Hey Friends, how are you all doing? Firstly I wanted to thank you for checking out my website. I hope you enjoy my weekly blogs / upcoming videos!
I wanted to share some of my favourite products for April :-)
1. Lily Lolo mineral foundation
This foundation was recommended to me by a friend, she has flawless skin so I thought I'd try it out. I have been using the Lily Lolo mineral foundation for a couple of months now.. it is AMAZING and works so well on my skin. I have blemish prone combination skin, with dry areas on my cheeks and a oily T zone. I found this foundation works so well to hide any blemishes and even out my skin tone. It also does not give me breakouts which is a huge bonus. It lasts really well on my skin all day, and does not need to be topped up or set with a powder. As a working lady I do not have much time in the morning to spend on my make-up, I love how quick and easy this foundation is to apply. I tap out a small amount of product into the lid, and apply with a kabuki brush (the colour I use is - Cookie).
I was sceptical about using a mineral powder foundation as I'd mainly researched bare minerals and heard very mixed reviews. However I cannot fault the Lily Lolo powder. It is definitely my favourite foundation/powder I have ever tried.
Before applying the mineral foundation I cleanse/moisturise my face and use my Smashbox photo finish primer.
I feel like if you have very dry skin this may not work as well for you. However if you are looking for a foundation which is easy to apply, includes SPF, and leaves you with flawless looking skin, i'd definitely recommend Lily Lolo!

You can also purchase Lily Lolo from Amazon which is where I got mine from :-) they ship worldwide.
2. AHA/BHA Exfoliant Cleanser
I cannot say enough good things about this product!
Firstly it contains Glycolic and Salicylic acids along with micro beads which clean out the skin so well. Over time this has eliminated any blackheads and cleared out my blocked pores. The overall condition of my skin has vastly improved since using this product!
I have tried a few other similar products but have not found one which works as well as this. I was advised by the spa I brought this from that it can be used morning and night. The micro beads are small and not too harsh which is perfect for every day use, without causing irritation to the skin. I like to massage this product into my face then leave for a few minutes to let the acids do their magic.
I am really so pleased I came across this product it has done wonders for my skin!
Where to buy:
Best Face & Body day Spa - Woodland Hills CA.
You can order online at -
The only downfall about this is the spa currently only ships within the US.
3. Blush Palette
Really liking this blush palette this month :-) it has a variety of shades including matt or shimmery options. My favourites are the pinks, a little goes a long way with these which is great. I picked this up from eBay for just 5.99, such a bargain!!
4. NARS contour stick
I had been looking for a contour stick for quite a while and finally came across this one from NARS which i'm loving! I decided to go for the darkest shade 'Vientiane' so I could use it all year round even when I have a tan in the summer. It can be blended out really easily to get the shade you want. I use this on my cheeks, forehead and on the sides of my nose. It is a slightly pricey but I feel it's definitely worth it :-) I also think this will last a very long time so it is a worthwhile addition to my make-up collection. If you are looking for a great product to contour with which is an alternative to powder i'd definitely recommend this!
Where to buy:
