April Beauty Wishlist

Welcome to April! Hopefully now Spring will finally arrive? I'm so ready for Spring. As you can probably tell from the first glance of my April Wishlist, there's a lot of skincare on there. That's because Winter has absolutely ruined my skin! I definitely feel the need to rejuvenate my skin ready for the Spring/Summer months ahead!

First up on my Wishlist is from a brand that I absolutely adore, and is the Percy & Reed A Walk In The Rain Shine & Fragrance Mist. This product is a spray which not only adds fragrance to your hair, but also gives it shine too. Both of which are very important to me in a haircare product!

Next is the first of many skincare products within this post. It's the Rodial Vitamin C Brightening Pads. These pads can be used in the morning and evening, and the fruit acids contained within these exfoliate and renew the skin's surface. I've never tried any of Rodial's products before, but I have to say, I'm really impressed with what they have to offer.

I really got into wearing lipsticks last year, in particular, nude lipsticks. I just feel like it's such a versatile shade, and it can either be dressed up or dressed down. But it can also suit everyone, depending on what nude shade you pick. One that's recently caught my eye is the MAC Liptensity Lipstick in the shade Driftwood. I've never tried any of the Liptensity range, but I love the look of the formula of them, and the range of shades too.

While we're on the topic of nude shades, I also have a thing for nude nail shades too. For the same reason that I love nude lipsticks. Recently, I've really gotten into using my SensatioNail kit again after some time, and forgot how good the system is! I've put the SensatioNail Express Gel Polish in Taupe To Bottom onto my Wishlist. Mainly because I love the shade, but the Express Gel Polish has been designed so you don't have to use a base or top coat with the polish, making the process of doing your nails so much quicker!

Back to skincare, and I'm loving the look of the Rodial Dragon's Blood Eye Masks. I've never used an eye mask before, but I really want to start using them as they seem to give your under eye such a boost! I've also read some really good reviews on these particular eye masks too. 

My skin has been having such a hissy fit lately. I don't think all the months of freezing weather, snow, rain and central heating have helped to be honest. But I have been going through a faze of having such oily skin, and it feels horrible! I'm hoping that the NYX Professional Makeup Matte Blotting Paper will help me out! These papers will also come in handy in the warmer months too, when/if they arrive!

Speaking of oily skin, another product I have added to my list is the Benefit Porefessional Licence To Blot Mattifier. I love the original, and Pearl Porefessional primers, but this is a oil blotting stick which can be used over makeup, designed to target oily parts such as the side of your nose, forehead, and chin.

Not too long ago, I was introduced to Glam Glow face masks, and I fell in love! It worked a treat on my skin, and made it look so much more glowy and better than before. I want to try more of their masks, and saw the Glam Glow Multi-Masking Kit. The kit has a selection of their brilliant masks, and will give me an opportunity to try these all out!

Lastly, I will admit that I have actually never used an SPF before. I know that's really terrible, made even worse when I've ended up with sunburn on my face multiple times over the last two summers, so this year I want to change my ways and start wearing SPF! I've been reading lots of reviews of different SPF's, and I saw amazing reviews of the Clinique Super City Block SPF40.
