Recent Favourites: Hair & Beauty
I am getting a bit bored of my usual monthly favourites posts and I never post them at the end of the month so I thought I would start a new format where I can show you my favourite things at whatever point during the month that I feel like.
Tresemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Spray - Due to my overuse of heated hair tools, especially since I got a curling wand for Christmas, I have been in desperate need to take better care of my hair and since I was pleased with the Tresemmé keratin smooth shampoo and conditioner, I opted for the heat protection spray from the same range. Not only does it protect your hair from the heat, it makes it so incredibly soft and strengthens your hair by building up keratin (stuff that makes your hair, nails and bones stronger). I love this product so much and it means I don't need to use a leave in conditioner to keep it soft.
Topshop Stippling Foundation Brush - I had been looking for an alternative to a flat foundation brush because I personally don't like the way they apply foundation as it think it makes it a bit smudgy and uneven so I saw this one in Topshop which is so pretty and blue. It is excellent at blending in foundation to leave you with a natural looking and non-patchy face. I don't think I will ever go back to using a flat brush.
Barbara Daly Powder Brush (similar here) - Another make up brush I have been pleased with recently is the Barbara Daly powder brush which I managed to get from Tesco at about £3 as it was in a 'better than half price' sale. It is a silky sort of smooth as opposed to a soft sort of smooth if that makes any sense at all. I find that it spreads the powder out a lot more evenly than me other one and blends it in a bit more. To say it is from a supermarket it is pretty good.
Seventeen Eye Kohl - I am rubbish with pencil eyeliners but they can really add a lot to your make up look and I was in desperate need of a new one so I bought this Seventeen kohl pencil. I normally find that pencil eyeliners make my eyes water but this one doesn't. It is quite dark so you don't need layers and layers and lasts all day without making you look like a panda. When I run out I will definitely be repurchasing this product.
Garnier Skin Naturals Moisture Match Protect and Glow Illuminating Light Lotion - Other than the super long name of this moisturiser that is a bit of a mouthful to say, I love this product. I mentioned in my everyday skincare routine post that I used the blue version of this but it was for dry skin but I finally got around to getting the right one for my skin type which is just normal skin. I bought this mainly for the SPF 20 because it is important to protect your skin from UV rays boys and girls. I don't know how to tell whether it protects your skin or whether there is a way to tell but lets presume that it does, I love this moisturiser as it's not greasy and it really does make your skin really smooth. I can't say that it has made me skin more 'illuminated' but that doesn't bother me that much to be honest.
Topshop Lipstick in Beguiled - Last but definitely not least is my new favourite lipstick from Topshop which is such a wonderful deep plum colour but isn't too dark. Thankfully it doesn't dry out your lips and lasts all day. Finally I have found the perfect lipstick - hallelujah.
There we have it, a few things I have been loving. What have been your favourite hair and beauty products recently?
