I think we all have those products which we keep repurchasing because we know that if they run out and we don’t have a back-up the world may end…
That’s what it’s like for me with these five products.
The first one is Nivea’s Lip Butter in Vanilla & Macadamia. This product has been in my life for the longest, since 2012 to be exact. I’ve tried other lip balms, such as Bert’s Bees and Baby Lips but neither come close to how good the Nivea Lip Butter is.
I love the formula, it’s very creamy and moisturizing and I’ve barely had dry lips since using this product on a daily basis.
They have seven different flavors but I always tend to pick up the Vanilla & Macadamia one as I love the smell of it. I have tried the Raspberry one but I didn’t like it as much. However, they have recently come out with a new Coco one, which I really want to try.
The next product is Batiste Dry Shampoo in Dark & Deep Brown. Once again, I’ve tried other similar products, such as the Herbal Essences Dry Shampoo (review here) but I always go back to purchasing the Batiste brand. I think it’s because it does add volume as well as making your hair look and feel fresh.
But what I love most about it is that the powder is brown and for me this is a big bonus as my hair is really dark so dry shampoos with white powder really irritate me as the powder is sometimes still visible in the hair after massaging it in.
The next two products are both skincare products.The first one is Simple’s Light Moisturizer. I first discovered it back in the summer when I wanted a new moisturizer with SPF in it.
I immediately fell in love with this product. It hydrated my skin really well for being a light moisturizer and I loved the fact that it had SPF 15 in it…which is plenty for the UK. It soaks into the skin really quickly, allowing you to apply your makeup straight after. It’s still part of my skincare routine, even in these colder months because I love it so much. (Skincare routine coming soon)
The next skincare product I can’t live without is from Lush…duh! and that’s their Mask of Magnaminty face mask (review here). I love this product, it’s a perfect product for getting rid of those annoying blemishes. I always have a pot of this in my cupboard for emergencies. The review shows you how much I love this product.
The final product is L’Oreal True Match foundation. Although it’s the most expensive product featured in this post, at £9.99 a bottle, it’s still an amazing price for such a good quality product.
This is the second bottle for me. The first shade I got was W3 but found it too dark but still fell in love with the formula of the product so decided to repurchase it but in a different shade. I’m currently using N3, which was perfect for my summer skin colour but I’m feeling now I need the shade lighter.
(W stands for “warm”, N stands for “neutral”and C stands for “cool”)
That’s what is great about this product, there are so many shades to pick from, you are bound to find a shade that suits you.
It has great coverage and it’s very buildable if you want a more concealed look for those nights out. I use my Real Techniques Buffing Brush to blend it into my skin and it works really well, blending the product into my skin really nicely which leaves my skin looking flawless. It also lasts a really long time which is always a bonus. I never tend to re-powder during the day when wearing this foundation.
All these products I will always end up repurchasing because… like the title suggests…I just can’t live without them. What are your holy grail products you can’t live without? I would love to know.
Thanks for reading and supporting.
Until next time…
