I thought I would start a new series on my blog going through a lot of the products that I've clearly loved and have finished off. Having a blog that focuses mainly on beauty products means that I'm constantly purchasing and testing out new things to review which does make it hard to completely use up the products I do already have HOWEVER I'm on a bit of a spending ban at the moment so I'm revisiting things I love in the hope that I only purchase AFTER I've finished something off.... 

(Apologies for the long post)

I haven't got a lot of products to show you for this section as I think it would be a little bit boring so I thought I'd just show you the basics that I absolutely LOVE:

Nivea In Shower Body Moisturiser - I've included this in my shower routine b'cos I'm a bloody lazy sod when it comes to getting out the shower freezing ya nips off and having to then stand there and moisturise... NAH, I'd prefer to do it in the shower and this is the perfect cream for it. It makes my body feel silky, smooth and it's a quick solution to hydrate ya bod.

Fudge Violet Toning Shampoo - Everyone constantly asks me how I get my hair the colour it is (silver/grey btw) and it's all down to this product. I bought this when my hair was at it's white stage and I used it so much that it turned my hair lilac which then faded to a grey. Ever since then I've kept it like that and I use this either every time I wash my hair to get to the colour I want and then whenever the colour starts to fade. I live by this product and it lasts me ages too as a little does go a long way. I also use it to wash the dye out of my hair as it helps keeps the brassiness at bay. (If you want me to do a blogpost on how I dye my hair then let me know in the comments).

I haven't run out of a lot of skincare products just yet because I seem to try things then buy new things to test because I'm a relatively newbie when it comes to this side of things.

Superdrug Naturally Radiant 2 in 1 Moisturiser and Serum - This is such a good product. I've seen that everyone has been raving about the superdrug own skincare range and I can see why. This was such a lightweight yet definitely hydrating moisturiser which I used everyday in the morning and it instantly made my skin felt refreshed and ready for the day. 

Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment (Sample Size) - This was such a great sample that I received from Glamglow. Me and my boyfriend got a few uses out of this and the results were AMAZING however it did cause a little sting to the face so I personally think the product was a little too harsh which is why I won't be forking out for the full size. If you have less sensitive skin than me then I would definitely recommend this product.

Glamglow Volcasmic Matte Glow Moisturiser (Sample Size) - What do you think is the best thing about a moisturiser? The fact it is very hydrating and helps to keep oils at bay OR the fact it smells like Terrys Chocolate Orange which is my fave all time chocolate....need I say more?

Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe Vera, Cucumber and Green Tea - This line of products have such amazing reviews so I'll keep it short n sweet. I love the spray, it is so refreshing on your face. I don't use it as a setting spray unless it's the only thing I've travelled with however I do use it just before applying my make up to instantly prep my skin. I've already got a back up of this as I don't think I could be without this product now. It's a staple into my routine!

Make Up

Freedom Pro Studio Fixing Spray - This is one of my fave setting sprays. I actually purchased this after I saw that a MUA used it when she done my make up so I know it's a staple in some peoples kit. It's only £5 for a bottle and it helps to blend your make up by getting rid of that excess powder but it also helps with the longevity of your make up. It doesn't drench your face either as it does actually squirt out a lovely lil mist. 

Nyx Dewy Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray - This was my first ever setting spray that I ever purchased. It gives a nice dewy finish and is also a drugstore setting spray that helps to set your make up. I want to try the matte version as I've heard that's good too!

Mac Studio Fix Fluid Foundation (NW13) - Yep I'm a pale g. This is my holy grail foundation as it's the only one that I use on a daily basis that is right for my skin. It's medium coverage which is easily buildable, doesn't cling to my dry patches but doesn't make me an oily mess. It lasts a while with the right powders and setting sprays. I've yet to find a better match for me so I will always have back ups of this!

NYX Pore Filler Primer - I'm upset that I've run out of this. I used it for time then had a break and now back to using it again until I ran out. It does what it says, it really fills out your pores and helps with the blurring of them. It's not a primer that just slides off your face either and I would say its a pretty good dupe for the Benefit Porefessional.

L'Oreal Paradise Mascara - You've probably already seen me rave about this on my Insta but name me a better mascara please??? Since I've started using this, I've repurchased it several times because it is just so good. I usually use two mascaras at once because I can never find one product that extends and thickens my lashes - until I bought this!

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer (Fair 1) - I've gone back to this concealer a lot recently and have remembered why I love it so much. I use Fair and it's perfect for brightening my under eye even without foundation. It doesn't crease and it helps with hiding my imperfections. I really rate this concealer as it's one of my faves.

Make Up Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer (Shade C3)- I was so pumped when I purchased this bearing in mind I've never tried Tarte Shape Tape but everyone was saying it was a dupe. It's a full coverage concealer that is under a fiver which I think is absolutely amazing however the product doesn't last long so I would buy a couple! I love the packaging and I love the applicator because it makes it easy to apply the product quickly. Only issue is that it does crease under the eye so as soon as you apply it, make sure you set it with powder.

Sorry for the long post people but I hope you enjoyed it. I've tagged all the products in the headers and it will be a few months until we do part 2. As always, thank you for reading...

  2. These things sound really good. I'll have to check out a couple of these products.

  3. I haven't tried Superdrugs naturally radiant range yet, I've only tried their vitamin E one which is my favourite. Makeup revolution concealer is my fave!!
