Well I feel the time has come again for me to show you what I've been reaching for a lot recently- these are my current favourite, non makeup, products.
Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish
This needs no introduction, as I am one of dozens, if not hundreds of bloggers who love this product. I've found my skin has massively benefitted from this product. I've not used anything more abrasive and it has worked wonders for my complexion. I've nearly finished this bottle and I'll certainly be stocking up once I have.
Palmolive Shower Milk Almond and Milk
I love a bargain and as I get through so much shower gel, this huge bottle 500ml bottle for just £2 makes a lot of sense. It's also really moisturising and smells gorgeous- I love the very subtle almond and milk fragrance. As I've said before, I use shower gel or milk to shave with and this is great for that as it doesn't dry out my legs at all.
Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel
I reviewed this here so I won't repeat myself. I still love it for all the same reasons and that a tube seems to last forever and it leaves me skin feeling very clean but not stripped. I don't go in for many high ends brand when it comes to skincare as I can't afford them, but this is worth every penny.
Mark Hill Gorgeous Brunette Fabulous Finish Hairspray
I had this in a set of miniatures for Christmas and whilst I don't think very much to the shampoo or conditioner, the hairspray is very good. It holds brilliantly, like nothing else I have tried, and although a full size is going to set me back about £5.61 which I consider to be a helluva lot for a hairspray, I will definitely by buying another when this runs out.
Yes to Tomatoes Totally Tranquil Facial Hydrating Lotion
Another product that I've reviewed already but that I've come back to recently. I suppose we just switch up our products to suit what our skin needs and this is certainly doing the trick at the moment. My skin feels very soothed by this moisturiser and it even plumps it up and leaves it looking fresh after I've had a few too many wines ;)
And now onto the makeup and nail products.
DKNY Be Delicious perfume
I was lucky enough to win this from Laura and it's still going strong. The apple fragrance suits warm, sunny weather perfectly so I've worn it a lot recently. And even if the weather hasn't been as sunny as I would have liked recently, at least I've been smelling like summer!
The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Stain Rose Pink 01
Speaking of summer, I love easy to wear products when temperatures rise. There certainly isn't any time to be touching up my makeup when I'm with the kids so a stain works fabulously. This does fade in the centre of my lips after I've eaten but a little touch up at lunch sees me through the rest of the day and it's a gorgeous shade.
Nails Inc miniature nail polishes in The Hurlingham and Candy Street
These shades just scream summer to me and I have worn them to death recently on my finger and toenails. I love Nails Inc minatures, as I find the brushes very easy to use for a miniature and they are also far more easy to hold than the full sizes. I also really like them with Models Own Juicy Jules worn over the top, the shades really suit the multi coloured glitter and also it makes my polish last so much longer than usual. Oh and it's an added bonus that the little girls at school love glitter and are thoroughly entertained by my sparkliness!
Benefit Eye Bright
This is actually the one that came free with Glamour magazine last year and it's been largely untouched until now. I also have a little pan of it in my Sha La Lovely set and it's been a revelation to me. Just a tiny touch in the inner corner of my eye really does make me look bright eyed and bushy tailed when I certainly don't feel that way.
