I have a lot of beauty products, by normal people standards. I even had to specially by a new (plastic) chest of drawers to put it all. That being said, I have a few solid favourites that I can/would/do buy again. (I feel I should include a picture of my chest of drawers here to demonstrate just how much crap I have, however my room is a mess and also all the way upstairs. So. There we go.)
The following is a list of some products I like, why I like them and how I use them (if it isn't glaringly obvious.)
Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream for Face
|lel- too lazy to wipe off the pancake.|
got2b Beach Matt Texturising Spray
|Wouldn't a mermaid look be more wet and underwater?|
Dry Shampoo- assorted brands
|I only like and use products that have a sexist brand name.|
Lush Cosmetics Dark Angels Face and Body Cleanser
|Wear as makeup for a youthful, Dickensian Chimney Sweep Look.|
Well that's how I used to feel, but I would battle all of those demons for this scrub. It is just about the scrubbiest scrub I've ever used, my face just feels so silky smooth after. What I do is gently rub it onto my skin (after doing the whole making-it-into-a-paste thing) then leave it a while. I leave it because, well, my logic is it contains clay, clay is like a magnet for impurities and I'm therefore using it as both a scrub and mask. Is that right? No idea but it works for me. I then, again gently, wipe it away and give it a little scrub under running water. So I basically just use it in the shower.
- Side bar, while you're leaving it to slurp the impurities out of your skin you can get on with conditioning your hair or washing your body or shaving your toes. Whatever else that needs doing whilst you're in there.
At some point I have every intention of doing a makeup favourites. However, that will be difficult. If I include all of them the list will be as long as my arm, which is actually ridiculously long. Tall girl problems. But soon. Soon.
