March Beauty Favourites

It's that time again when we all talk about the products we've been loving over the past month. I'm going to start off with the Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Wash that I mentioned in my Boots 3 for 2 haul (see link here) and I've pretty much used it continuously since then. I absolutely love the scent of this stuff, I can see why it's not everyone's cup of tea but it works for me and I love that it smells like a margarita. Another reason I love this is because it contains lots of skin loving ingredients, which soften the skin whilst you shower cutting down on moisturising time! If you follow me on Twitter (@Gemmalondonlife) you'll have heard me raving about my love for the Blackberry & Bay scent from Jo Malone that I was given as a very lovely gift from my parents for my birthday. I love this as it's such a beautiful light and fresh scent but also has a little musk in their to give it depth.

Next is an Urban Decay lip gloss which I mentioned in my review of the Ultra Nourishing Lip Glosses (see link here) and I've been pretty much wearing the shade Lovechild* all month. It's the perfect neutral pink for my skin tone and has some slight shimmer running through it, so I find it's perfect for day and night.  

At the end of February I attended the press day for Collection 2000 and whilst we all love their long lasting concealer they're also bringing out some really great new Spring releases. My personal favourite and something I've used everyday since getting it is their Brow Trio Kit. It comes with 3 different shades that you can mix and match, a double ended applicator brush and a setting gel. What I love about this is you can achieve really natural looking brows without them looking too drawn on. Unfortunately this isn't available until next week but I just wanted to let you know how great it is!

I mentioned in my February favourites post (see link here) that I’d been loving the Nars Sheer Glow Foundation, which I still do, but I found that around my forehead it really wasn’t blending in as nicely as I would like due to dry skin. I wanted to try a lighter base and I’d heard so much about the Chanel Aqua Vitalumiere Foundation from bloggers and friends and it sounded like the exact foundation I was looking for, a light-ish with still pretty good coverage. I’ve been using this for about 2 weeks and love that you can apply to smallest amount for a really sheer finish or build it up for a fuller coverage look.  

Lastly, a product I've been really enjoying is the new Bobbi Brown CC Cream* in the shade Pale Nude. I've been applying this after moisturising and it creates a really lovely base for make-up as it minimises any red patches on the skin.
