Every girl has them, doesn’t she? Those favourite few products that you always use, come hell or high water. Thees are mine:
1. Maybelline Great Lash Mascara
I’ve tried them all – the ones with strange shaped wands, the one with the vibrating battery powered wand, the one with a primer at one end and the mascara at the other. And I always, always come back to this one. Always in dark brown, mind, never black. Cheap, cheerful and in my humble opinion, the best of the lot!
2. Body Shop Body Butter
My absolute favourite body lotion of all time (though I do admit to a bit of a thing about Johnson’s Holiday Skin as well). I haven’t yet come across a fragrance in this range that I don’t like, and this is the one I’m using currently – it’s so nice, I want to eat my arm when I’ve put it on!
3. Laura Mercier Mineral Make Up
I’m a recent convert to mineral make up, and I can’t believe I’m so late to the party! The coverage is gives is just amazing. I’ve tried several different makes, and I have to say in this case, the expensive one is the winner. Anything that can make MY skin look so smooth and flawless has to be worth the small fortune I spent on it last time I was in Selfridges! The mineral primer is fantabulous as well.
4. Philosophy Soul Owner Exfoliating Foot Cream
This is simply the best foot cream ever. Slather it onto horrible hard skinned feet before you go to bed, and you’ll wake up in the morning with gorgeous baby soft tootsies. Seriously – you’ve GOT to try it – it’s brilliant.
5. Olay Touch of Sunshine Daily Moisturiser
During autumn, winter and spring, I use this every morning, because it has a hint of sunless tanner in it, and I do like a bit of colour in my otherwise pallid and unhealthy looking face. And it smells really nice, too.
Oooh, I really enjoyed this week’s Friday 5 – what are your essential beauty products?
