April favourites

Hello everyone!

For me last month was all about prepping my skin and my hair for "the big event".  My brother got married on Friday 25th and I was his witness.  :)

Without further ado, here are my April beauty favourites:


Holland & Barrett Aloe Vera Gel Bio Active Skin Treatment + Vitamin E Capsules (100iu)


I usually mix the content of a capsule of vitamin E with a blob of Aloe vera and use instead of my night cream a couple of times a week.  During the month of April I applied this mixture more often than that.  Both ingredients help to heal and regenerate the skin.  Whenever I use Aloe vera and vitamin E at night, I wake up to glowing, clear, even skin.  I LOVE it!  Both Aloe vera and vitamin E can be used for active acne, acne scars, pigmentation, anti-ageing  and dry skin among other skin conditions.

Biafine Topical Emulsion


I use this as a spot treatment on any blemishes I get.  This product also reduces the appearance of  acne scars and hyper pigmentation.

Product description:
Biafine is a water-based emulsion formulated for the dressing and management of superficial wounds, minor abrasions, dermal ulcers, donor sites, 1st and 2nd degree burns, including sunburns, and radiation dermatitis.  Biafine provides an optimum moist environment for the healing process and isolates the wound from harmful germs and other external contamination.

Pure Coconut Oil + Suave Naturals Tropical Coconut Conditioner


I melt some coconut oil, mix it with my Suave conditioner and distribute it evenly on my hair.  Then I tie my hair in a top knot with a spring hair tie any go to sleep.  The next morning I cleanse my hair as usual.  This treatment leaves my hair so soft, I don't need to apply any leave-in products whenever I use it.  No serum, no leave in conditioner, no anti-frizz cream...NOTHING!  This is huge for me, my hair usually turn into a frizz ball as soon as it dries if I don't use any leave-in products.  This is by far the best overnight hair treatment I ever used. 


What were your April favourites?  Have you used any of my favourites before?  Leave a comment and let me know!

Biafine, could it be a similar product of the Avène Cicalfate cream?

@Essential Honesty I never used Cicalfate Cream. The two products have different ingredients but similar uses.
