Products I Couldn't Live Without: March
The beauty products that are so good I don’t know where I’d be without them.
I try a lot of beauty products, some I love and some are extremely forgettable, because of the quantity of products I try it’s always hard to find things that really stick out and stay with me for the long-term. Today I’ll be talking about four products that have done just that, potentially even receiving the much-coveted ‘holy grail’ status…
Garnier Sheet Masks
I love sheet masks, they are the perfect skincare treat for a lazy Sunday evening and Garnier’s range in particular are among my favourites. They are fantastic value for money coming in at £3 (but they’re always on sale somewhere, so normally under £2). They aren’t dripping with product so you don’t have to worry about them sliding all over your face, and leave your skin feeling amazing afterwards. My personal favourites are the Green Tea and the Sakura Masks, both amazing if you have dry skin that could do with a little extra brightness.
Essie Nail Polish - Ballet Slippers
When it comes to nail polish I can be pretty boring, it’s pretty much 50 shades of nude-pink on my nails at all times, I just find this colour to be the most flattering and elegant on the nails. The best nail polish in this category by far is Essie’s Ballet Slippers. Now I know you probably have all heard about this shade, and I hope that if you still haven’t gotten around to trying it that this is the final push you needed to go out and get it because it is seriously worth it - this is my third bottle of the stuff. If you want a really sheer wash of colour then you could totally get away with just one coat, but I always like to go in with three just to make it more opaque and shiny.
Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm
I would go as far as saying that the Nuxe Reve de Miel lip balm is probably the most talked-about product on this blog, I even dedicated a whole post to how it saved my dry lips, it’s seriously just the best lip balm on the market for those who want intense moisture. Firstly, it smells just like a Terry’s Chocolate Orange which doesn’t hurt, and secondly (and probably most importantly) it is my go-to whenever my lips are super dry and it sorts them out straight away; a generous coat of this overnight and I’ll wake up with perfectly smooth lips. Yes it’s a bit more pricey than your usual lip balm but, trust me, it’s worth the extra pennies.
Glossier Boy Brow
It almost pains me to admit how much I love Boy Brow, mainly because I wish I could say there is nothing special about it, and that it’s just the same as all of the other brow gels on the market. The problem is that it just really isn’t, nothing else makes my eyebrows look as full and groomed like this does, which is down to its thicker waxy consistency. I can easily just use this on my brows and feel completely put together, it’s just fantastic.
