I thought I’d go for a different tactic for today’s post. I love lists and am constantly writing them.
Today’s post is therefore a reflection of that and so I’d like to share with you my top 5 products that I’m currently loving. We always write about new products to us and don’t mention enough the ones that we actually do use, repurchase and love to bits!
So here’s my current top 5 favourites:
1: Murad’s AHA/BHA Exfoliating cleanser.
This cleanser is something that I’ve been using for a while now. I regularly use this a couple of times a week as part of my skin regime. I normally cleanse my make up off my face and then use this afterwards as an exfoliator. I try to use this in the shower so that I can massage it in and leave it on my skin so that the acids can work their magic on my dull complexion.
The tiny beads in this help to buff my skin away with no irritation and leaves it feeling super soft.
This tube costs around £34 i think, but has lasted me over a year and I still have around half left, so it’s worth every penny.
2: Label M’s Protein Spray
We’ve mentioned this in a number of posts previously and its a god send for my long hair. I don’t tend to heat treat it very often (only blasting it with a dryer normally) and only style it every few weeks for an occasion.
But even so as my hair is so long now it’s taking a bit more care to keep it in a good condition.
This spray is just such a simple way to add extra nutrients and protection to my hair. It’s lightweight, obviously easy to use and can be applied to wet and dry hair. It smells great, not too heavy in fragrance which I prefer and I find it really refreshing to spray on.
This has also lasted me a long time and it still feels heavy, I’d actually be gutted if this ran out any time soon!
This costs £13.25 for a 250ml bottle, but is also available in 50ml and 500ml bottles.
3: Benefit’s It’s Potent! Eye Cream
This product is a relatively new addition to my stash and I have only been using it a short time.
This means that when concerning long term effects I can’t comment too much….
But it feels luxurious on application, has not irritated my sensitive eyes one little bit and they feel so hydrated that I’m annoyed I haven’t tried it out before!
This costs £24.50 for 14.2g and from how much I’ve used so far, it seems it will last me a long time.
4: Aesop Parsley Seed Serum
This serum has been recommended to me many times and after picking it up for some reason it got lost in my stash.
Having rediscovered it after using up all the other serums I own it was such a relief. I started applying it morning and night and my skin drank it straight up! It feels a lot more hydrated than it was feeling when my serums ‘ran out’ and it hasn’t been irritated by it at all, and trust me, I plaster this on.
It sinks in so fast sometimes i apply another layer, probably not ideal as it’s a rather expensive product but my skin feels so much better. As the small bottle I have doesn’t come with a pipette attachment it’s a little wasteful as I have to pour it out, but the larger bottle seems to come with one which is much more economical.
The 100ml bottle comes in at a £45 price tag…..which is a tad on the expensive side.
It would be amazing if this was cheaper as I’d definitely pick it up again. But Aesop needs no help from me for sales as it’s extremely popular; the truth is you get what you pay for.
5: Dr Organic’s Coconut Hand Cream
Dr Organic is a great brand with a massive range of product in a variety of scents.
I’m a hand cream novice and am constantly having M and my mum going on at me to use them, hands can age you as everyone seems to forget about them and only concentrate on the face.
The coconut hand cream is a great product, it sinks in fast which is a must for me as I really can’t deal with waiting for it to sink in. The smell is natural but not overpowering and it leaves my hands feeling smooth.
It’s everything that a hand cream novice could ask for!
This comes in at £5.99 for 100ml and is an absolute bargain!
I hope you’ve enjoyed my top 5, I plan on doing more over the next couple of months to show you what I really am loving.
Next time I will be writing about my make up favourites if you’d like to check back for that!
