01. I was going to turn this post into a “must have in your collection” for beauty products, but I also have a bit of news to share!
The products above are all ones I truly believe that no girl (or guy, we don’t discriminate here at gp.com) should ever live without. Of course, you will have heard of the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, it really does live up to the hype. A beautiful, natural creamy cleanser which will remove every trace of makeup and really deep cleanse for lovely fresh skin. A favourite of mine, I use this every day, twice a day!
Now, Sudocrem isn’t the most glamourous of products but it really does heal all. I can’t live without this stuff, and I know it’s loved by all (even Cheryl Cole who apparently uses it on her spots overnight). It’s antiseptic properties mean it’s great for blemishes, sores, eczema, dry skin… definitely something you should have in your collection at all times.
Another product which has a lot of hype surrounding it is the NARS Orgasm Powder Blush which is definitely my favourite blush ever (which is saying something as my collection is huge!). It gives you such a lovely peachy glow which a slight shimmer.
Next up is Models Own nail polishes, the one pictured is the ever popular Juicy Jules but I have a fair few of their polishes now and I love them. They’re a good price and great quality, they don’t go gloopy over time, dry quickly and last well. Other favourite shades of mine include Jade Stone, Coral Reef, Fuzzy Peach and Bloo Boo.
MACs Studio Fix Fluid foundation is my “go to” foundation, I reach for it most days and if I do decide to try something different, I always end up coming back to this. It’s a natural finish but great coverage which lasts all day.
Finally, Soap and Glorys Breakfast Scrub is my all time favourite body exfoliator. It smells amazing, truly incredible! This is an abrasive scrub which is great to give your body a good cleanse (and also very good for removing fake tan). I’ve had this since Christmas, and use it rather a lot so it’s well worth the money.
02. Finally my moving day has come. I’m nervously waiting to get going, I feel sad about leaving Leeds as I do love this city, and I’m moving even further away from Scotland but I’m so excited about the opportunities London will bring.
