I’m sharing some beauty items with you today. Items that I highly recommend and I wouldn’t be without. I was going to title this post ten items and then I kept adding more! This list could go on and on! I will list the items below left to right to explain why I love having these items in my life. I will be doing a short video about these items and will leave a link to the vlog here when it’s finished. If you haven’t subscribed yet please do!
These items I couldn’t be without and recommend 100%
Seche Vite Top Coat
I’ve been using this top coat for some time and I have never managed to find another that doesn’t keep my nail varnish intact longer than this. I use the Rimmel gel nail varnishes with this and it works a treat. Leaves a nice glossy finish too.
Ever since I have used this silk pillowcase my hair is less frizzy and the curls stay in place longer. I don’t have such a wrinkly face when I get up in the mornings either! My beloved kept pinching mine and I had to get another one! They feel so good! If you want to read more about the pillowcase you can find my post here
Elizabeth Arden Eight our Cream
If you have been a reader for a while then you will know how much I love this cream. If I were on a desert island and could only have one beauty item it would be this. I use it mainly on my lips and have never had dry lips since using it and that’s around twenty-five years! I’m sure it’s kept some lip lines at bay too. I couldn’t recommend this enough and a tube lasts over a year!
I’ve been using a Derma Roller just over a year now. I use the tiniest of a roller and this is just enough to penetrate the skin to boost collagen production and help my serums do their work. If you want to read more about how this can really help your skin and give your anti-ageing beauty routine a boost then read here I really recommend you try this and the roller above is only £9.99
Simple Eye Make-Up Remover
Another product that I’ve used for years. It does what it says and doesn’t irritate my eyes. I’m very prone to sensitive eyes and a lot of eye makeup removers have irritated them in the past. Cheap as chips too!
The Aquis Hair Towel
I’ve been using my Aquis hair towel for over a year now. This is an oblong shaped piece of material (not towelling) that sucks all the wet out of your hair after washing. If you have long hair or thick hair these are an absolute godsend! It’s a flat woven material and not like towelling and this is not fictitious on the air when rubbed. Another cool item to keep the frizz at bay.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Lip Liner
If you want a lip colour to last all day then make it this one! I use it to not only line my lips but shade in with this too. It will last all day. Trust me! I don’t use this every day though as it can be a bit drying, but when I’m out for the day and need it to last this is what I use.
Estee Lauder Perfectly Clean Foaming Cleanser
I have used this for years! Can you tell I’m a huge Estee Lauder Fan? This cleanser foams up lovely and removes all my make up. I don’t feel the need to use a toner with it after either. I just foam it up and rinse and then use a flannel to wash the rest away. This never leaves my skin feeling dry, yet it’s always clean feeling.
Babyliss Cordless Gas Styler
This is a new item added to my kit. I received this for Christmas from the mother who knows me so well! After moaning down the phone about how I take my time to get ready to meet PR’s and you want to look your best yet after the journey and walking through London on a wet or damp day my hair turns to frizz and looks a complete mess! Now it will be a quick visit to the ladies to sort it out with these gas styling tongs. I had these years ago and don’t know why I haven’t thought of them before!
A Good Magnifying Mirror
Boots do good magnifying light up mirrors but when I looked at the one’s TK Maxx had to offer, these were even better! Not nice to look into I might add, but for plucking hairs and doing my eye makeup they are a godsend. You can see even the tiniest lightest of hairs with the one I have and now my eyesight’s not so good it’s a really handy piece of kit. The one I have is x8
Skin Doctor’s Potent Vit. C Day And Night
I’m keeping these two products as one item because they work together so well! I’ve been using these for around a month now and they have made my skin feel like silk. Deeply nourishing for the skin and the potent C signals the skin to promote collagen. So far I have loved using these creams day and night and will be buying again for sure. One little capsule is all you need and there is 50 in each jar
Look Fabulous Forever Face Prime
This was my find of 2017 and I absolutely love it. This primer that I apply to my face before my foundation is an absolute miracle maker. It provides a really good silky smooth base to skin and I’m sure my wrinkles don’t seem so noticeable. If you haven’t tried a base primer before do give this one a try. If you haven’t seen my vlog yet applying this you can find it here showing how to apply a simple day makeup
So there they are. My top thirteen recommended items. I hope you find the info useful and do tell if there is anything you couldn’t live without and recommend in your beauty routine.
