college work! 

I plan to get back on track and start posting more often again! I have reached over 10 followers now which I know isn't much compared to other people's but, I am really grateful to those people its nice to know that some people are actually interested in what I write.

So I have a few posts planned which be published throughout the next few weeks so hopefully that gives you something to look forward to!

Thanks for reading :)

March Favourites

Well this is my first ever monthly favourites post! This is something which I have been very excited to write and publish! I know it is a little late as we are already a few days into April but sadly my Grandma has recently died so I have been a bit preoccupied! :(

I have thought long and hard about what products to include in my March favourites and I have finally decided on these 3 items;

Collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer - I got this at the beginning of the month and I am already in love with this product so much that I have purchased a back up ready for when I run out. The only problem I've had with it is the print rubs off the packaging but that's nothing major its an amazing product either way.

Bourjois Flower Perfection Foundation - I normally use the Healthy Mix foundation but I decided to give this one a test out. It is a lot more full coverage than the Healthy Mix formula and it also has a matt finish. I love both products equally and can't decided which one I prefer. I use the flower perfection on days when I'm going to be out and about and the Healthy Mix when I'm just have a lazy day, I have tried mixing both products together also gives a lovely coverage and finish. I wouldn't recommend the flower perfection to any one who has dry skin as it can cling to the dry patch and make it look flaky also it isn't very moisturising while it is on the skin.  

Soap and Glory Hand Food - My hands have been feeling a little dry lately as I haven't been using moisturiser as much as I used to but in my house we have the hand wash and hand food duo next to our sink in the bathroom so I have been using it more often and my hands were back to feeling silky soft in no time!

No7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Lotion

As you may have seen from my previous post "March Wishlist" I was wanting to purchase the No7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Water using my £5 off voucher, but when I went into my local boots store I was told that it had been took off sale as there was a fault with it and it would be back as soon as the problem was sorted. The lady on the counter recommended for me to get the cleansing lotion instead, she said it did the same job but it was for normal/dry skin which didn't bother me as I often suffer from dry skin from time to time. 

Although I have only been using this product for a few weeks I love it. It does exactly what I want it to do. It removes any make up which may be left on my skin and leaves my skin feeling soft and refreshed.

It had a creamy consistency and it glides over my face effortlessly using a cotton pad. It does not sting my eyes or cause any irritation to my skin which I sometimes have a problem with when using cleansers which feel to harsh for my skin but this one is perfect.

I would defiantly repurchase this product again although I am still interested in trying out the cleansing water when it comes back onto the shelves.

Thank you for reading I hope you found this post helpful.
