Beauty | My Top 5 Beauty Essentials


I really enjoy reading beauty essentials/must have posts, sometimes for recommendations and sometimes just to be nosey! These are my current top 5 beauty essentials.

I purchased this lip balm whilst I was on holiday back in June. I'm not entirely sure if this is sold in the UK.
The consistency is thicker than the other baby lips that I have tried so it feels more moisturising. I tend to use it first thing in the morning and also before using any lipsticks. I am a fan of the Maybelline Baby Lips, they are small enough to pop in your bag or pocket and leave my lips feeling so smooth.

I love this stuff! My skin has improved so much since using it. I almost gave up at first, the Effaclar Duo really made my face sting for a few days, it was like I had been stung by a dozen bees all over my face! It is worth persevering though as my skin is now the best it's ever been!

I featured this in my Lush hair care post a few weeks ago. I already know that once I have finished it I will definitely be buying it again. My hair has never felt better since I started using it. If you have really really dry hair then I highly recommend it!

 Perfumes are an essential for me as I wear it every day. This one is a favourite of mine, it's quite strong, probably the kind of scent that most people would wear at night time but, one quick spritz is perfect for me during the day. I got a sample of it about a year ago and then on my birthday this year Mr C kindly got me a bottle as a gift.
I use body lotion every day, if I don't I get really dry and itchy skin. I had been using the Jergens lotion which was ok but as the weather gets cooler I switched back to this one which is a favourite of mine.

So there is a round up of my favourites, let me know what yours are!
Much Love
