I am looking at trying some new beauty products soon and I thought I would post about some of my favourites that I use time and time again just to start me off.
So the first would be a blog classic I guess, the Liz Earle hot cloth cleanser, instant boost tonic and skin repair moisturiser. I know alot of people have blogged about this and there is a reason for this, because it is amazing. I have combination skin and so sometimes it can get too dry and other times too oily. This product, the three combined, works so well for me. I hardly get any spots, I got complimented on how youthful and fresh my skin looked about a week after using it day and night and it makes my skin feel so silky and smooth. It has a lovely soft floral scent to it which I love but there might be some of you who prefer unscented products so maybe go and try a sample first.
I have been using it for just over a year as my main go to on a daily basis and I find it hard to try anything else because I love it so much. I will be trying others soon though as I feel I should give other brands a chance.
I am big on eyeliner and especially the cat eye flick, when I was in school and couldnt afford to buy more expensive make up and not very often I would always use the classic rimmel jet black kohl. These days I use the liner pens which I find more dramatic and easier to use too.
The MAC liner pen is probably the best one I have found so far, I first bought it as the limited edition wonder woman pen which was around £15.00, then when that one had run dry I tried the cheaper Barry M wink liner pen which is a much cheaper price of £4.59.
That one does the job and is a good alternative, however at the time when I was using it I went to Ibiza and found that it melted on my eye. It is very runny in comparison, doesnt dry as fast and generally doesnt last as long. Recently I discovered a better cheap alternative to the MAC penultimate liner and that is the Soap and glory liner pen. It drys just as fast as MAC and also lasts all day. I still buy the MAC one every now and again when I can afford to splash out more but for everyday use inbetween I now use the Soap and Glory supercat one, which works just as well. You can get the Supercat liner from most boots stores at £6.00.
I will post some more of my favs soon!
