Most Wanted // Beauty products


This 'Most Wanted' post is a little different than usual and won't feature any clothes! There are so many beauty products that I'm desperate for recently, that I've decided to share a few that are currently sitting at the top of my list. 

1. Alterna Caviar Rapid Repair Spray for hair - Lowest price I could find is £20 including postage
2. Nude Cleansing Facial Oil £14
3. Bioderma Crealine H2O £17+/-
4. Gucci Flora £54 for 50ml EDP
5. Bobbi Brown Lipstick - Pale Mauve £16
6. Lancome Blush Subtil - Highlighting Rose 001 £25
7. Crest White Strips 3D £20+/-
8. Sigma Make Up Brushes $79
9. Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Foundation £26.50
10. Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation £25

1 // I tried this hair product after receiving it in my first glossybox, and fell in love. Its expensive, and I don't understand the science behind it at all... Actually, I'm not actually sure what it even does, but it does do something. Whilst using this I received so many compliments about my hair. And I miss the scent.

2 // I have a 15ml bottle of this and its perfect for removing make up. Its easy to use and my skin feels super soft after using it at night. 

3 // Hands down, the absolute holy grail for make up removal. I use this at the end of every day to remove every trace, without any redness or effort. Its hard to find, but worth it. I'm just about to run out of a bottle that has last me  3/4 months and will definitely be buying another bottle.

4 // I've just finished my second bottle of this, and still love it. I am also craving Viktor & Rolfs flowerbomb, but Gucci Flora wins every time for me. I think I've turned into one of those people who have a 'signature scent.'

5 // I've tried this lipstick a couple of times and adore the subtle colour. I need to try it again before purchasing. I've never bought a Bobbi Brown lipstick before, so am unsure yet about the staying power - Anyone have any experience with lipstick from this brand? 

6 // I love Benefits High Beam, but feel a little bit odd sometimes putting a liquid product on top of my powder. This highlighter is such a gorgeous light colour with the right amount of sheen. 

7 // I used Crest White Strips last year and am pleased to say that they genuinely work! If you can remember to use them daily I'd definitely recommend them. I used Classic this time, but am looking for results in a quicker time and I'm expecting to find that in this range.

8 // I have so many make up brushes, a few that I'm absolutely thrilled with. (Elf's powder brush and Mac 224 blending brush and stippling brushes) but I'd love a full set of decent brushes, particularly for the eye area.

9 // I've been using Estee Lauder Double Wear for quite a while now, and am looking for something a lot lighter. Although its available in a smaller range of shade, 01 matches my skin colour much better than Ecru in Double Wear, and looks a lot more natural. 

10 //  After reading this blog post, I've decided that I need to try this. Unfortunately there are no stockists around me, so it'll be a little while before I grab a sample!

There are so many things I could add to this list, but this is a somewhat condensed list of products that I'm currently craving the most! A craving that won't be satisfied until I own them, I'm sure.

Are there any beauty products that you're dying to get your hands on at the moment? Anything else I should try?

  2. i'm desperate for a bigger bottle of that caviar hair stuff, it smelled sooo good. i used to use crest white strips but my teeth are far too sensitive for them these days. have you seen the 2 hour ones they do? they're supposed to make your teeth really white for 3 months but you just apply them once. i'd love to try a pack xx

  3. I really need to go to the dentist to have my teeth cleaned. I am still a little bit unsure about using the stripes. My dentist told me you need to be very very careful when using them because they can damage your gums and teeth. So be careful! :) X
