May Beauty Favourites

So, for March I made a little video of all of my favourites for the month and had totally planned to do the same for last month and May, I even recorded them. However, I don't have  good photo editing software, and I've been really struggling with the YouTube online editing software. So sadly I'm just going to do this standard written post as a April-May beauty favourites combo. I'm going to do some research and hopefully invest in a descent  programme for June, or maybe July....

Anyway, on to the good stuff - my favourites! Most of these goodies I've told you about in past blog posts, but they are so good, they are worth mentioning again. If there is a more detailed review, I've popped a link on the name, if you want to hear more about them.

Firstly is my current home fragrance, this diffuser from The Sanctuary (£15). I'm normally such a candle girl, but these were on 3for2 in boots a while back, so I treated myself - to three. I love the spa-fragrance of The Sanctuary other products, and if you do to, you'll love this. I'm now a bit of a diffuser convert - I love walking through the door to be greeted by a beautiful fragrance, and no fire-risk issues, Hurrah.
In the shower I've been using Dove Purely Pampering body wash with pistachio cream and magnolia. It is only £2.29 and smells amazing and is so moisturising, you don't have to put on a body lotion - perfect for soft summer skin. On my hair, I've been dousing on the moisturiser too with the fab Bed Head Resurrection Shampoo (£10.35) and Conditioner (£11.65).
I'm also loving this Nuxe Shimmer Body Oil (£34), it also has an amazing summery scent and leaves limbs supple and with a flattering shimmer. Caudalie Polyphenol is my serum of choice (£35) as it gives a layer of antioxidising goodness to protect my skin from all those horrid free-radicals and has anti-ageing ingredients.
My nails were looking a bit shabby, I I went through the Dr Lewinn's Renunail treatment (£17.50), I forgot just how good it was - nails are super happy and strong again, love it when a product is even better than you remember.
I've been a bit under the weather recently, so have been grasping for the concealers, Smashbox BB eye cream (£19) has been doing wonders for my dark circles and the pink Max Factor CC crayon (£9.99) is fab for covering up any naught sun spots. Trying to get into the summer mood, I've returned to some of my bronze makeup items recently and my Laura Mercier Eye Caviar in Sandglow (£20.50) has been doing my eyes on sunny days.

So I hope you've enjoyed my April-May Beauty Favourites - please let me know which is you favourite favourite!
