It’s been a while since I’ve shared an update with you all regarding my beauty favourites. What I’ve found most Impressive/helpful and will definitely be on repeat. I get to try so many different products and I like to take my time with them and make sure they do the best job before sharing on to you.
I’m listing ten of my favourites here but I could have added so many more! This post would have gone on forever! But I also thought that if you’re stuck for some gifting ideas there are some lovely items here that will make really good stocking fillers or small gifts.
1 -Joan Collins Eye-Definition Kit
The first being this fantastic eye kit from Joan Collins Timeless Beauty. It’s an all-rounder this little eye compact. Great for brows ( you can see I use the brow setting cream a lot!) You can use this for brows or eyes but what I love about it the most are the tweezers! They are so precise and remove the smallest of hairs. The compact is magnetic too so the tweezers stay safe in the compact. The compact is Gold ( see here) and very cloakroom worthy! I think this would make an ideal gift.
2 -Look Fabulous Forever Hydration Hold Serum
I can’t tell you what a difference this serum from Look Fabulous Forever has made to my skin. They are one of my favourite skin and makeup brands and they have struck gold with this formula.
If I’m indoors without makeup I pat this into my skin a couple of times a day. The heating being on is the worst ” suck your skin in like a prune” enemy and I find this combats that. In the mornings and evenings, I use it before moisturizer and it’s a real booster for hydrating. Full of Hyaluronic Acid, once this bottle is near the end I will definitely be re-ordering.
3 – Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream
Any regular reader will know that I’ve been using this fantastic cream for over 30 years! (Gosh that makes me sound old!) Elizabeth Arden has been selling this for years. A very popular cream to the masses.
I use a little of this cream – it’s like a thick vaseline, on my lips every morning and every night to keep dry lips at bay. I actually left this at home once on a short trip to Essex and within a couple of days, my lips started to skin. I use it on my cuticles too, it’s great for that and I think over the years it’s kept the lip lines at bay. A tube lasts me for around a year, so this is worth every penny.
4 – The Hero Project – Double Blur
I’ve used this magical cream from the Hero Project for some time now. Add this before foundation to hide any skin pigmentation and fill the fine lines with this little miracle worker. I have a broken vein that I’ve had lasered twice but it’s returned and I use this before makeup and it’s a huge help. Read about it and take a look at the reviews! I think this would make a great present for any teenager having to deal with the odd spot too.
5 – Josh Wood Conditioner for hair
I was gifted the shampoo and conditioner by Josh Wood in the summer. I love the smell and I have to say both products are really good. The conditioner is definitely on repeat. This seems to help with the frizziness I find hard to tame on my hair. A good price at £5.00 and would make a great stocking filler. It comes in other hair colour protectants too.
6 – Estee Lauder DayWear Plus
I couldn’t not add my all time favourite! The priciest on the list here but in between trying other brands this is the cream I always return too. I can literally feel my skin suck this cream up every morning like it’s a milkshake! I love the SPF and for me, this just works! Estee Lauder is one of the priciest skincare brands I have on repeat but I always buy at gifting time.
7 – Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation
This was the last item of makeup mum told me to try and I’ve never gone back. After years of using Estee Lauder Double Wear I was amazed at how this vegan great coverage foundation that lasts all day sits on my skin rather than sinks into the wrinkles. Buy this one as a treat to yourself ladies!
8 – Dove Visible Glow
I was introduced to this visible tanner earlier in the year and wouldn’t be without it now. Being fair and using the dark I find the colour is great, not at all orange. It’s the easiest I’ve ever applied and I like the fact that you can use this on your face too. If you would like to see how I apply there is a film linked into this post. A great stocking filler for a mere £7.69
9 – 10 Look Fabulous Forever Primers
I know these three items make it eleven but I just had to add them! My Bring Back Brow Shape is already on repeat. A really fantastic little miracle tube. I use it for the finest line on my lashes to make them look less sparse and if you have sparse brows then this is the remedy for you or a friend.
The Eye Prime is amazing for a mature eye that’s gone a bit pinky ( mine has) this corrects that perfectly before applying shadow and your shadow won’t crease.
The Never Feather Lip Prime has really helped me with the tiny lip lines and seems to keep all my lipsticks in place. Well worth a look at any of these. You may have read my latest skincare review? I’ve also filmed a couple of natural makeup looks.
I hope you find something of interest here. Hand on heart these are my beauty repeats. I love every one of these products
