March beauty favourites
March favourites - Twining fruit teas
In a bid to keep my hands soft and moisturised I've discovered 2 new favourites - Noble Isle rhubarb rhubarb hand wash and Balance me rose otto hand cream. Inspired by the Yorkshire triangle and with notes of rhubarb, juniper berries and rosemary the handwash is subtly sweet, but at the same time herbal and green. A posh grown up scent which adds a touch of luxury to an otherwise everyday routine. The hand cream on the other hand is quick absorbing and non greasy but still contains almond oil, shea butter, beeswax and lanolin to keep my hands soft and nourished.
Make up wise I'm still loving everything in my Spring edit, but a new product is the Real techniques retractable kabuki brush. The brush is densely packed and super soft with a smart design which means the bristles are always protected when you put the lid on. My only criticism is that the lid doesn't click into place and it would come off quite easily should I just throw it into my handbag. Instead I've been keeping mine in my make up bag where it's come in really useful for liquid foundations and powders.
In addition to my Spring edit, for the lips I've also been loving Benefit benetint (mine's a little Glamour sample). It's a gorgeous cherry red shade (swatch here), which layers up beautifully and leaves behind a long lasting stain. Because it's such a light liquid it's not drying at all and only needs a slick of lip balm every few hours or so to revive and add some gloss.
Haircare wise I've been loving L'oreal extraordinary oil and Pantene aqua light nouishing mist. Because the ends of my hair are dry and damaged I've been using the oil to nourish and add shine and the mist to lightly condition and detangle in between washes.
Finally I've been obsessed with Twinnings fruit teas this month. There's just something so comforting about sitting down with a hot drink and my 2 favourite flavours are Cranberry & blood orange and Strawberry & raspberry. It's a nice change from the traditional breakfast teas and because they're caffeine free it can be enjoyed any time of day. The blood orange one in particular is really refreshing and coming into the summer months it'll make a lovely iced tea too.
