April and May Beauty Favourites

How are we nearly at the end of May already? I feel like this year is already going way too fast for my liking, but of course, as we are getting closer to the end of May that means we are getting closer to my due date too. I am 38 weeks and 3 days along as of today which is super exciting, but I am also feeling a bit 'meh' lately too. I just cannot wait to meet little man number 3, but the pain is excruciating as of late, making it so difficult to even find the tiniest bit of motivation to blog. Yes, I am still in pain and swollen everywhere but I seem to have found that motivation today, thank god.

Anyway, putting that exciting news aside, as it's been way too long to post an Aprils Favourites, I thought I'd combine it with this months too, although there isn't too much to share. I've been using the same products over the last two months. I've become quite attached to them, and for good reason.

Masque Bar Metallic Foil Sheet Masks

As I've mentioned many times before, my skin is all over the place right now, which I put down to pregnancy and hormonal changes. I have been keeping my skin in check by indulging in a face mask or two per week and putting a strict skincare regime in place, and I like to think it's really working for me. 

Now over the last few months I have been trying out different face masks, including peel-off masks, clay masks and charcoal face masks, but the ones that I am really favouring over those are sheet masks. They are simple, effective, easy to use, and best of all, they are mess-free. I guess you could say I like the easy option. I mean, all you have to do is whack it out a packet and place it on your face and leave it to work its magic. Pretty simple, eh? 

I have tried a few sheet masks over the last few years(though I haven't tried an extortionate amount), but the latest ones that I have put to the test are the Masque Bar Metallic Foil Sheet Masks. I previously tried out the Masque Bar Pretty Animalz Sheet Masks(which I really loved) so I was intrigued to give the new foil sheet masks a go.

There are three different options to choose from; Rose Gold, Silver or Gold. I have put two of the three to the test, Rose Gold and Gold.

Palmer's Olive Oil Hair Range Review

 At times my hair can be far from manageable. It's thin, coloured, knotty, somewhat dry and seriously lacking in the volume department, so I am always trying out and testing new hair products to help address those issues. I previously tried the Shea Moisture Smooth and Tame Argan Oil and Almond Milk Range out(which I really loved) but beforehand I put the Palmer's Olive Oil Hair Range to the test.

Palmer's currently have a very extensive range of products using their Olive Oil formula(twelve to be specific), and I have been trying out four of them. I have been trying out the Olive Oil Smoothing Shampoo, Replenishing Conditioner, Weightless Shine Dry Oil Mist and the Deep Conditioner.

The Olive Oil Formula is most specifically designed for those with hair that is prone to frizz. I am quite prone to frizz and it can be a challenge to fix it, especially when it's exposed to damp and humid weather.
