A few of my staples…
Despite it being a reoccurring theme, I’m still mildly surprised every time all my daily staples run out at the exact same time. Last week I said goodbye to my serum, moisturiser and body wash all within an hour of each other – which sounds more dramatic than it was, but you know what I mean. Absurd behaviour. I also noticed my mascara was looking a bit worse for wear too, so of course I headed to Cult Beauty to load up on my go-to products.
I always love trying new products when I can – I usually mix up my haircare often, and I’m happy to try new blushers, brow products and highlighters, but there are some finds that I just refuse to be without.
Honest Beauty Hydrogel Cream; my facialist recommended I try this when she did a skincare program for me, and I haven’t looked back since. This is my fourth tub of the stuff and I really think it’s the product that has saved my tricky skin. It’s light yet super hydrating, which is perfect for my blemish-prone, dehydrated complexion, and it seems to work well all year round, providing I use a hydrating serum and a face mist sandwiched in there too.
I can’t imagine every using another mascara now I’ve discovered this, it is absolutely the ultimate products for thick, fluttery lashes in my opinion. I think what sets this apart from the rest is that is doesn’t smudge at all – I have hooded lids and like a more dewy finish to my makeup, which usually always results in mascara rubbing against my brow bone no matter what I do. Trust me when I say that this doesn’t transfer – nor does it clump, flake or go gloopy over time. I’ve been through 4 or 5 tubes of it now and I doubt I’ll ever use anything else.SHOP THE MASCARA
Versed Brightening Tightening Mask; I’m cheating a little here as there’s definitely products I repurchase more often than this mask, but I don’t use this every day so of course it’s going to last a little longer. I really love Versed as a brand, I like their fuss-free approach and I notice a difference from first use too.
This mask makes my skin feel like new – I use it a couple of times a month for a quick at-home facial. I love that it clears the complexion without drying it out, that feels like such a rare treat from a clay mask!
NARS Sheer Glow Foundation; I tried to cast my mind back to when I first started using Sheer Glow but seemingly I can’t think back that far… so we must conclude it has been 10+ years! Wild. I’ve been buying bottles of this longer than I’ve been with my husband – how romantic. Anyway, if you like a medium/full coverage (although it is lovely and buildable so can be quite sheer if you use less) base with a dewy finish that lasts the entirety of the day, this is the one. You have to buy the pump separate but I just swap it from finished to fresh bottle each time I buy a new one. It is my ride or die, this foundation.
Of course, there are many more products I regularly repurchase but this is just a quick rundown of a recent order. Next time I stock up, I’ll be sure to share some more favourites with you.
Have you tried any of these?
