It’s that time again! April has given me so many things I’ve loved it’s been hard to pick my favourites! Can we first just take a second to talk about how sunny this month has been! On the whole its been really good weather and you can definitely feel it getting warmer too, not to mention the nights getting lighter! I get so excited about the warmer weather and longer days! Summer is just around the corner! I can’t wait! Cute dresses, summery sandals, burning coconut candles constantly! Coconut is my favourite scent for the Spring and Summer. I can’t get enough of it! I’m totally obsessed with Costa’s Tropical ice cooler drink too! Ok, so now I’m totally digressing, let me move on to my April loves and talk about this months stand out things for me.
Yu Ling Jade Face Roller
I’ve had this on my wishlist for sometime and I finally took the plunge and got one. I only wish I’d gotten one sooner! I absolutely love this! I use it on freshly cleansed skin before I use any products, I use the small roller for under my eyes, and the bigger roller for the rest of my face, I work from the middle out only rolling in one direction. Jade is renowned for its healing properties and is very popular in Chinese medicine and skincare to aid with the body’s filtration organs and lymph system to expel toxins, the deep massaging action encourages lymph drainage and blood flow, eliminating puffiness, toning facial muscles and plumping out wrinkles. Since using it my face looks fresh, brighter and definitely more plumped, I actually can’t believe the difference from using this. I’ve seen such a huge change in my skin.
Superdrug Naturally Radiant Glycolic Peel Pads
I am obsessed with these pads! I love them, they are gentle on the skin but they really give my skin a deep clean after each use, my skin looks brighter and smoother since adding these into my routine. You get a tub of 60 pads for £5.99 which I think is amazing value for money! This is the first skincare product I have tried from my recent Superdrug haul and I am dying to try more now. If you use peel pads and haven’t tried the Superdrug Naturally Radiant pads I cannot recommend them enough. I love them. Absolute bargain too!
Skin Chemists Advanced Pro-5 Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream *
Skin Chemists reached out to me and asked if I would like to try out this night cream and give my feedback on it, and after reading up on the product and the company, combined with my love of skincare I was happy to try it out. I have been enjoying it and I do feel like my skin is looking brighter and more plumped from it. My fine lines appear reduced. Personally I’m not over keen on the scent, and it has almost like a shimmer in the cream which I don’t understand being a night cream, but otherwise I liked it. Skin Chemists have gave me a code for my readers to get a substantial discount for a limited time, the code is valid until the 7th of May, use MELBLOG when checking out and get the cream for £19.99.
L’Oreal Color Riche Oil Nail Polish – 220 Diamache Apres-Midi
Firstly can we just take a second to talk about the packaging! I love the pattern in the glass bottle and the gold lid is so pretty! I’m really loving pastel shades at the moment so this beautiful baby pink seemed like the obvious choice while browsing the L’Oreal stand. I love that it has a larger flat brush making the application so effortless and you get a good product distribution too. Bonus because let’s be real, nobody like streaky nails!
Victoria’s Secret Pink Body Mist – Sun Kissed
I’m already a fan of the body mists from the Pink range and this one is perfect for summer with the right mix of tropical coconut and sweet vanilla. It smells so unreal I can’t even tell you. I’ll be reaching for this all Summer long!!
Adidas Rose Gold Allstar Trainers
I cannot tell you how much I love these trainers!! I’m totally obsessed with them and in rose gold too!! I actually thought about ordering a second pair for when the first are all worn out just so I had a back up…. I wouldn’t actually do it but I’m not going to lie, the thought did enter my head and I did really think about it!! Not sure why but this specific style of trainer really makes me feet look tiny! I’ve not owned a pair of Superstars since I was about 12!! I’m so excited about them!
Primark – Oversized Pink Shirt
In keeping with the seemingly pinked theme that is my April favourites, I give you one pink oversized shirt. I pretty much loved this the second I saw it, it’s so perfect for Spring and Summer and can be worn a few ways to mix things up a little. I really liked the dark tortashell buttons on it too. Can’t wait to wear it!
Primark Pink Suede Slip On Heels
Channelling some serious 90s vibes in these baby’s! I fell in love as soon as I laid eyes on them! So cute and retro! They have other great colours but I’m a pink gal so that’s why I grabbed those ones. I only wish the weather would get a grip so I can actually wear them!!
Harry Potter Socks
I literally can’t pass anything Harry Potter related in a shop and not get it. Obsessed much! I think so. Now I have cute socks for every Hogwarts house.
River Island Backpack
I have been so obsessed with this backpack that I’ve never stopped using it since I got it. So cute! Love the colour, the quilted design and the rose gold detailing! I feel like Dora The Explora with my little backpack! Definitely a firm favourite from this month. It’s literally never off my back.
