March Favourites ’17

March, both personally and professionally, has been a hectic month but I managed to gather together a few of my favourites (some new, some golden oldies) which I’ve narrowed down to a Top 4.

  1. Billion Dollar Brows Universal Brow Pencil (£17)

My eyebrow routine doesn’t often change, I tend to use a standard high-street eyebrow pencil followed by a clear gel, applied by a spoolie brush, to set them in place. Talking to a friend, whose eyebrows I have long envied, suggested that I use Billion Dollar Brows Universal Brow Pencil as it’s her go-to.

When using this pencil, one thing that I love is it’s soft waxy consistency that allows you to build up the colour and coverage you so desire. It comes out quite faint to begin with, which is ideal for those with lighter brows, but it becomes darker and more intense when applied with pressure, suiting those who are darker too. Ultimately, it can provide a strong, defined yet natural looking brow… at a slightly steep price but, in my opinion, worth it.

    2. Superfacialist Vitamin C+ Gentle Daily Micro Polish Wash (Usually £9.99, now £6.66)

March is nearly over and I’ve made my way through the majority of Superfacialist’s Vitamin C+ Gentle Daily Micro Polish Wash and I can see and feel a noticeable difference in my skin. My skin feels less greasy and ‘clogged up’, especially in my T-zone. The wash has a pleasant citric smell, given the vitamin C+, but it’s subtle and not overpowering. When applying a small amount and rubbing it in circular motions, the tiny micro granules exfoliate your skin, lifting the dead skin and dirt. No doubt, I’ll be purchasing this again as I have done for the last few months.

  3. L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara (£9.99)

Not much I can say about this mascara other than it makes lashes appear healthier, longer, fuller and all with no clumps! I sometimes have to reapply it during the day come late afternoon however for the purse-friendly price, I have no complaints.

4. The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down: How to be Calm in a Busy World – Haemin Sunim (£7.99)

After reading an article about this book in the Guardian Newspaper, I thought it would be wise if I read it… considering how stressed and out of it I’ve felt recently. I was hoping that it would put some things into perspective for me and it did not disappoint.

This book is beautifully written and is full of many insightful and wise thoughts and practices, based around Buddhism in the modern world. It emphasises, hence the title, the importance of taking a breather and really listen to what is happening around you. It is so easy to let life whizz past you when your purely caught up in yourself and the consumed by the pressures of everyday life. Reading this book has enabled me to be, frankly, less self-centred and concerned with myself and I’m trying to embrace my surroundings more and those around me. Undoubtedly , this is a book I’ll be dipping in and out of when I’m feeling overwhelmed and disconnected.
