As April draws to an end I decided to show some of my favorite products
 I have been using a lot this month.
If you know me personally you know I don't really wear makeup every single day, 
nor do I get the chance to constantly test new products out. 
These have been a staple of mine for a while now
with a few exceptions here and there. 

Because this has been such a busy month and it was fairly hot in the starting,
I decided to keep my makeup super simple and focus a tad bit more on skincare.

THE BODY SHOP BRITISH ROSE PLUMPING MASK - 
I have been loving this mask lately! Especially since I have been working so hard this month with my new job as well as studying for exams. All those late nights and being out in the sun I have been feeling my skin has just been bleh so this mask has always come to my rescue.
I have done a review on 4/5 of The Body Shop masks, which I will link here if you want to check it out and multi mask away.


THE BODY SHOP SEAWEED INTENSE CLEANSER -
*Oh My Word* I love this cleanser! I have been on the look out for a good deep cleanser that wouldn't give my beauty/makeup budget a heart attack and this is totally worth it. I have been using it once a week usually the night I do a mask or wore makeup that day. The Body Shop has amazing skincare products, different ranges for different skin types which is perfect.
Little goes a long way and my skin felt so soft and clean after using it that I totally recommend it for your skincare routine. 


THE BODY SHOP BLUE CORN PURIFYING SCRUB MASK - 
I purchased this when I was in Saudi last year and even though I use this so often and sometimes my mum and sister uses it it still hasn't even hit pan yet which is amazing!
 I love using it as a scrub instead of a mask and it works great with electronic facial cleanser. It helps remove all the texture from the skin and smoothen your skin out. 


DIRTY WORKS 8 in 1 MIRACLE SERUM -
Actually this is a repurchase of mine. I didn't think it personally helped with a lot of marks but I love how it mattified my skin especially since I have been more on the oily side of my combination skin lately. It keeps me oil free all day but does not make my skin feel rough which I love.

- MAKEUP -

THE BALM COSMETICS HIGHLIGHT [Mary-Lou Manizer] -

My favourite highlighter by far! I love pairing it with the blush and cleaner below on most days this month when I just wanted a simple fresh looks.
Over bronzing or contouring I love to highlight I just love the glow, so I always turn to this bad boy to make me shine. 
If you're looking for a good highlighter that suits both everyday and occasions check this one out. 


THE BALM COSMETICS INSTAIN BLUSH - [Swiss Dot] -

Nothing beats that pop of colour on your cheeks that just instantly brightens up the book. I have been reaching for this so much and little goes a long way because it is so pigmented. I purchased this from Saudi last year and I love it as a summer and spring blush. The Balm Cosmetics always kill it with the amazing quality and packaging, plus it is cruelty free which is a bonus.


ESSENCE COSMETICS SHEER & SHINE LIPSTICKS [09 & 16]-

It is sheer but a couple of applications and even on the first application there is a lot of pigment. It doesn't exactly match the colour shown at the bottom of the package - obviously it is sheer - but it brings a lovely tint to my lips which is perfect for summer/spring. Working and just being so busy out and about I did not want to hassle with liquid lipsticks or very matte lipsticks because my lips get so dry and I just feel like I need to check it a lot. 

ESSENCE COSMETICS MAKE ME BROW GEL [02 Browny Brows] -

If you have been following my social media for a while now you know I do not do much with my brows. Since getting this lovely product I haven't filled it once and usually just set it soo it doesn't go exploring and sticking out all over the place. 
Because I have such thick dark brows I don't go in so heavy handed with this because it is the dark shade. It is best to always use a shade lighter than your natural brows so it comes across more natural rather than filled in with a marker. 


YARDLEY STAY FAST CONCEALER [00 Light]

I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS CONCEALER! I cannot tell you how many times I repurchased this it's so weird because no one ever talks about it but I still love it. 
A few years back and I'm talking 3 - 4 years back I was starting to try new makeup products so I wanted to try bringing concealer into my routine. I tested this cream concealer and a liquid concealer from Essence Cosmetics but I FELL IN LOVE with this cream concealer. The colour fit me perfectly, it has a yellow undertone, it glides on so smooth and softly and it does not crease. It's so affordable so if you're looking for a great concealer that photographs well and won't break the bank check this one out.

    1. Thank you so much! I really do love the cleanser because I feel it leaves my skin clean and hydrated but because I have oily skin it makes it matte as well. I know The Body Shop came out with a cleansing peal in the 'Drops of Youth' range and reviews look good, maybe after this finishes I will pick that up and give it a try.

    1. The Body Shop never lets me down when it comes to skincare, they have a range and product to suit every age, skin type, problem and preference which I love. Like I mentioned in a previous reply to a comment, I know The Body Shop came out with a cleansing peal in the 'Drops of Youth' range and reviews look good, maybe after this finishes I will pick that up and give it a try. So if you cannot find the seaweed range you could check this range out too.

  6. I used to use a lot of Bodyshop skin products, but seems like the eczema comes and goes for me. I loved the brand, because the products all smell oh so good! And I'm a sucker for that. Too bad, sensitive skin... So, I use them at minimal.

    1. Sensitive skin is always a problem, I do think The Body Shop needs to up it's 'sensitive skin' product range because I know a lot of people struggle to find good skincare products for their sensitive skin. But they have been stepping up their skincare range a lot of so I guess in due time. The scents are amazing and because its all natural and cruelty free I think the benefits are really good.

  7. I love Body Shop products too and am particularly interested in the Rose Mask! I love their Rose Line. I always also wanted to try the seeaweed cleanser but I ended up switching over to a more natural charcoal based facial cleanser that's great.

    1. It's so irritating getting a hold of The Body Shop products where I am from because the store is so far from where I stay that I just never go to that area. So when I do go or when I see the mini stall in the local drug store stocked a bit I try new products. I haven't seen the charcoal cleanser or range of yet, but maybe in future after this one finishes I will try another. I don't like to have so many products because it just does not end than lol... Thank you for telling me about this cleanser I will look it up :) The rose mask is amazing, it pairs amazingly with a DIY mask I posted this week so check it out if you do get this mask. The rose scent is perfect, not too overbearing.

  9. Products of body shop are my favorite as well!
    But I don't wear makeup even though I go to university everyday. I just apply eye liner & Mascara & some gloss(mostly baby lips) & I am ready to go to uni. Haha
    But I really like Dove's beauty cream that is just perfect for Summer season.

    1. Haha I'm like that nowadays, especially since it was summer so it was just too much to handle any more. I'm an liner, lipstick and mascara everyday kind of girl...sometimes you need to let your skin breathe!
