April Loves

Hello everyone! So, I haven't really been posting as much as I should (don't worry, I've given myself a firm talking-to!) and I know this post is a little late. But hey, better one week late than two or three, right? ha!

OK so here are my favorite products from April. I've been using a lot of new products, but these are ones that I reached for the most frequently.

Dove Intense Damage Hair Mask, Schwarzkopf Palette Intensive Color Creme, #6-888, Intensive Red

Last month, I became a red head. Schwarzkopf Palette was the dye I chose to use, and I was so happy with the results that I used it again to dye my regrowth and freshen up the color.

Dove's Intense Damage Hair Mask is probably one of the best supermarket hair masks I've used. It's incredibly rich. I don't think it's the best mask I can be using right now, but it'll do until I find a replacement.

Missha Detoxifying Peeling Gel, Bath and Body Works Bali Mango Body Lotion

I've been using the Missha gel to exfoliate my face. It's very gentle, so I don't mind using it a few times a week. It's one of those that rub off the dead skin instead of using granules (although this does have teeeny tiny granules in it!)

Bath and Body Works Bali Mango is just my favorite body lotion right now. The scent is so summery and the texture is just right. It actually moisturizes very well, which I wasn't really expecting. The B&BW body care products get the job done! The only thing I don't like is that there isn't really very much in the bottle. So I save  it for when I go out :)

MAC Wonder Woman MSF - Pink Power, Illamasqua Nail Polish - Gamma, Maybelline Dream Touch Mousse Blush

Pink Power has become one of my staples and I will have to hunt down another one. The bronzer is just dark enough to give me a hint of color and the other shades give my skin such a pretty glow. 

I like to team it with the Maybelline Dream Touch Mousse Blush underneath. This is so easy to wear. I literally apply it to my cheeks and blend it out with my fingers. It gives me that 'just back from a run' flush. This is one of my favorite products that I use if I have to go out after the gym.

Illamasqua Gamma is probably going to be my favorite polish for a while. The color is just so amazing! I literally put this on and just keep staring at my fingernails! So pretty!

Well, those are my favorite products for April! What have you guys been loving recently? Hope everyone is having/has had an amazing weekend!!

    It's gorgeous, Joy! I love putting on the lotion, I just wish the smell lasted longer :( It's like taking a dip in a giant beach cocktail! hehe

  5. Hi Aseya! You totally reminded me to do my April Favourites - I'm always so late!

    Kisses, Melanie

  6. Mmm so annoyed I didn't buy Gamma when we were in Bloomingdales! I've never tried that hair mask, how much is it here? xx

    I think it's like 30 dirhams? It's pretty good for a supermarket product, but my hair is just so ruined it needs a lot more help! haha!
