Current Favourites - April 2018

I love burning a beautifully scented candle, especially at night so I was very excited to be gifted a candle in a scent of my choice to test out. Inara Candles are based in Glasgow and create luxury natural soy, hand poured candles. I chose the scent White Petals and Bergamot which arrived quickly and was well packaged, I'm not the best at describing scents (I apologise) but obviously this is quite floral and it's definitely a strong scent I was initially worried that it might be too overpowering but once it's lit I actually think the scent is even nicer, it's a lovely sophisticated floral scent. This is definitely a new favourite and I will be continuing to burn this throughout April.

The Marriage Pact by Michelle Richmond
My favourite kind of books are always psychological thrillers, it's pretty much all I read and most recently I've picked up The Marriage Pact. I'm probably only about halfway through this book but so far I'm enjoying it, I won't talk too much about what happens but it's about a newlywed couple who join a club for married couples that guarantees you will never get divorced and as always with these kinds of books things take a sinister turn. The couple have to adhere to a strict set of rules that are put in place to give you the perfect marriage if rules are broken there are consequences and nobody is allowed to leave. I'm excited to see what other twists and turns will be put into this book and hopefully, it will have a good ending (nothing spoils a book more than an ending that's a total letdown). I will hopefully finish this book later this month and I'll be sure to give an update!

L'Oreal Infallible Shaping Stick Foundation
I picked up this foundation a month or so ago when it was first released and I've been using it so often that it's almost empty. This is a really lovely creamy stick foundation that gives medium coverage and wears really nicely throughout the day. One of my favourite things about this foundation is how quick and easy it is to apply, I just apply it to my skin in stripes and blend out with a brush building the coverage wherever I need it. The foundation claims to be matte but it's not true this has a natural finish and can get quite dewy throughout the day which I love for spring. I have a full review of this product which I will link here.

Epaderm Cream
This isn't a very glamorous beauty product but it is saving my skin at the moment, it's a moisturiser aimed at anyone with dry skin, eczema or psoriasis and it doesn't contain any fragrance or colouring. My skin has been very dry recently and this cream is really helping, it doesn't smell amazing, it's very much like a medicated cream. It can be used on babies skin so it's a great product for families to have, I won't use it consistently but it's great to have hiding in a drawer for any time your skin gets especially dry (which mines definitely is right now).

Estee Lauder Double Wear
I've spoken about this foundation before and I absolutely love it, it's my holy grail foundation! I ran out of it a while back and I've only just recently repurchased it so it had to go in my favourites post, it's full coverage and wears longer than any other foundation I've ever used. My skin hasn't been it's best recently and I've been having quite a few breakouts but this foundation does an amazing job at covering everything up. I'll link my full review here, it is a fairly expensive product but it's definitely worth the money.
