Current Favourites






I don't do favourites that often, I don't know why, but I have some here for you today - some have been favourites for a while and some are new additions that I'm loving. 

Serozinc - I've been using this for over a month and I really like it. It's not a product where you see a dramatic difference in your skin but one I know is doing some good. It's a zinc bases product which acts as an antibacterial spray, calming and soothing any irritation and great for spot prone skin. I've also tried it on my little boy as it can be used as a nappy rash treatment. He had a rash on he's face so I sprayed this onto a cotton pad and wiped it over, the next morning the rash had almost disappeared. Yet anther reason it love this!

Nars Sheer Glow - A very recent addition and a foundation I have fallen for. The finish isn't so much glowy (as the name suggest) but more of a mixture between dewy and matte. It gives a slight radiance just making the skin look healthy. The coverage is medium but I think you could build it up more if needed.

Mac Prep and Prime Highlighting Pen - I'm a bit late to the party on this and have been loving it ever since I got it back in December. It really brightens up the under eyes making you look more awake and perfect for Kim Kardasian contoured look.

Aromatherapy Associates Bath Oils - I was very sceptical when I first tried these thinking how good could a bath oil be? But I have to say my bathtime is not complete unless I'm using them. I don't have a favourite scent, they're all very spa like and the smell lingers for ages. I don't think I'd buy a large bottle as it's rather expensive, bet repurchase miniatures again, their perfect as you only need a tiny bit and they last ages!

Charles Worthington Volume and Bounce Texturising Spray - I only bought this the other week after hearing it was a dupe for the Oribe Dry Texture Spray. Since having my hair extensions out I  have been loving my natural locks and the fact I can now use all these wonderful products in it without the worry that the extensions will ruin. The spray, used with my next favourite is perfect for achieving volume and movement to the hair. The spray is weightless and doesn't leave any powdery residue but adds a slight thickness and hold to the roots, ..smells nice as well.

Babyliss Root Boost - I've had this for as long as I can remember. It's the cheats way of adding body and volume to your hair without the need to blow dry or set it. This combined with the texturising spray are the perfect team and complement each other beautifully adding body and texture effortlessly.

Maybelline Gel Eyeliner in Brown - I'm new to gel eyeliner normally sticking to liquid but I bought this as a dupe for the Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade. I really want to try it but my colour is out of stock and there's a waiting list, ever the impatient person that I am I wanted to see if I would like the concept and thought that a gel eyeliner would give me an idea of how it would look and work. It works really well and lasts near enough all day without smudging. It does give a very defined brow and of course the colour is darker then I would normally wear, but I really like it. I'll still be buying the Anastasia Dip Brow but this will keep me going till then.

Random Favourite - Baby Muslin Cloths. I was going through my son old baby clothes and came across loads of muslin cloths that had never used, it got me thinking....What's the difference between these and the ones which are sold by the likes of Liz Earl or Emma Hardie?... Nothing, they're designed for babies so they're super soft and do the job of removing my cleanser just as well and at a fraction of the price!..Bargain!

What are your current favourites? Leave me a comment below, I'm always on the hunt for new products to try!

  4. Like the sound of the Aromatherapy oils, I used to be skeptical too, but having tried a few, they do work and are relaxing.
