Favourite Beauty Products...Sunday, May 22, 2011
Hope you are all having a lovely Sunday so far, I can't quite decide if it's nice enough to sit outside as it looks quite windy and the sun keeps appearing and then disappearing!
Now I always love seeing a 'Favourites' post pop up on my dashboard, I'm a nosey parker and love see what my favourite beauty bloggers use every day. I realised that as much as I love these posts, I never seem to actually post them myself. So I decided that needed to change!
I've got a few things to show you so it'll be spread over the week as I don't want to bombard you with one massive blog post with about 20 pictures!
Today I am going to start with my favourite beauty products- these are the products that I reach for most days or are my absolute favourites.
Okay so I'll go from left to right-
Now I used to associate this with pregnant women who used it on their stretchmarks but this is so much more than that! I was first introduced to this when last year I developed some scarring on my back from acne. They were like brown marks and they really annoyed me and I felt very self conscious of them in a bikini. My Mum suggested I use bio oil on the marks and within two weeks they had completely disappeared! I recently bought a new bottle as I've got some marks on my face from acne- oh the joys eh so I'm trying it on my face for that, but only a little bit as oil can be clogging. It also feels lovely on the skin and is good for really, really dry skin.
Johnson's Oil balancing facial cleansing wipes
These are my favourite make up wipes, yes I'm one of the lazy people who only uses face wipes! Usually once/twice a week or whenever I feel like it, I will use a toner and take a little more time removing my make up but to be honest I haven't found a cleansing system that I actually like so that's probably why I don't use one. These wipes are great, they remove eye makeup and are oil balancing which is great for oily skin like mine. All Johnsons products are on offer at Superdrug at the moment, 2 products for £3.99 which then the wipes are like £3.50 each is a bargain!
I have indeed done a post about this before and as you can see from the picture, my tube has been used rather a lot! I need some more but keep forgetting whenever I'm in town! I used this mostly for spots and it really does work. Most nights I slather it all over my face which prompts my boyfriend to say " why so serious?" As apparently I look like ' The Joker' from Batman. Funny guy eh!
Body Shop Coconut Body Butter
This is my all time favourite body moisturiser. If I were only able to buy one moisturiser for the rest of my life this would be it. Everything is great about it, the smell is divine and just screams HOLIDAYS! It moisturisers deeply and is fab for making a tan last. It is quite pricey as it's like £12.00 ish for a tub so it's a more of a treat and I ration myself with it! But with me having a birthday next month hopefully I'll get a new one ;)
Marc Jacobs Lola
I realised that I've never really spoke about perfume on here before! This is my favourite perfume at the moment, I love the smell, the bottle just everything! My other favourite perfumes which I alternate sometimes are Emporio Armani s Diamonds and Diesel Fuel For Life. This is the fave at the moment!
Well there we go! I have also got a make up favourites post too which I'll probably put up within the next couple of days!
Hope you all have a lovely Sunday afternoon/evening :)
