My Favourite Beauty Products for April 2017

My Favourite Beauty Products for April 2017


Blogging took a little bit of a backseat in April as I went away to visit family in Adelaide for a couple of weeks and was subjected to a house with no wi-fi.  Let's just say I used up all my data in the first 3 days haha. For anyone wondering, I would rather get teeth pulled with no pain relief than go on a plane with my toddler again but that's a story for another day.


I've got a few newbies in this month's favourites and a couple of things I dug out from my stash that I'd forgotten I owned.

I was sent the Rimmel #Insta Fix & Go Primer & Setting Spray in April and as I'm not too much of a fan of setting sprays in general, I was surprised to actually really love this.  I've been using it both as a primer and setting spray but I think I enjoy using it more as a primer.  I'll be writing a full review on this soon so stay tuned for that.  The Redken All-Soft Mega Mask came to me as a mistake by RY.com.au, I had actually ordered just the normal All-Soft Mask that comes in a tub and I use all the time but they sent me this instead and I thought I may as well keep it and try it out.  I'm super glad I did because it is amazing!  It's a funny tube that has another tube inside it so you have to press right in the middle of the back to get both creams to come out at the same time.  If you have dry hair that needs a pick me up I highly recommend you pick up one of these as the results are instant and you'll fall in love I promise.

Nars Eyeshadow Duo - Kalahari
Nars Eyeshadow Duo - Kalahari

I dug out this Nars eyeshadow duo in Kalahari and fell back in love.  Both shades are perfect for a quick all over the lid neutral eye and they blend so amazingly without losing any pigment.  The In Essence Lavender Body Oil is one I've had in my cupboard for awhile but I've been rubbing this into my shoulders and chest at nighttime to help me relax and get an extra good nights sleep.  It's such a luxurious body oil and the scent is not too overpowering so it's the perfect thing to add to your nighttime ritual if you're having problems getting to sleep.

Last but not least I was sent some new brushes to try by Platinum Brushes and this cute pink sponge was included.  I'm a huge fan of the original beauty blender and I've tried lots of imitations but nothing has been as good as the beauty blender.  Until now.  This came in a two pack with an angled purple sponge too but the pink is my favourite.  It doesn't feel exactly the same as the beauty blender but it's definitely very close and it gives the same finish.  The two-pack retails for $10 and can be purchased at your local Woolworths making it a lot cheaper and a lot more accessible than the original Beauty Blender.  

And that's another month done and dusted.  I recently hit 2K over on Instagram so I'll be holding a giveaway soon to celebrate.  If you're not already following me please head over to Instagram and add me @imminentbeauty so you don't miss out on the giveaway.

Happy May!

*As mentioned in this post the Rimmel setting spray and the Platinum Sponge was sent to me for my consideration.  This doesn't influence my opinion in any way.  I believe in honesty and transparency so will only ever write my true opinions.  The other items featured in this post were all purchased by me!

  2. Congratulations on the 2k Insta reach!! The beauty blender dupe sounds interesting especially as I've tried so many dupes of it but nothing really lives up to the original! Great post x
