I thought I'd share some of the products that I'm loving at the moment and why. I'm always trying new products, but I do have my basics that I stick to. One thing I will mention is washing my face morning and night makes a big difference, my face really brightens up. Also as annoying as it sounds drinking alot of water helps too. Anyhoodle here they are, some skincare, makeup and hair products. :-)

TEA TREE FACIAL CLEANSING WIPES. Buy it! You won't regret it! You get 2 packs for 99p! I really enjoy these facial wipes I use them daily, they're the best I've ever used, all other ones I've tried seem to burn even Johnson's Baby believe it or not. It's great for taking off eye make-up especially if you're a heavy mascara wearer like me. The product claims to be specially formulated to help cleanse and refresh your skin by removing excess dirt, make-up and other skin impurities helping to promote a clearer complexion. My skin definitely agrees with Tea Tree my skin feels so clean and refreshed after every use. I sometimes get lazy with washing my face at night and these wipes are great for giving you that really clean feeling.

SEBA MED LIQUID FACE & BODY WASH. I started using this face & body wash last year when I couldn't figure out what was going on with my skin. I read for sensitive skin on the packaging and was convinced it might work for me. :-) I was correct! At the time I didn't know I had eczema on my face which was season related my skin was dry, flaky and itchy with small little bumps. I'd never experienced this before and my usual eczema cream wasn't working because I was actually using diprobase. Lol More on that later...
This soap free product claims to be especially formulated with mild wash active ingredients Sebamed Liquid Face & Body Wash is particularly indicated for the cleansing and conditioning of sensitive and problematic skin. It's PH value of 5.5 strengthens and stabilizes the ecological balance of the skin's acid mantle promoting it's barrier function and resistance to harmful environmental influences. An effective prophylaxis against blemishes and other skin disorders. A sophisticated care complex, of vitamins, allantoin and the active moisturizing Pentavitin ®, protects the skin from dehydration. This rich blend of moisturizers and gentle tensions cleanse your skin without  irritation. The skin becomes perceptibly smoother and suppler during cleansing for a unique after washing feeling.

JOHNSON'S BABY BEDTIME LOTION. OMG I love this stuff! If you have trouble sleeping sometimes like me use this before bed. I use this and the Johnson's Baby Bedtime Bath & Oil. I always feel amazing and have a good quality sleep. It contains lavender, and lavender as we knows aids in relaxing and soothing etc.

POND'S HYDRONOURISHING CREAM. If you've been following my blog for a while you'll know I'm quite fond of Pond's moisturizers. Pond's Institute has developed it's Pond's Hydronourishing HN cream with Hydro-elastine and Vitamin E in order to:

• Improve skin moisturisation.
• Nourish helping to obtain a softer and smoother skin.
• Help to protect and strengthen skin by fighting against the loss of essential lipids.

The truth is in the title "Hydronourishing" this is definitely one of my go to winter moisturizers, it absorbs right into my skin. I love to use this after cleansing with my Rio Sonic. :-) My skin stays moisturised all day whenever I use this especially around my nose which is my "dry patch" area. I definitely recommend if you suffer from dry skin.

IDOLL 360° MASCARA. Simply the best! Whenever I fork out on expensive mascaras they always end up being dissapointing but the bargain buys end up being amazing. Why is this? I don't know...Lol I purchased this from Poundland and it gave me that false lash effect with around 2-3 coats. Yay me! :-)

BETNOVATE CREAM. Life saver! This cream is a life saver if you suffer from random outbursts of eczema like me. I think mine is stress and definitely seasonal related. You can only use a tiny amount as over time it thins out the skin it's a very potent steroid cream. I can have the worst eczema ever and as soon as I use it the next day it's gone! This is prescribed to me by my doctor. This is the cream I thought I was using when I was actually using diprobase. No wonder it didn't work .Lol

BARRY M LIP GLOSS IN MILKSHAKE. Try it! I promise you'll love it and understand why I want Poundland to bring it back so I can stock up!

SALLY HANSEN INSTA DRI. Normally I would be using Sally Hansen's Mega Shine or Diamond Shine as my top coats but I'd ran out and didn't want buy anymore as I still had brand new unopened top coats in my stash. The Insta Dri line was one of them. To my surprise it's just like the others except it dries a bit slower and is not as shiny.

ORGANIC MOISTURIZING VITAMIN E OIL. I've been using this for years but I don't think I've mentioned it on the blog before. With every moisturizer or lotion I seal with this oil afterwards.

GLORIOUS MUD FACIAL MASK. This is another product that makes me feel like I've been to the spa. I use this weekly as part of my facial routine in the morning or evening. Beauty Formulas Rejuvenating Glorious Mud Deep Cleansing Face Mask is formulated with 100% pure clay to help remove dirt and excess oil from the skin's surface. Absorbs impurities, unclog pores and removes dead skin cells. Non-Comedogenic so it will not clog pores. Lanolin free. Leaves skin softer and smoother for a fresh healthy glow. When I first used it I applied way too much, I thought more meant a deep treatment. Lol This product helped calm the eczema on my face when it was at its worst. It leaves my face feeling so clean and smooth. If you're someone who has an oily t-zone I definitely recommend this as it helps calm that too. I purchased this from Savers but I've also seen it in Poundland and the 99p Store. It's a great cleansing mask for just £1, just remember less is more you don't need alot to get the full benefits of the treatment.

ARGAN OIL HAIR TREATMENT. Soft! Soft! Soft! My hair feels amazingly soft whenever I use this product I apply it to my damp hair when airdrying/blowdrying. Argan Oil Hair Treatment has been specially formulated using oil from the fruit of Argan Tree and enriched with Vitamin E, a natural anti-oxidant to nourish and rejuvenate dry and damaged hair. This concentrated formula will help protect the hair whilst adding shine and reducing frizz. It leaves my hair feeling soft and silky it also makes a great detangler giving my hair that advert shine and taming those frizzies which is a plus if you're an avid airdryer like moi, and it smells lovely. Ive used this whole line and it's fantastic I especially love the conditioner for cowashing (I highly recommend). It's a great line for jus £1. As with most products a little goes a long way. If you want silky, soft, frizz-free, shiny hair definitely give this a try. You'll love it! :-)
