Do you love to experiment with your beauty products or do you have a routine that you can’t seem to break from? I’m kind of stuck somewhere in the middle, I’m trying to embrace new things, which is why I thought I would share all my current favourites – from nail varnishes to moisturiser and even a crazy-looking brush.
Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish, Hot Cloth Cleanser
There is something therapeutic about using this award-winning cleanser, I’ve quite enjoyed spending the time doing the two-phase process while removing my make-up at the end of a long day. First you massage in the cleanser onto your face, and then you rinse it off with hot water using the muslin cloth. I can’t believe how amazing my skin feels afterwards, it is hard to go back to using anything else, and I can’t believe it has taken me so long to discover it. I think I need to check out more Liz Earle products.
Mark Hill Wonder Hair Spray & Wonderball
I have a love-hate relationship with hairspray, I find them very heavy on my hair and I’m not a fan of the crispy residue it sometimes leaves, which is probably why I’m a fan of this Mark Hill 12 in 1 wonder product as it is much more than just a hold for your hair. I love that it also adds volume, smooths, lifts, protects, and best of all it easily brushes out.
My favourite way of using is as a styling spray, I add it to my hair before I dry and curl using this incredible 6 in 1 styling Wonderball brush, granted it looks a little crazy, but it really is great for adding a relaxed wave through blow-dried hair.

Paul & Joe Moisture Cream
This Paul & Joe product is one of my current favourites, it really has been perfect on my dry skin as the rich cream formula has been infused with jojoba oil. Since I have been using it I’ve really noticed an improvement in the texture and tone of my skin. As well as being pleased with the how it makes my skin glow, I’m in love with the elegant packaging, it really is making me wish that I had a dressing table, as this beauty really deserves to be shown off.
This Works Deep Sleep Stress Less
Having a bad night’s sleep is the worst feeling, and over the years, I’ve suffered from too many worrying thoughts going round my head that have stopped me from getting to sleep, which is why I’m a huge fan of This Works sleep range. I’ve tried the pillow spray and the shower gel before, both helped, but I think this roller ball is my favourite, the soothing natural remedy is never far from my bed. It really does have a calming effect and I love the lavender scent. I particular love using it when I’m travelling to ensure I get a good night’s sleep.
Kellogg’s Cereal Lip Balms
I’m a sucker for cute packaging and sugary cereals, so these Kellogg’s Rice Krispies and Coco Pops lip balms are perfect. Both keep my lips nourished and looking good, but my favourite has to be the banana-flavoured Rice Krispies one, it doesn’t hurt that it is shaped like a cereal box either.
The whole Kellogg’s collection from Mad Beauty at Asos is so much fun, I love this Rice Krispies make-up bag, which I have to be honest I’m using as a pencil case on my desk as it is far too pretty to be hidden away in a bathroom. I also love the vintage collection they do – I can’t wait to try the bath milk.
Nails Inc Blossom – Bloomsbury Way
Anything inspired by the beauty of blossom trees gets my attention, I do love to Instagram pretty pink blossom, and this nail polish adds the prettiest confetti-like effect that looks beautiful as a top colour over a pastel shade. Top tip is to dab it on rather than paint it will help get as much confetti-blossom as you want over your base coat. The only downside to this pretty nail varnish is that it is quite difficult to remove, you will need to soak your nails to get all the blossom bits off, but it is so worth it!!!
Paul & Joe Limited Edition Nail Polish – Green Turtle
Like with the moisture cream, the nail polish is another dressing table beauty, the finish of the product is just so pretty, I really do love the vintage-inspired cosmetic packaging. I’m having a green moment and this playful ‘green turtle’ colour is perfect for spring. I’m also a fan of the fact the nail polish is free from DBP, toluene – so no nasty smell to it, and formaldehyde. To get a great finish it needs, at least, two coats.
