March has been a whirlwind month, right?! The Beast from the East introduced the month and sadly the weather hasn’t warmed up since. I also had my car’s MOT (groan) and I’ve been working overtime (which meant scoffing my face with Easter chocolate had to be delayed). But, spending on a few little rewards makes these gripes of mine a little more bearable.
My New Purchases Show & Tell March 2018 is still a bit random, much like last month’s. Since I’ve been doing this series for over a year now too, I can’t help but reflect back on what I was buying this time a year ago. Remarkably, there’s one big similarity which I shall divulge in a moment…
New Purchases Show & Tell March 2018 video
Bioderma Hydrabio serum – 26 seconds in
Surprisingly, my go-to serum has never made it into my New Purchases Show & Tell list (neither has my moisturiser, but more on that in a moment). If you have dry and dehydrated skin, like me, I’d recommend giving this a go. It’s the best serum I’ve tried so far for my skin type, and I haven’t stopped repurchasing it since. (Throwback: I first gave this a go after receiving it in my Birchbox UK September 2016!)
Nuxe Crème Prodigieuse Enriche – 1:30 minutes in
There’s a few daily moisturisers I’ve had that have helped my dry skin (this sounds like a blog post I should write), but recently I’ve become attached to Nuxe’s Crème Prodigieuse Enriche. This was another discovery via Birchbox and has stayed with me ever since. (BOTH of these items layer well too.)
Acuvue 1-day Moist Contact Lenses – 2:30 minutes in
I’m still *sort of* new to contact lenses. Having tried them for the first time in the last few years and having only tried one brand/type of them, it was time for a check up. As expected, my prescription had changed slightly but when I mentioned that my eyes can get dry wearing the brand of contacts I had the optician suggested I’d try Acuvue’s 1 Day Moist lenses. So far, so good – and they also block UV!
Tickets to The Rolling Stones! – 3:57 minutes in
At this time last year, I’d bought tickets to see the Gorillaz at Dreamland Margate, which turned out to be one of my favourite gigs of the year! This year, I’ve bought tickets to see The Rolling Stones in Stratford and I can’t blooming wait. Yes I know they’re quite old now, but until I have a time machine to transport myself back to any of their concert in the 60s or 70s, I’m quite content seeing them as they are. Thank you.
As I mentioned in the video, I’ve felt my last few New Purchases Show & Tell’s haven’t been as exciting and interesting as they used to be. I hope you’ve still enjoyed watching/reading them all the same, but next month will mark a return of varied purchases that are not boring I promise you! This is mostly because I have a BIG holiday in May that I’m preparing for – more details will come soon.
I do hope this series hasn’t gone sour or has bored you, though. I’m not a ‘monthly favourites’ type girl and enjoy the currentness (is that a word?) of my New Purchases Show & Tell series. So for now, I will soldier on and I can’t wait to show you the things I’ve already been buying in April!
I have not been asked, sponsored or paid to review any of these products. I just like to shop!
