Current Beauty Favourites

Don't you just love it when you find products that just work for you? As much as I love trying new beauty products I also love it when I find something that just works perfectly for me. Here's a roundup of the products that I have been reaching for constantly lately and have easily become my current favourites...

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser

I had a sample of this product and I loved it so much I knew I had to buy the full size as soon as I ran out. I have been using this daily morning and night, and since then my skin has been a lot clearer and less prone to break outs. It leaves your skin feeling so clean and refreshed without being dry, and it smells amazing too!

Benefit Rollerlash Mascara

This is by far one of my favourite mascaras. I love to try out different mascaras but this is one I always end up going back to. I have a slight fear of eyelash curlers (pathetic, I know), so any sort of mascara that helps to lift my lashes I just love! This curved brush definitely does the trick for me, it catches every little lash and makes them look so long without ever looking clumpy. I'd say this mascara is more for length rather than volume so bare that in mind if you prefer a thicker lash look, but this is great for making your lashes look super long.

Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum

I have been using this for a while now and I can't even explain how much I love it. My skin has been so different since introducing this serum into my skincare routine, I used to suffer with quite bad skin but it is now so much clearer and brighter.  It has not only stopped my very frequent breakouts, but it has also helped with any redness or dry patches I had, my skin has just been so much healthier since using this. I feel like if I ever have any problem areas this just helps calm everything down. I'd say the name 'repair serum' is very fitting because that is exactly how I would describe it, it's quite pricey but has made such a big difference to my skin.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream

Since a NYX stand has come to one of my local Boots stores, I'm slowly getting to try more of their products. I'd heard such good things about their soft matte lip creams so I decided to pick one up in the shade 19 'Cannes'. This is such a wearable shade and I have found myself reaching for this so often. Unlike a lot of matte lip products, it doesn't feel dry when you apply it, you don't find yourself dragging it across your lips but instead it feels really creamy and velvety, and then dries looking super matte. I've never found it to go patchy or weird-looking throughout the day but wears really nicely and can be easily reapplied. Overall really impressed, and they are only £5.50! Will definitely be picking up more of these.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer

I recently picked up the Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer in the shade 'Light Neutral'. I have been really enjoying using this, it gives such good coverage but doesn't feel heavy at all. It has a flat sided doe foot applicator which I find picks up the perfect amount of product. I find this great for the under eye area and for any redness I want to cover. I don't find it settles in to fine lines and wears really nicely throughout the day. It has been my go-to concealer lately.
