Here are 10 products I cannot live without!
(Well I could live without them, but life just wouldn’t be the same…)
Most of the items listed I’ve been using for a long time that I repurchase over and over.
Lots of people have never even heard of Castor Oil. It literally is just 100% natural oil, it’s very similar to Argon Oil but it’s a little thicker. I regularly use it on my eyebrows and eyelashes before bed, it helps protect and condition them and makes mine a lot thicker and grow a lot quicker. I have used it on my hair but, I personally prefer Argon Oil as it does take a few washes for the Castor Oil to subside.
This probably seems like a bit of a weird one. I love fresh air and love to keep my bedroom windows open all year round. I do use this much more in the Summer due to it being the season of insects however, I do find myself using it all year round- mostly for my piece of mind!
MAC Studio Fix Fluid.
Although I do not use this foundation on a day-to-day basis, I definitely like to know it’s always in my make-up draw. I usually use it when I go for a heavier make-up look, when I am going on a night out, when I want more coverage or to look a little more dewy.
Dry Shampoo- Brunette.
Dry Shampoo is my best friend on mornings when I am looking for a quick hair fix. I have written before how I don’t like to wash my hair too often and this is a great product I like to use when I want to stick it out that extra day.
Revolution- Girls On Film Eye Shadow Palette.
I was honestly so shocked when I tried this eye shadow. I actually got it as a gift and was so surprised when I played around with it. There is a mixture of shimmers and mattes and they are all really pigmented and true to colour. Not to mention how cheap the palette is!
Simple- Kind to Skin Facial Wash.
When washing my face I like to stick to products as natural as possible.
I’m lucky I haven’t got sensitive skin, but I use quite strong perfumed moisturisers so when washing my face, the more simple the product, the more cleaner I feel my face is.
This is a great high-street product that does what it says!
O.P.I Nail Polish.
For me O.P.I are just the Royals of nail polishes. I’ve tried a lot of and I think these are the only brand that does not chip in the first 2 days of wearing it. The colours are beautiful and they look great.
Facial Waxing Strips.
I’ve always got some waxing strips tucked away in my beauty draw. I wax my eyebrows every 2-3 months to get rid of the stray hairs. Personally waxing is my favourite method of brow tidying. I hated threading and plucking scares me as I used to over pluck (back in the days I’d wear the wrong colour foundation.)
TRESemmé Heat Defence Styling Spray.
It’s so so important to protect your hair from heat. I try to let my hair dry naturally as much a possible and I limit myself when using heat. I’ve been using this product for a few years now, every time I use heat I lightly spray this over my hair and if I forget to use it, I really do notice the difference.
Dove DermaSpa Summer Revived.
/Dove Summer Glow.
This has to be my favourite product from this whole post.
I have been using this product for at least 5 years and love it. I was a little confused when I went to pick some more up. At first, I thought it had been replaced by this but, I’ve seen the Summer Glow is still available. The smell, colour, consistency, result is exactly the same so I’m not too sure why they’ve released this one! It is a tinted moisturiser/gradual tan. I usually use it on my face and have tried so many other moisturisers and tanners but, nothing beats this. I apply a light layer most nights before sleep and leaves me with a really subtle glow after a few hours. I don’t wear fake tan that often anymore and I would actually prefer if this product didn’t contain a tanner. But, there isn’t an equivalent so I use this is my night moisturiser. I have tried so so so many different facial moisturisers (high-street and high-end) but, my skin doesn’t like any of them as much as it likes this. It works so well with my skin, and leaves it soft and revitalised.
