March Beauty Favourites 2017 including Pixi & Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse, Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette, Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect, Bourjois' Radiance Reveal and Barry M Speedy Quick dry nail polish in Road Rage.
It's back to the blog this month for my favourites post. I like to switch it up between my blog and YouTube. This month I actually have a lot of new products in my favourites, I thought it was about time I treated myself to some new products I've been lusting over for the past couple of months. I posted a haul on my YouTube channel yesterday if you'd like to see what else I've picked up. For now here are my favourites I've really enjoyed in March.

This month I thought it was about time I took back control of my cleansing routine - no more face wipes or just using micellar water, I needed to get my hands on a decent real cleanser again! I've been eyeing up the new Pixi & Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse for a while and couldn't wait to try it for myself. I had never tried anything from Pixi before, but since this was a collaboration with Caroline Hirons who's pretty much the skincare queen, I just knew I was going to love this. I think I will do a full review on this cleanser shortly, but for now just know that I love it! It's a two step cleanse with a  balm/oil cleanser and then cream cleanser. This is the perfect pair to leave you with super soft and super cleansed fresh skin. The balm is so gorgeous and smooth (similar to the Clinique Take The Day Off and The Body Shop Camomile balm). The balm is very much capable of removing a full face of makeup, but the next step is the thick creamy cleanser, to ensure your face is squeaky clean. This makes cleansing your face such a joy, I actually look forward to washing my face thanks to this. My face just feels so fresh and healthy after, I already want to buy back ups!

The next newbie this month was of course the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette (full review here). It was about time I splurged and picked this up, I couldn't ignore the hype for any longer. I told myself I didn't need any more eyeshadow palettes, but couldn't resist the peachy perfection and I'm so glad I cracked! I can't recommend this enough, it's full of the most perfect peachy golden shades that are going to see me right this Spring/Summer. The formula is by far one of the most soft and buttery formulas out there, it's of such high quality. The shades are beautiful to blend and very high pigmented. I just can't fault this and to top it off, it smells like peaches! Every time I open the palette I can't help but enjoy the sweet peach scent, it just makes this palette that extra bit special.

The lipstick I couldn't stop reaching for in March was Charlotte Tilbury's Bitch Perfect. I've talked about this a lot recently, I just can't get enough of the peachy pink shade! Bitch Perfect is part of Charlotte's KISSING range, meaning it's enriched with gorgeous ingredients and anti oxidants that leave your lips feeling super soft and kissable! The formula is lovely and creamy and so comfortable to wear, my lips always feel cashmere soft with this on. The shade is lovely and warm coming into Spring/Summer. Bitch Perfect is a perfect all rounder, comfortable enough for a pretty everyday look, but with a hint of peachy pink colour to make a statement in your evening look.

I've stepped away from my trusty Collection concealer this past month and reached for my Bourjois' Radiance Reveal a little more. This is perfect this time of year, it's great to give your skin that added bit of radiance and brightness. I love to use this on my under eyes to give them that extra pick me up and lightness. The formula is lovely and creamy and easy to blend. This is not at all cakey, just silky smooth to blend into your skin nicely. I don't tend to use this on my blemishes as it's more suited for dark circles and to add radiance. I've really been loving this coming into Spring, it just gives your skin that extra bit of a glow and vitality.

The nail polish I've been loving this month is an old favourite from a year or two ago, it's the Barry M Speedy Quick Dry in Road Rage. This is a fun mint pastel green. As you can probably tell, I'm gearing up for Spring/Summer, I love these bright pastel shades, I think they look so cute when the suns out and also make your tan pop (even though I'm still pasty white!). This is the great affordable alternative to Essie's Mint Candy Apple. The Barry M speedy formula is lovely to apply with a shiny pigmented finish. Of course as the name suggests, the polish drys pretty quick compared to others. I find this to easy to apply for a gorgeous finish and Road Rage has just been such a fun shade to welcome in the Spring.

As you can tell from my picks in March, I've really been trying to welcome in the Spring this past month, I'd love to know what your favourites have been beauties?
