On the top shelf…
I have always been obsessed with beauty products (really, Kate?) and even though I feel like I’m at the point where I really know my skin and what it needs, I love trying new products! More often than not I have a refined selection of lotions and potions that I’m reaching for on a daily basis and then I swap in new finds or repurchases all the time!
My go-to’s are always on rotation and differ depending on the condition of my skin and factors such as weather, breakouts and travelling, the best finds sit on my beauty shelves in my bathroom so I can reach for ’em when I need them!
Here are just a few of the products I’m using and loving daily right now…
OUIA is a long-term favourite of mine when it comes to skin and hair care. The Rose Hair & Body Oil is a must have product with frizz-fighting, skin smoothing properties. As well as smelling absolutely delicious, it is lightweight enough that it doesn’t leave my hair or skin feeling greasy. I just pump a few drops into my hands straight after a shower (when my skin and hair is still damp) and glide through my damp locks, across my chest and down my arms and legs to lock in moisture. Heavenly!
This Works Morning Acid Pads are a new in staple for me, they’re infused with vitamin B3 to brighten skin and are super quick and easy to use, but with a big impact. I sweep one over my face after a quick cleanse for a bit of a boost to my complexion, kick-starting my day in an instant. They’re a total God-send for the days I’m in a rush and don’t have time for my full routine!
One of the latest additions to my hydration station (heh) is the Josh Rosebrook Hydrating Accelerator. This must-have mist is one of the best facial mists I’ve ever tried, and it’s perfect for sandwiching between your skincare products for that extra hit of hydration!
I use it in the mornings and evenings for an extra shot of fast-absorbing moisture, spritzing it on after cleansing, and again layering a mist between my serum and moisturiser too.
Hair washing can be such an ordeal at time, I try to wash my fine hair as little as possible and one of the products that has helped me lather up less is this wonder worker! I’ve honestly tried and tested every dry shampoo on the market but I always come back to the Klorane Dry Shampoo with Nettle , it ticks all my boxes! It smells lovely and clean, doesn’t leave a questionable powdery look to my locks, and my hair actually looks clean after use – tick, tick, tick!
I really do look forward to a bath all day when I’m feeling a little under the weather, it’s the ultimate way to chill… and also have some time away from my phone! I usually have a bottle of this The White Company Sleep Calming Bath Soak on hand to see me through – I drizzle a few drops into by my bath for a spa-worthy experience.
I don’t feel like myself unless I’m a little bit bronzed, and right now I’m loving the St Tropez Bronzing Gel. Usually I go for something with a guide colour but I find the slight sheen from this lets me know where I’ve applied. It goes on effortlessly with a mitt, feels moisturising on the skin and gives me a beautiful golden tan in just a few hours!
I’m still pretty new to the concept of Beauty Pie (as in, I absolutely do not understand it) but I’ve had so much success with their products that I’m a member regardless! I recently got the Overnight Skin Perfector and I’ve been really impressed at how soft and even it leaves my skin. It contain retinol so it’s something I use only a few times per week, but it’s a lovely overnight wonder for bright, clear complexions!
I could be here all day talking about my most loved beauty staples at the moment, but at some point I have to cut myself off! Have you got a beauty shelf of everyday favourites?
