April faves

Hi girls, am going to try keep this short and sweet as i have a huge amount to write (phew!)

The first thing I am loving this month is my Bliss lemon and Sage body butter lite and the Naked Body butter light. These go on so well, no rubbing in is really required, they just melt! Heaven for someone like me, who half the time cannot be bothered to moisturize (naughty i know!). The lemon and sage butter is such a refreshing smell, and it makes me feel really summery. I not a huge fan of the smell of Naked body butter, at first i thought it was off! But hey ho, maybe its just me. These are perfect if you really like body butters but hate having to spend ten minutes rubbing them in, and they feel amazing on your skin. Love

Marks and Spencer’s Essential Extracts Wild Berry foam bath. This really is such a good product, it foams up something silly (bubbles!!!) and smells divine! I haven’t tried out the others in the range yet, but will be stocking up next time am in there.

My new Avon Arabian glow nailwear pro polish in sunshine. Yellow is my fave colour but am brave enough to wear it as a clothing item, BUT i will wear it on my nails! This polish is brighter then the sun! I just kept laying it up to see how bright i could get it, and it sure paid off.
So that concludes my fave products of the month, now onto the give away. Clarins have released a new skin care range called Daily energizers, it is aimed at a younger skin and claims it is packed with natural extracts to help diminish imperfections and to energise and boost skins radiance. Sounds good! The range has five products which include
a cleanser -Daily energizer cleansing gel, removes make up and pollution for clean, blemish free skin.
a toner- daily energizer wake up booster, instantly freshens, tones and hydrates skin
And three moisturizers- Daily energizer cream-gel, moisturizes, protects and treats normal to combination skin.
Daily energizer cream- moisturizers protects and treats normal to dry skin
Daily energizer lotion SPF15 Lightweight, oil free with UV protection for all skin types.

I love the sound of this range and think its great they have kept it minimal, young skin does not need thousands of lotions and potions!

Thanks for reading.

    I would love to be able to review this product if I could also do a review on my blog too as I would love to share it with my readers too. I have never had the opportunity to try Clarins before and have heard so many great things about both their skin care and their makeup line.

    Hello lovely! 😀 I'd love the opportunity to review the Clarins Cleanser and Moisturiser. I absolutely love blogging and reviewing lots of pretty things, and to review something from such an exceptional brand would be great! I love skincare, I've tried so many brands over the years and I have found that they've let me down so it would be great to try Clarins new range of skincare! 🙂 xxx

    Hello! I love your blog, and would like to enter for the Clarins! I have a dual passion for beauty, and writing, so blogging came naturally to me! When I got into the industry, Clarins was the first school I went to, and I learned how amazing their products are! I am also in the age group recommended for this product! Keep up the great blogs! 🙂

    A devoted reader,

    Hey honey! I'd love to review the products because they're products I've never tried before so I thin I'd be really impartial. I'm 18 so I have young skin which would really work. I absolutely love your blog and would love to work with you and I'm super dedicated! I have tried a few other high end moisturisers such as Clinique so I think I could compare it well. I'd put it in a few categories: price, packaging, product. I'd talk about smells and how my skin felt after a week's use, as well as straight away and I'd take lots of pictures.

    Have a look at my blog for past reviews

    I would love a chance to review the products because, to be honest, my skin is awful at the moment. I am trying all kinds of products both drugstore and high end, maybe this will be 'the one'?! Haha.

    Good luck to everyone and I hope you all have a beautiful bank holiday weekend xx

    Awwwhhh man! I don't think I can think of anything productive to write, like the gals above 🙁

    Urmmm….I'd love to give these products a try, one of the reasons being that my go to cleanser has just been discontinued (only found out when I went to buy a new one!) – sad times 🙁

    I'm 18 so have the "young" skin that these products cater for! So maybe they might just be a couple of miracle workers for my skin! This is such a good idea, I may do it for my blog hmmmm…. Love Amy xx (So much for not writing a lot hahaaa)
