March Loves.

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion
I have rediscovered this little lovely after leaving it in Scotland for a few months. It's really moisturising but also dries in seconds, making it a good makeup base. 
I've had this product for about a year or two and to be honest I've never been that interested in it before, I'm not sure why. I guess most people have this, it's just one of those products isn't it? This really is a dramatically different moisturiser, more like a gel than a cream and not greasy at all. 

Kiehl's Amino Acid Shampoo & Condition
I've had this sitting in my cupboard for a while now and not even noticed. Graeme was on tour in America last year and he collected up all the hotel miniatures for me. I thought they would be your usual lavender scented rubbish, but he'd actually uncovered an amazing miniature Bliss collection! I'd never heard of this shampoo so it was pushed to the back of my bathroom cabinet, that was until I was in Space NK recently and I saw the bottle there! 
So I've been using it recently and it's absolutely amazing, both the shampoo and conditioner make my hair so soft, shiny and really lightweight. I know I shouldn't have, but I definitely judged this product by it's horrible, plain cover. Has anyone else tried this? It's amazing! I haven't seen the price of a full size bottle though... 

John Frieda Luxurious Volume Thickening Blow Dry Lotion
I've been using this for a while now, and it's definitely one of my favourite volume boosting sprays. I have to wash my hair everyday or I feel yuck, so my hair is always soft and sits flat. I would love to have big, voluminous hair but it's just not meant to be. This does put a bit of volume into my flat hair, without being greasy or crispy. 

Clinique Even Better Foundation
Another Clinique product! I've had this for a while, and it's a really great foundation. I have some marks where past blemishes haven't quite faded so I got this to help. It's just the right coverage and easy to blend. I actually use MAC Pro Longwear concealer underneath to make my skin look heaps better. I know you're not meant to put on concealer before foundation, but I think if it works for you then it's okay. I've actually never really checked to see if it helps the marks on my face as they seem to disappear on their own after a while anyway, but I think it probably does help. 

Lush The Olive Branch Shower Gel
The smell of this is absolutely gorgeous. I would describe the scent as "musky" but i'm terrible at describing scents so it probably isn't musky at all. The smell stays on for ages afterwards, and my whole bathroom smells of it. Such a lovely product, it's a lovely strong smell to wake me up in the morning too. Love this! 

I'm sure there are many other products I've been reaching for recently, but these are the ones I can remember at the moment. Tell me your favourites! 

Currently loving: Breakbot - Shades of Black


  1. I have the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream as well & I've NEVER used it.
    It really IS one of those products.
    How weird!

  2. I always put my concealer on first. Oooooops perhaps I shouldn't!

  3. I use John Frieda's Luxurious Volume Hairspray and LOVE it, will definitely give the Blow Dry Lotion a go for a change!

  4. Great products. I love using olive branch in the morning, it smells amazing!

  5. I love The Olive Branch! I bought the solid perfume ages ago but I can't remember where I put it!
    I didn't know you weren't supposed to put concealer on before foundation.. this is where I've been going wrong!!

  6. Everything looks nice. i want to try the olive branch. x

  7. ooooh i do love a bit of lush xxxx

  8. I LOVE that shower gel. A night club in Newcastle used to use these for their handwash but they stopped doing it (probably because people kept stealing them).

  9. I will have to check out some of these products - I love Lush and the Olive Branch sounds lovely, and I really like the sound of that Clinique foundation. I got the dramatically different moisturiser free with Glamour mag last month and I do really like it - like you said it's very light but not greasy which is great.

  10. Just rediscovered the dramatically different too after getting it free with glamour. Now I'm wondering why I ever stopped using it? Ha. Love the blog x
