Beauty Hit List: April & May 2017

April and May have gone by in a flash and suddenly it’s time for another Beauty Hit List! These are the latest products that I’ve been reaching for and, as always, some are new releases while the others are simply new to me!

Let’s dive in and take a look…

Marula Oil range by Paul Mitchell 

One of the reasons why I don’t tend to grow my hair out much is because I have really, REALLY thick hair. And, no matter what length it is, it can get a bit difficult to manage if I don’t look after it! I love discovering new ways to treat my locks and keep them feeling soft and the Marula Oil styling products have the moisture boost of a hair mask built into their sprays and creams. The Rare Oil Style Extending Primer is my favourite from the collection – it’s been ideal for quenching my hair during the hot weather lately.

Solait SPF 50 Moisturising Sun Lotion by Superdrug 

I’m a bit of a broken record when it comes to wearing sunscreen I will admit but, at this time of year, it’s more important than ever to have a tube of SPF 50 in your handbag. One of the best things about summer is how spontaneous you can be, right? An afternoon in the park can suddenly turn into dinner al fresco (and beyond), so I’m keeping this Superdrug Solait sunscreen handy for wherever the day takes me. Feel the burn? Not on my watch!

Unicorn Snot glitter hair and body gel 

Had to. I was in a drugstore in Aspen earlier this month when a basket of sparkles caught my eye and, when I investigated further, I found jars of Unicorn Snot! Not only did I give in to the name but the sparkly gel also made me feel very nostalgic! I figured it would come in handy for glitter roots, smearing on my cheekbones and much more. Plus, it’s a jar of pink glitter, guys – I don’t need any other reasons. Ten bucks well spent!  #sorrynotsorry 

Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Let’s Go Crazy by NARS

Oh, friends – if there was ever a clever ploy to entice me to buy a beauty product, naming the colours after Prince songs is a surefire way to win me over! Dig if you will, the picture: I was cruising the aisles in Sephora and checking out the NARS counter when, all of a sudden, the names of the shades started to feel oh-so-familiar. Dirty Mind. Do Me, Baby. Get Off. Pop Life. It was the dream we all dream of (or at least, the dream I dream of!). So I limited myself to just one – a rich, vivid pink in Let’s Go Crazy. I can’t promise that I won’t go back for the others soon though – after all, what good is a playlist with only one song?

Well Heeled Express Pedicure System by Magnitone

Summer means sandals, and sandals usually mean getting your feet out. Which is great, except I’ve had tights and boots on for the last five months and I don’t think you’re ready for these tootsies. Heck, I’m not sure I am! However, there’s something super relaxing about giving yourself a home pedicure, and this express system from Magnitone is ideal for buffing and smoothing my feet during a Netflix marathon. So if you see me parading around in open-toed shoes, it’s all down to Magnitone!

I guess this edition of the Beauty Hit List really does cover everything from head to toe! But what else do I need to check out? Be sure to tell me what’s made your list too!
