Another Friday…so it must be time for ‘Show Us Your Life’ (or “suyl”, as I’ve taken to calling it, which if you capitalised looks a little like it could be the latest celeb baby name sweeping the globe). And this week Kelly wants us to share our beauty hints and tips.
First things first – water and sleep are truly the most important weapons in your arsenal as you battle to be beautiful, I think. I know this, and yet am typing this today with humungous bags under my eyes because once again I didn’t get my forty winks last night (more like thirty three and a third). I also think that all the truly beautiful people I am lucky enough to know are kind, sweet, and lovely…I think what’s inside totally manifests itself on the outside!
That said – here are some of my go to products for when you need a little help…
I love the Sanctuary range. I grew up with eczema and sensitive skin, and to this day still moisturise one to three times a day (I have thirsty skin!). Their body butter is amazing, smells divine, and does the job brilliantly. It’s pricey, but lasts a fair while, so I’ll use it. When I’m budgeting, however, my next favourite moisturiser is Tesco’s cocoa butter – it’s a total steal, feels divine (leaving soft, non greasy skin), and smells good too!
A range I love is Philosophy. Who doesn’t want to smell of baked goods or fresh fruit? Matthew got me a box of treats from there for Christmas which I may start dipping into this evening! I also love their fragrances – I’m wearing ‘inner grace’ today.
Another fragrance I love, and which I always get compliments on is ‘Happy’ by Clinique. I love the fresh fruity notes to it! I wear this most often and am frequently told I smell good / delicious when I wear it….that’s good enough for me!
For hair, I tend to just let the barnet do as it wishes, but Brilliant Brunette shampoo and conditioner really help it stay in condition.
Makeup, I kind of draw a blank on. I wear it maybe a dozen times a year, but am at the age now where I think a little bit daily might be useful. I’d love to hear about your tips and picks in the comments.
Right, I’m off to read everyone elses ideas now….
