I am always blogging about my latest finds and my newest purchases so this time I decided to fill you in on what I use in my beauty routine on a daily basis.
First thing I do when I awake is brush my teeth...I hate that furry feeling in my mouth (no rude jokes please!!!!).
I used to smoke (bold me!!!) but I am off them 2 years (Yeah to me!!!!)...However my teeth has remained slightly stained so I was constantly on the outlook for a whitening toothpaste that worked. And this one actually does. I have been using the Beverly Hills Formula Perfect White for about a month and my teeth are definitely 2 shades whiter already.
I then clean my face using the Garnier Micellar Water followed by my Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser. I know it may sound silly but I love these Boots Cotton Wool Pads. They are double sided and don't leave fluff on your skin. And they are cheap as chips.
I then moisturise using Vichy LiftActiv. It is a little outside my "age" bracket but I got a sample and loved the feel and texture of the cream. It melts straight into my skin and makes a perfect base for makeup. I also use the LiftActiv night cream. For eye cream I use the NeoStrata Skin Active Intensive Eye Therapy. It reduces puffiness and helps ward off the dreaded crow's feet. And the little bottle seems to be lasting me FOREVER!!! but I'm not complaining.
I have used the same hairbrush since I was a child....well obviously I have bought a new one. The Denman D4 hairbrush has smooth round-ended pins that don't pull the hair and is perfect for getting perfectly sleek hair.
I hate waxing..the pain is just too much for me. So in between waxing (and to delay it as much as possible) I use the Wilkinson Sword Quattro 2 in 1 Bikini Razor. This double ended tool has a blade on one side perfect for shaving your legs and underarms. And the other end has a small trimmer perfect for keeping your bikini area all nicely groomed and under control.
I changed from aerosol deodorant a few years back because when I shaved my underarm the spray would irritate my skin. So a friend recommend the Dove Deodoran Stick because it moisturises and protects the skin. It does the job perfectly ( I don't smell throughout the day) so I haven't changed to anything else.
And lastly before I go out the door I spritz myself with my favourite summer perfume. D&G 3 L'Imperatrice reminds me of holidays and exotic fruits. I am no good at describing scents but this is just beautiful. It isn't overpowering yet lasts all day and I just LOVE it. As you can see from the picture at the top of the page I am nearly all out but I will definitely be repurchasing.
And that's it...My everyday routine and the products I use. What is your favourite basic everyday items?
Until next time...As always...Be Happy!!!
