I realised that a while ago I said I'd start doing a monthy 'beauty favourites' post. I haven't really stuck to it - and by 'really', I mean I did it once. Soz. The truth is, I don't change beauty products that often any more and I really do think that's because, after years of trying and testing, I've found some really good products that I just can't beat. I'm also much more into fashion than beauty at the moment - I've explained before that I'm always on one or the other, I've just been on clothes for quite a while now! Anyway, I thought I'd do a post today to show you what some of these much-more-than-just-a-monthly-favourite products are.
These are products that I purchase again and again, and plan to do so until I die/they get discontinued.
1. Superdrug Vitamin E Gentle Micellar Solution - I've tried many a micellar water (what a great sentence), but this is by far the best on the market. It's gentle on the skin, doesn't dry it out and, somehow, it manages to remove all my make-up in two big cotton pads. For reference, I wear Estee Lauder Double Wear (basically cement), so that's a big achievement. My skin is really sensitive, and this formula keeps it clear, super soft and balanced.

2. Soap & Glory Supercat Liquid Liner Pen - I struggle with every aspect of eye liner, but I love it so much that I voluntarily embark on the struggle every morning. This liner pen makes things a whole lot easier than they used to be. It's the perfect eyeliner for people with shaky hands, as it's a stiff pen that you have full control over. Importantly though, it has a real fine tip so you can still create a natural flick at the side. It stays on all day, and it's super black. It's everything I've ever wanted in a liner and more - if you haven't yet, you need to try this!
3. TRESemme Heat Defence Spray - You're probably thinking, a heat defence spray? Surely that's nothing special. But it is - because it's much more than that. This spray transforms my hair from dry and frizzy, to super soft and 'manageable' (as much as I hate that overused cliche hair word!). For me, this is like my spray-in conditioner as well as my heat protectant. I use it before I dry, and before I straighten and I'd be lost without it.
