Top 10 Beauty Buys - TAG

Earlier this month I celebrated 1 Month Blog Birthday by saying thank you to you all for the amazing support you've shown me. I also mentioned that I would do a post later in the month on a subject that you had requested. Thanks for all the suggestions - I really liked the idea of a Top 10 Beauty Products of all times, so that's the subject of today's post.

Picking my favourite 10 products is much more difficult than it sounds. There are so many great products available in all price ranges, and since I love trying new products and always look forward to new releases, my list of favourites keep on changing. But there are some items that I either keep going back to, or would not want to be without and that's the type of product that ended up on my Top 10 in the end, and interestingly enough I do actually also have 8 of these products at the moment. You may recognise some of then from previous posts, and some will be reviewed very soon.

So here's the Top 10 in no particular order (the numbering is just so that I can link to them in the description):

1. Clarins Beauty Flash Balm - This is my Cinderella product, an amazing primer that adds radiance to the skin and you can see the results immediately. We will ALL be looking fabulous at the ball!

2. Caudalie Beauty Elixir - I always have one of these in my handbag. It's a lovely aromatig facial spray that adds instant moisture and radiance to skin. Perfect for an afternoon pick me up.

3. Batiste Dry Shampoo in Tropical - I would never be without a dry shampoo, and for me Batiste is the best. Cheap, super value for money and a great quick fix for dull or oily hair with loads of lovely fresh scents, although Tropical is definitely my favourite.

4. Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask - Gorgeous smelling over night mask that melts into the skin, boosting moisture and you'll wake up with bright and peachy soft, hydrated skin. Every house should have one.

5. Clarins Santal Face Treatment Oil - The best soothing and balancing oil I've ever used. It's perfect for dry skin and rehydrates as well as relaxes you with it's unbelievable warm and luxurious scent. You only need to massage in a tiny drop and it lasts a long time. SOOOO GOOD!

6. Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Celestial - Great value for money lip gloss that gives very intense colour, plumps and adds a silky sheen to your lips. If I was only allowed to have one single lip product (oh how cruel...) it would be Apocalips.

7. Estée Lauder Resilience Lift Eye Creme - Intensely moisturing eye cream that helps to support the skins natural elasticity, with a luminising effect that immediately makes the eye area look bright. Lovely for tired, "crepey" eyes.

8. Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in Beige - Fresh smelling hydrating foundation that gives a super natural radiance and healthy glow. In my opinion one of the best drug store foundations available.

9. L'Oréal False Lash Telescopic Mascara in Black - Gives very long luscious eye lashes with an excellent long thin brush, that easily reaches even the shortest of eye lashes for extra volume.

10. REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask - Lovely orange smelling peel mask that removes dead skins cells and makes your skin look radiant and healthy. Absolutely brilliant for a deep cleanse or decongestant to rebalance your skin. Yes it's a super hyped product, but it definitely deserves all the raving reviews.

    1. They are so lovely to use - the only thing is it can be tricky finding the right shade, and sometimes I've had to mix 2 of them... Xx

  9. I only have one apocolips and it's celestial and I love it! :) That's the only product I have on this list but I have tried the exilir before and it was so lovely! I was thinking about this tag and I'm not sure I have 10 products to put on it, maybe not even 5 at the moment, but I will bookmark it and keep it in mind for the future :)
