April + May Beauty Favourites

Thursday, May 23, 2019
I have been loving so many products recently, whether I was sent them for review or ones I purchased myself and in today's post I'm going to share some of my favourite beauty products from April and May. The weather in the UK has been so lovely over the past couple of months so I've been able to mostly change up my makeup and skincare for the warmer weather, including using more of my BB Creams.

*Bali Body BB Cream (£25.95) 
I use BB creams most of the time as I love the natural finish, hydrating properties and they're usually ideal for my dry and sensitive skin. One of my favourite BB creams recently is the Bali Body BB Cream which I was very kindly sent for review. I have the shade Fair but it comes in three other shades, thankfully with BB creams, the shade is a little flexible as the coverage is quite light but a larger shade range would be great.
The BB Cream contains SPF 15 which is great but it isn't as high as the SPF in my Korean BB creams that I love so much. It also contains hyaluronic acid, marine collagen (which is derived from seaweed so the BB cream is suitable for vegans!) and green tea extract. It claims to be light weight, hydrating and easy to apply, all of which I'd agree with.

I have been using it on and off for the few weeks now and I'm loving it, from the package and the shade match for my ghostly pale skin to the subtle, natural coverage and the hydrating properties. I have very dry skin, especially if I have an eczema flareup and thankfully the BB cream doesn't emphasis it which is why I tend to gravitate towards BB creams rather than foundation. If you're looking for a light, hydrating and no fuss BB cream then definitely check out the Bali Body BB Cream.
*Hempz Original Shampoo 
Hempz is a brand I've tried a few times previously as I was sent some of their products and I have liked everything I've tried so far, including their original shampoo and conditioner duo which contains hemp seed oil, shea butter and lemon peel, among other natural ingredients. As with the previous product, it is 100% vegan and cruelty free which is fantastic!

I'm not a fan of the packaging or of the scent if I'm honest but I do love the product for my dry and colour treated hair. It's such a nourishing shampoo, which is perfect for my hair as it can feel very dry at times, particularly as I use more heat on it now than I have done over the past few years. If you have very dry hair then I think this shampoo would be great, especially when combined with the conditioner.

*Hempz Original Conditioner 
Out of the two products, I think the shampoo is my favourite, although I still like using the conditioner but it can be a little heavy and needs thoroughly washing out. It does leave my hair very moisturised, smooth and tangle free which is what I want. I've been very happy with all of the products from Hempz that I've tried and I'd love to continue to try their products in the future.
*LookFantastic x Omorovicza Box (£95)
If you follow my subscription box reviews on the All Subscription Boxes website then you will have already seen my review of the amazing new and limited edition box with Omorovicza. I LOVE receiving the LookFantastic boxes, especially their limited edition ones so I was extremely excited when this box arrived. I've tried a couple of products from Omorovicza so I knew I liked their skincare but after using all of the items in this box for the past few weeks, I'm head over heels with the brand.

My favourite products from the box have to include the thermal cleansing balm (which is so lovely and doesn't irritate my skin as some cleansers can), the eye serum and the heavenly night cream which is the skincare equivalent of a warm, cosy and comforting blanket. Their skincare is pricey so this box is a great way to try their products for a fraction of the cost. It is still currently available and if you subscribe to their monthly box, you can get £20 off the Omorovicza box!
*Freshly Cosmetics Body Flame Firming Cream (£17.25 - SALE)
My final main favourite of the month is another product from Freshly Cosmetics which is a Spanish company who produce gorgeous, natural and vegan friendly products that work so well and the firming cream is no exception. Firstly, I love the packaging as I do with all Freshly products and I love the scent which smells so fresh and summery. I love the texture and how quickly it absorbs, while leaving my skin smooth and moisturised. I have notice a little firming effect but I haven't been using the product consistently enough to get the most out of it so far. However, if you're looking for a gorgeous body cream for the summer with firming properties then check out Freshly Cosmetics. They have such a fantastic range of skincare too, I'm currently trying their new Red Velvet Oil Serum which I'm also loving!

Have you tried any of these products?
