This week I’m coming at you with something I’ve never done on my blog before, my beauty favourites! With lockdown taking up the majority of the year, I’ve only been following a really basic beauty routine and using my absolute favourites, and I want to share them with the world!
1) Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser
I received this product as a Christmas present in a gift set last year, and oh my gosh, this stuff is amazing. The gift set came with some little muslin cloths and instructions on how to use the product, which I’ve been following, and my skin feels fantastic! I use two pea-sized pumps and use small circular motions to work the product into my skin, leave for two minutes then wash away with warm water. It leaves my skin feeling baby smooth and so much bright! I’ve already repurchased twice, and will definitely be stocking up again!
2) Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Exfoliating Pads
I first bought these pads around four years ago when I was desperately looking for a good exfoliator as I was having problems with my foundation going on patchy as well as the longevity of it too. These did not disappoint. The product comes in the cutest little pot, handy for travel or having in a drawer for easy storage. A pack of 60 is £5, and I find one pad is enough for my whole face, and using every other day means I rarely have to repurchase these. I can’t imagine not using these, and paired with my Hot Cloth Cleanser, my skin feels fantastic, AND you get 20 Boots points when you buy, winner!
3) Kylie Cosmetics Kybrow Eyebrow Powder
Words cannot describe just how much I love this powder. I purchased this in February 2019 and it’s still going strong! The pot comes with two shades: dark brown and light brown. Personally, I prefer the darker powder however I do use the lighter shade if I’m just going for a natural fill as I do have my eyebrows micro bladed also. I usually apply this in the morning, and I can always guarantee they will stay in place until I take them off myself. Sometimes when I’ve shamelessly fallen to sleep with my make up on (usually after a night out) I wake up and they’re still perfect! Once, I even kept them on for the next day too! Embarrassing, I know.
4) Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic
Something I’ve never really used in my skincare routine was a toner, however since I got this product in my Liz Earle gift set, I’ve been hooked. I like to use this after I’ve used my Hot Cloth Cleanser, using a generous amount on a cotton pad and sweeping all over my face. Admittedly, I don’t like the smell, but the way it makes my skin feel afterwards means that the smell is something I’m more than willing to put up with.
5) Benefit Bad Gal Bang Mascara
This mascara has changed my life, no word of a lie. I first tried the mascara around two years ago in a gift set I bought myself, and I’ve not used anything else since. I’m not really a fan of the regular Bad Gal mascara, but this new formula is something else. I have quite short natural eyelashes, and they’re also quite light, so often I look bald in the eyelash department, this mascara, however, makes my lashes EXTREMELY long and EXTREMELY black. I have blue eyes, and this product makes my eyes pop! When using the mascara, I can get away with just mascara and be ready for the day, I love it so much. I’ve used so many mascara products over the years, but I can’t see myself trying anything else any time soon.
I’d love to know your favourites, as I’m always looking to add to my collection – you never know, your suggestion might be the one to lead me astray from my own favourites! Please leave them in the comments!
