March 2015 Favs

So we're like properly in April now... the lighter nights are here (f***ing eventually!) and I'm almost over my SAD, I've completed no wine lent and what appropriate way to use bloggers mark the beginning of a month?  Yep, that's right, by picking some of our fav products from the previous one!
So here we go:
In March I particularly fell in love with Elemis' Frangipani Monoi Body Cream, I've felt that with the change in weather my skin has needed a bit more than usual and this is quite thick in texture as it almost borders on body butter territory but without the faff.  
March also seen the first application of self tan for me this year and I used the St Tropez Express Bronzing Mousse and I had forgotten how much I love it!  I find that the colour of this is really good for me and it lasts... despite boiling hot baths and body oil it wears off evenly and a week later it still gives me a little colour.
If you're a skincare nut you need to try Merumaya; I am OBSESSED with the melting cleansing balm from the range.  It's up there with Emma Hardie's for me and it is much more affordable.  I bought two 100mls from QVC for something like £29 AND they come with 7 face flannels.  The inner Caroline Hirons loves this fact!
I don't know if this is an age thing or a skincare addict thing but I'm eventually figuring out that on an evening my skin does respond better to an oil over anything else.  I had a dalliance with Clarin's Blue Orchid for a little while and although I still like it, I've been hooked on Sarah Chapman's Overnight Facial of late.  I find that the bottle is genius, one pump and you're done; no fiddling.  The smell is nice; it has a clean smell to it and the next morning my face does feel calmed and rejuvenated.  
Lastly in my favs (if you can make it out in the pic) is a weird bobble which looks like those key ring clip things you used to get in the 90s!  It's called an invisibobble which isn't entirely true as you can see it but it's comfortable to wear all day. You know sometimes us girls can be the victim of bobble drama when you want to wear your hair up, but not tight cos it's too much but it needs to be tight otherwise you'll get equally irritated with having to take it out and tie it up again?  Well this fills that gap!  You can tie your hair up and it stays put even if you haven't wrapped it around like 50 times.  It's the simple things in life isn't it?!
If you've done a March Favs post please leave your link below and I'll have nosey; fav posts are always a good read for me so I can see what products I may need in my life!
