Most Reached For // April

It's May! 

I can't believe that's another month swept by quickly. I wanted to post my most reached for products as I always post my empties and I know you maybe getting bored of seeing just empties. April seemed to be the month of natural looks and trying to get my skin back to a somewhat healthy appearance after my hormones went cray-zee. 

I can happily say that it's back to normal, well even better to some degree due to the Etat Pur. I really need to get my finger out and publish that post don't I. So here's what I reached for last month. 

Vaseline Rosy Lips Balm - This really needs no introduction does it? 

Clean & Clear Deep Cleansing Toner - This is the equivalent of me pulling out the big guns. This is strong but does the trick mopping up the excess oil. I do need to moisturise after using this though or face the tight skin look. 

Taylor Swift's Wonderstruck Perfume - This is one I received in a Christmas gift set, the normal bottles are so much fancier and cost around £20 for 30 mls. I'm not a huge fan of Taylor Swift. There's no real reason for it and it wasn't because of her that I purchased this fragrance. The perfume's note will explain why I reach for it as it contains the perfect perfume notes, maybe ever. 

Top notes: Apple, Raspberry & Freesia Middle notes: Vanilla, Honeysuckle & Hibiscus Bottom notes: [yummy] Amber, Peach & Sandalwood.

Etat Pur Citric Acid AHA - This product is for dull complexions and loss of radiance, it exfoliates, cleanse and regenerates healthy skin. Think of this as an at home (non painful) skin peel. It costs £11.60 and has been money well spent. I will be buying this for sure. 

Sally Hansen Age Correct Growth Treatment   - This goes on like a nude polish and cost only a couple of pounds from my local B&M's. Although I seemed to have corrected my skincare issues, my nails on the other hand are in terrible condition. So far this seems to be stopping them flaking and breaking so I will keep you posted. 

Aveda Smoothing Fluid - This is a sample size that has been sitting going unused for a while. With this rain-sun-rain weather my hair doesn't know if it's coming or going. This is a great smelling fluid that I use to smooth down those fly-aways. This costs £21.50 for 100 mls and will be on my to buy list as soon as it's finished. 

Senna Stardust Powder - This is the highlighting powder duo from the Stardust set and although it's not specifically an eyeshadow, that is what I've been using it as. It leaves a gorgeous nude shimmer and can be used on the eye's brow bone and even the apples of my cheeks. I love it. 

FCUK Polished Bodyspray - Again this was another gift set product that was sitting gathering dust. I adore the scent of this and this lasts longer than most perfumes believe it or not. 

Along Came Betty Butterly Devine Butter - This is so much better than Soap & Glory I swear. This smells like a tropical paradise and it leaves my skin feeling silky and soft rather than greasy. I doubt I could live without this product. It's available at Tesco's for around £5 for a large tub. 

So what did you guys reach for?

  1. It's always nice to see products you like. My skin went hormonally crazy too! It's toned down now, but flares up once a month.. bleh haha.

    1. I'd definitely recommend the Etat Pur Citric Acid Aislinn, I actually went out bare skinned today and felt amazing. I'll be sure to do these posts every month :)
