Spring Must Haves

So as spring is well and truly on it's way I thought I'd share a few of my favourites for the next coming few months. 

Schwarzkopf Got2Be beach matte texturising salt spray
I've loved this product for a while now, and as we're slowly getting more spring/summer whether it's perfect for a more relaxed look for the hot weather this product is perfect. I love nothing more than effortless waves when you've just come out of the sea, and with this you have that weightless curls feeling. A must have for spring/summer for effortless hair. 
Palmer's firming butter. 
For anyone who's a mum - you'll definitely understand this. After having a baby you seem to droop in most places! Ha ha. But I love this. I use bio-oil and the Palmer's stretch mark cream when I was pregnant, I still found that I got stretch marks, especially as I lost the baby weight afterwards, but this seems to help tone the skin and give you a bit of a help. Plus it has a gorgeous smell! Another essential, especially for me, with braving the more spring/summer months
French connection nail polish 
I received this (along with another 3 polishes in the set) for Christmas and I haven't been a really big nail polish fan until lately - I've always had such short stubby nails (yes, I'm a biter!) but lately I've been growing them, and the most exciting part is using nail polish! I love this shade, it goes on quite light and it's a very subtle shade but a lovely light colour for spring. Also, another thing I have found with the French connection nail polishes is that they are quite thick and have quite a matte texture to them, I love the set I have, which includes a gold nail varnish (the best glitter nail varnish I've come across) and a deep red one, that I love equally. 
Rimmel London "wake me up" concealer 
I'm not a huge fan of Rimmel London concealers and foundations as they've never really worked for me, so I bought this a few weeks ago just as something to have before I could get to a boots that stocks No7 (my local doesn't have it in.) However this has changed my mind completely. I love this concealer! It has a 'anti-fatigue effect and radiance glow' and it actually does. Being a mum, you can't help but have bags under your eyes from only having a few hours sleep at a time, and I also have quite dark circles under my eyes through my genetics so I was quite surprised how well it works. I use my real techniques miracle complexion sponge to work with the concealer and it leaves your dark circles bright and barely unrecognisable. An amazing buy and perfect light base, it would be brilliant with a tinted moisturiser or a BB cream for a subtle bit of make up in the upcoming weather

Maybelline master smoky shadow pencil
This is something I've been using for about a year now and it's my ultimate favourite item in my make up bag. I have quite big eyes and eyeshadow doesn't suit me very well, so my eyeliner seems to look a lot better with heavier make up, however with this you can create many looks, whether it being a winged look, a very subtle look or a full smokey eye look. Plus, it comes with a sponge tip to blend out the darkness of the crayon.
