Batiste  Dry Shampoo in Blush

This dry shampoo works just like the original Batiste, but with a much prettier scent.  I first picked this up years ago because the original was sold out.  I was scared that the scent would have an overwhelming rose scent, but it is more like understated soft floral.  Perfect for Spring.

Nivea Soft

This is my most recent discovery in terms of skin care and I am truly glad I found it.  Although I have mostly oily skin and this cream is a rich, thick moisturizer, it is literally the best I have ever used.  It keeps my cheeks moisturized and sinks in my t-zone quick without leaving my skin greasy.  It is also a great base for my makeup in the morning.  Another perk is that it has literally healed my eczema on my hands.  I have just been rubbing the remaining cream on my hands after moisturizing my face and my hands are now almost completely eczema free and soft!

Lavanila “The Healthy Deodorant” in Vanilla Lavender

If you are a natural deodorant user, you need to buy this deodorant.  It wears like a traditional deodorant, not a gel or liquid like most natural deodorants.  Lavanila also have a wide range of scents, as well as a more powerful version for active (or extra sweaty) ladies.  The only con is the price – this costs about $20 – but so worth it!

Garnier Micellar Water

I decided to test this micellar water out since it is much cheaper than the Bioderma micellar water, which I absolutely love.  The Garnier one is just as good, but only $8 to 10 dollars – I got mine on sale.  If you do need a good makeup remover, do give this one a try.  They do have a waterproof makeup version as well.

Marc Jacobs Honey

This perfume has returned for Spring.  It is my signature spring and summer scent.  It is a sweet/floral scent and is absolutely gorgeous.  If you are in the market for a new scent for spring and summer, I definitely recommend it.

Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer in Cocoa Radiant

I am not normally a Vaseline kind of girl, but this is the easiest moisturizer ever.  Spray and rub – put your clothes on, no greasiness at all.  If you are a lazy girl, or just hate having to wait ages to put your clothes on after moisturizing, pick this up.  It also comes in two other scents, but the cocoa radiant is definitely my favourite!

Hope you enjoy.  Did you have any favourite products for April?
