Spring favourites!

As I like to stick to a product and get a new one not before I finish it, it’s a bit difficult for me to come up with new favourites every month. However, today is the second day I see the sun for this year (yesterday was the first, lol), and in my mind it’s already spring. So, in today’s post – Spring favourites, I’m going to show you four products that I have been loving lately! If you are a ‘favourites’ lover like I am, then keep on reading!


So my first favourite is this adorable shower gel by the Patisserie De Bain. I’m so in love with its vanilla scent, it’s literally addictive! I very much appreciate the fact that it doesn’t irritate my skin, which is a number one factor when it comes to picking a favourite. There is also a body butter which compliments this product and it’s also amazing, but I just thought that there’s no need to include them both!


I may go out without foundation or lipstick, but a mascara is an absolute must in my daily make up routine. One day I got the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara  and have been using it since then. At the beginning I didn’t like it at all and thought that people were raving about it for nothing, but after some time I simply fell in love with it. I guess it just needed to dry up a little. Other than that, I like that it lasts so much when I wear it and then it’s also incredibly easy to remove at the end of the day.


I have already talked about this product in here (Birchbox) and here (friday make up look). So if you have been following me for a while, you would be familiar with this Model Co Highlighter. I honestly wear it everyday, and this comes from a non-highligher fan person! I just love how gorgeous it looks and how subtle its shimmer is. I don’t use the bronze shade as much as the other two but hey, summer is coming!


The last product in my Spring favourites is this lovely fragrance! First I got a sample (which came in an adorable tiny bottle) and then fell so much in love with it, that I’ve ordered a full size of Versace Bright Crystal. I find this scent to be very fresh and feminine and because of that it quickly found its place in my heart. It doesn’t cause me headaches, so I love it even more!

So that was it from my spring favourites, are you familiar with any of these products? I’d love to see your favourites too! Thank you for reading xx

    That Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara surprised me! It made my list of favourite discoveries last year, it’s that good!
    Our weather here in Toronto is finally warming up and there’s rain instead of snow (no sun though), which is a good sign that Spring is around the corner!

    I had the same issue with the Maybelline mascara, so confused about what the hype was all about. Now I get it..

    Funnily enough I’ve just ran out of mascara, I’ll be off to buy the one you’ve just recommended asap. I’ll probably have to treat myself to the Versace fragrance too. A lovely post!

    I thought the same about the Lash Sensational Mascara but then it grew on me a little more with each use haha xx

      Haha I think it happens with most of the mascaras, although it’s a bit disappointing when you don’t like something from first sight!
