Hello, sweethearts… first of all I would like to apologise for the radio silence, however the past 3 weeks have been hectic for me as I’ve moved home and been really busy at work. For a fresh start I would like to let you know about some of my favourite beauty products at the moment. The ones I am sharing with you today will hopefully make you curious or for those of you who are using them already, you may want to share your experience of using them and any other thoughts.
To start with, the Body Shop’s radiant oil and bubbling bath from their new Wild Argan Oil range are two products that make me happy whenever I use them. The scent is really relaxing, plus the rich bubbles last forever. When it comes to the radiant oil, I mostly use it on my skin as it absorbs really well and leaves my skin smooth. This can also be used on hair, however you need to be careful of the amount you use as it may leave your hair look greasy. I prefer to only use it on the ends of my hair. Also, I don’t have a photo of the hand cream I’ve absolutely fallen in love with recently, but you can find it here. The Body Shop’s coconut hand cream is brilliant and I make sure I have it on me no matter where I’m going. The size is just perfect (30ml), it smells deliciously, it doesn’t feel greasy at all and it’s cheap… so what else would you need from a beauty essential.

The all-in-one BB cream and Instablur are must-have products when you want your face to feel make-up free and look fresh. The BB cream adapts to your skin tone and leaves your skin hydrated, while the Instablur feels silky on the skin without leaving it greasy. It gives a matte finish and really, really makes my foundation stay on longer compared to other primers.

Younique’s Moodstruck Minerals Blusher has become an essential product in my daily beauty routine. Apart from the small amount of pigment you need to use on your cheeks (which will make the product last for a long time), the blusher can also be used as lip colour. All you need to do is apply some lip gloss/Vaseline on your lips and then collect a small amount of pigment on your finger and apply over gloss. I am also really happy that the Moodstruck Minerals Blusher is 100% natural, free of preservatives and parabens. Have a look at their products. I can tell you from now that you’ll want to have them all.
DHC’s deep cleansing oil is truly amazing! I love how it dissolves all traces of dirt and cosmetics while hydrating the skin.

When it comes to hair products I am really picky. What I like about Lee Stafford’s Ubuntu Oils from Africa Light Repairing Oil Mist is that you can apply it to both wet and dry hair and will leave it pampered without the greasy look. The Flat Flexible Hold hairspray is definitely a product I will buy over and over again. Its non-sticky feel and the fact that it leaves my hair still feeling natural are definitely making this hairspray a beauty essential.
