April Favourites

How is it the end of April already? I feel like Christmas wasn’t that many days ago. Tomorrow we welcome May, which for me starts off a marathon of family birthdays — starting with my niece’s on 11th! I can’t believe she’ll be one! Before I get sappy and sentimental, let’s get to the beauty (and one non-beauty) products that I’ve been loving all month.FullSizeRender (8)

Bumble and bumble, Thickening Dryspun Finish. I am slowly getting through all of Bumble’s amazing product line (reviews here, here, here and here), with my newest being this texturizing spray. This has been amazing on days when my hair is feeling too flat, or I need some grip to my hair for an updo.

Clarins, Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster. I reviewed this earlier this month, and I am still loving it! I’m still figuring it out a bit, but I’m loving the subtle to not-so-subtle glow that I’ve been able to get with this. I’ve had a lot of people comment on the fact that I look tanned, and those that didn’t know that I was using this product assumed it was a real tan — which means that this stuff definitely works.

Voluspa Glass Jar Candle, Santiago Huckleberry. I love Voluspa candles because they smell amazing, and they last such a long time. I actually bought this two or three years ago when I was working at Chapters. In the past I would only use it occasionally, but since I’ve finished off all my other candles, I’ve been burning it almost every day for the past few weeks and have fallen back in love. These candles are coconut based wax, so they burn really clean and last really long (they are supposed to last for 100 years). Also, the jar is so beautiful! I will definitely be keeping it and repurposing it when it is finished.

Essie, Peach Daiquiri. Spring to me is all about using bright colours along with my normal neutrals (I basically wear grey, navy and white or black all the time) and this peachy-corally-pink is the best.

Revlon, Colorstay Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat. For the past few months I have been using Formula X SHINE Top Coat (which is really good), but decided to start using this one again. It is amazing! Not only does it give my nails that glossy finish that I love, it seriously makes them last so much longer. I love it when a drugstore product is better than a more expansive one! Hurray for saving money!
