I haven’t mentioned my top 5 products for a quite some time and thought it was about time I posted an updated one for you. I have been really boring with my beauty for the last 6 months, to be honest. I’ve been trying to be a good girl and use up all my makeup I already have before buying new. During the Christmas Holidays, I took to my beauty draws and had a total clear out. It was just ridiculous the amount of stuff I had and never used. I gave a load to friends & Family and the rest I have been either selling on Depop (Check out my shop page) or sent to charity. I did rediscover some gems though.
I have had this a few years now, I had completely forgotten about it until the ‘clear out’. Once I had given it a sniff I popped it straight into my makeup bag and I have been using it every day. Its light, fresh and clean and perfect for everyday wear and evening wear too. This and the Wood Sage & sea salt are still my favourite Jo Malone Scents. They are a little pricey but a little goes a long way and people still comment on my perfume hours after I have applied it.
This is my go-to facial oil. If my skin is looking, let’s not beat around the bush, Shit! I always turn to this oil. If I have had a few breakouts and am now left with slight redness or irritation this oil seems to fix it. I have also taken this on holiday with me and use it on the ends of freshly washed damp hair to stop it from drying out with the sun. I am on my 2nd or 3rd bottle of this Pai Oil and I think ill be making another repurchase soon. I like to use it alongside Differin Gel and also the Institute Esthederm AHA Peel which I’m going to mention next. If you apply 2-3 drops in the evening then the skin will feel and look pretty damn amazing in the morning.
I’m not going to go on too much about this product because I have written a full review (HERE). I was sent this product quite a few months ago now and I didn’t really have any expectations but it has quickly been added to my skincare routine. I really like this concentrated serum for use in the evening giving me smooth even skin by the morning, I think its pretty fab.
This is one of those products that is just great to have in your bag on a daily basis. I mainly use it for my lips, Applying it every morning and evening and about 3 million times during the day. I have pretty much given up wearing lipstick. Its too high maintenance for me. I just like to whack a load of this Eight-hour cream on for a super hydrating glossy lip 24/7. I have this 50ml tube and I also have a mini tube too for keeping in my coat pocket for cold wintery dog walks. I also use this cream on my nails and cuticles and super dry bits of skin I very occasionally get.
I have been a huge fan of the Bobbi Brown Medium Bronzer but last month I had to say goodbye to my favourite bronzer. I had totally hit pan and it eventually gave up and crumbled into a billion pieces leaving me no choice other than to bin it! I fancied giving another product a try so I bought the Bare Minerals Invisible bronzer in the shade medium. So far I have been pretty impressed with it, It gives a really lovely sunkissed glow to the skin and really warms the face up which my pale face really needs at the moment, Gosh, I need some tan on my face or just a little sun. Im seriously lacking in the Vitamin D department!
Do you have any top products this month you seem to be grabbing each week?
