March flew by so fast. The most exciting thing about the fact that it’s over is the fact that warmer, sunny days are ahead and that by the end of this month I’m leaving to the States. Look out for my posts of my adventures and purchases whilst being there.
Without further ado here are my favourite products of the month of March:
1. Burt’s Bees Beeswax and Banana Hand Creme (£8.50) – March seemed to be a month when my hands got particularly dry and nothing seemed to be helping. I’d then remembered I still had some Burt’s Bees Almond Milk Hand Creme left so I started putting it on throughout the day and very liberally at night. WOW. I completely forgot how amazing it is. It’s so nourishing and moisturising that it brings immediate relief to really dry hands. Contains Sweet Almond Oil, Beeswax, Milk, and Glycerin. It does, however, take a while to get absorbed and leaves a greasy film, that’s why I use it mostly at night. Preferably with these gloves, if my hands are irritated and have dry patches between fingers. Also, it literally smells like marzipan. As I was running out of it, I decided to get the Beeswax and Banana one and oh my, the smell. I love bananas as much as I love coconut (banana and coconut smoothie, yum) and this reminds me of some delicious banana dessert or banana bread. I could literally eat it. It’s as fantastic as Almond Milk one. Got it for my mum and she loves it too. She didn’t really like the strong smell of the Almond version. Highly recommended!
2. Jacq’s Organics Carrot Con Leche Face Serum (£17)* – in the month of March I strayed a bit from my beloved Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil as I wanted to try something new. When I got this oil I was pleasantly surprised as it’s really amazing. With Carrot Oil being one of the main ingredients, this serum is great for anyone with blemish prone and sensitive skin type. Carrot Oil is rich in beta-carotene, which helps to repair damaged skin tissue. It also contains Vitamin E, Aloe Vera and Calendula extracts, and Apricot Kernel Oil which is rich in many vitamins and is very moisturising. Ever since I’ve started using it my skin is soft, moisturised and radiant. I use it interchangeably with Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil as both are superb.
3. Jacq’s Organics Carrot Con Leche Toner (£15)* – another current favourite of mine from Jacq’s Organics is this brilliant toner for all skin types, especially sensitive. With Peppermint Oil which helps with oily skin, Sweet Almond Oil rich in vitamins E and B, and Sweet Orange Oil to help promote the production of collagen, it’s a glorious concoction for your skin, preparing it for a facial oil or serum. It didn’t irritate my skin or made it dry. Doesn’t contain alcohol which is the most important thing for me as my skin gets red and dry when I use a toner with alcohol in it.
4. Michael Todd True Organics Citrus Cream Moisturizer (£17.50) – I’ve had this cream for about a year and a half, but as I kept purchasing different things I kind of forgot about it. Recently I thought it’s time to use it up because I’m running out of space to store all the products I own. After few days of using it I noticed that all the dry patches I had disappeared. I also realised that this was the cream I’d used when I got back from the States last summer before unpacking all my stuff. I didn’t have any cream or facial oil at home apart from this cream and Michael Todd True Organics Hyaluronic Acid + C Serum. I used this duo on my very dry and dehydrated skin after the long flight and within 2 or 3 days my skin looked glowing and felt surprisingly soft. I’ve recently run out of the serum (boo), but I will absolutely purchase it again. Even without the serum, the cream itself does a marvellous job at bashing dry spots and red skin. Not everything from Michael Todd True Organics is 100% pure but this cream and serum are 100% natural (although contain Phenoxyethanol which I usually try to avoid). The cream itself has Aloe Vera, Hyaluronic Acid (my favourite ingredient!), Grapeseed Oil, Rosehip Oil, Neem Oil, and DMAE. I’m also fond of the airless packaging. It makes the cream retain its freshness and all the good stuff and the product doesn’t expire so fast.
March, thank you for being a pretty good month.
