Hi guys! Hope you are all having a lovely week, I am counting down the hours till this weekend as we are finally off on our family holiday.
I decided to do another 10 top favourite beauty product post. Recently I started using some new products, falling in love with some old favourites and simply going back to ones I have forgotten about. I took my time with them just to make sure I had a proper opinion on everything before I recommend them to anyone else. All items linked below if you would like to shop direct from this post.
1: Lancôme Bi-Facil Cleanser- This product is an oldie but a goodie, I used it a couple of years ago and only recently was kindly gifted it in a goodie bag so I started using it again and I remembered why I loved it so much before. Its gentle on your skin, removes eye make up very easily and leaves skin very soft. It's suitable for sensitive eyes which for me is a huge bonus. buy here
2: Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation - I love this foundation, it gives you a brighter, poreless, flawless looking skin with a nice glow. It has 8 shades to choose from and when applied very lightly, looks so natural on your skin. Has SPF 20 with vitamin C and radiance pearls. I'm all about nice smelling products and this foundation smells amazing too. I always get asked what I'm using any time I wear this and for under 12 euro, it's the perfect beauty steal. buy here
3: Vichy Slow Age Fluid Moisturiser - I LOVE this! It smells divine, gives you a gorgeous glow, makes your skin soft and plump. I don't know why it took me so long to try it and I cant live without it now. I would highly recommend it. It's for all skin types with SPF and is clinically proven to slow down the appearance of ageing signs. buy here
4: Colgate optic toothpaste - Ok so this is not really a beauty product but I started using this a couple of months ago and I find it extremely good. For €5/€6, it's the perfect whitening toothpaste and definitely works on getting your teeth pearly white (beware of the bright blue colour but I think thats what makes it good). I use it with this mouth wash and find the two together are a match made in teeth whitening heaven. buy here
5: Loreal Pure Clay Mask - This face mask is by far my favourite one. It does exactly what it says on the tin, smells really nice and is really affordable. They also have another two different types for other skin concerns and you can use all three at the same time on certain parts of your face and mask it your way. buy here
6: Maybelline Fit Me Foundation - This Matte drug store foundation is almost a dupe for Mac Pro Long Wear Waterproof Foundation, if not a little bit better (not as drying). It comes in 18 different shades to match almost everyone's skin tone. Its oil free and doesn't clog your pores. I seem to reach for this on a daily basis especially now while the weather is hot and humid. buy here
7: Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade - I'm a huge fan of this brand especially for eyebrows and this pomade is brilliant. I use the shade 'Taupe' which is perfect with my bright blonde hair. This small pot lasts forever as you only need a tiny bit of product every time you use it. It's definitely one of my favourite eyebrow products I have ever used.
8: Ted Baker Body Spray - For any one that knows me, they know how in love I am with this brand and that extends to their beauty products too. Everything they make is pure perfection in my eyes. These small body sprays smell amazing and are perfect to throw into your handbag for a touch up throughout the day instead of carrying big bottles of perfume (that might not fit into your bag). They are pretty good for the price you pay and the smell lasts a really long time. I use these all the time and sometimes even instead of my perfume.

9: Heliocare Factor 50 - I love the sun and I can sunbathe from sunrise to sunset on holidays but at the same time I know how important it is to take care of your skin and protect it from the sun. I never really tan my face as I try to wear a hat and a high factor if I am out in the sun and this one is such a good find. Most of the ones that I used before still make me burn, especially on my nose but this one is definitely a firm winner. buy here
10: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream - I am not a huge fan of Matte lipsticks as I find they dry up your lips and to be honest, my lips are on the dryer side as it is so I don't need my lipstick doing it too. These soft lip creams are pretty good, yes they are matte but not that drying, lasts ages and have so many nice shades to choose from that I am slowly being sold on the matte lips trend. These two are my favourite shades at the moment 'Antwerp' and 'Athens'. buy here
I hope you enjoyed this post.
