Powder - Physicians Formula - Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Airbrushing Pressed Powder SPF 30

This is a product I cannot live without in spring/summer and traveling abroad. I also use their other high spf powders. I find you need to buy a couple of shades, especially if you contour as there is no truly 'translucent shade.

I can be prone to hyperpigmentation and was backpacking through Belgium 2 years ago and this stopped me getting any at all along with their SPF 50 …

This is another item in my 'cant' live without' category.

This is always in my household and is used an eye cream and a hand cream by me. This cost me £8 and I have had the same bottle for going on 2 years in my nightstand, as that bottle is used solely for my eyes, and there's still loads left. It's better than any pricey eye cream iv'e …

Fragrances - TOM FORD - Neroli Portofino

One of the most stunning things I have ever smelled in my life :)

Packaging is glorious and slick like Mr Ford himself.

The scent is unisex.

But.......it is way too overpriced and thus, this is only something I've ever had as a gift, and I would not buy it again. Especially when I still prefer Farenheight by Dior, which has been my fave for over 20 years.

I will NEVER BE without this now.

I like to alternate a sink cleanse, with a cleanse sitting in bed at night, to keep surprising my skin. Whether i'm cleansing in bed or not, this gets used. My routine is either:

sink wash: Origins cleansing oil, clinique extra mild liquid soap,. Then Simple micellar water boost, cetaphil lotion as an eye cream, and cortas rosewater to …

My favourite thing of all time to tone my skin with. Smells divine and leaves face both clean and soft. I can't be without this item and always have it. I also love their orange blossom water. The item varies hugely in price for me depending on where i buy it from. At the moment I am using amazon, but it's far pricier than most places

Liquid - CLINIQUE - Beyond Perfecting Foundation & Concealer

This is a good, buildable, oil-free foundation.

I have super sensitive skin and if I don;t take every inch of this off thoroughly, it can break me out, in the same way Estee Lauder Double Wear does. I mention this as I know DW breaks out a lot of people due to it's 'no-budge' nature.

This si the foundation I go to at the minute if I want it to last all …

Lotions/ Creams - Aveeno - Daily Moisturising Lotion

Dec/09/2016

Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion is hands down the best body lotion iv'e ever used now. The accompanying body washes are also terrific. In fact, I haven't used anything from Aveeno that I didn't love - I am a total convert, as is everyone in my house.

The hydration my skin feels is unbelievable without being greasy.

If I were to fault the product in any way …

I am 37 years old, and this was the first sel-tanner I tried aged 12. I have tried just about every tanner on the market, from all over the world, and this is still the best iv'e ever used.

My only gripe would have been that in the summer months, it is a little too moisturising, but a while back they brought out a light gel version, which is also fantastic, and the same lovely …

Lotions/ Creams - Boots - baby lotion

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/09/2011

I have used this product for over a decade and my Mother for over 50 years. It is outstanding as a non-oily body lotion or for hotter weather when other lotions seem too sticky. And unlike other baby lotions, this one has no stickiness or tacky residue, it is simply greedily absorbed by your skin.

After showering I apply this before doing my hair n make-up. By the time I come to put …

Mascara - CLINIQUE - High Impact Mascara

Oct/09/2011

This is a lengthening mascara so if you want curl you will need to use curlers. That aside, it is one of the best mascaras that I have ever used and a staple in my kit now. I don't write many product reviews, only really when I think a product is outstanding for performance and cost and this is both.

A curl of my lash curlers and 2 coats of this and I look like i'm wearing …
