April Loves

Here we are its that time again, April for me has flown by.  I cannot believe we are nearly entering the months. I cannot wait for some sunshine.

Elie Saab 50ml £56.00
This is my go to perfume at the moment, I also own the purse size. Now how do I describe how amazing this smells??? Its musky, sensual and feminine if that makes sense? I really like this, I am so glad a brought this. It was not a planned purchase but more of a grab and buy. I did not even smell it in the shop. It was a pleasant surprise when I got home.

Orgins Clean Energy Cleansing Oil 200ml £19.00 (Pump £1.00)
This is a recent purchase, my Orgins consultant introduced me to this product, along with plenty of others! At my recent facial appointment. I was cleansing with my Emma Hardy in the bath each morning but in the evening I was only using my Taag micellaire water. I was advised to up my cleanse and in turn this would remove all traces of make up, even the deep layers. I absolutely love using this product, I also advise you to buy the pump. You do not waste the oil that way, I use 2 pumps and rub into my skin, this smells of lavender (one of my favourites) I have been using this for over a month now and you can see how little has gone. I brilliant product you must try.

Weleda Skin Food 75ml £8.95
One whisper that Victoria Beckham uses this beauty and all the women in the world fly into a frenzy. Me included!! I few clicks later and it was mine, I was on the look out for a nice hand cream and this fits the bill nicely. I have also tried this on my sons dry patches and it soothes him in seconds. This is a thick cream and takes some rubbing in but I like that.


By Terry Hyaluronic Powder 10gm £41.00
I have reached for this every morning without fail in the month of April, it gives my skin that extra something. I have horrendous skin at the moment, I keep harping on about. I tend to use my Double Wear or Creme Silk foundations both of which are full coverage and longer wearing. Just a Little dusting of this over the top makes all the difference. It provides a blurring effect and takes away the shine.

Caudalie Divine Oil* 100ml £25.00 (travel sized shown)
Out of all my oils I would say this is the thickest in texture and most nourishing. I use this on my hair, usually at night time. It smells lovely, nothing like their elixir! I like to slather this onto my hair, I then twist it up and put into a top knot when no one is looking!

Mac Patissarie 4gm £14.00
My all time favourite Mac lipstick. I became aware of this colour whilst watching a you tube video by the lovely Tanya Burr. I had already fallen for the usual blogger holy grails colours and been disappointed. So when I noticed Tanya using this colour I had to investigate more. The colour Jen (me) always goes for!!!

Isn't it the perfect colour, a your lips but better, I work this most days for work. Its not too much but enough to add a little shine to my lips. I am not keen of the toffee smell Mac put into their lipsticks.

Clinique All About Eyes Serum 15ml £21.00
Another find from watching a you tube video, oh my can you see a pattern occurring here!! This time it was the lovely LisalisaD1. I really liked the idea of running a cold, metal ball around my eyes in the morning to wake me up! Every little helps, well it does me anyway. I brought this when Debenhams had their 10% off recently. I did intend to only use this in the mornings, but I have been using this at night as well so I have used quite a bit already. Its a refreshing product which dries pretty quickly.

Nars Mykonos £18.00
An absolute beauty, my first Nars cream eyeshadow and I am totally impressed. It is a long wearing eyeshadow with a luxury formula, and I mean it lasts all day. It does not crease on me and looks the same when I arrive home as it did when I applied in the morning time.

I can achieve 2 looks with this 1 eyeshadow it can layed  up for a dark look or blended  out like I have in the picture to get a natural covering. Isn't it sooo pretty, I have nothing like it in my collection.

Bloom Remedies Orange, Cardamom and Geranium Body Butter* 50ml £7.99
I literally can not put this down, I am stocking up as we speak. I enjoy nothing more than rubbing a swoop of this into my cuticles. As soon as I put this product into my hands it melts and smells so nice. I keep sniffing my fingers after use! I get funny looks from my husband! I also love the packaging, it is in a metal tin with a screw on lid. So no worries for this to dry out. I will also up cycle this pot.

Lulu & Boo Hair Mask 30ml £12.95
I reviewed this product a few days ago. I have no idea how to link that post to this one!!! Please help?? Anyway what a fabulous mask, my hair loves this, I have used this several times over the month. As I sit Here  now its in my hair! I will leave it on until I wash my hair tomorrow morning. I have twisted my hair up in a top knot.

  3. Hey - I don't know if anyone has already told you - but if you mean you want people to be able to click on for example "Lulu Boo" in this post and have it lead to your review, then all you need to do is:

    1. In Edit blog post, highlight the word(s) you want to be clickable.

    2. Next to the button you click to add images, is a button that says "Link". Click it.

    3. Where it says "Which URL should this link go to?", type in, or paste the link you want. ie. (If you're not sure whether it's right then choose the Test Link line and it will try out the URL.)

    4. Click okay. Your link should now work!

    Hope this helps x
