6 beauty products you must have!


 My effort levels during the winter are somewhat lacking when it comes to my beauty routine. My makeup usually ends up all over my face from having a cold, and my hair ends up getting ruined from the random downfalls of rain we have pretty much constantly... Although I do wear makeup throughout the winter, spring and summer are where it is at. With festivals on the horizon and the fun colours making their return, I am in my element. I don't blog about beauty as much as I should, so today I am bringing you my favourite products currently. Hopefully, you enjoy this post and let me know in the comments what products are essential to your beauty routine.



The first product to take the spotlight is the Nivea lip balm in soft rose which is only £2.49 and one of the best lip balms I've ever tried and completely budget friendly too. Working in an office with aircon often dries out my lips, but I find it is easily fixed with this lip balm which leaves your lips feeling soft and it also adds a little tint to your lip. Next up is the Airbrush Away Primer from No7 which comes in at £16.50, a little more on the pricer side as in the past I have only bought cheaper ones but haven't found them to do the job, after having my makeup done in Boots and been shown the difference that the primer can make, I knew I needed to have it in my life. It creates a lightweight base for your foundation to glide over and helps to even out any imperfections. A little goes a long way with this primer, so I believe it's worth the investment. My go-to foundation currently is from IT cosmetics and is the Your Skin But Better CC cream*, I fell in love with this CC cream as soon as I tried it, giving a flawless full coverage, covers up my acne more than other CC creams/foundations I have tried and has SPF 50 within, so great for those summer months and the bottle itself is in a tube with a pump which makes it 100 times easier to get the amount you want and to carry around as its not heavy.



I love whacking out the perfumes during the warmer months, and I have to pre-warn you that I am terrible at describing scents, but my two favourites currently are Candy Sugar Pop* from Prada and Dior Poison Girl Unexpected*, both perfumes according to experts fit under the Oriental scent bracket, which I hadn't actually heard of until I looked into these perfumes. Both fragrances are made up of vanilla base notes and smell divine. Poison girl unexpected has a sweet scent and The Perfume Shop advise the scent is "A radically pop inspiration, a sudden, lightning-fast sensation that sends sparkling shivers down the spine and then rounds off with sugary softness." A must-have scent for 2018. Candy Sugar Pop isn't the usual perfume I would be drawn to, as it's more elegant than my usual 'type' described online as "Delicate notes of Peach and Vanilla mingle with airy Apple and Mahonial and shiny top notes of Vert de Bergamote and Green Citrus, comprising an unexpectedly substantial scent story: a sweet first impression cut with an ironic aside, Prada Candy Sugar Pop leaves the room on a high note." Also a perfume you need to add to your collection in 2018. 



The final product I wanted to include in this post has been a firm favourite of mine for a few months now, and I don't imagine it changing. I've had a love-hate battle with dry shampoo for a long time now, growing up Batiste dry shampoo was the one but the relationship ended when I came to the conclusion of how much white residue that it actually leaves behind. After spotting an AD on Insta for Colab I was drawn by the colourful packaging and fell in love with the product on first use, I can feel it actually absorbs the product and makes my hair feel clean for a good 2-3 days and for someone who washes their hair once a day to go that many days, it must be good. Colab has an amazing range of scents and is available from Boots currently at £1.74 (usually £3.49).

  7. These are some great products! I definitely need some type of primer, BB/CC cream , lip balm and mascara, Perfume is usually optional sometimes I forget and walk out the door without any perfume.
