The Beauty Products I Just Can't Stop Buying...

20 February 2019

Writing about beauty products seems to be a thing of the past when it comes to blogs recently. I used to love coming online reading a blog and finding out what beauty products people were using as it always used to inspire me to try out new products or even old products that I had bought but maybe not used yet. At the weekend just gone I spent the Sunday cleaning and tidying my room, especially my dressing table and I just felt inspired to share some of my favorite beauty products that I keep repurchasing at the moment.

If you've followed me for a while now then you will know that I am not your typical beauty blogger that has drawers stuffed full of make up or skincare/beauty products. I find that I can only use one product or a range of products (skincare routine) at a time and it tends to be what I stick to. I do try to be more adventurous but it's something that I fail with as one...make up and skincare are super pricey and two...If I find a product that works for me I keep on buying and using it until it's either discontinued or they've re-branded it and it's no longer the same. Please let me know in the comments if you do this as well.

As you can tell from the photos above (which I know aren't the best but I love them anyway) there's only a select few products I keep reaching for and they are all products I highly recommend so keep on reading to find out my thoughts about each one.

Rimmel Lipstick in 'Drop Of Sherry (058) - For as long as I can remember I have struggled with finding a lipstick that actually suits me. I have one of those skin tones where things can either look good or absolutely horrendous. There is just no inbetween and finding a lipstick that would suit me was definitely something that I struggled with. Lipstick is something I have to wear for work and I'm not kidding when I say it took me a good three years to finally find a shade that doesn't make me look like a clown. First of all the name is just super cute and the colour payoff is amazing and the perfect colour for every single season. The purpley read makes it the perfect lipstick no matter what the weather. I find the lipstick it is pretty much as the name adds a beautiful colour onto your lips with a touch of shimmer to it and the amount of shimmer is just right and by that I don't end up looking like a disco ball put it that way. I think the lipstick photographed is my 8th repurchase I just cannot get enough. 

Carmex Moisturising 'Cherry' Lipbalm - This is one of the few lipbalms I just absolutely love. First of all the packaging is super cute so you'll always find it in your handbag as it'll stand out you, secondly it smells super gorgeous and like fresh cherries and thirdly it really does work. I find that when you apply it you get like a tingly sensation on your lips and this too me means that it's working. Winter is super harsh on my already horrendously dry skin especially on my lips. When I was ill I could actually peel the skin from my lips they were so dry but this adorable little tube of lipbalm has definitely helped my lips a lot. Definitely one I recommend.

Lush 'Eve's Cherry' Lipscrub - Lipscrubs have always been a big part of my skincare routine until a couple of months ago when I had run out and hadn't actually repurchased any due to my nearest lush being about 40 minutes away in central London. A few weeks ago I was out with one of my best friends and I decided to pop into lush to restock up. Lush lipsrcubs are just amazing for removing the dead skin on your lips. Although not cheap at £6.50 a pop I personally feel like it's worth it as not only does it leave your lips feeling super soft; they also taste pretty good and the packaging means it looks super cute sitting in your bathroom cabinet or propped up on your sink.

L'Oreal's Dream Length Restoring Shampoo - This shampoo is incredible. I am a huge lover of L'Oreal's range of haircare products and this shampoo is no different. It smells just incredible and I find it really nourishes my hair and get's rid of all the oils and dandruff in my hair which is something I suffer with. I have really long hair (not even an exagerration I can practically sit on it at the moment) and I just find that this shampoo really helps to protect, nourish and hydrate the ends of my hair and not make them look as straggly which can be quite an awful look. It also leaves my hair feeling and smelling super clean, fresh and fruity which I really like. Definitely a range I would invest in as in my opinion it's one of L'oreal's best.

Berry Bon Bon Body Butter* - If you can't already tell this is from The Body Shop. I absolutely love the body shop body butters and I do believe this is a scent they bought out for the festive season that's just past and I am beyond obsessed. I actually received this as a gift for Christmas from my friend Beki and I just love it. I just find these are the perfect body butters for nourishing your skin during the winter month as the butter is a very thick consistency. It's one of those moisturisers that does take a while to sink into the skin but when it does it's worth it because you are left with super silky skin and you also smell incredible. My local body shop had this in stock still the other day (I have no idea if this was primarily for the Christmas season or not) so I stocked up anyway, just in case. Not going to lie this is probably a body butter to stay away from if you dislike sweet scents as this is quite strong. If you are like me and absolutely love sweet scents then I highly recommend it as it's incredible.

L'Occitane's Cherry Blossom Shower Gel & Hand Cream* - Again these are products that were gifted to me for Christmas by my cousin and they are absolutely incredible. I'm not really a floral scent kinda person (ironic considering my name is Fleur, which is also the name of these products - coincidence right) but cherry blossom is one of the few floral scents I love. Both of these products are just so super hydrating and leave your skin feeling super nourished as well as smelling incredible. I have nothing else to really say about these products except I would highly recommend them, especially the hand cream as it's perfect handbag size and even travel friendly so perfect for your hand luggage if you're travelling.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Skin Perfecting Full Coverage Foundation - I have never really been the sort of person to use a full coverage foundation as I prefer a minimal coverage however for work my skin and appearance has to look pretty much flawless and I am a huge fan of other rimmel foundations so I thought I would give this a try and I am absolutely obsessed. I've been using this foundation for about 3 years now and I find that it is always one I reach for as it's one of the best in the drugstore. I find that this foundation always evens out my skintone, blends really easily, leaves a good coverage but also looks really natural and not like you're wearing make up at all which I really like. I wear the shade Natural Beige (400) and it blends perfectly into my natural skin tone. If you're after a decent full coverage foundation but don't want to go high end then I definitely recommend this one.

Benefit's Roller Lash Mascara - I first came across Benefit's Roller Lash when they included a sample of it in the magazine 'Elle'. This was about 4 years ago now and it's still my main mascara of choice. What I love about this mascara is how it separates the lashes whilst giving them a really natural pretty curl and still looking really natural. I find that I always look a lot more wide awake when I apply this. My eyelashes are already pretty long so I tend to use this mascara more for a curl and lift look and it definitely does the trick. If you haven't yet tried roller lash by Benefit then you are seriously missing out. One of the best products I have ever used.

Tiffany & Co Eau De Parfume - Tiffany's is one of those brands you not only associate with Audrey Hepburn but also diamonds and sparkly jewels. No way would you associate it with a perfume. I think this was released towards the end of 2017 but I was never quite able to get my hands on it. I picked it up when I was in duty free at work and I am so glad I did. Not only is the bottle so incredibly beautiful with it's Tiffany blue tint and diamond shape but the scent is incredible. A very subtle fresh scent that I love saving for special occasions. It has a very gentle musky scent with warm notes of patchouli. The fact it comes in a signature blue box as well is just the icing on the cake for this perfume. Its gorgeous and just looks so beautiful sat on my dressing table. I'll definitely be repurchasing this once I've got through this bottle. (Won't be for a while though).

So there we have it all the beauty products that I am currently loving at and can't stop buying at the moment. I hope you have enjoyed this post. Please let me know in the comments below if you use/are also loving any of the products mentioned in this post.
