5 Products that I love!!!

In starting this blog I thought i'd give you a little insight to the products I love most, there's nothing too extravagant in the list but every item there has lived up to (and more) what it claims to do on the bottle. I hope you enjoy reading!

1. St Tropez Auto-Bronzant Lotion - I'm Scottish and have the traditional white (with a hint of blue!) pasty skin which personally I hate! I don't even seem to tan when I go on holiday either :( but apparently 'faking' it is they way to go and hopefully it will keep the wrinkles at bay! So anyway the reason I love this is that it alwyas appears to be flawless and as long as you exfoliate and moisturise properly it shouldn't turn orange or streaky, it also smells amazing! . I have tried other fake tans such as fake bake (gave me a rash) and the sienna tan (a good cheaper alternative) but none of them have matched up to this. Also I wouldn't recommend the mousse version of this as I didn't think I had quite as many applications as I get from the lotion and the colour seemed to be lighter too. The only disappointing thing about it is that it claims to be so dark that it hides strech marks but I found that it made mine stand out more.

2. Dove 2 in 1 Daily Therapy Daily Conditioner - I have tried LOTS of different shampoos and conditioners, so of which have been ridiculously expensive especially when they failed to do what they say! I eventually found that Charles Worthington salon shine results brilliant shine shampoo and conditioner was the one that worked best on my hair (the comments on how shiny my hair looked swayed me a bit :D) until I decided to bleach it, my hair didn't look shiny or even feel soft so I had to look for a new shampoo which is how I came accross the dove shampoo. I only bought it cause it was on special for £1 and i've not used another product since. It means I still bleach my hair and it is shiny and soo soft!! The only problem is I find my hair to be a bit static but thats nothing a bit of hairspray won't fix!

3. Boots 17 Solo Eyeshadows - Ok, so the reason I love these are mainly for the price. I get a bit scared when trying new colours of eyeshadow as i'm never sure whats going to suit me so I buy these first instead of buying more expensive ones and finding that they don't suit me and never get touched again . The collection has a great colour range perfect for experimenting with, at the moment my fave is viva diva, and they don't crease and they blend very well! There is also a glitter range available too and usually some kind of deal on them such as BOGOF or 3 for the price of 2.

4. Clinique Superfit Makeup Foundation - The one beauty product I can't live without is foundation! It's my fave part of my beauty routine. It can transform the look of your skin so much (as long as you find the right one and the right shade for you) and this makes my skin look amazing! I find I need quite a lot of coverage I love that whole 'airbrushed' look and this gives me the coverage I want without being heavy and it looks natural. It's oil-free as well which is brilliant if like me you're prone to the odd spot and have an oily t-zone.

5. Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Sugar Plum - I've never been a lipstick fan as any I tried never seemed to suit me at all so I didn't ever bother with it and stuck to lipgloss but I received this in a rimmel gift set and I fell in love with it straight away. It's a lovely pink shade, very bright and makes a good statement lipstick. It feels quite conditioning on my lips and does actually last as it claims I did find that it bled a little bit but managed to fix this with a lip pencil. It looks great with black eyeliner on the top lids and heavy mascara. Simple but very pretty! Definitely stands out.

I absolutely LOVE the superfit makeup by Clinique. It's so lightweight and doesn't make me look cakey.
