I can’t even remember the last time I did a beauty favourite! I believe my last one was nearly two years ago, so it really has been a hot minute. However, recently there has been a fair few new products that have caught my attention. Especially when it comes to skincare, I’ve been try out a lot of different products which have been working pretty well for me. I thought a beauty favourites post was well overdue and to be honest, I just wanted to rave about these products!
Throughout the beauty world, The Ordinary has become a cult favourite. It’s affordable and the products are apparently amazing. The Ordinary Silicone Primer is the first and only product that I’ve tried from them. I think this was around £4 from ASOS and it’s one of the best Primers I’ve ever used. It leaves your skin super smooth and sometimes I even just put this on without applying make-up afterwards. You do get through the product quite quickly but for £4 you really can’t go wrong. I do want to try more from The Ordinary so do leave your recommendations in the comments.
The Vitamin C Liquid Peel came highly recommended from a few of my friends so I knew I had to give it a go. This gel-like product literally peels away any dead skin from your face and leaves you with a glowing complexion. If you consistently use this product, you only need to do a peel every week or so. It’s a really effective product and it’s helped with dry skin around the nose for sure!
I’m a massive fan of Jamie Genevieve so I had to check out her tanning collaboration with utan. The tanning water is to be used on the face and although the bottle says you can use it before make-up or as a primer – I spray it before bed after my skincare routine. I’ve found that this spray applies really well and I wake up with an even glow to my face. The tan can be buildable if you use it quite frequently. It’s become a staple in my tanning routine as it’s just so easy to use!
The BOSS Orange Fragrance by Hugo Boss* has become literally the only perfume I have been using since I got it in August. I’m pretty sure this fragrance was released ages ago but I’ve only just discovered it through a friend. It’s not the usual fragrance I would go for which is why I think I like having something a little different. The scent has notes of orange blossom, vanilla and sandalwood.
One of the brands I’ve been trying lot’s of different products from is Pixi. They have sent me a couple of very generous press parcels full of skincare and beauty goodies. I’m going to do a more in-depth post of which products I really rate. For now, one of the stand out product is the DetoxifEYE Depuffing Eye Patches*, they are so cooling and just great to pop under your eyes after a long day. They work amazing if you pop them in the fridge to let them cool even more. You get 30 patches in a pot so they can last you quite a long time too.
