Beauty products have a tendency of so becoming incredibly hyped up, that no-one can even murmur a criticism. However, there are some products which deserve their hype and more.
- Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream, many companies try to copy this multi-purpose healing balm but nothing comes close. Since the first tube I bought, I’ve never been without it. I use it for everything – cuts, blisters, chapped lips, dry cuticles. I know a lot of people hate the smell (I use it that much, I don’t notice it anymore) but it’s now available in fragrance free.
- Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers, I have long, reasonably thick eyelashes which are so straight, they point downwards. I’ve tried dozens of eyelash curlers, both normal and heated and none of them worked until I got these, now I have perfectly curled eyelashes.
- Revlon Lip Butters, some tinted lip balms are just lip colours with no moisturising benefits and others are just lip balm with no colour but this is everything in one – moisturising, good colour pay off, available in tons of colours and they won’t break the bank.
- Nails Inc is my favourite nail brand, the Kensington top and base coat is the only one I use and most of the polishes in my collection are Nails Inc. During the summer I mostly wear Shoreditch or St James Street on my toes and if I can’t decide on a fingernail colour, I’ll wear Basil Street or Elizabeth Street.
