5 Beauty Products That I Absolutely Swear By

Wednesday, February 03, 2016


There's not a lot of beauty products that I can put my hands down and say y'know what these bad boys are good, but when I find something that I absolutely love, I just have to tell the whole world about it. And that's what I'm gonna do now - kinda.

The following 5 beauty products (makeup, skincare and fake tan - yup, there's something for everyone) are products that I basically cannot live without, they're my holy grail products. They're the kind of products that send you into a psycho frenzy when you've realised you're about to run out of them. You know the ones, yeah?

Anyway, here are my top 5 beauty products that I absolutely swear by.

1. Arbonne Deep Pore Blemish Cleanser



The first one deserves a massive shoutout to my friend Jen who got me interested hooked on this bad boy. I've always been a firm lover of Liz Earle's Hot Cloth Cleanse & Polish Cleanser, I've religiously used it morning and evening for the past few years and when I go without using it I can actually start to tell a difference, and that my friends is when you know something's a good'en. But this cleanser unexpectedly flew into my life and knocked Liz Earle's Cleanser straight off my shelf (sorry Lizzie). This cleanser is actually unreal. Like actually unreal. Like amazing. Like words cannot describe it and to top it off there's nothing nasty in it. Nothing but pure botanical extracts and all the good bits - and of course all the sciencey stuff behind it.

It's such a gentle product but gets the job done and feels so damn good. The salicylic acid in it helps reduce the number of blemishes by removing excess oil and exfoliating away dead skin cells and making your skin look more even toned - aka perfection in a bottle.

Now I'm hooked on this Arbonne life saver, I can't imagine not using it again. After just 2 weeks of incorporating it into my daily skincare routine my skin has already started to improve drastically and it's all down to this bad boy.

Thanks Jen!


2. YSL Touche Eclat in Shade 2



I've mentioned this cult product before and expressed my undying love for it ever since I got hold of it (you can read about it here) and still to this day I swear by it. Now that the novelty aspect of the clicky pen has (finally) worn off, I can really appreciate the product itself and how fab it really is. Not just for concealing undereyes, it also brightens dull areas and can be used as a highlight - how versatile?! 

Defo recommned snapping up this clicky golden piece of wonder at your nearest YSL counter.

C'mon it's iconic, how could you not?!

You can get it here.

3. Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade in Ash Brown


Ohhhhh Myyyyy Goddddddd. 

This.

This has revolutionised my brows. It's completely blown my Naked palette I used to use on my eyebrows completely out of the water. This is a game changer. 

I was lucky enough to find this in my stocking at Christmas (thanks Santa you babe) and have used it every day since. If you've never tried it before (ummm what are you doing?!) then seriously get it. If you're brows are looking dire and need some fleeky-ness, this is your answer. The shade Ash Brown is perfect for my dark brown eyebrows and it comes in so many different shades warm and cool that you'll bound to find one that's perfect for you.

You can get it here on Cult Beauty for only £15.

4. St Moriz Fake Tan Mousse in Medium


Okay, if you know me you'll know how obsessed I am with fake tan. I'm a self confessed fake tan-o-holic, I just love the stuff. I mean c'mon, there's nothing wrong with wanting to look like a bronze goddess who's just hopped off the plane from a 4 week vay-cay in the Maldives now is there?! Lol I wish. There really isn't anything wrong with giving your complexion a bit of a boost especially this time of the year when the sun is practically non-existent. 

My go-to fake tan is probably one of the cheapest ones on the market and one you've probably all tried. By no means is it the best fake tan in the world (I'm still yet to find that) but it's a tan that can take you from pale to looking like a different ethnicity and that's the kinda tan I like. St Moriz only works well if you wash it off, exfoliate and moisturise on a daily basis otherwise it can leave you looking like you have rare skin disease - and that ain't pretty. I swear by this stuff if you have the time to complete a full body care routine because it can leave you looking like a bronzed goddess.

5. Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Colour Lip Liner in Bare



Forget MAC's Whirl or Spice, this is 10x better. This bad boy from Elizabeth Arden is the creamiest and most easy to apply nude lip liner that I've ever found. No sharpening needed. No breaking nibs. And no having to reapply every 2 seconds. It goes perfectly with MAC's Velvet Teddy and can withstand anything that comes into contact with it. It leaves your lips feeling smooth and soft and doesn't give you that awful crispy, dry look that most other lip liners do.

By far the best nude lip liner I've found.

You can buy it here.

And that's it!

There you have my 5 beauty products that I absolutely swear by.

What are your faves?
