As I love watching peoples annual favourites, I thought I’d do one myself. This is my skin care and body care favourites, but I’ve already done one about makeup and next week I’ll do one on my favourite hair products, nail stuff and fragrance. Let me know what your favourites from 2017 were and also let me know what you want to see from me this year.
La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Anti-Shine SPF 50+ (£16.50) – This is the only product that claims to be anti-shine that I actually find to be anti-shine – if you have oily skin, you need this in your life. And the fact that it has SPF 50 in it is an added bonus. I wear this when I don’t have makeup on and I also mix it with my foundation sometimes.
Mario Badescu Drying Lotion (£16) – I use a cotton bud to apply this to my blemishes at night and it dries them up and makes them go away faster. It’s had a lot of hype but it’s worth it and if you have acne prone skin, you need to get this product.
L’Oréal Pure Clay Detox Mask (£7.99) – This is a great face mask, especially for the price. I use it once a week, usually on a Sunday or just whenever I feel like my skin needs it. I feel like it draws impurities out of my skin and prevents blemishes from forming and also clears up my skin a little bit. I really like this face mask, I think it’s great.
Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water (£4.99) – I really like this for taking off my makeup or for just refreshing my skin a bit. It does a great job of taking off my makeup or any excess makeup I still have left on my skin. This is really well priced and I don’t think there is any need in buying a more expensive micellar water when you can just buy this.
Soap & Glory Hand Food Hydrating Hand Cream (£5.50) – This is a really good affordable hand cream that is really hydrating. It helps the eczema on my hand and stops it from itching which shows that it’s a good hand cream.
St Ives Blemish Fighting Apricot Scrub (£4.19) – This is a great exfoliator and I find that it gets all the dry patches off my skin and makes my makeup go on really well afterwards. It also does fight blemishes which is a great added bonus for me.
Holland & Barrett Aloe Vera Gel (£7.49) – I’ve been using this on my skin all year before my moisturiser in hopes that it would prevent breakouts etc. It has and I think my skin is noticeably better now so if you suffer with breakouts to any degree, you need to try this out.
E45 Cream (£8) – I love this for my face and for dry patches on my body where I have mild eczema. It’s so moisturising and because it’s got no fragrance or anything, it’s not irritating at all. I’ve got oily, dehydrated skin so this is great as it isn’t oily but it’s hydrating. It’s also great value for money.
Kocostar Foot Peeling Pack (£8) – This is everything I hoped it would be – it literally made all of the skin on my feet peel off (it was SO satisfying). It left my feet feeling so soft and almost brand new. If you have hard skin on the bottoms of your feet, this will get it off. I urge everyone to trying this.
Lush Twilight Bath Bomb (£3.95) – This is probably my favourite Lush bath bomb of all time so I just had to mention it. It is so relaxing and has great ingredients in it. Next time you’re in Lush please pick this up. It’s not the most exciting but it’s my favourite.
St Moriz Self Tan Mousse in Medium (£4.99) – I really like this fake tan and despite the price, it is amazing. It doesn’t go patchy, it isn’t orange at all and it looks like a natural tan. It requires minimal effort to apply and to maintain so I recommend it to everyone.
Dove DermaSpa Summer Revived Gradual Self Tan in Light/Medium (£7.79) – If I want an even more natural looking tan that is even easier to apply and even easier to maintain, this is great. It is really natural, buildable and it’s great for a Summer glow.
Soap & Glory Scrub of Your Life (£7) – I love this scrub for fake tan prep as it exfoliates all of my dead skin cells off and makes my knees and elbows smoother for better application. It’s a really nice and affordable scrub which I really enjoy using.
