A couple of weeks ago I hadn’t even heard of it, had anyone? One day nowhere and the next everywhere, every other tweet was about The Ordinary, their products were all over Instagram, and Snapchat magazine stories were hailing their foundation a new cult beauty product.
At the same time of this post going live, I’ll be in the sky on the way to Mallorca. Here are the beauty products that were at the top of my list and my essentials for travel.
On a bad skin day (or just a bad day full stop) there’s nothing quite like a high end foundation to reassure you that you’re covered. Don’t get me wrong there are plenty of really great high street foundations, but they’re very every day. Sometimes you just need that something extra, a foundation that you can wear to make you feel (and look) better. Birthdays, Christmas, holidays, nights out, interviews, weekends, the list goes on… a good high end foundation has got your back though the good times and the bad. I’ve put together my top three (not in order) of recommendations if you’re on the hunt for your BFF (best foundation forever).
Long gone are the simple times of popping into Superdrug to pick up my favourite Impulse or So?… body sprays. Nowadays, to the dismay of my bank account, I’m definitely someone who preaches investing in luxury fragrance. My taste in perfume is probably best described as fresh, I love clean and sharp scents; think citrus fruits, ocean waves and freshly cut grass. Refreshing smells that wake me up and cheer me up. There are so many gorgeous luxury fragrances designed for Spring and these are my favourites.
I’ve spent years being fed-up of having thin and lifeless hair. However, it’s only recently that I’ve placed a larger importance on achieving more healthy hair. The most instrumental step was in finding a great hairdresser. One who listens to my goals and either is helpfully honest about how realistic they are or proactive in making them a reality.
I’ve had my fair share of hairdressers that take too much off the ends and leave you deflated. For a long while before I found my hairdresser, I spent so much time and money on products full of promises, some empty and thankfully, some not. Regardless, it took a very long time to find which products actually work for me. I genuinely think that my hairdresser and current routine have saved my hair. I’m so much happier because it has become thicker and healthier.
