March Beauty Favourites!

Another month has gone and I have another load of products to rave about. For the last few days of the month I got snowed in (so much for Spring starting!) so I haven't bought that many new products so mostly these are some old favourites i've dug out including some new products for good measure. 
First up is a clarifying shampoo I use once a week, LUSH I Love Juicy. I find this shampoo makes my feel super clean and gets rid of any build up, it has smells lovely and fruity! Next up some skincare bits, first the Dr Organic Manuka Honey Face Mask. I've only used this a couple of times but so far I really like it, it leaves my skin feeling really clean but not tight and it seems to also be helping with any pesky blemishes, full review on this one soon. Another new addition is the La Roche Posay Hydraphrase Intense Masque, I've had some horrible dry patches from blemishes this month and after applying this all over my face i've seen a big difference in my skin feeling a lot more hydrated. I can see this being a big favourite of mine for sure.
As I said above i've had some horrible dry patches this month in which every foundation seemed to cling to apart from the Bourjous Healthy Mix Serum.(review) With my skin being more on the dry side this has felt lovely on my skin and been the perfect base. I'm also totally in love with the Bourjous Healthy Mix Concealer, (review) this is hands down my favourite concealer because it isn't drying and covers well and lasts without going cakey. I've been loving cream blushes recently especially this new addition, Stila Convertible Colour in Lillium, (review) this is super pigmented and the perfect dusky peachy pink to had a healthy glow to the cheeks, i'm a little obsessed with it!
Onto eyes i've dug out the Stila In The Light Palette (review) this month, this is a great everyday palette and I can create some of my favourite eye looks with it. Another favourite is one of the best mascaras i've tried, Revlon Grow Lucious, this ticks all the boxes for me, volume, length, holds a curl and it gets better as it starts to dry out. My go to quick smokey eye has been smudging the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Liner in Taupe (review) all over the upper and lower lash line and it looks great and takes seconds to do, perfect.
In trying to get into the Spring spirit I wacked Essie Watermelon on my nails, it's the perfect cross between a pink and red and sure does lift my mood when i'm wearing it. Following on with this theme is my current coral obsession (full post on that here) is the Revlon Lip Butter in Tutti Fruitti which is a bright orange but when mixed with your lip colour makes a lovely coral shade. Finally a great bargain find the Natural Collection Lipstick in Raspberry, the texture of this reminds me of the MAC Creme Sheen lipsticks and the colour is so pretty and the best thing is it only costs £1.99! Amazing. 
Left Tutti Fruitti, Right Raspberry.
So those are my favourites for this month, i'm definitely trying to rotate my products more and using some things I used to love and I think it might just be working! What have been some of your favourite products this month?
