April Favourites

Eve Lom Hand Cream
$48 AUD at Mecca Cosmetica

- Attractive, clean, and simple packaging.
- Contains natural exfoliators (salicylic acid and kokum butter) smooth and brighten skin and Jojoba oil and beeswax seal in moisture.
- Rich in antioxidants, edelweiss extract, shea butter, and has SPF 10 which all guard against environmental damages and premature ageing. (You know what they say about aging - your hands give away your age). 
- Consistency is not too rich or too watery - it's just perfect.
- Soaks into the skin well.
- Non-greasy and doesn't leave a sticky residue.
- Hands feel velvety smooth and soft after applying.
- Appealing smell; smells like orange blossom.

Soap & Glory Glad Pits Deodorant
$9.95 AUD at Kit Cosmetics

- The main thing I love about this is the fragrance (in fact, most of soap & glory products are fantastically fragranced).
- Provides 24 hours of anti-persperant.
- Has a low whitening formula so it doesn't leave streaks.
- Contains Aloe Vera which is good for soothing sensitive armpits.

Clinique Take the Day Off Makeup Remover
$35 AUD at David Jones

- Takes off eye makeup and lip makeup effortlessly (no need for constant rubbing)
- Love the fact that it also takes of lip makeup.
- If you wear waterproof eye makeup like me, you'll know how hard it is to take it off at the end of the day (especially mascara). This eye makeup remover is the best one I've tried in terms of how well it takes off my waterproof mascara (second best & cheaper option would be the Neutragena eye makeup remover - $10.90 AUD at Priceline)
- This is oil based so if you don't like oil-based products, I suggest you try the Neutragena one I mentioned above. Although I find that being oil-based, it takes off my eye makeup more easily.

Ciate Speed Coat
$24 AUD Kit Cosmetics

- Fast drying (only takes 60 seconds).
- Leaves a high gloss finish to your nails.
- Extends wear of nail polish as it locks in the colour.
- It's Formaldehyde-free (most nail polishes out there contain formaldehyde which has been linked to many health problems).
- Apparently this formula has also won many nail industry awards including U Magazines Best Top Coat Award.

Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pen - Soft Brunette
$48 AUD at Mecca Maxima

- The angle on the brow pencil makes it easy to achieve a nice smooth arch on the brow.
- Achieves full natural looking brows.
- Has a convenient brow wand at the end which helps comb through the eyebrows to make them look more clean and defined.
- Has all 3 brow properties - pencil, powder, and wax. It's applied like a pencil, goes on as a powder and sets to a wax.
- Stays on all day so it doesn't need to be touched up (Doesn't wear off like most eyebrow pencils do)
- Formula is not too soft or not too hard so you won't get artificial looking brows.

Smashbox Limitless Eye Liner - Onyx (Black)
$28.95 AUD at Kit Cosmetics

- Creamy formula allows it to glide on so easily.
- Colour is extremely pigmented.
- The main thing I love about this is that it's waterproof. I've been looking for a good waterproof pencil eyeliner for ages.. mainly to tight-line my top lash line (this creates fuller looking lashes). 
- Colour lasts all day however if you put it on the top waterline like I do, it may smudge a tiny little bit towards the end of the day (as it claims it won't smudge/budge for 8 hours).
- Has a convenient sharpener attached the the lid.
- Contains Vitamin E & Jojoba oil to moisturise and protect.
