April Beauty Favourites.

One: Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser
After years (I wish that was an exaggeration) of pondering, I finally decided to try Liz Earle's Hot Cloth Cleanser. I don't know what it is, but my skin does nasty things as soon as the weather cools off, so I'm very glad I reached that decision. It's so gentle that I can use it on and around my eyelids and sensitive areas, yet cleanses so deeply, removing the day from my skin. The formula works fabulously with my inconsistently dry/oily skin type and the muslin cloth does a wonderful job of finishing the job. It's all a little luxurious. I'm left with moisturised, soft and clean-feeling skin.

Two: LUSH Ro's Argan Body Conditioner
This was the main feature of a LUSH demonstration that I got suckered in to (as usual) the other day. I loved the results so much, I bought one tub for myself and one tub for mamma bear (proceeds go to a good cause, too *insert angelic emoji here*). This is quite literally the perfect product for lazy old me who rarely bothers to moisturise her body. At all. Ever. You just rub some of this heavenly rose smelling cream on to your body whilst in the shower, wash it off again (or, if you're patient, let it sit for a minute or so like you would a hair conditioner) and BAM! No need to moisturise 'cause guess what, son? You just did. MY LIFE IS COMPLETE! All those nourishing goodies inside ensure that I step out of the shower with ridiculously soft, nourished skin all over and am on my merry way. And the smell! The smell lasts all dang day.

Three: LUSH The Comforter Shower Cream
I purchased The Comforter bubble bar a while back and I fell head over heels in love with the smell. I have no words that I can use to properly describe the deliciously sweet smell! My Lord. So when I accidentally discovered that my beloved also came in the form of a shower cream (!!!! x1,000), I died a thousand deaths of happiness. It's pretty and pink, it lathers so luxuriously, it leave the skin lightly scented - I really don't know what more you could possibly want.

Four: Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette
Yup. I ended up purchasing this baby the day after I posted my wishlist; I simply couldn't handle not possessing it any longer. It's a lovely neutral-toned palette that still manages to be incredibly versatile in that you get a good balance of both matte and shimmer shades. It's very easy to get a full look using this one palette alone and I bet $100 it compliments just about any skin tone, eye colour, hair colour in the known universe. Every shade is so dang pigmented and easy to blend, with minimal fall-out and last all day. I think I'm the only one who doesn't like the "chocolate" smell, but that's just personal taste, It's still pretty neat.
As you can surely see by now (or if you follow my Instagram), I spent entirely too much money on high-end beauty last month. But it was worth it. So very worth it. This create a luminous base to begin with, yes, BUT adding foundation and powder and all that other crap over the top doesn't cover up the glow, unlike many luminous primers I have tried. Most importantly: it kept my make-up in place all day, while "blurring" and "filtering" my complexion. I tend to become somewhat oily when I use luminous or dewy products; this has been the first luminous formulation I have tried that doesn't cause that. I'm in love, guys.
