As it’s been a little while since I properly sat down and typed up a blog post, I thought i’d ease myself back with a quick and simple post but one that always goes down well with you guys. I thought i’d talk about some products that have become my go to essentials over the past few weeks and also talk about a few products that you don’t usually hear all that much about.
The past few weeks have definitely taken their toll on me and I haven’t really been taking that much care of myself when it comes to the beauty side of things, I just don’t have the patience for it all at the moment but I have found myself reaching for the same products for a few weeks now and some i’ve been quite surprised with.
Starting the makeup side of things and I haven’t really been making that much of an effort with my makeup, I can’t remember that last time I wore eyeliner but these few products have been life savers. The Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer (£5.49) has been an absolute gem at just making me look so much more awake in the mornings. A quick sweep under the eyes, a little blending and i’m good to go. The Maybelline 24-hour False Lash Effect (£11.99) is a product that I initially hated because it was such a pain to remove but it’s actually come in really handy as it has survived many tears over the past few weeks, and i’ve found a good oil cleanser removes it pretty easily. Lastly for makeup is the Topshop ‘Morning Dew’ Cream Blush (£7), which i’ve been turning to just to add a little colour back into my complexion and to make me look less washed out. I would highly recommend the Topshop cream blushers, they are my favourite.
Onto the more skincare/body products that i’ve been turning to recently, mainly for fighting the dry skin as this weather is drying my skin quite a bit still. The Dr Paw Paw Original Balm* (£6.95) is a product that i’d wanted to try for ages, but I never knew where to get my hands on it, so when this little sample arrived through my letter box I was quite excited. It is like no other balm that i’ve used, it’s really heavy duty and it’s also multi purpose which is great. I’ve been using this on my lips as I always have dry lips and i’ve really started to notice how much better they have been since using this, highly recommend! Lastly is a product i’d wanted to try for ages and I finally picked up a bottle a few days ago, and already I love it! The Vaseline Spray & Go Cocoa Radiant Body Moisturiser (£4.99) is like no other that i’ve used. I don’t usually use body moisturisers because they take forever to soak in and I just don’t have time for that, but this sinks in almost instantly. It’s so light on the skin, but still provides the moisture that your skin needs and it smells incredible!
So those are a few products that i’ve been using quite a lot of recently!
