Current Spring Favourites

I use a purple shampoo once a week to get rid of any brassy tones and to help brighten my hair. I have tried a multitude of different shampoos, some cheap and some expensive, yet I always go back to the cheapest of them all; the Touch of Silver Brightening Shampoo*.  This does exactly what it does on the tin for just £3.19, my hair is more vibrant and fresh in just one wash. I really do believe there is no need to invest in a more expensive purple shampoo. I do however recommend that you use a deep conditioner with this shampoo as it is a little drying.

I have also been loving this Yankee Candle in Vanilla Lime (£10.99). The combination of rich vanilla, sweet cane sugar and zesty lime smells good enough to eat. It is not sickly sweet, but very fresh and fills the room with the most beautiful aroma. I also much prefer this style of glass to the typical Yankee Candle glass, and although it is smaller the throw is just as good. Another favourite is the new long wear range from China Glaze called EverGlaze. I have fallen in love with the colour We Be Jammin'*, a purple grey that is perfect all year round. This gel like polish does not need to be set with a UV light, but is as long lasting and as durable. The formulation is not the best, it can be quite hard to apply a thin layer, however the colour makes up for it. These are exclusive to Sally Beauty for just £8.99.

I had a bit of an impsule purchase in the Charlotte Tilbury store in Covent Garden and bought the Magic Foundation for £29.50. The service was fabulous, they couldn't do enough to help and I would definitely head back for more help. The foundation really is magic, it is perfect for my normal/dry skin and provides a flawless full coverage. It feels very moisturising on my skin and lasts all day. There is a colour for all skin tones so do check it out if you are after a new foundation.

Lastly, I have been using the Sanctuary Spa Wonder Body* a lot recently. Now that the weather has improved my legs are on show more now despite not seeing the sun for a while. This is essentially a tinted moisturiser for your body, giving you a very slight colour with a nice glow. It has sheer pigments and blurring skin particles that improve the look of your skin, giving you more confidence. It also contains grape seed and abyssinian oil which are rich in vitamin E and a good source of hydration.

What are you loving at the moment?


  1. I couldn't agree more with you about the Pro:voke purple shampoo! I always end up back to this one, more expensive ones tend to just dye my hands purple!!! xx

  2. I really want to try CT Magic Foundation but I haven't managed to get myself to one of her beauty counters to get colour matched. It sounds incredible!
