The products above are some of my go-to products that I always have in my beauty cabinet. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum and Lancome Bi-Facil Eye Make-up Remover are two which I have been using for so many years and keep repurchasing. Clinique Take The Day Off Make-up Remover is also great for removing eye make-up. Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen is a relatively new discovery and I have just repurchased the larger size. I love that as well as providing SPF 40, it has protection from blue light and increases hydration levels. It is also cruelty-free, vegan, gluten-free, reef-safe and doesn’t contain oxybenzone.
I’ve rounded up a few new favourites below that I have discovered lately in skincare, haircare and make-up as well as a couple of things that I’ve have been loving recently. I hope that you all get something that you are excited about, I know that things have been selling out but products are coming back in stock so keep checking or add yourself to the email reminder option.
I have been using all three masks in rotation over the last year and go through phases where each is a favourite, currently it’s the R + R mask. I have just ordered the CC Me Vitamin C Serum and have heard great things about the Super Amino Gel Cleanser and the Lip Butter Balm.
There are a plethora of accessories in my collection that I would rebuy in a heartbeat and the Sephora sale is a great time to pick up these items. I love my Slip pillowcase for its skin and hair benefits and I own a couple so that I can rotate them out when the other is being washed. I just bought the slip silk scrunchies as I found that the invisbobble can sometimes feel too tight, something you don’t get with silk .
I didn’t realise how much I loved the Aquis turban until my last trip home. Being without it, I realised how much I missed it. I always leave my hair to air dry and this speeds up the process as well as helps to reduce frizz and breakage.
I started using the Olaplex brand last year and I am officially a convert! I had heard so much about The Hair Perfector No. 3, which is a concentrated treatment that addresses damaged hair and it’s my favourite out of the range. It reduces breakage, strengthens hair from within and restores its healthy appearance and texture. I’ve just bought the larger size in the sale.
I also have the Shampoo No. 4, Conditioner No. 5 and Bond Smoother No. 6 and when I’m next buying hair oil I’m going to try the No. 7 Bonding Oil as so far I’ve liked all the products that I’ve tried of theirs. Plus all their products are paraben free, sulfate free and phthalate free.
I haven't been wearing any base make-up of late but I still love a little eye make up and a slick of something on my lips. The two palettes I've had on rotation is this one by Tarte and this one by Urban Decay and really like them both. I've also heard great things about all the Charlotte Tilbury eye shadows. When I'm heading out of an evening (which obviously hasn't been for a while), I like to swipe an eye shadow stick over my lids for a quick pop of colour. The Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks are great as they are pigmented and long lasting and come in a range of colours.
Since using Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask and a lip balm a few times a day, I've really noticed an improvement in the condition of my lips. During the day I rely on something heavy duty when I'm at home (usually Elizabeth 8 hour cream or Lanolips) and I keep a tinted option in my handbag. My favourites are the Dior Lip Glow, Fresh Sugar Lip Balm and YSL Lipstick Balm.
