April Favourites!

I can't believe it's already May! Where has this year gone? The weather here in Ottawa is beautiful, and I was actually able to break out the shorts and flip flops for the first time today! I always find that so exciting :) I've been loving a ton of products this month, so let's get started...

Stila Convertible Color in Sweet Pea (reviewed here) - I bought this cream blush during Sephora's Chic Week Sale, and I've fallen in love. The formula is incredible, and this shade is absolutely perfect for Spring.


Dior 5-Colour Eye Shadow in 809 Petal Shine - This was another Sephora Chic Week purchase that I've been loving. This is the first time I've tried any eye shadows from Dior, and now I'm hooked. I really like using Maybelline's Color Tattoo in Inked in Pink underneath these Dior shadows, the combination is gorgeous.


Benefit's Ring My Bella Perfume* (reviewed here) - This has been my go-to perfume for the month of April. This scent is sweet but floral, and perfect for Spring. Plus, the bottle is super cute too!


Vichy Eau Thermale Spa Water* (reviewed here) - I've been loving just spritzing on this spa water throughout the day. I find it very relaxing, hydrating, and refreshing. This bottle produces a very find mist, so the water sinks into you skin quickly. 


Bath & Body Works Fresh Picked Apples Body Wash* (reviewed here) - Oh my gosh, this scent is incredible! This shower gel is so thick, and the scent fills up my entire shower. The Fresh Picked Apples scent is perfect for Spring, and it's very refreshing after a long day. 


St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse* - Warmer weather always means the start of self-tanning, and this year I started using St. Tropez for the first time. I found that this bronzing mousse left my skin with a nice hint of colour after the first application, and I didn't have any streaks! I also could barely smell anything from this self-tanner, which is one of the best features of this product!


Soap & Glory Hand Food (Reviewed here) - This is another cult favourite, and I have officially joined the cult following! This hand food not only smells delicious, but it's moisturizing and sinks in quickly. I've been keeping this tube in my purse, and reaching for it throughout the day, as I need it. 


Bourjois So Lacque Glossy 06 Adora-Bleu* (reviewed here) - This pale blue periwinkle shade is perfect for Spring, and I received so many compliments on this polish while I was wearing it! The formula was really creamy and easy to apply, and this polish dried to a glossy finish without a top coat. 


Lush Ice Blue Shampoo* (reviewed here) - This shampoo is very invigorating, and has a great minty scent. This Retro Lush product does a great job at cleansing my hair, leaving it shiny, soft, and manageable. The formula helps to reduce frizz, which is always a bonus in my books!


So those are all of the products that I've been loving this past month! Please feel free to leave me a comment below letting me know what products you've been loving :) I always appreciate the product recommendations!
