Do you find yourself stuck on what to buy when you want to try new products? I know I do and I never know where to start. Below I’ve curated a list of some of my favourite makeup, hair and skin care products so if you haven’t come across these before I recommend giving them a go!


#1 Soap Brows by West Barn Co.

RRP: £13

This little pot of soap is bound to last you ages and is perfect for getting the fluffy model brows you’ve always dreamed of. Add a little water or setting spray, dip your wand in and you’re ready to go!

#2 NYX Butter Gloss in ‘Madeleine’

RRP: £5.50

This gloss is hands down my favourite drugstore lip product. It is an amazing nude colour and super cheap so it’s great for everyday wear.

#3 Doll Beauty ‘Danielle’ Lashes

RRP: £10

If you’re looking for a natural wispy looking lash that isn’t too long or dramatic, these Doll Beauty lashes are definitely for you. For someone who doesn’t have lash extensions, these are a great dupe for that sort of look and won’t break your bank account.

#4 LA Girl PRO.conceal HD High Definition Concealer

RRP: £4.95

A holy grail concealer for yourself and your kit. Its super affordable price and extensive shade range make these concealers totally irresistible. They also work well as contouring and highlighting creams!



#5 Charles Worthington Toning Ultra Violet Shampoo

RRP: £7.99

If you’re blonde and love the bleach life you know the struggle of your toner eventually wearing off and those brassy tones shining through. Not cute. This shampoo has to be one of my ultimate favourites for toning down those yellows and giving us the icy realness we all want to have.


#6 L’Oreal Professionnel Smartbond Conditioner

RRP: £17.75

It’s super easy to neglect your hair in comparison to anything else and the constant use of heat will eventually leave you with damage and split-ends. This hair mask/conditioner is the perfect treatment to get your hair back to its silky smooth self. Use this once or twice a week for the best results.


#7 Aussie 3 Miracle Oil Reconstructor

RRP: £9.99

Oil treatment is also essential to repairing and moisturiser damaged ends. I found this Aussie one to worked wonders on my fluffy ends without making my hair feel greasy.



#8 Pixi Retinol Eye Cream

RRP: £22

If you haven’t already got an eye cream in your skincare regime then you need one! It will make your under eyes feel brighter and tighter with fewer wrinkles and darkness. I love this Pixi one and it’s glass applicator makes it feel super cooling when you apply it.


#9 PAWPAW Original Balm

RRP: £6.95

This multi-purpose balm is a holy grail of mine. It can be used for all sorts of things including a moisturiser, nappy cream, lip finisher, for sunburn, skin irritations, as a hair conditioner and for any other skin related purpose you can think of! It’s definitely worth the investment.


#10 Q+A Activated Charcoal Face Mask
