Beauty hound’s best buys

beauty hound best buys

these are my daily beauty superstars. super hard working skincare and make up that I go back to again and again. my desert island products – but I’d have to take them all!

i’m not doing a full review of each product because frankly there are thousands out there already (everyone else seems to like my fave beauty finds too!) but, I will quickly run through what I like about each one and how I use them.

elizabeth arden 8 hour Cream – best beauty product ever. known as magic cream in our house, this super slick balm is fab for chapped lips, cuts, grazes, burns, cuticles, super dry skin…..I could go on all day. a total must and worth ever penny.

oil of olay original beauty fluid – classic. my mom uses it and she looks nowhere near her 67 years. nuff said.


ysl touché éclat no 2 – Everybody loves this one already. Use as a highligher though and never for concealing blemishes. Got to be no. 2 for me – I find no. 1 too pink for my yellow toned skin.

Yale touché éclat

botanics deeply moisturising body lotion – best body moisturiser I’ve ever used. thick and creamy but never greasy, absorbs fast. smells divine.

batitise dry shampoo – the modern classic. use the night before for super hair the next morn. no grease and no powder guaranteed .


estee lauder double wear foundation and mascara – best none budging foundation and mascara. expensive, but worth it if you need the extra coverage and make up usually slides off your face. the mascara is none flaky and doesn’t irritate my sensitive eyes.

Estée Lauder double wear


benefit boiing concealer – industrial strength for those annoying breakouts or scarring. Set with some powder for ultimate staying power.


santuary spa 5 minute thermal detox mask – super soothing charcoal mask to draw out those imperfections. the self heating is a gorgeous bonus for a relaxing, pampering bath

Sanctuary spa mask

avon sleeptherapy restful night balm – lovely lavender scented balm. Just rub a little on your wrists before bed and drift off to a restful sleep.
